    your link is broken, and whatever it says will not measure up to "nationwide vandalism"....and yes, you do exaggerate, either that or you lie, take your pick.
    I wonder if those same left wing vigilantes will target the governors of New York and Massachusetts for also realizing that union costs and spending are bankrupting their states.

    I don't believe that it will ever be a cure-all, it will merely work in conjunction with other means to reduce our oil consumption. Mass transit will never meet the needs of everyone, but the more people we can move on the same amount of fuel, the less we will have to depend on fossil fuels.

    Mass transit becomes supplemental the moment it is built.

    Opponents keep trying to point out that mass transit isn't perfect. I agree, it isn't, but the further we get away from transportation that carries one person 15 miles on one gallon of fuel the better our fuel future will be. It matters not if that transportation is a train, bus, motorcycle, high mileage vehicle, carpool, bicycle.

    Something like that anyway. I'm sick of a president who's idea of improving things is cramming us into socialized transportation, or onto bicycles. Our President should have bigger dreams than that for the country.
    Naiive.....you want what you want regardless of costs to others.....oil companies are subsidized to the tune of $4 billion, with taxpayer dollars, while they make many more billions in profit, per quarter.
    Oh, and soldiers die....for oil.

    .
    You are totally clueless and just another revisionist rewriting history. Jimmy Carter inherited high gas prices and inflation from Nixon/Ford. Remember the Arab oil embargo during Nixon's term causing gas prices to quadruple and Nixon's famous wage and price freeze to combat inflation that actually made inflation worse? Jimmy Carter came up with a comprehensive energy policy that Reagan instantly scrapped when oil company profits started to suffer. These are facts that ignorant right wingers always ignore.

    actually yes, in fact, it is vandalism to disfigure or mar property that does not belong to you. as for the link?

    a google search away. even the unions are ("officially") disavowing these guys.

    I guess you didn't get very far in reading the snopes article, because it said...
    Despite the claim that money committed to Petrobras is "taxpayer dollars," Ex-Im notes that "the vast majority of our financing consists of guarantees of loans made by commercial lenders," that "the bank is self-sustaining and does not receive any appropriated funds from Congress," and that "the bank's activities do not cost the taxpayer a dime."

    That's one of the funniest lines I've seen in awhile, thanks Barb.

    I believe the free market goes into action when something is wanted/needed/ and is profitable.
    Mass transit is none of those things in most of the country.
    What do you have against people being free to walk out of their homes, pull the car out of their garage and drive to their destination, independent of socialized transportation?
