What about percentage of households with solar energy?
Sean April 20, 2014 at 10:50 pm
You cannot have a lot of people with solar because it is so expensive that it requires massiveRead More subsidies to be price competitive. This whole article is designed to guilt people into have lesser of a lifestyle. Go Green, just like the Communists went red.

I suspect the data is old. A few years ago Shelton went to single stream recycling. Much more canRead More be recycled, and most people I know are recycling about as much as they throw out.

Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

@! David so explain to me the difference in mileage of European cars. Is that something that you canRead More relate to or are you hoodwinked by the O Man and his lies. Or Gores LIES about global warming. Hay clearly you do not know the rules of POKER!!!
David Parsons April 20, 2014 at 08:03 pm
You seem to be obsessed with car mileage. ...1: Gas is very expensive in Europe so they tend toRead More drive lighter cars with smaller engines. ...2: The USA has sticter emission standards that knock off about 10%. ...3: USA test cycles are more realistic and give lower mileage. ...4. The European inperial gallon is larger than the US gallon. This may cause confusion.

The difference between the Democrats/the big government Republicans and the conservatives is simple:Read More conservatives want people to make choices with their money based upon what the individual wants. The rest of them take our money, shake down companies for donations and then take our money and dole it out. Al Gore made millions off the sham of global warming. Alternative energy companies require subsidies and donate to the big government types to get it.

This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.

Igor April 20, 2014 at 09:32 pm
DP that always makes me laugh also. Like because they can act, we should put more stock in what theyRead More say. Actually it's the opposite. The way they conduct themselves leaves me to believe they are not in contact with the real world.

No William,what she needs is about 50000 volts of electricity.Fry the fat yom up nice and crispy.
David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 01:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

The more I think about it, the more disturb I get. Think about it. You go the supermarket. They wantRead More you to scan your own groceries. Bag your own groceries. They want you to put the money in the machine. Have they lowered the prices? No. Now when you go to fast food places they want you to do their job for them. Pour your own drinks. Do you get a discount? No. Seems to me the more places you go the more they want, you the paying customer to do their job for them. Put the soda machine behind the counter and do the work that you want the minimum wage increase for.
