A Texas freshman Democrat who cosponsored the State's nanny-state texting while driving ban was arrested for DWI the very day Gov. Abbott signed her bill into law. Is there a better example of irony that you can think of?

Alanis Morset's song "Ironic" lyrics actually are not ironic, they're just shitty situations. Now that's ironic.

This one's pretty ironic. Talk about Stockholm Syndrome. A Stockholm clinic for rape victims has begin to refuse rape victims in favor of mentally distraught migrants. Just can't make this stuff up. Kurt Vonnegut couldn't pen a more exasperatingly, ironic story.

As usual, InfoWars gets almost all of the facts wrong

Was she texting while driving? No? So I guess she followed the law she wrote. Although she broke another one. Yep - ironic.

That would be a bit more ironic....

I think the one that beats it out is the working class trump voters finding out their lives are in danger because of trump.

No, but I support the law in theory. But I don't like how the police harass the working class, supposedly being justified because of these laws.

Then don't support laws that punish victimless actions.

Well if we had a dictatorship of the proletariat rather than one of the bourgeoisie, then these laws wouldn't needlessly cause harassment to the working class because the state would be their ally, rather than their enemy.

Every time you write a comment, I roll my eyes so hard it hurts.... I'm worried they're going to get stuck...

I'd probably lean toward a nay vote on a texting-and-driving ban, but it's not a victimless action. You're endangering other people in doing so.

"Endangering" is completely subjective and nonsensical. If no harm is done, there is no victim.

Fair enough, but texting and driving certainly increases the probability of a crash occurring. By the "it's OK if nobody gets hurt" logic, speed limits are also immoral (you can drive fast, just don't run into anyone) and really most traffic laws are unreasonable (run all the red lights you want so long as you don't crash anyone). Not to mention, most workplace safety standards are immoral by this logic (have doors open the wrong way if you want, just don't have a fire). I personally think banning texting and driving would be a little drastic and likely difficult to enforce, but more generally, I think it's not unreasonable for governments to address actions, practices, etc. that pose potential hazards, even if these actions don't always translate to accidents.

Speed limits are absolutely immoral, aside from the glaring ignorance and utter stupidly of the concept.

How about rain on your wedding day? Or a free ride when you've already paid? Some good advice that you just can't take?
