  1. Whatever happened to "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"? Americans have a long history of doing what their country asked of them, whether it be serving in the military or tending the victory gardens back home. If America asked it's citizens to inflate their tires and plant vegetables I bet we'd get some results.

    This is how you know it's in the general consciousness now :)
  10. Rebate the planet with your economic stimulus check!

    Good idea. We should try to use this "economic stimulus bribe" to buy things to reduce our dependancy on oil whenever possible.
  11. Amazing GREEN city

    You're right, I'd never heard of this city. I wonder why?
