Stop shoving your damn beliefs down others throats. What do you care and what does it matter to youRead More in your ignorant life? She isn't hindering my right to an enjoyable life, so "nut job" or not, What do you care? Stop being the winy little bitch in the back of the class who tattles on everyone and keep to yourself!

They should instead give her a license plate that says "Eight-hole". Instead of suingRead More she needs to donate her money to a worthy cause - give me a break -
Jessica Bailey, who promotes solar power at CEFIA, the state's "Green Bank" authority, was honored by President Barack Obama Thursday when he named her a "Champion of Change".

Jim points out the environmental impact of building solar panels. First, once the panels are built,Read More the impact is over. Not so with coal, oil and natural gas energy plants. The extraction and burning of fuel for these plants continues over their lifetime, with coal being the worst. Also, there is an environmental impact to building the fossil fuel plants themselves. Sorry Jim, your comparison simply points out the environmental superiority of solar.

Hay 51 if this is so great why is it not being used and developed since it's conception. Well MaybeRead More Diane Feinstein is still worried about the spiders in the deserts in California. Even a Progressive liberal like her is against it. fancy that. Scam plain and simple. And if fossil fuel makes us sick as you claim why do European cars get 28% better mileage. Is that another scam the dems are responsible for. YOU BET. And how about the Prius one of the worst polluting cars on the road. The solar industry uses tuns of energy to make there panels and massive amounts of space in sunny areas are required. The buy back is app 12 years of energy use before the panels start providing energy. The energy used to make these panels is HUGE. Plain and simple they are a s scam. Some day they will be perfected but they are not right now. So be it as it may Jessica is on the gravy train supported buy us tax payers . Another form of welfare in my eyes. So until the process is perfected it is a scam right now. Not a question in my mind clean energy is very expensive and a scam!! it costs to much money to be GREEN. Green energy is outrageously expensive.

CEFIA was founded in 2011 to combine public and private funds to promote clean energy inRead More Connecticut. The first state “Green Bank” in the nation, CEFIA has served as a model for other states, according to Himes.>>>>>>>>>> According to HIMES. Wow not the sharpest knife in the draw i would say. Jim Hines what a JOKE!!!

I have an idea. Put the trees on hinges. This way when they want to be tree huggers they can popRead More them up and when they demand power they can fold them down. What surprises me the most is they haven't found a way of taxing them yet.

I love the people who have nothing to add to the conversation so they throw either Obama or gunRead More control in. Either subject are worth debating at another time. But this conversation has nothing to do with either.

It is unfortunate (but also 'unfortunately' necessary) that we are all having this discussion. ThisRead More man made a very personal decision, planned his demise and consummated it - all without harming another human being. He even left detailed explanations behind, for those that he left behind. Was he depressed? Maybe. Or, maybe he truly felt he was leaving the game "at the top of his game". There will always be differing viewpoints on suicide and assisted suicide. But, people will still continue to do it - whatever their reasons may be. We are a society of laws, and the debates will continue forever on this topic (just like the debate over abortion). There is no perfect answer. In the end, I just say RIP Mr. Banks, and I choose to believe that he is with his loved ones again, in a better place. And, I respect his right to make that very personal decision.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment.

It sure helps that I'm a little old lady because I just bring my cup from home from the last time IRead More was at a store. The last time I paid for a drink at costco was probably before the terrorists attacked us on 9-11. What's the big deal here, it's only soda? If this guy wants free drinks, it's none of your business, and non of the business of that nosey cop neither. You people don't get it, it's flat out entrapment by having the soda available.
