    Creating pollution to reduce pollution

    We've all been there. The line from hell. I'm talking about the dreaded annual trip to the vehicle inspection station. Granted, the experience has been a little less painful since the state changed vendors a few years ago, but ask yourself these questions:
    • What percentage of vehicles fail the test?
    • How much pollution do those failed vehicles generate?
    • How much pollution is generated by all the vehicles idling while waiting in line to be tested?
    Has any government wonk ever studied this? Are we really benefiting the environment by spending who knows how much on emissions testing?


    Uber Finances?

    Uber is running a radio ad in which they are recruiting drivers. There's a guy in the ad who says he makes $500 a month driving for Uber, but he could make $5,000 a month if he wanted to.


    So if this guy is passing up making $5,000 a month, why does he need $500 a month? If I worked an extra job because I needed an extra $500 a month to get by, why the hell wouldn't I make $5,000 if I could?

    Gee, could the $5,000 a month claim be an exaggeration?

    Who's to blame?

    Over the past couple of days, I have heard some interesting causes from left-wing media and liberal politicians for the civil unrest in Baltimore. Some of the looniest:
    • Military veterans
    • The Orioles and Ravens
    • Right-to-Work states in the South
    • Cuts in federal funding for Head Start
    I could take these one at a time, but is that really necessary? None of them listed 48 years of failed liberal policies, nor have they attempted to explain after spending billions of dollars on the War on Poverty, why the poverty rate is the same today as it was 40 years ago.

    They did say more money needed to be spent...
