I come from a family of Northern Democrats and am surrounded by the infestation of you misguided, ignorant leeches up here who are Democrats.
I saw them leave neighborhoods where blacks moved in and I hear these same Democrats make racists remarks about blacks.

Conservatives Try to Rewrite Civil Rights History (Again)

Iím still unsure of what this revisionism is supposed to accomplish. If itís to appeal to actual African American voters, you might want to try a different approach, since this one wonít work. But if itís to assuage guilt and assure conservatives that they are, and have always been, on the right side of history, thenóto borrow from President Obamaóplease proceed.

If you are correct, many more people would be doing it, but as usual, your are woefully misinformed.
Solar is not prime time yet. I looked into this and the payback was not there. Maybe good for folks in the Southwest, but no up in the Northeast. Sure, you might get a credit if it is sunny in the summer every day of the month, but that is not reality.
I love the way you make a post that is factually bogus, and then you call other people idiots.
You must be a liberal know-it-all, for sure.
I am correct.

The return on solar panels is still over 20 years.(last I read).

There is a local group that looks at alternative power generation. Many have panels & their net effect is they make money from the electric company.

I am stating obvious facts. People can put panels on their roofs in the Northeast & produce enough electricity to cover their usage.

The idea you & galt don't know this just indicates how uninformed you are on the subject.

Knowing more that you right whiners doesn't make me a know-it-all. It just makes be the typical informed person because you people obviously do't know sh*t.

The scandal surrounding the Internal Revenue Service's handling of tea party groups took a left turn this week after congressional Democrats revealed that the tax agency had also targeted liberal groups for scrutiny. The revelation led some liberals to declare that the controversy was a manufactured one, created by a partisan Republican (Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista) to taint President Obama.
If only. The new information changes the context profoundly, but it doesn't explain why IRS employees made wholly inappropriate demands for information from politically active groups seeking nonprofit status under Sections 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Nor does it explain why applications from some groups languished for years while lower-level IRS agents waited in vain for guidance from headquarters.
The scandal has always had two main elements: the "be on the lookout" lists the IRS used to flag certain applicants for special scrutiny, and how that scrutiny was conducted. The first of these issues -- and only the first -- was recast this week when Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, released BOLO lists from August 2010 to April 2013. Although heavily redacted, they revealed that tea party groups were hardly the only ones flagged for extra screening.
Other would-be nonprofit groups singled out include "progressive" or "blue" organizations ("Activities are partisan and appear anti-Republican"), as well as those involved in "Occupied Territory Advocacy" ("Applications may be inflammatory, advocate a one-sided point of view, and promotional materials may signify propaganda"), medical marijuana, paying down the national debt, setting up regional health information exchanges and accountable care organizations and promoting open source software. Some on the BOLO lists had obvious political overtones; others simply presented new questions about who should receive a tax exemption.
The oldest of the BOLO lists released by Levin -- the ones from August 2010 through March 2011 -- indicate that the IRS had been flagging applications from progressive groups for some time, while tea party groups were newly receiving scrutiny. In the case of the former, the list says that "their 'progressive' activities appear to show that (c)(3) may not be appropriate." (Section 501(c)(3) groups collect tax-deductible contributions and may not engage in any campaigning.) For the latter, the list says the applications for (c)(3) or (c)(4) status should be sent to a particular IRS group for review with help from Exempt Organizations Technical, a group of experts in Washington.(Section 501(c)(4) groups collect donations that are not tax-deductible, and they may participate in political campaigns so long as it's not their primary activity.)
That was a desperate spin on the liberals' part. And you bought it. Were any progressive organizations denied tax exemption?

Did the IRS send the FBI to progressives asking them what they said in their prayers, what books they read or the names and addresses of all the members in their organization and leaked them to a hard rightwing conservative website which they published?

If you don't recognize this as KBG tactics and a gross infringement on civil liberties and that this would have never been tolerated before this administration, you're helplessly lost.

You obviously aren't very savvy. Sure, a moron who wants to be able to say "Oh Boy! I have solar", will agree with you, but any business minded person knows that anything with a payback period of over five (to TWENTY) years is not a slam dunk.

You are an idiot. You have no frikkin clue what you are talking about. You don't know shit. You are just a googler, that "repeats", period.
