Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

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?
... your turn, dufus.
Once again DB proves without a doubt that he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.
Geothermal heating/cooling isn't simply a matter of sucking heat up from the earth it takes advantage of the fact that temperatures a few feet under the ground remain at a constant temperature. In fact some installations aren't buried in the earth at all but have coils submerged in a nearby pond or lake as water will likewise maintain the same temperature a few feet below the surface.
In the heating mode heat is absorbed and brought into the home or building. In the cooling mode hot air is pumped out and goes through the same coils where it's absorbed by either the ground or in the case of a pond, the water.

These articles should give even a lamebrain like you an idea of what geothermal is all about.
By the way, George W Bush had geothermal heating/cooling at his Crawford ranch.

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?
You can keep pulling that stuff out of your anal orifice all you want DB but it's never going to turn into chocolate ice cream. Once again it was unregulated mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac that made those toxic loans that infected the whole system and not any government programs that were more tightly overseen.
You're an idiot and a liar DB.

You forgot to put content into your post. I gave a reason to eliminate the minimum wage. What is your reason to keep it? And, why do you think it is good for the economy to increasei it?
By the way, you never answered the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
Once again you vomitous cretin, it's not Obama's government, it's our government. Don't like it? TAKE A HIKE! Why don't you try Somalia? No government to speak of but everyone's running around with assault weapons. Of course there's also no decent roads, clean water, medical care or electricity either.
You're an idiot DB!

You & Flascktard. A discount is the same as an instant rebate in ther effect on your wallet.

Subsides are handing out money.

92 billion was not spent, you are a liar.

The subsidy for the Volt is a good subsidy. Too bad you are too f*cking stupid to understand it.

Gee,,Dumbass Floriduh wants to give oil companies billions even though they are raking in billions in profits.

Yet, the dumbfuck thinks helping an industry that will help this country quit exporting billions & create lasting jobs & provide a cleaner environment & fewer emissions is not valid.

Hey Dickweed: which is cheaper, flying GWBush to Crawford and having him stay at his own remote ranch or flying Moochelle and 60+ of her closest friends to Spain?
Don't hurt yourself doing the math. Just guess.
The government did not pay to send Michelle & her friends to France.

How much did it cost to renovate the Crawford ranch for security & advanced communications & housing for all the people that traveled with Bush.

77 trips to Crawford. Not including trips to the Bush estate in Maine.

Bush has the record for most vacation ays as President.

96 days on vacation between when he took office in January of 2001 & 9-11.

So really, with the record like that, you f*cking right whiners shouldn't be b*tching about Obama playing golf once every two weeks on the average.

You are dumb and unable to comprehend. Point out a post where I have lauded former president's Bush's term in office. He was and is a progressive, a spend and borrow republican in sheep's clothing, in a word a liberal socialists.
Peace

PS: Bush did a lousy job as president unless you compare it to president nobama's performance, the it looks pretty darn good.
You keep blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession. You can pretend all you want but you're just the typical right whiner, a Bush defender through & through but too embarrassed to admit it.

5. Iraq has a mobile biological weapons lab.
6. Saddam tried to buy uranium from Africa.
7. Iraq had contacts with al-qaeda to aid them in 9-11.
8. We will be welcomed as liberators.

Answer - All Republican lies.

So you move from a non-existent argument into a Bush-Bashing comedy show you found on an incredulous, laughable website.
You sure get around there, boy. They must affectionately call you Mercury:}
What wrecked the good name of conservatism? Success. The conservative critique of the liberal welfare-warfare state was so powerful that special interests (such as those that President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex) and opportunistic politicians began to adopt the label and offer fame, money, and power to conservatives who would admit them to the fellowship. As well, there was another reaction against the new age of ideology and bigness, a populist reaction. Combining populist anger with the name of conservatism proved a winning formula for fundraisers and office-seekers. But instead of making the populist uprising more conservative, the effect was to remake conservatism as populism. Thus the principle conservative values of peace, community, and economic responsibility came to be lost amid wars and rumors of wars, military Keynesianism and promises of perpetual, debt-fueled growth.

The original conservatives—and some of their libertarian and even liberal friends, those who were more conservative than they knew—had it right. Today the country pays the price for the left-wing ideologies that ran rampant in the 20th century and the right-wing, but not conservative, reaction that has only exacerbated the destruction wrought by the left. To solve the country’s seemingly intractable—and, in the long-term, lethal—strategic, economic, and socio-cultural problems requires a rediscovery of traditional conservatism.

That’s the mission of The American Conservative.

The deadline for states to commit to creating their own health insurance exchanges under Obamacare was Friday, with half the states ultimately refusing to do so, leaving the federal government with that job. That includes some of the country's most populous states.


New Jersey, Ohio and Florida, several of the biggest states that had not declared their intentions, officially said no late in the week.

Twenty-five states, most Republican-led, have said they will let the federal government run the marketplaces, also known as exchanges. And seven governors from Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire and South Dakota have sought approval for the third option—a partnership with the federal government. Three of those—Arkansas, Delaware and Illinois—have already received conditional approval. A report by the Charleston, W. Va., Gazette said West Virginia also decided late Friday to opt for a partnership with the federal government.

if the feds can make this work by Oct. 1. A robust, national health insurance marketplace could ultimately be cheaper and more efficient. It could be the model that shows a national health care system works, taking us one step closer to a public national health care system.

I actually have read a few studies.
Here is one:
"Two basic points emerge from our analysis of the available data. First, only a small portion of subprime mortgage originations is related to the CRA. Second, CRA-related loans appear to perform comparably to other types of subprime loans. Taken together, the available evidence seems to run counter to the contention that the CRA contributed in any substantive way to the current mortgage crisis."
http://www.minneapolisfed.org/publications_pa...
There are others.
You forgot to put numbers in your answer. You get no credit for that question. So far, your score on the test is zero.

And, you forgot to tell us how you managed to get the governments of these foreign companies to force the Special Purpose Vehicles to open their books for your inspection.

Here's something else:
Ben Bernanke was testifying before Barney Frank's committee soon after the economic collapse caused by the Democrats' subprime housing loan program in 2008. When Bernanke mentioned the words "special Purpose Vehicle", all questioning of him immediately ceased.
Now, explain to us how Ben Bernanke uttering the words "Special Purpose Vehicle" was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in Washington and get unanimous support from the Democrats for him to continue as head of the Fed.
