A drop in speed saves more than a drop of gas

The old double nickle scam is once again rearing it's head I see. The lamebrained POTUS in the 70's came up with that load of bull as well as freezing your gonads off and it FAILED. It was a joke. The National Motorists Association estimates that 95 percent of drivers regularly exceeded the federal speed limit when it was in effect. In other words, it worked almost as well as Prohibition. The law also cost Americans an extra one billion hours in their cars each year. If the enviro-nuts want to feel good about themselves by driving slower, they are welcome to do so... in the far-right lane, of course. Guess those who drive slower forget it takes you longer to go to your destination thus the fuel savings is barely negligible. For the country to waste a billion hours in their cars burning more fuel is totally stupid.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #29)

Global warming a scam to enrich a few at cost to many

Willard here is a bit more to the Windspire comments: Windspire will produce approximately 2000* kilowatt hours per year in 12 mile per hour average winds. Not a lot of places have that kind of wind. Good idea for some places and not so good for the majority of places. According the North Carolina Wind Resource Map the only places with wind sufficient to use this type of power are located on the coast and that decreases dramatically as you move inland.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #51)

Global warming a scam to enrich a few at cost to many

Windspire is good if you live in an area that has constant wind. It would not work in areas such as WNC or much of the Appalachian area. That system works ok in Texas and the other plains states northward since it is more level and the intensity of wind is greater. I just saw one of the contraptions over near Eagle Mountain/Eagle Lake last weekend. It produces less than half of the power needed for a house less than 3000 sqft. To satisfy the demand the house would need two if not three. So much for that plan for houses built on less than an acre. The company Mariah is located in Reno and has done research with Texas A&M. The house was one of the test units.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #50)

Global warming a scam to enrich a few at cost to many

Willard , 3 Mile Island was another scam. You might have been scared but of what? The media, that made a big deal out of nothing more than an overheated reactor that caused zero damage to anything and anyone. What a crock of chit Williard sure you can find a better lie than this to present. Wonder where France Japan the UK and the rest of the countries that use nukes for power have over come the now non-problem. They are now recycling the waste and the problem is solved. Try doing some research first Willard . It might keep you from looking as stupid as Gordon. Here is just a tidbit of information Willard that you can find if you just take time to look. 'All waste management solutions, not just nuclear, involve moving waste from one place to another. Household garbage is moved to a landfill and a small portion is recycled. That's because, although uneconomic, it is politically correct to do so. A large portion of so-called "nuclear waste" could also be economically recycled but this is currently politically incorrect, at least in the United States. France, the United Kingdom, and Japan are basing their long-term programs on recycling.'  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #49)

Don't give a chit who you believe. The e-mail spoke the truth. Unfortunately someone posted it with Jeff's full name rather than the xxxxxx out as I did and now he has to do a retraction. What a shame that the truth about this empty suit can not be spoke . It seems the LSM has a rule against anything negative being written about the arrogant , egotistical, empty suit who is as qualified to be POTUS as my bird, who by the way speak better than he without a teleprompter.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #50)

Sour Lemons ,You are almost as stupid as Coates. At least you didn't imagine you read that the Captain's name is Gannon. So far two of the three stoogies have shown the rest of the forum just how stupid they are. How does it feel to be in the same category as Coates, Lemons ? hahahahaah BTW my friend is no liar but you are still stupid as hell.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #39)

The only thing Coates has a grasp on is his wiener. But don't forget Coates has inside information on all military moves, those stationed where and what they do. He got all this from being the "latrine queen" at FtHood and his connections he made there. Coates is the forum fool and never learns anything. He just keeps sinking deeper and deeper into stupidity.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #38)

Dumb azzx Coates as usual depends on the LSM and hearsay for his facts. Hey Coates where did I mention the name Gannon. You must have really been misinformed by your fly on the wall or your crystal ball.What a total fool you are. Oh, I forgot Coates has a plant inside the military that keeps him informed on all this. hahahaha. The fact is that Obama does his basketball routine on a regular basis. Maybe the empty suit should apply for job as ball boy with one of the pro teams. He would certainly be more qualified according to all the LSM photo ops of him playing basketball. Listen You idiot, when my friend sends an email to his wife, he tells it like it is regardless of what you wish to believe. You continue to prove yourself the fool over and over Coates. You just never seem to learn do you? Now go back to the basement Coates and play with your SS toys.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #36)

As usual Coates makes another stupid statement without searching the facts. Try it sometime you idiot and stop proving yourself the fool over and over again. How does it feel to be totally stupid Coates?

And you are an Obamazombie. I state truth from one who was there. One whom I know and you call my friend a liar. You're so full of chit your brain needs an enema. The New York Daily doesn't know my friend and he has never spoken to a newspaper so you are wrong as usual and the LSM is once again oh and ahhhing over the empty suited charlatan. Until you can post facts, that means the link , which by the way is not there,that use my friend name as the one the NY paper so called debunked your still an idiot quoting the Lame Stream Media. Now either prove by name that my post is wrong or shut the hell up. Truth hurts doesn't it Obamazoid.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #32)

Global warming a scam to enrich a few at cost to many

Read the article lamebrain. He built the models for what the idiots like Stern, who by the is an economist and not a scientist and Gore , who is nothing but an idiot, a has been senator, and is the "god of global warming" to the worshipers of such. So now you were saying what about Dr. Evans? BTW Dr David Evans was a consultant to the Australian Greenhouse Office from 1999 to 2005. I suggest you check the credentials of the IPCC idiots who refuse to enter any information that does not follow their agenda and you will find that most of them have no background in anything to do with weather.  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #31)

His entire tour is a sham. I got this e-mail and no it is not one of those that has been passed around from who know where. The people in this one are real and I am proud to know them. Here is what one who was there had to say about Obama's grandstanding. Hi all FYI--for what freedom is worth. Tiffany and Jeff xxxxxx are our friends who live in Virginia . --------- Forwarded Message --------- I don't know each of your personal political convictions, and apologize if anyone finds this offensive. I thought it was important enough to share. This is Jeff's first hand view of Senator Obama. Tiffany ================== ================== ============= Tiffany was being nice and I frankly don't care if this offends you or not. It's truth and if you can't stand the truth then tough! (Ticker) ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to 'The War Zone'. I wanted to share with you what happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle , got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers where lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service. So really he was just here to make a showing for the American's back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheer leaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States . I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-and-Chie f. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country. If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in the ne ws is all fake. In service, CPT Jeffrey S. xxxxxxxx Battle Captain TF Wasatch American Soldier The "empty suit" is just that, an empty suit. I have said so from the day one and will not retract what I have said. He is on an ego power trip and is no more qualified to be POTUS than my bird, who by the way can talk better than he can without a telepromter. LOL!  (Jul 25, 2008 | post #14)

Myth of Consensus Explodes

In other words one of their own seems to have call BS on their agenda and they are pissed. Sounds like a bunch of sour grapes to me. LOL I am still waiting for you to refute or present clear evidence against the Dr. David Evans article. Your APS doesn't cut it. They are nothing more than a group who meets a couple of times a year and makes statements in order to gain some federal funding to keep their agenda alive. Yep, I read their history.  (Jul 18, 2008 | post #16)

Air quality officials issue code orange health notice

You can join you buddy Harry Reid and share this award! This week’s ‘Alpha Jackass’ award “Coal makes us sick, oil makes us sick; it’s global warming. It’s ruining our country, it’s ruining the world. We’ve got to stop using fossil fuel.” —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Searchlight) Welcome to the club of leftist stupidity who have no answers but sure do complain about everything. You can also join the rest of the whacko's in the article quoted below, who continually bring obstruction to the growth and progress of the country regardless of the cost. After all their agenda is priceless while the rest of the country can go to hell. "Environmenta lists are gleeful over their success in blocking the creation of 100-plus jobs and millions of dollars in revenue for one of Georgia’s poorest counties. Well, they wouldn’t quite put it that way, of course. But according to the Atlanta Journal-Constituti on, such would have been the benefits of a coal-fired power plant, construction of which State Superior Court Judge Thelma Wyatt Cummings Moore injudiciously blocked last week. Citing the Supreme Court’s decision requiring the EPA to regulate the emission of CO2, which, incidentally, is both botanically necessary and harmless to humans and animals, Moore nixed the 1,200-megawatt plant in Early County, leaving many to wonder how the state will meet its rising electricity needs in the future. To make matters worse, the rewards of bowing at the altar of global warming are guaranteed to be virtually nonexistent. Patrick Michaels, senior fellow for environmental studies at the Cato Institute, notes that even if every nation adopted the Kyoto Treaty, the world would rein in global warming by a mere seven-hundredths of a degree Celsius. So while the Sierra Club elitists herald “a new day,” Georgia’s workers are left to live that day facing continued economic difficulties, thanks to global warming’s mindless minions and one duly-deluded judge."  (Jul 18, 2008 | post #5)
