Scams, Fraud Flourish in Solar Still

Bottom Line is that electricity produced by solar or wind costs 4 to 7 times as much as electricity produced from conventional sources. Take your last month's utility bill, multiply it by 12 to get a full year, and then multiply it by 4 to see what the minimum cost will be as we add more windmills and solar panels.

I found out today that a treadmills at Golds Gym will generate as much electricity as a solar panel and it is more dependable because you can jog on cloudy days and at night. It would also help to alleviate the obesity problem. Our Democrat town supervisor is applying for a $5.5 million grant to install treadmills on the roof of our library and take down these ridiculous solar panels.

As most people in the northeast realized this winter, solar panels don't work too well under a foot of snow and we had at least a foot on the roof from around Christmas until the end of March. They also don't work on cloudy days or at night. As long as you can go without electricity nights, cloudy days and most of the winter, these things don't make sense.
If we appointed Nancy Pelosi as Minister to Russia, that would be better than any sanction. America would be better off; Russia would be a head case in no time.
In his latest and strongest sanction so far, Obama has revoked the passports of 11 Soviet ministers to Disneyland.
I hope Romney is not thinking of running again. Holding the accomplishment of losing to the worst president in history should tell you something. Next time, when Romney does not have Obama or Obamacare to run against, even more Republicans will stay home. Anyone who can get elected governor of Massachusetts is no Republican.
" .... her achievements in eight years as first lady and U.S. senator, and four years as secretary of state ..." Ahhhh ...... which achievements would those be???? As Secretary of State she left the world in more turmoil than we have had since the beginning of WWII. Seems like everybody is shooting at everyone else, building a bomb, engaging in terrorism, .... America is roundly hated or laughed at everywhere.

Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Onyango have been protesting the Income Inequality in America. They feel that it is unjust that they live in taxpayer subsidized housing in Boston, receive Food Stamps and social services checks while they have a multi-millionaire nephew who constantly takes vacations all over the world.
With hundreds of satellites in the sky, military radar, civilian radar, radar on ships and other planes, they tracked all of this from the start. They just don't want to give al Qaeda credit for downing a passenger plane which they have been threatening to do in retaliation for Obama's unmanned drone program.
The Malaysian passenger plane disappeared the same day that the trial of Osama bin Laden's son in law and al Qaeda leader started in NYC - coincidence?? The passenger plane was proceeding to Beijing with no apparent problems when a military jet came at it from a right angle and shot it down with an air to air missile that destroyed everything that would float. The normal transponders went dead but apparently a transmitter mounted on the engines that pinged operational data to Rolls Royce continued to ping for hours but sent no operational data. From then on, they tracked the military plane as it flew high, flew low, turned right, turned left and took other evasionary tactics that passenger planes cannot perform.

It is difficult to believe, but it seems that the goal of all these "Environmental" groups is to drive the economy of the U.S. into the wastebasket, which Obama seems to be doing well enough on his own. They attack oil drilling, natural gas drilling, coal mining, nuclear power and even dams that create hydro-electric power. They must know that solar panels and windmills produce electricity that is 4 to 6 times more expensive than conventional methods and don't work when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing. Who wants their utility bill to go up by 6 times and how are our manufacturers going to produce competitive products?
