HDR 199: Blowing In The Wind??


ALOHA, ALL!!  Ain’t this just swell:  wind farms in the UK were paid a ton of money to not produce.  Yep, that’s right!  But it gets even more bizarre – looks like the wind farms were asked to stop producing because of high winds.  Not joking.  There was a hurricane in the area and apparently high winds might have caused the system to become overloaded.  So let’s see….wind energy produced by those ugly space creature looking things is supposedly good, but we don’t want too much of it.  Sure sounds high maintenance and stupid to me.  I guess the only consolation here is that it proves there are eco-doofusses in other countries, not just the U.S.  Wind farm paid £1.2 million to produce no electricity – Common American Journal  BTW – hubby and I drove by a windmill farm on the North Shore of Oahu the other day.  It was a typically breezy day, but not one fan was moving.  Nada.  Zero.  Zilch.  I sarcastically suggested they should install solar panels on the windmills so they’d start moving.  Maybe more power could be produced by this windmill:

Nike Air Windmill

But Did You Hear About All The New Jobs??  230,000 Employees | Green House Gas | Clean Air Act | The Daily Caller  “The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.”  So you see?  New jobs after all….that WE pay for with our taxes!!!!!!!

More Hot Air.  Obama raising with Missouri stimulus beneficiary – Alexander Burns – POLITICO.com  “President Barack Obama will raise money in early October with a Missouri businessman whose company benefited from a $107 million federal tax credit to develop a wind power facility in his state.”

The Chicago Way.  Chicago: Union Members Collect Millions in Tax $$ With Sweetheart Pension Deal  “Now this is the sort of corruption we are used to seeing in Illinois, eh? This week the Chicago Tribune and WGN TV has found up to 23 retired union operatives that are collecting millions in taxpayer dollars because they had pals in government tweak the state’s pensions laws to favor them.”  Ah yes….and who else is from Chicago?????

Bubba Trying to Re-Write History.  Bill Clinton, Home Wrecker – Investors.com  “He’s the one who originally pushed them to make those really dumb loans. And then he baited Wall Street to game the perverse system he created. Nobody put the American Dream of owning — and keeping — a home “under assault” more than he did.”

ICYMI:  Census: US poverty rate swells to nearly 1 in 6 – Yahoo! News  “The ranks of America’s poor swelled to almost 1 in 6 people last year, reaching a new high as long-term unemployment left millions of Americans struggling and out of work. The number of uninsured edged up to 49.9 million, the biggest in more than two decades.”  Hope & Change.

ROFL!!!!  Watching Attack Watch . . . Do Nothing for the Past Nine Days. – By Jim Geraghty – The Campaign Spot – National Review Online  “The creators and managers of the Obama campaign web site “ATTACK WATCH” have not Tweeted since September 14, and the last “Attack File” was posted September 12. Perhaps they realized that they couldn’t top themselves after making Mark Steyn look sinister and demonic.”

The Constitution Is A Threat to a Multi-Cultural Center?  Black Panther Threatens Conservative for Passing Out Constitutions – Common American Journal  “Are students that promote the black panther ideology and the Office of Diversity in league together at the University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD)? It would would appear so in the video [at the link]. The events took place last week as one young man, Phil Cleary, handed out pocket Constitutions on campus in honor of Constitution Day. He had a table with literature promoting Youth for Western Civilization, a group dedicated to traditional values and western civilization, and engaged in students and faculty passing by. Then, the leftists showed up to heckle.”

Looks like the government is still on schedule to run out of money on Friday – stay tuned for more shenanigans and hot air.

Final Thought:  “A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache.” Catherine the Great

    The truth about Gardasil and Rick Perry

    One of the most satisfying things happening right now in USA politics is that presidential candidate Rick Perry may very well have his candidacy destroyed by the haunting fact that he unlawfully mandated a deadly HPV vaccine be injected into millions of adolescent girls in Texas.

    If this destroys his chances at becoming President, then I say justice wins the day! Here’s more detail on why Gardasil is so dangerous and why Rick Perry is such an evil drug pusher for trying to force this deadly chemical onto defenseless adolescent girls:

      Wow, MikeHawaii! This site makes it sound like the “Evil Demon Rick Perry” purposely set out to “threaten the health of millions.” Yeah….I’m sure that’s what was going through his mind – he wanted to purposely harm young girls with his “failed plot.” (Gotta love the sensationalism and half-truths in this reporting.) I also linked to the SaneVax site quoted in that “unbiased” report to see what it was all about. It’s a group of people claiming to “promote Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. We believe in science-based medicine. ” Funny thing….I didn’t see one scientist or physician listed in their “Who We Are” section. But there sure were a lot of people promoting “natural” remedies. As I commented in a previous answer to you, the natural industry does indeed have an agenda. In fact, I found a huge lie on their Media Packet page: “When detected, HPV infection is easily managed and rarely proceeds to cancer.” Easily managed? Ask those who are infected and need to deal with it their entire lives. Are herbs & remedies effective at managing HPV? Maybe, but since they aren’t regulated we really have no data now, do we? In addition, those affected with HPV and periodontitis are much more likely to develop oral cancer (look it up – unlike the “facts” quoted on SaneVax there is research to show this.) Sure, it’s not cervical cancer (which is the only type of cancer SaneVax focuses on…purposely?) but oral cancer isn’t a walk in the park. So enough with the natural hocus-pocus and incessant droning about Perry’s Gardisil blunder. He admitted it was a mistake, but it wasn’t the sinister motive you’ve made it out to be. Also interesting that you’re thrilled this may “destroy his chances” of becoming POTUS. Believe me, no way does it open the door for Ron “The Oblivious” Paul. He destroyed his chances when he first opened his mouth about national defense. (BTW, this is the last posting about the Gardisil issue and Ron Paul I’m posting from you, so no more long-winded comments.)
