STUPID LAWS

Here's a little change of pace from all of the Obama-hates-white-people talk. ☺

I got pinched today – 72 in a 55. Guilty as charged (in fact, it was probably closer to 80). Admittedly, I didn’t buy a motorcycle due to my love of staying within the speed limit. However, it still prompted me to write the guest post that ALa has continually said that she would welcome.

Apparently 72 in a 55 will normally lighten your checkbook by $188 here. Not today... I was about 1/4 mile past one of those signs that notifies drivers of road work being done, and in the fine print below it mentions "Fines Double". There wasn't a "road worker" or a flagger in sight, nor was there a DOT truck, excavating equipment, flare, orange barrel, or even a cone in the road. Nonetheless, that kind officer felt the need to "enhance" my fine to $376. I'm going to court on this one, even though I'll probably lose & have to pay court costs on top of it. I would support this law in any situation where there actually were traffic flow changes (lane closures, etc), or where there were workers in the process of doing their jobs – obviously a dangerous situation for them. In this case, I do not agree with the enhancement, which leads me to another beef that I have with our lawmakers...

I believe that laws should be made to protect other people, and/or other peoples’ property. What I mean by that is that breaking & entering should be illegal, the same with assault, robbery, rape, murder, etc. I don’t believe our government should have the right to create laws that force me to protect myself. What am I getting at? Helmet laws for motorcyclists. (I could make the same points about seatbelt laws.) What harm am I doing to anyone, or their property, if I choose not to wear a helmet? ALa has a valid argument every time I bring this up, so I’ll say it for her – if I get into an accident when I’m not wearing a helmet, and if my injuries are such that I need medical treatment, and if I do not have sufficient medical insurance to cover the costs of that treatment then the taxpayers shouldn’t have to pick up the slack. Quite frankly, I agree. (That’s why I pay higher premiums which result in $250,000 worth of extra medical coverage in the event of a mishap.) However, look at it this way – if I get in the same accident, with a DOT approved helmet, then I could possibly devastate my body & keep my brain intact. What then? Would you make the argument that I shouldn’t have been riding a motorcycle at all? Or would you approve taxpayer money to cover my medical bills while I live in a quadriplegic state for the rest of my life? The topic here should be taxpayer liability instead of laws that take away my rights as an American. I guess what it comes down to is this – maybe a bit extreme, but still - should we outlaw skydiving due to the danger involved? Mountain climbing? (I hear the stories every year about climbers getting lost on Mt. Hood – and the Nat’l Guard goes looking for them every time... Who’s footing that bill???) Snowboarding / skiing? Outlaw anything that some politician deems to be reckless or risky?

I love my country. I’m probably amongst the most patriotic people here. But sometimes I really wonder about my government…

The footwear are accessible with or without having a man-made sole for additional toughness. You won't find every woman in spin shorts because they are wore by women in gyms and exercise parlors. Identifying which boots are authentic and which are not is not an easy task.
