who are seat belts or motocycle helmet saving anyways besides the person smart enough to wear them. If people want to exercise freedom by making dumb choice that could easily kill them or mainthem then by all mean we should be letting them do this and hopefully they do so before they can reproduce. currently way to many dumb, sheeps reproducing who need authority figures to run their lives. Its self perpetuating and brings us to our current authoritarian permission based society where sheeple are voting for authority figures who are authoritarian, simply because they are not smart enough or have been duped into thinking they are not smart enough to run their own freaking lives!
just because I do not think ski helmet should not be mandatory, does not mean I myself do not wear one. wear one all the time, its my choice.Its freedom of choice. is that what we all say we want, but post by you and other seem to indicate that you would rather have someone telling you what to do then making the choice for yourself. It should be your choice to wear one as well as your choice whether your kids wear one. Stupid should hurt! in some cases stupid should kill. One thing is for sure though there is no sense in trying to to control people for the sake of their own safety as our current progressive authoritarian society likes to try to do.
now when others safety is in danger then I am all for controls. ALA avalanche closures, and the responsibility code.
