    Actually you demonstrate a profound ignorance of market function and most especially market efficiency.

    Study up an try to come back.

    More Star Wars myths,

    In a Jon Stewart galaxy a long time ago,

    Palin and Biden were running.

    Not a clearly corrupt and felonious Hillary against an exceptionally strong field of Republicans.

    Good Dr. Carson walked into and spoke to Tare Sharpie's Action Net Work. Spoke over and above some booing.

    This is the sort of character we need in American leadership.

    Not you silly myths and then turning around and slurring homosexual Americans.

    Good Dr Carson is nothing like you.

    Actually gpd, the entire OLD troop was invited to watch the excellent and free Hillsdale series on the Federalist Papers and Constitution.

    So that you might be closer to the condition of an informed poster. But clearly every Progressive here made a choice to be base emotive rather than Enlightened. Then in a condition of clear willful ignorance, attempt to be a bully.

    Which is of course a knuckle dragging combination. Best it can do is try to disrupt the discussions of adults.

    The more immediate question is who is running the ultra powerful IRS. Which admitted it targeted ordinary Americans for political speech. Then Justice refused to prosecute Learner.

    But then Obama with his Grubering about Obamacare did set the example for all the clearly corrupt Progressive operators in our government. Bald faced lie about families saving $2,500 a year.

    Look the critical first step is to reform the corporate tax code. Take out all the Progressive special interest goodies. As Progressives claim the average effective rates is 12%, we could therefore should lower the marginal rate to 12% with no loop holes.

    It would mean no more insane base load wind mills and solar panels. Which is great as electricity rates are going up despite the crash in coal and ngas prices. Also it is no destabilizing the soundness of our electrical grid. Plus natural gas is cleaner.

    Congress also needs to take back from the EPA all the Unconstitutional authority it is abusing. the American people decide what our priorities are and what the Just balance is. Not a bunch of Grubering extremists who view the rest of humanity as excess.


    Now there are growing signs that lower crude prices are finally prompting American energy companies to cut back their crude output. North Dakota said earlier this week that output from the Bakken Shale—one of the newest and most prolific shale-oil fields—declined in February for the second month in a row.

    The federal Energy Department predicted this week that two of the three booming oil fields—the Bakken and the Eagle Ford in South Texas—would post decreases in April and May, though it forecast that a third big oil field, the Permian Basin in West Texas, would keep expanding. The agency’s weekly tally of all U.S. crude production shows declines in two of the last three weeks.

    "though it forecast that a third big oil field, the Permian Basin in West Texas, would keep expanding".

    Folks should keep in mind this is the Obama government and also the 22 rig drop in the Permian count.

    Well Oliverbur you would say so from a condition of smug willful ignorance.

    Do you have any point or just another Progressive having an emotional temper tantrum?

    Washington Farewell Address has a condition to those who would claim the title American Patriot?
    Do you know what it is?

    Just what the board needs. Yet one more Progressive marm.

    Still, there are positive economic signs Walker relies on to defend his record. Wisconsin’s unemployment rate has dropped from 8.1 percent to 5 percent over his time in office. The state has seen a higher rate of new businesses starting than the rest of the country and income growth for Wisconsin residents has exceeded the national average.

    Per capita income growth in Wisconsin exceeded per capita American income growth.

    Home starts and prices are doing better than the nation as well.

    Heavily reliant on manufacturing, Wisconsin has perennially lagged the nation in job creation and, under previous governors, often used fiscal tricks to paper over budget deficits. Walker vowed to change that when he ran in 2010. His most renowned move, just six weeks into his first term in 2011, was to curtail public unions’ collective bargaining power while also forcing them to pay more for pension and health care benefits.

    Reso perhaps you mean well. But Wisconsin badly required reform. The government unions were sucking the last blood out of the real manufacturing economy.

    Walker did not beat back the full might of the Democratic Party in a blue state for now reason.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Apr 16, 2015 6:48 PM Flag

    Look Reso,

    The good people of Nevada would have done so. Which is the only reason Reid is vaingloriously bragging about his false honour games to empower Obama.

    What I do know is America and Canada have all the natural gas required for twenty generations+.
    Base load wind and solar panels are the most irrational delusion. Given what free enterprise and private property have delivered in just natural gas.

    Of course Progressive claimed the whole time it was impossible. So we should not let enterprising Americans prove us wrong with their own money.

    Yet still Progressive demand all three for your primitive religion. Forcing fellow Americans at punishing cost into this insane end of days religion with self admitted pointless 'investment' in wind, solar ethanol.

    Obama polices followed the Progressive game plan. Gruber and obfuscate so that even cleanest of all natural gas is artificially expensive and/or the supply is unstable.

    At this point Americans could be busy drilling natural gas for export. Making good money and diminishing the power of Putin and the Aryan mullah of Iran, among many others.

    If business was not threatened by the Progressive capricious abuse of law to impose the wind mill and ethanol insanity, ngl processing would be coming on line right now. Displacing China and every other competitor based on low cost inputs and the most efficient designs.

    Special Interest pays the most for powerful government. One which can impose and then sustain corn ethanol, is clearly to large and to powerful. Or one which blocks export of ng and does not demand additional investment. So chemical companies can sustain above market profits on old tired plant and equipment.

    Walker did discover conservative voters are aware of the corn ethanol mandate corruption. Some day was not an acceptable answer. The days of ratatter are coming to an end.

    As result if seems to be Rubio's. Yes, Americans are tired of abusive government.

    OT Mad Who and Jon Stewart

    Yet the Daily Show just had to do the routine one more time. No shadows.

    "to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best."

    Here Washington has summed up the Good connecting American Faith. Change the He to God and the libertines are still going to have tantrums.

    A libertine who really believes without thought, that human 'experts' can deliver good government, peace and concord. That some how knowledge is a true religion which makes personal virtue irrelevant.

    So deluded that public display of personal buffoonery is some how connected to the ancient comedy format, absent the wit.

    Aristophanes 6th century and Jon Stewart have much in common. Same format and subjects.

    Oh would some god, with sudden stroke,
    Convert me to a cloud of smoke!
    Like politicians’ words I’d rise
    In gaseous vapour to the skies.
    (50, Act One, Scene One, The Wasps by Aristophanes)

    See what Mad Who means? Some how Jon has made the same theme, often funny over the eons. It must be exhausting. No wonder he is retiring to Florida.

    First segment excellent. The second was a well rutted routine.

    Herbert Hoover was a big time Progressive. Truly brilliant. But not humbled enough it would seem.

    Our diversified religious faiths are the apotheosis of spiritual individualism." -- American Individualism, 1922

    The diversity of the American church has long been recognized for its central roll in our Revolution and Constitution. In great diversity all which can connect the church or individuals of sound character together, is the Good.

    So mocking the outer edges of the church only confirms the unique qualities of the American experience. If there ever was an ideal hostile to men and their selfish ambitions, it is Individualism or Liberty.

    We can go back to the French Revolution and the Progressive delusion that a collective based on equality will secure Liberty. No religion allowed or it would muck utopia up. Clever monkeys will grant each other rights and secured by the power of public tantrums. Oceans of innocent blood and a would be world conquering dictator later. Who the French brought home and built a temple.

    But the Europeans just keep doing the same behaviour routine over and over again. We have to go over and stand them up again. Now it is Putin who Obama seems to believe he can wish away with that is so 'JS'. Short for last century in the French.

    Truth is once again the libertine Europeans do not have the moral character to resist Putin. Even if Europe still had the military capacity.

    Now Vlad in a fit of temper or calculated test is threatening to nuke the Danish navy. Yea that is old school. Surely if we have a massed tantrum Vlad will realize just how unhep this all is.

    Yes Gosiing,

    Obamanocis experiment was run two generations ago and the results are known and completely debilitating.
    Even as leaders from Germany to Britain publicly name multiculturalism as a prime agent of their social and cultural imposition, they have so far been unable to arrest it.

    America is fortunately a proportional Republic built on a foundation of the highest guided Enlightenment Logic.

    So we can switch over to salsa instead of ketchup without notice. Hey it tastes better. We can do our melting pot/fusion thing and invent the burrito. Even tell each other it is authentic Mexican.

    Now Obama being a scholar fully understands he is not going to win an argument against Hamilton, Madison and Jay. So Progressives attack our great Framers by stressing their human imperfections.

    Which of course requires Fredrick Douglas be turned into nothing more than an icon. An angry slave rather than the stunning largely self trained intellect able to bring so logic discipline to the emotional Christians. Busy burning our Constitution by torch light because they wanted to set (other) people free?

    Rather that the love of the mob, Fredrick Douglas accepted the greater challenge. To be a true leader rather than wallow in temporary false glory. Yea Douglas was great and not perfect either.

    Dr. Carson is very correct. We traditional Americans are bound together by the self respect of character enabling rational discussion. The necessary foundation of solutions by Americans for Americans.

    The Progressive OLB demonstrates their defective character on a daily basis. Jumping around, swing back to covered subjects as the repeating routine of lower order behaviour. All which can be done until they chose to respect themselves is a time out.

    Also recognize the burden of their false honour condition. To get better, they have to admit to themselves all the lying, thievery and abuse of power is not for the illusion utopia greater good. It is simple hubris.

    Now Progressive Prancing Bear,

    No reason to branch out your obtuse and loutish tantrums to subjects other than politics. Although I do realize the totalitarianism of Progressives with draffish rationalization can not limit itself. Even if you believed in personal integrity as the only healthy foundation of human relationships.

    What part of the science in an engineered man made product offends your Progressive Luddite dogma?

    Unlike a natural veneer covered with polymers, this is a strand fiber integrated by engineering and chemistry into a solid matrix. Which is exactly why the surface is twice as hard as an oak veneer. It is also why the product has no relationship to the hardness of a bamboo veneer. It ain't a veneer.

    "Solid Strand bamboo wearlayer with a dimensionally stable HDF core layer."

    Look my only concern is I will move the oak furniture. Lay down the floor using my new Ridgid life time warranty table saw from Home Depot. ($100 markdown 10% coupon) and the boss will decide she wants another look.

    Which is why I was driven to theorize about the glass flooring.

    Also discounted natural gas is really the critical input to all manufactured products. Especially glass.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Apr 16, 2015 12:34 PM Flag

    What is the 'nature' of your tool of science?

    Clearly there is no connection to calm reason and objectivity.

    The sulfur regulations are based on bogus science. To impose a product exposed as no only defective but dangerous, corn ethanol.

    Wind Mills after 30 years and $100 billion in give away of hard earned tax payer money provide around 2% of our electricity requirements.

    But it produces energy at the wrong time of day for demand or efficiency. Early morning and later evening. It also produces at the wrong time of year. Which is reflected in the lowest merchant or market prices.

    Further, it is undependable requiring full redundancy. So not only does this insanity require tax money to get built, rate payers still have to pay higher rates for all the undisclosed waste.

    Plus there is a 7%+ loss in transmission from distant sources. The ultimate variability of nature insuring no workable solutions to overcome the physics problem. Interesting enough that methanol manufacture is likely the best solution to energy loss and storage. But it blocked by what really is evil corn ethanol mandates.

    Look we have enough challenge keeping Walker on the rational path. Those corn ethanol pimps are powerful beyond all reason. To the shame of Just common sense Iowans.

    It is not the same challenge of Obama with full knowledge lying about the cost of Obamacare. It is not the same as Reid vainglorious bragging about abusing the protection of our Senate Well to lie to win an election.
    It is not Sen. Boxer bragging about using Rules for Radicals to bully and destroy people for irrational political power. Hillary risking national security as Sec of State to protect her personal ambition for false glory with a private insecure server.

    Republicans are just a political party. With all the normal political interests our systems is designed to handle. At least given time and so honourable press.

    Which is far less than Progressive proud they are destroying our system.

    If we give Hillary and the rest of the false honour Progressive a time out, no one knows what an American will come up with over 50 years.

    Probably glass which can mimic anything. Plus heat the house. With breath taking efficiency.

    If we do not allow Progressives to make electricity absurdly expensive for no other self admitted reason of the 'moral example' of false honour. Just keep dragging us back and imposing last century delusions.
    Like EPA localized gasoline blends with oxygenation requirements not a generation obsoleted by computers and port injection.

    Did you read the aluminum oxide and twice as hard as oak?

    No my time and cognition is limited. I am only a person. I trust the Costco merchants.

    The real secret to the treasure hunt is not just stuff. But assured quality and price when something tickles the fancy. If the wife is displeased, they always take it back.

    The amount of sulfur in America's high technology gasoline is negligible. So the Obama EPA has resorted to Grubering or simple lies to impose their false honor.

    The real agenda is to use these regulations to impose Progressive alternatives like corn ethanol. Even as corn ethanol imposes very real and dangerous pollution. Pollution which is not addressed by a catalytic converter. Which due to the high process quality of modern American gasoline is only needed until the engine is warm.

    Look you have the right to get emotional and have public tantrums.

    But it is very uncivilized to impose higher costs and more pollution because you insist upon a condition of willful ignorance. Which is why mature traditional Americans understand we have freedom of speech and not irrational self absorbed Progressive expression. Pursuit of rational objectivity is not the same the right to get naked and dance around the stones.

    Now that American/Canada has all the oil and gas we need for 1,000s of years. Science and the increase in our technology points us towards a single gasoline standard. Free of the insane flex fuel delusion, engineers can take the next step in efficiency of designing to a known fuel standard.

    Eliminating corn ethanol mandate would immediately increase our mpg by 7%+. Allowing engineers to tune ICE to a known standard another 7%

    Of course the Toyota has proved out their Hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen which comes from reformation of our abundant natural gas selling at an 80% discount to oil. 30%+ more efficient than the best ICE.

    Unlike defective corn ethanol increasing dangerous air pollution at all points and compromising food safety, the only local emission if water.

    Mercury In summary:

    The benefits of MACT’s mercury reduction are negligible.
    Particulates are already controlled by other regulations under the Clean Air Act, and the benefits calculated by the EPA for this rule are almost certainly exaggerated as well.
    The EPA’s cost estimate for the rule is far below independent estimates.
    The proponents of the proposed rule tell stories of mercury poisoning and point to benefit estimates as though they reflect a reduced incidence of mercury poisoning. However, even the EPA’s own cost-benefit calculations reveal that this is not a mercury rule in any meaningful sense—less than one-tenth of one percent of the estimated benefits come from mercury abatement. Those who conflate the exaggerated benefits of particulate reduction with the virtually nonexistent benefits of controlling mercury emissions perpetrate a costly fraud.
