    One of the things that disgusts me the most about the "war" on terror concept is that nearly everyone, regardless of whether they're on the far right or the far left, seems to think that dealing with terrorism is someone else's problem.

    Time to wake up.

    Traveling halfway around the world to guard some billionaire's oil well isn't deterring terrorism. Slapping a silly looped ribbon sticker on the back of your SUV isn't deterring terrorism. Peace marches don't deter terrorism.

    At the end of the day, terrorists operate only on an individual or cell level. Which means that the civilized world has to fight them on the same level. Remember those "neighborhood watch" programs? If you haven't already done so, stop watching Idol and get to know your neighbors, dang it! Get to know the people who work in your favorite supermarket, and the people you commute with. (Maybe even read my signature, while you're at it.)

    America was built by doers, not by partisan cheerleaders. What are you doing?

    Not that SUVs have anything to do with terrorism, but you would ban them for what reason?

    You're no more conservative than Porky Pig - you just go with whatever flow you hope will protect you when you open your face and say something stupid.

    thats not true. They use more gas, then most cars. And oil pays for terrorism, so while you can say, any car can pay for terrorism, those cars support terrorism at a greater percentage. Also, I am a moderate conservative, and i go issue by issue, while you are a moron who can only name call, and has no significant points to make.

    Suvs use MORE gas then other cars. Therefore I would ban SUV's. Most conservatives would hate me for saying that.

    Now, how about you make a point, other then a personal attack?

    You have no right to ban anything, and you certainly have no right to dictate to people what they should spend their money on.

    Even if suvs are not banned, the gas mileage standards must be raised. Now, I am not the president, simply giving my opinion, I wouldnt cry, if suvs were banned because of their lousy gas mileage. We do need to stop being dependant on foreign oil, and stop using oil all together.
