Re: John Burns: an exercise in contradiction

Where do you get the idea I embrace those laws? Just the opposite, but I understand the reason they exist is BECAUSE of highly visible, highly abrasive groups like ABATE.

I also agree that a lot, if not the bulk, of our freedoms are gone. To pick out "having to wear a helmet" is like complaining about one pebble in a boulder field. Why don't the AMA and ABATE complain about something that would actually help us all, like getting cell phones banned while driving? Whatever happened with the New England Journal of Medicine's report a few years ago which said that was just as dangerous as drunk driving?

The old slippery slope eh? Look around, we're already at the bottom of the gulch. Do you think we'd be more free riding helmetless? When we already have to keep it below 65mph, with functional head and taillights, turn signals, blinkers, with current registration, insurance, with less than 0.8 BAC, what am I leaving out? Helmet laws are the red cape for the ABATE bulls and other hoofed mammals to stupidly charge.

Car drivers don't have to wear helmets because there are like 200 bazillion of them in the U.S., and about what? 0.5% that many motorcyclists you simp. They do have to wear seatbelts (and there was hellacious caterwauling over that).



The majority rules. If you are a loud, obnoxious ant in a room full of cows, expect to get stomped on.

Re: Democrats and Socialists......

Sorry. Let's go the opposite direction with your crusty ass slippery slope solipsism. If all 50 states abandon helmet laws, and thousands more idiots crash their brains out, wouldn't it make it way easier to outlaw motorcycles entirely?

Dang, and to think I though all that stuff was racism. I had no idea the Sierra Club was out to slaughter Jews and Cambodians! Thanks for the headsup Seruzawa. Um, you got guns?

Mikey, I have no need for Complete Thoughts for Dummies, as long as I have complete access to guys like you. It's amazing there aren't more of you tonight. It gives one hope, doesn't it? jb

Re: The AMA advocates helmet use Burnsie

Well then I'm dumb. If they support use of helmets, how can they also be pals with ABATE? You'll have to `splain that to me. As far as I'm concerned, if one kid brains himself as the result of Uncle Bob, or Billy down at the meat packing plant who's a big ABATE guy, persuading him not to wear a helmet in the name of Freedom--then that one kid is one too many, and his blood is on ABATE's hands. And the AMA is an accessory to the crime. Just my opinion.
