    Yes, you read that correctly. California's leadership has officially dove into the deep end of retard pool. That is probably the dumbest, most partisan thing I've ever heard state leaders do.

    California Won't Buy From Automakers Who Sided With Trump

    From the article-


    The new rules will also require the state agencies only to purchase electric or hybrid vehicles, California’s Department of General Services said in a statement on Friday.

    It's the state government of California that won't be buying vehicles from those manufacturers. They will still be sold to private buyers if they want them.

    And, I can see why they did it. Those automakers were in favor of reducing emissions requirements, while CA has been trying to make them stronger. And, to tell you the truth, considering the air quality around LA, it kinda makes sense.

    If any of you think that CA is going to ban all cars from being sold, even to private buyers, you're nuts. And, there are lots of times that various government agencies decide to either do or not do business with a company. Going against what the state wants is one of them.

    That's pretty retarded of them, considering how many times their power grid has been shut off the last month or so.
