sorry, i have no need to pull a tree anywhere, ya goon.
also, i smoke seedless, braskis. seedy weed is for trailer park kids. and even if i were throwing roaches out on the interstate, they are completely bio-degradable.
sucks that you guys don't care about the environment. it IS what you depend on to live, you know. i guess you're part of the problem.
i don't think electric cars and hybrids are a bad idea, i just would like them to be an option and not shoved in my face. There should be at least another 5 years of R&D just on efficiency, right now they are no better than gas burners. The worst thing about them is pricing and low performance. Tesla has very fast and very efficient fully electric cars, but, they cost over $100,000. I am not saying all electric and hybrid cars should have supercar performance but i don't want a prius or volt either. Manufacturers should at least make them afffordable to the masses.

i agree.
but to get that kind of R&D, we need support from the masses. the dumber segments of this society eat up anything that resembles resistance to change, so it's important to show clear support for it. no one is going to force you to buy an electric car, so just get over that.
As long as the oil companies control the government i won't be forced to buy an electric or hybrid. Later, i say in 20 years, there may be no choice.

I know, i'm just on edge about it, the government wants everybody to make the switch and i wouldn't mind having a hybrid for the 60 miles a day i drive to work and back 5-6 days a week but i'm not ready to say bye to gas guzzling power houses, I am a car guy.

<quoted text>gas prices are not going back down, dumbass. get used to it. i hope it's worth it for your precious muscle car.

alternative energy sources will become more reliable when more R&D has been done, which will require the support of more american people to get the numbskulls in d.c. to approve the funding.

also, the environment called. it said thanks for being a jerk.
Oh, so the government should give money to corporations as long as it's doing things you agree with?

Yeah, whenever is good for you. I'm pretty flexible. I meant no ill will against you, just trying to gauge where my car sits as far as all the modifications.
As far as fuel efficient cars go, mines not the BEST, but by far not the worst.
I'll holler at you friday afternoon.
