Thread Name: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
My wife and I have driven vehicles that have AVERAGED more than 25 mpg since we were married in 1973 -- I have the records and can prove it. We now have ONE vehicle that gets an average of 22-23 mpg, and that's the first on in 33 years with mileage like that!

We have also recycled during that whole time.

My nieces and nephews have and are paying their own way through college, via scholarships, grants, work, the GI Bill and loans; their parents did the same (and repaid every penny of the loans, too). Builds character -- and I'm not being facetious about that.

I'm not normally one to get annoyed; I'll leave a thread first. But this time I say: Start changing or start dying. It's the same choice humans have always had.
