One thing I admire about the Israelis ... they are unencumbered by fear of being "politically incorrect". The Arabs might hate 'em, but they fear them and they respect them ... they are trying real hard to be like them. You'd think with a big, tough ally like the United States, Israel would have nothing to fear. Yeah, right. The whole planet will be better off when they finally just have it out. If the rest of the world could just hold off joining in, it would be quite a show. We could pick our friends from amongst the survivors.

Yeah. I don't really wanna nuke anybody. That's crazy. "Beat your warheads into fuel rods" I say. But our young men and women splattering their blood and guts in that awful place ... that's not an acceptable option.

Explains why they did not have a problem attacking the USS Liberty, killing 34 American soldiers, they did not have a problem sending in a spy and selling what they learned from him to our worst enemies, they don't have a problem killing civilians, they target young children, they don't have a problem bombing schools and hospitals, and they are shy about mooching money from the USA.

Actually the price per kW of solar panels continues to drop. Right now the ROI is 10-15 years (depending on your sun exposure and available rebates).
I guess you missed my statement above: it takes 15 years to pay for themselves, and that includes US taxpayers picking up part of the tab, and that is in an area declared "good".

and of course: that is using the Chinese solar panels... so *I* end up helping pay for *your* panels and that money goes to China.

Dipstick.

Go to a solar website and make the calculation yourself. I am not interested in a zip code that puts you on the US/Mexican border in Arizona.

I guess you never been to a strip joint in Damascus or shared the plane with a hundred Ukraine hookers servicing the Middle East. Their "devoutness" is only a bluff.

He's knocking mussies and you call him "antisemitic"? Is our Topix mega-critic having trouble with words and terms today?

How long does it take a failing industry to "pay for itself"? How about if we shower them with bailout money? If we're gonna throw money around, building our own PV and wind gen factories would be a better investment.

Fine, I know of no websites that have that calculation on them. Please post one that calculates just the energy input cost to produce a solar panel in a factory.

Here's a thought: use Google.

You can enter your zip code and what you are charge per watt and get a loan and you enter the loan rate, and then calculate how long it takes to break even.

When it says 15 years, remember to remind me to tell you I told you so.

Do you remember telling us all how much you admired these killers?

You might also try to remember the last time the USA went to DefConIII (the real DefCon, not a Cheney PR stunt) and why.

Absolutly disgusting I seen that video on You tube of an Arab doing His Donkey. Couldn't help laughin' while feelin' like puking at the same time <nasty feeling> That a human being could stoop so low hard to figure. The producers said that was common behaviour in that village where there were few women. Can't understand Em at all I could never get steamed enough to be attracted to kids animals or another man. matter of fact I never bought a porno book or realy tried to look at one beyond a glance or two and that made Me feel kinda wrong. I met a man from West Africa that told me about the clean an unclean hand custom fer wipin' yer butt. Us indians used leaves, grass or something an cleaned up afterward like a human being should. Havin' morals don't mean Im shy around women just ain't a pervert.
