Bullshit! Those entitlement programs are in jeopardy because the rich raped the current tax system & found ways to escape from paying into the programs. The rich don't pay into medicare,medicaid, & SS. Thats where the problem lies. This country is in debt because the rich continue to take alot & give very littler back in terms of taxes. You don't need a palm reader to see that!

If you raise the minimum wage to $9, then how much should you pay those already making $9?
That would depend on the individual employer dipstick. Some might simply keep paying their employees at that rate but the more savvy will raise the rate proportionally to retain their workforce.
At any rate raising the minimum wage has proved to be beneficial to small business. States with higher minimum wages have had better small business activity than those with lower rates.

I proved my point. No aquifer is required for a geothermal system to function just fine!! Proven by millions of installations worldwide!!
You railed at Old Raider, claiming the only way to dissipate the heat was to reach water, as in an aquifer.
You were wrong, as usual.
To redeem yourself, you need to apologize to both Raider and myself.
I'm waiting, oh ignorant one!!
----------
""3. How is heat transferred between the earth and the home or building?
The earth has the ability to absorb and store heat energy. To use that stored energy, heat is extracted from the earth through a liquid medium (groundwater or an anti-freeze solution) and is pumped to the heat pump or heat exchanger. There, the heat is used to heat the air. In summer, the process is reversed and indoor heat is extracted from indoors and transferred to the earth through the liquid.
4. Does it do both heating and cooling?
One of the things that makes a heat pump so versatile is its ability to be a heating and cooling system in one. You can change from one mode to another with a simple flick of a switch on your indoor thermostat. In the cooling mode, a geothermal heat pump takes heat from indoors and transfers it to the cooler earth through either groundwater or an underground loop system.
5. Do I need separate ground loops for heating and cooling?
No. The same loop works for both. All that happens when changing from heating to cooling, or vice versa, is that the flow of heat is reversed.""

Proving, once again, that your lies concerning being a geologist are just that, LIES.
Thanks for playing!!

<quoted text>
Like you really understand what you posted.

I'll put it to you simply:

Geothermal heating is a piece of cake. Just drill a hole to the temperature you desire, and circulate water through it and throughout the building.

Geothermal cooling is very difficult. Why? Because the heat you transfer from a building to the ground has to be transported away from the location of the building, or it just rises back into the building.

Any questions?

How about this one:
How is the heat transported away from the location of the building after it has been transferred from the building to the Earth immediately below the building?

Exactly. Bush's new law, the American Dream Downpayment Act of 2003, made these changes on home loans. Had it not been for these changes the housing market would have never collapsed nor the American economy.
1. No Down Payment required on a home loan.
2. No background checks.
3. Up to 150% home value loaned.
4. Up to 5 years of principal deferred payments.

Equal Opportunity, Our National Myth

....The gap between aspiration and reality could hardly be wider. Today, the United States has less equality of opportunity than almost any other advanced industrial country. Study after study has exposed the myth that America is a land of opportunity. This is especially tragic: While Americans may differ on the desirability of equality of outcomes, there is near-universal consensus that inequality of opportunity is indefensible. The Pew Research Center has found that some 90 percent of Americans believe that the government should do everything it can to ensure equality of opportunity.

"Today conservative displeasure has eclipsed conservative argument. Our energy is expended in angry bursts, not persuasive intensity. I have maintained my conservative principles through eleven presidential elections. But there are times when I feel as if there is a litmus test for conservatism that I can no longer pass. Some vocal conservatives write as if conservatism is an exclusive club that only a select few should be allowed to join."

You are very ignorant of US history. Let me help you correct that. Here is a link where you can actually read the quotes from the Democrats when they were negotiating with the Republicans with outright lies to get no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that was an obvious failure in 2003:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...

Now, this will require that you think for yourself and draw your own conclusion about what the above facts mean:

In 2003 the Democrats supported Bush and the war in Iraq.
In 2003 the Republicans supported the Democrats' Marxist subnprime loan program.

Do you think there was a connection there?

Considering the fact that it was the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program that collapsed our economy, what lessons do you think we should have learned from the above facts of history?
