I'll bet this fine perspective of yours will go right out the f'ing window the minute "they" pass a law that says you have to do something you don't think you should have been doing anyway.

Hmmm...sounds suspiciously like "he whose name must not be spoken." Somebody leave the screen door unlocked?

.... the thankfully banned idiot boy is not alone. Probably the majority of people buy into this "friendly fascist" nonsense.

As I read this, the words of my neuro-surgeon ring in my ears as I laid on the table after being hit from behind at 80. That helmet saved your life, but I don't why you don't have a broken neck. Most like you live, but spend the rest of their lives as a quadriplegic. I wonder if the insurance community would like carrying that cost...
BTW, what is the #1 cause of death in automobile crashes? Head trauma. I say helmets should be mandatory in ALL vehicles! Just think of the lives that would be saved....

It's a fact. Detailed studies have shown that cellphone=using cagers are just as dangerous as DUI drivers. Since the DUI folkers don't have a huge lobby like the telecomm industry, they aren't allowed to practice their chosen driving abberation...but the cell cagers are.

Here's the main difference: the drunk driver will sober up!
