You might live in a snowy climate....

If the guy behind you at the gas station is driving a snow mobile.
The Prius gets better mileage however.

and I forgot to mention..

On our property we have a pine tree grove with lots of trees which are being crowded out. So one year I decided to prune a couple  for our Christmas trees. One of the trees was really thin and had a crooked trunk and my family made fun of me for bringing home a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

....Well Merry Christmas Charlie Brown... and everyone is still calling me SIR..Good Grief...

The solution to the budget crisis

No, the big mac is not the solution to the budget crisis, eliminating it is. Health care accounts for 21% of the federal budget. This is going to continue to grow in the coming years. I heard a startling statistic the other day. In the not so distance future 1 in 2 Americans will have diabetes or pre-diabetes.  What can we do? We can stop eating fast food for one thing, then get off your butts and exercise for another. I believe that fast food is so damaging to our health that packages should carry warning labels like cigarettes. 

 This label says "The product you are about to enjoy is extremely harmful if swallowed."  The packaging should also contain pictures of what will happen to you if you eat the food, like the one below. This is similar to the diseased lung pictures on cigarettes (Oh those are only Canadian cigarettes).

Who could enforce such a campaign, the food and drug administration, the same entity which allows cigarettes to continue to be sold. I guess if it kills you quickly its bad, but if it kills you slowly wasting taxpayer money in the process, its OK.
