Did Holiday Inn sponsor this?

Beck and our friends at Incite bring this tidbit to our attention: California wants to prohibit the idling of trucks and busses for more than five minutes at a time.

Obviously these are people who have absolutely no clue as to why this is done, and is just one more attempt to force those big evil rigs off the highways. Yes, they wrap it all up in shiney Green paper, but that's not what these ludites want. Not realy.

Well, then its time to ban the use of huge diesel generators in government buildings. They kick on every time a blackout occurs, and can run for hours, even days. Not any More! Ban'em!

And those huge skyscrapers? They have them too, so there's enough power to keep a building operational and provide for elevators during an outage. They, too, can run for hours at a time. Ban them, too! Damned poluters.

Oh, what about the huge banks of these things that are on-site at every hospital, large or small, in California. Hell, according to the French, air condition isn't necessary and is quite probably unhealthy, so why do we need these generators at hospitals? If the power goes down, just open a window. The patients are all dying anyway. And we don't need to idle those generators for something as mundane as a neo-natal ICU or a trauma unit, or even a surgery. Ban those generators too. Pull them from their concrete pads and truck them into some less enlightened state in Fly-Over country.

But you can't, can you. No trucks left to haul them. They're all parked in huge lots in Arizona and Nevada with trailers full of rotting produce and decomposing meats because they can't idle in California to keep their loads fresh, and no one in California can get to them for the products they need.

But I digress. Never happen. Or will it?

Looks like a well thought out plan there, California Legislature.

Narrow minded weenies, every trucker in this nation needs to shut down for a two week vacation at the same time so they can enjoy their silence. The reality of a move like that might sober up some of our watermelon friends.
