First I must tell you that I’m a little greener than most people where I can make changes to do so. By that I mean, if there’s fiscal incentive for me, I’ll do it. Thus far I don’t own a vehicle although its looking like thats going to have to change sooner than later.
Of course the enviro-nut (aka cheapskate) in me wants to take said vehicle, rip out the engine and plunk in some batteries, power regulators and electric motors. After all, most of my commutes are everything is up for bid. And of course they’re using the ruse that this is for the schools, particularly after that odious bit of legislation called the No Child Left Behind Act. If anything the act leaves more kids behind than ever before.
It’s too bad that it took the voters of this country this long to put a Democratic majority in the congress, because if we’d done this say in 2002 or so they’d have impeached the sons of bitches by now. While I’m on the subject, could Hillary Clinton please drop out of the race now? She’s damaged goods and would hurt the party more than help it.
