They recently made it a law here in Illinois that you are not allowed to use a cell phone while driving in a work zone. Good law and I can understand why we need this law, distracted drivers in a work zone are not good. So Illinois is admitting that talking on a cell while driving is distracting. I guess it's ok to drive distracted outside of a work zone eh?

Make it a law, no cell use while driving! Too many drivers have a hard enough time just driving, stick a cell to the sides of their heads and it's a disaster waiting to happen.

It should be made a law that any citizen can stop any car whose tinted windows hide the owner blaring obnoxious bass tones to music that can be heard more than 5 feet away from the car.  Once stopped, the driver must leave the car and walk home to his mother's house to explain why he was being a pest to 'normal' people.  While he, or her, walks home, said citizen can verbally, or physically, abuse the car to the same degree, or more, as the music disturbed everyone in a one block radius.  Weapons of mass destruction are not allowed to be used in this abuse, nor any firearm, unless it was taken from said driver who is now walking home.

Also, if the tinted windows of the offending vehicle must be broken to reveal the driver, do so thoroughly.  So be it.


Not that I have been thinking about this noise issue for some time...

It should be a law that prisons be made from the plastic packaging in which the last USB drive I purchased was entombed. 

No one would ever escape. 

Fortunately the fire department is down the street and had adequate resources to free the device.

It should be made a law that if you eat a donut in the breakroom, you have to eat the whole thing.

It should be a law that if you make a law that it should apply to you too.

It should be a law: Major League Baseball can't start till May 1st and must be completed September 1st, I don't care if they play triple headers everyday.

Also, Boxing should be winner take all, loser get cash only for approved expenses!!!

Driving under the speed limit in the left lane should be punishable by STUN GUN.

Any professional athlete that complains about salary and is making over $100,000 is kicked in the nuts and chained to a stamping press to perform hand transfers for the period of one month.

It should be a law that the president is elected BY THE PEOPLE....not the electorial vote...

Then the welfare cities would elect all future Presidents!

BTW-there is a process for getting that changed. Conservatives call it the Amendment process. Liberals call it the Supreme Court.

All laws must meet Constitutional muster...as the Constitution was WRITTEN, not interpreted.
That would eliminate most laws!

The 'World Series' must be renamed until Malaysia and Uganda's baseball teams meet for the title.  Call it the 'USA Series' until Toronto and Montreal get real teams.

Basketball playoffs are held in one game playoffs.  None of this best of 7 crap.

Hockey playoffs end when Snow melts in Quebec, not until July in Anaheim.

It should be made law that all drivers be issued dart guns with "idiot" darts that you could tag a car doing stupid things, and there should be dedicated police driving around and ticketing those who have more than 3 "idiot" darts on their cars thereby freeing up the police to not worry about the rest of us good drivers.

Silvera and Cholla, you are on the right path, but breathing should not be the only qualification for voting.   If an able bodied person is not productive enough to support themselves and pay taxes, they do not have any vested interest in the system.

 No vested interest=no vote! 

I am tired of 3rd and 4th generation wards of the state destroying what I have worked for and then having the attitude that they should have the right to dictate how I need to run my life.

Its like 'drug free zones' near schools, or 'hate crimes'.

I get what they're trying to do, but the inferences when the logic is carried to its conclusion are silly.

It should be a law that I can kick stupid deckhands in the ass for leaving their unwanted $hit out on the galley table. I'm so sick of having to throw empty boxes of TRIX cereal boxes and soda cans away for these snot nosed kids who are too lazy/stupid to pick up after themselves. Your Momma does not work here son!

It should be against the law to vote if an able body person takes welfare.

Sounds like the firehouse.

It should be a law:  If you leave 1 pickle slice and 1/2 gallon of juice in a 1 gallon jar setting in the refrigerator, the  contents of said jar shall be liberated in the violators bunk.
