California; The Dead State

-Because of the newly imposed lawsuits that were issued to six of the world's largest car manufacturers, I can see California on the verge, very soon, of an economic collapse. First it's lawsuits. The next step will be governmental restrictions enforcing anything that may promote "global warming". You may think that I'm being vague and arbitrary to say the least...good; I've learned how to be this capricious from the current two-bit political figureheads that somehow slithered their way into some sort of authoritative position.

-The restrictions have began around cars and their "pollution"; soon you will have to say goodbye to factories. The "public nuisance" that Ford, GM, Toyota, Chrysler, Nissan and Honda dish out is all based around an assumption; the assumption of global warming.

-Stealing money from a successful company and to use the rhetorical mask of labeling it as "suing", all on the premise of something that hasn't been validated, is very evil. This might be the most immoral thing I've seen all week, and I've seen some immoral things this week.

-Since Californians have always been on the forefront of great, new, innovative ideas, like the counter-culture period of the 1960's, I'm mildly suprised at Attorney General Bill Lockyer's recent decision. should almost be able to taste the sarcasm.

-Lockyer continues to state that:

"Vehicle emissions are the single most rapidly growing source of the carbon emissions contributing to global warming, yet the federal government and automakers have refused to act. It is time to hold these companies responsible for their contribution to this crisis."

-I honestly never thought that succesful and innocent businessmen, trying to make this world a better place through their own rational self-interest, could be nailed to the cross with so much charisma and "justification". These individuals are getting persecuted on the grounds of global warming; they're being abused around an idea that has no documented evidence. This is the antithesis of the American moral and legal standard.

...I hope you brought Mr. Lockyer skees, his slope may get a little slippery.

-It doesn't stop with the Attorney General; David Doniger, the climate policy director for the Natural Resources Defense Council, states that:

"CEOs and members of boards of directors of companies have to be thinking, 'Do we have liabilities here? Are we exposed here'? These kinds of suits are only going to multiply until we have an effective national legislation that curbs global warming."

-Of course! Legally preventing someone from obtaining money through voluntary transactions now-a-days is as American as apple pie; apparently so is stealing.

-Behold the new future of public transportation:

-I'm so impressed with the efforts to stop global warming! Now it only takes 3.5 hours to get to work rather than the usual 15 minutes! You guys in California totally know what you're doing!

-I can guarantee that environmentalists will not be satisfied until they see every American citizen "drive" something like the segway in the photo above.

-I'll leave you with a quote from P.J. O'Rourke that that I found interesting to say the least:

"We're told cars are wasteful. Wasteful of what? Oil did a lot of good sitting in the ground for millions of years. We're told cars should be replaced with mass transportation. But it's hard to reach the drive through window at McDonald's from a speeding train. And we're told cars cause pollution. A hundred years ago city streets were ankle deep in horse excrement. What kind of pollution do you want? Would you rather die of cancer at eighty or typhoid fever at nine?"

-It's true.
