NO Stock in OIL company. Do you want to know how many rental homes I own?

Paid for by the United States government grant through the Department of Energy. Had to PROVE my worth and submitted to a very rigorous review process. I was GREEN before the word was even used. Brookhaven National Lab conducted tours of my normal to me but radical to them home till I got fed up with the ooh's and aah's about my energy killing Sub Zero refrigerator (my rare violation). Wanted a refrigerator on top like June Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver. I'm very philosophical
about how America abuses fuel. I don't even hang Christmas lights since 1974. Decorations yes but no lights. But that's another story...
Now I suck down as much gasoline as needed. I conserved for so long I finally gave up attempting to influence change by example. Deep down inside most don't care unless it hits their pocket. Once in a while I'll speak up on this site about saving fuel but I don't think I'm much of an influence.
