  • You Could Pay More to Fly Under This EPA Climate Change Rule

    This is a good point because air transport will always be dependent on fossil fuels because the extension cord will get in the way.

    We could electrify trains, and this would be a positive for the Climate change community (of which I am not).

    I doubt it. No one is a fan of the IRS, and if your lawyer says don’t release tax forms while they are under audit, I can respect this. Trump should have a press conference with his lawyers present and let them explain what could happen if he lets his opponents see where the IRS has questions.

    In the long run, if there is anything the IRS can pin on him, they will. He could also go over the results of some past audits. In My Experience, the audits are usually misunderstandings that are cleared up by corrections of paying additional taxes. Trump has probably had both issues in the past.

    I bought some LMT when the Iran deal went through. Lockheed makes the successful THAAD anti missile system (which includes the Patriot -3 for shorter range intercepts). These products are authorized for sale in the Middle East and several deals have been approved. My guess is the this will help LMT stock for some future runs with Iran becoming more of a threat.

    Interesting that this factor was not cited in the article, maybe not a big source of LMT profits.

    I was once a member of the SC. We specialized in taking inner city kids to back pack camping. I had to quit when I saw the left taking over the concept of wilderness. The SC could not even come out against unrestricted immigration, because it meant more votes (even though it also meant more growth and more power generation).

    The power companies at one time planned their future power facilities based on expected growth of the population. Not since the SC has become the dominant force in the energy business. Now, if it gets too hot they have a device on your thermostat that turns the AC down until you are uncomfortable and in the winter when too cold you are invited to put on a sweater.

    In a reasonable world, people would be free to spend their money on AC or heat if they wished. They would not be able to force their neighbors to use expensive and intermittent power, and if they were convinced that CO2 was “really” a problem, they would back nuclear and find a place to store nuclear waste. What is happening now is clearly a sham.

    You have it right. This is not a capitulation in Trump’s favor, it is an attempt to link Trump with Russia in favor of Hillary.

    BTW, I agree with Savage that Russia is likely to be our ally in the war with Islamic Terror. And it will also take Trump to be the President for this to happen.

    But Ericson saying that Trump may win is still not an endorsement of Trump’s position. Eric is still a Never Trumper.

    The people you cite are openly speaking for Trump now that the choice is clear. IMO its time for O’Reily to do the same. BTW, I agree with you about their abilities, I hope they survive the hard times that are coming.

    But I wonder, what happened to Andrea Tantaros? She was backing Trump, (or at least coming to his defense) and wrote a book about current problems with feminism and now where is she?

    And what is this concept of a gag order? She is still on the payroll but cannot do an interview?

    I have watched a lot of Fox (and Fox Business which is better) but I fear that the changes — Murdoc giving away and Ailes out. Where are they headed?

  • The Trump Kids Effect

    KC_for_Freedom to DungeonMaster

    “With the Trumps it’s different and I can’t say why.”

    We got the answer from Don Jr. His dad brought them into the business and used good people from differrent class level to mentor them. (People with pHds in “common sense”). It helps to learn to drive a D10 tractor too, but to say that you are as comfortable in this as your own car? These kids got the education of their life. And it came from their Dad and Mom.

    As a aside, my Dad tried to do the same. I had a hammer in my hand before I finished high school. I was also a Scout (Eagle). My father would have loved for me to follow in his footsteps and join his family business (Real Estate development), but he did not provide the right kind of leadership. I learned to admire his values, but my jobs were not the type to teach me the business. Our home life was cratering and he was away at work too much. I did learn how to use tools and will benefit from this forever. I also respect my father immensely and am proud of what he tried to do for me. However, I moved in other directions and while he supported me, I also feel that he felt let down that I did not take his advice and help him develop Real Estate.

    What Trump did was incredible, and very unusual. How many Dad’s have wished to develop their family to the same extent?

    It is interesting that a person with supposed love for country would be this interested in putting a Clinton back in the WH. For personal feelings? This guy did everything he could to sabotage other candidates and even sucked up to Trump while others (JEB for instance) were being knocked off. Character in this case is right out there with Hillary.

    If this guy thinks he will be heir to the establishment mantel and join JEB, Beck, Romney, and the rest in a comeback, he is not only a fool, he is also a very bad judge of political sentiment. This is his true swan song.

    Well, of course you are right if you take the time for plant decay to become oil deposits. We are in agreement.

    Its just that the plant cycle is a one year cycle, and we should be able to burn wood to heat our cabins and camps.

    BTW, I do not believe that CO2 is going to change the climate either. The concentration in the past has been higher and CO2 is plant food.

    Do I support renewable energy? Yes, if a company can make a profit with it — without the govt subsidies. So I support Nuclear power first and solar and wind as intermittent sources.

    Your post is the most valuable lesson from this thread. And it goes for burning wood for heat as well. The Carbon cycle used to be taught in school (photosynthesis was the hard part to understand.) But car emissions are actually not part of the closed cycle. The reason that livestock are being looked at now is that car emissions are relatively under control and the regulators need to move on.

    No, the regulators need to find another line of work.

    My take on why Iraq has always been Bush’s choice (and the rest who advised) because:

    Iraq was easy, We would win in a very short time

    The people were tired of Sadam, they would welcome us

    They stood between Iran and SA, a good place to base our ME operations

    And yes, they pissed us off before

    If Iraq met all these conditions, they would be a good place to start. No one said Iraq was going to be the end. This concept turned out to be very naive but made sense at the time.

    Since we learned late tonight that the weapons were useless I am forced to change views. I initially agreed with your hypothesis. Now I fault the city for not effectively closing the road to traffic, or trucks because this was not done well and I would guess that the driver either decided to mow down people leaving the fireworks show (most started on the beach and moved up to the road) or got on the wrong road and feared that he would be cited for being on a closed road when this was the best chance his jihadist heart would ever get.

    I suspect that he made a quick plan to run over folks because his timing was such that a maximum number of the crowd would be on the road. (When the fireworks is over, you grab your now sleeping kid and head for home. )

    KC_for_Freedom to dsrtsage

    You have it right. It is clear that anyone who wants to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere (Not proven IMO to be a net contributor to any environmental disaster) should prefer natural gas to coal and nuclear to natural gas. Nuclear should be developed to be cost competitive, as a capitalist I agree with this — and so natural gas may have a nitch to fill until the nuclear plant designers can finish their ultimate solution.

    The use of low cost electricity will result in more electric vehicles and water (from desalination) and could result in greater density of green plants on the planet. All a net improvement for the environmental movement, but:

    The environmental movement is not concerned about the environment and they haven’t been for years. They are concerned about power and thus are linked at the hip to the democratic party.

    So it is very true that an improvement in energy in terms of clean energy or low cost energy would be fought because these are the necessary tools for growth. And the environment movement is against all forms of growth except that kind of growth that benefits the democratic party (such as illegal immigration).

    He also could have done far more to raise the level of employment in the middle class. Where did he spend his windfall stimulus? Democratic companies supporting the environmental movement and union staffed organizations around the country.

    The encouragement of oil drilling on federal property and the Keystone pipeline are examples of low cost activities that would have helped the country reduce dependency on the Middle East and also given him the title of the jobs president. (And at little effect to the federal budget or the environmental movement who would have understood the need to cement this connection with his middle class base.

    Instead he did the opposite and IMO this has opened the door to Trump moving in and taking a large percentage of these voters who had hopes but watched them be dashed. (pun intended.)

    I think you would have more of a point if they had lots of arrows in their quiver. (Like Green Arrow). I believe they took the easiest approach and this is Texas.

    When I lived in Texas I learned that Texas has a reputation for quick and sure justice. They were sure this was the guy. and they were sure several policemen had died, thus this guy was a cop killer. They did not need to waste a court’s time at this point. If they guy had thrown down his weapons and surrendered, then they probably would have taken him in. This is not totally clear to me, they might have had an accident with all that C4.

    Loretta gets her job, Bill and Hillary get to keep their cash trove, Comey gets to have his reputation as a good and thorough investigator. Since no recommendation to indite is made, Loretta can “accept” what was given and put everything to bed.

    Trump on the other hand, represents justice and needs to make all of this that he can.

    We have one chance to secure a different future, and it will require a very large (large enough to overcome every attempt to control the election) outpouring for Trump.

    This is where the rubber meets the road and where it makes so little sense that we argue about his tone and choice of words. You know what he is saying and you know what it means to not elect him. Simple choice for me — Trump.

    What needs to follow is a few statements from the rest of the Muslim community to the effect that this is not acceptable behavior in a Western country, and certainly not a part of the holy book that should be taught or learned here.

    In other words, where is the reformation? When is it going to start? It is long over due if the Muslim community has any desire to live in the West in peace.

    I believe this will be determined to be completely against the ethics charter of the Boeing company. Keep an eye on this because Boeing will also want to do business with the US. (And this would seem to be a clear conflict of interest.)

    I agree in so far as your post goes. Teachers must have a deep understanding of the material they are teaching. They must be able to communicate— but the students also must be able to understand. A sense of humor helps because students don’t want to miss a light moment, and will pay better attention if this is part of the teacher’s technique. Showmanship is definitely part of the technique.

    Finally, I would add that a teacher needs to understand what the student’s question is really asking. What is that key point that is missing? Does the student need to revisit a past concept? Does the student almost see an important general aspect? I have seen teachers totally misunderstand a student question and answer something else. In education this does not lead to the right result. Can this part be trained into a teacher? I am not sure—no education class in my experience has even tried.

    Interesting take. My opinion is that the successful operation of Trump enterprises demonstrates that Trump can also run the presidency successfully. The same characteristics of a good CEO would in my opinion be useful in the design of a successful administration.

    There are places where diplomacy may be needed in politics more than in industry. I accept this and I would like to see Trump demonstrate these characteristics as well as his obvious ability to lead. My assumption is that in his business he has encountered events where these political skills were required and so I suspect he has the ability to do this well too.
    It would also seem that he steps in it from time to time, and this is a characteristic that is harmful to running a country, but not fatal, as other leaders have done similar Texas two steps around tricky issues in the past.

    Fortunately for the scouts, your situation is not allowed unless the two are father and son.

    The scouts have followed a no scout alone with a leader rule for years now, to avoid the situation that can occur.

    Of course this rule does not stop a determined pedophile. He can easily be put in a situation of taking a boy home for example.

    I agree that the scouts are one place where young boys are vulnerable and can be victimized, but church, school, and many clubs are also places where this happens. In each case I believe the no adult along with a kid rule is being applied but as I indicated this is not full proof.

    And if they are correct in their analysis of salaries, and I suspect they are, they will likely find that students’ scores on standard tests rise for a time as the younger teachers get their bearings and the enthusiasm for their work inspires the kids.

    My belief is that a good rate of turnover in the faculty leads to improvements in the educational program at the school. The high senior teachers may not have lost it, but all too often they become set in their programs and do not teach with the same vigor as the younger teachers. It would be interesting to study this district into the future and see of more conclusions can be drawn.

    I am sorry, but eminent domain is never “private”. In some cases a public use may involve private contractors, for example building the Golden Gate Bridge.

    The Golden Gate Bridge construction project was carried out by the McClintic-Marshall Construction Co., a subsidiary of Bethlehem Steel Corporation founded by Howard H. McClintic and Charles D. Marshall, both of Lehigh University.

    We never really heard how those rails got laid in Atlas Shrugged, but there may have been some eminent domain.

    There have been some instances where a public entity wanted to use eminent domain and leave the results in private hands but in these cases a vastly important public need must also be involved. (Such as the construction of a hotel and thousands of jobs.) These cases need to be reviewed more carefully and various public bodies are developing restrictions against this practice. But the public basis still must be confirmed.

    I thought this too, except that a paid shill would not have interrupted Cruz every time he was about to make a statement.

    And all Trump said is that this is a non issue and should be ignored as it presently is. As you say, the person who is uncomfortable can leave. And parents, if they have a concern can accompany their kids. This is one of those things that will sort itself out without a law. Federal or State.

    Interestingly, I could tell from my classmate’s questions what it was that they needed to know. Only after I also learned that the teacher did not know what the student was missing did I decide that I might try my hand at teaching sometime.

    Sadly, most math is taught by people who don’t get it. This leads to the students eventually dropping out, because math is cumulative.

    And yes, it is hard to understand why teaching how to do long division makes sense in the age of calculators except for the theory about why it works. This is something that math teachers should understand, but most people don’t need.

    Too bad no one encouraged you more, that is the teacher’s fault.

    I would make certain that starting riots is one of the things that can get you on the “bad” list.

    Recall that Trump was going to let some of the “good” ones back in after his deportation plan took effect.
