1000 watts is very little once you consider what energy is used to carry the unit onboard a vehicle, the fact that an engine is not used at WOT at all times, and that the efficiency will vary depending on the environment in which it will be operated.
Combine that with the fact that 1000 watts will just barely operate my PC with a 95% load.
The point is, the article made a big deal about all the billions of gallons of fuel that are consumed. Something that represents less than a 1% extraction of energy is going to do NOTHING to reduce the military's dependence on foreign oil. So take that, Mr. IED.

FINALLY someone realizes besides me that this is “old tech”.

It has also been found that those that stated “He had his hands up.” LIED to the Grand Jury and PERJURY charges have been thought over. Give it up AL. You’re fighting a “battle of wits” with NO AMMUNITION!
I'll try not to let it catch fire if I ever find myself in the lucky position of owning a Super Duty.

So YOU “brand” Dinesh D’Souza a “felon”. So what does that make Harry reid for “gifting” tens of thousands of dollars of campaign monies to his grand daughter as a “gift”? If there are any FELONS here, HARRY REID AND HIS WEINER SON ARE IT. As for Glenn’s “comments”, th “jury is still out” in my own personal feelings. I agree with Glenn on MANY things. NOT on this one.

BETTER “rule”. Band together and BEAT THE LIVIN’ $HIT out of the “bullies”. Send them out of school on a gurney.

It seems lately that GB and the Blaze and getting all “peacenik”. Sometimes THE GLOVES HAVE TO COME OFF. Do we sit idley by and let the government walk all over us? I can see NO SENSE with respect to the issue of the “cow and the tortoise” other than the cow is “faster”. These two species have been coexisting for years. Why the change now? Maybe the folks at the Blaze need to “grow a pair”?

A “lesser man” would have launched a “para military raid” to GET HIS KID. Hire some mercs to “bust her out” then go someplace where they can’t be “touched”. But that takes $$$$$. The state has BLED THEM DRY with legal fees. All part of their plan. The people of the state of Connecticut should SUE to recover the legal costs incurred by the state and have them put BACK in the state’s treasury. The PEOPLE are paying for BGH’s legal fees too. Sounds like an “unfair advantage” by all these entities against the Pelletiers.

These are the Russian citizens that Putin is trying to advance in economic stature? It seeems to me their “death wish” makes them better candidates as “crash test dummies”.

I’m SURE it’s just “breaking your heart” that the “goat ropers” find your names “prohibited”. LOL! I know you’re just DYING to go to the “Land of Female Servitude”. NOT! Good thing the names like “Inertia” or “Genitalia” aren’t on the “list”.

Try “drinking and smoking dope” when you’re responsible for the maintaining and repair of ultra low temperature refrigeration equipment used in the production of materials for the medical industry. Blood analyzers in particular. That’s what this UNION Pipefitter/HVAC-R service tech did for a living among other things. Working with HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICITY as high as 4160VAC. You must have been working with the UAW. DON’T group ALL union crafts persons with those slugs.

It’s NOT the “weapon” that the “problem”. It’s the CRAP lubricant the military provides. The stuff makes this weapon a “SAND MAGNET”. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1029750/posts
When my young Marine friend was in Ramadi I sent him DRI-SLIDE. Bottles with needle applicators for their rifles and aerosol cans for lubing the “Ma Deuce” he was tasked with. He told me that once him and the guys in his platoon began using it, NO MORE “sand jams”. But the military hierarchy WON’T GIVE Dri-Slide makers the time of day. http://www.drislide.com/

OK, here’s what to do. When the Capitol One application arrives in the mail take the form and write in BIG letters “GO TO HELL” across it. Then stuff the return envelope that is postage paid with ALL your “junk mail”. When it arrives at their facility there will be “postage due” because the letter will be “overweight”. Maybe they’ll “get the message”?
