Newsflash, Folks: Being "Green" and "Global Warming" are both products. Thats all. Its about selling products and control. Thats it.

Look at the EPA. They do more harm than good. What are they acomplishing? Control. Thats it.

What have hybrid cars brought us other than arrogant hippies? $45,000 Cars? Look at the carbon they create, through electricity, (coal) batteries, plant manufacture, and the physical importation of them on ships?

But yet they all cruise around in their limos and suvs. I wanna see obama and all of the other people who think that electric cars and hybrids are the answer to drive them and only them. Maybe then they will see what a crock they are.

Obama and his cronies, and overall politicians are the worst guzzlers of them all. I will dig out that report that stated how bad this administration was on consumption.

And to remark on the thread in particular, this was a no brainer! They are all hypocrits. I wanna see all of them ride around in these aluminum cans. Exactly as the other gentlemen put it, this is product they wanna sell, cause they see big money in it. What a friggin farse.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
