    I'd like to say you have got to be kidding, but I can't. This is our future. This is the USA from now on. We'd better get used to it.

    And there they go introducing it into the lives of younger and younger people. Kids who grow up with this will think it's normal (it isn't) and acceptable (never under any circumstances, never even with terrorists on literally every street corner) and won't dream of questioning or fighting it.

    And all the while, politicos will be crowing "Children and saaaaaaafetyyyyyyy! Safety for chiiiiiiiildreeeeeeen!" and *CLICK*...off go people's logic circuits as they mindlessly nod their assent to their children's rights being robbed because hey, what are 235 years of liberty in what used to be a revolutionarily-free democratic republic that led the world in justice and civil rights next to SAVING EVEN ONE LIFE?

    I seriously (expletive deleted) hate Americans sometimes. This safety fetish has got to GO.

    Americans want to live forever and with the "guarantee" they'll be safe from every imaginable threat out there...It's just part of our modern day culture. Helicopter parents, helmets for every imaginable sport or activity, Nanny states etc - yep American's have a safety fetish.

    As George Carlin so astutely (if crassly) put it: "Our kids are gonna need helmets for everything but jerking off!"
