    Other problem is it is going to look ugly! I am sure only bare copper would work, and that tuns green and black after being exposed to air for awhile. Imagine hospitals with lots of unhealthy looking stuff to make them more healthy. Liberals will never go for that! They tend to be stuck up and needing things to look antiseptic white. Image is everything to them.

    Well, we have those “Strategic Oil Reserves” that obama was flushing dry like a toilet early on in his “temper tantrum” presidency. Maybe it’s time to fill or top them off while oil is cheap.

    Well, one thing about fracking: If you don’t take the oil out of the ground, it’s still there tomorrow. Yes, frackers will cap their wells if the price is low, but not too much logistics needed to uncap and start extracting when the price goes high. Hey, if House of Saud wants to give away their resources, fine. It’s like cheap products from China. In fact better. When china pulls the plug, we will have to build factories. When the Saud’s pull the plug on oil, we just uncap.

    Reeks of a surveillance device in the Ghz range. Judging by the additional tubing, something in there needs to be kept very cold.

    Loved it! I remember seeing that on in the theaters! Looking back, it was cornier than corn, but at the time it was the perfect parody! The Herb Albert soundtrack took it right over the top!

    Classic example of taking a formula that has worked for 50 years and wrecking it! The allure to a Bond movie is not the complexity of it’s plot. The allure is to see lots of action and near impossible stunts against a super foe that results in a huge climatic battle! Trying to make the series “deeper” or more “intellectual” wrecks it! Just stick to blowing a lot of things up and it will be the cash cow it has always been! (And a favorite of mine!)

    Less rigged in the long term, more rigged in the short term. A good solid company will eventually produce a good return. Think of the market as a pen full of sheep. Make a loud noise and all the sheep run in one direction. Eventually, they will distribute themselves evenly. Manipulators are the ones making loud noises and causing the sheep to run, while betting counter to the motion. Once all the sheep are on one side, place your money on the other, and they will come to it as they equalize their density, which is the only thing they can and will do.

    Key point in Sapper’s post- “mostly everything paid off including the house” This is so obvious yet no one does it! Live slightly below your means and use the “forward momentum” of this lack of debt to live your life! So many people are on a treadmill going nowhere trying to simply stay ahead of their debt load. Get the crap you have paid off by not buying new crap until you have the money to do it. Make car payments to yourself and build up the reserve needed to buy the car, not the other way around! Once you are in “forward momentum”, then you can risk doing some investment. Returns are always in doubt, but interest on a debt is a sure thing.

    Ok, if my coffee maker decided it wasn’t going to brew the coffee I put in it due to “Digital Restrictions Management”, the maker would find himself/herself having it surgically extracted from their collective sphincter!

    “destroy historical artifacts and sites for the sake of their ideology…”

    Taliban was big on that too… Maybe G.P. are closer to terrorists after all.

    In some ways, the biggest problem with this system is also it’s best asset. What is not shown is the massive power supply which is below deck. You need a ship’s generator to run the thing. Because of this, it’s not the type of thing you’ll see mounted to a pickup truck or on the back of a flat bed. It has to be on a large ship. Since the US has a lot of large ships, and most of the peon terrorists don’t (or is that all), it would be hard for them to use. Now, at $1 a shot, lets get that thing popping!

    Maybe if we were allowed to raise our own chickens we could assure our cookie dough and eggnog was safe, but NO! Most people aren’t even allowed to own chickens! Too many regulations! I kept bees for about 20 years for a hobby and for some great honey. Finally gave up due to the amount of regulations and inspections I had to have on my two beehives that only produced honey for me and my wife. That’s the way they want it. EVERYTHING has to come through them so they can have absolute control over our lives, and starve us to death on a whim.

    I think this move is aimed more at Iran, and somewhat at Russia. Yes, it will slow down our production which could benefit them, but I think they are shaking in their boots about the prospect of a nuclear Iran. Anything they can do to collapse the Iranian economy they will try at this point. After all, Obama is doing nothing to slow Iran’s “Progress.”

    I think the proper charge should be “You’re a jerk.”
    Other than that, it’s his pool, whatever….
    We are all well aware that being a jerk is totally legal almost everywhere, including the halls of the white house and most all of DC.

    Inch by inch they “progress” toward removing Christmas. A little here, a little there… A removed and renamed parade or event… Just enough of a move for them to have some lame excuse if people get upset… and if they don’t, then progress the next inch…

    I would disagree that “no one is talking about” this, as the first day the protests started, there were many user posts on the boards here that these were “recycled” OWS protesters who just had something new to fire up their “useful idiots. “

  • December 3, 2014 at 2:01pm

    EXCEPT:
    1) Based on a lie
    2) Used Recycled OWS protesters
    3) Had nothing to do with freedom
    4) No tea involved
