"Regulated"
TRD, you are the one that used that word.
One way to get America back on the right track is ..de-regulate..
But it takes cohones to do it…
There is a big pile of things that got 'regulated' many moons ago … perhaps because of a good reason on those days.
It takes a leadership that has a vision, understands business, financing, nuclear engineering and environmental engineering… to reverse the process.
… and this is where you get started.
Deregulate the…. the nuclear energy industry.
Every fckkn city, county or even every country in the world, with a four million of inhabitants or more, depending on income per capita and standard of life … is a potential customer for a mini nuclear energy power generation station.
And the good news is, the gringos have it all. The know how and the means to undertake the production and installation.
Goddamned Americans, had it all almost ready to go, on the very early 70's, when I was going to college and dreamed about working for the nuclear power station in Dimona.
You forgot all about it already …. but you have already paid for the investigation, research and you already built a few mini fusion nuclear stations …by YOURSELF..
You are far ahead and have an edge on any other country that would dare to challenge you … and there's going to be competition on the axis of time once 'they' see it works and generates money..
All the security-safety aspects and disposal of by-products is another money making business … when you think about it.
How about financing the 'projects' to cities, counties and countries ..??…. another fckkn money making machine
But ….. regulating is a money making 'machine' too.(Think how many people are getting paid to prevent things from happening)
Now, how do you get the 'regulators' to de-regulate the business..?? You force them..!! You fire them. You change them.. you de-regulate them.
Less dependency on fuel is also a spin off that has a tremendous value.
And don't give me any shit about green energy. That's good for broiling a jar of coffee baking a pie and seating around to bull shit about it.
If you are going to manufacture, cars, refrigerator and TV's, just to name three items … you need ready power … not green energy.
TRD, I believe in America. I believe on your creativity and ingenuity … but you'll have to start working from the root to reverse what has been going on for the last …. mmmhh.. forty five years or thereabout..

I saw this movie...the Jew dies in the end.

Deregulation is the reason for some of the gravest issues we face at this moment. We trusted the banking industry and a decade later 35% of my children's inheritance is gone and I'm further from retirement than ever. We deregulated broadcasting and now the pinnacle of intellectual programming is...

Usually, I would rather glow in the dark than source my gas from middle eastern oil but lately, that gag steps a little too close to reality. Just when we were over 3 Mile Island along came Chernobyl. Just when we were over Chernobyl, along comes Fukushima. Look at the industry's track record, then look at Honey Boo Boo. Do we really want any more deregulation?

From someone well beyond the mythical retirement age, and with a portfolio that started late and took a real beating, 50%, I can only give you the upside. When the alarm goes off @ 5:00 AM, the old man goes in for the hot shower and marvels at the opportunity for another day of answering phones and communicating with aszholes and nice people. Retirement is all the mind. Look at my main man. He didn't make it. But, what a great time he had. Dennis Farina. Think he cared? I loved this guy. I'm sure his portfolio was awesome, but guess what?

I know, I know...you can't take it with you. I just figured that we'd be the ones pissing it away.

I was just reading about Farina on AOL and telling my daughter how much I admired his acting. He was one of those rare actors who could play both good and bad guys convincingly. Guess who else showed up in the news...

When I saw that yesterday, I thought, "he's hiding in plain sight". The uglies must be gnashing those crusted teeth at the good press he's getting and the imaginary hit squad running around in circles. I'm sure they are holding his piece out of spite, but George has got to be still packing. I love it.

Thanks, Y .... now I remember reading, many moons ago, that your son is into roofing ('roofing' for lack of a better technical term).
Our roof is a cast concrete slab... more than forty years old. On top of it there are a few layers of tar, in order to prevent the few inches of rain through the year, to leak into my bed and Turkish smuggled carpets..
At the top of the sunny season the temperature of the tar can reach, in USD's ... 140 degrees. At that temp tar deteriorates, cracks and gases forced under the layers produce storaging space for water. Painting the roof in white keeps the temperature down..
Since I have 3240 characters left on this message, for the same price ... how about having a pint of beer or a cup of wine to salute the Brits for the arrival of the new wannabe King..??

Your roof is constructed like we build bridges here in the states. Have you driven on it lately? I'm going to send you some info on a product that is what we use on similar roofs. As an Engineer, you can appreciate any information you can get and evaluate. Stay tuned.

I'm not going to ask you now for an advanced parcial payment for the station to be built around Orlando, because I understand that you are not ready for it yet.(I could have never been an auto or appliances salesman; I'm too compassionated)
The small fusion stations can be made safer, compact, sturdier and resilient, cutting by ten fold the risk of major disasters.
A well conceived and designed mini station can be the source of released heat for water desalinisation purposes... which I understand it is not a problem in the Amazonas and Orlando .. but it is a major problem in the Middle East, part of Africa and Asia.
The Frenchies are working on it. They did all the engineering in Dimona,(thanks Shimon Peres and David Ben Gurion)... and although Dimona is a fission type system, compartively it's also smaller and sturdier..
We suffer from regulation.
Take of our banking industry. They are a cartel with no real competition.
Israeli banks compete only on the size of the fringe benefits they vote themselves (the top cats) at all the banking institutions. We have this tragic-comic joke ... people don't tell the girl at the teller/counter position 'good morning' anymore; the bank charges a service fee for a 'good morning'... and even for breathing inside the bank they have a service fee.
We need foreign banks to enter this market ... but the mtthr fckkn regulators have a book, the size of Shanghai's phone book, with all the fckkn regulations that apply to a foreign bank.
But, hey ... they de-regulated the cellular phone money making machine ....(probably right after Honduras, Gabon, Borneo and Sumatra did it too).
We want to de-regulate the ports, the train, the electrical company ... but be patient,'we are working on it now'.

Good luck with that greed thing...it never happens here.

I got so excited when I read this article that I tried to build a new baby. The problems: for her...past her prime, for the tech...not yet mature.

If you drive the Florida Turnpike down south, you'll be unable to miss several man-made features in the landscape I like to cal "Mt. Trashmore". In fact, unless you are looking at one of our landfills you'd be hard pressed to find any topography at all in south Florida. I seriously considered pulling together my life savings and going for a sit-down with Mr. Longo. The possibilities were intoxicating for us, let alone for a country like Israel, Lebanon or Jordan. Put your garbage in the top, use the waste heat to generate more electricity than it consumes, use the outgas like natural gas, and build future cities out of bricks made from the slag. This guy deserves to jump around the regulatory line but if we except him, we'll have to pass a lot of stupid, dangerous stuff too.

http://www.popsci.com/scitech/article/2007-03...

I examine every issue on it's own merits and then try to estimate the damage done by the human factor. If we tried to pass a law mandating that any new technology needed to produce three times as many benefits as deficits, it would then filter through our elected gauntlet where people sell their votes for influence on their personal pet projects. For that reason we have laws which include buried provisions that have nothing to do with the intent of the original legislation. Sadly, some really important bills fail because they get loaded down with vote-buying favors which opponents feel compelled to defeat.

I'd laugh if we found out that the family he helped was black. I have a feeling that even if it were true the media would withhold that little factoid. It would work too fast at cracking the racist shell they built around the guy.

Great asz and a beautiful face. What more can you ask for. Head? What do you think about the proposed plan of putting thousands of our troops on the ground to support the Syrian revolution? Air strikes. Rounding up those chemical weapons. Is it that old "fcuked if we do, fcuked if we don't"? They will just turn around and bite the hand that helps them. I wouldn't do it. Fcuk em. Let them kill each other by the score. Less to worry about in the future. Drones, drones, drones. Lots of them. No identifiers, just plenty of ordinance. You in?

It would absofcukinglutely be a mistake for us to be involved in Syria under ANY circumstances. Know who should straighten out this bag of snakes? The Arab fcuking League. I am so convinced that this is a clusterfcuk of elephantine proportions that I wouldn't even commit satellite assets for fear we would want to act on the intelligence we'd glean.

It's an Arab issue, they need to fix it.
