Its the kind of comparison someone with a middle schoolers understanding of the law would make. The two aren't comparable.

Not even remotely close.

You can take your helmet or seatbelt off. It's impossible to unvaccinate.

Also, you can actually gauge their effectiveness. You get in an accident and the self belt prevented you from launching through the windshield. You catch COVID you can only make up bullshit that it did anything.

They kinda are, and the seatbelt law is unjust and needs to go.

Yeah, really not sure how it's the government's business. Can they mandate condoms for safe sex? Sunglasses to protect from cataracts? I feel like big government has never seen behavior that it couldn't mandate to be better somehow, but it certainly doesn't have a right to.

Maybe we all should wear adult diapers just in case we poop our pants

Knowing the degenerate left, they'd want you to wear a butt plug + diapers.....

Wearing something non permanent on the outside of your body to specifically and with backing data reduce your rate of fatality from an event that is devastating to people that experience it

Vs a permanent "solution" that doesn't stop transmission or infection, will require more injections, doesn't have long term studies, no real numbers of efficacy

Yeah. I can imagine protests for the first one. There will be wars of this one

There won't be wars. Every person wishing to go to college is forced to take it. Thus in a few decades, there will be no unvaxxed left, at least not enough to make a difference.

With 70% of eligible people already vaxxed, it seems too late even now

Wait till kids start dying. It might not save everyone, but I imagine there will be a response. If not, we deserve the centuries of darkness that are coming

The entire genre of "It's for your own good" laws need to go.

"The only part of the conduct of any one, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign."

Seat-belt laws are extortion

ZappedHiPoint 4 points ago +4 / -0

Damn straight, free pass to pull anyone over at any time.

"I pulled you over because it looked like you didn't have your seatbelt on"

That's why people were against that shit, gubment stepping too far.

Seat belt laws are state-level. Not comparable.

They were forced on the states by the federal government. Want those sweet, sweet highway funding dollars from Uncle Sugar? We're gonna need to see seat belt laws. They did the same thing during the OPEC oil embargo and gas crisis, when the highway speed limits were all lowered to 55 to save gas.

It was mafia behavior by govt. Enact these laws we want, or something bad will happen to you..

"We'll take your citizen's money, and if you'd like a handout from it, all you have to do is obey our random edicts."

Totally what the Founders had in mind, no?

3
Brickapede2 3 points ago +3 / -0

That is all true. However, coercion aside, seatbelt laws are state laws.

States have the general police power, the feds do not.

Accordingly, it is a horrible analogy.

If we were concerned with people's health we'd mandate diet and exercise.

Need to show ID and have a weigh in before getting an ice cream cone, maybe?

Hey, 'Quartz', putting a seatbelt on is the same as getting an irreversible medical procedure forced upon my body?

I’ve never heard of a seat belt giving someone myocarditis.

I always laugh at this too. I never supported any of those laws either.

Hmm I don't remember my employment being threatened for not wearing a seat belt

If you have a company car, I'm assuming any big company that issues one isn't going to be happy with you showing up with a seat belt ticket, or any ticket with their car. That probably wouldn't be a firing offense though.

There are a lot of laws this makes me question. Get rid of all vaccine mandates. remove seat belt laws. Get rid of the TSA please. Etc.

Compared to Helmets (and the V I suppose) Seatbelts actually do prevent you from killing someone else in the event of a crash. Unsecured persons in a car become ~200 pound projectiles that could severely injure/kill other passengers in the car.

It all went wrong when the first politician who proposed a seat belt law was not dragged out into the street by a mob and horsewhipped without mercy.

Left hanging from a gallows by the seatbelt with a sign "seatbelts kill" pinned to his corpse.

I’ve had to say the same thing you just did about seatbelts hundreds of times the last several years.

I'm old enough to remember my Dad being irate over the seat belt law. And what we are dealing with today is the reason why.

Sure they’re the same! If seatbelts were surgically implanted into your body that is.

Maenard 1 point ago +1 / -0

I remember when I put on the seat belt in 2003 and I couldn't take it off for the rest of my life. Seriously, though, it WOULD be like the seat belt regulations, if seat belts stopped working after you'd driven a mile, so you had to keep buying them every day.

I can take the seatbelt off after my commute

You know seatbelts. How they can give you seizures and make your heart explode.

I can take off the seatbelt. I can't become unvaxxed. If I die in a crash I kill no one but myself. However, the mRNA gene re-coder implement forces me to produce and shed the virus to make me a killer of others.

I haven't been sick the whole two years we've been 'pandemicking," except once, flu like symptoms for a couple of days when.....I rode in a vehicle with a guy who had been injected for the second time, who then had flu like symptoms himself, but seemingly had gotten over it. I rode with him a couple days after he said he was feeling good again and a couple of days after that....voila, I was sick for a couple of days.

Shedding spike proteins? If it wasn't that, it was surely a big coincidence for someone not sick before or after.

Bad analogy - I cannot be genetically altered by a seatbelt. Seatbelts have recalls and the manufacturer can be sued for faulty seatbelts. If I decide I don’t want to wear a seatbelt I have options to get around, no one is telling me that I can’t have my job because I don’t want to wear a seatbelt.

More trials were done in the efficacy of seatbelts than all of the vaxxxes combined.

Isn't the seat belt law 1. Legislation from congres? 2. State level? 3. In no way contradictory to anything in the constitution.
