    Scary when a comedian gets it right and the “professionals” get it completely wrong.

    Tuttle, do you realize that you come across as a racist when you make comments like that?

    First, your history is off. Second, non-whites make up a large chunk of HOAs around the country.

    Not all minorities are into crime. There are many well-to-do black families that go way back. That was racist of you to presume, Tuttle.

    On the flip side, not are all rich minorities moral people. Consider that 1/4 of all slaves in the South were owned by black families, particularly in places like Louisiana.

    There are two reasons for HOAs: 1. People who want want a low crime area. They are not whites-only areas. In many areas they are predominantly mexican or black. Again, you come across as a racist, Tuttle, not having bothered to find out the true situation.

    2. Rich people who want to do things only the rich can afford. In a word: so what? If some fool wants to spend a lot of money on worthless things, at least someone else benefits from the contracting work and the jobs of upkeep.

    Tuttle, I do have to thank a racist and sexist and antisemite like yourself. You cause people like me to have a chance to tell the true story about things. So, God bless you.

    Found it. The definition of “common property” for Oregon goes far, far outside of the standard definition. They include private property in it. Which is insane, because the legal definition of common property normally is that owned by a community, not a property owner. One wonders who wrote this garbage and got it into Oregon law.

  • July 25, 2014 at 7:05pm

    I was curious, so I looked up the statutes for my state. The phrase “common property” was throughout them, but no actual authority to regulate private property. The question is then how some of the HOAs pull some of the stunts they do with arbitrary and capricious ideas.

    A soldier is not to obey illegal orders nor immoral orders.

    In this case, unless there is a specific state law that gives the HOA the ability to do what they have done, they are in the wrong. Can’t have illegal provisions in a contract.

  • [5] July 25, 2014 at 6:54pm

    The solution is to sue the homeowners association whenever they go outside State law. Covenants and similar claptrap do not have the force of law.

    First, write a letter asking them which state laws allow them to regulate property in the fashion they are pushing. If none does, then you continue doing whatever it was. One of the basics of contract law is that you can’t have illegal provisions. These tin god HOAs keep trying to ban flags despite a Federal specifically forbidding these outfits from preventing it.

    He should have called security. Two unbadged men in the House?

    Something more to this than a mere faux pas, yes?

    Funny. Congressmen are supposed to have placards/badges. Where were these two “congressmen”, if congressmen they were. Given some of the stunts of the past, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone was playing a practical joke.

    Sorry. fifty cents each, not 49

    Main reasons are that LED bulbs are much dimmer than comparable incandescent or CFLs and much more expensive.

    It’s actually cheaper to buy the LEDs and make your own. For example, these LEDs are 84 lumens each, but cost .49 cents. To make a 100W bulb equivalent of 1700 lumens, ~20 are required. So, $50 for 100, so $10 for 100W equivalent of LEDs. As opposed to buying four or five LED bulbs at anywhere from ~$10 on up for each bulb to get the same amount of light.

    Unfortunately, people have a tendency to have dogs in situations that are just not healthy. How many people in cities have an outdoor dog that needs a lot of exercise and the dog is driven nuts in a small apartment? It doesn’t seem to occur to people to not have working dogs and dogs with great energy in tiny areas.

  • [5] July 25, 2014 at 1:55pm

    I’ve never had a CFL last anywhere near as long as the 10,000 hours some claim. On the same circuit as my computer (pure sine wave, voltage regulation and battery backup to deal with the omnipresent burps in the power, morning overvolts to 127v, etc.) they usually last 8 months.

    That’s pretty good compared to when I lived south of Ashland with their incompetent power utility. Because the clods in that town had no idea how to run a utility, a light corm might last a month. I got sick of replacing the things.

    The tubes last a long time, but the corms just don’t last.

    Ezekiel 35 indicates that the Lord will do it. Given how many of them have nukes now, one wonders if they really will do each other in.

    funny, but I hope he figured it out.

    Gas stations here have an emergency stop button, too. If something goes wrong, the attendant can press the switch and cut power to all the pumps. They are sometimes standing alone, or on the side of the building, or some other conspicuous place where people will notice them.

    Their legal system certainly isn’t. No Grand Juries, despite the Constitution requiring them.

    One of my former pastors from Montana was hounded because the local sheriff hated Christians. He ended up doing a legal battle for many years because of it. A new judge was appointed and he closed the entire thing. He was severely angry at the dishonesty of the prosecutor and sheriff.

    Crucial pieces of evidence were not shown the defense, evidence was “lost”, etc.

    Rather reminds me of the moral turpitude of the Italian justice system.

    in the positive:
    “With more heat, the oceans would warm somewhat. With that comes more evaporation and more rainfall— planet-wide— not just a few areas like the Global Warming crowd claims. Prolonged worldwide drought is actually a sign of cooling. Increasing humidity tends to limit a given land’s temperature extremes, both hot and cold, as well. With warming and more moisture, desert becomes steppe, steppe becomes forest, boreal forest moves into areas that are now taiga and taiga into tundra. Hardwood forest moves northward into areas that are now boreal forests. Imagine the Sahara becoming grassy steppe, as it has been when the world has been warmer. Or imagine Alaska becoming more temperate. With faster conifer growth, like it had around 1000 A.D. or so.” Page 60

    Here’s an interesting one.

    “The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth, yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the
    atmosphere — thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States.”

    I don’t know if I was the first one to put it to writing, but it wouldn’t surprise me a bit because in researching the book, I could find no references to it. Everyone at the time was assuming that the droughts were Global Warming.

    In the negative: “In terms of climate, shorter-term droughts of a decade or two do not indicate warming or cooling, as they appear to be cyclical. However, a worldwide, prolonged drought that lasts several decades would indicate a reduction in global temperatures. With global cooling, the oceans’ temperatures are reduced and with them, the evaporation rates and resulting rainfall. In a nutshell, cooler ocean water would mean less rainfall globally.” Page 22 Global Warming, Challenged

    and in the positive (next comment block):

    Paul is RINO who is consistently inconsistent on his viewpoints. After hearing him speak on abortion and illegal immigrants, I wouldn’t trust him. The filibuster was a good thing. But what about afterwards? Right is still right and wrong is still wrong.

  • [4] July 23, 2014 at 9:43pm

    No one at Columbia knew him. He doesn’t actually appear to have ever been a student there. One wonders if he has a degree at all or if his entire educational history is as phony as the birth certificate the Dems made last year.
