No Helmet Sundays!!
But Officer it’s Sunday, don’t you know the rule?
It’s Motorcycle Awareness day, we think that’s pretty cool
Every Sunday is our fun day, no helmet laws to enforce
Enacted by Stein, Where do we sign? He’s the one to endorse.
No visor blocking our vision, Stein for Congress, it’s clear
He’ll take on established government, fringed in leather gear.
It’s breakout season for rebel bikers who just want to be heard
Thunderous engines, rev that Chopper, shift that sucker into third
We’re carving up the roadways, unimpeded by public norms
Hallelujah, Glory Sunday, staying vertical for reforms
Tearin’ up rubber, poppin’ wheelies, puttin’ the suspend in suspension.
Rally ‘round a man of reason, shakin’ up the Jersey Shore
Stein’s fed-up and mad as hell, he’s not gonna take it any more.
Feel the pull below my body, the vibrations humming chorus
It’s time to kick into reverse and have the government working for us.
No excessive spending and personal greed - and LoBiondo’s got to go.
Spring’s around the corner boys, don’t let those Sundays get tied up
See ya when we roll unencumbered -
And always keep the shiny side up!

My personal opinion on the topic is that of the right to choose what is right for me. I have owned many motorcycles and love riding! I myself typically wear a helmet because I feel safer, but I totally oppose the helmet laws! It should be up to the individual on decisions of safety of ones self. The imposition of Helmet laws, seatbelt laws, and ... any other law that has nothing to do with anything but your own decision is a crock. Laws like this are there to pad the pockets of the municipalities that collect the fines. They have no other reason, no other backing. I lived in Florida for a short time, and I still rode with a helmet, but it was nice when tuning to take the quick shot down the road on occasion without looking over my shoulder....

Amazing, everyone I sent this to is commenting. I agree with you 100%, I'd probably still wear mine too, and then again maybe I wouldn't. Thanks.

I believe its my right to chose whats best for me. I think helmets should be optional everyday of the week. But, what holds this freedom back is not personal safety When its boiled down, law makers are not worried about deaths. They are worried about who's going to suffer the finacial loss in the result of an accidental death related to a rider not... wearing a helmet. This goes for most laws reguarding safety. Law makers have made this country soft. They've made it possible for people to NOT be responible for themselves. And it makes me sick. The cold hard truth is that life is dangerous and from the moment your wake up in the morning your life should be YOUR responibilty... Not somebody elses. My advice to American... Man-up, open your eyes, protect yourself, and stop crying. Life's a battle and lets face it. Only the strong will survive. If someone dies from not wearing a helmet.. It was there choice to take that risk and no lawsuit should be result from it.

Wayne's bikes. I don't know Wayne. Wayne was good enough to add me as a facebook friend when I sent the request. I'm going to ask Wayne and Brian for the ok to keep this up and maybe start a little ruckus in the STAID 2nd District, where "someone" doesn't know the meaning of "term limits"

2/26/2010 An imagined conversation with the New York Times. The folks who've never responded to numerous attempts to contact them regarding some very original immigration reform ideas!!
N.Y. Times: Mr. Stein, why would any responsible voter support your candidacy when this legislation is perceived a s frivolous, and is sure to result in unnecessary highway fatalities and/or injuries, not to mention an extra burden to a health care system on the verge of collapse?
Mr. Stein: This is really a ruse to get attention for my other agendas, although I personally would go helmet free on Sunday. I call my bill "Red Herring, House Resolution 3963 Affordable Health Care for America Act- With Rider"* (no pun intended). The “rider” of course being Helmet Free Sunday- Coast to Coast. For two long years, I’ve been calling for Single Payer Health Insurance, in tandem with the elimination of several cabinet level agencies, and perhaps make this Universal Health Care thing half way palatable to Republicans. The Department of Education would be a great place to start cutting; as in all of it. The responsibility belongs with the state and towns. As for my “rider” being dangerous to biker's health? Might not the extra attention of this debate, and later, when hopefully it’s passed, actually decrease fatalities as a result of motorists heightened awareness of bikes- who one day out of the week- get to let “their freak flag” fly so to speak
*In legislative practice, a rider is an additional provision annexed to a bill under the consideration of a legislature, having little connection with the subject matter of the bill. Riders are usually created as a tactic to pass a controversial provision which would not pass as its own bill. Occasionally, a controversial provision is attached to a bill not to be passed itself but to prevent the bill from being passed (in which case it is called a wrecking amendment or poison pill). wikipedia .
