    I heard Iran has oil, and they are developing nukes too!

    Seriously - if we took that $1/2 trillion we are pouring into the whole in the middle of the dessert and put it into alternative fuels, we might be seeing the fruits of that research now.  Instead, we are allowing Europe and China to get the jump on us for next generation of energy sources.

      But then sissie green smelly hippies will get all the money. We Murkans don't do sissy stuff like huggin trees, switching to wussy electric cars or farming the wind. </snark>

      Seriously though, I swear half our problems in this country come from idiotic macho notions of what is and isn't manly. I am SO sick of hearing how this or that co-worker could never buy an electric car because it wouldn't have any loud VROOM VROOM sounds. Give me a break.

        I just assume any posturing macho dude has erectile dysfunction and is overcompensating.

          But I've found that pointing that fact out to them, that naked pointless agression speaks to me of childishness and overcompensation for insecurities, doesn't seem to help. Thankfully I am proficient in Aikido (a non violent martial art which I think every man should/could learn, but most won't).
