Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., is calling on the Obama administration to explain why the survivors of last year's deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, were reportedly asked to sign non-disclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about the attack.
In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and CIA Director John Brennan, Wolf said his office has received reports that some survivors of the attack were asked to sign the confidentiality agreement as recently as this summer.
"If these reports are accurate, it would raise serious questions about additional restrictions the State Department has placed on those with knowledge of the Benghazi attacks,"

What happens to water that lands on solar collectors, does it burn up or something?
Grade school physics might be your salvation, bro.

I expressed a concern about whether or not Solar(whatever version) and cistern use is compatible. Snow and Ice buildup beneath panels (PV, Hot Water or otherwise) is always a concern and, even with just water alone, weight, thermal movement and structural stress can present water problems in roofs.

A roof covered in simple tiles is far less problematic than one tiled with solar boxes, panels, sealed circuits, etc.

So it comes down to either/or. Keep it simple, Stupid

Cisterns can be problematic. In urban areas, water run-off will be heavily polluted so collection only from roof-tops would be feasible. Rain washes the atmosphere during its nucleation and on it's way down. How clean is today's urban rainwater?
But where do you then place the Solar Panels? Can rooftop run-off be compatible with Solar Installations?
In suburbs and even in rural areas water run-off can be polluted with chemical over-sprays. Again, rooftop collection only.
But, again, where do you then place the Solar Panels? Under the Wind Farms shading the ground-cover causing desert fields and dust storms?
A cistern for every 100 acre farm is reasonable but a cistern on every rooftop in America shortchanges the aquifers. This cheating of the groundwater sources also happens with Municipal Storm Sewer containment designs. Aquifer depletion is a big problem across the country and especially in the Southwest....
There are no free lunches.
Cisterns for watering lawns and gardens, located at ground level.

Urban runoff does little to replenish aquifers.

A Michigan judge on Friday ordered Detroit's emergency manager to withdraw a federal bankruptcy petition filed on behalf of the city, Reuters reported.

Aquilina ruled in favor of Detroit retirees and workers who argued the Michigan Constitution protected the retirement benefits in their city pension funds.

I understand it must be diffcult to be as GD dumb as you are. When they talk about Clinton balancing the budget, it was for certain years.

Budgets go by fiscal year.

No one has ever claimed Clinton had a balanced budget his entire term.

OK.

The point is to understand the costs and how they can be controlled.

If we can believe another poster here, the head of the city water department would just sit back and do vision planning, confident that his managers were doing a great job.

Oddly enough, if she had killed him and claimed self defense, she'd be free like Zimmerman. Victim is dead, can't talk.
Imagine seconds of BEATING ...

==========

The beating lasted until Zimmerman shot Martin.

How long was Zimmerman beaten before he fired his gun? One witness called 911 while the assault took place.

The tape of that call runs 38 seconds, during which a voice is heard in the background repeatedly screaming for help.

According to the caller, the screaming had prompted her to call 911.

How long the screaming lasted before she called is unknown.

But,

adding that time - however long - to the 38 seconds on the tape establishes that the *allegedly* trigger-happy, bloodthirsty Zimmerman had been pinned to the ground taking a beating for 38-plus seconds before finally resorting to deadly force.

By this measure, Zimmerman acted with great restraint.

Well, that's the point about urban runoff. It can't go anywhere but into a storm drain. Not much exposed soil to enter into.

You must know a lot about St. Croix. But any island would do. Just picked that one out of thin air.

Anywhere where sane people still exist.

Elijah Cummings, for example...he might as well be from outer space as far as I'm concerned. Nuttier than a fruitcake. Cares nothing about the country. Just cares about Elijah Cummings and his and his party's lies and cover-ups.

From the comments on the speech by President Obama:

I do not like Obama one bit as President but I very much respect his reaching out on this sensitive topic.

Middle aged white guys like me have no understanding what it feels like to grow up black in America and, for many of us, the Zimmerman "not guilty" verdict is simple common sense -- the State failed to make its case.

By providing a personal context, the President has done a great service for the country.

President Obama
He's playing the Race Card again and losing more Americans in the process. Solidifying his racist base, yes. But losing to non-blacks who are tired of the skin games from the Racist-In-Chief.

Now...back to Benghazi, NSA, IRS, Fast n Furious, ObamaKare and his diplomatic failures abroad.

We've had enough diversion for this month.

I just did a quick retrieval of my encounters with jerk cops and can easily come up with a dozen or more. My skin is white.
The Race Card is dog-eared to a point that Jack is about to get his ass whupped for crying wolf again for the 10 millionth time in front of Liberal cameras on the Jesse Sharpton Dog & Pony Show....
I was once pulled over by a Detroit Cop for my bumper sticker during a Presidential Campaign. I was spread-eagled on my car's trunk at 4AM making me late for work. The cops had the wrong plate numbers. I was shoved into the back seat of a State Police cruiser by two black State Cops and told to shut up if I valued my life.
I was attacked while driving my car up to the P.O. Drop Box by some wacko street person. A passing cop pulled up and said to the guy "Jim! Get in the car and wait for me!". My car's hood and trunk sheet metal were dented and scratched because the guy walked across the entire vehicle stomping his feet. Bizarre.
Repeated calls to the P.D. got me nowhere. I finally gave up because that cop obviously knew Jim and was trying to protect him.
....and a long, long list of other Law Enforcement abuses.
But the Race Card crowd wants me to feel sorry for black males who are statistically the worst crime risks in all of America's melting pot. Profiling saves innocent lives.
Good post. Hope Lily read it.

"In a letter sent to President Barack Obama on Thursday, Laborers International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan wrote that the law has “destructive consequences” for the types of health plans that cover millions of unionized construction workers and their family members."
