so mad. SO MAD.

I saw Who Killed the Electric Car? with my roommate this evening.

OH. MY. GOD.

I was literally almost in tears as we were walking out of the theater, I was that upset and frustrated. Roomie and I spent pretty much the entire second half of the movie staring at the screen in open-mouthed shock at how much corporations and the government SUCK. Did you know Condoleeza Rice used to be on Chevron's board of directors? I sure as hell didn't. Roomie and I quickly came to the conclusion that she really, REALLY needs to get registered to vote between now and November so she can help get our current Republican Bush-buddy senator out of office. Because right now, my mindset is that anybody even remotely connected with this administration needs to go.

And of course, the stuff in the movie about the Bush administration wasn't even the main focus. When they showed the footage of the electric cars being secretly crushed and shredded and destroyed in the middle of the desert, and then showed the footage of the GM spokesman guy promising that all the parts from the cars would be "recycled"... and when they showed people being led away in handcuffs for trying to block the trucks that were taking the cars to be destroyed...

Y'all need to see this movie. Seriously. Now. If you're not lucky enough to have a little independent theater that show awesome films like this, you need to get your hands on it the minute it comes out on DVD.

Oh my God.

You know, a very good friend of mine, was a key engineer in the electronic propulsions unit, for the Impact. Yup, in the early 1990's, he brought one of the first prototypes over to the house and took us, and the kids, for a ride, one at a time (that battery took up so much space there was no backseat to speak of). Anyway, I always wondered what the hell happened and why, because the car was not only gorgeous, it WORKED, and it worked well!

We need to keep oil tycoons out of government, period.
