A Modest Proposal- Ghost Ride that Whip


With the current concern about global worming, carbon emotion from cars and the use of natural gas, I have decided to write a satirical piece on how to solve the problem of carbon emission from cars.  This will also help with reducing the speed of global warming.  I call my plan “return back to our original American roots”.  The Amish have it just right.  Instead of cars, we should go back to using horse and buggy.  It is practically a car.  It gets you from point A to point B.  It might take you a little longer to get to places, but hey don’t we all want a healthy planet.  But if you really want speed, you can bread thoroughbred horses to get you there quick.  Forget horse racing, lets do horse and buggy racing.  We wont be needing gas, just carrots.  A lot of carrots.  For those of you who are worried that people will not recognize you high status because you are riding in a horse and buggy, don’t worry.  You can get a hummer attached to a horse.  In fact you can get any type of car attached to a horse.  Your high class appearance will remain intact.  For those of you who are all about animal rights and claim that the horses will be over worked.  Well would you rather have over worked humans or over worked horses, better yet, would you rather have an over worked atmosphere or over worked horses.  And for those of you who are not yet convinced, we can arrange a very modest retirement plan for the horses, if they survive till retirement.  Now to all you teenage boys who don’t want so sacrifice the wind in your hair as you zip down the highway with your big loud engines,  just buy a thoroughbred, pimp out your wagon and ghost ride that whip!

  1. As they are more labor intensive to raise and breed, it will boost the economy as well!

    Or, if the economy still needs a jolt, more rickshaws, bicycle taxis or other forms of human-powered transport.

    WE could save oil for things we will need more longer term like plastics, pharamceuticals, and chemicals…
