But, look at what you're comparing, cleaning solar panels to purchasing oil or gas? How is that even possible? Got me! I'm aware of the industrial cleaners, thanks anyway.
Well, remember, you're the one who brought up cleaning solar panels. I didn't, but rather just stated that it might be cheaper to clean the panels than purchasing gas or oil. What do you think, seeing as I supplied a good link that says the panels may be self-cleaning after all.

Too bad Obama doesn't have a clue.
Frank, your Constitution is fine. Good.(it did forget the blacks, but hell, well, never mind....). Tell me , Frank, what your Constitution , and i repeat, it's great, what does it have and guarantee that the Canadian, French, British, Spanish, Portuguese, Swiss, Danish, German, Austrian, Italian, Belgian, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Australian, New-Zealand, Japan, etc, don't have?

Tell us, Frank, will wind and water turbines make as many animal life extinct as the industrial revolution with its coal, oil and gas?

I can foresee your answer , namely that the industrial revolution spearheaded advances and made our lives better. True , I agree and I'm glad we've had it. BUT, why could we not have it and preserve, protect our species and environment at the same time? Maybe we didn't know, though I suspect the big guys did, but we do know today and we are still polluting ourselves to death in the name of the economy which is, btw, a false premise.

May be self-cleaning? Still, the panel size has to be much smaller. Besides, after all is said and done, it will be regulated and we'll end up paying for it anyway.

That answer is simple. You can't make money by protecting such things. Therein lies the problem with the world. Money, more money.

Rush Limbaugh On Worst Economic Drop Since 2009:‘This Is What I Meant When I Said I Hope He Fails’
The Daily Caller

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was dismayed by revised economic numbers showing the U.S. economy shrunk a staggering 2.9 percent in the first three months of 2014, placing the blame squaring on President Obama’s policies and claiming “this is what I meant when I said I hope he fails.”

On Wednesday, Limbaugh led his radio program with the Commerce Department’s “revision” of statistics on America’s gross domestic product in the first quarter of 2014.

While reports from April indicated a 0.1 percent decline and reports from May bumped that up to 1.0 percent, Commerce is now indicating that the U.S. lost nearly 3 percent of its entire economy between January and March. That’s one percentage point per month.

And one was not flying, lack of parts. Harriers did make the difference with bombing and establishing air superiority but not before an obsolete Super Étendard launched a French Exocet missile that sank a british destroyer. The Argentine air force consisted of obsolete 1950s Canberra, 1950-60s Skyhawks and Mirage IIIs. The war was launched by the stupid Argentine junta in order to make the Argentines forget about their economic mess. That did not work out too well as we soon found out.

Okay, here's my reply, and mind you, this isl all be from memory. You're free to check it out for accuracy :
Chinooks? They had FIVE Chinooks. Ever hear of the SS Atlantic Conveyor? It was SUNK and guess what was on board her?!?
SS Atlantic Conveyor
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Atlantic Conveyor was a British merchant navy ship, registered in Liverpool, that was requisitioned during the Falklands War.

She was hit on 25 May 1982 by two Argentine air-launched AM39 Exocet missiles, killing 12 sailors. Atlantic Conveyor sank whilst under tow on 28 May 1982.

The ships were used to carry supplies for the Royal Navy Task Force sent by the British government to retake the Falkland Islands from Argentine occupation. Sailing for Ascension Island on 25 April 1982, Atlantic Conveyor carried a cargo of six Wessex helicopters from 848 Naval Air Squadron and five RAF HC.1 Chinooks from No. 18 Squadron RAF. At Ascension, she picked up eight Fleet Air Arm Sea Harriers (809 Squadron) and six RAF Harrier GR.3 jump jets.

One Chinook of B flight No. 18 Squadron RAF left the Atlantic Conveyor to support operations on Ascension.
Yep, only ONE Chinook survived! After all that Wicked Weed you have been smoking all these years your memory is off in La La Land!

Oh, is "Malvinas" a French Name? Babylon says the French name for those islands are ... the Falklands!!! So why do YOU use the name Malvinas?
And, as YOU should know, the "United States" to the French is "Les Etats-Unis". So why do you call them "Malvinas"? I know, you HATE ENGLISH!!!!

Sorry, I do not hate any language. I try and learn enough of any language to be polite. I am not in the situation where I can converse with others on a daily bases to become proficient in other languages is all.
The Falkland Islands are part of the British Commonwealth and it is okay for Spanish speaker to call them the Malvinas but you use it to slam the Brits. Sure, every language has different words for the United States and I am not offended if they do not say "United States" but I would only use "Les Etats-Unis" when talking to a French speaker, but not to a Spanish speaker.

I have only 700 hours in the Chinooks, 2,000+ in Hueys, 2,000+ in Kiowas, 2,000+ in Osages and 65 hours in Siouxs. Only 480 hours in civilian airplanes Cessna 172, Piper PA-28, Piper PA-34 and Maules.
I had planned on fly my Maule about 200 hours per year but I am only up to 310 and I will have had my Maule two years come late September.
By the way, my Maule will haul as much weight as a C-182 but I can take off and land in half the distance. I am not a Bush pilot and have no plans to consider myself one but I am comfortable in rough fields.
Yep, no landings on curved dirt roads, river banks, cow pastures unless I am forced to.
I my day I was a heck of a chopper pilot and the enlisted crew members will call me "Mr. Slick" or "Mr. Smooth" because I had a easy touch and never bounced a landing.

I was the flight scheduling officer for three Chinook units and when I would post the next day's scheduled the enlisted member would check it out and you would here them moan and grown about some of the pilots they are assigned to while others while others would rejoice.
They knew you were the better pilots or who took care of them better. I seems that pilots who had flown in combat took better care of their enlisted crewmembers. When you life depends on each other, you develop a mutual respect for each other

“What people need to understand — it is a result of policy,” Limbaugh declared.“The United States’ economy is not naturally inclined to this kind of horrible performance. The United States economy, as designed, is designed to grow and expand.”

“None of this is accidental,” he continued.“None of this just happens to be occurring. It is the result of policy — six years of it!”

“This is what I meant when I said I hope he fails,” Limbaugh declared, referencing a widely-criticized statement he mad within days of President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.“This is what I hoped would not happen.”

2. The Brazilians and Americans helped the British by arranging airborne refuelling for the only flyable Vulcan left in the British heavy bombing armoury , while the Chileans gave berthing and replenishing facilities to the nuclear British sub that eventually sank the Belgrano whose crew consisted mostly of teenaged sea cadets - most died.

Oh, and Russians gave intel to the Argentinians. So what? As far as the teenaged sea cadets, they were on a warship during a war!!! Don't blame the Brits, blame the Argentinians!!!

3, Falklands is a French name? From Babylon? What is that, the 3 Stooges'
official dictionary? Could that named be more British even if you tried? DOH. Some obscurer explorer whose name escapes me (I don't feel like looking it up but will if you ask nicely) gave it that name in the 17th century. As to Malvinas, how much more Spanish can you get? That name was given to the islands by various Spanish explorers and settlers and Argentina insists on calling it that. Is that too complicated for you? In my post , I called the islands the Falklands - Malvinas in order to please everyone. The French were never involved in the islands far as I know,.

5.
Well, if you have a problem with Babylon, can you reference as French French dictionary? If not, shut the F-up about it!!!
As far as the "Malvinas", yes, it is Spanish but they are British islands. If you are going to be on an English speaking site, speak English. Sure you may use British English spellings but I understand that. Centre is still center to me even though my spell checker didn't like it.
Oh, do Japanese call their country "Japan" or is it "&#26085;&#26412; , &#12450;&#12472;&# 12450;&#26481;&#37096; &#12395;&#12354;&# 12427;&#21015;&#23798; &#12398;&#22269;; &#28422;, &#26085;&#26412;&# 12391;&#30330;&#31077; &#12375;&#12383;&# 40658;&#20809;&#12426; &#12398;&#28422;&# 22120;; &#28422;&#24037;&# 33464;&#21697; &#28422;&#12434;&# 22615;&#12427;" (but I don't think this site will display their writing).

Are you condemning capitalism? Seems to. I don't. I think capitalism is great,except that those that espouse and practice it have gone too far. We are even past greed now. How do you figure, given our polluted state and "I don't care" attitude,we HAVE to make a buck , pay high dividends but particularly obscene salaries and bonuses to the top echelons, that famed 1%? It doesn't have to be like that and you seem to acknowledge it. What's wrong high and decent profits, not out-of-whack ones? One perfect example of such greed : GM has recalled, in the last year, EVERY car and truck it has built for the last 10 years, among which is one instance where people were getting killed and they chose to hide the defect. Oh, yes, they fired a low-ranking upper mid-level employee. And so it goes...
