Pay solar at wholesale rates, or, make grid interconnect a separate fee, and charge them for that.

Grid interconnects already appear as a separate fee in most places. Perhaps not at its fair market value, but go fuck a goat if you think I'll pay over a dollar per KW for my occasional nighttime use.


Solar advocates, of course, can't stand the idea they should actually have to pay for the delivery of goods and services, even if it costs them a measely five bucks a month

Try $14, for me. And yeah, I consider that fair. Ending net metering and charging me when they resell my peak-demand production for 10x what they pay me for it? Yeah, I can afford batteries, can they afford every other house going off-grid?

Dear electric companies:

Your time on this planet as profitable private entities has come to an end. Rejoice! You had a good run. But it has ended.

If you succeed in eliminating net metering... Honestly, I bought a $20k solar installation; do you really think I'll put up with your bullshit instead of spending another $5k on batteries and going totally off-grid, costing you even your scammy $14/month "connection charge"?

Think about this long and hard, boys. Right now, you get peak-usage power from me at your totally fictional "residential standard rate", that you turn around and sell to time-of-day commercial customers for 10x what you pay me for it. Which of us do you really think will suffer more if I tell you to come get your meter and shove it up your CEO's ass?

Fuck illegal immigrants! It's not like they're real people with very understandable motives for their "lawbreaking."

Well, then who is to decide what laws to break? I sure could use that new Porsche you bought, but I can't afford it, but it would understandably help me in so many ways..so, therefore I should disregard the law and take it.

Yeah, I do kind of say "fuck illegal immigrants"...but I also am quite WELCOMING of legal immigrants.

Here's a great idea: Die in a fire.

You have a problem with people following the laws and rules of the country (US in this example)?

I mean, seriously, they are there for a reason and should be followed until changed legislatively...I was just trying to put it into a slightly more humorous light.

Hey, here's a great idea!!

Let's also structure the lawsuit settlement, to where if you are in the US illegally from Mexico, that you have to go home and file your claim.

And then, if you want to come back, you follow the laws and rules and apply for citizenship. And, you'll have your new working phone to call those left in the US and talk with them and keep in touch.

Perfect solution!!

AFAIAC Hangouts, Playbooks and the music thingy are defintiely bloatware. Dont know about Nexus5, but my Nexux7 went to CM solely because the bloatware was over the top. SGS3 same way. Yes I have donated to CM, and hate Google+ as much as anyone else.

I saw this quote "

" and thought to myself, where has this guy been?

The internet started out as and has always been anarchy, and that is what made it good. It has been the last bastion of personal freedom and expression since inception. The lack of regulation and rules has made it what it is today.

The internet, was NOT created and constructed for the purpose of business and monetary transactions, that is something that came later and while welcome, was not and SHOULD not be the total focus of the network of networks.

Not to mention...Lenovo fucking up the quality of the product after they get ahold of it.

The old IBM THinkbooks used to be built like a tank, but a Lenovo one today, is so much plastic, I had loose USB ports, etc.

I'm guessing the servers will get the same "cheapening" over process.

A former poster is right...might as well look to get a Dell, and at least not worry about Chinese spyware in addition to the cheaper construction quality.
