Got kids? Ever get a break on your income tax for those kids?
Congratulations, you're a socialist!
Big Oil is shipping your money to the Middle East every time you fill your tractor, cars and trucks and when you heat your home causing instability in the world and which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of American troops in that part of the world to support the likes of Haliburton, a corporation headquartered and lead from Dubai. The chemicals spewed into the air, ground and water is poisoning the earth. When you go to that station at 2AM, think about how much more convenient it would have been if you had only to unplug your retractable cord from your vehicle in your garage and been on your way.Quote:

Too bad the Supreme Court decided we didn't need to know about what Vice President Cheney conspired with Big Oil in their White House gathering once the two Texas oil men became the leaders of our government. That's criminal as far as I'm concerned.
I have to disagree with Rob on this one. Socialism is when the fruits of production are distributed equally to all citizens. Getting a break on your taxes means we all participate in providing that tax break. The only place in this country where socialism is being practiced is in Alaska where oil companies provide for the Permanent Fund that distributes payments equally to all its citizens. The disbursements from this fund were dramatically increased by the most socialist governor in recent American history, half-Governor Sarah Palin, passed by one of the most socialist legislatures, firmly in the control of conservative Republicans.Quote:

Soooo... back the renewables and the environment.
Tell us HS how do you know so much about PV and wind when you don't have your house powered by either or ever installed a system?
Don't confuse me with facts my mind is made up.
This is really getting funny, we have HS and Crash basically denying technological advancements.
Had either of you been around at the turn of the last century you would have been arguing against for the telegraph over the telephone.
Better yet Crash gets angry. What?? Do you think by getting angry and name calling that it is going to make anyone think you're right? Maybe that works in your house but in my house when someone starts a ranting tirade we all laugh.
You guys are trying to tell us that a model 'T' is a better car than a modern Ford. It's called technology, it's why you're typing on a computer and not a typewriter.
Someone shake these guys and see if they're breathing!
That leads me to question how well you know science. You have ignored far more questions than you have answered. Unless you are holding out information that the rest of us have not discovered yet, I am unimpressed.
BTW since the status quo was climate was working as it always has it is up to you to prove your side. I do know enough about science to know that.
Sound like 2 commies and USA haters - Their Hero is absolutely the worst Pres. in history. Hands down the looser of the century.
