One of my buddies who is aware of my blog just gave me a ration of shit. Apparently, he can't understand how I could think the way that I do. After all didn't the powers that be create this marvelous society where a man can have a smokin' hot trophy wife and a Mcmansion and several SUV's. What could be wrong with a society like that.
He went on to explain how the "po' folk" are just whining little losers who can't compete. That the big boys like him are just better than the poor and the vanishing middle class. Apparently my concern regarding an intrusive government is just a guilty conscience. As for peak oil and the oil wars, we can take the Arab's oil and that will solve our problems.
So, one friend down. Telling him to fuck off and then informing him that, in my opinion, his wife really isn't that good of a lay, probably wasn't the civilized way to approach it.
