The history of the thread is that it was intended as a satire on the gun rights thread.

Be that as it may, many SUVs are poorly designed and are a danger to other people, not the SUV driver. We already legislate and regulate motor vehicle safety, so there is nothing inherently troubling about requiring these vehicles to shape up or ship out.

Ah. I see now. Where is that gun rights thread by the way? Wink

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

RE: SUV Rights Acknowledgement
I'm a pick up truck kind of guy. I use it and is way more practical. I can haul with it and still go off road. I can hunt and haul the deer out of the woods in the bed not on the hood or bonnet. In fact I can haul 2 or 3 of them. I never understood why buy a SUV. It's a yuppy thing I think. I know they sell the hell out of them. My Truck can go anywhere a SUV can go.

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a
free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their
political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their
own purpose. ~ Thomas Jefferson
