Thank Goodnes for the Feds

Thank you, Kpaul, for linking to that webBikeWorld article about NHTSA. The very first paragraph is most instructive:

The mission of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is straightforward: "Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle-related crashes."

Obviously, someone of your intellectual capability is aware that the best way to "save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle-related crashes" among motorcyclists is to eliminate motorcycles. Motorcycles serve society in no useful manner and no amount of engineering, protective gear, or rider training will ever make a motorcycle as "safe" as a Kia Rio (which also gets better gas mileage than my SuperHawk).

Guess what – the people at NHTSA (affectionately known as "Nasties") have figured this out too. A motorcycle ban will be the Nasties first step toward their Utopia of completely socialized mass-transportation.

It is important to remember that the Nasties are a part of our federal government, so we can be sure that they would never fabricate "facts," or monkey with statistics, or even use valid statistics for nefarious purposes. The Nasties are one of many trustworthy federal agencies that are doing everything they can to protect us Americans from our stupid selves.

Thank God and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration! And thank you, Kpaul, for directing our attention to another trustworthy agency of our benevolent federal government.

Re: Thank Goodnes for the Feds

You really are clueless, aren’t you? Or maybe you just slept through world history. Here it is in a nutshell: The really big atrocities of the last 1000 years were executed by governments – the bigger the government, the bigger the atrocity. To be sure, it was always a government with a certifiable bad guy at the top, but it was always a government. Sometimes it was even a democratically elected government.

Not a "shadow" government, either. Every one of the big, bad governments was right out there for all to see.

Don't like history? Pick up a newspaper and read about the goings-on in Sudan, Sri Lanka, China, or any country with a name that ends in "stan."

Am I paranoid? When it comes to big, powerful governments, you’re Goddamned right I am.

(BTW, I think you misspelled your name on your "Fake Mail" address. Nice touch, O brilliant one)
