Rumsfeld round two was a disaster of still to be determined proportions. Rumsfeld was actually a very good Secretary of Defense under Ford.

Ah, I think I mentioned before that that time period was a bit of a blur to me, my friend. I discovered, beer, girls, and a certain bud from Hawaii all at the same time. I do remember that Chevy Chase did a great impersonation of President Ford falling down all the time.

Now as Catch has said many times I'm dumb so don't expect much out of me but I'll take a stab at it anyway. Some of us, like me actually live the green life before celbs made it cool as they preach to us. I've never owned a car that didn't beat cafe mpg. But guess what, that's a choice I've made. Some may not like EPA swat teams being used to intimidate folks. Just saying.
"like me actually live the green life before celbs made it cool..."

Considering the "green energy" conversation has been underway since at least the 1973 Arab oil embargo, that's pretty astounding, Clearwater. By my calculations, you been "green" since before you were conceived. Youdaman!

Dropping phrases like "EPA swat teams" illustrates as well as anything how utterly shrill and irrational the partisan backlash has become. The Koch Bros thank you for your service.

If saving jobs is one of the reasons for the pro-coal anti-green backlash, why has more than a century of coal mining left Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia among the most impoverished in the nation?

Ironically, these are the same people who sneer at "lo-info voters" and decry partisanship - by the other guys. Helpful Tip - if you hear these kind of people rattle on about thieves, you best count the silverware before they leave the premises.
I mean, I don't pretend to be a climatologist. I recognize what a complex thing climate is to study, much less predict, and so saying, I still can't say I'm entirely convinced. But I can at least point to a couple facts and studies that cause me to be uneasy about our laissez-faire attitude about it, and cause me to lean to caution, in the interest of national security and more importantly, our children's future.
Sidebar - acknowledging here those, represented by such as LIT and other conservative friends, who do in fact respond with contraverting data.
Leaning toward caution is one thing. The EPA is not leaning toward caution on this. They are regulating businesses right out of business on the premise that man made global warming is exactly what John Kerry believes:“climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.’’ China et al don't agree and as we intentionally RE-cess, they look to us in disbelief and astonishment as they PRO-gress. I have a concern we are going to regulate ourselves lower in the world economy because of it and the ramifications of playing with windmills and solar panels will do to our economy what's it's done to the European market.

As a side note, some political academicians are in agreement that the true power in the US from this moment on is not the POTUS and congress. It lies in the hands of whoever heads up the EPA.

Germany's wind power chaos should be a warning to the UK

"Germany has gone further down the 'renewables' path than any country in the world, and now it's paying the price.

On Friday, September 14, just before 10am, Britain’s 3,500 wind turbines broke all records by briefly supplying just over four gigawatts (GW) of electricity to the national grid. Three hours later, in Germany, that country’s 23,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels similarly achieved an unprecedented output of 31GW. But the responses to these events in the two countries could not have been in starker contrast.

In Britain, the wind industry proclaimed a triumph. Maria McCaffery, the CEO of RenewableUK, crowed that “this record high shows that wind energy is providing a reliable, secure supply of electricity to an ever-growing number of British homes and businesses” and that “this bountiful free resource will help drive down energy bills”. But in Germany, the news was greeted with dismay, for reasons which merit serious attention here in Britain.

Germany is way ahead of us on the very path our politicians want us to follow – and the problems it has encountered as a result are big news there. In fact, Germany is being horribly caught out by precisely the same delusion about renewable energy that our own politicians have fallen for. Like all enthusiasts for “free, clean, renewable electricity”, they overlook the fatal implications of the fact that wind speeds and sunlight constantly vary. They are taken in by the wind industry’s trick of vastly exaggerating the usefulness of wind farms by talking in terms of their “capacity”, hiding the fact that their actual output will waver between 100 per cent of capacity and zero. In Britain it averages around 25 per cent; in Germany it is lower, just 17 per cent.
==

In brief, Germany’s renewables drive is turning out to be a disaster. This should particularly concern us because our Government, with its plan to build 30,000 turbines, to meet our EU target of sourcing 32 per cent of our electricity from renewables by 2020, is hell-bent on the same path. But our own “big six” electricity companies, including RWE and E.on, are told that they cannot build any replacements for our coal-fired stations (many soon to be closed under EU rules) which last week were supplying more than 40 per cent of our power – unless they are fitted with that make-believe CCS. A similar threat hangs over plans to build new gas-fired plants of the type that will be essential to provide up to 100 per cent back-up for those useless windmills.

Everything about the battle now raging in Germany applies equally to us here in Britain – except that we have only fantasists such as Ed Davey in charge of our energy policy"

Small side note: An acquaintance of mine from Germany lives near one of these windmill farms. He told me it employs 2 men working full time to walk around picking up dead birds the windmills kill when they fly through them.

But no worries.
( Liberal ornithologists are seeking government funding to retrain their beloved birds birds to walk instead of fly when they have the urge to travel.)

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

You can call that normal behavior, because it probably is among you liberals, but for most of us thats not normal..........

Don't see how why you'd be reminded of that, because Akin was painting with a pretty broad brush, whereas Hip was commenting about a specific instance that's being played out on a public forum for all participants to see.

Kind of a big difference, in my book.

The "specific instance" has been going on for 2 years, what's in YOUR book is irrelevant
and what Hips comment should or shouldn't remind me of, Willie isn't YOUR call to make.
And if you feel the need to "see why" I was reminded of it, I suggest you seek help for that. Your interest in weighing in on this is bizarre.

You two just feel obligated to butt into to everybody's everything, don't you?
Must be that liberal compulsion to control.

Thank you for your opinion on what is and isn't mine to comment on on this public forum. As I did yesterday when you suggested I find a new forum, I'll give that all the consideration it's worth. Actually, as evidenced by the fact that I've commented on both, I've obviously given it MORE consideration than it's worth.

What was that you were saying about control issues? Well, doc, talk to ME when ya make yaself all better.

I've had someone just as annoying as Catcher following me around for as long as I've been on Topix - and that's two years or so before they even started registering posters. There have been a couple of posters here in this thread who went a whole lot further in this thread than Catcher has done here with you, and the very poster who brought this issue back up this time dismissed it all as just trying to get my goat.

This is the internet. There are azzholes aplenty who seem to get their rocks off being as annoying as they can. The more you tell them how annoying they are, the more delight they take in it.

Catcher wins. Again. And the odd thing is, neither you nor he started this game.

Until next time ...
