fuel efficiency must be penalizedJoan Borucki, recently nominated by the governor to head the California DMV, proposes that every car in the state be equipped with a GPS device, so the state can levy a tax based on the amount of driving you do (and the time of day when you do it).
The problem, you see, is that cars are becoming more fuel efficient, and it's depriving the state of gas tax money.
I agree wholeheartedly, and I propose that we go a lot farther. These bastards who walk to work? Let's seize their bank accounts. Ride a bike to school? Well, that's mighty anti-social of you, especially in Los Angeles. Hand over your wallet.
Fortunately, we still have plenty of good people who are willing to step up and do their part. Thank god for socially responsible people.
