    Looks like 2020. I like Audi’s just can’t afford them.

  • Hal Groar

    I felt a twinge as I watched it. Little too close to home.

  • Dan McGrath

    Double-click the video to go to Audi’s YouTube page and check out the other videos they’ve produced for this campaign. If you are in doubt about their angle, that should clear it up.

    That video or ad is a spoof about the truth… Beware of Greenies and eco nuts, they are working towards taking away all of your rights, freedoms, and liberties. this type of treatment is already happening to many of us that use any type of natural resource’s, such as legal commercial miners, hunters, trappers, farmers, fishermen, treasure hunters, marine salvors, etc. etc.

    Even your private property rights are being attacked, and taken away from you, as an example when you buy real estate /property, it usually includes all mineral rights, but now if you have… gravel, Gold, water, coal, minerals, oil, or natural gas, on your property the government now says that it is not yours to use, harvest, or sell.

    The government has now drastically stepped up it’s efforts to steal from its citizens. ( in both physical property, and our natural, civil, and constitutional rights ).

    Nuts… simply nuts. You guys and your paranoia… take a chill pill.

  • paul wenum

    Pills come in plastic containers. I can see a druggist now putting your “chill pills” into a paper bag. It may be coming well be coming?

    • Dan McGrath

      More likely you’ll have to bring your own reusable burlap (or hemp) pill bag to the pharmacy to be filled.

    Nothing’s wrong with Hemp, in fact it could be a very valuable crop to start growing on a big scale. But research it and you’ll discover some same old devious anti-free market forces that have been fighing it for a long time. Status quo and money are the issues. And before you all start dismissing this post with Pot jokes, etc. The Hemp I am referring to is not that type, of course- but the powers that be don’t care, they use propaganda, as usual, for their benefit. And that ain’t paranoia- it’s reality. There are many anot-free market forces in power now. And they aren’t all Liberals, in fact it’s mostly big corporate right-wingers. It shouldn’t matter thought either way. We should be banding together to fight them and their selfish harmful policies. Instead you folks focus on mostly meaningless self-centered issues that have been created to divide us. We lose, they win. And “they” aren’t and never will be you… wake up.

  • Paul Wenum

    Rob, other than you talking about “ditch weed” that has been around for years I have no understanding about what you are even talking about. Enlighten me please?

  • Rob N. Hood

    Hemp, marijuana’s illegal cousin, has long been known for its strength, durability, and vitality, which has made it one of the most functional agricultural products in history. The plant has more than 200 uses, including food (for humans and birds), fuel, oil, textiles (including canvas bags and clothes), plastics, paint, paper, livestock bedding and food, building materials, rope, sails, and now eco-friendly bricks that have a very low conductivity and good insulation in both the heat and cold. One acre of industrial hemp can produce more usable fiber than four acres of trees or two acres of cotton.

    In addition, when growing hemp, insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides are not needed. It can also be used in crop rotation cycles (used in the system of organic gardening) to add vital nutrients back to the soil that are lost when growing crops like corn and tobacco.

    It was reported in 1951 in A History of the Hemp Industry in Kentucky that Kentucky accounted for 50% of the industrial hemp production during the 1800s. In a 1998 study, The Center for Business and Economy Research at the University of Kentucky reported that if Kentucky were to create hemp processing plants that it would “have an economic impact of 771 full-time equivalent jobs and $17,600,000 in worker earnings.” Because of the increased desire for environmentally friendly and/or sustainable products in the past decade, the economic impact of industrial hemp may be more than reported.

    The total amount of money lost in the United States and Kentucky from importing hemp and its by products is not known. However, based on the increase in popularity of hemp products, it can be assumed that we are losing millions, if not billions of dollars yearly in revenue from having to import hemp products.

    Rob,

    I don’t need cut and paste, I know what hemp is and the history. What is your point? That bong not working? Just kidding.

  • Rob N. Hood

    You asked, I answered. Something you apparenlty cannot do. Very typical. Do you not see any juvenile behavior in what you just did here???

  • Paul Wenum

    Look at your cut and paste posts from the past. It is what it is. Deal with it.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Introspection… the place to start. Yes, I agree with that. Why is is that people who often give advice don’t seem to take it themselves?

  • Paul Wenum

    Suggest you look in a mrror.

  • Dan McGrath

    Sure. Nothing’s wrong with hemp – and I’m familliar with the sordid DuPont story behind the national ban. My point was about the trend toward requring biodegradable, reusable sacks at many grocery stores. Tongue firmly planted in cheek, I imagined a day when pill bottles would be replaced with the same sort of “eco-friendly” green nonsense. I mentioned hemp, because liberals are rabid over hemp products. I find the obsession amusing. Seems I’m spot on and pushed the right button.

    • Rob N. Hood

      Why is that so silly? You like huge landfills everywhere? I drive by the one in Mora frequently and the damn thing stinks to high heaven. The only nonsense is your post. Consider that you are the one with an “issue” about it.

  • Paul Wenum

    Jesse liked hemp. It is amusing by the way.

  • Rob N. Hood

    You guys really like your heads in that sand, except when the word “Liberal” reaches your ears, and then you respond like Pavlov’s dog. Good doggie…

  • paul wenum

    I use liberal when I eat. Want a liberal portion!

  • Rob N. Hood

    Neil…!! Paul need some help.
