← Texas approves 'One State Under God' license plate

My country is so idiotic that they allow auto dealer's to put a wrap around license plate holder which advertises the name of the dealership- and they often obscure the actual numbers and letters of the plate! I guess free market advertising trumps recognizing the plate for identification. In fact, the free market often trumps things it shouldn't in the USA. I know- nothing new.

Example? I thought it was common to have laws which prohibit covering the plate number, which Texas in particular does. There was even a big stink over it a few years ago, because people were worried that it was worded too vaguely and might be used to prohibit frames which covered parts of the plate other than the number.
