Seat belt law same as communism

— West Virginia got $1 million from the government to pass a seat belt law. That means Jay Rockefeller, Earl Ray Tomblin, Joe Manchin and Nick Rahall are all $250,000 richer.

But folks, you can’t stop someone in a car for a seat belt when there are no seat belts on school buses, city buses or motorcycles. It is like there is a set of laws for some and not for others.

This is called communism. You can not come in to something I own and tell me what to do. What’s next? Coming into my home and telling me where to sit?

What about the lady who wrecked in Princeton just the other day. If it wasn’t for two men who saw it she would have drowned because she could not get her seat belt off.  I will sue every city, state and police force who stops me. This violates my freedom of choice.
