So, he wrecked due to his own drivers error DIDDN'T get hurt and wanted to sue cause his airbag diddnt deploy? I'd say he diddnt impact anything severely enough to necessitate its use. Being uninjured proves that.

On another note, in 20 more years when we have more then airbag riding suits, but airbag font ends on our forks that deploy upon impact, we'll laugh about inflating vests & hard shell helmets

I was really, really tempted to say, "Tell that to the mother whose infant was decapitated by an airbag", just to see what it's like to make a lame, morally smug anecdotal argument. But I won't.

(Now do you see why anyone who responds in a debate with "Tell that to..." should be kicked square in the nuts?)

"The dumbest part was the entire chapter he devoted to explaining in gory detail how tens of thousands of Americans would be killed or maimed by airbags if the government forced them on us. "These EXPLOSIVES are going to be in YOUR CAR...blah blah blah." What a dope."

He certainly doesn't sound any dumber than the people that fell for the Global Warm....err Climate Change scam.

Hey, I just wish people who responded in a debate would actually respond to what was said.

I'm going to try to explain this once again: the warnings in his book had nothing to do with people getting hit by airbags. That threat, which has some validity to it, completely escaped him. He said that the devices used to deploy the bags would deteriorate and explode or cause fires, and that every car with airbags would become a ticking time bomb. That was totally and completely wrong, it never happened.

I just wish people who responded in a debate would actually respond to what was said.

I did. I said he wasn't any dumber than the Global Warm...err Climate Change chumps. That would include 99% of all Liberals on the planet. The difference is that Iacocca won't cost us trillions to 'solve' something that doesn't exist.

No one is always right of always wrong. Just because he's wrong about airbags (though considering the terrible state of automobile quality at the time one might logically infer such a probability) doesn't mean he's wrong about the lack of real leadership in this country. We just saw that lack again last night with another Fidel-like overlong paean to himself from Zero. How about "Free College for everyone paid for by Ken's grandkids!"?

BTW the actual article was an attack on Bush but is as timely today.

As far as I know, LongRide is the only person who never makes mistakes. Everybody else does, like getting suckered into posting a phoney article. It could happen to anyone. Likewise, when someone posts pages of rhetoric from an alleged "wise man," it's useful to point out that the "wise man" can pull a pretty big boner, even in his area of expertise.
