This is a case in point--I'm not a right-winger. You're making assumptions of me based on your own pre-conceived notions.
Whether or not you get "attacked" by right wingers has nothing to do with me as an individual. You can be upset about that all you want, and you can
post cry-baby images trying to make some immature ad hominem attack, but if your goal is to start getting people to have a serious discussion with you
about the topics that you post, then this approach is not going to work.
And I'm not here to talk about Caleb, I joined the discussion to point out that your blatant accusation that a lack of federal/state regulation is
what causes accidents like this does not have a solid foundation. I provided examples of things that are federally regulated up the wazoo that still
have mistakes and still kill people.
I have to agree with the few people on this thread who blame the park--safety harnesses and ride maintenance in general should be an absolute priority
where no expense is spared. It is obvious from this accident along with the comments made by other riders about their harness that this ride has been
neglected (assuming these people complained about the issues to part personnel). This family absolutely should sue the park for their gross
negligence, but in my opinion, I don't think starting a government agency that has absolute oversight of amusement parks is the right solution,
especially when you consider exactly how many amusement parks there are in America, and how low the ratio of injuries to non-injuries is in regard to
riders of the parks' rides.
And to remind you again, I'm not a "right winger," nor am I a conservative, nor am I a Republican. So, please, set aside all of your pre-biased
notions of someone who may disagree with your stance and please only respond to me as an individual, not a piece of a larger group.
