In response to Comrade Sen. Mike Schneider’s bone-headed legislative proposal to use the compulsive power of government to force auto repair shops to check your tire pressure – or else! – reader Pete Fundis notes this sort of thing inevitably starts us down a slippery slope.
“Chuck, maybe they’ll take this a little further,” Pete writes. “Unlimited possibilities. At DUI checkpoints there could be a pressure check, or perhaps just have pressure checks randomly. I can already see the federal money pouring into our state for being the pilot program; what with the fuel savings and safety concerns.”
Frightening….because I can actually see it happening.
