The law did prohibit Jews and other persecuted classes from owning guns, but this should not be an indictment of gun control in general. Does the fact that Nazis forced Jews into horrendous ghettos indict urban planning? Should we eliminate all police officers because the Nazis used police officers to oppress and kill the Jews? What about public works — Hitler loved public works projects? Of course not. These are merely implements that can be used for good or ill, much as gun advocates like to argue about guns themselves. If guns don’t kill people, then neither does gun control cause genocide (genocidal regimes cause genocide).
Besides, Omer Bartov, a historian at Brown University who studies the Third Reich, notes that the Jews probably wouldn’t have had much success fighting back.“Just imagine the Jews of Germany exercising the right to bear arms and fighting the SA, SS and the Wehrmacht. The [Russian] Red Army lost 7 million men fighting the Wehrmacht, despite its tanks and planes and artillery. The Jews with pistols and shotguns would have done better?” he told Salon.
Proponents of the theory sometimes point to the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising as evidence that, as Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano put it,“those able to hold onto their arms and their basic right to self-defense were much more successful in resisting the Nazi genocide.” But as the Tablet’s Michael Moynihan points out, Napolitano’s history (curiously based on a citation of work by French Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson) is a bit off. In reality, only about 20 Germans were killed, while some 13,000 Jews were massacred. The remaining 50,000 who survived were promptly sent off to concentration camps.

Let's see now....
Suppose the jews were only able to trade Hitler one-for-one.
Do you think Hitler had 6 million Nazis to spare?
Do you think Hitler would have been gotten rid of before they traded the first million Nazis?

Who the f**k is calling that idiot a "historian"?

To do what your so-called "historian" claims, Hitler would have had to turn the full weight of his war machine against an armed jew population.

Hitler would never have been able to accomplish what he did against an armed population.

One-for-one is a winning situation for partisans, and a losing situation for a government.

""HOW A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM WORKS
Throughout the year, outdoor temperatures fluctuate with the changing seasons. However, about four to six feet below the Earth's surface, Wisconsin temperatures remain relatively moderate and consistent all year (about 50 degrees F, in WI). This is because the Earth absorbs 47% of all heat and energy from the sun that reaches the surface. A geothermal system circulates a water-based fluid through a buried loop system to take advantage of these consistent temperatures.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT CYCLE
During the heating process, fluid in the loop absorbs heat from the earth. It is transferred to the unit located in the home. The geothermal system distributes the warm, comfortable air by either a conventional duct system or radiant heat system.
----------
The heat exchange is with the earth, nitwit!! If you have a pond on your property, the 'pond loop' system can be used, but is less efficient, as surface water temp. changes quickly.
Geothermal systems NEVER uses aquifiers, due to possible pollution from the anti freeze or other chemicals in the geothermal loop.
You are the biggest idiot on this thread.
<quoted text>
All your Wikipedia crap refers to one type of geothermal system. Other types do circulate and reinject aquifer water, with appropriate permitting, particularly in places like Iceland and Japan where natural hot springs occur.

Even environmentally sensitive areas such as Long Island employ open loop geothermal systems.

http://pbisotopes.ess.sunysb.edu/reports/enge...

http://dspace.sunyconnect.suny.edu/bitstream/...

"Open loop geothermal systems typically include one or more supply wells and one or more diffusion, recharge, return or injection wells. In an open loop geothermal well system, groundwater is withdrawn from an aquifer through the supply well and pumped to a heat exchange device where it acts as a heat source or sink in the heating or cooling process. A typical heat exchange device is a plate heat exchanger, in which a non-contact, nonconsumptive
process takes place between the groundwater and the building’s internal circulation water. Heat is transferred between the two waters without ever physically coming into contact or mixing with one another. Once the groundwater passes through the heat
exchange device it is returned to the aquifer through a diffusion well(s). The only difference between the supply and return water is the temperature. The open loop system is one of the
more common systems found on Long Island and is utilized in both large and small scale applications."

It's liberals who should be banned and forbidden from owning guns. YOU people kill people. Whether it's on the streets, with drones or in an abortion clinic, blacks are killing themselves at an unprecedented rate.

Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings from your "culture of violence" are not by someone clinging to their guns and religion or angry white men.

Why is it that none of the disturbed and hate-filled liberals, who take or steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in schools, has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

showing the direction the wind is blowing....

The National Rifle Association distanced itself Tuesday from a comment made by a lobbyist for one of its “chartered organizations” in Wisconsin, who said recently that gun rights proponents need only to wait out the “Connecticut Effect” before passing laws loosening restrictions on guns.

Earlier in the day, the line drew the ire of Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who called on NRA leadership to “repudiate and reject” it. In an email to TPM, the NRA didn’t do that, but it did say its organization had nothing to do with the lobbyist who made the comment.

“Bob Welch is neither a staff lobbyist nor a contract lobbyist for the National Rifle Association,” the NRA said in an email.“He does not speak for the NRA.”

Welch’s comment was first reported by ThinkProgress, which described him as a “lobbyist” who “represents the Wisconsin NRA group.” Blumenthal picked up that description in his comments Tuesday.

While it’s not clear whether Welch, a former Wisconsin state legislator, has ever been paid by the NRA to lobby the state legislature in Wisconsin, it is clear that he and the group he represents has claimed to speak for the NRA in the past.

Welch is a registered lobbyist for Wi-FORCE (Wisconsin Firearm Owners, Ranges, Clubs & Educators, Inc.). The Wi-FORCE website is emblazoned with the words “An NRA Chartered State Association” as well as a newsfeed from the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the group’s lobbying arm.

<quoted text>
You are a f*cking ignorant idiot.
Firstly, geothermal heating is easy. Geothermal cooling is very difficult.
If you jsut turn the electricity on in a building, the current consumption will heat the building. That is why it is necessary to cool large buildings in the winter, idiot. The electrical power consumed turns into heat energy.
It works like this.
The building is a heat source.
The Earth is a heat sink.
Heat is transferred from the source to the sink.
The temperature of the sink rises, eventually to be in equilibrium with the building. The combination of the source and sink are a closed system.
To maintain the effectiveness of the heat sink, the heat transferred from the building to the sink has to be removed, or there will eventually be an equilibrium state where heat removed will equal heat given back to the building.
To dissipate the heat, mass flow is used.
Mass flow comes from an aquifer, within which water travels down-dip, and takes the heat with it. The heat from the building being carried by the water in the aquifer dissipates through conduction to the surface.
There is a finite distance of travel for the aquifer to dissipate a specific amount of heat from the building.
If another building is placed down-dip, the aquifer carrying the heat from the first building will cause the temperature beneath the second building to be higher than beneath the first building, thus reducing the efficiency of the geothermal cooling system.
Each successive building down-dip will be successively less efficient.

Geothermal heating:
Drill a hole deep enough to reach the tmperature desired. Pump water through that zone, then circulate it through the building.

In something like a high-rise office building, the energy consumption is so great, even during winter the building needs to be cooled when peak daytime operation conditions are reached and maintained throughout the day/night.
