The Delorean Paradox (Americans couldn't fully open the doors to a Delorean-automobile while parked inside a typical American garage)...  Solar-panels for the American home will be blocked by trees on neighbors' private-property, in many cases.

That's a recipe for domestic litigation on a massive-scale.

TV / Re: favourite T.V series list of all time

I never realized that.
But today, the left would claim the show promotes child abuse, pitting two kids against one another to settle their differences.
Imagine that, letting boys be boys and learn a valuable lesson on life through violence.
Today, they join gangs and fight like cowards because the left has painted such a scenario as failed parenting.

When a lib asks how things have changed, this is a perfect example of how culture dealt to resolve issues under Canterbury rules, and it worked quite well.
Check it out, this'll trigger some memories.


Wow.  Awesome find.  That's pretty-much how I remembered it.  Life-lessons and adventures... with minimal hoopla.  Even the occasional sing-along was void of sap.  You're right... this show could never be aired these days. 

What sucked was that Khrushchev and his wife adored Spin & Marty and other Disney Americana.  Rugged boyhood, learning to work a 'communal' farm-ranch life, blah blah blah...  Plus, Disney's wife wanted to meet Khrushchev during his 1959 SoCal visit. 

The Khrushchev's were never 'banned' from Disneyland.  That was a media-creation.  It was actually a police-security problem.  Here's the backstory:

Looks like the copyright for Spin & Marty only allows youtube to host clips.

That was a very interesting read. Thank you for posting it.

I understand now something I did not, before. Mind you, I am not
ruling out that the whole labeling thing being done by the left is
pure propaganda, spin, K Street Advertising. That, I think, is the
majority opinion among conservatives. That is to say, a clever political
play by ruthless left wing politicians bent on more power and money.

It never occurred to me that someone as high as Bill Clinton or Hillary
Clinton could actually believe it.  Now, I see that as  distinctly likely.
Truth is, that blows my mind. I spend a lot of time (I am semi retired)
following the conservative movement, contributing and researching.
I think I have a pretty good handle, at least above average, on contemporary
American and European political conservatism.
Now, I am reading the Clinton position, and it suddenly dawns on me that
as far as the Tea Party, grass roots conservatism, everything associated,
such as Tax Watch, NRA, Heritage, all that, Hillary Clinton doesn't have a
freakin clue.
 I can't tell you why this never sunk in. It is probably because
we all live in bubbles.  If you were to ask me what was up with left wing
thought, I'd admit, I have no idea. But I am a retired salesman. I honestly
just naturally assumed that someone in the position of Secretary of State,
possible Presidential candidate, would have some kind of grip on the
reality of American politics.
When I here statements linking, say, vets with terrorists, I naturally assumed
it was left wing propaganda. Now, I get it. They really believe it.
I have a new outlook.  We in the conservative camp had better get busy
dumbing down the rhetoric. I now know why our positions are falling on deaf
ears.
It was a bit of an eye opener, wasn't it.
I knew the Dim party was corrupt, but the lows they are willing to sink, makes them literally traitorous enemies of the state, if they pulled the crap they do in the private sector, they'd all be dead or in prison.

The Dim party has no interest in the law, other than at the moment, it gets in the way, but where communism is concerned, they'll do what it takes to achieve their goal.

Gentlemen the mask has fallen so the ridicule must commence. It's the natural thing to do. I believe it was Shakespeare's uncle that said "As the facade falls so must it's owner"

Forward!

Or as they say in England "Forward! if you're not to busy. It's nothing really. Look if you're not up to it we can always postpone it until you're ready..."
"Forward" I thought that was the Obama re election line!! :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Speaking of coincidences doesn't the timing of this and the attack on the Bundy ranch raise an eyebrow? :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:


Only if you're a conservative.

Wow!! there a little slow, but then it is the government.   :lol:
IF there no chance then why change your password.   :rolleyes:
So now if hacker's get all your data, it was Heartbleed.  This is called one more CYA.



snip~
Users of the federal heath care exchange site have been advised to change their passwords this weekend after the Obama administration reviewed the government's vulnerability to the Heartbleed Internet security bug.

Senior administration officials told the Associated Press that there was no indication that the HealthCare.gov site had been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government's Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular WhiteHouse.gov petitions page.

Bronx, please put a copy of this in the Library also.

Done.

Why the timing still isn't right;

Theoretically, Americans were assured that a solar-panel would cost around- say $37.50...
It quickly became apparent that a solar-panel would cost close to $119.75...

You don't rush to put a square-peg in a round-hole, in a free-market environment. 

Those are the first-2 reasons why Solyndra failed.  The entire list is here:

Even had it survived through welfare, eventually it would have collapsed under the weight of litigation.
The product was a complete failure and scam, it only worked in a controlled environment, but in real world application, it was pure crap.
I feel sorry for the fools that bought it, but then, most likely it was only libs willing to support big govts lunacy.

Great link by the way.
