Super Duper Energy Machine

Last night, I was researching some off-grid energy options.

We are so-o-o-o-o-o-o far away from anything that will provide the necessary kw/hr in the solar and wind arena that I started looking at different gas/diesel generator options.  My little 30 amp generator will run my RV, and I have the house wired to run off the generator in case of emergency, but air-conditioning is out.  Plus, I’ve got to off-load several circuits in order to run the washer, or dryer, or dishwasher, etc.

And pricey.  Whoo-eee!  They are proud of those things.

So, I came across this video of an Aussie inventor and his energy machine. ……..

Is McCain Trying To Lose?

I’m really trying to like John McCain.  I really am.

I believe him when he says he has changed his mind on tax cuts. I applaud his position change on amnesty for illegal aliens. I believe him to be a credible candidate on the issue of National Security. I think he will make better judicial appointments than either of the two Democrats.

But, this global warming baloney may yet prove to be the deal-breaker for me.

McCain has gone public with his mandatory cap and trade program for reducing CO2, and was quoted in Concord, NH making the ridiculously grandiose statement, “I will clean up the planet.” He told a group of Concord voters, “I will make global warming a priority.”

His senior policy adviser, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, says McCain is trying to focus on the issue while still being pragmatic.

“He wants to have something that he will be able to implement (as president),” Holtz-Eakin said. “His view of the lay of the land is that (his) cap-and-trade (proposal) has political viability.”

Myron Ebell, director of energy and global warming policy for the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, says that is likely. No other candidate has a better shot of getting his plan enacted.

“The Republicans in Congress will not be able to oppose a President McCain. The leadership in both Houses will follow him,” Ebell said. source

McCain figures that his position will help him attract Democrat and independent voters.

Maybe so.

But, he risks losing a ton of conservatives in the process. Just because we have no other candidate to vote for doesn’t mean that we will automatically vote for McCain.

Especially if the fish are biting.

Here is the contact page from the McCain website. Drop them a line and let them know what you think.

Harper’s support growing

But will he have time to overtake Establishment candidate Charlie Ross?

from the Clarion Ledger

Jim Nix hadn’t heard of Republican candidate Gregg Harper before the race for the 3rd Congressional District cranked up in January.

But in a small Mississippi town such as Meadville, where the honor system is still used to pay for a weekly newspaper, word of mouth is a powerful way to score votes.

“Here it’s about who you can trust and who you can’t trust,” said Nix, 73, a resident of the town of about 500. “I’ve been knowing some people a long time who know Gregg. They told me what a great guy he is.”

Despite what some called a weakness in initial name recognition, Harper’s “Faith Campaign,” as supporters have nicknamed it, seems to be appealing to folks like Nix.

And among Mississippi’s Republican elite – such as Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, former Sen. Trent Lott and others – Harper has built up credit he can cash in on by working on many of their campaigns.

Still, it is unclear whether Harper, 51, has persuaded enough voters to overtake former state Sen. Charlie Ross.

Disabled Men, Woman Beaten Over Not Paying ‘Fee’ For Being White

ORLANDO, Fla. — Four men in Orlando were charged with a hate crime after they pummeled a 62-year-old woman and her two mentally-challenged companions at a public park after they didn’t pay a “fee” for being white, police said.Investigators said the victims were walking into a Kaley Park when they were confronted by Christopher Colbert, Erick Golden, Willie Pritts and Antoniette Boone.

Police said the victims were told that since they are white, they had to pay a fee to be in the park.

When the three didn’t pay, the men beat them, officers said.

One of the victims was held up with a knife, a police report said.

Deputies stopped the men a few miles from the park and they were taken into custody.

Thugs, protection rackets, and criminal behavior like this has been around forever. The only difference is that in 21st Century America, it has become fashionable to assign special penalties if the crime involves skin pigmentation.

It is absurd.

The perpetrators committed an act which deserves the full weight of the Florida criminal legal system being brought to bear. But to single out a special category of “hate crime” requires a burden of proof on the prosecution that can be manipulated by defense attorneys, and demagogued by politicians. It is not only potentially a divisive issue, but counter-productive as well.

If justice is indeed blind, then to treat criminals and their victims any differently because of their skin color, sexual preference, religion, or sex is just plain wrong.

Unethical Behavior

Watergate-Era Judiciary Chief of Staff: Hillary Clinton Fired For Lies, Unethical Behavior

Dick Morris’ list of Hillary Clinton’s lies reminds us of a pattern of behavior covering the entire Clinton Administration. Dan Calabrese digs a little deeper, and reveals a lifelong pattern of deception from the woman who would be President…..

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career. … Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

And the clincher? Well, here is Hillary’s “Blue Dress,” so to speak….

Zeifman says he was urged by top committee members to keep a diary of everything that was happening.
He did so, and still has the diary if anyone wants to check the veracity of his story.”

I do hope that diary is in a safe place……..

As they say, “Read it all.”
