    Quite simply the reason we don't change is because we don't want to. Really that's it. And I am not saying the government doesn't want us to. Or the GOP or any other group. I am talking about the majority of Americans. It is a very small minority that wants to change how Americans measure things. The vast majority like how it is. Most are comfortable with it. It is the will of the people of the United States.

    Another indication that it because of Conservatives that we can't have nice things.
    We have converted to the metric the Olympics. Even when we host the son of bitch.
    We won't force Usain Bolt to run a hundred yard dash. Other than that, screw the rest of the world.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.
