Do As I Say...?

Well, looky here. Seems one of our State Senators got involved in a car accident the other day. Looks like she should have been held at fault according to the story: "Migden,... said she was reaching for her ringing cell phone and took her eyes off the road.".

A few questions immediately come to mind:

Was she using a hands free device? I'm not that familiar with cell phones so don't know if she'd still need to handle the phone with a hands free device.

How did Ms. Midgen vote on the law that was passed a while back making it illegal to use a cell phone [without a hands free device] while driving?


Were state legislators exempted from that law?

I tried briefly to find the cell phone bill but couldn't find it. If anyone else has time, please let us know what you find out.

I don't know about exemptions, but I don't think the cellphone law goes into effect until January 2008.

You might be right. I thought it went in effect January 1, but I get my dates and times all messed up as a matter of course.

Politicians are naturally exempt from the laws they pass. The government and the politicians in the government are like our parents. They know what's best for us and they require our unconditional obedience lest we be rightfullly punished for disrespecting our masters. Fact of the matter is that if people could accept their place in life according to the wisdom of the politicians it would be a better world. Rather, the people have to be fooled like the stupid spoiled children we are by a "right to vote", the "constitution" and "bill of rights". The only thing we have a right to is the right to submit to our wise beneficent superiors in government.

Migden and I worked out at the same gym in SF when I lived there. Seemed nice enough, though I've heard stories to the contrary. Heard a story about her at a party in which she spoke to each person briefly, grooming them for whether they were capable of promoting her in any way, and moving on quickly and abruptly once she determined the individual could not. But the guy who told me this could also have misinterpreted. She may have stopped the conversation with him because he was boring. All about interpretation I suppose.
