From the front page of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

From The Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Energy efficiency is on the mind of every homeowner, but the same could be said of Uncle Sam.
Officials at Naval Air Station Fort Worth are increasingly embracing greener initiatives to reduce electricity, gas, water and fuel consumption and use alternative energy sources.

Here's the picture that accompanied the article.  It's one of the green, wholesome electric cars (highly subsidized, I'm sure) that are now running all over Carwell Air Force Base.  (Carswell AFB is the military installation that protects Fort Worth from sneak attacks by Oklahoma.)
These go-carts are manufactured by Daimler-Chrysler, which is now owned by Obama/Reid/Pelosi and the UAW. 

Is there anyone out there who doesn't think this picture is hilarious? 

This is one of my all-time favorite meaningless symbolic gestures.  The boys at Carswell take the mega-planes up once or twice a week, just for the hell of it as far as I can tell, and totally negate any and all justification for these little Tonka Toys.  More fuel is consumed on takeoff...aww...never mind.    
I'd pay $100 for a picture of General Patton going across Europe in one of these.  
This has had me in a good mood all day.

By golly, why can't they just tool around in Ford F-150's like everyone else in North Texas?

I like how you went old school and called it 'Carswell'. I wonder if they are using those little green carts to tote the prisoners around on the federal pen side of the place?
