    She must be a liberal.

    Probably right, if she was a conservative she would be hoping he would get in an accident so she could get her hands on the insurance money.
    Plus if he died, she wouldn’t have to help take care of him.

    She must never have read the statistics.

    “Liberals” FOUNDED this country, dammit! The “conservatives” fled to other British possessions- or shut up.

    It is true that elderly drivers have accidents. I’ve seen the results out on the interstate roads because they drive so slow they can’t get to the rest stop before they pee their pants.

    There are way too many takers on both sides of the fence. I have lived in the Philippines since I sold my house and small trucking company in 2004. Where I go for coffee some mornings there are about 30 retired Americans that hang out there, most of them are Republicans that sound just like you, and almost all of them are double, and triple dippers

    Not all of them Benedict Arnold and many more went back to England.

    I would say there was almost a three hundred year time gap there.

    When my mom at 86 drove (aimed) me from Stapleton airport to Littleton, and only ran 4 red lights, I suggested, after changing my underwear, she might at least be tested for competence behind the wheel. My brother thought she was fine, but then his wife has narcolepsy and had only run over four people on motorcycles, up to that time.

    When my license was last again renewed for 8 years, so not testing, not even vision until I turn 74. Sorry, but that’s ludicrous. I really feel that at least without additional costs, every driver over 70 should have at least a vision test to make sure they can see. (I once stopped a legally blind driver, who’d just gotten his license renewed, and was all over the road. He was 86, I had his 22 year old “girlfriend” take over the driving, and pulled his license.)

    I’ve been a licensed racing driver, trained pursuit driving to police, and picked way too many bodies off the road, and out of vehicles in law enforcement, and as an EMT. Yes, we DO need to get dangers off the road, like older drivers with physical problems, and morons using cell phones while driving (now up to about 88% of “drivers”).

    I would be quite happy if the state DID start making sure at my age, I’’m still a safe driver. (But then don’t we all think so, including the folks in the fast lane of the freeway doing 45 in a 70mph zone, and refusing to “drive right”?)

    A lot of pedestrians and bike riders don’t realize how hard it is to see them.
    My Nissan truck has a huge A pillar (so if it turns over it won’t crush the top) and it is hard to see out the back of almost any modern vehicle.

    I read a letter from a woman who went to the license bureau with a walker and they road tested her.
    If she hadn’t had the walker you just have to look in the device on the desk and read the letters.
    All they care about is the $54 for 8 years.

    This takes time, the present technology would require the roads be torn up and resurfaced.

    “Liberals” FOUNDED this country, dammit! The “conservatives” fled to other British possessions- or shut up. (end quote)
    The way history works is this=
    True and genuine Liberals do the establishing of Freedoms…
    Jesus was a Spiritual Liberal, establishing Forgiveness of sins for repentent sinners….
    Then it is the duty and mission of the sincere followers to keep the Original Charter of Freedom from being shredded and discarded by future “pseudo-liberals” who only want to overthrow the Original Charter and rebel against the Founding Liberal.
    In the 1700s, the English redcoats represented the Tories, or “conservatives” who wanted to retain the English royalty as rulers. George Washington led a ragtag volunteer army to win independence…the real “liberals”…
    today the political conservatives are trying to CONSERVE the original charter, our US Constitution, while the neo-liberals are teaching it is a “living, growing, changing” document, which effectively discards our original Bill of Rights and form of Republic with representative government of and for the people.
