In Topic: Unanimous - NLRB appointments were unconstitutional

26 June 2014 - 05:02 PM

The Republicans in this Congress seem far more involved in obstructing anything useful happening than in past Congresses, though.  May just be perception.



Sometimes obstruction is useful. Lets not forget that this technique was heavily used during the Bush administration as well. 

The people that were mad about it then are not now. The people that are mad about it now were not  then.


In reality its part of our governmental process. Sometimes getting nothing at all done is better than doing the wrong thing. 

In Topic: Half of Germany's Electricity in June Provided by Solar

What is the point of this post other than to move the goalpost back another 10 yards?

Sent from my iPhone using Carolina

My point was exactly as stated that the title was misleading. Germany likely produced more along the lines of 10% of its electricity in June with solar power not half. They produced half their electricity with solar for about an hour on one of the days in june. Im not moving any goalpost. It is an impressive feat, but grossly misstating it doesnt help anything. It only makes unrealistic expectations. At the moment solar power is a great way to add capacity for peak usage hours. which happen to be during daylight hours. Until energy storage solutions take some big strides it is not a replacement for electric genearation that can generate consistant power output 24 hours a day.

In Topic: Lois Lerner vs Richard Nixon

I'm gonna go with the same thing I told liberals when they scoffed at the TANG not being able to find W. Bush's records. "I can see how it looks shady, but I can also see it happening."

I might be right with you if one harddrive crash had lost e-mails. It starts getting realy fishy when they say they lost 7 people e-mails due to 7 hardrive failures.

Im curious if anybody not involved in this investigation lost their e-mails.

If it's what happened, would they just sing na-na-na and keep demanding something be pulled out of someones ass?


Are the retention rules for the IRS people mandated at the same extent as banks emails are? I don't know the answer to that question.

From what Ive read In the IRS regulations IRS e-mails if they relate to oficial business, are to be treated like all other Federal records. This means by Federal law they should be Archived in a manner to preserve them. Storing them on the harddrive of a computer is not sufficient. At the minimum it seems that Federal law has been violated in the proper preservation of them.


ps it does seem rather suspicious to me that 7 people have now lost e-mails due to seven different computer crashes, and they cant recover data from any of them. It seems that the IRS is either covering something up or has a terrible IT staff

The title of the post is misleading. Germany met half of their demand during the peak solar production. One of the two peaks mentions that the peak was over a period of one hour of the day, the other doesn't specify how long the peak lasted.

Also no one doubts that solar can be used to generate large amounts of electricity, the problem with solar is the same as with wind. Since it isnt consistant in power generation You have to keep reserve generation online for when it cant keep up with demand (ie night time/cloudy days) this makes it dificult, because it doesnt eliminate the need for the plants it supposedly replaces.
