Commuters need more "Quality Time"

It should not be convenient or easy to drive home if you live in the suburbs. You should have to sit in your car for long periods to make up for all the pollution you are selfishly creating coming back and forth far distances every day just because you wanted to live out there. Its like "time out" for adults who make bad stewardship of the earth choices. I propose speed bumps every 25 feet outside the city parameter or pedestrian crossing every 10.

My thoughts on Prejudice

Anyone who is prejudice is that way because they know they have faults. They just need to feel better about themselves by putting someone below them on some screwed-up hierarchy. Therefore, prejudice is a reflection of the prejudiced person's self-loathing. Knowing this makes me feel really bad about openly demeaning the Rangers, yet I can't help myself.

Libertarians - I like the concept

I really like the idea of being a Libertarian. Other than the fact that I want the FDA to test all my drugs. And I want my food tested for safety. And I don't want everyone to have the right to have a gun. And some people cannot be trusted with money and/or power and must be regulated, like polluting industries. And worker's safety, I'm a big fan of that. And the rich should be taxed at a higher rate than the poor. But other than, I'm a Libertarian.
