I use an Aims 5000 watt inverter, I got for about $200 a few years ago.

Too power up his own home with A.C.
His power bill is much cheaper than mine, and probably everyone else on here.
I believe about the only utility bills his gets is from the phone company........and that is for a DSL signal, maybe T.V., but even these, he powers them up himself.
Gotta give credit where credit is do!
I just wish our President Obama and Congress would get together and give real subsidies for alternative power generation. Yeah I know, there have been attempts at this, but we as a Nation can't give up, we as a Nation have to start leading again not with the power of bombs and bullets but with new ways of generating electrical power.

I hope they'll start working on keeping the President's college thesis (and a lot of other stuff) under wraps next!!..I'm still undecided who looks more like Alfred E. Newman....David "Woman killer" Patraeus, or Bobby "rino in chief" Jindal!
Wheeeeew....I feel better now! I just hope "Crispy Creme" is still standing in five days!

Off the top of my head with out doing a lot of research I would say Olafur Ragner Grimsson the President of Iceland.Nigel Farage from the UKs independent Party as Vice President.I'm not stopping here either.I'm on a roll.
I'd keep Bernie Sanders and I'd bring in some of these whistleblowers that had stood up for what was true even though they knew they would lose there jobs and even perhaps their life.
Major house cleaning at the FDA, USDA (I think I like where Cornbread is coming from so at the Top of the USDA for Cornbread)
I'd bring in alternative medicine to the front of the line yes people before profit.
This is just for starters OT and if you grassfeed your cows and do not feed them GMOS and they live a happy life your in at the USDA also.
Interesting choices... considering that both preside over parlamentary coalition style governments where the President always has much less power than the Prime Minister.
On the USDA appointment...thanks but I respectfully decline. If my farming methods and model were used across the country, we would be unable to grow enough food to feed our own citizens, let alone maintain any ag. exports. It has been several years since farming has contributed a significant portion of my income and I know a lot of farmers locally, all of which now require off-farm income to survive. To make a living farming like you propose would require a large jump in food prices, and that is just what would happen if the USA moved toward that model. Food supplies would tighten and prices would rise A LOT.
I think there is room in the healthcare system for alternative medicine, but I for one do not want to return to the days before modern medicine could treat heart disease with balloons and stents, before heart bypass surgery. Back to the days when the only medicine for heart disease was digitalis and rest. How many lives have been spared and how much quality of life was returned to those who have been treated with these breakthroughs alone in just this ONE area of medical treatment ??
I found it interesting that both of your choices for President are from countries that have universal healthcare systems which provide less choice for patients than the ACA...yet if memory serves, you think the ACA is too restrictive.
We do agree on keeping Bernie though....! Chuckles !!

Sequestration...

All the "cuts" are a bunch of smoke and mirrors.

Its .25% of 1% cut in PROJECTED GROWTH~! So for all the "falling off the cliff" and "drastic cuts"..... What current programs are really being cut? NONE. Only PROJECTED GROWTH is to be cut.

So.... What the hoooaaaah are all these clowns in the media and politics jumping up and down about?

Here is where EVERY American should be pissed AT THE POLITICIANS of both parties.

Instead of cutting waste, blatant fraud (solyndra), and unconstitutional federal meddling which could easily account for 5-10% of Federal spending, they are targeting employees and groups who will be most hurt, and cutting them disproportionally.
Hell, New York is now pushing for Food stamps for PETS!!!!

Anyhow...how much are the "cuts"?

For comparison a family, business, or whatever entity spending $1000 per week would have to cut $23 per week.

In addition since the federal budget starts in October and the cuts won't go into effect until March the amount of the cut is only 7/12 the figure being touted. It's a miniscule amount.

If anyone suffers from this, it's by design.

Obama... is going to close parks, punish workers by cutting their hours, and reduce air traffic controllers...

He intends to make it as painful as possible for the Pubs not giving him his way. "Punish your enemies" and all that.

Wow, what a leader.

My choice of Iceland's President and Nigel Farage didn't have anything to do with parlamentary coalition style governments.
Mr.Iceland stood up to the Banksters and actually (not pretend he would do this)rounded up a posse and went after the crooks and Iceland is in recovery.That was my reason.As far as Nigel Farage goes he's been slaming those idiots up one side and down the other.I'll bet he likes Mr Iceland himself.

Three points "Nuh". First, I disagree with the premise that there is 5 to 10% that can painlessly be cut from the Federal Budget. Second, this is not the time to further constrict the money flowing into the economy. Each cut in spending by ANYONE results in ripples felt throughout the economy at a time when the economic recovery is faultering....some would say because of the expiration of the payroll tax cuts that consumers felt in their paychecks recently. Third, government is not a business. It is by design called upon to spend more, not less in recessionary cycles. The time to make cuts in government spending is in good economic times, not bad ones.
There will need to be cuts and tax increases in the future but in my opinion, NEITHER should take place now...Let's let the economy strengthen, and unemployment will fall. As more folks get back to work, tax revenues will rise and the cuts will not need to be as severe or the tax increases as large. Pulling money out of this economy NOW is a sure recipe for slower growth and maybe a double dip recession.

This is just an example of how different our economic views are.

What you are describing, the gov't spending more during recessionary cycles, is Keynesian economics. It does not work - never has. Just recently, the $787 Billion stimulus - where's the benefit? Where are the jobs?

THIS IS AWESOME - A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

Georgia state House seeks to repeal the Seventeenth Amendment

One hundred years ago, the United States ratified an amendment to the Constitution that changed the way America chose its senators. The amendment's supporters said that senators directly elected by the people would not only be more democratic, but also less corrupt and less susceptible to special interest influence.

Instead of reducing corruption, however, changing the method of Senate selection provided entirely new avenues of political exploitation by fundamentally transforming our federal government. Most importantly, the amendment destroyed the federalist structure that the Founding Fathers installed to protect state sovereignty.

Today, members of the Georgia House of Representatives seek to restore state representation to the federal government by reviving the Founders' original intent. The goal of House Bill 273 is “to protect the sovereignty of the states from the federal government and to give each individual state government representation in the federal legislative branch of government” by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment.

Of course, this resolution would not necessitate any action or response from the federal government should it pass, but it could spark a national debate on the concept of federalism, unconstitutional government, and the Founders' original intent.

Why was the Seventeenth Amendment ratified?

As the Founding Fathers drafted the Constitution, they understood that free and independent states, fresh from a long and costly war with England, would not approve of a charter that required them to totally surrender their sovereignty to a new federal government. To balance the legitimate concerns of the states with the need to preserve the union and form a national government for mutual protection and prosperity, the Founders chose a federalist system of divided powers between the states and the proposed federal government.

They also passed a Bill of Rights, ensuring that any power not specifically granted to the federal government rested with the states or the people themselves. The Founders clearly wanted a limited federal government balanced by the state governments.

Prior to 1913, state legislatures appointed members to represent their state in the federal government, while the people directly elected members of the House of Representatives. The House represented the people and the Senate represented the states. This clever design balanced the will of the people and the sovereignty of the states, and the federal government was largely restrained from growing beyond its constitutional limits.

The federalist system was not understood by the people 100 years ago, and certainly isn't understood today. The Founders sought to craft a system ruled by law – the Constitution – and not a rule of man. That is why the United States is a constitutional republic and not a pure democracy. They knew that just government must have consent of the people, but that total democracy would inevitably lead to a tyranny of majority, which could strip state and individual liberty as easily as a monarch.

“The Constitution does not protect the sovereignty of the States for the benefit of the States or state governments as abstract political entities,” wrote Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor,“To the contrary, the Constitution divides authority between federal and state governments for the protection of individuals. State sovereignty is not just an end to itself.”
