As an Illini, I have been interested to hear all the complaining about wind turbines. They sure seem to be popular enough in Iowa and Wisconsin. They're not going to be a long term solution. Our main goal really has to be to get mankind off this rock. For that you need solutions like a polywell that...

I gotta tell ya, I could almost feel for some people on this site. They're politically homeless. There are a lot of conservative ideas that sound great to me. Hell, under Clinton a lot of these ideas had their best demonstration. Full employment, budget surpluses. Low taxes? Fine with me. Sound defe...

Observe the engineers of formula one. Possibly no one deals with more rules and strictures than they do. Yet they innovate all the time. This season for instance a number of new rules were passed. The Brawn team, a backmarker last season, spent their time preparing for this season. The rules forced ...

We would have had the internet before electronic computers? With cans and string perhaps? Well, what am I saying. Content would have been provided by telegraph operators on steroids. Except there weren't any steriods. Maybe they could have gotten by on caffeine, or the amphetamines favored by Hitler...

Of course. What is someone expounding the need for the US to go to a Soviet system?

Internet was originally put together by DARPA I believe. Some guy named Gore was involved in pushing for funding. Rural electrification was also pushed through by big gov. Perhaps the earliest electronic computers were used in WWII to destroy th e U-Boat threat. Again big gov. Apollo moon launch. Ex...

Well we'll just have to hope that the polywell people get cracking and we have pretty much infinite power from a fuel cheaply available. Why then we can even run huge refrigerators and cool the planet. And maybe a few debates too.

No reason we can't torture this metaphor further. When you've got a wreck down in the ditch the tow truck's gonna have to anchor itself sideways on the street to pull it out. Yeh so running huge deficits is normally a really bad idea. But in this case consumers aren't spending, businesses are going ...

One could admire your sophisticated arguments, the way you artfully skate around the point. The GOP had their most unfettered access to power since Hoover and promptly returned us to a state of economic depression. They were the party that touted the need to deregulate and free the financial system;...

The lesser of two evils? I would say nothing but pure evil.
As I pointed out, the GOP under Bush had its most unfettered access to the levers of power since Hoover and promptly proceeded to produce another depression.

Or perhaps Obama is right about something. The first thing we should do is quit arguing and try to work together toward solutions of our problems. Capitalism is the way to go, but those who believe that totally free markets are the solution to anything should be forced to drive in certain countries ...

True enough, however the democrats are trying to accomplish something, and their ideas are backed by theory and history, though it must be acknowledged that macro-economics is about as uncertain as a science can be. But the GOP has probably not had such unfettered access to the levers of power as th...
