In Response To: MY very own (not recycled) idea (Sandi Moses)
Problem is that the American people don't want a slow fix nor do they want have to put up with anything that even remotely resembles, in their own minds) "suffering".
- Driving slower
- Not being able to do everything one wants to do in a small amount of time allotted
- Buying less
- driving less
- getting rid of SUVs that are used in place of a minivan (which gets better mileage)
And on and on and on.
The American people could have the solution to world hunger right under their nose and they would pretend it's not even there if it involves any, even a very small amount, of "suffering" on their part.
Americans have been taught over many decades that the time to live is now and to do "whatever makes you feel good and happy" regardless of the long term negative consequences it may have on themselves or others.
When you take "God", ethics, morals, sense of responsibility, self control, and self accountability out of the picture AND you DO NOT have a dictatorship to tell the people what to do, then you get what we have in America. Just a bunch of fearless people self absorbed in themselves and in the "here and now" engaging in horrific unbridled consumption and constant pleasure seeking.
America deserves everything coming to it all the way form high gas prices to being run by an absolute dictatorship.
We want everything for nothing. We want lower gas prices but we are unwilling to lower our own gas bills by doing such simple things as NOT speeding. We want everyone to do everything for us and we do not want to "suffer" in the process. We are willing to take but we are not willing to provide for ourselves unless we absolutely have to.
America will just keep on rushing around and not do what needs to be done until we are put in a position that the only thing we can do is to do those things we should have been doing all along - the things that cause us to "suffer" even just a little bit. But once it gets to that point it won't be just a little suffering, it will be A LOT of suffering. And by that time it may be too late to reverse any horrible situation we may have gotten ourselves into.
Sound familiar? It should. Think "teenagers". Teenagers live exactly like I have described above. I have said it for years and years and I will say it again and again. If the world's countries can be analogized with human life stages, America is the world's ill-parented teenager going out nights drinking and doing drugs to the limit without a care in the world, without regard for their futures and the long term effects of their actions today, and waiting until the last minute to do everything that needed to be done yesterday but only now it must be done with a pounding hangover. And when it is done it will be done half-assed, if at all, and the results will be pathetic and even disastrous if there is a result at all.
The only one to blame for high gas prices and for any American problem we face is the American people themselves. This is a country for the people and by the people (or so it is supposed to be). So if the people do not "do it" or if the people "do it" the wrong way, the people all suffer and no one else is to blame but the Americans people themselves.
Sure I know that we do not all live this way, but enough of us do and it makes us all suffer, regardless if we want to or not.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
