But why just cell phones? Ifrepparttar real intent ofrepparttar 125890 law is to eliminate distractions from our roadways, why not ban them all? Summers could justifiably expandrepparttar 125891 proposal to include a ban on smoking inrepparttar 125892 car, adjustingrepparttar 125893 radio or inserting a Britney Spears CD, eating fast food, scoldingrepparttar 125894 rug rats inrepparttar 125895 backseat, talking with your spouse, shaving or applying makeup, doingrepparttar 125896 crossword puzzle, using a laptop computer, calling for on-screen directions to Starbucks, and rehearsing your excuse that explains your tardiness torepparttar 125897 boss.

Could we really ban Britney Spears CDs? I digress.

Beforerepparttar 125898 law is done with revisions, no common person will be able to read and understand it, and mainly, drivers will just continue to take their chances.

This begsrepparttar 125899 significant philosophical question: Why bother?

Isnít it sufficient that citations can already be issued ifrepparttar 125900 use of a cell phone isrepparttar 125901 cause of an accident? Why pile on? No harm, no foul: Ifrepparttar 125902 use of a cell phone isnít endangering anyone inrepparttar 125903 moment, why penalize forrepparttar 125904 harm that was not caused?

Ah,repparttar 125905 law is to be a deterrent, to eliminaterepparttar 125906 possibility of harm. But wonít it also become more than that? How much of a stretch is it to envision police pulling over drivers who endanger nobody on a deserted road at 11pm, but who are guilty of making a cell call, just sorepparttar 125907 officer can meet his monthly quota? Isnít that a harm all its own?

Say, ifrepparttar 125908 police pull a driver over torepparttar 125909 side ofrepparttar 125910 road, isnít thatrepparttar 125911 sort of distraction that could cause an accident? It should be banned!

Letís hope this Bill dies in committee. If it passes, Summers will run for re-election in 2006 onrepparttar 125912 basis of having produced this wonderful lawÖ and of having been suitably busy.

Then we can look atrepparttar Federal Government's refusal to fundrepparttar 125889 Investigative department ofrepparttar 125890 agency who reviews ongoing disability cases and determines if there is a heath improvement and removes claimants fromrepparttar 125891 payroll who otherwise may receive unmerited benefits for many years or life. Not to mentionrepparttar 125892 fact that ifrepparttar 125893 claimant is paid there is no review byrepparttar 125894 Appeals Council andrepparttar 125895 claimant is paid ongoing for life.

These are just a few ofrepparttar 125896 areas that can save tax payers a ton of money and getrepparttar 125897 money to where it is really needed. Setting aside two percent of my contributed six percent to a "Private Investment" may net me a few more dollars when I'm 67 years old but at what risk. Fixingrepparttar 125898 broken internal problems are much more likely to ensure that in 17 years there will be a retirement Social Security check.
