    Ok Tan you are making me get on my soap box again...

    I don't believe in government controlling my life. Take for instance the lovely state of Illinois. The corrupt piece of **** Governor Blagoavich is putting a ban on smoking in ALL public places. So this means that you can only smoke in your car and at home.

    Do the bars have any say in this? No. These business owners have taken a big risk in starting a small business and should be able to run it the way they want to.

    I don't need big brother telling me how to run my life. If I did I would move to China.

    (damn democrats... hehe... I had to get that in there for Tan )

    When I had my sidekick I never had to look at my phone while I was texting because I knew where all the letters were. With suretype its different and sometimes I find myself having to look down....I never do that in heavy traffic though, but I do admit its distracting.

    Big Brother...nice name drop...good book.

    That law has also passed in Washington, doesn't mean anything on the Tribal Lands though. I can still go to the Casino and smoke.

    I think I need to move...

    Sorry, I am a live and let live Libertarian. The government has no business telling anyone what they can do in their car, their home, their restaurant, their place of business, blah, blah, blah ad nauseaum infinitum.

    Legalize drugs, legalize gambling, legalize the whole thing. Stupidity knows no laws anyway.

    You know I never did understand why I'm not allowed to snort a line off an open bottle of tequila, doing 105mph down the wrong way of 275S while smoking a big ole blunt. I mean seriously, they're really hampering on my freedom to do whatever I want in my own vehicle!!!!
