I see vids of that all the time on the news. Of course there usually is a cop car following and then they all jump out and run for it.

There is no way in hell I am going to get charged with "involuntary manslaughter" because some idiot driver wasn't wearing his seatbelt and we got into an accident. Maybe if it was a situation where I ran a red light and they were going through an intersection lawfully, then maybe. But in almost any other situation, you would be hard pressed to prove that I am responsible for some random persons decision to not buckle up, and their misfortune from doing so. I don't even think I would hire a lawyer in that case, I'd represent myself, cause it's a ludicrous charge.

Thats what I mean, if the accident was my fault, maybe, but even then, how am I held accountable for someone else not taking the precaution to wear a seatbelt. It's not like seatbelts are optional and they couldn't afford them, no they just chose to take the risk of not protecting themselves. It's a choice we all get to make when we get in our car, I'm just smart enough to know that I stand a better chance surviving an accident with the belt on. If someone chooses not to wear it (remember, it is a choice, no one is forcing anyone to not wear it) and something bad happens, they should have to deal with the consequences of their actions, not anyone else. This is just another example of our retarted society. No one can take the blame for their own mistakes. It's always someone else's fault.

What the liberal mind is passionate about is a world filled with pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice. Those who occupy this world are “workers,” “minorities,” “the little guy,” “women,” and the “unemployed.” They are poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised, exploited and victimized. They bear no responsibility for their
problems. None of their agonies are
attributable to faults or failings of their own:
not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty
judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition,
low frustration tolerance, mental illness or
defects in character. None of the victims’
plight is caused by failure to plan for the
future or learn from experience. Instead, the
“root causes” of all this pain lie in faulty
social conditions: poverty, disease, war,
ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice,
ethnic and gender discrimination, modern
technology, capitalism, globalization and
imperialism. In the radical liberal mind, this
suffering is inflicted on the innocent by
various predators and persecutors: “Big
Business,” “Big Corporations,” “greedy
capitalists,” U.S. Imperialists,” “the
oppressors,” “the rich,” “the wealthy,” “the powerful” and “the selfish.” this is why "we" are having the problems that we have, as a society "we" no longer want to take any personal responsibility for our actions, nothing is anyones fault..that's why we want to blame "bad teachers" for dumb kids..it's not the teachers fault..it's bad parents..it's the banks fault that YOU took out a loan on a house that you KNEW you couldn't afford..really..

Cali just passed a law that Mcdonalds cannot give toys away in happy meals without giving 1/2 cup of fruits or veggies.

Along with pending laws to restrict sodium content.

what's next? Laws telling us when and where we can go to the bathroom?

This is on the same page as the helmet/seatbelt laws. Our choices are being limited because irresponsible parents let their kids get fat and lazy, but it's not their fault, it's McDonalds' fault. Are you kidding me??
