Keep your government hands off my car’s tailpipe!

Two sad and pathetic bits of news as reported by The Truth About Cars.

First, Barry Oh!’s crack bureaucrats have released the finalized CAFE regulations for the year 2025. They clock in at 1994 pages in length.

Yes, that’s right, 1994 pages. Your results will not vary. (Remember: lift with your knees and not your back.)

Second, there’s this:

On July 1, all 37 million car owners in France were required to spend 2 Euros for a disposable breathalyzer to be kept in their vehicles at all times. Failure to do so will result in a fine of 11 Euros. Lest you think this is a weak attempt at a parody of the French and their love of wine, go here.

Cars mean freedom and freedom must be regulated (it’s for your own good—and the children).

And what about the standards for the government approved Chevy Volt, replete with its $7500 per vehicle taxpayer subsidy? It has had a waiver.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
