RE: [DMCForum] Too much Hummer bashing?



Hi Jack,
  Why do you call them Green Weenies?  Just because its a different  way of thinking compared to you?  Because they are more concious  of the things happening around them and are trying to make a difference  in whatever way they choose? Not everyone who is a "green weenie" falls  into your description.  Just like not everyone who owns a hummer  falls into the "status" description.  Right?

  I go back to the same argument I have seen over and over again.  People who
  detest this type of car are usually the one who can't afford one and
  therefore rationalizes how bad they are.
  Some people might look at it and
  think it is a cool looking truck and it would be nice to have one, others
  will look at it and say it is way to big for them but it is a nice car,
  others, who I like to call Green Weenies, will look at it from their
  electric cars munching on Tofu, listening to Enya, dressed in their best
  Sunday Yuppie sweaters, living in their glass house telling everyone except
  other Green Weenies how stupid they are.
 
  See Erik you are missing a HUGE point.  I got the Hummer because I wanted
  to, for no other reason.  I don't have to rationalize my purchase like you
  do (good fuel efficiency, good mileage, economical, boring, just like
  everyone else's), my wife said she liked them and would like one so I got it
  for her.  I could rationalize my purchases all day long, but I don't have
  to.

  I never questioned your education, please be an adult and don't question
  mine.
   
    My delorean doesn't polute the atmospher and guzzle as much gas as your
  Hummer.  I really hope you aren't one of the many people out there  who
  complains about gas prices...yet won't give up your status symbles.
    Cars and trucks are needed in live.  If I didn't have my cars my  wife and
  I wouldn't be able to work and support our family.  But  we have economic
  cars that don't guzzle insane amounts of gas, yet  still fit everything we
  need in them.  If you are using the hummer  like a car...then you only
  bought it for status.  If you truely  bought it for hauling things, then you
  got taken because there are far  better things out there for pulling than a
  Hummer.  Maybe not as  stylish for your tastes though.
   
    Its your money though.  If you like to spend your money on such  things,
  thats great!  Hey, i bought a delorean and have put far  more into it than
  its worth.  You did the same for your Hummer ;)

  No car, truck, or SUV is necessary.  If you own anything  better than a
  horse or bicycle you own a useless waste of your  money.  A DeLorean?
  Useless waste.  It can only take 2 people  so car pooling is not an option.
  Grocery getting? Fraid not my  friend, no room for a real load for the
  family.  Speaking of  family.  Unless you are single with GF or have no
  kids, it is  useless.  Racing down the street?  Sorry, underpowered.
  Looking cool and making a statement?  Righto my friend.  Your  DeLorean is
  in the same category as the Hummers, status as much as  functionality.

    who cares if they paid that much for their gas  guzzler.  let  them be
  offended.  its an un-needed vehicle  bought only for  status.
