    Can you believe this? Police are now using night vision goggles in order to catch people at night who are not using their seat belts!

    The "brave new world" is closing in on us more every day. :mad:

    Taxation via Citation. :(


    I can't believe the public stands for such tactics.

    What ticks me off the most is that this is FEDERAL Nannyism. The Click-it or Ticket program is Federally mandated through funding restrictions that would be applied if you don't comply.

    I thought we elected Republican Officials to get rid of this type of inane Nannyism.

    From a buddy of mine who's a cop:

    "seatbelts and speed enforcement are required because this is a country full of RETARDS, most of whom aren't even to be considered AMATEUR drivers, let alone good drivers, and if we don't force them to behave at least a little bit, they kill each other and everyone else with their shitty habits then sue us for failing to save them from themselves"

    It's interesting how police seem to get more and more military equipment.

    Super technology for arresting grandma who forgets to click on her belt, but not used for rounding up illegals trespassing on our highways and byways. :wtf:

    What a piss poor attitude toward the public by "public servants". Some cops sound more like gulag officers. (not saying there isn't some truth in what he is saying!)

    I suppose the next step is to bring out the tasers to herd the dolts into line! Force them to behave! Force them! Force!

    (and be sure to take away their guns)

    Years ago my father told me that one day, insurance companies would not pay medical bills, from an accident, if the individual was not wearing a seat belt. It's coming.

    I wouldn't care what requirements an insurance company had as long as I had the CHOICE to buy insurance or not. But I don't. :mad:
