another (proposed) blow for the U.S. car enthusiasts.

I read in the paper today that this guy believes that we should ban all car commercials because it causes people to be obsessed with cars and be motivated to buy new ones, thus causing americas problems. He compared it to cigarette commercials and he said that its necessary and blah blah blah.

People obsessed with cars, what a stupid inclination. Next they'll be telling us there are whole websites dedicated to cars!
