If I Ruled the World – Again (12/1/09)
Here are some more changes you could expect if I ruled the world:
If I ruled the world, we would have a law in Kentucky that would suspend anyone's license for 90 days if they are caught texting or emailing while driving. Other states are doing this now and it makes great sense. You see, it gets real serious when their distraction is putting me or my family -- or your family -- in danger. Texting and driving simultaneously cannot be done safely and we need to stop doing it.
If I ruled the world and Michelle Obama and the kids wanted to go with the president on a trip that would be fine, but they would be required to come back at the same time on the same plane as he. No more keeping a second 747 and a full security detail a couple extra days in a foreign country so the girls can shop and sightsee on the taxpayer's dime.
And if I ruled the world, nobody would be afraid to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Chanukah" if that's what they meant to say. And if somebody actually said "Happy Holidays" it would be because they meant "Happy Holidays" and not because they were afraid of sounding politically incorrect if they got too specific.
I always like it when you let us know what you'd do if you ruled the world, so call us and share your thoughts.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
