I MUST respond to your social media rant that having a gas hog is an ‘merican right offline.
In the past, freedom was not free. And it wasn’t meant to fill cars up with gas or for commodities. It WAS about freedom. In WWII people had to recycle, grow victory gardens, men were DRAFTED (and BTW, I am FOR reinstating the draft), gas was rationed (OMG! In our lifetime they talked about it during the embargo in the 1970’s.) Textiles went to the military first, so dungarees were expensive and the patches that were on your own clothes were worn with pride. People volunteered. Women rolled bandages and were members of the Red Cross.
I could go on. But, it seems to me ‘mericans think being supportive of FREEDOM is buying a magnetic yellow ribbon from China for a huge old hunky gas hog and wars are fought to keep a few folks rolling in dough.
With all due respect,
P.S. Bowling with Sherri Stately Ayers next week? Call me!
