Misguided? No, just different.

Environmental Republican thinks I'm misguided (and affable..wow!), but I just think we have two different views on the world. I understand the thinking behind being able to afford and then subsequently purchase your H2 Hummer (while looking like a complete moron with a small penis) and drive around getting 8 miles to the gallon (or whatever ridiculous number it is), I just feel that Americans should be more responsible world citizens when it comes to energy conservation. He is somewhat misguided on my choice of cars though...I drive around in my small car all the time, for work, play and everything in between. The only time I've used otherwise was if I had to transport something that couldn't fit in my car.
I just feel that Americans (and America can do more). I don't think its a Republican/Democrat thing, I feel its a responsibility thing. We should be on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to energy conservation, whether 10 years ago with Clinton (can't get through that conservative post without a little Clinton criticism) or Bush or anyone else. We should be fostering this kind of development--not giving tax breaks to companies for purchasing SUVs. I do applaud the tax breaks for individuals for purchasing hybrid cars, I just feel that we could be doing more. And by more, I don't mean drilling in ANWR. That is not a solution to the problem.

So every one that owns a Hummer is hung like a fly? (for the record, I don't own one and won't because I see no reason to spend $60,000 on anything but a down payment on a house).

BTW, you are affable, you know I've always thought that.
