The solution to the energy price problem? Simple! Ban all registered democrats, commies and greens from owning any personal transportation vehicles and air conditioners as well as any light bulb with a higher than 40 wattage.
If that doesn't do the trick, turn them in to bio-fuel. For the good of Gaea.
Put yer stinkin' brain-dead carcasses where your mouths are and leave the rest of us alone.
I'm getting really tired of listening to people who have clearly never seen a city smaller than Chicago nattering on about how expensive gas is awesome because now we all have to walk or take mass transit. I grew up 15 miles from the nearest supermarket--who walks that far to get groceries for six people?? No one who wants any of it to be edible when they get it home, that's who.
Meanwhile, I have some family business to conduct in Podunksville this summer, and there's no bus service there from Milwaukee, which suits me fine because I like driving. Gas prices don't stop kids from being born and baptized...
