You've never heard of auto emissions testing?

Does auto-emissions testing have anything to do with Global Warming?

In the late 1990's, it was in the news as being just around the corner in my area, the greater Cincinnati area.

Yeah, wasn't that before all this Global Warming stuff?

The newspaper editors found out how much fun it was to sit in line and hand over $20 for a useless test, and they didn't like it!

Well that's weird, they don't charge me for emissions testing in Illinois. I'm gonna look that up.

quote:
EMISSIONS TESTING FEES
A motorist may receive up to three free tests within a 365 day period. The fourth test, and for the ones thereafter, the motorist will be charged $18 for the test. Only one free passing test is permitted in a 365 day period.

So, really, its free the first three times in one year.

But really, $20?

I gotta pay $99 every year for registration. And like $60 every month for insurance.

And that's nothing compared to the standard operational costs, like gas and fluids and filters and brakes and tires.

Are you really complaining about something that amounts to a fraction of a percent of your total car costs? Despite the fact that it doesn't even really cost you anything to begin with...

If that is the case, the debate is far from over.

Okay, so all the scientists that are saying otherwise...

Do you think they are ignorant, or do you think they are lying?

They have a reason to lie, the oldest reason in the world. Power and money.

How do you know that those guys aren't the ones who are lying?

Expenditures on global warming studies, by the U.S. and much of the world, is all over the internet. It's a big business.

Yeah but if it is real then it makes sense that people are spending money to stop it.

I was asking how you know that the people that are saying that the scientists are lying aren't the ones who are lying?

I trust the advocates of small government over advocates of big government. I find rich people who advocate small government to be more accountable for their mistakes than rich people who advocate big government. Corruption of course, makes it all less cut and dried than I wish it was, but the general rule still applies IMO.

So you don't know if the scientists are lying or not, you just trust more the people who are saying that they are.

Then when I asked "How will the successes of all these increases in government be measured?" - in message 104, he said this in message 106;

quote:
I see no increases in government.

Do you think that is ignorance, or do you think it's lying?

I don't know exactly what an "increase in government" is.

At face value, I'd assume it was adding another department or more employees but not just passing additional legislation.

It looks like you meant to say that passing another law is an increase in government and that jar does not think that is what an increase in government is.
