    Hey, I'm a liberal.
    hey 'liberal'...if you guys just invest your own dollars in the green industry we wont have to worry about the tax dollars!

    Oh, no! We can't let that happen. That would mean that the market would set the pace and so far, the market has said, "uh, noooooo!", to all this green bull****.

    But it's so much more effective if we tax everyone!

    I wish someone would tell the people at Whole Foods that. Maybe then I could go grocery shopping without fighting over the last of the organic arugula!

    Ya think so? Cuz...while it may be spreading the pain...I dont really see it as being very effective. Solar panels (and especially storage batteries) have been in the process of being developed since the 60's. Hybrids are looking more and more like a flash in the pan than the next big thing...and I know its just me...but I simply dont have a whole lot of confidence in ANYTHING the fed gets its paws into.

    BTW...I was tweakin at ya, not picking a fight...Im mellowing in my old age!

    You'd think if there was that large a demand their marketing people would do a better job of purchasing. If its anything like our local grown market, they have the occasional run on a given product but they end up throwing out more 'organics' than they sell.

    I know. And I was mostly....tweakin at ya too. I do thank you for your tax dollars though!

    I do think sometimes the government needs to protect us from the market. My biggest worry right now is our dependence on oil. It's not going to last forever. And I don't trust the market to provide a solution quickly enough. If the government can plan ahead and come up with some feasible alternatives through subsidies or what have you, I'm down with that.

    I've been in grocery stores like that. I currently live in a fairly liberal area though with a lot of disposable income. Whole Foods does well.

    I am going to invest in most of that stuff... my next car will be a fuel efficient hybrid. I have more research to do (model, cost, etc).. but some areas where I live, that stuff is really popular so it might depend on your location.

    My friend lives in Portland, and that is the way it is there... They are really big into green energy too
