Robin Taylor making sense? Am I stoned or what?

SB98 apparently would EXEMPT boat and plane owners who did not have insurance and who "notified" people that they didn't, would be exempt from liability. Thats right. If you crash yoour airplane into a school and you didn't have insurance, you wouldnt have liability. Well, Senator Robin Taylor (R-Wrangell) raised the roof over it. Of course Senator Con "Special Ed kids don;t deserve high school diplomas" Bunde (R-Hell) calls it "inherent risks" in living in Alaska.
I was very impressed with Senator Taylors arguments about persoanl responsibility.
14-5 it passed? Give me a break. I am also quite disappointed at who some of the people were who voted yes.

This guy is no Patriot- He and Wayne Ross represent the worst America has to offer:

Were lynchings an expression of "free speech," too?

I really should have been posting the stories on this fool earlier. In a nutshell, as you wil read in the linked story, he dumped water, not once, but TWICE on a group of anti-war protesters down in the Valley. The State is amping up the charges and I say Right On.

State adds charges against Soldotna anti-protester
WATER: Prosecutors say man's actions violated demonstrators' rights.

(Published: April 29, 2003)

State prosecutors stepped up the case Monday against the defiant father of a Marine who says he was being patriotic when he dumped water on war protesters standing at Soldotna's main intersection.
Four new misdemeanor charges, including more serious charges of assault and violation of constitutional rights, were filed in state court Monday against Soldotna fishing guide Jeff Webster.
Webster, 44, has admitted twice pouring buckets of cold water from a passing pickup on the protesters in March and early April. He was originally charged with harassment. The new fourth-degree assault charge came from another incident, when prosecutors say Webster pushed and threatened a male protester.
Two other new counts accuse Webster of violating the demonstrators' rights under the Alaska Constitution to freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. The law says one cannot intentionally injure, oppress, threaten or intimidate another person in an attempt to deprive them of their rights.
Webster said Monday he would plead not guilty to all charges.
"I don't regret it. They can charge me with what they want," Webster said.(more)
