Thread: Seat belts

  1. #11
    While I do not agree with the law of my state which requires me to do so..I cannot ignore the laws of physics. I wear a seat belt. I wear a helmet on my bike and ATV for the exact same reason. But it is MY choice. What my neighbor does is HIS choice. And neither the state nor I should have any say in that.
    "A Veteran is someone who, at one point in their life, signed a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is Honor.

    But to have the government control an aspect of your life, what say you to that? Any habit, lifestyle, hobby, choice of vehicle perhaps,

    All up for control and regulation or maybe a penalty for engaging in it...

    I was a smoker... I recall the price being 50 cents per pack when I began. With all the taxes being added the prices are up to $8.00... It's still a choice for some and they should be free to make it. 2nd hand exposure is an issue I agree.

    At some point a choice that affects you will come under fire...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Your right and that is where we see eye to eye. I have no problem with what people want to do in their lives. You want to smoke in your house, car, outside your house, hell even in the parking lot of a store go for it. I only take issue when what your doing effects me and my family. Point in case the Walmart in my city. The workers have a smoking area but are to lazy to walk to it when it's cold or wet. So they all stand just outside the goddamn door and start chain smoking. Just to get inside the store you have to walk through a cigarette firing squad. That's what I take issue with. Or the resturants who don't have an enclosed smoking area (back when you could smoke inside). Again I have no problem if you want to enjoy your meal with a smoke.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    The 2nd hand thing is an issue. When I was a smoker that was something I was very conscious/cautious of. Most people have forgotten that for each right or freedom there is a responsibility linked to it. Keep each others rights in mind and exercise your own...

    The seat belt thing is an individual choice, but since there is a dollar value attached to it now with insurance, there is control for the mitigation of risk...

    All of our rights will eventually come under closer examination and possibly restriction, when the socialist health care reform law kicks our asses.. I've been living with it here in MA since 2006... Cost increases have been it's legacy...

    +1 on that. I see that way too often.

    I still say if you drive a car, you have NO right to ***** about people smoking. The fumes a car puts out in a day is like what a person smokes in a life time, and you have NO control over where those emissions go, for example, into my yard or house.

    The same can be said about smoking! You have no control over the smoke after you exhail it! I have every right to ***** about Cancer sticks just as you have the right to ***** about automobile's! Something called the 1st AMENDMENT maybe you have heard about it That's ok we can agree to disagree on this matter! Now lets get back on topic.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    Anyone with a rudimentary grasp of the laws of physics can figure out that it just makes sense to wear a seatbelt. I don't need the government to tell me it's smart.....I can figure that out myself.

    I can still remember one of the many videos they made us watch in driver training called "RED ASPHALT". No idea when they made it I think the 70's or 80's it's really old. This was all the reminder I needed to put on my seat belt and not speed.

    I stand corrected. I should have started the statement with; "Unless you want to be a hypocrite..."

    My apologies.
