DumbSince1680 is a clueless twit. She has no clue what she is talking about, or reading for that matter.

With people like her, It's no wonder Obama was elected twice.

Good morning...note the same trolls posting under ten names :-)
Scott Walker hates Obamacare.
But Scott Walker also needs Obamacare.
The Wisconsin Republican governor, a potential 2016 contender for the White House, has drawn national attention to his ambitious health reform effort to cover the poor in his state without buying into the president’s health care plan.
We don't need no stinking O'bamacare. Scott Walker would make a great president, you libs have vetted him to the 15th power. There is nothing less to uncover.

It's ridiculous. We're becoming a police state. However, it has much to do with the private prison industry who need a steady stream of customers that the taxpayers pay for. Why is it okay for a cop to pretend he is a drug dealer and then seize the customers cash and car? Doesn't that make them just as bad as a thief doing a car jacking?
The War On Drugs is simply a ruse to set up a police state. I believe that with all my heart even though I smoked in a long time. The future of this country is in deep peril and it has nothing to do with left or right which is a game set up to hypnotize the masses.

By 'strict conservative' do you mean a cocaine snorting, repressed homosexual, bible toting evangelical, with a Stepford wife and a penchant for lying?

I do like that word penchant, please do let me know if I overuse it.

Bush flew a F-102 trainer (not an actual "fighter jet") fitted with a side-by-side cockpit to facilitate ease of pilot training. Bush never got in the necessary flight hours to qualify for combat. Merely past time to avoid Viet Nam.
The only cockpit O'bama ever was fitted with was some other man's ass.

A durable, low-cost water splitter made of silicon and nickel
New fuel cells can more efficiently generate electricity when the sun isn't shining or demand is high

This image shows two electrodes connected via an external voltage source splitting water into oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2). The illuminated silicon electrode (left) uses light energy to assist in the water-splitting process and is protected from the surrounding electrolyte by a 2-nm film of nickel.(Credit: Guosong Hong/Stanford University)
Stanford researchers have developed an inexpensive, corrosion-free device that uses light to split water into oxygen and clean-burning hydrogen.
The goal is to supplement solar cells with hydrogen-powered fuel cells that can generate electricity when the sun isn’t shining or demand is high.
The novel device — a silicon semiconductor coated in an ultrathin layer of nickel — could help pave the way for large-scale production of clean hydrogen fuel from sunlight, according to the scientists. Their results are published in the Nov. 15 issue of the journal Science.
“Solar cells only work when the sun is shining,” said study co-author Hongjie Dai, a professor of chemistry at Stanford.“When there’s no sunlight, utilities often have to rely on electricity from conventional power plants that run on coal or natural gas.”
A greener solution, Dai explained, is to supplement the solar cells with hydrogen-powered fuel cells that generate electricity at night or when demand is especially high.
Water splitting
To produce clean hydrogen for fuel cells, scientists have turned to an emerging technology called water splitting. Two semiconducting electrodes are connected and placed in water. The electrodes absorb light and use the energy to split the water into its basic components, oxygen and hydrogen. The oxygen is released into the atmosphere, and the hydrogen is stored as fuel.
When energy is needed, the process is reversed. The stored hydrogen and atmospheric oxygen are combined in a fuel cell to generate electricity and pure water. The entire process is sustainable and emits no greenhouse gases.
fuel cells have been around for decades and the federal government has spent billions trying to develop this technology on a large-scale basis, without success....

still basically a laboratory experiment...

That was totally dumb!
Policies are not usually mass canceled.
The mass cancellation triggered the drop in Obama's numbers as Americans realized that Obama LIED to them when he said "If you like your policy, you can keep it."
Policies are changed every single year....deductibles change, formularies change, drug payment stages change. In essence, a person's previous policy no longer exists. You can't exactly keep something that doesn't exist.

My insurance policy is grandfathered. Every year I get a new policy declaration with changes from the previous year. That's the way insurance works.

This year, my insurance company increased my premium by $18 to avoid increasing my deductibles which would have caused cancellation of my policy.(Wouldn't really matter though since my insurance covers all the basics required under the ACA).

If you want to blame someone for the cancellation of grandfathered policies, blame the insurance companies. There was no reason for them to make changes that affected the Grandfathered status of those policies. NONE! Other cancellations are warranted because those policies were sub-standard in the first place.
