quote: It will be available as an option by manufacturers, and I think it’s a real way forward.
quote: We started two wars and killed thousands of innocent people over terrorism.
quote: Sounds to me like Mr "drunk drivers killed more people than terrorists" is the kind of person that needs crap like this in their car since he as all but confessed to doing it.
quote: Really! I mean is this the point where even the most apathetic person might think "okay that's going too far."? I really hope so. To make something like this mandatory standard equipment in all vehicles...it's just so overboard it hurts my brain. I would totally be okay with forcing this on people with a record of DUI's, they've broken the law. But in EVERY CAR!!??
quote: First, driving is a PRIVILEGE, not a right.
quote: EVERYONE and their mother right now feels it's just fine to drink "after a few".
quote: On a side note, it would have stopped the moron who drove over my aunt and uncle(and like 5 other people) at noon on a busy street when I was a kid
quote: I'm glad you enjoy sacrificing your rights one at a time.
quote: I'm not going to get my panties in a wad this early.
quote: You don't have a right to drive. It's a privilege. I don't agree with forcing these into cars but if they did decide to do that it would not be violating any of your rights.
quote: No other rights require a person to get a license to exercise them.
quote: Driving is not enumerated in the constitution, nor were any rights to existing methods of travel enumerated in the constitution when it was written.
quote: And yes, we do have a freedom to travel. But there is no method that is spelled out as an absolute right
quote: "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" for instance imply an awful lot, such as government provided healthcare...
quote: I love these trite arguments
quote: I lost a friend to a drug overdose. Does that mean the war on drugs should continue even though it's been an abject failure? Well if you think not, I guess you're "ignorant" too.
quote: The difference with your friend is that he did it to himself. It was his choice to take too many drugs and thus committed suicide.
quote: When a friend of yours dies due to a drunk driver you can talk to me again on this matter. As of now you're just incredibly ignorant.
quote: Hence the flaws of a strict reading of the US Constitution, and why Federalists hated the Bill of Rights: Because a strict reading, protecting ONLY the rights that are explicitly granted, results in a gradual loss of rights as a whole. Just look at what's happening to privacy rights now: Its not explicitly protected, so the courts are gradually rolling back your right to privacy.
