The Obama administration is expected to announce they will host a "Texting summit" to deal with the "serious issue" of driving while distracted.
Perhaps as you read this you are unemployed or worried if you will have a job next week.. Perhaps you are sitting about wondering when the Sheriff will show up to serve you your foreclosure papers on your house that is worth far less than what you owe on it. Perhaps you have a son or daughter in Afghanistan. Perhaps you are wondering just how your Healthcare would be affected if the Obama boondoggle of Health care is passed.. Maybe you are sitting around wondering just how we PAY for all this?
Those are REAL ISSUES. Those are issues worthy of a presidents time and energy. We should be far less concerned about people driving while distracted and be more concerned about Obama who is being President while distracted.
The Transportation Secretary is bringing together senior transportation officials, Members of Congress, members of Law Enforcement and academics who "study" this issue to come up with solutions.
As a taxpayer, that is, if you are one of the few people employed and actually earning enough to pay taxes, should be outraged. Outraged that we will no doubt be flying people in for this summit, that countless staff hours will be spent on this summit , all at a time when this country is bleeding red ink .
You do not need a summit to reach the conclusion that driving while distracted is dangerous. There is a solution you ban it, BUT that is a state level decision and not something this administration needs to waste time, money and resources to debate.
We have a President who has NO CLUE what is important to the American Public right now and as this country is falling apart, headed towards socialism where no one has any responsibility and the government controls everything, the Obama administartion is "concerned' about the serious issue of texting. There is no focus in this administration , that cats much like a small child on their way to school when they see a butterfly and follow it and wind up lost.
69 Banks have failed so far this year, 24 of which in July alone. Unemployment numbers continue to rise as major corporations cut employees in an effort to gain some profits which is setting the stock market up for another "false market' which could have disasterous results when companies run out of people to cut. Millions of Americans have simply given up on finding work and millions are facing the expiration of their unemployment benefits. More and more experts looking at the various health care proposals on Congress agree that Obamacare could be the nail in the coffin that drives this county to insolvency. July was a deadly month in Afghanistan with 42 American deaths as Obama plans on increasing American troop levels to 68,000.
With all the above going on, the Obama administration wants to hold a"texting summit". REALLY?
