Our entire court system, and every other govt' run bureaucracy need to be replaced by for profit competing private enterprises. It is only then that will stop being treated like someoneÂ’s privately owned livestock, and start to be responsible for ourselves. Down with the nanny state!

Keep listening Dave. A wise old man once gave me this advice, "I never learned anything while I was talking". Seruzawa has been around the block a few times, and what he says usually bears consideration.

I can't stand Big Brother rules from the government. Hovever, Joe Citizen needs to pony up to the flip side of freedom and that is called Responsibility.



So, no helmet and you get in a wreck, if you have the money, insurance or whatever is required to pay for your medical costs, rehab etc., then make your own choice concerning your personal safety. That's what used to make America great and free and is the way it should be again.



If you can't pay for any of that, then I don't think my insurance pool, my tax dollars or anything else that belongs to society at large should be spent, used etc. to take care of your sorry ass. Problem is, for everyone of us who don't want the government to take care of us and who are willing to accept responsibility for ourselves, there seems to be ten others who can't be relied on think for themselves even when their lives depend on it.

If you don't hate Bush and wish him dead then you're a Bush lover. Didn't you know that?

Yeah, and if you ever get hurt doing something stupid - like riding a motorcycle at all - the same applies to you. 99% of the car drivers out there agree with me.

Default His point is still valid.

Actually his point still makes sense... I pay for extra medical insurance to ride a motorcycle above and beyond my normal health insurance. The reason I do this is in the case that my normal health insurance was to reject my claim because I was riding a motorcycle. I think if you ride without a helmet you should buy more coverage i.e. call it no lid (idiot) coverage... If you ride with out a lid and you don't have coverage too bad you will have to pay for your hospital bills yourself. Of course, in kpaul's America every U.S. citizen would have basic health insurance. Like the rest of the industrialized world.
