Re: Corona Virus

I will be watching or vacating this site which has given me so much support and made some friends. If your political sewage is more important to you then I guess I Regardless of what Uncle AL decides to do, I do hope you will reconsider and stick around. I greatly enjoy your contributions to the si...

Re: To the progressives here

I don't know how this compares to the land of gas in pipes or over the pond in the U of S, but I suspect the worst! It seems about the same. Some people in my region are paying over $700 per month in electric cost alone. I just don't know how they do it. Supposedly these people work minimum wage jo...

Re: Corona Virus

YOU will not stop me from voicing(writing) an opinion :!: Must be nice... As I still have to do a song and dance to make living, I am basically required to live by the phrase "when in Rome, do as the Romans do". Someday I'll be retired (hopefully) and I can let my tongue run wild and free too... On...

Re: Corona Virus

In my region I have to endure a steady diet of far right wing extremist propaganda coming from all sides. My response to it is about the same as my response here [regarding the images]. I just nod my head, grin, and let it go in one ear and out the other. At any rate, I too have my rants. My only gr...

Re: Corona Virus

Oh, and on those congresspeople, I want to see them have to suffer through 16 hours at the E.R. and be on the same medical waiting list as the rest of us! No more special treatment for these leaches! They're ELECTED "leaders" [0] NOT ROYALTY! [0] "Leaders" in quotation. When I call them "leaders" ou...

Re: Corona Virus

My understanding of socialism is, for example: Tractor Supply is a privately funded, for profit enterprise. It is therefore, capitalist. On the other other hand, a farmers co-op, owned by farmers, operated by farmers, with the collective bargaining power of those farmers would by definition be "soci...

remove the heat from the liquid, then allow it to expand in the evaporator and it'll get gold , I didn't know you were into alchemy Carl...! :P :lol: Merde. It looks like auto-corrupt got me again because "g" isn't particularly close to "c". (either in music or on a QWERTY keyboard). Keep it up and...

Re: To the progressives here

Moon, you almost sound like a salesman for heat pumps! I can assure you I make no commission... but if Trane, Heil, Carrier, York, etc are listening and want to pitch a few bucks my way... :mrgreen: I have no experience with ground heat pumps (it sounds like what we would call geothermal here state...

Re: Corona Virus

Eeehh.... some items on that list may be debated. I'm not sure how a few of them qualify as the communal ownership of the means of production. Quite a few others drives home my original point... socialism for certain ones but not others. I pay for EVERYTHING on that list, but only enjoy very few... ...

Re: How green is "GREEN"

Moon, the trouble is that the babies are born in the wrong places, like East, North, South and West! :( One of these days Dennis, while we both still have a few marbles rolling around upstairs, we've got to meet up. I bet we could chat for hours! Hang in there a few years while I work up the courag...

Re: Corona Virus

Moon, socialism doesn't have quite the stigma over here that it does where you are. State ownership is not necessarily seen as a bad thing as long as the entity is run efficiently. The trouble is that they don't seem capable of doing it that way - they run it like they run the economy - like sh*t, ...

Re: To the progressives here

While I don't think a homeowner should be required to have any certain heating system over another, I may have to play the devil's advocate for a moment on heat pumps... the temperature range in the UK is just below freezing to the low eighties. The range you describe is the sweet spot for heat pump...

Re: To the progressives here

Tax up overall for us. Then I learn that MP's can claim back motoring taxes for the London Low Emission Zone on their expenses! Not a cheap charge at £27.50 per day Am I reading this correctly? £27.50 per day in automotive taxes? Dear god... how do you all afford it? I think as time goes on and peo...

Re: How green is "GREEN"

Sounds like to me we've got too many people and not enough planet. Looks like we're doomed either way. I would have had hope that maybe in the next century we'd start to colonize other worlds, but given the current condition of the education system and the prevailing "woo-woo" religion that's got a ...
