Click it or Ticket or attack of the fascist nannies
DOT has gone whole hog in coercing safety by using the police to hassle us because we're too stupid to decide to use seat belts or not. I usually wear my seatbelt but one should be free to decide how safe they want to be. As long as your actions don't directly hurt anyone else, it should be your business, not some dumb porcine asshole who probably hates and abuses you anyways. Leave it to New York, under the Mussolini of fascist nannies: Cuomo, to pass the nation's first seatbelt law. It gives bored bullies a good chance to hassle folks under the benevolent rubric of protecting you from yourself. Leave it to the rest of the fascist nannies, and the legions of paranoid ninnies who worry about Skylab and SARS, to make this crummy patronizing law into a national religion of forcing health and safety down everyone's throat.
