Only in America!

Only in the Nannyized, overbearing, micro-managed USSA, where politicians, elitists, lobbyists, and citizen tyrants desire to crack the whip from the bully pulpit, would there be a Distracted Driving Summit. An entire summit, consisting of “senior transportation officials, elected officials, safety advocates, law enforcement representatives and academics.” Only in this statist, Safety-Nazi land of the unfree would we need to bring in academics to chime in on the complex, highbrow topic of texting while driving. Department of Transportation head Ray LaHood has said he “would prefer to ban texting while driving right away, but that the nation’s experience with seat belt laws shows a broad approach involving education and proper penalties needs to be part of the mix.” Oh my - proper penalties!

You can even go to Twitter to get updates on the summit. How much do you want to bet that Verizon was bullied (with threats to take away corporate state goodies) into supporting this ban?

    Wonder how much this one will cost us to “host?”
    Monetarily and freedom-wise.

    Ray LaHood, a perfect example of a useless Republican “Mushy Moderate”. He can be counted on for nothing. …he’s been on the public dole, living lavishly almost as long as Robert C. Byrd. LaHood is the model for what a bureaucrat should act like. …loves the power and the perks.
