    Supply and demand determines the nature of the property you own, such as whether or not you own a fuel efficiency vehicle, or care about the environment. The government doesn't force you to do anything. If a green marketing is opening up, it's because manufacturers think it's a good idea.

    There is nothing infringing your freedoms to buy whatever you want or pursue happiness, so enough with the mundane exaggerations already.

    The government doesn't have the right to control the market in such a manner that goods that are in demand aren't available. Doing so would violate my right to own property.

    No it doesn't. In most cases you are allowed as much as you can use because the supply out weighs the demand, you are just charged for the more you use. This isn't always the case in certain situations.

    Average global temps haven't increased since 1998. Stop living in denial.

    What an absurd comparison.

    A WORLD WAR vs. a one degree rise in global temps over a hundred years. Yea, totally comparable...

    Are you sure? Some people think San Diego is city power because it's through San Diego Gas & Electric. The company is actually a child of Sempra Energy, a publicly traded company.

    That wasn't the comparison being made...

    You live in Libbo Land, so nothing surprises me about what happens out there.

    I don't have a choice. Lafayette Utilities System is the only company that has rights to this area. They buy their juice from SLEMCO, then mark it up and sell it to me.

    Great rebuttal. Maybe we can go play kickball at recess.
