I drive a small car and try to combine as many of my errands into a single trip.  Still, the 40 miles to and from work that I drive every day puts me through about 17 gallons a week.  Moving closer to work and getting a different job are not viable options.  The mass transit system would take about 2 1/2 hours to get to work, and a similar amount of time to get home.

Even trying to be environmentally conscious, the deck is not stacked in favor of everyone.

I agree that being wasteful is not a viable solution.  But I also don't think that the majority of people are consciously being wasteful.  And the government doesn't need to force those that are unconsciously being wasteful to stop it.  Because they would just end up punishing those that are being responsible.

Okay, if personal freedom is tantamount to you, I bet you are just fine with abortions, right?

Not one it comes to murdering babies.

Nice try.

 You have no idea that electricity comes from oil and that gas comes from oil?

 Your system has been tried many times before and didn't work.

Also anything that anyone needs to do can bee done over the internet so why are you pro any travel?

Also why are you in such a hurry to take away freedom and yet you will not at least try drilling for oil.

Who made you a judge to decide what is wasteful and what is not?

I still see you talking about people who don't live like you as if they are sub human and need you to think for them.

My family has to Drive in to town once week to recycle,and in the mean time one room of our house is always full of trash wait to be taken their so i am not against conserving.

Also who would you say gets to decided if I am wasteful and what should happen to me in that case?

I am not ranting I am asking honest questions about the system you are putting forward based on what I have seen happen with similar systems in the past.

I am also anti death penalty except in the case of dictators that we can't risk coming to power again or scaring people by making them think they can return to power.

I don't believe in killing anyone.

I really dislike any commercial where it shows "real" people "singing" a business's jingle and laughing when they sing off key.  The implied message of the commercial being "See?  Our jingle is so popular that people are willing to humiliate themselves on camera singing it!" while missing the fact that the jingle is annoying.

There's one where they were talking about how lesser toilet paper brands leave pieces of TP behind after you wipe. Of course this concept was given the visual aid of a bear brushing flakes of TP off his big hairy ass. Ew?
