Good Grief

Someone save the State bureaucrats from themselves. This is silly.

The brains in the Prius are still too smart for the Georgia emissions test. As this article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution explains, the software that state testers use is incompatible with the Prius computer and the testers can’t use the workaround that works on other vehicles (measuring the tailpipe exhaust during a two-speed idle test), because the Prius’ gas engine shuts down instead of idling. A new 10-step procedure developed specifically for the Prius doesn’t work all the time.

    Ummm, ok. The Prius is a hybrid. Meaning, it emits practicly nil pollution. One would think that they could become exempt from testing for a few years.

    Oh, haha. My mistake. The government is in charge. And we want them to provide healthcare?

    I can only imagine the headlines:
    “US Department of Healthcare Questions Existence of Cancer”
    or
    “Waiting List for Heart Surgery Grows to Seventeen Years”

    Where are the statesmen?
