That's the ticket. Carry a Raquel Welch with you wherever you go.

Bah - Raquel is just a bit to soft & warm. If you can't bring yourself to accept all the good reasons to carry a knife you could just carry an insane soul-eating clown chick on the back of your bike.

If you don't vote because you feel that your vote "counts for bugger all"; you are part of the problem, and not part of the solution. I have no time for 'sheeple' who piss and moan about the state of affairs when they failed to get off their dead asses and vote; I don't want to hear it. Our national election may or may not have had the results that I desired; but at least I stood up to be counted. ................James.

I agree 100%. I can't vote in all elections here (as I am a dirty foreigner), but those I can vote in, I do vote in. And those I can't, I tell the missus who to vote for. Whether she does vote for who I tell her or not, I have no idea....

I believe your last two elections were decided, in part, because people who would not normally vote actually DID. My vote may be worth bugger-all, but add together all the buggers-all, and you've got power.

I'm actually a bit of a fan of making voting compulsory, as it is, or should be, more of a duty than a right. Or, if you refuse to vote, and you complain about ANYTHING, then you should be beaten. Or shot. Or at least not listened to.

Your vote may be worth

We're talking about voting, not politics, I think. I think we were both very careful to NOT make any kind of comment on politics, beyond how voting affects it...

There should be a civics exam before you can register to vote; I don't like people who know nothing by choice being allowed to impact the direction of the country.

I also think that if you have the option to vote, you should be required to use it (even if only to show up to select an "I abstain" option), or lose the right to vote.

Back to the original topic, I carry a folding knife almost everywhere I go because it's a handy tool to have along, it's not for sticking in people. I think brandishing a weapon in a confrontation only leads to escalation; I've only had a few heated confrontations in my life, none of which came to blows and none ever required a weapon to resolve. If a knife had been introduced, I am pretty sure some of those would have ended very badly for everyone.

If where you go and what you do leads you to believe being armed is essential, you should probably be changing where you go and what you do.

Regarding voting, voting on any ballot measure pertaining to raising or spending taxes should be limited to those who actually pay taxes.

Voting is a RIGHT. Not voting is also a RIGHT, even though I may not agree with a man's choice not to. All these requirements that you propose would change voting to a PRIVILEDGE. It's easy to disenfranchise citizens when voting becomes a PRIVILEDGE. Then a dictatorship isn't that far behind.

If where you go and what you do leads you to believe being armed is essential, you should probably be changing where you go and what you do.

Why would you introduce clear thinking and common sense into the discussion? The easiest fight to win is the one you avoid in the first place.
