I don't drive one, but you can be sure "conservative" scumbags are
behind most of this. Those patriotic citizens who think conservation
is a sign of financial and moral weakness. They never quite wiped out
the Bison but they tried. Now, they think an invisible God owes them a
living at the expense of nature. Gluttony is a virtue. Ego-maniacal
pride is a badge of honor. You know the types.
If you want to buy a hybrid while avoiding the wrath of anti-ecology
Creatard vandals, look at the 2010 Ford Fusion hybrid; a very decent
car that gets 40+ MPG with 191 total God-fearing horses.
However, Ford uses Toyota's hybrid drive system with a "weak" Atkinson
cycle engine, etc. It also has leaf emblem on the trunk badge, which
might anger some selfish far-Right sack of garbage. But that's a good
thing. Let them perish from high blood pressure at the thought of
people actually respecting natural limits and conserving fuel.
Old conservative adage: waste not, want not.
New conservative adage: waste a lot, want more.

And who's politics were to blame when my late father's full-size
Detroit car got its rear window shot out with a BB gun 30 years ago?
Or was it just kids who weren't grown up yet out? Remember, nobody
even knew what a Prius was then - and hybrid cars weren't even on the

That's a sketchy analogy at best. Many vehicles get hit with
projectiles for many reasons. But these econo-cars are being targeted
for what they represent, which is conservation and an attempt to do
GOOD in the world. There is justifiably less pity when some fat ego
tank gets smashed up (though it gives environmentalism a bad name).
The problem is that "conservatives" constantly forget that they stand
for greed, gluttony and rampant takings, not goodness and
intelligence. They can't stand the idea of altruism.
"Conservatives" respect nature like rapists respect women.

It's not uncommon for kids or young men to drop rocks on cars from
overpasses above motorways here in Australia, and in gun-crazy USA,
one can easily imagine the same crowd shooting at cars.

Just curious, are these cars built by American car manufacturers?
Maybe you're wrong on the motive...
Do you want polite or do you want sincere?
