Re: Are your kids going to be red, or blue?

Are you blaming Obama and his socialist policies for inflation?

Re: Are your kids going to be red, or blue?

So how are we taxpayers any different that corporate business owners. WE elect people to represent us just as unions do. Your recourse toward unions is to change your representatives, whether they be in city state or federal government.

 

Why would you expect union workers to not defend their own interests?  You want to eliminate their right to bargain. Would you accept such limits in your own enterprise/ With your suppliers or your customers. Do you really want them hostage to the public whim?  How about congress people that set their own salaries. Why not fight to roll back their wages and benefit?. Why don't they chop their own first. That would set a great example.

 

Secondly, what is your standard for deciding that public workers are over paid?  You don't see union workers campaigning to end crop subsidies. No it is mostly conservatives fighting that battle. Yet they oppose workers as well.

 

The conservatives don't want to pay taxes. They don't want businesses to pay taxes. They don't want investors to pay taxes. They favor cheap labor so that companies can make profits. Yet they don't want companies to pay taxes.

 

So how do we get revenues into the treasury if we stack the deck against the people that do have to pay taxes. Workers!

If you wanted to build a new machine shed on  the lawn in front of your house breaking the most pleasant view your wife enjoys. Your dear beloved says "no dag, I don't want it there. She is not saying she doesn't want it anywhere. She is merely stating that she doesn't want it in that particular spot. Would you blame her for being opposed?  A Nimby? No!  A nimfy. Not in my front yard.

 

Why would they want to construct a wind farm in one of the most scenic areas in the state? Why?

Could it be that construction in the water does not include purchasing a site and does not include leasing a site or paying royalties?

 

I would welcome them to build a wind farm in my area. but I can understand why some folks wouldn't. It's not that they want to obstruct construction,but want them to be more logical about it's location.

 

Have you considered what an impact windmills may have on scenic beauty or sailing and other water sports? The damage to property values? Do you ever consider things from a perspective other than your own? I would remind you that Ted Kennedy is dead and you can quit beating on him at anytime.

GTO, I would suggest a fool is one who thinks all the crooked politicians and all our problems are the result of a single party as you constantly keep tells us.

 

You are entitled to your opinion, but 2012 is going to the scoreboard for who is right and who is wrong. If the Democrats win, I am going to be insufferable, count on it!

You think you fooled anyone by deleting that original sentence? I can assure you deleting that sentence only fortified MY position, that you are a dishonest, jerk. I am sur I was not the only one who read the original post, where you accused me of raping my wife? Don't run into my wife, she's got a cure for people like you. You should be banned from this site.

For that reason, alone, is more than enough of an incentive to vote for the GOP.

Don I have a hard time thinking some wind mills scatter around some six miles off shore would obstruct to much view for the home owners or interfere with much sailing or other water sports. I'm sure the locals will easily see the towers turning off in the distance

on the horizon much like thousands of Iowans do everyday.  Iowan's homes sit much closer then 6 miles and are typically occupied year round while many of the homes effected in this proposed site are summer vacation homes sitting vacant most of the year. 

I did read one article where one person against the proposed site said they worried the rotating blades could interfere with shipboard radar but that was never a concern voiced by Ted.

 

I have no idea if there is some merit to your remarks about no purchase price, leasing price or royalties to pay or if they played a part in the decision to choose this particular site.  As with any business being able to make a profit and putting out your product for the least

cost possible is always very important.   One would think the companies involved would have done extensive wind studies as they do here in the midwest before building wind farms.   I'm thinking the availability of frequent winds is at the top of their list when choosing a site.

 

Reagan's dead too and you bring him up every week.  I guess I never read the rule that says a dead politician's political history is now off limits and can no longer be brought up for discussion.

GTO, I'm counting on it win or lose. Smiley Happy
