"Since 666 isn't the number of the beast but 619 is due it being off by one in the originally written language it is even funnier.
Ancient Hebrew numerical system left much to be desired and has opened up more cans of worms and confusion than Americans complaining about socialistic meteric system."

How amusing. You know that the Book of Revelation was written in Greek and not in Aramean let alone Hebrew right?

Comment Re:Actually, China is ramping up wind and solar (Score 0) 191

So your answer is that the governmental regulations and taxes(permitting and hearings) are the majority of the cost. That isn't an economic argument for solar being the better option. Your simply stating that the governments have chosen solar as the winner. And that also leads back to my argument that it is in fact misallocation of resources. You are clearly economically ignorant. I suggest you go read Hayak's The Road to Serfdom .

The majority cost in every product is labour. You are stating that there are more labor costs in solar and wind than in other. Then saying it is cheaper. It can't be cheaper and require more labour. That is why its a terrible idea. Indeed even Obama said it would cost more when he famously said that your electric bill would go up under his plan.
