The metric system vs. the U.S. system. I have looked all over the Internet and it is
really hard to find a page that is all for converting to the metric system. I feel the
same way I think that our way is fine it will be to confusing for a lot of people to
figure it out. Things are working fine now why do anything to change it. There are
problems that would occur if we changed, there are good things.

If we changed the system of measurement that would change everything and that would be
difficult for the older people who are unable to remember how to convert to the metric
system.

They decided that it was not a good idea to go to the metric system because, then they
would have to change everything and that would cost trillions of dollars to do so they
decided to stick with the way that the U.S. has always used. That was about twenty years
ago. I think that was a good idea because there are so many things that are so accustomed
to this way.

They have changed some things around like engines so that they can be sold all over the
world. The companies that have changed are Koehler and Briggs and Striations. Koehler has
changed over completely over to the metric way so that they are able to make more by
having the ability to be sold everywhere. I think that that is a wonderful thing to do and
I am sure that the profits are showing an increase because of it. It had to be really
costly to make all of the changes to

There machines that make the engines and I think that they are so happy that they made
those changes. The Briggs and Striations havenít completely converted yet and they are
having lots of problems selling to the rest of the world, when they are not designed to be
worked on in all areas of the world. I think that they will make it so that it is easier
to be worked on in other countries but I donít think that they will change it completely
because they donít want to give in completely to that market then they may be losing out
on some of the things here that they should be focusing on.

I like the fact that we are making these wonderful things for others but I hope that we
donít lose sight of the fact that we donít have to change things around for this country.
We will always use the U.S. system no matter how much changes it because that is the way
that we do things here, everyone isnít making changes to suite the other countries. I hope
that it stays that way for a long time.

Those are just a few things that would be affected and there are so many more, would you
like to be the one to blame if this went wrong. I think that there is way too much at
risk, and there is no sense in bothering something that works rather well already. So
think that they should just leave well enough alone.
