    George Will wipes hands clean of Republican party

    Yup redster, for the NEA educated and never learned any history, Mr. Will also came out against Ronald Reagan. Why redster, that was in 1979, 37 years ago for you. So this longtime conservative is a not quite so longtime conservative. He is just another RINO, I stopped reading his columns long ago.

    Regards

    I agree. One should take advantage of market dislocations, obviously the flight to safety has dropped interest rates and driven up the price of gold. So one further kernel, if you have gold, sell it now and buy it back later.

    The only loan I have is my home mortgage, and the interest is so low that I simply keep it high so I can invest the money. Farm? Paid off. Condos? Paid off. Car? 8 years old and paid off. Time shares? Paid off. So OK, the wife wanted a new $3K fridge and Home Depot offered 12 month financing, no interest, so I took it. Why not? Free money.

    But yes, take advantage of the low interest rates and lock them in. With the Feds printing presses running overtime, sooner or later we will be Greece and 35% interest rates.

    Regards

    Dear racist jake, you are on of the dumbest f**ks to ever come over the transom. How does one double the efficiency of something that is already over 60% efficient? Oh, I get it, you going to have Congress pass a law to negate the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Yup, racist jake, that will fix it.

    Well seesaw, for the record, I worked for BP, left them in 1991 after 17 years. Never worked in the oil, gas or chemicals, but in the aerospace division. There I learned to apply theoretical thermodynamics. And because we did government contracting I learned all about the military and NASA. I held a high respect for military contracting, NASA, not so much.

    So get off of your high horse, I don't work for an oil company.

    Regards

    Dear BFD, let me state again, and again, and again, do not confuse cost with price. That is liberals favorite confusing tactic. They don't match. And never will. Electronics for instance have a cost of about 5-10% of price. Commodities have a much lower spread. So the work of a marketing person is to figure out where they are in the market and set the price accordingly. I know, I was director of marketing at one time. That is the second most difficult determination of that job.

    Regards

    Oh seesaw, you are so misinformed. NASA has an open mind? Yup, like Feynman had to do a public demonstration on the seal material to show they screwed up on the Challenger accident. Still wondering as to how their composite piston program worked out for the deep space probes. (Think about that one for a minute or two.) And finally, what stating results as they are. They only release manipulated data, never the raw data, you know seesaw, which is required for peer review.

    And seesaw, put this in your pipe and smoke it, as you must be smoking something, there are now 94M Americans without jobs yet barry tells us unemployment is 5%. Oh wait, you had common core NEA training.

    Regards

    Bill

    So racist jake, NASA is out of the space business for incompetence and private launch companies are taking over. What makes you think they know more about climate change?

    Regards

    Bill

  • william_tarasen william_tarasen Jun 24, 2016 10:58 AM Flag

    Dear racist jake, I see you believe in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, and Santa Clause. Reading government reports is like reading books on golf, you need to read a lot to realize they are useless, much less believed.

    So I guess Toyota was blowing smoke when they indicated that H2 is sold for $16 per KG. Funny, that's the same price I used to pay.

    Yeah Redster, I am only quoting barry from his book "Dreams of My Father". Are you calling him a liar for producing a faked birth certificate? Or are you calling him a liar in his book? Please explain. Of course you never will, you are just as much a p**Y as barry is, after all he was the consummate male friend who was paid with drugs. Come on redster, get a life and realize reality.

    What a dumb gullible idiot.

    Well Racist Jake, I do not represent wall street in any way, but I do agree, connecting two dead dogs does not make a team. Both solar and electric cars are going to have to make a market correction based on reality and the fact that the government mandates a going to impact both. Yup, I sold short. It's a dead dog, only sealing it's death by purchasing a solar company.

    Why redster, that's almost as much as Soros funded agitators against Trump in the past few months.

    As to what lies Obama or HilLIARy ever told. Let's start with "If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance." and move on to "I was born in Kenya.", how about "It was a tape.", oh wait, the last one goes to both HilLIARY and barry. And for HilLIARy, "I read the WSJ." when explaining her making $100K trading cattle futures. For the NEA educated or uninterested journalists, cattle futures are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade, and the WSJ seldom if ever has anything on commodities other than closing prices on a data page. And the Clintons never even had a subscription to the WSJ. How about "All e-mails have been turned over to the State Department."? Redster, I could go one for hours. It would be far easier for you to attempt to tell us when they did tell the truth.

    Regards

    Oh wait seesaw, I just came across an item where barry did tell the truth. He said he would stand with muslims against America. WOW, how true. What do you have to say???

    I see again that the liberal org has chosen to attack those who would oppose them.. How typical, written in barry's friend's Bill Ayers "Rules for Radicals, you recall, the killer bomber, who used nails in his bombs as he was trying to destroy property. Glad to see you are an adherent. No word from you about the Soros funded groups and their terrorist activities. QED.

    Ah, I see seesaw that you cannot name a fact, but make an innuendo. Typical liberal. Cannot answer a question, make something up or attack the person pointing out your failures to even know anything. Good go seesaw, proving once again your failures.

    Well seesaw, the world uses about 95M bbls per day, but a lot of that goes into plastics, you know the stuff that environmentalists claim doesn't degrade. I call that sequestering.

    Der BFD, I have been saying the price is around $16 for years, the only reason it isn't higher is that the price of nat gas is at multiyear lows. But a little math tells me a driver would be paying $0.25 per mile for fuel costs That is about 2.5X what my wife's MB SUV costs to drive. And that actually a fairly large vehicle, probably weighs twice as much.

    Regards

  • Seems 18 state's AGs are going to file suits against pro global warming advocates for over stating their claims. Which will be easy to prove. All they have to do is show littleal's video. So the left has tried to shut down non-believers by threatening to sue, now the shoe is on the other foot. I love it. Conservatives using the power of government against the liberals. Which is another turn around.

    wind hidden costs -

    I always love to hear about someone walking the street. That is a good sign you are getting "REAL" information, not something racist jake spews from media matters. Do you recall ever seeing the guy with the bow tie on CNBC years ago when they were actually a financial news channel? Jim Roger's favorite comment was that he didn't listen to what they said, he watched what they did, and as such he would take year long trips around the world, made billions. I always admired the man, and I seldom invest without doing some investigation personally.

    As to the dating of the old towers, few date back to the 70's as stupid Jimmie's tax breaks didn't kick in until after he left office. For those like racist jake, who are NEA educated, that would be in the early 80's. But we are quibbling about details, I drive, not fly, around the country. Not that I keep count, but I don't doubt for a moment the 14,000 number. When we were signing the agreement for the placement of windmills on our farm, our number one concern is who is going to take them down after the company goes broke or they simply become inoperable. Either one is going to happen.. But fortunately, the state of ND has insurance laws which require a policy to insure that point. Do I dare say they are ahead of CA??? 20,000,000 fricken liberals in CA and they can't think of EOL impacts? Shameful.

    But finally, liberals cannot prove a clear path to economical power production from wind power without significant subsidies. I can prove such a path with NatGas, even at the low price of commercial power, which is why investors are still active in that market.

    Regards

    Bill
