Signs Of The Future

There’s been a new law passed. While we’ve been busy, with our attention focused to the racist tweets of the president and his fight with the democrats and anyone else he feels like being pissed at, the man has quietly signed into legislation a new law that governs, from here forward, the way we will be driving.
