Unlike lab rats, Americans are completely untrainable

It’s been reported recently in the news that, with gas prices at record lows, people are “trading in their hybrids” and buying SUVs again.

We really are morons. Lab rats can at least can be trained. We, it appears, are completely untrainable.

It should be as obvious as the nose on your face that what comes down must go up again. Especially when it comes to a limited resource like oil. One which, by the way, is also making a substantial contribution to climate change.

I, of course, wanted to buy a Volkswagen Diesel back in September. I was literally talking to the dealers when the crisis with the VW Diesels hit the news.

I’m still waiting for them to become available again. Fancy that.

And the collective we, it appears, are completely untrainable.

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
