Debate Over Solar Panels Rages


Comment For Obama’s clean air act!
08-09-2013

Environmentalist want Clean Air, Wind Power, and Solar Power, but yet they won’t let them bury wires under ground to get concerted to the grid, and now they are complaining about how to install them.

Come-on people, you either want clean air or you want power to live in comfort, Dams and Steam Power can cover more homes than windmills covering many acres or miles of land, just drive around and see how much land is for these wind mills, a lot of this land to be used for other things.

Another thing, you put Solar Panels on your roof, and later on down the road you get a leak in your roof, what is the cost to remove and reinstall them because your roof leaked, did any one ever think about that.

People pushing them and people selling them don’t tell you that there is a cost to remove and install them after fixing their roof.

Debate over solar panels rages on in Kirkland

By Jeff Burnside
Published: Aug 9, 2013

KIRKLAND, Wash. — A group of Kirkland residents say the solar panels in their neighborhood are an eyesore, and they want the city to do something about it.

The residents say the problem stems from a lack of clear laws and permits for solar panels, which are different in every city and county.

Troy Carpenter said a solar panel installed next door reaches across his property line and reflects sunlight right at his house.

“There’s lots of good ways to do solar projects and we’re very pro solar. But there’s also bad ways to do solar projects. This is a great example,” Carpenter said.

Carpenter’s neighbor got permits for the panels, but the code is vague.

“There’s concern that we really ought to change our regulations,” said Kirkand Planning Director Eric Shields.

The city of Kenmore is also dealing with some backlash related to its solar panel laws.

Patrick O’Brien used to have 20 solar panels mounted on a sturdy frame next to his Kenmore house, but those panels are now stacked in his backyard.

“On a day like this, it ‘d be a perfect day to be making lots of electricity,” he said.

The city claims he didn’t follow the rules and recently ordered him to remove the panels or pay $200 a day in fines.

“This, this is a crime. This is a crime. This is administrative crime. It could have been totally averted if the city has just done what they told me were the rules at the beginning,” O’Brien said.

Experts say there’s enough sun in the northwest to make solar panels financially and environmentally worthwhile, but the complex permits required to install the panels are slowing growth.

“Why not combine all of those into one single permit that gives everybody all the information they need at once? Pretty straight forward, pretty simple,” said Mike Nelson, a leading expert in solar energy.

Unifying those rules would require action in the state legislature, but Nelson said there’s nothing currently in the works.

What is Race? What is Slavery? and What is United?


Comment For Your Thoughts
July 22nd 2013

What is race?

Go look in a Dictionary and you will see many definitions, but you will not see that it all breaks down to one meaning, some one is something that you are not, or, trying to be better than some one else, trying to be the richest, or trying to be number one.

Can you deny that you don’t want the most money, that you don’t want to be numero uno, the top dog.

Look around you, you have one group that think they are the supreme and can do any thing they want, and in the mean time they are giving people who will stand up for this Country and fight for it to keep it free, then you have ones that will do any thing to cause trouble, these are cowards, they hide behind masks and ware hoodies to hide their faces, they destroy property, they don’t care who owns it, just as long as they can destroy some thing, or steal what ever they can get their hands on.

I am not talking about any one race, all it takes is one, and the rest follow, I can say one thing Blacks do stand up for their rights, but they go to far, however, the rest of the people could care less what happens to this Country. Look at the laws that have been passed and what have they done, nothing, why because they believe what the news media says, they don’t listen to all sides, they take it as the  gospel truth, the news media only want’s to sell papers not the truth.

What is Slavery?

Slavery is what all working class people are today, they are slaves to the rich, same as in the past, slave owners were the rich and backed by Government, and the same stands today, so no matter who you are today, if you are not corporate execs, at the top, then you are a slave and have to abide by their rules, no matter what color you are. You can say that you don’t work and are getting aid from the Government, well then, you are a slave of the Government, if you are not the top dogs then you are a slave.

What is United?

It sure not this Country today, this Country has become a nation of the divided, where would this Country be today if early settlers had not fought to be free from Dictators, well look around you, you have let this Country slowly move back to that time when we had the wars here, is this what people want today is to go back to where one person rules this Country, if not you are doing a very good job of going back in time.

This Country can not call it a UNITED States, it is a long way from it today, today people have become more divided now then they were in the past, and as long as we have people trying to keep every one fighting each other, we will never become UNITED and be able to ward off a Dictator.

Come on people let stop fighting each other, let protest against these people who are keeping this Country from Uniting, causing hate among people, if we want to form a better union we have to join arm and arm and fight unjust taxing, Discrimination, and a Dictating Government before we start fighting against our selves, it is its people who make a Country great, not the Government, people are the Government, not the other way around, and today the Government is the problems of every thing going wrong.

Any one other than a black Shoots or hurts a Black, you have a riot and destruction, and not all of them in these riots are black, but that is what they want you to believe, but turn every thing around, so what’s the big deal, there no discrimination when the reverse happens.

========================================================================

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.
971659_10201821470364958_692813271_nYou know Ben Stein has a good comment about this Country of today: My confession: I don’t like getting pushed around for being a  Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for  being Christians….

I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.

I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I  can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God  as we understand Him?

I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are  wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little  different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not  funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events – terrorists attacks, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she  was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school.

The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself.  And we said  OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our  children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr.  Spock’s son committed suicide).  We said an expert should know what he’s talking about.  And we said okay.

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it  doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard  enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with, ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to  hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how you can send  ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think  twice about sharing.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward  this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will  think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it. No one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and Respectfully,

All Protesting Organizations Hurt the Rights of Free American


Comment By Bob L.
o6-04-2013

These organizations say thru are for protecting the people, but they are no more than a group of people who are taking money from taxes, to promote violence and to change the Constitution to help them selves.

In this article I read a lot of comments, and there was a lot of sense made in what was said, but it is a shame that this is made for the good of all Americans, not just a minority of people.

Are people so ignorant now that they can not see that our Government, Democrats, Republicans, Independence, and any organizations that want to get into Government, they are not looking out for the people, they are only looking out for them selves to get the free perks that they give them selves.

You can blame the GOP all you want, but when it comes down to it, the Democrats are also in it up to their necks, so put the blame where it lies, GOVERNMENT, they are the case of all the problems in this Country, if you don’t believe it look back in to history and see how this all came about.

It was the rich that started slavery, it was the Government who promoted it, it was not just one group of politicians, it was all of them, Even the Presidents.

There is a lot of articles on Slavery, and it was not just the blacks, it was Native Americans, it was Whites, as well as Blacks, and of today it is still going on today with all, if you are not in the two hundred thousand percent income you are classified a slave by all above.

Every thing is always the GOP, this shows just how little Americans pay to the news, they seem to listen and believe the news media that is tied to families and relatives working in the White House, in other words this is called a Conflict of Interest.

About 140 arrested in NC during NAACP protest

Associated Press
By Chris Kardish, Associated Press | Associated Press
06-04-2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — About 140 people have been arrested during the latest weekly demonstration led by the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP against the state’s Republican-led General Assembly.

Police estimate that roughly 1,000 people attended a rally late Monday afternoon behind the Legislative Building. Hundreds later entered the building, with those intending to get arrested wearing green wrist bands.

Those arrested were taken away in plastic bindings. They bring the total arrested in the weekly demonstrations to about 300. The rallies have taken place nearly every Monday since April.

Hundreds more waited outside to cheer on those arrested as they were transported to a detention facility.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has spearheaded demonstrations to protest cuts to social programs, changes to voting laws and other issues championed by the GOP.

Jobs Not On The Unemployed List


Comment for lost farm land and jobs.
09-30-2012

A lot of this was once Farm Land and jobs, and without jobs, you have home less, home less can’t buy these homes that were once Farm Land, and the home less affects every one, and homes built on farm land means the Farm Land is gone forever, NOW if farm land is lost for YUPPY homes, where will your Food and Dairy products come from, SAME PLACE THAT YOUR OIL COMES FROM.  

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Obama is quick to say what he has done as to people he thinks he has put back to work, but how about the ones that this Administration has put out of Business along with Environmentalists, that are raising prices in the Grocery stores and making it to where these are providing food shortages.

Prices go up while Income goes Down, this also goes for the farmers profit and loss, not just for the Average American Worker.

If it is not Governments Taxing Farms out of Business, it is government regulations, ether way, once this land is lost it can never come back, because Governments will have it plowed under for more homes.

Obama is Shaking a lot of hands of Foreign Governments and making them big promises, BUT How ABOUT the American people who have to give up their freedom for His Promises to Foreign Countries, When are these Governments here in this country going to under stand that it is this Country that they were ELECTED to protect and make sure that jobs stay here.

Calif dairies going broke due to feed, milk prices

By GOSIA WOZNIACKA | Associated Press
09-29-2012

HANFORD, Calif. (AP) — In nearly six decades of running a dairy in central California, Mary Cameron made a name for herself in a male-dominated industry: She led several dairy organizations and was honored as Outstanding Dairy Producer of the Year.

But the 82-year-old Cameron — who still drives a tractor and supervises her Hanford dairy — is on the brink of losing her life’s work. She can no longer pay the bills. Her bank has classified her loan as distressed. And she can’t afford enough feed for her 900 milking cows and 1,000 heifers.

“I have been in this business for 57 years and I have never been in financial trouble like I am right now,” said Cameron, who runs the Atsma-Cameron Dairy with her two sons. “I’m on the verge of bankruptcy. It’s horrible and inexcusable.”

Cameron is not alone. Across California, the nation’s largest dairy state, dozens of dairy operators large and small have filed for bankruptcy in recent months and many teeter on the edge of insolvency. Others have sold their herds or sent them to slaughter and given up on the business.

Experts say California dairymen face a double whammy: exorbitant feed costs and lower milk prices. The Midwest drought has led to corn and soybean costs increasing by more than 50 percent this summer, stressing dairymen from Wisconsin and Minnesota to Missouri. But in California, milk prices have also lagged behind those in the rest of the nation, exacerbating the crisis.

And while milk revenues in California have soared to over $7.5 billion in 2011, making milk the top agricultural commodity, higher revenues mean little, farmers say, because it costs so much more to produce the milk.

“I don’t think there’s a milk producer in the state who is profitable right now,” said Michael Marsh, CEO of Western United Dairymen.

Since 2008, California has lost nearly 300 dairies, with 1,668 remaining as of January, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture. There are no official estimates on how many dairies have shuttered in 2012 — but interviews with dairymen and experts indicate several hundred dairies could be in danger of going under.

“It’s been like a floodgate,” said Riley Walter, a Fresno-based agricultural bankruptcy lawyer who has worked on 58 cases of dairies in financial trouble this past year — from bankruptcies, to liquidations, to operations taken over by receivers.

“Recently, I had two men over 60 years old who broke down and sobbed in court,” Walter said. “You would be surprised how much these men care about their cows.”

At the Overland Stock Yard in Hanford, owner Peter Belezzuoli said he sees two to three dairymen selling their entire herd every month, compared to about four per year before the crisis. More cows are being sold for slaughter, he said. And the value of dairy cattle has plummeted by as much as 50 percent in the past five years.

“It’s no different than the housing industry, where people lost all the equity,” he said. “People have the same cow, but now it doesn’t have the same value.”

Economists say milk and feed prices always fluctuate — but it’s the margin between the two that counts, and how far apart the thin years are.

Only three years ago, falling milk prices forced many dairymen to go under. The current crisis, dairymen say, came too quickly. Many still have unpaid loans, have exhausted their equity, and can’t get new loans.

For Cameron, who grew up washing barns and feeding cows, costs of production vastly surpass revenues. She’s losing $40,000 every month, she said.

Her parents emigrated from Holland in the 1920’s and started a dairy in California’s Central Valley. After college, Cameron followed in their footsteps: Her office wall is filled with awards and news articles touting her successful dairy career.

Today, Cameron owes $7.5 million to her banks and creditors, and has run out of cash for feed. To make ends meet, she has sold cows for beef and fed her herd less grain — but that means milk production is down and so is revenue.

Cameron recently saw a bankruptcy lawyer and may have to sell her entire herd and dairy.

“It just makes me sad,” Cameron said. “This is a world I love, this is my life.”

For her woes, Cameron blames state officials’ decision to keep milk prices lower than those in other states.

California has had its own milk pricing system for dairy since the 1930’s, separate from that operated by the federal government in other states. The California Department of Food and Agriculture sets minimum prices that must be paid to farmers in the state for five classes of milk.

In recent years, California’s prices tended to be lower than in other states. In 2011 and 2012, California’s price for milk used to make cheese was frequently $2 or more lower per hundredweight of milk than in the rest of the nation.

CDFA spokesman Steve Lyle said the reason for lower prices is that milk supply exceeds demand in California.

The glut forces California producers to sell much of their milk to makers of products such as cheese, which pays much less than selling milk for drinking. And since much of the milk is sold out of state, the price farmers receive is lower to reflect higher transportation costs.

Several dairy organizations filed suit in August, alleging that CDFA failed to follow the law when it refused to increase the minimum price of milk sold for cheese to bring it in line with prices around the country.

Economists say the market itself will lift prices: as more dairymen go out of business, fewer cows will produce less milk, which in turn will lead prices to go up.

For Cameron, higher prices would mean she could keep her dairy. When she dies, she wants her children to scatter her ashes in the corrals.

“That’s where I belong,” she said, “…that’s where I’ve been all my life.”

Comment What a disgrace!!!
07-22-2012

The Real American in Uniform With the Symbol of freedom on His Shoulder

This is a disgrace to the Military and to the Uniform, if you are gay and want in the military that is fine but to display What Ever You Call It, it is a disgrace to the Uniform of the United States Of America.

These Men and Women who wear the Uniform do it PROUDLY, and they do it to Protect this Country and the U.S. Constitution and to keep this Country Free so you can act like What Ever, they don’t do it to flaunt their Life Stile and say it’s my right, if this is the case, then Women have the right to breast feed their Babies in Uniform, you can’t give one rights without giving them to others as well.

If  you want to wear the Military Uniform of this Country, WEAR IT with PRIDE, not just to say I am some thing other than a proud protector of FREEDOM, Freedom is for all not just Certain People or groups.

The real American Military Person in Uniform is not out there waving a flag saying I am, they are out there protecting the Flag and the Constitution.

If you want to wear pink clothe with purple polka dots on them and dance around like fairies, that’s fine, BUT not in a Military Uniform.

Thur.05-31-2012

It is time to stand up to these people before it is too late and they have control, and the place to start is with this Administration, Local and Federal, this also goes for judges who think these laws are their laws to with however they want to do with as they want, and as the laws go today they are eating away at the US Constitution, it is just like the laws that are on the books now, they don’t want to enforce existing laws, they want new laws that these nincompoops won’t fight to changes.

Freedom is not Free, It Takes Proud Americans to Keep Freedom


Comment By An American
Sat,04-14-2012


Here is a story of a proud American who along with many who wanted to defend his Country and gave their lives to protect our Constitution and some have paid the price with the loss of legs, arms, and mental problems, NOW, can our President say this, has he put his life on the line to protect this Country, or did he spend his time dodging his duty like Bush hiding behind a PEN and PENCIL.

Does any one know if our unqualified Leader has ever served in our Military on the front lines to protect the United States and its Constitution, or is he one of those jack of all but knows nothing, an  fly’s by the seat of his pants and flips a coin to see what his next order will be, and then blames some one else when it all goes wrong, and takes credit if by chance it just happen to go right.

Obama Defends Higher Gas Prices


Comment By An American for American Freedom
Thur.02-23-2012

If Obama is a true American like he says he is, then why is he trying to destroy it by dividing the American people??

Why does Obama and the White House want to help every one else and not America??

Why does Obama want to give Taxes Americans pay to protect Freedom to other Countries and not this one??

Why is Obama and the White House stopping Oil Production in this Country if he want to get off of dependency on Foreign Oil??

Why does Obama and the White House want Higher Gas Prices, what is in it for them to destroy this Country??

Why are there no full-time jobs for middle class, and why are they only for College Graduates??

If this trend goes the way Obama and the White house want it, you better hope you are making over ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS an hour, or you will be joining the people who this Administration has put on the streets looking for work and a place to live.

Answers to most of these questions you will find in the article!!
