    Right?
    I don't like helmet laws, Colorado doesn't have one. Are they commie for having those laws? No, I just like to call them that. But I hate helmet laws.

    As far as motorcycles go I would even be in favor of forcing those with a motorcyclists license to undergo safety training as a prereq for becoming licensed.

    I'm just going to let that one sit out there by itself.

    And higher education is an investment in one's self. It shouldn't need to be totally supported by tax dollars.
    Okay, not totally.

    Not necessarily, but it was a counter to your claim that government does these things. It doesn't.
    No, it does, but in some places it does it poorly.

    May not be a terrible use of tax payer dollars to bulldoze under sections of our large cities which no longer function. Maybe not. But as it stands, government does not really take care of this. It's left to the individual property owners; and likely that is the proper place.
    So you would buy a property in a place with no building codes whatsoever?

    Sorry, just had to repeat that one.

    I think that's already required in many states. Of course, just earning a license is a prerequisite to riding (and driving). Communism!

    But no, I don't necessarily want fewer motorcycle riders. But if one doesn't want to wear a helmet, I'm not inclined to force them to.

    On some part, though you can operate a motorcycle without an endorsement. I know a lot of riders who don't have a motorcycle endorsement; it's not uncommon.
