Bike Helmets.....YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING!!!
So...I heard the funniest thing on the radio today. It seems that our elected politicians have passed legislation mandating that our kids wear bike helmets.
Not only have they found time to pass a RIDICULOUS LAW , apparently the Columbus Fire Department is going to be GIVING AWAY FREE BIKE HELMETS!!!!WOO FREAKIN HOOO!!!
Last time I checked.... Columbus has a special election issue on the ballet this quarter asking for an income tax increase so that they can pay the Firefighters AND Police Officers! So answer me this..... Why are we giving away bike helmets all the while wasting time AND taxpayer money on frivolous legislation, when we can't even seem to pay our own Civil Service Workers? Not only that, but there are PLENTY of people who work in Columbus, but do not live in Franklin County.
Seeing how they don't live there, they don't even have the opportunity to vote on the matter! I guess the little man doesn't have a voice anymore. Even if they contribute to the local economy. Who cares right?
Doesn't anyone that we elect have any common sense about them? Or is it all about them? I can't help but feel that,sadly enough, it is the latter. They all need to be fired.
Any comments are welcome. I'm always looking for a different point of view.
