Happy Flag Day!

Everyone please stand, place your right hand over your heart, and say it out loud with me...
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Now, that felt good, didn't it?

Be An Environmentalist! Buy A Hummer!

Rush mentioned this article today on his show... (transcript here...)

From The Recorder Online...

Prius Outdoes Hummer in Environmental Damage
By Chris Demorro

"The Toyota Prius has become the flagship car for those in our society so environmentally conscious that they are willing to spend a premium to show the world how much they care. Unfortunately for them, their ultimate ‘green car’ is the source of some of the worst pollution in North America; it takes more combined energy per Prius to produce than a Hummer...

"Building a Toyota Prius causes more environmental damage than a Hummer that is on the road for three times longer than a Prius. As already noted, the Prius is partly driven by a battery which contains nickel. The nickel is mined and smelted at a plant in Sudbury, Ontario. This plant has caused so much environmental damage to the surrounding environment that NASA has used the ‘dead zone’ around the plant to test moon rovers. The area around the plant is devoid of any life for miles...

Dubbed the Superstack, the plague-factory has spread sulfur dioxide across northern Ontario, becoming every environmentalist’s nightmare..."

Read the whole article. It's very enlightening.

It goes on to explain that the Prius will not last long enough for you to EVER realize any savings on Gasoline because with a projected 100,000 mile lifespan, you will never offset the added cost of a Hybrid over a conventional internal-combustion engine powered car.

What they leave out of the story is the fact that a used car that has already been built causes absolutely no additional incidental Environmental damage. When you objectively look at pure economics, it is way cheaper and more Environmentally sound to buy and drive a four year old Cadillac than to buy a new Prius. (Not to mention a lot more comfortable.)

(Use your heads, people...)

Do you really want to preserve the Environment?

Are you really interested in the discovery of Alternative Energy Sources and a reduction of our dependence on Foriegn Oil, and Fossil Fuels?

Then Use Oil.

Burn Gasoline. As much as you can, as often as you can.

As a matter of fact, stop reading this right now, and just go drive around the block for an hour or two. (In the biggest, longest, most comfortable Gas-Hog you can find.)

The sooner all the Oil is all gone and there is absolutely no more Gasoline to be had anywhere in the World, the sooner the Alternatives will appear.

And that is the only way it will ever happen.

Attempts at Conservation only prolong our misery, and postpone the inevitable.

So if you are really serious about saving the Environment from the Evils of Fossil Fuels, do your part to get rid of them, once and for all.

It's the least you can do!
