Military pensions are not included in the line you are pointing to. They are under "defense" and then "veterans." The line you are pointing to is for Social Security.
I am an economist and I'd say you did a pretty good job at a couple tough concepts there.
Uh, yeah. Since Hoover ran amok with the FBI and did sort of what you think the USG does, data use in the USG is pretty tightly regulated both in terms of what data can be used for and how it can be shared across agencies. I'd bet that if you asked the people working with this data if they could share it with another agency (for any purpose) they'd tell you it would be criminal for them to do so.
Uh, if the company doesn't track your financial records, how will they send you the bill?
There is a wind energy system that uses the wind energy to compress gasses in underground structures and then uses that gas to burn a natural gas system much more efficiently. I don't have all the specs, but they were building one in Iowa 10 years ago when I last checked.
Inefficiency for electricity is creating heat, so if you want a heater, you're just creating heat in a spot that you're not calling the heater.
I think the HDD draws a lot more than all the LEDs in my house.
It depends on what you run on it. LEDs wouldn't require that much of a load. This isn't a server farm with racks for 1 kW servers, it's a house.
AC isn't really any safer than DC. The one advantage is the brief drops to 0 V that can allow you to remove yourself from the wire--but at 60 Hz you have to be pretty quick to take advantage of that.
So, if 12 volt is so difficult to move, how does the dinkiest little wire get all that power to my hard drive that gets so hot I could heat my lunch on it?
Who can generate electricity at 100% efficiency? Electric is 100% efficient only if you ignore the inefficiency that comes before it enters your house.
Bah! Medicaid, not Medicare. Sorry
A lot of ACA spending would be on the medicare expansion, so doctors, hospitals, nurses, medicine,
Romneycare also had very low enrollment until just before the deadline. I don't think you can conclude that 44 people will sign up via the website before the end of the year.
Also, $300,000,000 is obviously an inflated number that probably includes all funds spent in the state on the ACA.
The market price of the stock affects the company's ability to raise money through additional issues. This affects their ability to take out loans/sell bonds.
