We need to end petroleum. Phoenix motor company in Ontario, California is building a fleet of electrics that do 95 mph carrying five passengers and a full load, their batteries are rated 250,000 miles/+12 years. We can stop petroleum by eating vegetarian - I eat less than eight ounces a month, or six pounds a year.

And we can do the obvious, reduce consumption by reducing capita. How many children do you have? I have no children and plan on one child and adoption.

We must vote the Democrats and Republicans out and end this madness. The Constitution, the Green and the Libertarian parties oppose the war. We are partly to blame - if Al Gore had decided to run with Ralph Nader instead of against him we wouldn't be in this mess. Or have you forgotten Joe Lieberman now campaigning for the other side.

Bush vows to veto everything that lands on his desk. Why? Because he says that it doesn't fit into his budget, and we can't be spending recklessly, now can we. I wonder how many decades it will take to undo the damage this administration has imposed on us - and the world.
