All the way with nuclear!

Atomkraft!!!

Jack is Back!

Before Thorium, we built this puppie at Hanford (which we are still operating) back in 1978. Might called it a predecessor.

All we need is the nerve, and political will to use proven non-fossil baseload power generation but pigs will fly first.

Get Frederick back on the garage thorium reactor!

No discussion of nuclear by the self proclaimed sciency guys?

John Katshit: Im Very Seriously Considering Running For President in 2020

I'm considering playing Center Field for the Yankees.
Posted by: Nevergiveup at November 25, 2018 11:43 AM (Fh8wK)


Not if you're a Yankees fan, you won't. I want to play right field for the Cardinals, but as a slow, old white guy, it would be a disaster for the team. They'd lose 140 games.

Which is the point.

Katsick isn't running for President. He's not trying to win anything, he wants to lose the Presidency for Don Trump.

He should be treated as the enemy.

Jack is Back!

If we are really heading into a very cold period due to the ultra solar minimum, then we will need all of the coal that we (and other countries) can produce.

I actually have wondered if that was one of the reasons the President Trump pushed for opening the coal mines again.

Note the pictures used. President Trump looks like a raving lunatic, while Senator Ernst looks all serious and intelligent in her "smart girl" glasses.

Coal?

Why can't they build that City Country on Rock & Roll?

"Note the pictures used. President Trump looks like a raving lunatic..."

It started before his election and has continued. GWB was given the same treatment.

The rear admiral is still at it:

When the Trump presidency crumbles before a primary challenge in 2020, I'll think back to these lines from King John:
"Your nobles will not hear you, but are gone
To offer service to your enemy,
And wild amazement hurries up and down
The little number of your doubtful friends."

narc,

I believe most of the major distillation tower processes use steam produced using natural gas. Mostly, in a combine cycle power generating process. A co-generation scheme where you get higher cycle efficiency and a cheaper distillation.

Senator Ernst made a big deal of her experience cutting off the testicles of farm animals as a metaphor for getting the Budget under control.

Was she all talk or did she actually make an impact?

pagar

That link in the last thread about http://fly.historicwings.com/2012/11/one-a-day-in-tampa-bay/
is especially interesting to me, at least, considering that the first manned aircraft was Dec 1903. The reason that Glenn Martin made the modifications proved that politicians used to do things for the good of the country too. I'm not so sure that investigations in Wash do that much anymore.

I propose Bill Kristol immediately hoist anchor and set sail for the Andaman Islands.
His brave chin sets itself resolutely forward as the Sea Cuck cleaves the waves atop the vasty deep. he indominatably wades ashore to cite some Shakespearean doggerel to the Sentinelese natives in a vain attempt to convert them to his bizarre nevertrump cult.
They shoot him with about 32 arrows and give us all a little relief.

Frau,

Yes, I know they did the same thing to W., and they have been doing it to Trump since the campaign.

I guess it was the juxtaposition of that picture of him with Joni Ernst all made-up for TV wearing those smart girl glasses which just sent me over the edge.

Iggy, there seems to be a fine line between heroism and naivete, depending on how big the risks are. Here's another sad story, where one might have thought the risks were not so great:

bk is such a drama queen.

Jack is Back!

Joni Ernst represents Iowa, right? What is Iowa's major product? Made from Corn. If we impose sanctions on SA, does ethanol production gain from that?

Just thinking out loud.

henry

Rich, bk is an organ grinder’s monkey... he doesn’t care which organ grinder feeds him, he just does his dance. A banana must be his reward.

Jack, npr has a story that Wyoming fracking will come online by Feb, with more land sales (on federal lands) then too. Ethanol not needed, except Iowa shows why brims on farmer’s hats are curved. (They fit in the mailbox where the government checks show up).

Yes she got Pruitt's scalp fir the effrontery of changing the ethanol mandate, wait till she finds out Whittaker had the same view well that's why he lost the primary.

Rich, at some point I gotta shovel. Much easier an inch or two at a time.

rich,

I can provide evidence of him destabilizing GOP presidents going all the way back to Bush 41.

Why no one has called him out on this, I do not know. Kurt Schlichter started the cruise director mockery, but that's about it. The guy who founded the American Spectator (whose name escapes me right now) wrote a lovely piece years ago saying Kristol was the type of guy who liked to sit in his study sipping brandy and wearing a smoking jacket, when he doesn't smoke.

We had our Village Christmas parade last night. Firetruckpaloozza, all decorated out with lights, and ornaments, et.al. Then the mayor lights the tree which is in Lake Agawam park across from the Memorial. The village is all deck out in the Christmas spirit.

My Dad started the Christmas fund, and installed the electrical system and permanent under the pavement pipes for the tree's that span the length of Main St. and Job's Lane. Really pretty. Gets you into the spirit.

Now we have to get in the mood to us that spirit to put up a tree:🎄🎅🤶

henry,

I know Ethanol is only mandated in a few states and blue hells like Portland but all the automakers build a lot of flex fuel vehicles. i don't think it is going away because of Wyoming fracking but YMMV.

Jack is Back!

henry,

Just re-read your post. Now, I have figured out you are talking about oil not ethanol. My bad.

Kevlar Kid

The missionary's last word: "Ouch."

henry

JiB, the US requirement for imported oil will go away as drilling increases. Flex fuel vehicles raise costs (as doelnethanol as fuel). My mileage already suffers from that, and my small engines suffer even more from the blends.

Note, I live on a grain farm. My property value is directly linked to ethanol as much as any schmoe in Iowa. It should be kept for drinking, not for fuel.

The Camp Fire now has been extinguished.

A massive wildfire that killed dozens of people and destroyed thousands of homes in Northern California has been fully contained after burning for more than two weeks, authorities said Sunday.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said the Camp fire had been surrounded by firefighters after several days of rain in the Paradise area.

The nation's deadliest wildfire in a century killed at least 85 people, and 249 are on a list of those unaccounted for. The number of missing dropped in recent days as officials confirmed that more people were alive.

An investigation into an asylum seeker posing as a 15-year-old boy at an English school has concluded he is a grown man.

The man was placed in the Stoke High School in Ipswich, Suffolk, after entering the United Kingdom illegally and claiming asylum, with the Home Office accepting that he was a “child”.

There was a backlash from parents after pupils circulated pictures of the Middle Eastern migrant on social media, with one accompanying a picture of him with the caption: “How’s there a 30-year-old man in our maths class?”

The Home Office is declining to say what age they now believe him to be, but he is reportedly around 6’1 and had a Facebook account which described him as having been a student at the Islamic Azad University in Abadan, Iran, and showed pictures of him drinking beer and sporting a moustache and heavy stubble.

“I’m ashamed both for the school and the Government for allowing this to happen,” said one parent, who kept his young daughters out of the school until the man was removed.

“They have both failed to protect our children. The teachers should be sacked.”

Hillary Clinton is a 10 year old boy. She wanted to be a marine too:

August 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Hillary Clinton is considering becoming a Methodist minister or lay preacher, according to her pastor.

Bill Shillady, Clinton's spiritual advisor and the author of a forthcoming book of the failed presidential candidate's daily devotionals, told this to The Atlantic.

The Atlantic's August 6 article, "Hillary Wants to Preach," by Emma Green, explores Clinton's apparent dream of being an ordained Methodist minister. The article speculates that Clinton has held back from discussing her faith too much in public recently, and this could be one of the reasons why she lost in 2016. It also notes that Clinton has been mocked or had her sincerity questioned when she speaks about religion.
