italianguy63 saidWHY DO WE NEED A NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING LAW, WHEN NOBODY ENFORCES THE NO DRIVING WHILE TALKING ON A HANDHELD PHONE ? EVERYWHERE I DRIVE, EVERYONES TALKING ON A HANDHELD PHONE. IF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ENFORCED ALL THESE LAWS, WE COULD BRING DOWN THE FEDERAL DEFICIT
Humans are a weird species.
There's no evidence to believe in false belief systems, and, yet, many folks believe the malarkey they were indoctrinated with since birth. Many folks are very weak-minded, when you think about it.
Obesity kills folks like flies, to the tune of 2 million folks annually, yet, folks stuff themselves, and at a huge cost to society, and to themselves.
Insurance companies skim 35% profit off of sick and injured people, yet, some folks defend them in the only modern country without universal health care. 10,000s of folks die needlessly annually.
Real wages have declined for decades, and, since 1967, more wealth has moved to the top 1% of the country so that now 1% of the folks control 95% of the wealth, yet...folks support this distorted form of capitalism / greed for the wealthiest, with the wrongful vision that anyone can do it. They can't.
It's been known for 40 years how incredibly dangerous smoking is and its huge cost to our society, yet, folks spend $50 a carton for cancer sticks at convenience stores around the country. The poison themselves daily without regard to themselves or society.
Folks know that driving with distractions, such as texting, or talking on the phone, are incredibly dangerous, but, they do it anyway. They live in an I,I,I, me,me,me world where everything revolves around them.
We've know how HIV is transmitted since the 80's, yet, morons fuck bareback every day, then, plead the victim when they get sick.
Many humans are inherently stupid in their behavior, like it, or not. They're irresponsible, and blame others for their own bad behavior.
Texting while driving, statistically, is 15 times more dangerous than driving drunk. You'd think a decent person would care about others enough to not do it, but, they do.
And, for those commenting on hands-free cell phone use while driving, it's not any better at preventing accidents than hands-on cell phone solutions, statistically. If you drive distracted you can kill yourself, and others. Do your homework on these topics.
Pay the deficit with traffic citations? How about just doing the right thing by your fellow man, and being a decent human being?
Illiteracy plagues our country. We have folks who are to lazy to study on anything and believe whatever fluff is presented the current day. They are incredibly easy to fool into about anything.
The human race has its work cut out for it.
