Typical response from anyone with limited intelligence who is losing an
argument. When faced with facts
you can't dispute,curse,swear or yell louder.

Here you go, the truth will set you free........
'Aggregated results from the /Omnibus Household Survey/ conducted in
February, April, June, and August of 2003
show an average of 127.3 million adult U.S. residents^1 (61 percent)
were employed for pay or profit in the calendar
month preceding the surveys. About nine out of ten workers (92 percent)
reported that they commuted from home to
work and the majority of workers (90 percent) commuted on at least 15
days during the month prior to the survey.
To get to work, the average commuter travels approximately 15 miles one
way. Two out of three commuters
(68 percent) reported a one-way commute of 15 miles or less, 22 percent
traveled between 16 and 30 miles and 11
percent traveled more than 30 miles^2"
Here's a graph for you:

Around here the vast majority unless you work in "the big smoke"
Anyone living and working in the greater Twin Cities area (Kitchener
Waterloo) CAN get to and from work in less than 30 miles. Living in
Elmira and working in Kitchener still gets you there. Same with
Baden/New Hamburg. Working in Cambridge or Guelph would be pushing it
