Default New Helmet Law??? More Government???



Advertise Here

A Senator in Massachusetts (D), is trying to get a new helmet law passed (Snow Sledding Helmet Law). Do they think we need to wear helmets all the time. Am I going to have to wear a helmet to go jogging next, or how about if I am out hunting. Where does this GOOBERment stop??? This is rediculous

How did all of us survive before the GOOBERment came along. How did I make it through childhood without all these helmet laws, and child seat laws, and seat belts. These are unconstitutional laws, that invade our private lives. Good by "Good Ole Days". Here we are, knee deep in financial crisis, and this is the kind of crap the politicians are bringing to the table???

Any doubt that government, at ALL levels, in this country needs an overhaul?
It's up to us, people. How much, and for how much longer, will we allow this?
It's in no one's hands but ours. Talk is not cheap... it's worth NOTHING.
What are we passing along to future generations? We should be so so ashamed for ****ing our heritage away in a generation.
I sure am. Helmets...just another incremental citizen-f*cking. It's so much bigger than helmets, isn't it. I literally get sick to my stomach.

I was thinking that I could line my helmet with tin foil.

23,00 sledding accidents a year, they say? Either they are only counting fatal accidents or they WAY underestimate that number. I can specifically recall that when I was a kid, I was in 23,000 sledding accidents in ONE year. And guess what, I didn't wear a single helmet. Not even once. I suppose that is why I turned out to be so defective in the brain area. The worst thing is that the retarded parents are going along with it because fi they do not let the nanny state get its way, then they will be branded bad parents. I wonder what the fine is for NOT wearing a helmet while sledding.

Those legislators should be the ones wearing helmets.

Ouch that was a mentally handicapped joke of questionable taste and I may edit that out later because the mentally handicapped do not deserve the shame of being lumped together with lawmakers. They never did anything to me.

Maybe the helmet thing is a no brainer, they could be going after alcohol you know the total cost of alcohol problems is $175.9 billion but who know...

WTF?

No wonder the younger generations are a bunch of ******* and whiners. Cradled from birth to adulthood. A kid needs to fall down and crack that head a few times. Learns not to do something stupid the next time.

Walked into a Kroger the other day and say a trendy soccer mom pushing a cart of groceries topped with a toddler with some kind of form fitting helmet on. I asked myself, is that useful? I mean is its purpose to protect the kid's brain or to keep it from growing any larger?

I started to laugh out right. In GA helmets are required on motocycles and ATV's. I can imagine watersking with a helmet. How about helmets driving the bulldozer? That may be a bad example. I see those funny videos on TV with the snowboarders and sledders crashing. Take the fun out of it why not.

I saw something similar Dwind. A kid riding in a grocery cart with a helmet on. Give me a break!!!! Parents today are so lame. Our parents knew we had to get a few knocks and scrapes. We cried, mom kissed the boo-boo and we learned to not do it again. Hey, sometimes we got an a** whoopin' because we were acting stupid when we got hurt. People learn from pain. That's a sad fact but it's a fact just the same. Think back to the biggest lessons of your life. I bet most if not all happened when you got hurt, had your heart broken, learned what NO meant or wanted something really bad you didn't get. I'm not saying trying to be safety minded is a bad thing - only don't take it to far and try to legislate everything to death. I have 3 sons. 2 I told as toddlers don't touch the stove and they learned with just a warning about heat. The 3rd had to get burned but all it took was one time. Let me tell you, that boy has made me earn every gray hair I have! I clicked on this thread because I thought it was about motorcycles - no helmets required in SC. To find out it's about sledding just makes me want to laugh. What's next? Decking your kid out in shin, knee and elbow pads and a helmet to cut the grass? Oh, no. That means work and delicate children should be protected from all danger, including breaking out in a sweat! Give me a break.

I'm not really knocking parents trying to protect their kids, my earlier post aside. But seriously- there is only so much you can conceivably do without trapping the poor noseminer in armored plate

Soon they will cut down all the trees because kids are falling out of them and getting hurt.
