You meaning advocating for a No Fly Zone in an area where the Russian Air force is operating daily?

How do you enforce a No Fly Zone?

A. Ask nicely that the planes leave.
B. Hold a press Conference and strongly denounce that fact that you were ignored.
C. Shoot down planes that violate the No Fly Zone.

Who was it again who wanted a No Fly Zone?
Hint: She kept a private email server.

Submission + - Texas Sets New All-Time Wind Energy Record (

An anonymous reader writes: On December 20, a low-pressure weather system crossed through the Texas panhandle and created sustained wind speeds of 20 to 30 mph. The burst of wind propelled Texas to surpass its all-time record for wind energy production, with wind providing 45 percent of the state’s total electricity needs — or 13.9 gigawatts of electric power — at its peak.

The so-called “Competitive Renewable Energy Zones” (CREZ) wind energy transmission project is one of the key reasons Texas calls itself the national leader in wind energy today, with over double the wind generation capacity of any other state. This is a triumph of the public/private partnership.

These universities are ultimately under the control of the Legislature. The CA Government is swarming with Democrats, yet none of them seem to give a fuck about good jobs being sent out of the country. Why is that? wasn't all that long ago they'd be all over this like bees on an open soda can.

The thing is that these days, pretty much anything you buy isn't slow. 98% of computers sold are more than up to the task of every day use.

Seems to me these things are like guys modding their cars. For instance taking a stock v6 mustang, removing the governor, adding a supercharger and replacing various bits and pieces to make a 160 MPH car out of one that will already easily go fast enough to get yer ass put in jail.
