You sound like you have a case of size envy.
what you basically stated is that to be a true american. you need an all consuming gas guzzling power machine. and all Americans should buy the most un-economical cars possible. just to keep your country ticking over.
and then you wonder why. you keep going to war over oil.
do you really think oil is hear for ever. it a very depleting commodity.
and good Americans have give there lives for it. Just so you can can consume it, in the most un-productive way possible.
i really hope that's not the american way of though.. other wise this world is screwed...
try reading your own post.. its you that's over compensating my friend !!!
your the kind of person that will use a jack hammer. to drive in a thumb tack.
size envy my backside. i use the right tool for the right job....i don't need to go overboard.
