Just when you think you've hear some of the dumbest ideas in the world, leave it to the texas legislature.

Have you heard this..its already passed the house.

It's a bill allowing you to read texts sent to you while you drive.

But, wait.

Hold the phone...it's going to be against the law if you text someone when you drive.

Let me say this again.

It would be illegal to send a text while you drive..but its ok to look down and read your phone while you drive.

Does this not just make you want to set your hair on fire?

And it's this type of intellect that keeps giving your kids the tass...taks and now..a new standardized test.

The only folks who win here are lawyers who will be defending you in court convincing a snickering jury..lets face it..they'd have to be..that your thumb was not on the keypad of the phone.

your honor my client was just cupping the phone so they could see it better.

If it fits you must acquit.

They've already tried this in wisconsin...and so far have ticketed 5 people.

Five.

You know why so few?

It's hard to prove.

What about phone in the hand illegal or illegal.

This is troubling.

This is frightening.

This is absurd.

That's my point of view, whats yours?

It's just as dumb as seat belt laws,,,,,,It's not about protecting lives, it's about making new ways to get into the taxpayers pocket and keep their lawyer buddies employed through divide and conquer of the people and dividing the people's money from the people.

We sent them to Austin to nullify unconstitutional and unfunded mandates. We sent them to stop funding illegal immigrants. And we sent them to stop confiscating private property. NOT to waste more of our hard-earned wages by making stupid laws and regulations. Good grief!

That is the Republicans for you...nothing they do makes any sense.

Bet if you had a contest for which party could come up with the dumbest ideas, it would be close, but I'm sure the Democrats would win.
