    And if you don't obey a regulation via agencies, bureaucrats or inspectors ?
    Better hang on to that wallet !! Extortion.
    Cigarette taxes aren't to prevent people from picking the habit. Who are you kidding? If they want people to stop they can ban them. Maybe the FDA will be brave enough to do just that .

    I am really not interested in imagination. I am interested in reality.

    Viewed as some kind of "daydream of utopia" there is nothing wrong with your world view, but in reality it is not very practical. The only way to convince 99% of the American population to give up their lifestyle in favor of yours would be the barrel of a gun. You are either idly musing away our limited opportunity for meaningful action to address environmental issues, or you are serious about your ideas and willing to use the methods of Pol Pot to accomplish them.

    I don't think our society would ever start razing houses and using the material to fill mines.

    Midcan..

    What we propose is plowing over houses that are too large and too far from public transportation. Houses that have taken over land once farmed and forests that create byproducts that keep our planet healthy. Exceptions of course would be functional houses: farm homes and barns, worker quarters, and some recreational homes provided they are clustered near the recreational location.

    Surely you jest....Edwards would have to give up his 28,000 sq.ft. homestead ?...

    John Kerry would have to limit himself to only one house (mansion) instead of the 4 or 5 he now maintains....

    those Hollywood liberals would have to trade-in their 6, 10, 15 million dollar homes for the "good of the planet".....

    what a dreamer, what an imagination, what a warped sense of reality, what a moron...

    More Socialist/Communist idiocy. If I want a big house and have the money I WILL have a big house and there is nothing you would/could/should/will/can/shall do about it. It's call FREEDOM. Something you have no concept of.

    The INDIVIDUAL is what America was FOUNDED ON. The collective is the idea of Karl Marx and has been PROVEN to have NO VALUE.

    Hey let's just have the government build a lot of dormitories and we can all live there. We can all get a government issued bike with a basket on the front and a bell on the handlebars. Lights out at 10 PM and thermostats remotely controlled by Al Gore himself.

    We can all eat a government approved diet and wear government approved clothing Just think we will all be equal and live in peace love and harmony with all the people and creatures of the earth..

    ROTFLMAO or rather

    That depends on how you view your use of the earth that really belongs to all. It could be you are just stupid or greedy or destroying the earth for the future. It could be all of these things - uses big words and concepts you don't understand is not an answer.
