Seriously, I do agree with this. Complaints about silly things empowers government to "do something". The way they "do something" is to create restrictions on what people can do from that point forward. If you ever wondered why we have 70,000 new regulations every year in the Federal Register, restricting what Americans can do, or mandating what Americans "must do", then wonder no more. You will eventually get a solution, however, whether it's what you wanted is usually questionable, and what you end up having to give up to get your questionable solution is a crapshoot. Often, it's way more than you wanted to surrender. The lesson: Be careful what you ask for.
