Senseless Death In America
On December 14, 2012, for the 65,000th time in my life, I was proud to be an American. I listened intently to President Obama as he wept at the loss of life in Connecticut. I believe his emotions were sincere. I also believe that something needs to be done immediately, today, to prevent more of this same loss of life. Yes, automatic weapons need to be restricted to only those of this nation who are clearly sane, but automobiles need to be removed from the roads of this nation immediately. Automobiles in America kill nearly 100 persons each day. It is time to remove these "machines of mass destruction" from the roads of America now! It is apparent that the driving tests and drivers education is lacking in all the 50 states (or as President Obama would say, "58 states"). It is time for the Federal Government to do its duty to insure that nobody dies a senseless death at the hands of some mentally deficient driver, or as in the case of Toyota vehicles, cars that thinks for themselves and defy the physical input from its driver, and goes faster and faster the harder the brakes are pushed. It is time for our worthless Congress to see that automobiles are a relic of the past, and decree walking as the only safe means of transportation. I am sure the First Lady, Michelle Obama, can be a positive factor in moving this type of legislation forward. Once this issue of killer vehicles is handled, then it is time for more gun laws.
Can America tolerate 100 deaths a day by automobiles that sometimes think for themselves, and by drivers bent on destruction........who use these "machines of mass destruction" to kill 40,000 Americans, of all ages, each year? It should be further noted that in the U.S. each year 6,000 persons die from falls, 5,000 from poisoning, and 3,000 from fire and burns.
