Less Government = More Freedom

Last week I ran out of gas, and had to hike three blocks for a two gallon can of gas. I had a couple of 1-liter power-aid bottles and a 20 ounce coke bottle. I could have hiked there with 2 or 3 power aid bottles, and hiked back. used the coke bottle with the bottom cut out as a funnel .


I had to use a DOT approved container. IE a $12.00 red container. I could have stood for that.


The spout on the can leaked extensively. I later had to wash the fuel from the side of the fender.

If I'd used the power aid bottles, disposed of them, that's all right, but the 'approved' container actually wasted fuel and harmed the environment.

Government... Who needs it?
