    The government is perfectly okay with any type of “dirty” business, as long as it is THEY who are running it and not anyone in the private sector.

    I guess we can clean up the place for sale and stick a fork in California within 20 years. I don't expect to be around then. HA....

    They are so concerned about Co2 emissions they should ban beer, soda pop and bubbly wine.

    Maybe it's time to give California back to the original owners.

    This is a good start......

    Enough with all the nay saying about CA.
    They have been the pioneer in everything modern. Always looking forward to the next brighter future for mankind.
    I was born and raised there, right in the hub of it. The Bay Area. Palo Alto, CA.
    CA was the first with the 55MPH speed limit, NOX emissions standards, sanctuary state status perhaps, and what else that is so good?
    Well, there is always Microsoft and Bill.

    Why can't you all see that a head in the backside, up as far as it can go, is not he best thing for everyone?!

    No one knows what the world will look like in 20 years. It would be great if it was possible for that to be the case.

    The way technology is moving I would say it's very possible.

    California what can you say?
    They pushed real hard for diesel trucks to have to run DEF fluid because it was such a good idea, until they realized it's hurting their crops. Lol
    I heard places in California were talking about wanting to succeed from the Union.
    Now that a lot of the newer diesel vehicles are cleaner running then gasoline vehicles they want to ban diesels. Lmfao
    What an absolute S hole. I'm so glad I don't have to run through the armpit of northern Mexico anymore.

    55 mph speed limit, just a pain in the ###. Low NOX emissions, nothing but a pain in the ###. Sanctuary state, also known as aiding and abetting criminals. Hitting yourself in the head with a bat is no better than your head up your ###.

    My thoughts exactly, just because they're large, they think they can bully the rest of the country into thinking like they do. The fact of the matter is, diesels burn more effeciently than any gasoline burning 4 wheeler, maybe they should do away with them. I'm also sure when they start seeing a drop in freight deliveries they'll change they're "forward" thinking minds.
