Proposed Nationwide Cell Phone Ban

Reuters -- in an effort to combat distracted driving, US transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is calling for a federal law that would ban ALL CELL PHONE USE WHILE DRIVING ANY TYPE OF A VEHICLE ON ANY ROAD IN THE COUNTRY."

LaHood calling this a "national epidemic" at a summit in San Antonio Texas commenting that we need tough federal legislation to deal with this problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 3000 fatal traffic accidents nationwide last year were the result of distracted driving and that using a cell phone while driving reduces the reaction time to the same amount of having a blood-alcohol concentration of .08%.

just like the recent proposed farm bill which would put strict limits on the family farm by increasing the child labor laws to the point that even using any type of power device such as a screwdriver could be illegal and the child would have to attend 90 hours of government training was quickly put on hold due to the public outcry within DAYS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT is what we need to do in this particular case.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) calls on a ban for all PERSONAL ELECTRONIC DEVICES (PED)while driving. This would include ANY use of a cell phone, GPS, I Pad, or any other electronic device that was not installed at the factory.


more and more people are finding out that we actually have a voice and can make a difference just like with the proposed farm bill, we need to let the government know that we're not going to tolerate any more interference and you're not taking our phones away from us.

admittedly, 3000 traffic fatalities is 3000 too many however when you look at the big picture, compared percentage wise to the millions of vehicles that are on the road today, that's not even 1% that were trying to change the rules for.

don't let the government take away any more of our freedoms and rights. Express your voices now!

Remember, as Bill Engvall is known to say, "you can't fix stupid!" well you can't fix stupid either through legislation either.

Also I wanted to point out that while reading comments on the DOT's [moderated] website, there are supporters of this bill thinking that it is a good idea because of what they've seen on the road. DON'T BE BLINDED BY THE PROPAGANDA AND LOOK AT YOURSELF AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL SITUATION.

By that I mean, yes there are people out there that can't walk and chew gum at the same time. There are people out there who walk across the street without looking to see if traffic is coming. There is been people who have been killed by trains while texting and listening to music at the same time [seriously].

So the next time that you're thinking that, "yes... we need to pass this type of bill" stop for a minute and think how such a bill would actually impact YOUR life by having THOSE RESTRICTIONS PUT ON YOU!

Zimmerman is condemned even if he is found innocent

Robin's commentary --

I think that everybody is aware of the Martin/Zimmerman case without having to recap here what happened and I hope that everybody agrees that one of the most important facts that we have is that we don't know exactly what happened.

And that's one of the reasons why we have a legal system and courts to weigh the facts and evidence.

In theory, our legal system is supposed to assume that somebody is innocent until proven guilty however there's been a huge dust storm which was stirred up by Obama by irresponsibly commenting on a local case which in a sense he threw out the racism bone and these idiots blindly ate it up and now they're out for blood.

"It's a disgrace that man [Zimmerman] hasn't been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. Forget about him being arrested—the fact that he hasn't been shot yet is a disgrace. That's how I feel personally about it."-- Mike Tyson

Is this the type of America that we have resorted to?

Where are courts have been replaced by Jesse Jackson, Reverend Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Mike Tyson and the new Black Panther party.

Sadly, the list of Judge, juries and executioners seems to be growing. so even if Zimmerman wins the case in a court of law, he still loses.

do you think Obama's attitude is going a little bit too far?

I thought I would try something new... put out a topic for discussion and see if we can get a good debate going in the comment section.

Please feel free to add your comments and your opinion about this idea.

Obama's remarks to the Supreme Court recently had seemed to be rather harsh and threatening...

"I'm confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." -- president Obama

Federal Judge Jerry Smith, a Republican employee decided to do a little "showboating" by demanding a letter from US Attorney General Eric Holder of at least three pages singlespaced explaining his views on whether federal judges have the authority to strike down federal laws.

Question: do you agree with the media that it seems like the president is threatening the Supreme Court and/or the Supreme Court treating representatives of the Obama administration like children misbehaving in school.

Your opinion...
