    Well - there we have it - ban forced induction motors and V8's and all will be well!!

    (does that sound analagous to - ban nasty ''assault'' rifles and hi cap mags??)

    Well - seems the kids will be choosing the straight sixes, or simply the normally aspirated ''go fast'' models. Great legislation - well thought out it seems (not!). Leave it to Gov and committees to make sure things are screwed up.

    Wasn't it Einstein who stated that the only difference between 'genius' and 'stupidity'...was that 'genius' has its limits?...

    It takes a goverment Bureaucrat to really screw things up
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    To quote a fine comedian, with a slight change

    You can't legislate stupid
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    I have to think If I was an owner of a car manufacturer involved, I'd have to think hard about actually saying to hell with you and I'm not selling you ANY of my cars anymore. Then proceed to offer huge discounts to any other countries that offered the same models they banned. Then I might offer a horse and buggy combo package to the Ausies IF they lifted the ban.

    when boost is outlawed...only outlaws will have boost.

    I cry a bit for the way our world is going. No one can think for themselves anymore.

    Bad logic spreads like a disease. Common sense and rational thought seem to be taking a back seat to reactionism in more and more areas. It's sickening to watch.
