Default New Law Requires You To Listen To Greta Thunberg Lecture Before Purchasing Gasoline

U.S.A series of new bills working their way through state legislatures in New York, California, Oregon, Hawaii, and several other progressive states will require you to listen to a Greta Thunberg lecture before purchasing gasoline.

Motorists will be required to watch a 20-minute lecture by the 16-year-old climate activist before they purchase gallons and gallons of harmful fossil fuels.

"We want to make sure drivers are informed," said California Governor Gavin Newsom, who says he will sign the bill into law. "So we are having them get lectured by a 16-year-old so they will have all the facts before they do something rash like put gasoline in their cars to go to work."

Once the driver has listened to Thunberg's entire lecture, they will be prompted to complete a quick, fifteen-question quiz to show they understand how horrible they are for driving a car. Drivers who get at least 80% will then be allowed to refuel their vehicles. As they refuel, the screen will simply play a clip of Thunberg saying, "How dare you!" over and over again.

The law will not apply to celebrities purchasing jet fuel.

I will pay as much attention to her as I did to that gun grabbing kid from Florida. Seriously, I'll give her the exact same amount of consideration and respect that I gave to that kid. Because, you know, kids are experts and know everything.

So once again we have government leaders insulting the intelligence of the very people that elected them. I have no problem with that. After all those idiots deserve that disrespect. It's from those for whom they voted.

But why must the rest of us suffer?

I don't know about the rest of you but I get pissed answering questions about "do you want a car wash today?" "Please enter your Zip code" " Why not try our new Taco Pizza?" To be required to listen to left wing dogma would send me to another station.

I read this thread and was amused that some seemed to be taking it seriously. As Jim said, "It's from the Bee".

Depends on where you buy it. the price can swing nearly a dollar a gallon depending on where you buy it. I got it at Costco for $3.23 and paid $4.15 in our small town of Valley Springs. Marty

Babylon jokes asidr, it's a sad state of affairs when a kid who rode his bike as fast as he could to get his camera is in control of firearms possession rhetoric, a 16 YO Swede who looks 12 is handling the environment, and 4 idiot newby 20 somethings have seized control of Congress, and half the country sees nothing wrong.
