Wind & solar power harvesting in any efficiency requires using tools and technology that consume large amounts of energy as well as strategic materials. Wind is good for sailboats and windmills which pump small amounts of water. Solar heats water very effectively and cheaply. It also can be used in solar ovens in remote areas to cook food in small batches. All else is net negative for energy and viability. Maybe someday, but not anytime soon.

The Biden Standard of Media Bias

A previous VP once referred to the office of Vice President being as useful and desireable as a "warm bucket of spit". Thus, Biden is emminently qualified to hold the office.
The candidate counts first then the party sponsoring that candidate. The opposition party rarely pursues the goals of your candidate of choice. For that reason alone, and this is coming from a republican with strong libertarian leanings, the notion of handing the next election to the D party in order to somehow punish the R party is moronic. Libertarians who think that conservatives will find common cause with them by effectively electing - and reelecting - Democrats to office are hubrists. Get with the program and you will have a chance to persuade others to your point of view. Continue on your futile course and you will remain the stupid branch of the D party.
Isn't Vermont the home of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream?? Does the term cognitive dissonance come to mind for this madness?

Obama's Unnecessary, Unpromising War

And when the USA is attacked - again - by Alqaida/ISIS/ISIL/whoever will the NYT and Mr. Chapman issue an apology? No one wants an unending war. The problem is the small matter of what ends it. Mr. Chapman is voting for US and Western capitulation. Not me, not mine, never.
Who are the 53% that feel we are safer today as a result of the Dear Leader's leadership? And, who are the 32% that remain confident in this administration's ability to "to a good job"? Such polls are fabrications. We are in trouble and it's getting worse every week with such fools in positions of power.

Both nature and power hungry despotic regimes abhor a vacuum. The vacuum created by the Dear Leader's feckless and juvenile "policy" has been filled by the worst players in the international terror games. And, four of ten of our fellow citizens remain loyal to the Dear Leaderr & his minions. Cannon fodder for the impending conflict.
Pragmatism is a hard sell when elections are near. I remain skeptical about such grand bargains when union participation is one of the cornerstones.

IF, and it is a capital IF, the republican senatorial candidates actually promulgate republican/conservative principles in the legislation they craft it will be a pleasure to behold. They must all accept the absolute fact that the Dear Leader is without scruples, principles, and desire to co-operate with anyone other than his far left sycophants. "Getting along" must be put on hiatus until this huckster and his minions are gone in 2016.
What level of self-delusion is required to believe anything that the Dear Leader and his minions say? Hucksters, charlatans, film flam artists, and all around reprobates - the lot of them.
