"Conservative Latino leaders" ???? Flounder, go read the position paper of the NHLA........... they are far from Conservative. Kerry Eleveld as DailyKos lied to you and you were too willing to buy the narrative to fact check.
Section 329.11 - Geographic and jurisdictional limits of rivers and lakes
a. Jurisdiction over entire bed. Federal regulatory jurisdiction, and powers of
improvement for navigation, extend laterally to the entire water surface and bed
of a navigable waterbody, which includes all the land and waters below the
ordinary high water mark. Jurisdiction thus extends to the edge (as determined
above) of all such waterbodies, even though portions of the waterbody may be
extremely shallow, or obstructed by shoals, vegetation or other barriers.
Marshlands and similar areas are thus considered navigable in law, but only so far
as the area is subject to inundation by the ordinary high waters.
1. The "ordinary high water mark" on non-tidal rivers is the line on the
shore established by the fluctuations of water and indicated by physical
characteristics such as a clear, natural line impressed on the bank;
shelving; changes in the character of soil; destruction of terrestrial
vegetation; the presence of litter and debris; or other appropriate means
that consider the characteristics of the surrounding areas.
2. Ownership of a river or lake bed or of the lands between high and low
water marks will vary according to state law; however, private ownership
of the underlying lands has no bearing on the existence or extent of the
dominant Federal jurisdiction over a navigable waterbody.
to highlight :" private ownership
of the underlying lands has no bearing on the existence or extent of the
dominant Federal jurisdiction over a navigable waterbody. "
"STATE RAINWATER | GRAYWATER HARVESTING LAWS AND LEGISLATION"---- you are wrong a_i_n.
If you could not build much of a wheel.. it does not count as a source of sustainable energy for practical purpose and a moot point.....
how about this... as a small business owner, I pay on all levels of taxation for profits at the eoy. Forcing me to lower retained earnings and "invest" in either cap-ex or other spending.-- burning off cash eoy on repaving, painting, employee bonuses (deserved I have no problem with, but some get bonus because the 6.2 fica and or (depending on employees bracket) 1.45 mc tax is less than the tax on retained profit), etc. Yet a company like GE pays nothing... tax policy that eases the burden on one company yet burdens another is artificially creating a moat and a barrier to competition.
"I would contend that the right to light used for energy is similar to the usage of running water for wheels."
both water usage and solar usage are regulated by the state, try capturing rainwater or "impeding" water flow on a navigable waterway that would support a water driven wheel .... by using the commons, the courts did address the issue and the individual lost and the state has power to regulate. It was a distorted ruling as you mentioned.
"Please explain without talking points from the Fox News Liars"
I don't have cable.. I cut the cord. How about you find a new line or start to think for yourself.
Endorsed... read up on the sugar tariffs, farm subsidies driving the small farmer out for corporate farms, petrol chemicals in LA and southern TX. How about the enrichment of Uranium and the selection of winner and losers in the quest for better and safer procedures or the construction of new nuclear facilities. FDA approval ( think back a couple of years on the company that had some experimental drug and if the company let a hospital use it on a patient the approval process would be delayed -- the FDA took little blame in the media yet the greedy company got raked over the coals). Look around and open your eyes, don't be blind to the bad government does to enrich the ones that pay for access.
So from a high of about 615 MM metric tonnes to under 550 MM metric tonnes today...... so if the trend is down and the current pace will flood the "carbon producing" middle east, you should be elated that an area that produces the oil that is partially responsible for GW or CC (which ever term is in favor) is going to have a harder time extracting the resource. Funny how a downward trend in US CO2 emissions does not help the middle east............ maybe your focus should be the developing world and forget about blaming US.
man you cannot even read........... You have no original thoughts, it is not you but the "economist" you cite that are static model biased...
As you should know there is a Federal Reserve in Cleveland and some of the economist are either professors or lectures at local universities and attend the City Club functions... I do go and listen and ask questions of the Fed. economists, you should try it some time, and everyone of them I have talked to admit they use a static model and that is the norm for "Government work". Flounder, do go and try to learn on your own without a biased blogger telling you what to think.
The false premise is the only way the current course can continue is to inflate the currency or keep interest rates low...... Flounder, all the defender of the position you tout do not take into account that the world economy and the US economy are dynamic...... your brain trust relies of static models and snippets of time data to "prove" their theories.
They are no different that Sanders idiotic comment about Denmark's economy in relation to the US economy and its policies.

Florida Solar Energy Research and Education"
It was a pfd white paper by a female author... it is off my history as of now. I think the search was something along the lines of historical Florida solar laws -- or something to that extent.
They are equivalent..... The government says you do not have the common usage of the solar energy hitting your property......it is under the "control and usage" of government. If government has control they decide how it is to be used and taxed -- not the end beneficiaries or.those who can find a best practice for the need at hand........government is one size fits all approach for the most part -- how often does that work out for the good or the utilization when regional needs are secondary to the state mandates? To equate the tragedy of the commons to the light energy hitting ones personal property is a over reach driven by the governments need to tax not for the good of the commons......
Flounder, the Government has laws/regulations and the enforcement wing of agencies to compel the effected of those codes to selectively endorse or create an economic moat for companies in its favor. Tax code will never allow for "Free" energy production via solar for the citizen, The government loses out on tax monies but in addition loses out on the add on fees it put on everyone that pays a utility bill to promote programs it deems necessary for re-election (power).
You love the government and court --""The United States has held that there is no common-law right to sunlight." if you don't understand the concept of "no common-law right" and the implications it has on liberties/rights... there may be not helping you.
and Larry Craig's wide stance was only because he need the extra room to take care of his functions.
Just the opposite --- it is the government that is endorsing the status quo. You need to read for comprehension...........what part of getting the government out of the way so best practices can prevail did you not understand?
from solarabc's "The United States has held that there is no common-law right to sunlight. This has
required that specific statutory authority be established to protect the rights of solar
users in terms of both their ability to install a solar energy system on their property
and after that system is installed to protect their access to sunlight, so that the system
remains operational. "
More government regulations/laws interfering with best practices...... Flounder, when wlll you see that the bigger the government get the more it can screw up?
"Florida is one of a handful of states that prohibit residents from purchasing electricity from a source other than an electric utility" --- see Flounder, the Government you love so much picks winners and losers... yet you cannot see in a "free" market the government policy would never have restricted a citizen use of their land and the right to find a better alternative that fit their needs..........
Yep you struck a nerve... I despise hateful people and you while trying to veil your deep hatred for those you deem inferior with Progressive rhetoric are the most vile dangerous type of racist ,misogynistic, anti alternative life style cretins.
Flounder.. stop with the idiotic posts......... if you want to post about the hearing, copy and paste Lanny Davis' opinion piece for yesterday........ While I think he makes a few assumptions at least he follows a uniform train of thought and supports his positions (from a biased interpretation of the facts).
Besides from being a racist misogynists have you added a transgender basher to your list of list of small closed minded bigotry? You are a good ole deep south Democrat in Progressive clothing.
Blumenthal is a Clinton insider and a die hard Progressive....... he would not drop a dime on HRC, he remembers Vince Foster. They may claim Blumenthal is central to the investigation but he is not going to hand HRC over to her "enemies" as she referred to them. Shame she is not pragmatic like Joe and thinks of the GOP of opposition and not enemies........ no wonder nothing is getting done in DC......
to quote you, "the hypocrites that populate the committee. " since Cummings is a member of the committee and you did not specify a specific member or members you believed were hypocrites.......... you called Cummings a hypocrite. Don't try and change the wording in a reply and think you can get away with bashing Cummings in a earlier post....... either get a blogger to write your post of think before you type.
