To Laugh or to Cry?

Saw a back to the 60's bumper sticker today - "Love Mother Earth".
The irony? It was attached to the bumper of a Lexus LX SUV. V-8 engine. 13 MPG in the city. Starting price - $67,895.

I think the owner loves Conspicuous Consumption more than Mother Earth.

How do you keep from throwing rocks at morons like this??
I am too chicken to do it, but I do so love those militants who slap bumper stickers on those bad boys that say, "I'm changing the environment! Ask me how!"

I suppose by "chicken" I could mean "law abiding".

Funny post. :) Hey, I noticed you're from Texas. I actually work with an environmental group in Dallas. There's a bill on Governor Perry's desk right now that will allow landfills and hazardous waste sites to be put anywhere in Texas without any kind of public notification. We're doing grassroots organizing to convince the Gov to veto the bill. Check it out at texasenvironment.org. Click on the "pending legislation" link near the top of the page, and you can access a site to email Perry.

What gets me is the giant SUVs with the yellow "Support Our Troops" ribbon fixed to the rear hatch. I've noticed they make giant yellow ribbons that will really stand out on the huge SUV hatches. I can't help but snort. Yeah, support our troops so they can bring home my oil. Sheesh!
