I guess he'll need to sign another executive order to ban watching porn while on the job.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

Within reason Alux!!

There's 1000 better things that he could be doing.

We have crime going up, debt going up, people losing jobs... and all he does is tell people not to text?

I mean come on!!

BTW He should really get rid of CAFE.

Laws like this make me laugh (not in a good way). We already have laws in place about distracted drivers, sad they have to spend time and $$ going into specifics.
