God forbid they have to pay for seat belts on school buses. They need all the money they can appropriate from other projects to pay for the war and cover up their backroom dealings and payoffs. As long as you let them scare you, they will continue to have their hands in your pocket.

I believe all school buses should have seat and shoulder belts. I also think local or state money shold be used to pay for it. There isn't a logical reason why federal money should be used to pay for retrofitting seat and shoulder belts. let the owning authority pay for the retrofit and let it be paid as the money is availab le but it should be paid before money to mow school fileds and before money to host athletic clubs and events.

Call me insensitive but why are they going to spend the money on the short buses when everyone knows who usually rides in them? Doesnt make sense to me.
