Once again, here's another installment.What is with the culture in this country of whenever something goes wrong, we always look for someone or something to blame? No one ever looks at themselves as the cause for problems. Let me tell you something. Most of the time, it's YOUR fault something has happened. I'm not saying others may not have caused something bad, but the majority of the time, yea, it's you.
Let's take this insanely high oil prices that's going on right now. When you ask anyone why this is happening, I bet some of the answers you get will be related to global world demand, not enough supplies, or commodity traders driving the price up.
Why is it that very few of you will say that it's becasue of our fault in the decisions that we've made in last few decades? The technology for electrical cars has been around for decades, though not a sophicated as it's needed today, it was there. I mean come on, Henry Ford's wife's car was all electric. Yes, they had something back then. Yes, the oil companies have kept those technology from coming out. Yes, the government has not pushed for this, but all that is because you didn't care. You made conservation and alternative fuels four letter words. You never noticed the problem or cared much because oil was cheap. It's your damn fault.
I suggest watching the documentary 'Who killed the electrical car'. It has very interesting information about the electrical car and why we're in the spot we are today.
Let's say that's not your fault. You weren't around back then. Ok, so how about this. If you bought an automobile in the last 5 years, and you spent more than $25K, if your car does not get more than 35 mpg, then yes, you're part of the problem. Let's not talk about the people that has to buy specific cars or trucks for work or businesses, that doesn't count. That is also probably just 5% of car sales.
Most of you do not need the car that you have. Do you really need to upgrade to a giant SUV because you have 1 child? Some of you buy SUV cause you think they're cool and large, or a sport car because you want to go fast (even though you're stuck in traffic most of the time like the rest of us. Great use of that engine buddy). Don't you people EVER compain about how much gas prices are. It is your fault. You and your stupid decision making skills.
You kept demand bigger cars instead of more fuel efficient cars. I mean seriously people, the Hummer? Really? Y'all thought that was a good idea? Who the hell are you invading driving that thing? When you're driving it around town getting 10 mpg, it makes you look like a douch with a small penis.Here's another something you need to consider. Sure, we all drive faster than the speed limit, but so many of you drive much faster than you should. You think it's a damn NASCAR race out there. You race to the red light, you swerve around on the highway, you seem to have an uncontrollably heavy right foot. All this burns more gas than is necessary. All this is your fault.
Take a look at yourselves, are you guilty of these behaviors? Do you rather bitch and find someone to blame rather than change your own behavior? I think most of you rather bitch than change your own behavior. That's the problem. That's why we are where we are today.
Now, instead of wanting to make a change in your own life, you're looking elsewhere like offshore drilling and drilling in Alaska to get your fix of bad behavior. You dumb fucks. This is not going to help lower the gas prices anytime soon. It will take at least 10 years for any oil comes out of those places. Instead, you could change your behavior the next time you get in your car, and that will have an immediate impact on the demand for oil. That is what will drive the price down.
Before you bitch about the gas prices, look in the mirror. It's probably your fault. You're probably part of the problem. The sooner you realize this, the sooner we can find a real solution.
