Goddammit. We know there are idiots in this country who have no business reproducing. Sadly, this has always been the case. And as eugenics run counter to our antifascist tendencies, all we can do is use our bully pulpette to grouse about a bill in Oregon that lawmakers are attempting to pass, mandating that children under 13 ride in the back seat of automobiles. We're all for safety — to a point. And what of kids in non-quad-cab pickup trucks? Will children be banned from riding in sports cars? Or vehicles without five-star crash ratings? At some point we need to be cognizant that overregulation and a society of fear play right into the hands of the asshats who want all of us to be just like them. Hey brother, can you tell me the way to the nearest megachurch?
