    Default the right to drive

    The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon in the ordinary course of life and business is a common right which he has under his right to enjoy life and liberty.... It includes the right in so doing to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day; and under existing modes of travel includes the right to drive a horse-drawn carriage or wagon thereon, or to operate an automobile thereon for the usual and ordinary purposes of life and business. It is not a mere privilege, like the privilege of moving a house in the street, operating a business stand in the street, or transporting persons or property for hire along the street, which the city may permit or prohibit at will.
    Thompson v. Smith, 154 S.E. 579, 1929
    so fuck off all of you 'no right to drive' assholes.
    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.

    My father's right to drive should be taken away from him, but I am a coward and won't do it.

    any volunteers?

    me? hell no. some guy asked me 'if I was a cop and had to arrest my mother, what would I do?'

    my answer was 'call for backup'.

    dated 1929?

    I now have a driver, too much meds for me to drive.
    Bush doubled the debt from 5 trillion to 10 trillion.
    Proving tax cuts work!

    Bush asked for and signed for the TARP money.
    The Republican senate leader backed Bush on this.

    Yes, I imagine you would.
    McCain to Obama. "If you don't like our bill, send troops to help us."

    Obama, himself attempted to filibuster Justice Alito, who now sits on the Supreme Court.

    I am still just as independent as a rich person who is driven around.
    Perhaps moreso, I don't have to worry about where to park the van or remembering where I parked it.

    Did you Shepardize the cite to insure that it is still good law? I don't have access Shepard's here at the house, but if S.E. Reporter is the only place this appears then the right is only particular to one State in the US. Nationwide, it's still a privilege.
