Cmon guys, you live in America. Give thanks. Most of the world is poor, hungry and live on 5 bucks a day. Here you are complaining about a stupid helmet law that inconveniences your right to some wind in your hair. Get over it. As an African-American, while they done it to us me without vaseline, for much of American history, I thank the Guvment for the right to vote. Wary of "big government" I think its our current guvment has has outspent most of the recent liberal governments, with its stupid war and pandering to large corporations. All I am saying is that, given the state of the world today, wearing helment ain't that bad.
