Help me understand this...

These questions will apply to those of you who are the more "conservative" of us.
Questions:
1) Why do drivers drive so damn slow... if it says 45mph you can legally go up to 5 mph over (meaning <5) yet i see people go 5-15 mph slower... WTF? And i tell you this now, the whole going slower thing protects you as much as duck and cover does from an atmoic bomb. You go slow and switch lanes as someone is going a bit over speed limit you will be rear ended. And despite what you will claim it really would by your fault for not going the speed of the "flow" as the driver ed videos say.

2) Why do people even want to try a republican for president (mcain). Honestly, he actually said that the bush administration has furthered our economy and he agrees with his economical strategy. I'm an independant but honestly, i'm willing to go for anything but idiots who support their party members blindly,,, and the people who support those politicians -_-

3) Why do drivers slow down to 1/2 the speed limit in bad weather. Honestly i seed people go from 45 to 30 mph when it starts drizzling with near 100% visibility! WTF! And this is on STRAIGHT roads, not the curved ones!

4)People on intersections... why are people so damn cautious on the intersections, the more cautious you are the more reason other people have to be cautious of you since they don't know wtf you're doing.


5) Wtf is up with all of America and the "pastor" ordeal, it's their church leader, that doesn't mean that it will dictate what they'll do in life. It's like saying that if a priest would start screaming screw the _____ government then everyone would suddenly agree, yet in reality most people would just go to a different church...

6) Why did Hillary lie 2x, TWO TImeS IN A ROW about her flight to Bosnia... she even said her plane did a corkscrew landing under sniper fire, wtf?

    1) Wow, 45mph means you can go over by 5mph?! That's messed up, doesn't that defeat the point of a speed limit? Surely calling it 50 would be better.
    Anyway, the UK highway code says that speed limits are the maximum speed you should be driving, they aren't a target speed, and you should only reach them in good conditions. But it is annoying getting stuck behind people driving slowly for no good reason.
    2) Oh God.
    3) It's safer that's why!
    4) Intersection? Whatever, being cautious is always going to be a good idea whilst driving.
    5) N/A
    6) N/A

    Lukie, what you said about the physics etc. That's just showing that these slow drivers expect to get into car accidents. I drive fast, really fast and i haven't been close to a car accident, i haven't even been pulled over. On intersections i pull when i have to and not make everyone behind me wait like a jack ass cause i'm too scared to make a turn. Reaction time doesn't matter if you're the victim, if someone is trying to get past you and you're just blocking them cause generally i noticed that the slow drivers don't look at their mirrors much, just kinda switch lanes whenever... well then ya... it seems that they're just the bad drivers while the faster drivers tend, note, tend to be the better drivers. Perhaps the world needs to like add fear of speed reduction classes prior to allowing people to drive? And honestly driving slow doesn't mean your safer, i go 10 mph over in raining conditions, (sometimes when visibility is okay) and i don't get close to spin outs, yet a few days back when i was going out for the mail i saw a guy tail fish 3 TIMES and then drive onto my neighbors lawn when it was drizzling and he was goign like 20 mph in a 30 mph zone...

    IMO, Obama supporters are doing the exact, same thing. He has very little experience, so he probably won't be able to do half the things he says he can do. I supported him myself until I thought about it some more. I really hope I'm wrong though, since he seems to be ahead. I just really hope the next president can actually do something good for the country. So far, it seems to me like Obama is winning on charisma alone.

    I'm not an Obama supporter, but I kinda agree. The whole ordeal just kinda exploded.

    I didn't see/hear it when she said it, but I assume she was probably joking.

    Maybe she was just BSing, I don't know. She hasn't tried to insult voters though... Obama with his "clinging to guns" from bitterness crap. Eh... I guess we're screwed no matter what. None of the candidates are really that great, I guess that's the problem. (I really just hope I'm wrong about that) I think Hillary is the best of the worst though, especially from having been at the White House for so long, but she probably doesn't have a chance now anyway. I just try to think of it this way as much as possible.... anyone is better than Bush.
