He’s taking the brakes off his car.


Thanks to R for the submission. I intended to do more with this one, but at times the One Man Polemical Band falls a bit behind … and it’s been that kind of week.

I’m an Anti-Braker, by Robert Moore, Jr. (Encouraging an Informed Polity)

Guys, I wanted to let you know about a personal decision I recently made. I don’t really feel like discussing it, but I want to put my position out there. Please be respectful. This is a really long post, but please read the whole thing.

I’m taking the brakes off my car. This isn’t a rash decision, so please listen up.

A few weeks ago I saw a car accident – two people went through an intersection at the same time. Both slammed on their brakes at the same time and collided. Fortunately no one was seriously injured.

But then it occurred to me – if they had just gone through the intersection, they wouldn’t have collided. The brakes CAUSED the accident!
