    Speed limits are not an imposition on free will. People can still go as fast as they want - but there are consequences for endangering others.

    There is a lot of stuff like that. The whole "yelling fire in a crowded theater" thing. Rights are not absolute.

    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    When a speed limit is imposed on people that is patently ridiculous, people tend to ignore it and rebel. The obvious example of that is the Carter imposed 55 mph national speed limit. It became a national joke and was not just disobeyed, but disobedience was flaunted in film, music, and everything else. There was no "endangering others" unnecessarily here, because the speed limit was artificially far below what driver's and the road could handle.

    This extends to today's mask mandates. Masks are worthless outdoors where people are alone or not near others. Yet, you have many like Biden and Newsome who are calling for universal mandates to wear one virtually all the time.

    Maybe he does. But who gives a crap if these idiots expose themselves? It's their spreading it to others who are more responsible that is infuriating. And these folks who can't bring themselves to worship in private should be turned away when they show up in emergency rooms gasping for breath. That system needs to be put in place!

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    True. When they all turn out to sing man-made songs, and read from a man-written bible in a man-built church we'll find out soon afterwards.

    The first wave was the global flood. The second wave is the coronavirus wave. So apparently God wants something.

    And I edited to add this...
