— Ace Some actually thought, given his enviro-rhetoric and the soaring costs of gas, he might back down.
He's all for alterative fuel sources except when he might possibly see a glint of a windmill while on his yacht. Then it's just a horror.
I've been told you cannot see the windmills, or the land on which they will be built, at all from his Hyannisport villain's lair. You can't even see them; they're over the horizon. You can only see them while far into the water.
And for Ted Kennedy, that's just too much of a sacrifice.

But he did change his position on offshore drillin'.

Walter Cronkite has a place near there too and was on the record a while back opposing the project, but at least he admitted he was a hypocritical sack.
Kennedy will never have any shame.

Can anyone identify the cute little dude in the blue hat? Could it be Mike?

But while everyone was clucking at the Kennedy hypocrisy, few noticed that Cape Wind had a much more dangerous opponent: Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska).
What a cop out.

Sorry, Ace. I don't know who told you these things won't be visible from land but there are to be 130 towers, each taller than the Statue of Liberty between Cape Cod, Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard. You'll be able to see these babies for miles.

This has been around for quite some time.
Maybe a better news source??
And, by the way...damn near everybody, everywhere...doesn't want them near their homes.
Do some research before you jump on the trash Kennedy bandwagon.
Posted by: Mike at April 27, 2006 09:20 AM (leJWb)
Those things are huge.

So, how do I go about getting one of this wind dealies put up right outside my bedroom window during springtime at 4am on a Saturday when Chirpy-Mc-Sqwauk-Sqwauk won't shut the hell up?

I am currently engaged in a battle against birds in my backyard. We have a bird feeder up, but the little bastards would rather eat the grass seed I planted nearby.
They've mostly stopped, now that I've emptied an entire container of red pepper flakes onto the area I seeded.

At least the public could see what its ultimately paying for then. Better than those dollars that mysteriously disapear down some black hole never to be seen again.

You ask: "So which is it Mike? Are you for or against renewable energy sources?"
Of course I am, but the thread relates to Kennedy not wanting the wind turbines near his house...as if it's some kind of amazing fact that a Democrat might not want them nearby.
If you took some time to read, instead of jerking off with your mouth, you'd know that this has been and will be a controversy for quite some time. Some people think they're ugly, some thing they're inefficient, some think they make too much noise.
Regardless...if you think it's only Ted and the Democrats who are up in arms...YOU'VE GOT YOUR HEAD UP YOUR RIGHT WING ASS.
Posted by: Mike at April 27, 2006 12:59 PM (leJWb)
Jerk off with your mouth? Please post a video of how you do that because if I could do that I wouldn't have to waste my time reading your inane rants. I'd be busy, if you know what I mean. How do you do it, Michelle? No really. HOW?
But seriously. I don't think the Nantucket windfarm is a good idea either, but it just goes to show you that all liberals are the same. They claim to be for alternative energy, but they don't want to put up with the ugliness of reality. They also claim to be for people, but they don't much like them either, as a species.
As a former resident of Cape Cod and a frequent boater in Nantucket Sound, I love that area. But it's one of those reap what you sow things. Liberal Ole Mass wants everybody else to put up with eyesores for the common good, but golly, don't fuck with where WE live. Like, it's OK to bespoil the environment in the Middle East, Venezuela, etc. so I can drive to the Dunkin' Donuts, but don't do any drilling in my neck of the woods.
You are just a typical liberal hypocrite.
But I anxiously await your instructive video just the same.

The water off Hyannisport is where Kennedy's dump their dates when the night is done.
It's like a nesting area.

Just like when they lecture us about suvs, conserving energy, etc. And ignore their 7 suvs, 9 mansions, private jets, etc.
Did you see the "big story" yesterday about the Repub. Congressman who now supports global warming because he 'personally' went to the South Pole? (I'm too drunk to go looking for a link...)
I'll bet my entire lifestyle contributes less towards global warming in the next 5 years than his one trip did...

Has anyone sent Teddy a Manssiere?
I'd say Teddy is more in line for a "Bro". Those are some huge melons he's got there.
You took the words right out of my mouth... )

Let me guess -- it was an all paid free trip courtesy of an interest group. Or, was it courtesy of the American taxpayer?

Typical, NIMBY attitude of the left. Everyone should be willing to sacrifice except them. And when they do face a minimal intrusion on their perfect little dream-world, they screech like Mike at a Backstreet Boys concert.
Plus, the arguement that we should find alternative solutions to these "eye-sores" is typical of these cry-babies as well. Let's not solve today's problems with today's technology, while we continue to find better solutions for tomorrow. Let's do nothing at all, until the absolute perfect solution (in their minds, anyway) is available. Meanwhile, they can complain about how nothing is getting done at all, mainly due to these same malcontents' whining and complaining.
What's to stop these windmills from being dismantled once an alternative solution is found?

Don't waste any more of those brain cells, dude...you only have so many.
Try reading more...and talking less.

No comment about what I said, you lazy drunk? Can't address your own hypocrisy or that of your heroes, so you, once again, rely on simple, repetitive ad hominem attacks.
You are beneath contempt. But please, don't let that stop you from continuing to confirm my opinion of you and your ideological brothers and sisters.
Now go back to begging for blow jobs, you pathetic cumstain. I can only imagine how sorry your father is for not pulling out of the whore who eventually shit you from her diseased twat when he had the chance.

I just don't see where they feel they can unilaterally speak for the whole country or state. For example, drilling in Anwar. Most of America supports it but it's blocked the houses. More of they think they know what's best for us. Go BIG BROTHER!
