Re: Really?

You could run your home off the grid if you really wanted to be free. Generators the right size to run a residential home aren't even that ridiculously expensive either. I'm afraid I don't quite follow where the electric grid crosses the line of plain old common sense, and oh my goodness no, SOCIAL...

Re: more

Can you explain how spending tax dollars on basic level medical coverage differs so radically from spending them on say infrastructure like roads, sewage and water treatment and research at post secondary institutions? Simple. I cannot go out and pay to build a road through my neighbor's property. ...

For flooding, you only SCRAM when you abandon the space, unless the plant dumps itself. It has always been that way. You may be taking "inquest quotes" out of context. Look, I don't want to keep arguing when we're basically agreeing on 95% of the items. No, the air tank is not called the ...

You do not SCRAM for flooding. I do not recall flooding for the incident, but will look it up. I am not sure what was put out in public, vice not. This was part of the investigation's determination, made after the fact. Of course, we don't know exactly what happened aboard the Thresher, as everyone...

The Thresher sank while being tested after a refit. The refit was flawed, the sub leaked, and sank. The sub's issue was freezing up of the emergency blow supply valves cutting off air to the tanks while attempting to surface. Bad design. As I recall reading in the public domain, they tried to blow ...

When someone says that the Navy has a perfect record in nuke safety and I point out it has lost not one but two nukes on the ocean floor, there is nothing "knee-jerk" about it. The Navy does not have a "perfect record". It has not one but two reactors sitting on the ocean floor....

USS Scorpion was lost in 1968 and USS Thresher in 1963. There's all that atomic junk sitting on the bottom of the sea poisoning whatever is around it. Lets not pretend nukes are safe. They're not. From Wikipedia: "The Navy has also released information about the nuclear testing performed in an...

How does this screw the little guy? Seriously? Well, personally, as a contractor, I now would need to get the tax ID number from my local WalMart store, the local Pizza delivery place, and a bunch of others, and send them a 1099 form every year. Which also means that I can't just "petty cash&q...

False pretense...

This is only the discretionary budget. The non-discretionary budget (like welfare and pork projects, etc.) that don't need to be re-budgeted every year, don't show up on this, and exceed the discretionary budget by almost 2:1. That's right, $2T that no one even gets to vote on any more. The military...

New Computers and Best Buy

Personally, I'd avoid most of the Big Box stores (like Best Buy) like the plague. I see that you want local service, and that can be a problem, as I personally would rather get the $299 special from Tiger Direct (http://www.tigerdirect.com) and deal with it myself. However... What I would do is look...

jnaujok, indeed! It's going to get dark around here come Feb. I wonder how the stars are going to look. They're effectively halving the light pollution. Hopefully they'll shut off the flickery streetlight across from my house. I'd love to see stars below 2nd magnitude again. (I grew up in the hinte...

It seemed to me the cat food didn't go on the welfare card "She also had cat food and some other stuff which she paid for in cash." That seemed rather dignified and comparatively proper usage of the card compared to the other two examples (though I'm not familiar with the details of the A...
