How about covering the Empire State Building with solar panels, with virtually no impact to the environment/

Of course, Galt sees an immediate problem with urban solar problems...difficult for the sunshine to penetrate the graffiti.
But, yes, NIMBY, that's why you people want to destroy the desert instead of your urban paradises.
Remember the wind power facilities off Hyannisport killed by the Kennedys?
Well, I have to admit, you made me laugh with your graffiti comment.

That being said, NIMBY is a two way street. Those of us on the coast have had off-shore oil rigs forced upon us. Seems only fitting that those living in the desert learn to live with Solar Energy plants.

Edward Snowden is, according to U.S. media sources, the most wanted man on the planet, though it is worth pointing out that he is only the man on the planet most wanted by America. Pamela Geller, on the other hand, is most unwanted indeed by the UK, having been banned from entering the country and speaking at a rally organized by far-right group the English Defence League, or EDL. What Geller and Snowden share, however, is the unusual situation of their travel plans for this week being banjaxed by free speech concerns.
"banjaxed"????

Obama apparently thinks Snowden is inconsequential.

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.

Thread 6 – Day 14 (Week #3) Zimmerman Case – Witness Discussion Thread

Today, June 27th, is DAY #14 (of 3rd week) State of Florida V. George Zimmerman case.

Yesterday Witness #8, Rachael Jeantel, did indeed take the stand. She will be back today to complete her testimony.
This is the state’s key, and most important witness.

This is also the witness we have exhaustively researched. Having quietly followed her social media, and having talked extensively, to her school classmates for over a year.

But before we discuss Jeantel, a summary:

Now the gulf states want us to believe 'all is better now' thanks to advertising money from BP.

Fear grips Republicans

The U.S. Senate approved a landmark immigration bill on Thursday that would provide millions of undocumented immigrants a chance to become citizens, but the leader of the House of Representatives said the measure was dead on arrival in the House.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed the bill by a vote of 68-32, with 14 of the Senate's 46 Republicans joining all 52 Democrats and two independents in support of the bill.

But any air of celebration was tempered by House Speaker John Boehner, who hours before the vote emphasized that Republicans would "do our own bill," one that "reflects the will of our majority," many of whom oppose citizenship for immigrants who are in the United States illegally.

Any bill in the Republican-controlled House is expected to focus heavily on border security and finding immigrants who have overstayed their visas.

"Immigration reform has to be grounded in real border security," Boehner said.

Republican divisions over immigration were evident throughout the U.S. Capitol.

While Boehner was putting the brakes on the Senate bill, Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, delivered a passionate speech urging passage of the measure that he helped write.

"I'm not going to have one case with a suspect who we're trying to extradite suddenly be elevated to the point where I've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues, simply to get a guy extradited so he can face the justice system," Obama said at a joint news conference with Senegal's President Macky Sall.

Sounds right to me. Snowden is a traitor who will NEVER be allowed to return to the United States. The damage has already been done. Good riddance.
