Un-Fucking Believable

First, read this amazing piece of news that I found on a friend’s blog. Then let it roll around in your mind for a second. What do you think is wrong with their hypothesis? If you can’t figure it out, I will be more than happy to tell you. Instead of blaming the rich bastards that run our country, the greedy assholes who own the oil companies, and the fuckwit car companies who apparently can’t make an environmentally friendly car to save their lives, we blame, yet again, fat people for ruining the environment and driving up the cost of oil! Really, I’m a fat kid and I walk or ride my bike everywhere or ride the city bus, unless there are more than two people in the car. Besides that I am vegan, so no extra petroleum use or greenhouses gases coming from this fat kid! I can also think of quite a few skinny little bitches that I know who drive everywhere alone in their own cars, consume more than their fair share of calories, and do nothing to try to reduce their carbon footprints.

My question about this whole thing is: can we STOP blaming people and stop pointing fingers long enough to realize we ALL need to change the way we live in order to make the world better? If we all stopped driving to places we could walk or ride our bikes to, then we wouldn’t need to worry if it was the fat kids who fucked it all up! We could worry instead, how to carpool to save gas, how to eat meals together so we didn’t have so many left overs that we never eat (incidentally, I eat left overs like nobody’s business now), and we could make real changes in our lifestyles! It takes a whole gallon of petroleum to make 18 plastic grocery bags, so think about that the next time you forget your cloth bags!
