    Regardless, what were you doing that necessitated you riding around in a car with "a lesbian photographer from Colorado and a Belgian lady"?
    Nope, pretty sure you got me mixed up with someone else.... although I do think welfare is a sham. Make people work for a living.

    I contracted the ladies to help me do an ad campaign. In spite of their horrific political views, both women are very talented in the advertising industry and, if it'll make me a buck, I'd spend a week living in an igloo.

    So who did you nail first, the lady from Belgium or the lesbian from Colorado? Most men would have agreed with Eva Braun to get a blow job. You? No. You want to level up on politics. Brilliant.
    They're both in their 50's. I'm in my 30's.

    Yeah let's replace every tractor in Africa with an electric version.... because that's totally feasible. Any other bright ideas? Should we give everyone there a flatscreen too?

    Nothing is "free." If you're talking about compost for large-scale production, you still need to transport it, store it, and apply it, and unless the farmer is generating his own compost he still has to pay for it.

    What's your point?

    No, there are a variety of practices (no-till, green fertilizer, cover cropping, intensive rotaional grazing etc) which either eliminate those concerns or greatly reduces them and if by "large scale production" you're referring to huge corporate farms, then we don't need them.

    One reason why we "liberals" follow Europe is that they are simply ahead of us, as well they should be ,,
    why should they be ahead of us on things like this? If we're always going to follow, we may as well at least try not to be 20 freaking years behind, don't ya think?

    or if the green party takes over....

    Neither.

    It's certainly not our responsibility to provide food and energy to other countries. If the population of India or China is too large to support itself, that's their problem, not ours. That's not to say we shouldn't help if we're able to and it doesn't impose an undue burden on us, but it's not our responsibility to feed them.

    However, I also don't think we should allow the environmentalist lobby to stand in the way of things like genetically modified foods, which do a lot of good for the world.

    Alternative energy is something we should be embracing, but we should be smart about it. It should be a gradual transition away from fossil fuels, not an abrupt one.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
