You thoroughly ignore the unhealthy aspect of crowded city life with its barren buildings, sterile garish colors and mind-numbing advertising in every direction... not to mention the hostility to small children and animals - pet and other...... cities are horrid living conditions... the simple absence of leafy environments reduces intelligence and makes for tormented energies.... And worst of all, you seem to think that machine agriculture is the way to get decent food... wrong... we need to be more wholesome in our proportion of lifetimes spent on manual and animal care, whether habitat or farm... Stossel is at least right in the idea that bureaucrats favor concentration of their victims, as we've seen in the clear split between county employees that facilitate what people desire to accomplish and those who simply are dictocratic thugs... the thugs favor the sewer systems that demand concentrated living to make them even close to economically doable (never mind the insanity of the pollution problems they cause) and attempt with every fiber of their being to obstruct locals trying to do composting toilets and greywater wetlands.... and 'health' department is just one example among many... Your solution violates human rights, unlike Stossel's who at the least recognizes that people should have the right to choose their 'poisons' and be intelligent enough to monitor the effects and take care of the consequences including changing course.... that's what it means to be a free people... and judging by the results of city living, the ultimate path is not there for many or for long so sustainability thinking demands the cities be expected (not legislated) to be of limited size and use... ttyl

You want guts and leadership, as well as insight into foreign entanglements, go read that classic by the US Marine Maj General Smedley Darlington Butler -- War is a Racket -- and then tell yourself you really should revise your opinion on US entanglements, since Butler served in all ranks from 2nd Lt to Maj Gen and held sway militarily for US interests on three continents. Learn from him and then you'll see why the Senator Paul's leadership is the right one. ttyl
So we should look for competing 'groups' of oligarchs -- among the controllers of banking, drug (dealing/delivery/manufacturing) resources, media, and real estate -- so that we might be ID-them and be able to use each side to damage the other in their CEO and government corrupting activities... lots to think about... ttyl

Wanna suggestion on the concurrence in political opponents with the curiously mundane nametag of "infrastructure" being attached to highprice, speed, bigcity travel that would be unsensible for people-in-the-street....??? The big boys and the rich elite are tired of getting sexually groped and molested and don't have the nerve to stand up to the HHS authorities and Obama and shut the pertverts down.... If they'd stand on their hind legs and free the airports, the bigcity highspeed, big ticket price on transport need would go away... of course it would make it less feasible to play terrorist-mindgames on us AT WILL when their scandals reach boiling point... ttyl

Any enforcement of an invalid law is actually a violation of the constitution, so ANY ENFORCER WHO GOES IN WITH A GUN AND THREATS OF VIOLENCE IS A VIOLENT CRIMINAL AT THE START... whether the victim is/was or not let's just say it.. no more just 'wondering' if the police are too militarized... the POLICE HAVE BEEN CONVERTED TO VIOLENT THUGS WHENEVER THEY STEP OUT TO ENFORCE A LAW THAT IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL IN THE SERVICE OF THE ELITE WHO VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION IN MAKING SUCH A LAW and turned otherwise LAW-ABIDING CITIZENRY INTO THUGS As the world validated after WWII, there is no excuse in saying you were just following orders by superiors... and banning alcohol REQUIRED AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION TO BAN A SUBSTANCE

Obviously all the vaunted surveillance didn't make anyone safer... end of DOD/NSA lying.. they have no credibility AND INSTEAD HAVE SHOWN THEIR TRUE COLORS AS VIOLATORS OF THEIR OATHS... End them, ALL OF THEM.. ttyl
The reason electric (more than half COAL's FAULT) is still high IS NOT THAT IT SHOULD BE HIGH... the electric industry is protected by utilities commissions and they WASTE MASSIVE NIGHTTIME ASSETS, that WE WOULD HUGELY BENEFIT FROM.. night assets are nearly HALF OF WHAT WE PAY FOR, YET DON"T GET **ANY** BENEFIT FROM... b/c COAL IS LAZY IN MANAGING.. As for the price tag on the carbon fiber technology, the geometry of the designs, simplification of the production costs makes up for the price of the materials.. AMORY LOVINS EVEN GAVE AWAY THE PATENT OPPORTUNITIES, YET THE CORRUPTED LAZY AUTO INDUSTRY STONEWALLED OUR OPPORTUNITY FOR SAFER CARS THAT USED WASTED ASSETS... blast detroit... ttyl
Wrong, the free market would have allowed this to be a regional affair since some electric companies have massively wasted capacity at night and that would favor TIME OF DAY RATES that would have FAVORED COAL PLANTS OVER NG and given COAL NEW LIFE.. in the GREEN WORLD where the likes of Obama couldn't mess with our coal.. Meanwhile those buying the Volt and other electrics would have saved our foreign policy dependence on OIL/MOSLEMS... can't you get the players straight...??
Maybe in your area's electric rates, but here in SWOhio, Duke specifically, the more you charge the better the rates, (THE MORE TIERS THE BETTER) so that price per charge gets better... some areas were suckered by their electric company REGULATORS because the REALLY big corporate users all suck you dry, day after day, meanwhile you benefit zilch... THAT'S WHY THE CHOICE OF CARS IS REGIONALLY DIFFERENT AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN SO RECOGNIZED, not using phony national-averages like whatever-his-name-is (Ransome too) was doing.. WE NEED REGIONAL SOLUTIONS..
