Joe Biden is trying to ban jokes now and you won’t believe just how far he is willing to go

Jan 22, 2024

It seems the Biden administration will go to almost any lengths to ruin the lives of the American people.

It’s not bad enough they have destroyed the economy and put the nation on the brink of World War III.

Now Joe Biden is trying to ban jokes and you won’t believe just how far he is willing to go.

The U.S. Federal Highway Administration has given states two years to implement all the changes outlined in its new 1,100-page manual, including rules that dictate the messages on electronic highway signs and other traffic control devices. 

This sick Biden joke is on us

Biden Administration officials say overhead electronic signs with obscure meanings, references to pop culture or even those intended to be funny will be banned starting in 2026. 

They claim the humorous signs can be misunderstood or distracting to drivers.

The agency, which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, said signs should be “simple, direct, brief, legible and clear” and only be used for important information.

Under the new rules, signs may only display things that warn drivers of crashes ahead, bad weather conditions, and traffic delays. 

Of course, they will continue to allow reminders to wear seatbelts, and warnings about the dangers of speeding, or warnings against driving impaired.

Among the signs that will now be banned by Biden are messages such as the one in Massachusetts reading “Use Yah Blinkah” or Ohio’s “Visiting in-laws? Slow down, get there late,” “Don’t drive Star Spangled Hammered” from Pennsylvania, or “Hocus pocus, drive with focus” from New Jersey, and Arizona’s “Hands on the wheel, not your meal.”

An end to the funniest sign contest

Arizona currently has more than 300 electronic signs lighting up over its highways. 

And for the last seven years, the Arizona Department of Transportation has conducted a contest to find the funniest and most creative messages.

Under the contest rules anyone can submit ideas, and last year alone they received more than 3,700 entries.

The winners last year were “Seat belts always pass a vibe check” and “I’m just a sign asking drivers to use turn signals.”

State Representative David Cook (R-Globe) said, “The humor part of it, we kind of like. I think in Arizona the majority of us do, if not all of us.”

He also said he didn’t understand the fuss or why the federal government wanted to ban the signs.

“Why are you trying to have the federal government come in and tell us what we can do in our own state? Prime example that the federal government is not focusing on what they need to be.”

Representative Cook is exactly right and this move by the Biden administration is just one more example of them focusing on a solution to something that isn’t even a problem.

Meanwhile Americans are struggling to make ends meet and the border is wide open causing increasing crime and disease, a deadly fentanyl crisis, and the world grows ever closer to a world war.

And it shows the Left has no sense of humor.
