oh... of course not. i also dont buy into the elementary biological principal that the rain forests provide the planet with oxygen and we cant drink nothing but seawater.

im beginning to buy into the principal that there is plenty of oxygen if you bury your head in sand.

climate change or not... its all about preventing waste as a first step. i love how republicans are so focused about govt waste, but dont give a shit about personal or individual waste. (kinda makes it hard to take them seriously.)

in the meantime i will continue to turn down the water as i brush my teeth, simply because it it a good habit. and may save me 10 bucks over the course of a year. i have taught my offspring to do the same.

you continue turning it up full blast if it makes you feel better.

Thank you. I couldn't have said it better.

Another empty and futile gesture brought to you by liberalism.

Hey, I have no problem with this. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with conservation, green initiatives, recycling, etc...as long as it's done responsibly and not done in a way that jeopardizes progress or business.

I take great umbrage with kooky Utopians who want to go overboard and basically want to shut the World as we know it down in an attempt to stop something that isn't actually happening (man made climate change).

Just like the old commercial says, "You can't fool Mother Nature".

Pork spending creates waste. A trillion dollar pig pen to wallow in.

As for conservation, nothing wrong with it to a point. Just don't expect me to sit on a stationary bike hooked to a generator to charge up the car.

No, no, no, for some of us (like myself) politics has absolutely nothing to do with it. I'm only vaguely interested in politics lately, maybe because I'm getting older. I wasn't raised in a politically minded household, my mom hates politicians so much that she can't even stand to watch any president's speech on TV.
I'm conservative because we were poor. I came from basic bluecollar people, my Grandfather worked in a foundry all of his life. The kind of people that try to buy good useful things & like to hold onto things for a long time.
I'm not conservative for any political party, most of thse guys probably don't know the true meaning of conservative because most have never been poor. I'm not a tree hugger, but I love nature & try to respect it because it is God's gift to us & it's beautiful, not because it's popular to do so.
Some of us like to save money. I color my own hair, fix my own vehicle when possible, & like to do stuff like buying unfinished wood furniture, refinishing it myself & keeping it around for years. I like thrift shops. I don't run the water when I brush (I have a Sonic brush) & I don't throw trash out the window when I'm in my car. Why not? Because people who do are pigs, that's why.
I once worked with a silly shallow girl who once bragged about being a "throw away girl" who likes to throw everything away everytime she moves. I could only look at her in horror while wishing I could punch her in the head & stay out of jail.
For some people, being truly conservative is a kind of personal satisfation, we do it for ourselves. It brings about a certain feeling of independence.
We look at the blind consumers as the Sheeple. If you guys want to blow tons of money on crap that you'll want to throw away in two years & run up those credit cards, you go for it. But it's not fair to label those who don't as Liberals.
I know plenty of Republicans that are in debt as well.
The blind consumerism is just a symptom of an empty society, a throw away society where things are designed to become obsolete for the latest new thing. And that doesn't just apply to things, it applies to people as well.

Whoa, slow down there beSteelmyheart. The empty and futile gesture I was referring to is not saving a few pennies on your utility bill, but the whole "turn off all your lights for an hour and save the earth". You have to admit, even if every home, office, business participated, it wouldn't amount to much, I mean c'mon, one hour ?! Just another worthless call to action by libs. As for saving on my utility bill, I do what I can each and every day to keep it down. That's good for me and the environment. Speaking of saving the earth, I, the lone republican on my street, am the ONLY one who recycles. Go figure. PS: I have a mother, and her name isn't earth.
