"Fourteen of the deaths in Maine last year involved riders who were at least 35 years old. Overall, the 35-44 and 45-54 age groups here have each accounted for more deaths than young riders over the past five year"
"Those liberal democrats up in Maine are up to no good. Those commies would like to force motorcyclist to be responsible to their employers, loved ones, insurers and taxpayer-funded programs, such as Medicaid and Medicare. Who needs those commie programs any way.Those slime ball, American hating, liberal do gooders want to require motorcyclist to wear helmets. Traitor and liberal Rep. Walter A. Wheeler Sr., D-Kittery is the sponsor of the tryranical law. Be sure and join Bill O'Rielly on Fox tonight as he digs up the dirt on Watler Wheeler Sr."
Anonymous, I'll make a deal with you. I'll support your riding a motorcycle if you'll drop any and all life and health insurance and be prepared to simply die if you are injured as a result of your desire to ride such dangerous vehicles. Oh, and by the way you'lll also have to avoid swiming pools, skiing, rock climbing, scuba diving, and bath tubs if you fail to wear the gear approved for such activities, that will be proposed, by the safty-crats of the great nanny state. Wake up and smell the coffee. It's not time that we manage our own sport properly. It's time that we manage our government properly. VWW
I pick up the costs of every smoker that gets cancer, every AIDS patient that didn't wear a condom, every fat ass that has numerous health problems, every deadbeat that doesn't want to work, every drunk and druggie that needs rehab, every kid that's born that had a parent with no money. So everything is going to be fine if we all wear helmets?? Fix the other 100 million problems that will save me 1000 times more money, and I'll wear my helmet every day and twice on Sunday.
Insurance companies should be allowed to place whatever restrictions they choose upon their customers in a voluntary transaction, who, if I am not mistaken, are free to choose NOT to be their customers at any time. The question should be "should government be allowed to tell anyone how to run their business?"
