Click It or Ticket

Well, its that time of year again. I am sure you've send the endless stream of commercials sternly warning you that there is no escaping the all seeing eye of the law. Yep, Click It or Ticket is here again.

The program, created by the NHTSA, is ostensibly targeted at saving us from ourselves. Since the government likes to treat its citizens as property, rather than sovereign beings, this makes perfect sense to them and the nanny staters whose mission it is to use the government to protect us from ourselves.

Of course, in actual practice, the program is nothing more than a revenue grab. Police departments nationwide salivate at the opportunity of windfall revenues from the issuance of citations. As usual in politics, it is more about the money than anything else.
