Re: Uncomfortable Theory

Interesting idea but I'm not sure I'm a buyer.

Oh I am. Look at the teachers’ strikes now in solid red states. They didn’t all spontaneously break out at once, as the pay scales and mistreatment might hve suggested they do. [more]

If your religious institution wants to make life easier for couples in your "tribe" that want children then shouldn't it be providing services that make that easier? The obvious service would be child care. Both men and women of the [more]

Ah. Well, OK.

I don’ think either of us is suggesting your change to electric, just that your install cost sounds really really high.

Re: Hot Water -

I don’t know what gas costs, but our electric was replaced for about $800. That’s for a 50 gallon. Big box store, HD contractor. Zip zip, a couple hours, done.

Re: LA Times: What Good Would $3 Billion do TSLA

People (banks, investment firms, pension funds) will gladly lend Tesla as much money as it needs to get this whole process sped up. Once the Fremont factory is humming along, how long before he builds a second one?

Re: Rock Stars Against Seattle City Council

But the bottom line is that they hate cars and aim to make the city as miserable and expensive a place to drive as they can.

Re: Smoke, mirrors and drugs

Corruption is so systemic in DC, I don't know how we will ever clean it out.

China has the right idea. Occasional use of the death penalty. It won’t clean out all of it, of course but at least it will get their attention.
