MASS. Town to decide SUV tax-'behavior modification'

Yep-more of big brother deciding what's best for you.

My favorite line/quote from the article(caps mine):

"I do think it's a good idea. You can use taxes to create incentives. And the fact that SUVs contribute more to global warming-I HOPE IT MOTIVATES THE RIGHT KIND OF BEHAVIOR", said Ken Pucker.

Mandatory Breathalyzers In Vehicles??

Yep-being discussed by powers that be as you read this.

Hmmm....might be some money to be made by non-drinkers-just hang out around bars and get somebodie's car started for them at a nominal fee. Crackheads would love it. Law of unintended consequences and all that.

Meet you at the bridge

You'll notice that part that says, "Emboldened by other Bans". It's really beginning to get sickening, folks. And Texas is rapidly becoming the #1 Nanny state of the south.

Karloffornia Rep wants to ban light bulbs....Nannys march on..

NUTS! When was this state supposed to fall off the continent? I personally have used flourescents since the 70's, but no one told me I HAD to do it. More of the fallout from the smoker ban horseshit-nannys everywhere.

Oh, Drinkers...the noose is going to get tighter...

Well, my, my-yet another sign of the times. It's for 'the public health', you know, after all.
