    ONLY Social Security “trustees” get away with calling a public debt the public owes itself - and must tax itself a second time to pay itself back - an “asset”.

    It is ONLY with these fictitious “assets” that the “trustees” get away with claiming that Social Security income and “assets” are sufficient for now and ONLY in need of “fixes” to shore it up in the long run.

    Any excess FICA payments to Social Security, not needed for current benefit payments, were NEVER “invested”, they were turned over to the treasury and spent along with general revenues and in return, the Social Security “trust fund” was given IOUs, which Americans must now, for the second time, re-tax themselves again to come up with the cash for those IOUs when Social Security needs to redeem them to pay baby boomers’ benefits.

    It is accounting fraud at the highest.

    I guess no one told Buchanan that the Soviet Union is supposed to have ended in 1991, not continued under pretense as a revived imperial Russian empire or a wannabee revived imperial Russian empire.

    Therefore his point and his analogy comparing the two eras and the two Ukraine states, old and new, and the two states of old Soviet Union and modern Russia as representing equal conditions, respectively, does nothing less than throw the end of the Soviet Empire into the ash heap of history as a non-event.

    Obviously that is Putin’s desire. What is not obvious is why Buchanan thinks the west ought to accede to it, in this era.

  • Lambs to the GMO Slaughter

    07/29/2014 12:33:23 PM PDT · 15 of 37
    Wuli to Kaslin

    GMO seed making IS about Monsanto and others seeking to (a) monopolize the seed base for basic crops, to (b) seed bases that require the use of their herbicides and pesticides, (c) which they make more money off on than the seeds themselves.

    In the end, the world’s main food crops are shrinking massively in terms of the variety of seeds they are based on.

    No matter what arrogant man tries to do, narrowing the seed base of major crops in the extreme always, sooner or later, spells disaster, as some unforeseen consequence or some “natural” calamity, brings an unforeseen circumstance that an extremely narrow seed base lacks few candidates up to the challenge for.

    That, not mere potatoes themselves, was the cause of the Irish famine. THEIR potato crop had, by machinations of the British colonials become the overwhelming dominant crop of Ireland AND it had been focused on mostly one strain of potato. When a crop disease hit the potato crops of Europe most of Europe did not experience famine or lose nearly all their potatoes. What potatoes they were growing comprised a variety of strains, with enough strains that had what they needed to survive; unlike Ireland.

    The seeds for corn and soybeans, do to GMO progress around the world, have been reduced to 60-80% of the crop using just a few strains, and that is progressing into even less variety remaining.

    The opposite can be said for the growing seed monopolies of Monstanto.

    Conservatives need to admit that the adage “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” is a fact of human nature and its applicability goes to every sphere, not just government.

    “Our crooked city is run by the property developers in the Downtown business partnership (and has been since at least the 1950s).

    Maybe “Alternative X” should be, using the power of eminent domain for a very brief spell of one Saturday and one Sunday, ALL land owners in the downtown district would have all the land collected into a joint holding company with each owner allotted shares in proportion to their land’s market value at midnight on the Friday before, but held in escrow by the city, and then that holding company given full title to the stretches of highway around downtown Houston, incurring a debt to the city of Houston, held by 30-year bonds, and then that holding company “privatized” back to the original owners, in their new collective ownership and each property with a perpetual & transferable lease to each original owner. Then, they can do what they want, and raise their own money - go themselves into more debt - to pay for remodeling Houston’s highways for their benefit.

  • General Electric's Game-Changing Fuel Cell May Spark A Revolution

    07/29/2014 11:34:23 AM PDT · 21 of 42
    Wuli to shove_it

    I just wish another energy raw material - natural gas - was not a required raw material for the fuel cell.

    Yes, the price of natural gas is making it more attractive in grid generated electricity, but it is less efficient (creates less heat for a comparable input compared to coal, fuel oil or nuclear) and grid generated electricity has a lot of inefficiency (energy loss) naturally, in the grid itself.

    It is also true that when it comes to heating, natural gas heaters now deliver close to 90% of the energy potential input. That makes heating a more efficient direct use of the natural gas than the 65% efficiency of using it for a fuel cell.

    On the other hand, that 65% efficiency of the fuel cell IS greater than the efficiency of power-grid generated use of natural gas for electricity, when all factors including losses via the distribution system are considered.

    In the question of whether or not the fuel cell is enough of a paradigm changer to bring natural gas into the home as a generator of electricity for the home, via fuel cells, that will require lots of other technical and economic questions and answers.

    Congress can’t fix the Pentagon’s procurement problems because half the time Congress is responsible for crony-capitalist (contractors in the home district) add-ons in military contracts, add-ons the Pentagon agrees to NOT because without them the goal of an item’s use was jeopardized but just because getting approved by congress would be jeopardized without it.

    When people complained about us buying Russian Helicopters for Afghanistan as part of our military aid agreement with Afghanistan they were either ignorant of or willingly blind to the total agreement’s cost, which included the helos, training, parts and supplies in a mutli-year pact, all of which were less expensive on the less complex, easier to operate, less sophisticated but well built Russian helos.

    “The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military’s General Political Bureau, during a speech to a large military rally in Pyongyang Sunday on the anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.”

    The statement illustrates WHY original language definitions and their correct communication are so important and how their misuse misinforms the masses all the time.

    An armistice is not an end to a war, it is only a truce, a temporary condition, waiting for a formal peace treaty. With only an armistice in hand, a state of war still exists and the peace of the moment is only a truce, not an end to the war.

    I do not agree at all with APS political tactics.

    However, I do understand some things about electric power generation operations in general and their economics; at least I think I do.

    If someone reduces how much electricity they are using, does the utility “slow”, “lower” how much electricity a power plant is generating? No. Its not that simple.

    The power generators are not going to run less or more by what you take. They operate and produce at maximum efficiency and from it customers take what they need from the load delivered. What the customers do not take is still there in the load delivered, just not used. The usage itself did not change the cost of operations of the generators or the grid equipment. If lower usage becomes a trend by which demand for building new generators is less, that lowers costs for new equipment ONLY, it does not change the costs of running existing equipment and the need for the utility to get consumers to take all they can from what the generators are putting out. When they can’t, rates go up in spite of less consumption, because less consumption does not in general lower power generation operating costs.

    So, IN GENERAL lowering your usage does not, in general, lower the operating costs of a local power grid utility, but it is assumed it ought to lower your bill. It might, and then again I am way more efficient in electric consumption than five years ago, but my bill is higher, not lower. It is not rare to see the local utility asking the public utility commission for a rate increase - arguing that their operating costs are not lower even though consumption is down, and consequently their revenue per unit of energy generated, their ROI, & their profit is down.

    Some public utility authorities are rewarding electric companies for the good behavior of helping customers reduce consumption, become more efficient, or augment their electric needs with “alternate” sources. What are the rewards to the electric company? More positive answers to a rate increase.

    It is going to be a difficult transition from a grid energy paradigm to an independent energy paradigm. Greater efficiency comes at a cost and we all are going to pay for it, in one form or another. It is a transition I believe technology is pointing to. However, working out the economics of it are not as simple or clear as the technology.

    while some of the decline in the numbers playing golf may be mortality among age groups that used to be more active in Golf, my counter evidence, anecdotal as it is, is an upswing in the numbers of my own recently retired age group who have just recently taken up golf in the last few years - half of those I know in my age group who never played golf much if at all in the past, retirement have taken up golf, or greatly expanded how much they play since they retired in recent years - and who buys more golf items year over year; those who have been playing for many years, or those whose active play starts in more recent years

    maybe Dicks is in a slump of their own, with the expansion of outfits like Sports Authority and, from what I have seen in some locales, an expansion of independent pro golf shops.

    The fact that the El Salvadoran president, Obama and others conveniently do not remind the public of, because doing so would be inconvenient to their excuses, is the level of LEGAL immigration from El Salvador and EVERY South and Central American country.

    For instance, tiny El Savador with a 2000 population of less than 2 million, had LEGAL immigration from 1996 to 2012 of over 600,000.

    One supremely FALSE narrative from all of Latin America and from all “immigration rights” advocacy outfits is that LEGAL immigration from Latin America has been proportionately insufficient. From the perspective of the facts, the Latin American countries populations and the level of LEGAL immigration from them, there can be no truth to that myth and its false judgement on U.S. immigration.

    Wuli to SeekAndFind

    the researchers are showing the evidence that, anecdotally, made my arguments on the subject over a decade ago

    - a cop can always stop and ticket ANYONE for driving in a negligent or reckless manner and that negligent/reckless manner, no matter the cause, is the only legal cause the cop needs, and so the only necessary law is/was already on the books

    so how often is someone stopped for driving while eating or drinking, loading/unloading their CD, adjusting their radio or GPS, putting on their makeup, putting on or taking off a shirt, or sweater, or jacket or a zillion other things that can lead to major driving errors - not very often

    but just let someone be seen using their cellphone, no matter how responsibly, and THAT’s a legal issue

    Wuli to NKP_Vet

    There is a number of straw man arguments the author makes.

    “Over the last several years I have encountered a fair number of Christians who claim they are “spiritual but not religious.” In other words, they do not identify with a particular Christian denomination, using the Bible alone to guide their faith. It’s an ideology that says religious institutions are outdated and unnecessary.”


    “The issue is whether or not one can do this privately, reading only Scripture and coming to their own conclusions on theological matters, or whether one must submit to some authority outside of themselves.”

    The pretense here is people are using ONLY “their own” authority and are not listening to any authority outside their own. In fact, in the area of human guidance non-demominational Christians can be following a number of human “authorities” of one denomination or more as well as theologians and pastors not particularly associated with a single denomination in their writing, AND with the one authority in scripture G-d. All the writer is really complaining about is the non-denominational are not listening to some “authority” he approves of.

    “In Matthew 16:18, Jesus says to the apostle Peter, “you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church.” Catholics believe that in this verse Jesus is bestowing on Peter a position of authority from which the office of the pope is derived. But even if the “spiritual” Christian has problems with this belief, there is no escaping the fact that Christ intended his Church to be both visible and authoritative.”

    And for Christians who do not accept the Roman misinterpretation - formulated to serve the human institution given the emperor’s blessing, and for all non-demominational Christians “authoritative” does not have to conform to a certain denomination and “visible” is the spiritual Church made visible and known by the Christian life of Christian believers, in and out of any denomination.

    Someone needs to remind the professor, the “pause” is neither predicted by or meets the models used by the “man made” global warming crowd, AND remind the professor that mere corellation (it is a cycle seen before) also does not explain cause.

    The REAL fact is that the earth climate has been generally warming, with fits and starts, since the end of the last great ice age, and “industrial polution” or not is likely to keep warming no matter what humans do, OR NOT, as natural forces much stronger than human input dictate.

    Boehner is an idiot.

    It is Obama and Harry Reid that need and rely on the House of Representatives, for money, not the other way around.

    That makes the power of the purse more direct, immediate and powerful than the political stunt of “suing the President” which if not tossed out by SCOTUS will still be laughed at by Obama.

    Kurdish independence and American military support for it should have been American policy from 1991 on.

    The Brits were wrong to accede to the Sunni demands for “Iraq” under a Brit-appointed Sunni Hashemite “King” as reward for the Arabs help with the Brits against the Ottoman Turks.

    They helped install perpetual Sunni air of superiorty in Iraq, against the sizeable Shia and Kurd minorities and aided the cause of the sectarian strife that continues today.
