    i think that there are two many banks in my area. In the last year land fields were cleared to build 5 banks that you can almost walk to and from each one .

    Why don't we blame him for Teddy Kennedy not being able to navigate that bridge.
    I do agree that the end will be caused by just too many people on this earth...maybe we can blame that on Bush.

    This is actually quite a humerous thread. Why don't people stop breeding? Shrug, ask your mother and father that, I mean, you sure wern't an immaculate conception. So you my friend are part of the "problem" as you see it. Secondly, since when is a developer responsible for "adding" or improving a school system. That is the state and counties job. What the develeper IS doing is creating new homes in the county, which people will BUY (follow me on this one) in which people will pay TAXES on, which could ultimatly go to improving the school or whatever your local politics deem fit. It also draws more sales into the local region (gas, grocerys etc..) which also fuels the local economy.

    Come on people, this is a double-edged sword here. Sure, we like to moan about certain polocies that our govn't makes. Tree huggers went balistic when Bush talked about opening up the Alaskan Oil reserves. Now, EVERYONE is going balistic about the gas prices. Sure, lets blame it on the price fixation of Opec, but that has nothing to do with it. We have legislated ourselves to death in this country and it is starting to catch up with us.
    Look at Cali's energy crisis. It is 100% there own fault. They forced new environmental standards on energy producers to the point that it was easier to shut the plant down than to make the appropriate changes. Now they are buying energy from 3 states away, and part of there energy comes from Hydro-electricity (which is producing about 30% less electricity this year because of climate issues)

    Sure, the overboard legislation that expects big business to make extreme changes within a year look good on paper, but the same exact people that "petitioned" for it are the ones crying about the brown-outs.

    Sorry, Casper. I fail to see the energy problem in California as our own fault. Especially since the Enron tapes have been made public. For whatever reason, they singled us out for the price gouge of the century. And what did any government do to help us out over here. If they did it to Louisiana, I wouldn't blame it on Louisiana. I'd blame it on people so greedy, that the dollar is the only true God they know. We have been asked to be stewards of the land, and it is being destroyed beneath our feet by those we ask to protect it and us. If it were up to me, I'd out the Republican's and the Democrats and add several more parties so no one party held all the power, EVER!! The present system is falling apart, and we need to make every effort to change the crap the present powers have gotten us into.

    You see Bugweed, there is a fundemental flaw in your statement, but first let me address the energy issue.

    It will never happen in Louisiana because we produce our own energy via a nuclear power plant. Something that was proposed in Cali, but shot down because "no one wants to live within 250 miles of a nuclear power plant"

    Did Enron rape you guys? Sure they did, but the people of Cali put themselves in the position to be raped.

    Now, lets get to the real flaw about our "stewardship of the land". Now, I can agree with you to a point, but everything we have become as a people, yourself included, goes completly against that. Everything YOU depend on, destroys our planet. From the power you use to run the lights in your house, including your grow lights, to the water purification plants that clean your water, to the fumes put out by the vehicle that YOU drive.
    You moan about trafic the same as I do. So we expect "bigger" highways so that we don't have to sit in traffic. You drive a vehicle to get places, which polutes the air, and god only knows what the polluted air does to the plantlife in the world.

    So heres a great idea. Lets spend 2 days making legislature that gives people who drive electric cars a tax break! Great idea, yeah right. 70% of this countries power comes from coal burning power plants which produce 3-4 times the pollutants (per wat of energy produced wich translates over to h/p with some funky equation) as does a 4 cyl. gas engine.

    Now, Nuclear power, our safest and by far our cleanest (Read: no airborne pollutants) everyone is scared of. Sure, you have the waist, but it is contained in a single area. Might sound bad, but I would much rather turn one very small and already un-inhabitle area of the globe to crap than the whole darn thing. But alas, we have the "Not in my backyard" mentality.

    Hear, hear, hear. Good clear thinking. Casper for president...Lauderdale for Seargent at ARMS.
    I think a nuclear power plant would go well in downtown L.A. or San Francisco. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I guess the people near Chernobyl didn't have that not in my back yard mentality. I would hardly call nuclear power our safest energy source, however, I think solar power should be expanded and as the technology improves it should become more inexpensive.
