    This one is pretty good too for any of you who were wondering where Ralph Reed’s redheaded campaign manager started….

    What a bunch of idiots. That stunt was nothing more than kids getting their jollies off of making people angry.

    I am going to decline to say anything that might be construed as opposing our Governor’s newest initiative – not the bass one, the other one.

    Come on, rugby. That wasn’t about people going the speed limit. It was about controlling other people and making them angry. There was not one positive outcome of the stunt, and it surely won’t cause anyone to convert to driving the speed limit.

    I do think speed limits are too restrictive on some interstates and state highways. In this day, when people are travelling at higher speeds in safer cars to meet busier schedules than in previous decades, 55mph is a little silly on an 8-lane divided highway.

    Then perhaps you should petition your state representative to ease the speeding restrictions or interstates. Otherwise, you really don’t have an argument–unless you have something against people obeying the law…

    jsm,

    Did you lose a rear view mirror over that stunt?

    Seriously, if you didn’t get the point of the excercise, which was made quite well, then you have bigger problems than the speed limit on Atlanta’s highways.

    “…people were being dangerous, because we were obeying the law.”

    People were being dangerous because they set up a coordinated roadblock under the guise of obeying the law. Were people right to drive dangerously because of the stunt? No. However, the stunt was not about “obeying the law.” The coordinated effort to control others–not the specific speed–produced the reaction they were looking for. Nobody cares if a person is obeying the speed limit as long as it does not unnecessarily impede that person’s progress.

    And no, Demon, I didn’t lose a mirror. *chuckle*

    They didn’t do anything wrong. They obeyed the law. They coordinated to obey the law. If a group of people deciding to get together and obey the law as a group causes an inconvenience to everyone else in the city…then maybe it’s the law that needs to be examined, not the kids who pointed out its fallacy.
