    Green CarEditors Note: This blog post is a parody, and should not be taken seriously.

    Recently, Campus Progress posted a blog about "greening your ride." (You can read the entire post here ) Their genius advice included gems like, ”Turn off your air conditioning and roll up your windows at the same time," and "don't use any air fresheners." Case and point: an environmentally friendly car is a hot and smelly one.

    We thought these tips were genius, and decided to help conservatives green their workspace. (Most of you reading this are at work after all.) Here are some tips:

    1)  Computers use a lot of electricity. Turn them off entirely. Do not answer emails. Instead, invest in carrier pigeons.

    2)  Paper is bad for the environment. Don't print anything on paper. Instead, write everything on your hand and/or arm.

    3)  Driving to work drastically increases your carbon footprint. Ask your boss if you can telecommute, or just not work at all.

    4)  Constantly washing dress shirts uses vital resources. Instead of dressing in business casual, change your workplace dress code to fig leaves.

    5)  Business cards are a waste of cardstock. Write your contact information on rocks, and throw them at potential clients.

    Once you've incorporated these few tips into your workplace, you'll be well on your way to greening your entire life! Now stop reading this and turn off your computer.

    • I love, love, love this post. You know what makes me sad? That you will never be able to say of me, ‘But she never complained.’” ME TOO!Dancing in the kthcien?? ME TOO!When I’m grouchy I say of those tasks, while slamming things around, “You know what? This is enough. These tasks – cleaning, cooking, wiping faces, and folding laundry – that’s enough full time job for anyone and I hate that I have to do it on top of the other one.” ME TOO!I was your nodding amen choir all the way through this one. You got me at the end, though. It’s enough to make the rest of the day worth it – these hours that are just for home and family and the intense happiness of having it all in order. It’s enough. I try to be half full but I have yet to put this positive spin on my evening craziness and I love your perspective on this. You are kind of my shero today. http://yxcqrdgi.com [url=http://dmwhledo.com]dmwhledo[/url] [link=http://tldtol.com]tldtol[/link]

    • Peter... latest info from Indonesian fernid : A car require 4 people to go into the city centre and 4 people required to be seen if the car is driven out of Jakarta city centre. So not sure if tipping passengers to get in and out of the city centre is worth it. http://vtuzyohqr.com [url=http://ajoqzxmnzv.com]ajoqzxmnzv[/url] [link=http://nygrbqgxtcu.com]nygrbqgxtcu[/link]
