The "American" people? Are you talking about a union of the american states, like Peru, Mexico, Canada and the United States? Wow, sharing the world's wealth is a good thought from you.

Typical corrupt thinking. Since you do it, you think everyone does it.

Lovely. It's like a burglar bragging that he locked your front door on his way out. Or a burglar that steals thousands, takes away your oil, and gives you back $20.
Obama is a lying twit.

You continue to beg on street corners, why, you won't take ownership of the choices you made in life.

Is it an energy issue or an election issue.
The OCCUPATION is not a part but the tactics are the same.

$2 billion down the tubes for useless green cars. The chevy volt is a massive failure, you give every yuppy purchaser $7500 to help pay for it and now Chevy is offering to buy them back. This is why we're broke.

Why do Chevy volt buyers deserve $7500 of your money?

Actually you could, it is how you build the house that matters more. There is a test house built in Colorado I was reading about, it had a heating and cooling system which had no moving parts and was cost free after it was built. Of course people would look at it and say they did not like the way it looked they want a house to keep up with the jones's.

If I had the money I would love nothing better than to put a earth sheltered or earth bermed home right next to the jones home that we are supposed to keep up with.

I can't find the article right away but I believe it was this home http://www.norishouse.com/PAHS/UmbrellaHouse.... which led to the establishment of the research center. It used geothermal to control the climate.

I had a link to to diary of a guy building an affordable earth sheltered home but I can't seem to find it.

I don't have to money but still hope to be able do to it. I am concentrating on converting my water heater and part of my home heat to one heated by hot water from the sun.

Are you assuming I support the Chevy volt??? Are you assuming I support the $7500 going to those who purchased the Volt? I don't. That doesn't make the current scheme of wealth re-distribution any better, it is just a way to change the subject to something you would prefer to talk about.
