When NAFTA passed, nothing happened. The idea of non-US made products was only "theoretical". He's brilliant.
As far as this solar issue, isn't there more pressing things that a presidential candidate should be consumed with? Russia, China, Iran, ( Clinton, in my opinion, will hurt this country more than help or lead. She has this sense of entitlement that wreaks. This is unfortunate as the battle and movement to be the "first female" president of the United States trumps (no pun intended) and defiles the dignity and integrity of the office of POTUS. I for one will be happy when there are no longer pursuits of social experimentation and where decisions of this kind of import will be based on what they should, the merit and qualification of any candidate. Perhaps this is a Utopian perspective on our democracy, however, it isn't a bad standard from which to start qualification.
It's a trap no matter what. Unless you are contributing more than that big corporations are to political campaigns, then there will be holes through this thing the next time the public blinks. Government control will allow them to keep the local loop under their control. It might be better in the short term, but in the long term it will be the same. I don't think the FCC action is bad, and in fact I'm glad for the moment, but the long game has always belonged with the corporations. We need to get Aaron Swartz-ish on them. And, until corporations aren't the ones putting candicates on the ballot, we need to keep on them forever. Keep your eye on the FCC.

I took a vacation from RIAA and MPAA entertainment purchases from 2000-2013, but it seems I need that vacation again. Thanks for the reminder.
Also, anyone not running a DNS server, you should. We also need a durable decentralized method of locating a server or more mobile content delevery methods.
