Motorcycles Must Be Outlawed

27 May

Reported today, NHTSA has embarked on its latest tyranny of requiring the installation of monitoring devices in all new automobiles – your unelected regulatory oppressors at work.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expected to issue new regulations next month, that will require a black box style data recorder be fitted in all new cars.

Similar in concept to the familiar black boxes used in commercial aircraft for decades, the boxes are expected to record information about speed, seat belt use and brake application in the final seconds leading up to an accident, the data can be retrieved for later analysis. – Dvice.com

Now, compliments of Nanny State bureaucracy, Big Brother will be able to retrieve a log of your seat-belt usage for reporting to “the State”, and you can be ticketed ‘after-the-fact’.

The irony?

I can step out of my Ford F150, mount a Harley Davidson or Ninja Motorcycle, head down the same side-road or Interstate as I can in the Ford F150… …with only a helmet between my body (moving at 75 mph) and the pavement.  More irony? In states like Illinois, I can go sans helmet.

Well! This can’t stand.  The do-gooders must intervene and protect me from my own self-destructive behavior.  Motorcycles must be outlawed!

And, damn-it, there are so may ways that humans can injure themselves, we must outlaw them all:

  • Parachuting
  • Jogging
  • Bull-Riding
  • Bacon-Covered Hotdogs
  • Skiing
  • Cigars
  • Incandescent Lighting
  • Cooking

But, since it’s already illegal to operate a human conveyance device without a seat-belt, outlawing motorcycles is certainly the low-hanging fruit.

Thank you to the automotive and insurance lobby for your assistance on this assault on our 4th Amendment Rights and our freedoms.

      This was just irony and hyperbole. To my knowledge there’s no actual bill to outlaw motorcycles… yet.

    You mentioned jogging in the dangerous list, but that’s wrong. With the obesity epidemic exercise will surely be mandated before long, and jogging will be one of the few activities you not only CAN do, but MUST do.

    (yes that is hyperbole…..but these days hyperbole has a habit of becoming reality with frightening regularity)

    Is America getting close to being a Police State?

    Everyday, the American People are being attacked by all sides limiting our freedom. There are many things on the horizon that our Government wants to impose on the People in order to CONTROL THEM.

    The Smart Grid will be used to CONTROL your thermostat and appliances. Obamacare will CONTROL your lifestyle, what you do and what you eat. Starting in 2011, all new cars (eventually all cars) will be mandated to have in them the “black box” to CONTROL your freedom of movement. It will show where you go, your speed, whether you are wearing your seatbelt etc.

    Some people may have heard about the FEMA Camps meant to round up the People around the country. Officials call the controversy about them “Conspiracy Theories;” something that will never happen. Nevertheless, it did. The United States had internment camps in the past.

    Today, Senator John McCain, along with several other Senators is sponsoring The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, or S. 3081. The bill authorizes the President to deny a detainee a trial by jury simply by designating that person an “enemy belligerent.”

    Who would be considered an enemy belligerent? Could an enemy belligerent be a Tea Party Protester? Possibly, because in April 2010 the Government did a security exercise at Fort Knox and sent out the following message regarding it: “Friday, 23 April 2010, and identifies the terrorist threat adversaries as “Local Militia Groups / Anti-Government Protesters / TEA Party.”

    Democrat Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey sponsored Senate Bill 34 Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2011. It gives the Attorney General, currently the biased Eric Holder the authority to deny the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to individuals whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities. Who in Eric Holder’s mind may these people be? Could it be Tea Party Patriots?

    In the 2008 Presidential election the Obama Regime set up “Truth Squads,” made up of people in POWER, like prosecutors and sheriffs to intimidate people from using their First Amendment right of Free Speech to criticize the candidacy of Barack Hussein Obama. During that election cycle the police were also given a directive to take caution when stopping vehicles displaying the Gadsden Flag, Tea Party stickers, or Ron Paul stickers. Now in 2011, the Obama Regime has a “Truth Czar,” who calls himself the terminator. His job will be to scour the internet and the Media looking for people criticizing Obama. When he finds them will they be considered “enemy belligerents?”

    More and more everyday American citizens are loosing their freedoms and most of them do not even know it. Wake up America!
