Suicide clown cars ... And what to do when the government says being forced into buying insurance isn’t enough, now we must be forced to buy a government motors suicide clown cars.
Once you cross the threshold, the sky’s the limit. Got to get your grazing ‘green food’ from the government.
I think people riding in these death traps are just plain stupid.
But not quite as much so as those who ride motorcycles. I have always approached life with the attitude that I am responsible to do as much as I can to assure my own safety and comfort, but that my time will come and when it does there's not much I can do about it. Sorta somewhere between realist and fatalist.
I have spent much of my working life dealing with news events, first as an EMT, then paramedic and physician's assistant, and more lately as a news photographer. I have always been amazed at how unpredictable injury in a motor vehicle accident can be. I've rolled up on scenes where there's very little property damage but someone is dead. And the other way around also. Heavy damage, overturned vehicle, etc. but everyone is up and walking around.
The one thing I've learned though is that, regardless of what you think follows this life, you had best be ready to meet it because you can be there in an instant. Can't tell you how many times treated or transported those who were alive one moment, and quite dead the next. No time for preparation or good-bye’s, just here one instant and facing eternity the next.
