Hulk-out politics!

Sometimes I want to rage at politicians who waste elected time coming up with the most absurd laws!! Here's a great example of how out-of-touch they can be with reality.

A New Jersey assemblyman, Jon Bramnick, is sponsoring a bill that would make it illegal to talk on a cell phone while riding a bicycle. Why you ask? "``That is, in our judgment, a danger to pedestrians as well as to the bicyclists themselves, due to the fact that now they have one hand on the handlebars, they're talking to someone and they're on a public highway,'' said Bramnick, a Union County Republican."

Are you freaking kidding me?! What about driving a car over 70 mile-per-hour while talking on the phone and smoking a cigarette?!?!?! I see THAT every single day during my 20 minute commute to and from work!! So it's better and safer to drive HALF-HANDED (due to the holding of a light cigarette) 3-4 times faster?!?!

I gotta think that some of this crap comes up in legislation so that some no-name politician can just get their name out there. How self serving of you who are elected by the general public on the disillusioned thought that you are there to server THEM!!
