The White House announced that the Department of Motor Vehicles, (DMV) will be abolished as soon as they empty the buildings. Judging from its history, (stagnant lines that move at a snail's pace) the lights at the DMV may remain on until the end of next year.
The announcement added: The hours spent at the DMV every five years will soon become history, and all insurance requirements will be canceled. Drivers, however, will continue to respect rules of the road, using the good neighbor, (or lane) honor system and summon police if said driver gets into a fender bender or causes an accident.
The spokesperson for The National Automotive Deregulation lobby, Shane de Gaulle, has managed to convince the House and Senate to eliminate licensing of drivers, noting that: Accidents happen everyday anyway, so why bother with a driver's license? Not to mention those pesky lines at the DMV. De Gaulle added, the DMV was just another one of those bureaucratic departments that Texas Governor Rich Perry should have included in his "Whoops" elimination list.
Lastly, de Gaulle said: Guns do a great deal more harm than vehicles and guns aren't licensed. Maybe fishing licenses should also be eliminated.
Similar to owning an assault weapon without a license or background check, it appears that now any monkey may get behind the wheel of a car, switch on the ignition and zip through traffic with impunity, as long as he doesn't cause a fender bender or commit vehicular manslaughter.
The furious spokesperson for the National Riffle Association lobby exploded. "We don't have monkeys shooting off guns!" He demanded an apology from Shane de Gaulle.
Shane de Gaulle replied he was not in favor of monkeys driving cars or shooting guns, even though the author of the article took liberty to insinuate as much.
Blame it on the messenger.
Forget licenses, the U.S. Senate voted against universal background checks for gun purchase. Now, the next Osama bin Laden or Adolf Hitler can walk into any gun show and buy an assault weapon with high capacity magazines.
Can't blame that on the messenger.
