Have you seen this article on WND? A cop with a radar gun clocked a Camaro at various speeds:
“He was going north, or east, toward Two Harbors. … The first speed that came up was 171, then 168 and then 143. When he went by me it was a blur.
“You get used to seeing people going 65 or 70 and what that looks like. But I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s like a rocket on wheels at that point.”
There’s a fun video at the end of the article showing how a Camaro can be tweaked to top 200 mph.
Fun stuff, no doubt.
Ready for my buzzkill?
Driving is a privilege. Freeway speed limits are generally between 55 and 75 mph, with some areas going as high as 85 mph (if I can believe Wikipedia). The only reason one would want a car that can go so fast is to break the law.
Of course I’m using the “logic” of the left here.
Let’s apply this to firearms.
Anti-gun (anti-freedom) people sometimes say things like, “OK, you can keep your Second Amendment, but you can only have guns that were available when the Constitution was written. Sheesh, they didn’t even have electricity back then and we’re still trying to run our country based on stuff they wrote?”
These same types argue against the Bible and Judeo-Christian values in the same way.
If these progressives are so enlightened and their ideas so brilliant, why are we devolving, dividing, and disintegrating? Things seemed to work better when we were still a Constitutional Republic.
But, I digress.
“They” say there is no reason to have a firearm with a large capacity clip. That just makes it easier to kill more children before having to reload. We counter by saying it makes it easier for us to protect ours when three masked marauders (armed with stolen guns (or Fast and Furious guns)) break into our castle. Remember “When seconds count, the Police are minutes away.”
Our actions save lives. We have a God given right and obligation to do so. That some would limit our ability in this endeavor is anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-God of the Bible, anti-everything the USA used to stand for. It takes away their control of the populace, and that’s what they want: total control over all aspects of our lives.
Those of us who cling to our guns and Bibles, our thoughts of a once great America, and our prayers that we return there, annoy those in power and all of their little progressive minions.
So what in the world does this have to do with a fun Camaro that can go really fast?
If the maximum speed limit is 85, why do you need a car that can go 150? Isn’t that just an attractive nuisance that promotes street racing? And haven’t we seen too much death and destruction in illegal street races? If we can save just one life wouldn’t it be worth it to only produce vehicles that max out at 85 mph? And, oh my, that speed seems awfully fast, too. If we went slower we could save a lot of fossil fuel and traffic collisions may be less fatal.
If it saves just one life…
Driving is a privilege. Being armed is a right.
I’ll go back to the musket of the Founders when the progressives go back to the race car of the Founders, i.e., a horse and buggy.
Not saying the Camaro is the progressive’s choice of vehicle, just ranting… and a little upset I can’t afford one of those rocket cars, that would be a blast to drive.
