Earlier this winter, Oregon regulators sealed a deal to shut down the coal-fired power plant in Boardman by 2020. Now the one other large coal-fired power plant in the Northwest is in the political cross hairs....posted using frpa

Well, if they don’t want coal-fired plants, then they should complete construction on the 4 WHOOPS nukie plants they shut down in the 80’s.
I worked on WPPSS #3 as a pipefitter. It was 70% complete and they shut it down. Purged all the piping so they could re-start construction at a later date. Uhhh, It’s later.
A measure debated Tuesday in Olympia would require the privately-owned plant in Centralia, Washington to stop burning coal by 2020 as well.
Well, I'm in Oregon. This article that you didn't read was about a coal plant in WASHINGTON being DEBATED in OLYMPIA. Next time you don't read the article, please try to not tell an entire state not to reply to you, wherever it is you're from. You won't look so ignorant next time, FRiend.
No, I haven’t, but should have. The book was published the year before I graduated from high school, but I was interested in pursuing my desire to fly and fight in the USAF.
Back in the day, when there were adults in charge, and one did not have to be so concerned about where the country was headed, one could and should be apolitical in the service of ones country.
Now that appears to be nearly impossible.
please try to not tell an entire state not to reply to you,
Oops, bad sentence structure, or something like that. Didn’t mean Oregonian’s, was referring to the STATE itself, as an entity that would shut down a power plant for dubious reasons, and immoral porpoises. AND the same STATE that years ago would not let people pump their own gasoline, that Oregon.
...and now we find out it’s Washington all along. Hey I was rushed, no pun intended. Enough of the excuses.
I read Atlas Shrugged years ago and if the idiots today manage to kill off ready availability of power to fuel their blogs, brew their latte and enable their texting then I think the useful idiots who blindly follow the idiots will be thinking more along the line of moving against their democrat buddies. There is a larger conservative population in Oregon than a lot of people believe. I wonder if the democrat party will be supporting the revolution in the streets that their dictatorial policies will bring about in the same way that they support the MB in Egypt.
Say WA? Evergreen State ping

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this ping list.
Ping sionnsar if you see a Washington state related thread.
The dream of the Democrats is to make us all live in shantytowns and eat mudcakes to dull the pangs of hunger.
Meanwhile, the commie elite relish in the rare leftover technologies of the old world.
“I don’t think too many people are going to accept living like peasants in the 17th century.”
You would be surprised. There are millions of thoroughly brainwashed people in this country. They will do absolutely everything that the elite tell them to do, even sacrifice themselves for the “greater good” without thinking so much as a single thought. How else can we explain the continued existence of Obama supporters?
They haven't felt the pain of sacrifice yet.
Once they do, I believe a lot (not all) will change their minds.
