Whose definitions of harass and “annoy” is the Gestapo going to use? This looks like a real revenue raiser to me. Those politicians are smart.

In before the tyranny.

Just last week I annoyed a cop by telling him that he was being absurd for giving me a ticket for not wearing a seat belt.

There should be a Master's Thesis on the evolution of tyranny in this country.

Just read the major newspapers between 1955 and 1965, when installation of seat belts was made mandatory for the manufacturers, but wearing them would NEVER be mandatory.

The persuasion was based entirely on the survival instincts of the average person, in having the option of wearing them. If the heavy boot of the wannabe tyrants had suggested otherwise, the bill would have never passéd. Now, it's just another "revenue enhancement."

Just like the Income Tax, but that's another story...
