Barack Obama, our next President

No, I am not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker,” Obama said, at a media conference in Senegal.
The US leader also said that he had not called the Chinese or Russian presidents to plead with them to hand Snowden over, because his government was using regular legal channels for an extradition case.
“I have not called President Xi (Jinping) personally or President (Vladimir) Putin personally. The reason is, number one, I shouldn’t have to. This is something that routinely is dealt between law enforcement officials in various countries.”
Obama said that the US and China relationships were broad and ranged over many issues and that he would not get down to “wheeling and dealing” with Russia and China over one extradition case

Solar power is viable only in the Southwest. Power supply for Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, not much else.
What about the rest of the country, nights, cloudy days, etc.?
Oh, ye of little knowledge:

Plants are located throughout the United States. There are four more plants planned in Colorado and three more in Utah.

New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Pennsylvania have all passed Renewable Energy laws.

Just for the record, the Long Island Solar Farm is "the largest photovoltaic array in the eastern U.S. It earned the Best Photovoltaic Project of Year Award from the New York Solar Energy Industries Association. The LISF is made up of 164,312 solar panels, which provide enough electricity for roughly 4,500 households. Additionally, the project will cause the abatement of more than 30,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year."

List of five BEST states for solar energy:

BEST

1. Massachusetts – With an impressive 4.4 out of 5, Massachusetts is one of only a handful of states where homeowners have the option of leasing solar panels for rather than buying them outright. As you might imagine, this puts a residential solar system within the financial reach of many who might otherwise not be able to purchase one. Massachusetts also offers several tempting rebates and tax incentives for choosing solar.

2. Maryland – With a 4.3 out of 5, Maryland was only narrowly edged out of the top spot by Massachusetts. With good background energy policies, strong financial incentives, and the availability of solar leases, the only thing holding Maryland back is a high threshold for earning those incentives. Currently, only systems of at least 20 kilowatts (much bigger than the average home system) qualify.

3. New York – Although it ties Maryland with a 4.3 out of 5, New York has blazed its own trail when it comes to state rebate and tax credit programs designed to help those who go solar achieve even faster payback time frames.

4. Delaware – A score of 4.05 out of 5 is nothing to sneeze at, especially because it doesn’t adequately show how far Delaware has come in just a few short years. Since 2010, all of the state’s renewable energy policies, from tax incentives to the Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS), have matured significantly. One of the only things holding it back is the lack of a property tax exemption to save homeowners even more money on an annual basis.

5. Colorado – As the home of one of the first Renewables Portfolio Standards in the country, it’s no surprise that Colorado is in the top five. With a score of 3.7 out of 5, Colorado recently strengthened its successful RPS, mandating 30 percent renewable energy by 2020. Although financial incentives are available from the handful of utility companies operating in the state, Colorado’s solar future would benefit from state rebates and tax credits that could bring the sticker price of installation way down for residents.

Interestingly, the Spanish use of the word mensa (female) or menso (male)generally denotes someone who is crazy or stupid.

"No seas menso".... Don't be crazy. Or, "mensa, yo te dije que no lo hicieras"... stupid, I told you not to do it.

Ever been out in the middle of the Mohave or Sonoran desert?
Very little air pollution, mostly natural. Very few cars, fewer trucks, no fracking.
Just nothing except your ugly solar panels.
And the transmission lines that go with them.
Better to bulldoze urban slums and build solar farms (if there was enough sun and if the inmates don't steal the panels).
Bulldozing a place like Barstow would be a far better idea.

Former Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Wednesday that Congressional Democrats are planning new legislation to render ineffective Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision on Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, the historic 1965 legislation that guaranteed equal access to the vote for all Americans, regardless of race or ethnicity. According to The Hill, Pelosi is already considering naming the prospective bill after civil rights icon and Georgia Rep. John Lewis (D).
“It’s really a step backward, and it’s not a reflection of what’s really happening in our country in some of these places,” Pelosi said of Tuesday’s decision, in which a 5-to-4 majority ruled that Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act is unconstitutional. Section 4 established a metric for states that have discriminated racially in the past, qualifying them for Section 5, which mandates that these states receive clearance from the federal government before making changes to election law.
“I would like to see something…called the John Lewis Voting Rights Act,” she continued, saying that Congress could follow Chief Justice Roberts’ recommendation and re-write Section 4&#8242;s criteria.
Nice!

Good stuff. Stick with it Pelosi, every individual needs a voice in this country and everyone needs to be able to vote.

Right, except the IG's report doesn't say progressives weren't targeted because the IG was directed to ONLY investigate conservative applicants. IG George has stated that they did find left organizations on watch lists but that they were outside the scope of their investigation.
I am sure the fact that 100% of groups with tea party or patriot was flagged indicates nothing to you.
