You made the comparison with Hitler.
"This is what Hitler said when he had laws enacted for the safety and betterment of Germany and of course you should all be good German citizens and turn in your fellow citizens for breaking these laws or on the suspicion they might"

This is the thinking of Hitler. He viewed his race as better than.

May be if you used a different comparison that thinking would not have been thought.

Good point, Action. I agree with mrmossyone's sentiment - that we ought not be a bunch of tattle-tales and informers, despite the stupidity of some drivers' actions. But the point is lost with an overboard comparison.

Happy Holidays to all, by the way. Safe travels.

Pat

It all starts with a seemingly innocent, well meaning law and the slope becomes so slippery that momentum can't be stopped. I will agree it might be a little over the top but this gets me going. How about this is what our government officials said about the seat belt it's for the safety of all and you'll only be cited for it if your stopped for another citation but now they can stop you if it appears your not wearing your seatbelt. Now it's a law used to pad the coffers. I'll even go back and edit the previous post for the good of all. As the previous poster said I shouldn't have worried about it, it is Christmas after all. Sorry.

Well it wouldn't let me do it. I know someone around here knows how to make it disappear, so say poof and make it go away.

I declare a violation of Godwin's Law in post #39, and further discussion will not be tolerated.

That's not the case with my post #39 but I see it's pointless to argue it here. PM me if you would like to continue and I can show you how it's jermaine to the topic. You would be surprised at what laws he enacted first you would say that's no big deal. You know what take Hitler's name out of it and substitute your dictator or communist regime of choice and it still applies. Does everyone think that tyranical dictators start out with the terrible, unbelievable laws? No they start w/ seemingly innocent laws and slowly get the populace used to being controlled before they lay the big whammie down. Those that forget history are doomed to repeat it. This is my last word on this publicly, anyone who wishes to continue this with me please do so privately after Christmas. I'm sorry for stirring this up at this time. Forgive me and merry Christmas to all.

Oops. Now you've made a double Godwin.

The first person to bring Hitler or Nazis into the argument automatically loses the argument due to Godwin's Law.

If you accept the loss graciously, you may reopen the argument at a later date. But if you claim exemption on any basis, it a double Godwin, and you lose permanently.

Dang it. From now on I will avoid Godwin's law by using Stalin instead.

Well it looks as if I need to eat some crow. I've thought about it and I am wrong for using the Hitler comparison or any dictator for that matter. This is hard for me but I have made a mistake. We were not talking about a particular person/leader/regime but an idea so it was wrong of me to use that comparison. I wish to offer up a humble apology, especially to the person who's post I replied to. I believe what I said about how dictatators or government regimes gain control over their populace(by starting small and seemingly innocent and working their way up to total control) this simply doesn't pertain to this topic. Merry Christmas.
