    Some ideas touch on meritorious points but have no way of connecting to reality.

Unless the car itself does not let you drive before taking an test; however people find always ways to avoid doing so and bypass the system.
    That is why it should be mandated by the government. Pollution and mileage controls are hard to defeat. The majority of people aren't up to the responsibility of living.

    Trump got to be president against all odds. An examination of Trump's campaign spending supports that he did not lace a high priority on winning. So against all odds, common sense and objective reasoning Trump is now president. Under those circumstances most people would assume they were destined to be president and be president to carry out a mission. Trump appears to believe he has a mission from god and his actions so far indicate that mandate must be to carry out modern Crusades. He as much paraphrased that goal in the excerpts Schmidt printed from the prayer breakfast speech. I find it absolutely incredible.

    Smoking has to be higher on your list - its a killer for sure

    Read my thread about making cars avoid crashes. I oppose all for profit death, suffering and cheating.

    As long that here are no "self driving" cars on the road; it remains the human "error " factor which plays an role.

    One of the main factors creating accidents is indeed stupidity; like driving while texting, using the cell phone, being drunk or intoxciated by drugs. etc. As long they ( here in FL) refuse to introduce "hands free driving" like in Europe, then accidents are self inflicted wounds.

    Dutch, There are a lot of extra cost options for collision avoidance. The government could simply mandate that these life saving injury preventing features be on all cars. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars crashing cars. Why not spend some of that crash money to avoid crashes.

    First let me say that any type of gun legislation that makes sense that might have a chance of passing would have to come from Schmidt or somebody that thinks like him. I would support 100% anything he suggests.

    Having said that there is absolutely positively no reasonable gun legislation that will:

    1. Be presented by anybody in this forum that can be offered for voting.

    2. Effect gun violence.

    3. Not effect negatively the number of liberal progressive candidates or office holders.

    4. Stop the impending surge of crime and violence resulting from the war on opioids.

    5. Will not have a massive corresponding purchase of new guns.

    6. Will not further polarize and alienate responsible gun owners.

    7. Have any other purpose than people that believe nobody should have a gun imposing that will.

    8.........

    In over thirty years of trying to reduce gun violence there are now more guns than ever, more people than ever legally carrying guns, more states allowing more people to carry more guns more ways.

    Demonizing and calling gun owners gun nuts is for sure not the approach to passing gun laws.

    The way to peace is through prosperity. Pass laws that support jobs, industry and making things to sell and all violence will start to go down. Ranting and raving about gun violence sells more guns.

    I ride with friends that have the computer controlled safety features like automatic braking. They all have turned it off because it is too safe. Slows down when they wouldn't.

    Two Senators from Wyoming represent 586,675 people and have the same voting power as two Senators from California who represent 39,747,844 people. Plus every year the population of CA increases by about the same number as the entire population of Wyoming. Does that make sense???
