I was hoping the ban would remain lifted until a week or so after the election, just so we could express our thoughts about the outcome. But apparently not. Sad

The thing is, different people have different views on things. They need to work out a way to work out an agreement about what should be done. This process of working out a solution is called politics.
A big problem is that in this complex world of today, there are laws and regulations governing almost everything. These are passed by politicians.

Didn't he drive for Jaguar? I seem to recall a learning a lesson from a comment he's supposed to have made about paying very close attention to traffic conditions ahead by watching for brake light activity....that it was a warning of a potential accident. That doesn't work as well today as it did then in city traffic as brake pedal use has been replaced by use of the accelerator and horn.
