Comment Re:Abolish NASA, and deregulate aerospace. (Score 1) 143

not quite the average toddler's level of understanding.

Project much?

Spoken like one with no clue at all of NASA's decades of hostility to private enterprise in space. Google for "OTRAG" for one example of a potential competitor that they pulled out all the stops to kill off.


Comment Re: Total regulatory impact 2-3 percent (Score 1) 466

Strange. I thought I was referring to US businesses investing in energy, not what your neighbors are doing.

Keep telling yourself you're cool using incandescent bulbs to heat up your house so you can run your diesel air conditioner to cool it down. We'll be here spending 1/20th the dollars on efficient LEDs and renewable energy that doesn't need to run all the air conditioners full blast.

Then you can complain about why you're broke.

I'm sorry, my translator can't handle responses from people who think it's a good idea to pay more for energy due to their choice of inefficient energy methods.

Can you shake your stick at me a bit more, and maybe it will figure that out?

Maybe if you say something like "Fire good! Sun bad!" it will realize it's chimp.

Comment Seattle gets 1000/week in new people (Score 1) 164

Most people don't realize that over 1000 people move to Seattle every week.

Yet we build far fewer rental or owner-occupied properties than that.

Most homeless are actually from here. Literally the same county. Most immigration is from our own state, then from California and Oregon and BC.

Homelessness is occurring in all cities nationwide - Red Blue Purple doesn't matter.

Comment Re:Keystone pipe is mainly for shipping oil to Chi (Score 1) 466

Ever hear of those things called the Rocky Mountains?

I appreciate your condescending, smug response. I liked it so much I poked around and found that Kinder Morgan built a pipeline across the Canadian rockies in the 50s and expanded it in 2004. It can transport 300k barrels a day and there are proposals to triple it. For comparison, Keystone is ~500k barrels/day.

So you're completely totally wrong. Put that in your pipe and send it over the rockies!
