    I cannot believe that even with such a bad economy that California would prohibit the best American Whizzer motorbike the sportsman from being sold in our state. Many of my relatives now call us the commy stateand it is no wonder why.

    California is definitely the commie state... but not because we cant buy a whizzer motorbike.

    True but I won't get started on all the reasons. We all know its bad out here.

    I got out [moved to South-Eastern Washington] 20 years ago. I go back every year or so to visit. It's now a LOT worse. The wisdom remains the same since the Little Big Horn, "Save the last bullet for yourself".

    yes the truth is -- Calif will probably never be the same

    if the cowboys could only see what's going on here

    would have been best to surrender to any and all Indians

    of course the same could be said for the whole country now

    The nanny state nutballs always seem to concentrate on the coasts it seems. They just love to dictate what you can and can't do all in the name of "public safety".

    It is why I say that you should stand against anti-smoking laws, and gun control laws. Because even if you don't smoke or desire to own a gun, it won't be long until they will be coming after something YOU love. In this case, the motorized bike.

    we dont have any control over the anti-smoking, gun, or any other laws... they just pass em and the idiots in LA and san fran keep electing the people doing it.

    For the record I like the anti-smoking ban in restaurants.

    Back in the 70's I used to smoke up a storm with everyone else watching martial arts movies in downtown Oakland. The cloud of blue green smoke and the smell of grass and tobacco really made the movies interesting. It was just a $1 for 3 features that ran over and over all day long.

    I got out of the Corps and out of CA, just before things started to go really red. I have more freedom in the conservative state of AZ than I would in the "Bear" state. Interesting Russia and California are both signified by bears.

    At least here in NJ, there was a law that restaurants needed to provide a "non-smoking" section. Then, they just banned smoking in restaurants, and bars altogether.

    I would prefer if there was no ban, and if someone didn't want to go to a restaurant because they allowed smoking, then they could choose not to go there. It is a private business, and the decision to allow smoking should be left up to the business owner. If he feels that he will get more business if he bans smoking, then he should be able to ban smoking.

    Cheer when they ban something that you agree with, but then you'd better keep quiet when they ban something you like.

    if somebody wants to smoke at a restaurant they can always go outside for 5 min...

    Given the choice, I think almost all the restaurants would ban smoking... since they banned smoking in public placesi, the restaurant industry has exploded. Turns out people eat out more and take their families with them if there is a smoke free environment to go to.

    Until they ban smoking outside. It has probably already been done. Be careful when you say "they" 'cuz someday "they" will be "you". Think slippery slope.......

    Restaurant industry exploding? I'm not too sure about that.

    Here at Atlantic City, the gubmint has been wanting to pass a smoking ban in casinos. The casinos are fighting this. Just the fact that the casinos were exempted from the ban speaks volumes about the effects. So now that the casinos are going bankrupt because of the new economy, they'll ban smoking and turn away more business. Brilliant!

    I'd love to open a restaurant where smokers are welcome, things are fried in trans fat, no diet anything is served, and children are banned. But I cannot do that. And no, I don't hate kids - who would make Nike sneakers? j/k - while family restaurants may have not suffered from anti-smoking laws, what about adult oriented restaurants? (those romantic restaurants for couples - I know you were thinking TT

    Hey, what all of you misses is that they try it out in CA first and than the whole country follows... but hey who is complaining? We all put up with it so who's fault is it and the few who sees all the unfair laws and regulations... well, they already have built a concentration camp for you... yeap, you heard it right... remember the Matrix? Not very far from the truth. The only difference is that the hard working people get it in the a.. and the rest just follows and looks for the pill...

    Tell me about it. Here in NJ, we are usually all too eager to adopt stupid ideas from CA.

    I think either banning smoking outdoors or in a casino is a ridiculous idea. Why would you ban smoking outdoors, and a casino is not a family place to begin with so who cares????

    "I'd love to open a restaurant where smokers are welcome, things are fried in trans fat, no diet anything is served, and children are banned. But I cannot do that."

    isn't that a bar????

    dont get me started on stupid ideas that come from California... and how the cancer seems to be spreading to otherwise good states. It makes me sick...

    I don't kow about CA, but here in the garbage state, you can't smoke in bars. slippery slope..........

    I know... it was a joke. I know all about the slippery slopes, remember... I live in California.

    The governator just passed a new handgun ammunition law that limits the amount of bullets you can buy and requires a thumbprint and form that must be kept by the seller for 5 years.

    I say slippery slope headed your way next partner... they dont like guns in jersey either.
