BTW, in my opinion Holder is obviously crooked.
What would you expect from a system that has a revolving door policy where banksters work for the Fed and government and then like musical chairs change places?
That's like Al Capone investigating himself..... It also reminds me of Sergeant Shultz's "I see nothing!"
You may be right. Often there's a lengthy delay for my posts to show up. I'm excited to know that what I write is causing someone(s) some grief. They obviously have the throttling of information at heart.
That said, why don't you just tell us what the deal is with electrical power consumption? My guess is it declining for a number of reasons, but primarily due to the contracting economy.
We do some e-commerce and it has slowed to a trickle.
The courage that you speak of has largely been distilled and drawn away with only a trace remaining in the American people. In days gone by it was honorable to settle matters with dueling (like the belated removal of the traitor Hamilton by Aaron Burr) and then (owing to devolution) by fisticuffs, which in the latter instance offered both a potential resolution and an opportunity to actually acquire a new friend—it happened for me several times as I went from adolescence to manhood.
Infantry, for example, means foot soldiers, ostensibly men (and now women) with rifles. Infantry now have armored Humvees and Bradley Fighting Vehicles from which to fight. Think of it as mobile cover and no need to brazenly rush and overwhelm a position as was once done.
Knowing that, and knowing, too, that no political solution exists, I wonder what/how this will ultimately play out and, of course, how soon.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, announced Wednesday that the company is working on a new kind of battery that would be used to power homes. Based on Tesla’s lithium-ion battery technology, the new battery is expected to help the company become a leader in the growing home energy-storage market.
Speaking during an earnings conference call on Wednesday, Musk said that the design of the battery is complete, and production would begin in about six months. Although the company did not provide any date for the product's launch, Musk said that he was pleased with the result.
“We are going to unveil the Tesla home battery, the consumer battery that would be for use in people’s houses or businesses fairly soon,” Bloomberg quoted Musk as saying.
During an earnings call last year, Musk had talked about his plans to make a product that would be fitted into consumers’ homes, instead of their cars. He had expressed an interest in the home energy-storage market and predicted enormous demand for battery systems for backup power at both homes and businesses.
“We are trying to figure out what would be a cool stationary (battery) pack,” Forbes had quoted Musk as saying at the time. “Some will be like the Model S pack: something flat, 5 inches off the wall, wall mounted, with a beautiful cover, an integrated bi-directional inverter, and plug and play.”
The Palo Alto, California-based automaker already produces residential energy-storage units through SolarCity Corp., a solar-power company that names Musk as its chairman and the biggest shareholder. In addition, Tesla’s Fremont, California, facility also produces large stationary storage systems for businesses and utility clients, Bloomberg reported.
“The long-term demand for stationary energy storage is extraordinary,” JB Straubel, Tesla’s chief technical officer, said. “We’ve put in a huge amount of effort there."
Ahhhh.... but that "solution" only compounds the problem building to an even larger and more dramatic crescendo. The can they keep kicking is quite bent up and is showing stress fractures.
Let's replace all those politicians, regulators and especially central banks with NOTHING. Then we can breathe the free air. I am capable of self-governance. Are you not?
That's a lot of gold. Maybe it really is time for the markets to reimpose a gold standard.
Push it down Barry's throat, Vlad.
I read a hit piece on the Daily Beast a bit ago. It seems that the tax rebate to possibly issue in Colorado has nothing to do with pot sales revenues. They're whining about ONLY bringing in $44 million... money that they wouldn't have otherwise collected.
I think it's criminal that they think $44 million is an insufficient amount of new tax money they have collected.
With the tax rate as high as it is on "legal" sales, the black market is still flourishing. That's what government interference in the marketplace actually does it creates aberrations. Obviously, it is still profitable to sell untaxed pot.
I only point this out as there seems to be a backlash brewing and there will undoubtedly be some additional fallout.
