Inauguration War against the Automobile

Authorities to Americans wanting to visit the nation’s capital for President-elect Obama’s inauguration: DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

A Washington Post blog reports that draconian, police-state prohibitions on automobiles on bridges and other routes into Washington, D.C., are planned for Jan. 20. (The D.C. Examiner also has an article on the nightmarish gridlock that authorities intend to impose on the Washington area.)

So, if you want to visit here for the festivities and you drive a car, drop dead, authorities say. Get used to this kind of treatment. The new Congress and the incoming administration are going to do what they can to force you to stop driving your car.
