Solar power plants burden
the counties that host them

Los Angeles Times, by Julie Cart

When it comes to attracting business to California´s eastern deserts, Inyo County is none too choosy. Since the 19th century the sparsely populated county has worked to attract industries shunned by others, including gold, tungsten and salt mining. The message: Your business may be messy, but if you plan to hire our residents, the welcome mat is out.

The low cost of natural gas power plants makes all of these commercial solar power plant schemes uneconomic except in Hawaii.

Jerry Brown needs to jump into the ocean and stay there. I lived in the area east of LA and there were these great wind machines that never turned except maybe once or twice during the ´winter´. Too expensive and worthless.

It´s no secret that solar power is uneconomic, and guess what greenies, that means somebody has to pay for it.

The counties should be able to break even, whatever nutbars are funding the solar projects need to build and maintain their own roads, etc.

"...tax revenue would be a fraction of the customary amount because portions of the plant qualifiy [sic] for a solar tax exclusion."

In case anyone needs a definition of "urban parasite" it is these people who demand product but make laws that harm those who produce.

This is the same state that wouldn´t let you bury a pipeline for oil or erect a powerline across those God forsaken deserts but doesn´t seem to mind hundreds of acres of metal and glass completely covered over. I´ll bet they are inconveniencing some type of lizard with all that litter.

The environazis are assisting the crooks to rip off the taxpayers in the biggest government assisted scam in many decades. Solar power is wildly uneconomic and these whackjob liars have to do everything they can to kill normal energy like natural gas and oil, which are being developed at a HUGE rate.

They are desperate to stop cheap energy and force us to pay these criminals billions for stupid "green" energy. Green = expensive and unreliable.

#1 adds perspective. Solar, like nearly anything else, might be the best solution somewhere and sometime.

Where all fuel or other power must be imported at high expense. Or where the location is suitable for virtually nothing else.

But when you see governments pushing massive installations of the wrong technology you are not looking at an energy program, you are witnessing a mania. And one nearly always manifested through massive corruption.

So many of these alternatives projects don´t even work to specifications. Even when the specifications were laughable to start with.

Since the power is all going to LA and environs, no development in the desert should be allowed until every rooftop and backyard in LA is covered with solar panels. Then, if development is allowed out in the desert, the solar companies should bear the full cost of the projects and infrastructure AND REMEDIATION OF THE SITE ONCE THE PROJECT GOES BELLY UP. This is standard for most private projects anywhere else in the USA.

Feds Investigating Sandi Jackson:

Posted By: NYBruin- 2/5/2013 8:17:07 AM     Post Reply
Former Congressman Jesse Jackson isn´t the only member of the house getting looked at by the feds, according to one published report. The Chicago Sun-Times, citing sources, reported Monday that federal investigators are also taking an independent look at former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson. Sandi Jackson acknowledged to NBC Chicago back in December that state officials had questioned her about a $69,000 discrepancy between her campaign finance reports and those of her husband. She blamed the conflict on clerical errors made by transitioning staff members and said amendments to her reports were being made

The U.S Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed to reopen the immigration case of Onyango Obama, delaying the deportation of the 68-year old Kenyan who violated an order to leave the United States in 1992. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, confirmed to CNSNews.com on Tuesday that Obama, who is the president’s uncle, was granted a rehearing last week and his case is being re-opened.

LOS ANGELES — It’s not easy to find a fresh way to photograph Oprah Winfrey. That’s why the editors of O, The Oprah Magazine, recently tried to create a shot that recalled the glory days of Ms. Winfrey’s syndicated talk show. They arranged to photograph her for its April 2013 issue as she stepped onstage to speak to 5,000 attendees at the magazine’s annual conference, a New Age slumber party of sorts for women held at the convention center here last month.

On Nov. 10, under heavy pressure from other students as well as the administration, the College Republicans at Jesuit-affiliated Fordham University cancelled a lecture by conservative political commentator Ann Coulter. The appearance had been scheduled for Nov. 29 at the school’s Rose Hill campus in the Bronx, New York.

Election: How Obama's illegal immigrant
half-uncle fears that he will be deported if
Romney wins the election
The Daily Mail, by Sara Nathan    Original Article

Standing behind the liquor store counter the man quietly and anonymously goes about his job serving customers. He had arrived for his shift promptly at 3pm after filling up his gleaming silver Toyota Rav 4 with gas and taking out the trash at his modest two-storey yellow clapboard house in a downtrodden Massachusetts neighbourhood. This a fascinating glimpse into the life of Onyango ‘Omar’ Obama, 68, the half-uncle of Barack Obama - and an illegal immigrant who Mitt Romney has already signalled should be deported if he wins his bid for the Presidency today.

Robert Kennedy Documents Show
$150,000 Mafia Plan to Kill Castro

A CIA document outlining a Mafia-connected plan to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro for $150,000 is among thousands of Robert F. Kennedy documents made public Thursday, just days before the 50th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis. In the 1964 plan, the mob and "patriotic Cuban exiles" eventually settled on a payment of $100,000 for assassinating Castro, $20,000 for his brother Raúl and $20,000 for revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, plus $2,500 for expenses.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
