I wrote last year about Ray LaHoods desire to “coerce Americans out of” their cars. His plan is to make driving as uncomfortable, inconvenient and expensive as possible.
So now he wants to prevent the use of cell phones in cars due to the “distraction” factor. He says the technology is out there to disable phones in cars. I keep asking myself, is this what the progressive left really want? Do all those college students who support the Obama agenda really want to give up their phones?
And where do distractions in cars end? How many parents will be leaving their kids at home because the “Mom! he’s looking at me again!” screeches from the backseat are a distraction? How about a bottle of water while you’re driving, not to mention a burger and fries? Or God forbid – a cigarette!!!I don’t want my family out on the highway without a cell phone. Hell, I don’t want to be out on the highway without mine.
Where does it end? At $10/gallon gas? Not only will that “coerce” us out of our cars but out of the grocery store and malls, too. Which in turn, means job loss to millions more.
A year ago LaHood was talking about chips in cars that would monitor gas consumption which would then be taxed as part of the carbon footprints BS, which in turn would be part of crap-n-tax that the EPA will be trying to enforce on us, all the while walking around congress.
Oh, what a tangled web they weave . . .Non-elected officials writing laws that will dramatically and fundamentally change our lives and our nation.
It’s all about protecting us right out of our jobs, our healthcare, all our civil liberties in what has become an obscene desire to control every aspect of our lives, by the ruling class. They know better than the rest of us how to spend our money and what’s best for our health and welfare. How many rights will be enough? When do we finally say enough?
2 years of this has been scary. Another term with this regime will mark the end of America as we’ve known and loved it.

Roxy, great post !
Here is a pertinent comment from Glenn Becks book ‘Common Sense’, a quote from James Madison. Chapter 4, page 49.
[Congress]…can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society. This has always been deemed one of the strongest bonds by which human policy can connect the rulers and the people together. It creates between them that communion of interests and sympathy of sentiments, of which few governments have furnished examples; but without which every government degenerates into tyranny….If this spirit shall ever be so far debased as to tolerate a law not obligatory on the legislature, as well as on the people, the people will be prepared to tolerate anything but liberty.
Even then, they knew.
They had witnessed it.

Thank you, Ron. Indeed if the laws don’t apply to the ruling class as equally as to me and thee, then they are null and void.
If they can have fabulous health care, then so should I.
If they can have a ridiculous retirement package, then so should I.
If she can fly in a military jet with her family, free of charge, across the country, then so can I.
If they can make errors in their income tax returns or fail to file at all and not suffer interest and penalties, then so can I.
These people are not smarter than you or I, they just have access to information that we do not.
These people are no more privileged than we are, they just get on television every other day.
Where is the outrage? Is it just the 10 or so of us out here who actually keep up on current events and see that the road we are on is going to lead off a cliff? When will other people wake the hell up???

We took a baby step this past election.
We will make our voice heard over the next two years.
Come 2012, “Cry Havoc! and Loose the Dogs of War.”
We are not finished yet.
God Bless America.
