Do you guys wear your tin-foil hats when you drive, or does the CF roof keep the black helicopters from recording your thoughts?

I thought this was a CAR forum.....

The USA is the only country on the planet that is not making the most of its natural resources which leaves it no other choice but to send the wealth to other countries that are smart enough to benefit from the natural resources hand Mother Nature has dealt them.

Same thing with cars. This has nothing to do with efficiency to them. It has to do with fairness. It's unfair that you should be able to drive such an ostentatious car while others don't have food, don't have a house, don't have a mother, whatever. These people have to ride a bus. Have you no guilt! You need to be punished for your lavish choices and so you will be taxed into a bus.

Go ahead and try being more efficient. They are relentless and will simply up the requirements and/or the tax.

I'm lucky enough to afford an M3 and the gas, too. I love it not only for it's performance but for the statement it makes. My license plate frame might soon say "Gas Guzzling Hotrod."


Yes, it's about absolute control; Orwellian style.

You hit the nail on the head! The socialist utopia is no longer a dream to them.
