The Lege lies - so what else is new?

Some freedom-loving Repuglie in the Missouri Legislature has introduced a Bill to make not wearing a seat belt a primary offense -- one that you can be ticketed for, without any other circumstanses. As of now, you can't be arrested for that reason alone.

As far as I'm concerned anyone who doesn't wear a seat belt is brain-dead long before the accident happens.

But back when the mandatory seat-belt law was passed, the Lege, in order to get it passed, had to promise that they would never, ever, under no circumstances, make seat-belt laws a primary offense.

So they lied, but what else is new. Different people, different times, no respect for promises made in the past as long as the Repugs can get into your life, and in the case of seat-belts, your bedroom, a little better.

Plus the schools and cities need the money.
