    Western freeloaders

    SUVs are only a small part of the problem. In
    fact, there is no "big waste" of oil, as you rightly
    point out. The point is that people in the press would
    rather beard the "ugly American" than talk about the
    real vectors of energy consumption.

    In line
    with the "head in the sand" discussion, notice how
    little discussion there is about the fact that oil is
    going to get a lot more expensive over the next 10
    years, and that the only thing price controls and tax
    reductions will do is encourage the use of oil to hasten
    total depletion.

    Campaign finance reform, gun
    control law, hate crime laws, etc. The core issue there
    is that the government is missing either or both of
    the resolve or the competence to enforce the laws on
    the books. Social Security? When the issues are too
    difficult to discuss without someone coming up with a
    bigger lie, lie first and biggest!
