Gas Prices

With gas prices skyrocketing, when in the world are the car manufacturers introduce cars that give decent gas mileage? By 'decent', I don't mean a
promised 30 mpg, but 50 or 60 mpg. We all know it can be done. But instead, I keep seeing ads on TV for SUV's and sports cars that have 300+ horsepower or out-accelerate a SAAB jet. How far out of touch with consumers are those ads? Of course, it really takes the politicians pushing the oil companies' hands out of their pockets, so how realistic is my hope of relaxing government regulations on emissions and safety to allow more fuel efficiency? In Europe, they have cars that get much better mileage and still have good performance. Countries like Germany and France are VERY 'green' oriented, so we should be able to live with their standards. Over half of their cars are diesels, also, so why not have them here? Regulations....... Speaking of Europe, I was on CNN's website and looked up worldwide gas prices. I was amazed to see that gas prices in France and Germany are STILL about $5.40 a gallon, which is what they were the last time I was there two years ago! While our prices have more than doubled in that time period, their prices have stabilized. How can that be unless we are really being gouged? This brings us back, once again, to politicians allowing such things to happen. Even more amazing is that gas in Puerto Rico is only $1.80 a gallon! Gas in Venezuala is $0.12 per gallon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How do we stop this gouging and get fuel efficient cars????? We are basically screwed because we have absolutely no say in the situation. Hyundai probably has the cars we need but aren't allowed to introduce them.

Did an informal survey of SUV drivers yesterday. Most did not have a penis. I will leave the envy part to him. ;-)
Amazing number of non white folks driving SUV's around here. Seems like the right vehicle for driving the unplowed side streets in the city and/or hauling the aspiring football/basketball sized kids.

Are you an idiot when it comes to legitimate samples in statistics? You do not count entries in the sample population that do not correspond with a penis. Therefore, you do not count females in the sample population. The MALES who drive the SUVs are by in majority, the cuckold neo-communist RINO Bush-bots. My own informal survey of the GOP housewives I've slept with states that. However, my evidence is only anecdotal, and is not a scientific survey.

I've hardly seen a niglet or spicola drive an SUV around where I've been. I wonder where you're at?
My prediction: you will glibly reply to my racial comments to evade the assertion. Don't feel bad. Usenet stupidity mandates you do.
Yours In Christ, John

just counted the number of SUV drivers. Mstly not male. Given the local politics, mostly Democrats.

Upstate NY, city doesn't matter. Trend is accross the state. BTW, comment about why is also from past surveys of friends/customers/co-workers. Big wheels on SUV's handle potholes and unplowed side streets better. Big kids take up a lot of room even without their "stuff".

About as right as you were about the rest.

You whole troll is offensive and stupid, but I suppose you knew that when you wrote it.

Asshole...I told you. Eliminate females from the sample population. You are left with more than enough cuckolds and small penis males in the population. "Small penis" also implies males who are not comfortable with their own penis which may be of adequate size. What you WON'T find, from the wives I've banged, is that their penises are never large.

Then samples from suburbs matters more. Down here in the south, there are wayyyyyyy too many SUV drivers for the pleasant weather we have. They're just stupid rednecks anyway. So, maybe my presumption only applies to NC residents.

Fuck you.

Gee, John, every one of your posts has something to do with sex in one way or another. It might be time for you to get some.
And what exactly is a militant vegetarian? Do you go out and hunt and kill vegetables? Wouldn't that be in violation of the teachings of Christ?

I think Christ would have a serious problem with you. In fact, I am pretty sure of it.
As for the militant discussion, your words are violent. One can only infer that your actions would be similar. You can define militant however you want. I was applying the definition to you and your Internet personality.
My friends consider me a conservative also, but I also try to keep an open mind when it comes to my fellow Americans.

I am a Christian, and the fact that you believe that He would have a problem with my attitude shows just how unChristian you are.

The definition is from an english ontology program obtainable from Princeton University's website. You can read it if you wish instead of making geeky inferences.

I am trying to save America. If you opened your ears and listened to real Americans like Dr. Savage, I'm sure you'll understand the militant part. Outrage spawns revolution, and there are more of us everyday.
Revolution will stop the mexican invasion force. Revolution will stop the IRS and initiate the fair tax. Revolution will instigate a third party. The time is ripe for a new person to step forward, free of the shit that stains both Ds and Rs. This person will at minimum throw off the election for one of the two parties. Perhaps the Rs this time, like Perot did?

Dude, this is usenet. Do you think I give a shit about your thoughts? You should know that no one tells the truth on these newsgroups.
So, fuck you! :)

This doesn't even rate a 1 on the troll-o-meter scale. And your sample size of zero isn't statistically significant.

Well Matt my friend Indicate what kinda BULLSHIT your gonna post and then MOST OF US can avoid it and wont have to read it...... It's amusing at most and very surprising that your mommy lets you talk like that..I would expect more from a person who sometimes has very good responces to most questions and I am very surprised that you let yourself stup this low as too argue with a moron like Mr. Smith whom is nothing but a troll and needs his mouth washed out with a good portion of lye soap. As far as I can see this has nothing to do with the newsgroup and your just adding fuel to Mr. Bad Mouths fire.

Well, I agree with most of what you write above, however, I greatly resent you trying to tell me or anyone else here which posts we may or may not reply to. It is a free country (well mostly anyway) and if you don't like that, then that is simply too bad. I'll reply to whom I wish, when I wish.
