Yeah Bush was barely over the limit when he was a younger.. but Kennedy
killed a woman and called the cops 10 hours later after making sure she was
dead.

Yeah, a traffic accident at the age of 17.... at an intersection in Midland.
Her and her friend ran a stop sign and hit her friend (not boyfriend) and he
died. http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/e1698.htm She never said she
wasnt driving. Whats sad is just one of the ridiculous stories the liberal
media broke to cause strife in the election of Bush.

But LOL at comparing her to Kennedy... waiting 10 hours to call the police.

And not a damn thing was done to her. You run a stop sign and kill an

BONG! Direct hit! Give that man a cigar!

The war on drugs was conceived by Pres. Nixon as a pretense to give
poilce more power. It allowed them to knock down doors, it loosened
the rules of gathering evidence, it allowed 'selective enforcement'
against minorities, etc. etc. etc. A lot of people saw it as a
slippery slope, and they've been proven right. The war on terror is
the war on drugs on steroids.

Not to mention it was Nixon that gave us the 55mph NMSL which turned
every driver into either a violator of law or someone who was actively
trying to avoid interaction with law enforcement by driving unusually
slow and therefore suspicious.

With the bogus stats from the NMSL, the safety advocates aka control
freaks blossomed. Now we have safety checkpoints where we need to produce
our papers for inspection by authority.

Especially since a national speed limit was not constitutional. The
Fed. Govt. didn't just pass a speed limit because it knew it couldnt.
Instead it threatened states with the loss of their federal highway
money if they didn't each pass their own law.

In some western states (Wyoming, Arizona, I think) if you got caught
between 55 and 65 it was not the same as speeding, you just got a $5
ticket for wasting gas.

Yes Nixon was a very strong 'law and order' president. But it's
funny--Law and Order presidents like Nixon, Reagan and GW Bush never
seem to believe the law applies to -them-.

Actually that's debatable. It could be just that the price of gas
rose sharply so people used less of it (for a while).

Also, you probably know lots of 'experts' were predicting a sharp rise
in traffic deaths after the speed limit was raised back to 65. But it
didn't happen. In the meanwhile both cars and highways had been
completely redesigned with all kinds of safety features . . . . most
mandated by the Fed. Govt. BTW.

It is true, though, that lower average speeds will save some gas.
But I bet it's nothing compared to the gas we could have saved if we'd
stuck with CAFE standards.

You were doing so well until you got to the last sentence. CAFE is just

CAFE was abandoned LONG before the popularization of SUVs. SUVs have

CAFE is still law today. It has not been repealed or rolled back.
To meet the goal of doubling the 1974 passenger car fuel economy average by
1985 (to 27.5 mpg), Congress set fuel economy standards for some of the intervening
years. Passenger car standards were established for MY 1978 (18 mpg); MY 1979
(19 mpg); MY 1980 (20 mpg); and for MY 1985 and thereafter (27.5 mpg). Congress
left the level of 1981-84 standards to the Department to establish administratively.
Subsequently, standards of 22, 24, 26, and 27 mpg were established. For the
post-1985 period, Congress provided for the continued application of the 27.5 mpg
standard for passenger cars, but gave the Department the authority to set higher or
lower standards. From MY 1986 through 1989, the passenger car standards were
lowered. Thereafter, in MY 1990, the passenger car standard was amended to 27.5
mpg, which it has remained at this level.

Depends on what you mean by 'conspiracy'. We could tax cars by engine
size, like they do in Europe. People would buy smaller cars. We
could tax gas up the wazoo, like they do in Europe, and people would
buy smaller cars and consider public transportation more often
(instead we raise the gas prices and the money goes to the oil corps.
who run our government).

Pres. Bush announced (to great fanfare in the press) that he was going
to funnel tens of millions into hydrogen technology. What nobody
mentioned is that this money was coming -out- of govt. research into
electrics and hybrids, technology that is available NOW instead of 30
years from now, if at all. If that's not a conspiracy, what would you
call it?

Depends on what you mean by 'conspiracy'. We could tax cars by engine
size, like they do in Europe.
People would buy smaller cars.
I doubt it. CAFE hasn't worked, nor have gas-guzzler taxes, which make
far more sense than a displacement tax anyway...

Eh, what would *likely* happen is whoever proposed the higher taxes
would be voted out of office the next go-'round. But that doesn't
change the fact that making more fuel efficient vehicles ECONOMICALLY
VIABLE is the only way we'll ever get them. Simply legislating "give us
more fuel efficient cars!" is doomed to failure, because the truth is
that the general public wants big cars, and needs a real incentive to
move away from them. And assertions of various nutjobs to the contrary,
there is no current viable technology that will provide markedly better
economy than we're getting out of vehicles now, at least not without
huge tradeoffs in range, performance, cost of operation, or all three.

Pres. Bush announced (to great fanfare in the press) that he was going
to funnel tens of millions into hydrogen technology. What nobody
mentioned is that this money was coming -out- of govt. research into
electrics and hybrids, technology that is available NOW instead of 30
years from now, if at all. If that's not a conspiracy, what would you
call it?
Stupidity. Hydrogen isn't even a fuel; it's simply an energy storage
technology much like a battery. It takes more energy to make a usable
hydrogen fuel than you get out of it by burning it.

If I were a betting man, I'd be betting on fuel cells. But something
else might win the race - some new ultra-light battery or ultracapacitor
for instance.

Indeed. However, I think it's time to kill the Republican party and
start over with a new, real conservative party without all the religious
right nutjobs, neoconservative imperialists, and ignorant rednecks and
simply concentrate on fiscal conservatism, small government, and minimal
intrusion on personal liberties. The name "Republican" has too many
negative connotations to be viable, at least among thinking people.

No reason to think it would kill the automotive industry. Many people
would love to have a car giving 50 mpg. And there are many other ways
to entice the car buyer to opt for small cars. As i've mentioned
before, we could base penalties for moving violations on the listed
weight of the vehicle or institute an annual gas tax based on vehicle
weights. THINK

BTW, I seem to remember reading somewhere (don't ask where, its been

In a rough estimate, tradityionally, 1/3 of potential energy in fuel
(HHV) goes to powering car, 1/3 is lost via radiator, 1/3 goes out the
exhaust..
Nearly all fuel is burned.
Most gain can be made by cutting drag (including under the car,) and
increasing efficiency of engine, gearboxes, cooling fans and other
components
(How about having the exhaust heat power the AC, like a gas fridge?)

Beside the point, actually. The idea of CAFE standards is that they

90s, we were told, cars would be getting in the mid-30s and we would
have eliminated our need for middle east oil. (Actually at the time
were were importing very little of our oil from the middle east, today
it's about a third.)
You have all the intelligence of a typical congress critter when it comes

We could stop importing oil from middle east entirely by simply
eliminating the taxpayer funded military support. This would encourage
oil companies to seek raw materials from more stable nations in the

Not likely. It would just lead to oil companies buying from a
slightly different set of Islamic dictatorships. Getting oil from
them is easier than getting oil from a South American kleptocracy or
worse, a North American NIMBY country.

Like . . . Venezuela? 8^D Actually, the fastest, simplest and least
painful way to reduce reliance on Middle East oil (or foreign oil in
general) would have been to attack the consumption side of the
equation through conservation measures. Buying from friendlier
sources (Mexico, Norway, etc.) could help, but buying a lot -less-
would help a lot more.

We use at least twice as much energy per person as any other developed
country, including very cold countries like Sweden and Norway, and
very big countries like Australia (and Canada is -both- big and cold).
Over a several-year period we could easily have lowered our
consumption by at least a third with very little pain. This was the
original goal of PROGRESSIVE CAFE standards. Every president since
Carter has announced a plan to address fuel consumption, but Carter
was the only one who actually did anything about it. (Well, at least
he -tried-.)

However, for decades now the top priority of US energy policy has not
really been to improve national security and our economy by reducing
dependance on foreign oil, it has been to maximize oil company
profits. We have never really used very much oil from Iraq, we just
want to -control- that oil. It's been suggested that the primary
motive of Bush41's Gulf War was to keep Iraqi oil off the world market
for a few years, to allow prices to rise. The purpose of Bush43's war
is to secure the oil for the American companies who got him elected.
Is it just a coincidence that the 35 top people in the Bush
admin--Bush himself, Cheney, Rice, Wolfowitz, etc. etc.--all came from
the oil industry?

It is true, though, that lower average speeds will save some gas.
But I bet it's nothing compared to the gas we could have saved if we'd
stuck with CAFE standards.
You were doing so well until you got to the last sentence. CAFE is just
as misguided as the NMSL... probably has HURT our overall fleet fuel
economy by killing off the full sized car and pushing those drivers into
truck-based SUVs.
CAFE was abandoned LONG before the popularization of SUVs.
CAFE is still in place.

BONG! Direct hit! Give that man a cigar!
The war on drugs was conceived by Pres. Nixon as a pretense to give
poilce more power. It allowed them to knock down doors, it loosened
the rules of gathering evidence, it allowed 'selective enforcement'
against minorities, etc. etc. etc. A lot of people saw it as a
slippery slope, and they've been proven right. The war on terror is
the war on drugs on steroids.
Not only that, but it (the war on drugs) has given the police free reign
to commit armed robbery on our highways (especially of minorities). One
need only look at Camden County, GA where the Sheriff rakes in literally
millions from traffic stops and siezing people's cash if they can't
prove that the money was obtained legitimately.

Yes - the war on drunk driving has helped a lot. Everyone now knows
it's a serious crime and people do go to prison for it esp if they kill
someone. That has scared a lot of drunks into not driving . Having
said that, penalties are still not stiff enough. Even first time
offenders should get a five year license suspension and if they're
caught driving then they do the five years in prison. That would just
about eliminate drunk driving.

Has any progress been made in the war on Drunk Driving? Maybe a

Yes - the war on drunk driving has helped a lot. Everyone now knows
it's a serious crime and people do go to prison for it esp if they kill
someone. That has scared a lot of drunks into not driving . Having
said that, penalties are still not stiff enough. Even first time
offenders should get a five year license suspension and if they're
caught driving then they do the five years in prison. That would just
about eliminate drunk driving.
Yeah -- more laws will get people to think rationally when they're drunk.

Penalties for drunk driving have doubled and doubled again in the last
20 years. The acceptable blood alcohol limit has been lowered. Just
another crusade, like the War on Drugs, the War on Terrorism and the
War on Poor People.

Laughing my ass off. It has? Reminds me of the guy who used to live
beside me. One day he came outside with a 24 oz budweiser in his hand,
headed for his car. We chatted for a few minutes, then he informed me
he was late for his court-ordered alcohol abuse program.

So your question of why isn't there a war on drunk drivers was a lie to
begin with, since you admit there is a war on drunk driving. Ok, got
that out of the way, we know you're a liar.

What possible incentive would the states have to do this? They make a
ton of money on alcohol taxes, and throwing people who are barely over
an arbitrary limit for years costing the state hundreds of thousands of
dollars won't put a dent into dd accidents at all.

The REAL problem, for those who might be reading this that can actually
comprehend, are the repeat offenders who are caught at 0.15+ (often WAY
of that). These are the guys that will be killing others, not the guy
who had 2 or 3 beers and is at 0.08.

In Norway the first DUI offense brings an automatic 6-month jail
sentence. Does that eliminate drunk driving? Not at all.

I'm not saying that drunk drivers should go free, but we've doubled
the punishments already and then doubled them again. We're reaching
diminishing returns. We can spend the money better in educating
people (as we did so successfully with tobacco!) Educating kids in
high school about how alcohol works on the brain. Educating drivers
about the dangers, and also how much it will cost them if they get
caught drunk driving.

We can also return to seeing alcoholism (and all addiction) as a
health problem, not a crime problem. Punishment is reactive, it's
after the fact. We should be looking for pro-active solutions to
problems like this.

Now, all we need is to educate drivers on how to drive defensively and
how to react when they encounter a drunk driver (and I don't mean

By the way, moron, speeders and drunk drivers aren't a threat in the
least to me. See, I understand this concept known as "defensive
driving." It's a really neat concept; it allows me to escape,
unscathed, from situations where other people manage to commit
suicide.

Of course, if you're stupid enough to believe that adherence to a
speed limit is the way to obtain vehicular safety, then you're stupid
enough to prove Darwin right.

I *LOVE* when people use their vehicles to prove the validity of Mr.
Darwin's theory.

Thinking of the War on Freedom and smoking, I was watching an old movie
the other day (Smokey and the Bandit II, IIRC) and theere was a scene
that caught my attention when Gleason's character pulled out a smoke
with the Marlboro logo clearly visible on the pack. Could you imagine if
they tried to make that movie today? Just the mere mention of smoking
would have the anit-smoking nanny-nazis wanting to ban the flick - or at

understand that terrorism has more of an effect than just deaths of
people. "Only" 3000 or so people died in the 9/11 attacks, but those
60 minutes affected our economy for 2 years. Million of people were
affected adversely because of the attacks. People who have nothing to
do with the WTC or New York, Pennsylvania, or the Pentagon. Entire

As a matter of fact, I lived in a nation where terrorism was active for
almost a decade and bombs were even planted on my alternate route from
work to home. I woke up each day ready to hear that another blast had
occurred, somewhere.
When I visited the US, I pointed out how lax we were in this regard and
laid the blame on a series of administrations.
I was looked at as if I were the one threatening the peace of the US.

A presernt neighbor, the former wife of the local anti-terriorst
expert, said that they had the same experiences. No one wants the
truth!

If anyone is worried about something that is less likely that a slip in
a shower, they need to be educated. If they are as prepared for
terrorism as well as they are for home fires and earthquakes, that is
reasonable, even though the later two are far more likely.

Be careful in the shower, Larry, and don't sweat the small stuff.

For me to believe the US government's scaremongering, they first need to
act like they believe it and secure the borders. But what are they doing?
They subcontract port security to China's Howard Huges and they leave the

The federal government is all about taking away our liberty in the name of
security because of the war on terror with one hand but the other hand is
out there acting like there is no problem what so ever. Open southern
border, sub-contracted port security to dubai ports world (yes, that went
through after the media storm died down) and hutchenson-lampoa, and other
blatant idiotcy if this war on terror was real. Like the war on drugs,
it's a war on the people.

I'll take the risk of terrorism seriously when the government acts to
protect itself from foreign born terrorism instead of using foreign born
terrorism as an excuse to secure itself against US citizens rising up

Just because the government doesn't have the political will to fight a
problem doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist.

If the government doesn't close the southern border doesn't mean the
southern border isn't a threat. It means we need government officials
that ALSO don't have their head in the sand, who isn't in the political
business to get reelected, basing their votes in Congress on the polls.

Of course it will. But as usual, we'll find out later that US law

informants or assets even being involved up to the point of pushing the

gigantic hoax just like in the 50s-80s when america was told COMMUMISM
was public enemy number 1 even though the commies never did a thing to
us. The gover-media just invents these bogeymen to justify their wars
whether in korea or vietnam or iraq or afghanistan.

They are a far far bigger threat to you than terrorists. Why are
americans so stupid.?
The war IS on, that's why most states have a 0.08 limit, which, as we
all know, is ridiculous, since most of the people that do the killing
are WAY above that in the first place.

Don't gimme that crap about how driving with a BAC of .08 is ok.
That's like saying stealing should be legal as long as it's under
$300!!! There should be NO legal minimum on BAC, though of course the
penalties should vary with the alcohol concentration. Someone with a
BAC of .01 should pay say $100 fine while .20 would get you a month in
jail and a 5 year license suspension.

You do realize that you can blow a .01 after eating slightly old bread, yes?

Heck, anyone using OTC cold remedies, especially liquid types, could
easily blow .02+. I knew a guy who was diabetic, he'd never be able to
blow below .04.

I don't doubt that and people should not be driving when they're doped
up on cold meds. And if your diabetic friend is permanently drunk as
you say, then he shouldn't be driving period. Stop coddling these
killers.

Where do you think you would find the greatest variation in driving
ability?
Between the worst driver holding a clean licence and the best
or
between that best driver at a .00 reading and a .10 reading?

(I expect that you're familiar with the experiments along this line.)

I'm sorry for any booze related occurance that has effected your
outlook, but we must aim to rid the roads of the bad drivers, be they
intentionally that way by lack or skill or care or having consumed too
many drinks.

(If we were only trying to stop accidents we could not allow anyone
born in the first quarter of any year from driving.)

SO let me get this straight: Are you saying that we should coddle
certain DUI's based on the results of a breathalyzer test which is not
always 100% accurate?

I wonder if the quote in the .sig has anything to do with your
position...

If anyone needs a war declared on them, it is you, criminal coddler.

Two rednecks, Bubba and Earl, were driving down the road drinking a couple
of bottles of Bud.

The passenger, Bubba, said, "Lookey thar up ahead, Earl, it's a po-lice
roadblock! We're gonna get busted fer drinkin' these here beers!!"

"Don't worry, Bubba," Earl said. "We'll just pull over and finish drinkin'
these beers, peel off the label and stick it on our foreheads, and throw the
bottles under the seat."

"What fer?" asked Bubba.

"Just let me do the talkin', OK?" said Earl.

Well, they finished their beers, threw the empty bottles under the seat, and
each put a label on their forehead.

When they reached the roadblock, the sheriff said, "You boys been drinkin'?"
....

"No sir," Earl said. "We're on the patch."

A drunk is weaving down the road when a policeman stops him.

The policeman says, "Did you know that a few miles ago your wife fell out of
the car?"

The drunk says, "That's great news. For a minute, I thought I'd gone deaf."

One night a police officer was staking out a particularly rowdy bar for
possible DUI violations. At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the
bar, trip on the curb and try his keys on five different cars before he
found his. The man sat in the front seat fumbling around with his keys for
several minutes.

Meanwhile, all the other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he
started his engine and began to pull away. The police officer was waiting
for him. As soon as he pulled onto the street, the officer stopped him, read
him his rights and administered the breathalyzer test to determine his
blood-alcohol content.

The results showed a reading of 0.0.

The puzzled officer demanded to know how that could be. The driver replied,
"Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

Laura, American's are NOT stupid. Drunk drivers are nailed at
checkpoints and if people are seen driving erratically, they're pulled
over and tested for driving under the influence.

What more do you want?

Where the hell did you get that idea?? We need to encourage slow
driving. Americans are idiot sheep who've been brainwashed into
thinking fast driving is cool. The oil industry and and the auto
industry are behind the brainwashing cause they make a fortune off fast
drivers.
