Oh bullshit. There was general social consensus in the Jim Crow states that blacks needed to be segregated, that contact between the races should be minimized as much as possible. The governments of these states were doing precisely what the majority in these states wanted.

And you know Jesus would feel this way how exactly?
You wouldn't be a God-fearing bigot if didn't constantly compare homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia.
One brave and short-lived business. That's the problem with these laws; essentially they allow the majority to persecute the minority, under the cover of "religious freedoms". It strikes me as being no different than the same disingenuous arguments used to justify Segregation.
How does one explain the Civil Rights Act of 1968, then?
You do understand that in science, predictions doesn't mean "predicting the future", right?
This is more a discussion about mobile devices, which (unless you jailbreak them) don't trust the user.
Barring a root exploit (which do exist for a bit, and are patched when found), a keylogger on android is much less of a possibility. With Apple, the crypto is handled in hardware, and a keylogger gets to be near impossible (though phishing is not).
You've already answered that the ash is not spread around the land with the mention of those ash ponds (dams really, since they are not small).
It doesn't spread across the land by floating through the air, but it sure sucks when a fly ash dam breaks.
We've been carefully growing for two full seasons, with some plants getting multiple cycles. No losses at all, other than one hailstorm, which we now prophylactically deal with by having the project under a bit of roof where it can still get the sun it needs, but hail can't hit it straight on. Not a perfect solution, but it's something. And it has worked.
I am convinced that the details matter.
Well, not really. The issue is that there are lots and lots of AC devices out there, so what you're doing is converting to a form that is in most common use. If you have surplus power that is free (solar as under discussion), there's no problem, resource-wise, in doing it just that way. Which makes it not very moronic at all. Kind of convenient, actually.
Considerations for a free, non-polluting resource have to be approached with an open mind. The range of consequences is different. They can be quite favorable.
It is MUCH easier to power them off than to build a solar+battery+inverter+separate cirquit[sic] to power them.
Oh, no doubt. But that wasn't what the GP was saying. Also, even though it's easier, it uses up a costly resource when it's on. The solar powered widgets do not. So you save some; the solar system saves all. Food for thought. Gotta figure the ROI. It's not that hard, either. Plus there's the dependability issue. Power fails, your devices keep running... that's nothing to sneer at.
