Carbon Footprint This Motherfucka!

Angry Prius Drivers Taking Out Eco-Guilt on Larger Vehicles

A Prius driver in Colorado is being charged with felony road rage after ramming some poor old guy in a Chevy pickup and repeatedly shoving him against a door. From the Gazette (h/t DB):
The victim, a man who wasn't identified, told police that Cox followed him and intentionally sideswiped his Chevrolet pickup three times before both drivers stopped at Lake Avenue and Venetucci Boulevard, police said.

When the men got out, Cox pushed the victim several times into the doorjamb of his truck, police said. The man complained of back pain. The Prius sustained more damage than the pickup, Cirka said.

"I think the only damage was where the pickup's wheel ran up against the Prius," he said.
This reminds me of when a group of greeny Seattle bicyclists beat up a motorist last summer. The combination of white guilt, self-righteousness of saving mother earth, and misguided rage of these people will continue to provide some hilarious sissy-ass'd slap fights to make the headlines.

I like to downshift and burn extra gas in my Cobra when I pull up to a hybrid. I also can't stop saying "Good for youuuuuuuu. Thaaaannnnkkss!" From South Park.

I'll fucking run over a Prius like the picture with the HMMWV doing it.

The smug level seems to have gotten violent in the case of the Prius road rage. Watch out for Hollywood celebs and Obama supporters. You might get killed.

What kind of carbon footprint does a totaled Prius leave anyway?

I've bought 8 tanks of gas, drive a Focus and biked over 10K miles to work in the past year. Yeah I'm conservative fuck all you all liberals in H3's who try to crush me under your gas guzzling Obama wagons!

Who's the hypocrit now beeeeaaaattttcchhh! And I didn't start biking to work to "save the environment" I do that every day at work, now I just dodge idiots with Obama bumper stickers on their SUV.

I feel much better now that I got that out of my system. Besides the chick that hit me with her SUV last year had an Obama bumper sticker and one of those cook Hybrid logos on her car.

Hey! What do you mean! If you drive a Prius you automatically win every argument and can do whatever you want to anyone you deem subhuman [non-Prius drivers]

mmmmm, wouldn't you want something bigger and stronger than a prious if you were going to ram other vehicles?
Maybe something like a H2, retrofitted that gets 60 mpg, just sounds stupid to ram a larger vehicle with a tin can prious, although if anyone wants to donate a free prious to me, I am game

I think global warming is a scam.
I am actually concerned that an ice age may be approaching. What better way to control people than through fear of imagination and keep people from the truth that all of the scenarios are true except reversed, global cooling. It's happened before, most recently the "little" ice age, and it is happening now.
Global cooling is much more scary, famine, freezing to death, etc
Get the real data, and forget Al Gore, although his movie was very entertaining.

At time like this I miss my old '89 Suburban. I miss being able to drive like a sane person, secure inthe knowledge that if anyone tries to take issue with it then my entire truck is worth less than one of their 1/4 panels.
