Personally, I am tired of it all. We are just Americans here.

BTW, when we buy our tesla (waiting to see the model X, and will then decide which), it will be integrated with the solar system so that if we lose electricity, then during the daytime, we will have 2-3 circuits on it, as well as charging the Tesla, and then at nighttime, it will borrow from the car. Pretty cool.
You will also like that SOlar City is going to expand beyond solar. They are going into energy, including geo-thermal.
In fact, I talked to one of their engineers about how to modify fracking to make it useful for geo-thermal. Basically, the standard approach is vertical down to the same levels within the reservoir, turn horizontal, frack and then pump it in. BUT, if you do not do a LARGE frack, and add one more line that goes down deeper (below the reservoir), frack that one hard, and then use that to force the oil/gas into the upper piping, you can use this once the well is dry, for geo-thermal. And the nice approach is that the collectors are not fracked hard, so it will not force other elements into the aquifers.
Regardless, one thing about Musk, that man is damn exciting.
The NSA is already on record as
The NSA is on record for lying to Congress.
They are the boy that cried wolf. They can not be trusted to be honest with this issue if being dishonest is to their disadvantage. If an inquiry into the NSA shows he never brought these issues up then that's a different story.
If he did anyway, he would have been shit-canned immediately and investigated
In a fictional place with those rules you imply maybe, but we don't know about the levels of access in the NSA or even exactly the scope of his job.
Who are the one keep electing those assholes into Washington D.C. ? We, the people.
Personally I think not enough of you people are getting off your arses to vote - hence more arseholes get in. If US politics had more of a level playing field instead of being a game for the rich and obsessed there may be a bit less foul play.
However it's very clear that you are just spinning a tale to bring in the marks instead of not actually being able to see the very large number of differences that you'd know of just growing up in a western society.
This lying bullshit of yours is tedious.
You are clearly pretending to be too stupid to be able to tell the difference - then calling others stupid who don't fall for your bluff.
To make it worse you are trying to pretend that you haven't written the comments you have.
If I want to hear "just try it you'll like it" stuff from slimy pieces of shit I can visit a prison and ask a drug dealer to let me hear his spiel.
I switched from Sprint to Ting, a Sprint MVNO that does strict PAYGO. $6/mo per connected device and charges for talk, text, and data based solely on usage in a given month; if I talk less next month my bill goes down, if I use more data it goes up.
My phone bill for two devices is around half per month what Sprint charged us.
ARM runs on multiple operating systems
Uh, what? Slow down there, you're getting all confuzzled.
and in fact, Windows RT and Android can run on the same tablet
Windows RT is not Windows. It is Windows' retarded younger sibling.
Unless you plan to give up your computer, car, mass transit, pretty much all mass produced goods, and go back to an egrarian lifestyle, you will have to deal with industrial accidents.
But we could have a lot less industrial waste if we cut out the unnecessary industrial output that's associated with a throwaway culture. We shouldn't be replacing all these things all the time. Cars should be made with polyurethane bushings and heim joints instead of these shitty ball and socket tie rod ends, for example, so that they will actually last. Instead they shake themselves apart and the labor costs for replacing what could have been lifetime components become so high that it's cheaper to buy another vehicle.
In the end, so called "renewable" resources may be our best bet, but they are not sufficient for our needs currently, and may never be, and who knows what genie those technologies have bottled up for the future.
Really? You're going to FUD on renewables? You have an agenda of greed, and it's particularly transparent.
We don't need to wonder how big the tsunamis in the region were because they planted a marker at the highest point an earlier big one reached. It said don't build below here. Guess where they put the nuclear plant, and then didn't put the backup generators on pylons? The disaster at Fukushima Daiichi was guaranteed to happen given a large enough timescale. Sadly, it was that.
massive earthquake and tsunami that caused three of the station's reactor cores to melt
Also, cold weather caused the Challenger to explode.
Thank you. This disaster was caused by GE, Tepco, and the US and Japanese governments. It was guaranteed to happen by design. Whether that design was malicious or idiotic is irrelevant.
The most important thing that should be done is to talk rationally about radioactivity. But so long as the anti-nuclear shills keep screaming at the top of their lungs
The most important thing that should be done is to talk rationally about whether humans are mature enough to manage nuclear power safely. It stands to reason that we are not because we're underutilizing the technolgies that we have just to keep the fissibles out of our atmosphere when we burn coal. We're lazy, greedy, self-destructive monkeys and I simply don't trust any of the monkeys with nuclear power.
When we learn to care for people to whom we have no obvious connection, we'll be ready to use power systems with the potential to deny our use of an area for thousands of years.
You were doing fine for about one sentence. Then you got all partisan. Look at what the economy has done under the reps, look at what it's done under the dems, realize that most of the presidents who presided over a time of economic health were receiving a windfall that had nothing to do with their administration and little to do with the prior administration. For example, the economy surged under Clinton, but it was a bubble that would have happened no matter who was president.
I don't know if the libertarians could improve anything, but I know the republicrats are not the solution.
They've been trying to build one for years (Keystone XL) but have been stonewalled at every turn by Obama.
Please, tell us about how the Keystone pipeline will be carrying North Dakota Sweet Crude. Tell us how that is an exact equivalent to the tar shale crude that the Keystone Pipeline.
More to the point, give us the citations on how The President personally stopped the North Dakota sweet crude by personally not allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built.
This is why no one pays attention to you asshats. Now go back to Fox News to get your daily dose of affirmation. They'll tell you what you know.
