Fast cars and no seat belts

posted by Brad Stine

Americans know what they want when it comes to cars. We love convertibles for example because it’s the open air. It’s part of our heritage. Americans love to travel, and we are the experts. We travel everywhere we go, otherwise, we wouldn’t get anywhere. We are the lineage of a people that were willing to die for an idea. You had to be a special breed of human to start America. People came in boats in the 16th century. Boats!

They traveled months through heavy seas and if you don’t think that was courageous, they brought their kids! Kids on a 6-month journey! I can’t travel 4 blocks with my kids and their whining w/o wanting to hit myself in the head with a hammer! Not the sea traveling kids, they didn’t complain. They threw up a lot, but they didn’t complain. Then the Eastern seaboard was created but that wasn’t enough for these visionaries. They traveled west to create this free Republic and got in covered wagons and went months and months through rugged terrain and the kids didn’t have ipods, or Iphones, or texting or snap chat or radios or rabies shots and the kids weren’t whining,” Are we there yet?” you know why? Because there WAS NO “THERE” YET! We are going to make a there.

Thus was born the greatest country the world has ever known. Was it hard? Yes, because we knew that hard was good. When a place is hard to get too, you appreciate it when you arrive. It’s also where we taught our lineage how to travel in the vehicles they trusted and liked.

Ford, that great American company made it affordable and practical to travel, they gave the people what they wanted. Now were trapped by government regulations on emissions, and environmentalist terrorism if you prefer a big, safe, SUV.

You want to teach kids to appreciate car travel? Here is an easy experiment. Make it dangerous to travel again! First thing we could do is get these airbags out of the cars. When I was growing up we had dashboards made out of metal. You got in a wreck, you paid for it! You were weeded out so the good drivers had more room. Now the people have bags for everything. It’s like a funhouse to get in a wreck in this country.

Kids nowadays look confused because they’ve never been in a bagless car. They thought cars always had bags, they thought the model T had bags. They weren’t as sophisticated just a pygmy with a paper sack. (Picture blowing up sack and holding it out). Kids don’t understand innovation. They have had bags and a mandatory seat belt. When I was growing up we set in the front seat, no bags, no belt, and you know what protected me? Mom’s arm. How many crash dummy tests did it take to realize this ain’t working?

Kids nowadays have been given bags, seatbelts and spent the first 6 years in the back seat in a 5 point harness car seat and they probably learned to ride a bike wearing a helmet the BIG BABIES. If I wore a helmet riding my bike my friends would have beaten me up! We are the lineage of a group of people that broke from the most powerful country of the 19th century to become the most powerful country in the 20th.

We have gone from a group of people that were taught if you work hard enough, get innovative and don’t complain you can be anything you want, TOO a group of people that now need signs warning them that coffee is hot! If you didn’t know coffee was hot..PUT A HELMET ON!!

We are Americans and know what we like. Car dealers represent us, not environmentalists and progressive ideologues. We like convertibles, fast cars, and the dealers know it! Let the people decide! Not only is it common sense, you might actually make a profit!

What is marriage for?
Hi my friends. With the Holidays once again upon us I think of the gratefulness I have for my wife who has walked with and put up with me for 22 years. That being said I stumbled upon this blog I wrote in Aug of 2009 which is 5 years ago. ( or 12 years ago if you believe in common core math) I

Isn't dead stuff beautiful?
Well fall is finally here and that always brings with it those beautiful colors and symbols that we all cherish and hang on to as a nation. Of course I am referring to blood, corpses and fear. Halloween is right around the corner, I know that because the moment you walk around the corner someone or

Men at work, Women at whine
Did I ever tell you the story about the city of Atlanta taking down the “Men at work” signs from road construction over a complaint by the editor of a feminist magazine that it was discriminatory by not including women? Is nothing too paranoid for the PC-eople? So THAT’S how men have been do

No cell "signal".
I have complained about the lack of turn signals being used in America in one of my DVD's awhile back. (Which one I'm unsure of as believe it or not I forget half the stuff I do on an old album cause I'm always working on a new one.) I was really flabbergasted though as people even began stopping

The 4th of July is pure GUY!!
Americans love to celebrate stuff. Heck that’s why we have holidays every month of the year; we need an excuse to celebrate. The celebration is the experience by the way, rarely are we actually celebrating what the holiday is for. You don’t believe me? We have a holiday called Arbor Day that
