I voted yes but feel that it really wont make a difference. I am guilty of texting and driving. Have been trying to cut down to only Red light texting.. its a 12 step process.
Yes they should ban texting while driving
No they should not ban texting while driving
I don't care because I'm too busy texting while driving to care
People who do that will take care of themselves in the long run.Originally Posted by TanBucsFan
LMAO!!! Figures the bush lover would pick that. jk
I dont love bush. I just dont like the left wing radicals who dont believe in the pledge of allegiance, the nativity scene and the boy scouts.
Think of it. Was the world a better place 30 years ago when all these things werent banned?
Depends -- How long do you have to be looking down at your cell-phone before some idiot pulls out in front of you?
um.. none of these are banned.Originally Posted by cubfan1247
The Pledge didn't have 'under god' for the first 62 years of it's existence. It was the Christian Knights of Columbus who shoe-horned that phrase in - kind of hard not to see it was 'religious'.
Nativity scenes are perfectly appropriate at any church of your choice. It doens't need to be subsidized by my city.
And the Boy Scouts have always been a private organization, free to exclude any group they choose. Thye just can't get the Government's help to do it.
Poll isn't showing up for me... oh well.
I don't really have an opinion on it, I suppose. I mean, everyone does it. I just try to be careful when typing while driving.
i'mma red light texter, most of the time
was easier on the pearl, one handed...the curve is a little too wide for me to be able to reach my thumb all the way across...
i tend to lean towards the more rebelious *you can't tell me what i can and cannot do* but i can certainly understand...
i mean, i had never worn a helmet while riding my bike until i got my kids a bike...why is that a law? did more kids die when i was a kid from bicycle accidents? i know, i know...we didn't even wear seatbelts back then
sorry, hi-jack over...

If mainstream media reports are to be believed, the Pledge of Allegiance, which most of us have no occasion to recite once we graduate from high school, has fallen victim to a steady stream of attacks. A nation-wide backlash erupted last week when it was reported that Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa voted to ban the pledge. This happened just a few years after the U.S. Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals ruled in 2002 that the Pledge of Allegiance as led in public schoolrooms violated the First Amendment, creating a clear pattern of nearly constant attack which the pledge has only barely managed to withstand.Originally Posted by twieder
This is just one example of where it was BANNED. (by the most left wing radical court in the country).
And the world is usually better off when nature is allowed to take its course. Legislating against stupidity makes us feel better in the short run, but it has a detrimental effect on the gene pool in the long run.Originally Posted by TanBucsFan
Every pool needs cleaning and maintenance to remain healthy. We're legislating a lot of pee into ours.

The student government of a community college decided that the pledge was "irrelevant to the business of student government."Originally Posted by cubfan1247
The 9th circuit rules that the enforced recitation of 'Under God' violated not free speech, but separation of church and state. Without that phrase, there would've been no case.
