    Sen. Kruger Wants To Ban Chatting On Cell Phones While Crossing StreetCBS New York

    NYC just can't get a grip on the big issues, so this is the kind of shit the politicians work on.

    When people are doing things that are detrimental to their own well being, then government should step in,” Kruger said.

    ^^^^ That about sums up what is wrong with America. Our Government is full of idiots who have no understanding of the Constitution.... but I have no doubt that the left will argue that this is covered under 'General Welfare'. Fucking idiot.

    Yep. We need to outlaw stupidity. And then maybe no one will ever die. Politicians are soooo noble.

    Maybe we should just cut to the chase and outlaw death. :lol:

    Everything we do is detrimental to our well being, even the stuff that is good for us.

    I can actually see this as a good thing, for example, if someone blunders into the street while doing this and a car hit them, as long as the car had right of way, the person hit would be technically performing a violation. Driver has a better case when the idiot hit sues them.

    You guys miss the brilliance of the 'law'...

    This will lead to enforcement, whereby there will be two walkers to accompany each citizen, one on each side...to look left and right, of course.

    And...that's the end of the unempoyment problem, as well!

    It's a win-win!

    Wait- didn't Swift write about this idea in Gulliver's Travels???

    Good health is actually the slowest possible rate of dying.
