Have you seen the price of gas lately? They will make sure you pay somehow, someway. There are no alternatives anymore, other than breaking the law. I guess this wind energy thing isn't turning out to be a viable alternative either. It's expensive and it kills birds.
Its possible to operate a vehicle or any 4 cycle engine on firewood - dried horse manure- charcoal ect. The germans did it in WWII. Its called gassification. I bought a set of plans to build one fron the Mother Earth News magazine. Ive collected all of the parts (junk water heaters -pipe- stainless steel ect . to build one. Ive got a fully equipped shop with welders torches ect. I can build one without spending a nickle. I was thinking of installing one on a antique M farmall tractor. And build a cab with heat & air conditioning. No insurance needed and no alternative fuel tax required. If someone wanted to live off the commercial electric grid they would need a combination of wind, solar, and water power. and maybe a backup generator powered by a wood gassifer. A savonus Rotor windmill can be cheaply built from three 55 gallon barrells. it will turn with very little wind and doesnt require a govenor. I would really enjoy it if I could someday tell the electric coop to take a flying leap.

Showing your ignorance as usual. This planet has resources capable of sustaining 3-4 billion people long term, there are now 7.

It's dumbazzes like you, who don't have a frickin' clue, that will ignore fact and merrily march to the destruction of this planet.

Not that I care that much anymore given my age and the age of my children, but future generations probably will.

So would I. I have to pay $230 every year just to keep the electric turned on at my vacant property up north. I've never even used it. I can't have them shut it off or I won't be able to get it turned back on unless I build a house. I need it to stay on as a selling feature in case I decide to sell it. It's also a huge hunting area and someone may want to plug in a camper.

They have already taken over, even though I didn't vote for them. All I did was burn $6 worth of gas on election day. Don't you get it that elections are rigged??? Don't you get it that other than Rand Paul and Justin Amash, there isn't anyone worth voting for?

Yea real smart. That is the most stupid idea i've ever heard to give our nukes. You do mean the half that voted for obama is stupid. Because look who obama keep picking for his staff and government. The guy hasn't got a clue to what he's doing.
"That would be real smart since iran almost has some and korea is testing theirs."
How do YOU know this? Because that's what they said on TV? Again I ask, How do YOU know this?("YOU" is in bold type.)
Another question; name one country in the world whose media doesn't spew what the government tells it to.

It's been said that Obama took 100% of the vote in some counties. Just spew by the right-wing media? I don't know. But if it's true that means voting no longer counts in this country. Because it is IMPOSSIBLE for ANY candidate to take 100% of the vote ANYWHERE. Going to the polls just wastes gas and time. Screw it.

<quoted text>We don't need a new "party." There are plenty of parties already. What we need is to change the American mindset. That is one of entitlements, envy, jealousy and wanting to controlling others. People need to read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and hold their elected officials to the oath they take to protect and defend it. Freedom is letting people decide for themselves what their own pursuit of happiness is, as long as it doesn't interfere with another individuals' rights. The parties we currently have need to get back to the basics of what our founders laid out for us. If not, vote them out of office.
Well I agree with you that the constitution should be upheld. How does this mess we've got get turned around and we get back to the basics? We all can see what our Democratic leader has gotten us. Republicans are in name only. Something's going to give somewhere.

There isnt any tangible real difference between the democrats & republicans. bush was terrible Obama is horrible. Its a myth that one party or cantidate is one little bit better than their opponet. The UN -NWO and agenda 21 folks pick the cantidates from both partys. and they rig the elections.

<quoted text>Because Iran almost has some. They are working on it. America in iran's eyes "is the great satan" and Isreal "is the little satan". Have you not heard the president of iran(i call him little hilter) say that isreal should be wiped from the face of the earth. They have to get america out of the way so they can wipe isreal off the map. Sanitions are not stopping them. They have not got a nuke yet. But they will use them when they do. Korea does have nukes and they are threatening us. And it doesn't a genius to know this is their goal. And they hate america. I've done research. It wouldn't hurt you to do some research too.
You've done research my ass. The only research you did was sitting in front of your tv set memorizing the talking points of the commentator who only repeats what he is told to repeat by his superiors over our airwaves.

Frankly, I don't speak Iranian, so I don't know what Irans president said about Isreal. Nor do I care what he said. Talk is cheap. Have we not said the very same thing about other countries? We have nukes allegedly. Does that make us a huge threat to those countries that are our enemies? Should some other country disarm US because of what we might have said?

There is only one way to stop Obama from doing what he wants. And that is illegal. Bitching and moaning on Topix will get you nowhere. Calling your senator will get you nowhere. Going to the polls will usurp time and gas, still getting you nowhere. Quit stressing over it. We all had our chance to elect the ONLY candidate who have done the right thing for this country, but the media, controlled by the government, shut that man right down as soon as his vote numbers started threatening the chosen candidates the media was pushing on us.

<quoted text>Yea i know they were rigged. How do you think the deciever in chief won.
He won because the republicans effed up. They effed up bigtime as soon as they moved away from their roots and the principles laid down to us by our founders. If republicans are going to act like libs, hell, why not just vote for the libs? Republicans also suck at getting their message through to the poor and middle class that democrats will keep them down, in poverty, and dependant on government, as we (some of us) see happening.

Poor and middle class people are not thriving under Obama, but they don't even know it because he's a better talker than any of the mouthpieces for the republicans. Remember, if something is repeated enough times, people will start to believe it.

Republicans need to get back to our founding principles AND learn to communicate better. Until then, any close elections will be won by the dems.

"How does this mess we've got get turned around"
When you get yourself into a mess at home, what do you do?
Number one answer: QUIT SPENDING.
Find other ways to save and bring in revenue (legally of course.)
Sell stuff you no longer need or use.
Downsize your home.

That would be a good start.

Hagel volunteered to join the United States Army during the Vietnam War veteran, returning a draft board recommendation he go to college instead. He served in the United States Army infantry in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968. Holding the rank of Sergeant (E-5), he served as an infantry squad leader in the 9th Infantry Division Hagel served in the same infantry squad as his younger brother Tom, and they are believed to be the only American siblings to do so during the Vietnam War They also ended up saving each other's lives on separate occasions. While serving during the war, he received the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, two Purple Hearts, the Army Commendation Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.
OH yeah, he is a Republican also.
That's a nice resume you carry there for Hagel. He wasn't the only pair of siblings to serve in Vietnam, your gooogle search failed you there. Your little love fest with Hagel has nothing to do with what I postd. Hagel is still an idiot. That is the difference between Conservatives and liberals. Conservatives will call out one of their own when he is an idiot. liberals will defend their idiots until the very end no matter what, that is why your party is so filled with IDIOTS barney!

Read it again Dumb Ass;

"Hagel served in the same infantry squad as his younger brother Tom, and they are believed to be the only American siblings to do so during the Vietnam War .

"same infantry squad", idiot.

"He wasn't the only pair of siblings"

I am sure "he" is not a "pair" either.

Like usual you have to use words like "Believed" because YOU do not know the facts!
Maybe you should switch to google, bing makes you look really stupid there in Salem!
