    Re: Beneficial environmental/economic ideas

    ^^^ Might wanna watch yourself there. Dontya know water vapor is a greenhouse gas? There's this cult that's kinda against those. Green thought police might pay you a visit if you keep up with that kind of heresy.
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    Awesome!!!

    Jokes aside, something like this could indeed be a major thing and go well beyond vehicles.

    I could see Thorium powered home generators being a big thing.

    Heck, we oughta write a grant request to Obambi as a Solyndra replacement... maybe he could spot us half a billion bones to play around with.
