    Re: $6 Gas = Empty Lineups

    I'll keep this short and let the film I linked do the talking. Only thing I will say is America only has 5% of the world's population, yet we consume 25% of the world's resources.

    BTW Anyone interested in starting a homstead, preferably with good surf, PM me. Serious replys only please.

    yo archy, this is an environmental terrorism brainwashing video...these people are no different than Al-Quada....blowing sh!t up ain't going to help, we already have enough nutjobs in this country, don't ya think?
    You want to go back to living in nature, start sleeping in the woods near your house, and tell me how much better it is than sleeping under a roof.

    If you don't want to read that whole article, check out the premise of it in the beginning and some points about how it could help with our financial crisis towards the bottom.

    We have more oil than you think, or some environmental groups want you to think. We just need to let people look for it and support the initiative more.

    It means getting off the financial and political grid, and living in a sustainable manner, in a sustainable enviornment.

    Homesteading has nothing to do with sleeping in the woods. It means to live in a sustainable way. I'm talking solar powered, heated house, with hot water. Growing your own food, and raising your own livestock. This whole American Dream idea is not very old. Suburbia is an experiment, and it's failing. Sure there is plenty of oil, but at what cost. Maybe its the picture of that funny baseball dude that makes me think your alright, but your living in a bubble. Most of America is living in a bubble. We don't see the wars, and devestated communities when we open our front door. This video is not brainwashing. It's reality. Have you been to West Virginia and Eastern Kentuckey lately? Whole mountain tops are gone from coal production. The once lush forrested mountians are piles of dust. How about Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Texas? They can light their tap water on fire from the effects of hydrofracking for natural gas. Been to Louisianna lately? Ask the fishermen how thier catch was this year compared to past years, and if they noticed anything strange about some of the fish? That's just oil and gas, and that's just in the U.S. What about tar sands and nuclear, and the rest of the world? Just cause it isn't happening in your back yard, does'nt mean it's not happening.

    I used to live in Colorado and lived in a house that had solar panels powering the hot water heater. In a city that is a mile high and gets 300+ days of sunshine per year a back up oil water heater was still needed. Alternative fuels such as wind and solar are great in theory, but today the technology isn't there for these energy sources to be sustainable and replace oil. There is a lot of oil on US soil, we shouldn't abanden green energy but for the sake of our economy go after the resources that we have. The more oil we produce here the less money we put in the pockets of angry jihadists that want to kill us
