Question of the Day: How Incredibly Stupid is the Proposed 60 MPH Federal Limit?
You can tell by my phrasing that I don't like it. Not one bit. In case you haven't been paying attention, first term congressperson Jackie Speier– California's latest offering to the pyre of political lunacy– is proposing a Federally mandated national limit of 60 mph. I'm so angry I could spit. First of all, NO!!!!! Leave me alone! If I want to pay a bit more to get somewhere quicker that's between me and my bank account. Don't tread! Second, will hybrids, ethanol burners, hydrogen fuel cell and electric cars be limited to 60 mph, or just the dino-juice drinkers? And if all cars are limited, why? If I'm getting veggie-diesel from the local Thai joint what possible business is it of the Feds if I'm driving down the road at 80 mph? Can't they just get back to launching unnecessary wars, illegal phone taps and Alaskan bridges? You know, their core competencies. So what do you think?
