Yeah, that's already becoming clich�d. This whole 'What Would Jesus Drive' movement seems like a desperate attempt by environmentalists to use religion to drive home their message.
Well, some of them are getting so desperate, they are taking rather drastic measures, like acid-attacks on parked SUVs in dealer lots.
A funny thing I noticed the other day - while at a traffic light, I saw this Jesus worshipper who had plastered all kinds of feel-good inspirational Jesus stickers on the back of his Jeep SUV, also had a WWJD sticker. Now, did he put that himself?

I think it's wrong that some people are so ego-centered that they don't mind having their government kill middle east residents so they can go about impressing other small minded people with their conspicious consumption.

The "What Would Jesus Drive (WWJD)" is a takeoff of "What Would Jesus Do (WWJD)", a popular "marketing" slogan used by some Protestants.

Not exactly sure what you are trying to say, but if you are trying to say that "some people are so ego-centered that they don't mind having their government kill middle east residents in order to better secure oil resources to perpetuate Western consumption", or something similar, I have seen no evidence that anyone thinks this way. But what does a potential foreign conflict have to do with environmentalist whackos?

side historical note or histerical if you prefer..
In the time of Jesus..people rode on donkeys and after they seved their usefullness they ate them..
thus .. Jesus drives and eats an ass!

Jason, Jason, Jason ...
Had Kenya overrun Djibouti in 1992 do think George Bush would have given a rat's ass?
The N Koreans brag about their WMDs.
Would you contest that the vehicle people drive is an extension of their personality?
Would you contest that this country is a serious importer of petrol products; that these products are essential to gas guzzlers all over America?
These environmentalist you belittle believe there is a strong connection between gas guzzlers and the need to kill men with pointy beards.
Jason do you think the price of a gallon of gas covers the whole cost of the gasoline? Would you contest that a large sum of taxes goes to being the policeman in the PG and that a large sum of that should really should come from a user fee on petroleum?
Do you think future generations should have the right to buy and consume petoleum?
Do you think global warming is a myth and that we should have feel no remorse about the creation of greenhouse gases?
Do you think this countries' poor black men should be dying in SE Asia so the capitalist pigs can open another market for enslavement?
You're looking like a straight man to me.
P.S. Even if OSB detonates a nuclear device the US will never retaliate with nuclear weapons. You need lay off the bottle again.

So. PETA thinks my cat is worth more than you.
Jason do you think the price of a gallon of gas covers the whole cost of the gasoline?
Without the taxes it would be a lot cheaper.
Do you think future generations should have the right to buy and consume petoleum?
Future generations probably won't need to consume fossil fuels. And with your comment about global warning, you probably don't want them to anyway.
Do you think global warming is a myth and that we should have feel no remorse about the creation of greenhouse gases?
At this point the question is still open. Certainly the world was warmer in the 1200's than it is today.
Do you think this countries' poor black men should be dying in SE Asia so the capitalist pigs can open another market for enslavement?
? You lost me there. Are you talking about the Vietnam war (which ended 30 years ago)? I'll bet the Vietnamese would have been very happy if we had won that war.

Oh boy, time for true MD:

Would you contest that the vehicle people drive is an extension of their personality?

Ok, I'll bite. We have a Toyota Corolla and a Ford Ranger. I normally drive the Ranger. What am
I like?

Would you contest that this country is a serious importer of petrol products; that these
products are essential to gas guzzlers all over America?

And all industrialized nations, my man.

These environmentalist you belittle believe there is a strong connection between gas guzzlers
and the need to kill men with pointy beards.

Playboy and the NFL promote domestic abuse. Fur is murder. To people like Arundhati Roy, the
American government used peanut butter to demoralize and profane the Afghani people.
So, let's throw acid, let's burn magazines, let's vandalize personal property. All you need is
a strong belief in what you believe in to justify your acts.

Do you think future generations should have the right to buy and consume petoleum?

In a truly free market, there are no rights; just supply and demand.

Do you think global warming is a myth and that we should have feel no remorse about the
creation of greenhouse gases?

No and yes; we know what we're doing, and it's not stopping us from doing it. Remorse would be
misspent self-pity in this context.

Do you think this countries' poor black men should be dying in SE Asia so the capitalist pigs
can open another market for enslavement?

I think any overprivileged white boy who uses ADD as a legal defense for vandalizing some cars
in Singapore should be caned within an inch of his life, on pay-per-view, with an inset view of
the father's face after the impact of each lash. I think a poor black man from this country,
selected by a panel including Joe Rogan, Chris Rock, Marion Barry, and Pete Rose, should host
it.
Personally, I don't think anyone should be dying in SE Asia for capitalists, unless they are
capitalists themselves. Even then, the rich tend to send the poor to do it, the old tend to send the young to do it. Oh well.

I don't know if George would have. Maybe a more relevant question is whether or not the average American would have?

The N Koreans brag about their WMDs.


Stream of consciousness? Anyway, so do other nations who recently "aquired" the technology to produce nukes. Is there a point?

Would you contest that the vehicle people drive is an extension of their personality?


Yes I would. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.

Would you contest that this country is a serious importer of petrol products; that these products are essential to gas guzzlers all over America?


As Michael pointed out, same with every other industrialized nation.

These environmentalist you belittle believe there is a strong connection between gas guzzlers and the need to kill men with pointy beards.


They believe many things that are not true. I would like to suggest however that your constant references to "men with pointy beards" is a euphamism that may be offensive to some.

Jason do you think the price of a gallon of gas covers the whole cost of the gasoline?


Well, seeing as there are taxes on gasoline and built in profit, I would think it fairly clear that this isn't the case.

Would you contest that a large sum of taxes goes to being the policeman in the PG and that a large sum of that should really should come from a user fee on petroleum?


Yes I would. A fair portion of our taxes goes towards national defense, which includes energy security. A "user fee" on petroleum would be at least as absurd as a user fee on anything else our taxes go towards. A large sum of taxes goes towards education. Should we slap a "user fee" on parents whose children attend public school? Equally ridiculous.

Do you think future generations should have the right to buy and consume petoleum?


I think Michael had the correct response to this one.

Do you think global warming is a myth and that we should have feel no remorse about the creation of greenhouse gases?


Science has not been able to make a clear determination on this, so I don't think I will either.

Do you think this countries' poor black men should be dying in SE Asia so the capitalist pigs can open another market for enslavement?


What are you talking about? Are you referring to Afghanistan, in Central Asia? Not that it matters, but most of the US casualties have thus far been white guys. Regardless of the racial makeup of any of our casualties or any potential future casualties, they all signed on the dotted line and accept the risks that go with the job.

You're looking like a straight man to me.


Thank you. My girlfriend agrees.

P.S. Even if OSB detonates a nuclear device the US will never retaliate with nuclear weapons. You need lay off the bottle again.


Not sure where this is coming from. I believe that during the Gulf War we made it very clear to Saddam that if he used WMDs that we would retaliate with nukes. Now my guess is they would have been tactical, not strategic nukes, but I'm not sure whether or not you recognize the difference. Anyway, US doctrine maintains the nuclear option.

I believe it is a red Jeep Wrangler, sports model, with soft-top down, 35 inch big wheels, roof rack and basket, SONY studio system with sub-woofer, a alarm system worth of $1,000.
And whatever he drives, never caught speeding by police.
