Reply to Jeff Davidson on the Wheels

Jeff replied to the post about my new car with this...
"2 cars, no kids. nice to see you embracing conservative values.

for the record, my family of 4 has gone without a car for 5 years now. we made a decision as a family to consume less.

guess what? we're fit, spent more time together, have saved A TON of dough and use less of the good lord's precious gifts.

mind you, we're crazy moonbats..."
Just a couple of things to clear up all that...

First of all, we'd love to have kids... just hasn't happened as of yet, but thanks for asking.

Secondly, we're trying to consume less too... that's why I walk to and from work, and will continue to do so. (besides... parking is $30 a month!) Only planning to use the car for the couple of things a week that have been hard to co-ordinate with just one car.

Thirdly, I'm also way more fit now that I've been walking and biking to work.

Fourthly, some specs on our two vehicles for you to consider... our 4-cylinder 1997 VW Golf has a 2.0L engine in it. Our new vehicle, a 2005 Pontiac Vibe, has a critically acclaimed Toyota built 4cyl. 1.8L engine, regarded as one of the most fuel efficent engines in its class. So, I'd just like you to stop and think about it for just a moment... we're using our higher fuel consumption vehicle less, and a more fuel efficient engine more often. With the few kms I plan on using my older car for, our overall annual fuel consumption will be going DOWN, not up, as you have incorrectly assumed, just because we have a second car.

Of all the points you've made, you're correct on just one... yes, we're likely a little bit shorter than you on the dough side of things!

Well, you got about one out of seven points correct... not a bad average for a "moonbat"!

(maybe you want to reconsider your self declared "moonbat" status... I typically find that a true "moonbat" wouldn't have gotten any of those points correct... you got one, which I think disqualifies you for "moonbat" status)

    I think the point is that if anyone really wants to they can survive without a car regardless of reasons we all use for justifying things we want rather than need.

    Oh and time is running out for you to officially endorse Ron Paul before Super Tuesday :)

    Why bother responding to idiot limosine liberals who are fascists at heart like Jeff Davidson. You can only imgaine the how he wastes but, like the Kinsella crowd, wants everyone else to suffer for them. I have a V8 Suburban and I want to get a V8 BMW. There are more resorces on record now than there ever have been and we will continue to find and use those rescorces and develop new ones. Fools and liars like Jeff Davidson would put us back in caves and shorten our lifespan for his pleasure. In his world, he wouldn't suffer the way you and I would.
    Never explain yourself to the Jeff Davidson crowd.

    I wouldn't bother responding to Jeffy. You don't have to justify your purchase or your energy consumption to him or anybody.

    Enviromentalists have accused me of being wasteful... My wife and I live in a 4,100 square foot house by ourselves. I have boat with a fuel tank that holds 2,000 litres of diesel. Etc. Etc. They're not illegal, and I paid for them.

    If Jeffy and others like him don't approve of your purchases, well... that's just too bloody bad.

    Jeff got something else right too, he's a moonbat. Anyway where the heck do you pay $30/month for parking?? Parking in downtown Calgary is $500/month and rising. They're trying to persuade us financially to take the C-Train, but there's just too many bad things happening on that thing for me to take.

    Company lot, outside of downtown, in a 100,000 city, outside of the GTA... and they're only charging $30 because the Ministry of Health "suggested" to them that they should be charging for parking.

    Otherwise, it would still be free.
