and, how long does it take to recharge? Lets not pretend that he hasn’t tested this thing by shutting off the power to his house. I’m going to guess the stats on that test are a tad embarrassing and, hence, not in the press release.

Not only could it power your entire house, it could also burn it to the ground and the toxins from the lithium would make the property uninhabitable for 100 years.
you must be heavily invested in oil, coal, gas, or other fossil fuel burning industry...

You can also blame lawyers and law-suit happy people. The attendants can’t/won’t do much more than their job entails simply because people will sue over any trivial slight these days. Imagine if she helped load the medicine or the equipment and it ended up broke. Airlines would be liable and the attendant could lose her job. It’s the society built by liberals

Yeah, but unless the rental company decides to settle the family won’t get much. They’re protected by the car rental liability laws in Florida. Basically, if the wheels fall off your rental car causing you to veer into a mall and take out a few people……..they’re not liable.

The friend was equally drunk, tough deal, but bottom line, don’t drink and drive, and don’t drink and ride with a drunk. The problem is, drunks lose all common sense and inhibitions. So they don’t think in terms of “gee you’re drunk so I shouldn’t be riding with you”. So, it’s kind of a self fulfilling prophecy.

They would have to show intent. In drunk driving accidents the best you can get is “depraved indifference” which basically translates to manslaughter. Any degree of murder would require intent, something like she told people she was going to go get drunk and then drive through as many red lights as she could get away with before she hit someone.

Floriduh has long ago become the state of “stupid is as stupid does” residents. It’s where intelligence goes to retire.

I guess she discovered that the “smart” in smart-car does not pertain to the occupants. Both drunk, at least one not wearing a seatbelt, one texting and both in a tuna can of a car. Guaranteed she makes the claim that SHE was not the one sending the texts, she’ll say the passenger was doing it for her. Just wait.

If the global warming bunch want to make global warming a fact, they better pony up a few million for the Clinton Foundation. Hillary will get right to work making global warming a fact for you.

The big lie is that most scientists DON’T believe in global warming. But they owe their jobs and incomes to people that do. In actuality, not many governments or the U.N. actually believe in global warming either, they know it’s a farce. But they see a means to an end, and that “end” is more power and control.

CO2 is also why plants have green leaves. It’s called photosynthesis and it requires CO2. Without CO2 plants would start to die. They stopped teaching science in schools so most kids today don’t understand it. Don’t believe me? Take a house plant and put it in a low CO2, high O2 environment. It’ll be dead with a week. It’s why some people believe plants grow better when you “talk” to them a lot. It’s the CO2 in your breath.

So, global temperatures will be “average”. Isn’t that what the weather is 90% of the time anyway? Average? We normally have average snowfall, average rainfall, average tornadoes, average hurricanes. In laymans terms (for the nutbags) it’s why we can predict the weather from day to day. It’s why the Farmers Almanac can be fairly accurate a year out. It’s called “weather”.

Well, there’s one thing we know for sure. King Barry will never have a story like this in any of his memoirs.

If Obama had a son………..or a daughter……………(what the heck IS this person?)
 April 10, 2015 at 2:31pm
You think this is bad. Just wait till the new FCC “internet neutrality” takes effect. Prez Barry will be in charge of what you get to watch and for what price. Then where will you go to complain? Federal government?
 April 10, 2015 at 2:29pm
BBB was a huge thing many years ago. EVERYONE wanted that BBB rating and if you had a problem you just logged a complaint with them and they investigated the company on your behalf. Companies feared them. Today it’s just a logo you can buy for your website.

They are definitely a pain to deal with sometimes. It takes patience and time. If I don’t get satisfaction the first 60 seconds into the call, I ask for a supervisor, then I take it to the retention department. (Yes, they have a retention department)

Exactly. I’ve had Direct, Dish, Verizon Fios and Comcast. Comcast beats them all at reliability and consistent bandwidth speeds. Customer service is a little lacking, but so do the other 4. I know of no company that provides good customer service anymore. Biggest drawback of satellite is the dish itself. Clouds, rain, snow, ice, trees, etc. Plus they have to mount it on your house facing south (if you don’t have a good clear south view forget it) and then it looks like the Beverly Hillbillies just moved in. I want the best bang for my buck and regardless of where I lived Comcast always beat the others.

You can have the best signal in the world and it doesn’t mean a thing if if you have a cheap TV. Invest in a quality TV and the signal strength doesn’t matter all that much. Same thing applies to BluRay and DVD. You have to put them side-by-side and squint to figure out which is better.
