You are funny, I'm in Ma, in a town where the average income is double the states average, where pretty much everyone is liberal. They pretty much all have the SUV's and minivans, in the winter picking up their kids they leave these things running so they can stay warm, in the summer. They leave them running to stay cool. They do not walk a quarter mile to the convenience store, they drive and they leave the kids in the car with the engine running as they go in. They take their kids to practice, then sit in their running cars on their frigging phones the entire time.
