I've been trying to keep up with every mis-step that BP makes with this friggin' oil spill, and how the government just keeps dragging their feet while people all over the region are suffering financially, and soon enough physically from the toxic oil that has completely permeated the areas they live in...\n \nAnyway, it occurred to me about a month ago that this would be and still is the perfect opportunity for a company/organization/cartel whatever to step in and do a giant PR campaign to change the minds of the American people once and for all, and rid us of our massive oil addiction.\n \nSo I waited, and waited, and waited. I got nothing. Periodically, I saw a commercial with an ex-soldier telling us to get off of oil, some company called POET, and that's it. I don't even know what those commercials are for. Where is the outrage?!?! They talked more about us getting off of oil during the Presidential Debates than they are right now...God Bless Barack Obama, I voted for him, I even worked on the Campaign, but WTF! Do you need it laid out on your pillow before you go to sleep at night!! I've got a great idea...Call the boys at GM, and tell them they have til the end of the year to get a whole lot of cars that are 100% electric on the road. I'm sure they'd listen to you since you gave them a shit-load of money.\n \nRemember back when JFK said that he wanted to go to the moon, and 10 years later we actually landed on the moon? Where in the hell is that type of imagination and innovation? I cannot believe with 1 cell in my body that we don't have the technology to make a car go 400 miles on electricity, water, air, or anything besides oil...\n \nI just saw on CNN that a space capsule that has traveled 4,000,000,000 miles (That's billion with a B) just came back to earth. And Wolf Blitzer is telling me that I can't drive around all day unless I stop at a gas station that is owned by people who are trying to kill me and my family? I don't believe it!! \n \nI'm tired of hearing about American Soldiers getting killed because of some 3rd world backward ass country just happens to be sitting on top of the majority of the worlds oil. Bottom line, the people in the middle east are never going to stop throwing rocks at tanks, and they're never going to stop believing in Allah, so we might as well pack our gear and let some 18 yr old kids make it out of that cesspool. \n \nSo I've come to the conclusion that we're doomed. We're always going to use oil for our cars. The sad reality of it is that our economy is based on oil, and the powers that be have concluded that it's more cost effective to let planes fly into our buildings, soldiers get killed in foreign countries, and oil to spill into our oceans than it is to re-vamp our economy.\n \nSo I decided to go with a natural gas conversion kit. It would be a little inconvenient for me, but I'd be able to sleep at night, and I'd be willing to invest the 2k to have my engine changed to natural gas....\n \nTurns out they don't make a conversion kit for my vehicle which happens to be driven by a Chevy 4.3 V6. The most popular engine GM has ever made...I'm back to WTF!
