No new approaches and ideas can be born from old minds.

America is kicking ass and who is at the helm? Joe Biden, an old guy...don't be ageist. Judge these people on their merits, not their age. I agree these politicians suck but it's their attitude, not their age that's the problem.

Honestly, good, where I live it's just people driving around all day ruining the environment. I don't want them to have to suffer financially of course but some type of deterrent so they think twice before driving I think is a very good thing in 2023.

I ride my bike all the time, even when I don't feel like it, I take the car to do groceries or when absolutely required. I think more people should be doing this personally.
