Default Re: How politics works

"Suddenly last week," only if you get your news from the Action Team at 6 & 11. The State Senate passed their bill last year. The Legislature passed it two weeks ago after the big ABATE rally.



Regardless of the arguments about health, the fact remains that Indiana and Ohio don't require helmets, so tourists will continue to have to put on a lid when they get to the state line. Given that the Gov's "jobs programs" seem to revolve around minimum-wage tourist service, I was certain that she'd sign...

The saddest thing about socialized medicine is that it means a virtual halt to medical discovery and advancement. No incentive. Worse, when medicine becomes a govt entity and subject to the usual CYA and credit stealing of bureaucrats, innovation will become completely stifled.

Speaking of not riding motorcycles, how is the CB750 project coming along?

"I do not consider it a personal choice when the public ends up paying" dmorga1 if it werenÂ’t for a government mandated socialist program, the public wouldn't pay a dime for the self inflicted problems of those who make poor decisions. Your use of that old excuse for limiting the free will of others is an endorsement of socialism.

Well, I think you made the point that socialism has everything to do with helmet laws, exactly as you defined socialism. When the government pays for your care, then the government has a vested interest in limiting your freedom to make a mistake. Foolhardy behavior that was once a personal problem (no helmet, forgetting to brush teeth, smearing your countertops with raw chicken) is now a public problem.



Try not to publicly lose your shiat again, Mssr. Dower, this is not a commentary on the goodness or badness of socialism. But you argued one thing, then somehow concluded the exact opposite. Hats off.



When did American's become so intolerant of speech, and different opinions. Is this just the nature of the internet. You can hide behind your little screen in the dark, and insult someone with impunity. Would you be this rude to your friends, families, coworkers, or just a guy working at the grocery store?



This phenomenon is hardly limited to American's (!) -- and welcome to the intarwebs, n00b. But you're a natural -- "hide behind your little screen in the dark" is nearly the unbeatable "typing from your mother's basement" bludgeon of internet debate. I'm getting a "Million Dollar Baby" vibe about you, scrapper.



I am just stunned by the lack of manners and rudeness. It is inexcusable, and you should be ashamed of your behavior. What would your parents think?



I, too, am shocked, shocked to find this lack of manners on the internet. Whoops, I just realized I fell for a parody. Well played, sir.
