Re: 100% renewables

Why is it punitive, rather than simply fair, to make people clean up their own messes? Instead of making others clean it up?

Fair enough. Though it is hard to figure out now much "their own messes" cost. How much in terms of [more]

Re: My question for Hillary

But, fine with me! I want Bernie. (Second choice would not be Clinton, it would be O'Malley from what I've read thus far. Clinton would be third choice).

And Bernie can [more]

Re: Shower leak

I agree with Lakedog. If the ceiling already has water damage you may as well cut a hole because it will need to be replaced anyway. Cut the ceiling and start looking for the source.

Re: 100% renewables

Yes, but the key problem was something which we shouldn't care about. Cost. Can any of this be cheaper than coal? Not without punitive taxation on carbon/coal, no it can't. Certainly not with present technology.

But so what? Coal is [more]

Re: The Slave Trade & Obama Administration,

Actually, I think McCain was the bigger threat to Obama than Romney. Had McCain not swung so far right and not picked Palin he very well could have won. And Obama would likely still be a senator.

I don't think Romney ever had a credible [more]

Re: I Think I Need A New Laptop

I'd rather connect hardware via wifi than via cables.

If you're going mobile that makes sense. Want to wander around with your laptop, it's the only way to go.

For my fixed desktop unit I prefer cabling, even though it is [more]

Obama has my confidence except when I see Elizabeth Warren in strong opposition. Then I believe she is most likely to be right.

Re: Building a House for Dummies

FWIW, when we built our house I posted frequent updates here. Search for "starting from dirt". It's back around 2005-6 or so.

May be totally unhelpful. But it should capture the chronology of what was going on.

Re: The Slave Trade & Obama Administration,

Only history will tell.

These trade deals have never worked out well for the US. Jobs, even entire industries, vanish from our shores every time we do one. History has already informed us, we're just not listening.

Re: got salmon?

Plus they were saying the drought is making some of their rivers not traversable. And some of the spawning pools are too low or even completely dry.

Probably on NPR but I don't recall now. Heard that about a week ago.

Re: Obama lashes out at ridiculous Repugs

Excellent point. It's not so much the moronic politicians that are scary (though they are), it's that they have enough support among the masses to achieve positions of power in a democracy.

OK...a slight overstatement on my part, but it's a step in the correct direction. It does imply all fundies are mentally ill.

Re: Huckabee sinks to a new low

I think it safe to say that this deal does not make it easier for Iran to develop the weapon. They are probably within striking distance (no pun intended) of having one now.

If it gets delayed by 10 years, that's a benefit to us.
