What do you mean THEY cut the power? How can they cut the power, man?

1 They don't "cut the power". If you just open a breaker at one location power will flow in through another feed. It actually takes a lot of coordination to kill power to a specific area except small areas at the end of a line.

Either that or a hurricane.

3 Posted this in the ONT, its worth a read folks:

I see that the last House election (NY-1) still open is now being called for voter fraud. Fox has now documented Democrat fraud. One wonders why the department of elections can never find these things?

It's all about getting out number of votes now not voting legally. Our are is heavily influenced by outastate collage kids that are now allowed to vote leftard and vote often here giving the biggest county to leftards all the time.

Rural and local control means nothing anymore.

Our government officials tell us that Assange's act somehow poses a threat to our national security by undermining America's foreign policy. One may as well ask: What foreign policy?

What foreign policy? That's what I said. A total jinx.

16 Well what have we learned from the leaks about this admin?

We learned he traded the missile shield for help with an Iran which the Russians reneged on. IOW, we stabbed our friends in the back for a pack of wishful thinking and a mess of pottage.

We learned that while he was bowing to the Saudi king he was too stupid to understand the difference between public rhetoric and private concerns in the ME.

Basically we have learned that Obama is the stupidest President to occupy the WH since teh Jimmeh and that he is well on the way to doing almost irreparable harm to the country both financially and militarily.

Any Republican who votes to ratify this upcoming missile treaty with Russia needs to be primaried out in the next election and banned from the Party for life.

20 Big question of the day today. Will Republicans get to speak at the "bipartisan" tax summit today?

And even if they do, will it mean anything?????

Hahahahaha, I know, rhetorical question.

21 7 Hey Moki...how's it going? Posted by: CanaDave Hey CDave! Sorry for the delay, I had to take my kids to school. We've have a really rough patch for the last month-daughter was in the hospital, and is still under treatment, but is doing better. Her immune system just shut down, and it appears to be related to her kidney disease as a child. Mercy, that poor kid has been through it. We are beginning to bounce back now, and definitely looking forward to Christmas. How are you doing? Has cooler weather helped?

24 "Smart Grids" - that's the real reason, so the smart guys who run the smart grid can sit in their smart control rooms and cut the power to all the "smart asses" who oppose Smart Grids - or any other liberal BS.

25   OT:  Just saw the news on Instapundit, the writer John Steakley ("Armor" and "Vampires") passed away yesterday in Texas.  Talk about a world-class talent.  I had heard that he was writing again, and since he was only 59, figured he would have something published fairly soon.  Sorry to see him go, wish more sci-fi writers would emulate his style.  Armor still has the best opening quote I've ever read - You are what you do, when it counts.   Godspeed John, thanks for the words.

27 I am in the process of helping my daughter get a student visa for Belgium. Interestingly, she has to go through the application process in the district that is includes the state on her drivers license. NOT the state where she attends college. Perhaps that is something the US needs to adopt?

30 The Cult of the Perpetually Outraged Light-Fearing Insects


"I honestly believe without the FBI involved, none of this would have ever happened," one of the young men said.

[snip]

A family friend, Lewis & Clark Law School student Saba Ahmed, said she knew many facts in the case not yet made public, and she blasted the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice. She blamed the government for inciting violence, pointing out that the mosque that Mohamed is said to have attended in Corvallis was torched on Saturday in possible retaliation.

"This is very irresponsible behavior because now the Muslim community is the one suffering the consequences," she said. "And we will take very serious action -- politically and legally -- against the government for this."

Sorry about my own delay...went and had a snooze

Sorry to hear about the hospital...that totally sucks...at least she'll be home for Christmas. 

I'm generally better off in winter so I've been pretty good...we're getting a lot of hot, cold, hot, cold here which gives me lots of headaches though.

32 Brian Aitken's New Jersey social worker mother made his day's depression 7 years long in prison.

Goes to show the responsibilities required of gun ownership. Being from New Jersey, Aitken couldn't even plead ignorance of the law there, as if that ignorance would make any excuse.

Own or carry a gun bought legally? Know and abide gun laws per state to visit or live.

Then again, Aitken made easy pickings for the prosecution's heyday in court.

Either that or a hurricane.

Tornadoes are effective at slicing power lines. It's rather awesome to watch transformers blow due to weather induced overloads.

At night, that's pretty much the  only way to optically track a tornado. Follow the exploding transformers.

What? You expected the pampered fatcats in the Senate to rid themselves of their natural right to piss away our money?

Apparently, it will take Major Ugliness to ever force common sense and decency on Congress. Even the new members, the ones who campaigned on all that self-righteous "the people have spoken" shit, cave in like wet noodles when suddenly offered a spot for their grubby hands on the national checkbook.

If this wasn't hurting everyone, I'd say the people who elected pathetic losers like Moocowski deserve what the asked for, which is an ever-faster trip down the road to financial collapse.

And no, I don't expect the next Congress to behave differently. They'll have all sorts of high-minded excuses, but the true, basic fact of the matter is that corruption affects every one of those weak-minded fools who feel their "place" is a spot in politics, history's greatest welfare scheme.

43 Almost all of those are hardcore RINOs, I don't know about some of the others.

In any case the BS FDA power grab bill will have much worse impact. The ban on earmarks can be regurgitated in the 2011 congress. The FDA thing will have to be repealed which will be much damn tougher.

I have no idea why they tried to ram it through now, other than they wanted it to go down in flames. Much like the current DOJ not defending laws they don't like, the Republicans in the Senate really do not want to get rid of earmarks.

Posted by: Vic at November 30, 2010 06:29 AM (e4sSD)

44 BTW, the House can get rid of earmarks regardless of what the Senate does.
