Opting for nuclear and natural gas in an orderly phase-out of coal may make sense, but abruptly closing coal plants in the hope that solar can fill the gap is ridiculous.
OK, I'll meet you half way. The coal plants which are closing down as a result of EPA's regulations represent about 10% of the "U.S.’s coal-fired generating capacity." Other's can be phased out over time as renewable energy sources mature and develop.

So what did you think of Hillary admitting Saddam Hussein gave aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists including al Qaeda?

Wiki - 2003 invasion of Iraq: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_invasion_of...

"The invasion consisted of 21 days of major combat operations, in which a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Poland, invaded Iraq and deposed the Ba'athist government of Saddam Hussein."

So what's this pubescent BS about unilaterally invading a sovereign country without justification....????

Ever heard of the CRA and the Democrat's extreme enhancement of it?

Go embrace what's yours. Use two fingers and stroke lightly.

<quoted text>US tax investigator: Liberals were not targeted
By Associated Press June 27, 2013 12:27 pm
WASHINGTON -- A government inspector who detailed the U.S. federal tax agency's tough treatment of conservative groups says he has no evidence that liberal groups were similarly targeted, according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday.
Russell George, the inspector general for tax administration, addressed the letter to a top Democratic lawmaker who has complained that George unfairly focused on tea party and other conservative groups while omitting mention of liberals in a report released last month.
The report became a major scandal for the Obama administration and led to the removal of at least five top officials at the Internal Revenue Service, including former acting Commissioner Steven Miller. It revealed that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status.
Democrats seem determined to shift the focus to this week's disclosure that "Progressive" was also on a list of terms used by IRS screeners from 2010 to 2012 to look for applicants with potential problems that would merit close scrutiny.
In a letter obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, George acknowledged that "Progressives" appeared on the list. But he said there was no evidence the IRS set aside progressive groups' applications because they appeared on that list.
George said his investigators have "multiple sources of information corroborating," including interviews with IRS employees, emails and other documents, that tea party groups' applications were set aside for care examinations.
But he added, "We found no indication in any of these other materials that "Progressives" was a term used to refer cases for scrutiny for political campaign intervention."


The Democrats on the House Ways and Mean Committee have sent a letter to Republicans on the committee, urging Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), the chairman of the committee, to bring the IRS inspector general back before to Congress, according to The Washington Post's Greg Sargent.

Democrats want a chance to ask Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George the questions they have raised about the report that set off the IRS scandal.

"It is now evident that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration’s May 14, 2012 audit report titled 'Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review' is fundamentally flawed," the letter reads. "We request that you immediately ask Mr. George to return to the Committee and answer questions under oath regarding all of these matters."

You are just stuck on the propaganda.

Try, just for a fleeting moment, to use what you have left of common sense.

By the way, using "idiot" in your name fits.

2011....

Three nonprofit advocacy groups that were denied tax exemption by the Internal Revenue Service were all units of Emerge America, an organization devoted to cultivating female political leaders for local, state and federal government.

The I.R.S. denied tax exemption to the groups — Emerge Nevada, Emerge Maine and Emerge Massachusetts — because, the agency wrote in denial letters, they were set up specifically to cultivate Democratic candidates. Their Web sites ask for evidence that participants in their training programs are Democrats.

News of the I.R.S. decision, which surfaced in heavily redacted denial letters to the groups that were posted to the agency’s Web site last Thursday, raised concerns among advocacy groups, known as 501(c)(4) organizations after the section of the tax code that governs them, at large.

Crossroads GPS, a conservative advocacy organization with ties to Karl Rove, the Republican strategist, sent an e-mail to supporters on Tuesday, assuring them that it was not one of the three groups denied exemption.

How do you 'prove' something about massive construction projects yet to be completed?

The best that can be done at this point is to present all the caveats gleaned from past environmental disasters caused by Fool's Gold rushes to build Hydroelectric Damns, Wind Turbines and Corn Ethanol fiasco's.

When little juniors like your ilk rush to jump off the cliff, be advised that your responsible fellow citizens are tied to your fat azz by citizenship and taxes. What you want to jump into is rude as hell in that context. Hell, your voting for the Magic Negro was rude as hell, too.

Good Evening topix friends!
Hoping that all my "opponents" so far today are enjoying my deranged comments and senseless, useless, mindless attacks against them!!!!!!!!!!
You must admit my favorite sockpuppet "Buroc Millhouse" excels when it comes to that. Show him some TOPIX love!!! He is currently my favorite and by far one of the most demented of all my sockpuppets so far. I am hoping "Fenris" may come forth sometime today as well. I am channeling him with my tinfoil hat from my wheelchair as I sit in front of my computer today in a fresh pair of industrial strength depends repeating over and over:
"I'M GOOD ENOUGH. I'M SMART ENOUGH. AND DOGGONE IT, PEOPLE LIKE ME.!!!!!!!!!
Please my friends, if they make an appearance show them some LOVE!!!!!!
I am slightly worn out right now as I was here all day judging posts and talking the entire away to myself with all my sockpuppets!!!!!! To say it was exhausting would be an understatement!
I got off to a slow start with the judgit competition today so please, keep up the judging without me while I get some chow from the hospital canteen. Dont' worry, I will most assuredly catch up at some point. After I have my cafeteria style din-din and get another clean pair of depends on (industrial strength of course!!), take my meds and have a quick chat with my doctor I will return relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed, ready to roar back to life judging your posts!!! See you in bit!
PS! If anyone wants to hook up with me (men only!!!) please leave your number in my personal topix mailbox!! The days are long and lonely on the psych ward where I have been condemned to live out the rest of my useless and delusional life.
Call me, please!!!!
Warmest and most desperate regards: "Waxman"
