California's emission control laws forced the entire auto industry to make better cars, despite the whining of crybaby republicans. Any publicity is good publicity. It takes a sledge hammer to get Americans away from the boob tube and actually think. Tim, you want to leave the situation as it is?

"For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination.
