"Because everybody else is" was considered a lame excuse when I was a kid.
I don't see how that's changed since then.

The excuse hasn't gotten any less lame,  but the sheeple have probably become somewhat more pliable...

Whenever I hear someone use a similar tactic in reference to raising taxes because a neighboring are had higher taxes, I always tell them, "Just because your neighbor smokes crack, it doesn't mean you should."

Just as applicable here, if not more so.
