If the Feds had any balls at all,
they'd mandate 100cu" gas engines,
and 100cu" diesels.

There's no reason that Momma needs a
four-ton SUV to haul around her 100 pound ass !
Don't matter how much ethanol you grow,
as long as they keep selling 12mpg Hummers !!
As long as there are large trucks on the road and the law of physics applies
I think Mom needs a large truck to keep her children safe on the roads. Why
complain about gas mileage when the roads are saturated with tractor
trailers moving corperate goods from overseas all across america. Insted of
making them here in several central locations. If we want to save gas we

Now there's a dumb-ass arguement !
Maybe we should get Mom a tractor-trailer....
a Bradley... or a Brinks truck for "safety".
How 'bout a Greyhound bus ??
As for the plethora of tractor trailers on the road,
the US let its rail system go to hell.
Unfortunately, tractor-trailer is the only way to get
goods from A to B.....
Of course, we could take the $$ we spend in Iraq in 1 week,
and probably fund an efficient rail transport system.
