What will these morons come up with next? Of course I'm sure they will get a big fat grant from the government to create "green jobs" or whatever these fools can think of.

Sounds pretty smart to me. Why would a company not want to save on energy costs?

I'm guessing all you fools drive hybrid's thinking your saving money too. Oh and the planet. You go to your moonbat store and pay higher prices so your carts can charge a AAA battery.

I don't understand why you are so angry at the idea that a shopping cart could generate energy to power the store it's being pushed around in. It's actually a pretty ingenious idea.

Who will want to push harder on a shopping cart when you can just grab someone else's cart without that extra drag? They would do better putting solar panels on the parking lot. More power and cooler cars from the shade....DUH?

The average human is lucky to push with 1/4 horsepower. One horsepower is 746 Watts so you will need a lot of customers running around pushing carts to even power one refrigeration unit. Oh and I forgot that most electric devices are less than 80% efficient. Get real, people!

You know, as a social democrat I disagree with conservatives, particularly Christian fundamentalist conservatives, on virtually every issue.

However, I always attempt to maintain a modicum of respect when debating them. Debates should never devolve into ad hominem attacks, into immature and childish name-calling no matter how much you disagree. Name-calling makes it so no one will take you seriously, it undermines intelligent debate, it demeans the intelligence of those participating. It shows that you aren't interested in actually conversing, in intellectual debate. It shows that you are only interested in insulting people, that you lack the fortitude to stand up and maturely defend your positions like an adult. I guess my point is that the inclusion of a term like 'moonbat' in your title ensured that I wasn't going to take you seriously or have any real respect before you and that was even before you overgeneralized and referred to an entire group of people as morons. Grow up.
