Solar Farms; How Do You Fight Them?

Mar 25, 2020 - 5:46 PM - by Hope6
Hope6's Avatar
So We have had a situation that we have been fighting for a couple of years. The people who own the property around ours have made a deal with a solar company to put in a solar farm. 960 acres and it will surround us on 3 sides. we live on a gravel road and there is only one way in and out from our house. It will be like living in the middle of an industrial sight.

I spoke at all the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors meetings. I told them about all the research I... [Read More]

The things some people are doing at he moment are sheer folly.

1. There's the worst hotel chain in Britain, Britannia, which fired staff and put them out of their accommodation. In winter, in Aviemore, in the snow, with no notice.

And the back-peddlers at the... [Read More]

Does God kill?

Mar 21, 2020 - 11:49 AM - by Mickiel
Mickiel's Avatar
I think to a deep biblical student the answer is clear, but to many it would be a shock for them to learn that God most definitely kills. Not only just kills but slaughters humans in groves at times. He has destroyed armies, whole cities, wiped out whole nations and has even destroyed everyone on earth but one family before. And he will kill again.

America is Shutting Down

Saint_'s Avatar
Starting with the school that I teach at! We just got told yesterday evening that the schools will be closed for the next three weeks.

We also were informed that we will not be able to enter our school buildings for the whole next week. Last week, we spent time planning to teach by remote learning, and I'm pretty capable in that area, so I'll be making videos and uploading them to YouTube. Then I'll assign them to the students through our online platform Schoology. The students... [Read More]

Max von Sydow, RIP

spot's Avatar
One of the great film actors who made a difference to the medium. His work with Ingmar Bergman was the extension of film into Nordic, and thereby European, culture.

The fact that he never received an Oscar says a great deal about America. It is laughable that he was never deemed worthy of an award, it devalues the entire concept.

Planning for the next pandemic

Mar 08, 2020 - 3:09 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
This thread dates from early 2020 and assumes we have collectively recognized that our planning for pandemics was catastrophically inadequate.

We got away lightly with Covid-19 because it only had a mortality between 0.1% and 2%. We could have another of those every year from now to eternity and not bat an eyelid, to be honest. That was a pinprick. The only thing we immediately recognized from 2020 is that global terrorism is a made-up fantasy as far as problems are concerned,... [Read More]

A minor rant about overseas deployment

There was a British army colonel on the radio today, discussing PTSD and the recently proposed US/Taliban deal. I was rather struck that he had previously felt the Allied engagement in Afghanistan had been worthwhile because of the lives it had saved. I hope I’ve accurately reflected his comment.

What is the point of all this religious stuff ?

Mar 02, 2020 - 10:24 AM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
I find it very sad that people go to wars and fight over the method of worshipping a 'god' . When you think about it, it is quite immature isn't it ? I suppose that one decent thing to come out of all this religious stuff is the 10 Commandments. These, of course, when adhered to properly by the human race, present a code of conduct which is a good guidance to sociably acceptable inter-country living. Would you not agree with that?

Then if you do agree with that, why... [Read More]

Cold and Flu relief

They say there is no way to lesson the time of these ailments and you can only treat the symptoms while it "runs it's course".

Do you all have any tried and true concoctions that seem to help your symptoms?

I'll start: Mucinex, Sudafed (not the fake, the real stuff you have to sign for and show your ID to the pharmacist, flonase and Nyguil (when you sleep).

Also, it's been a hell of a week

My school system has some pretty strict filters. To authenticate past them, you go to a site that is blocked and enter credentials, after that the web is only moderately filtered for the next 8 hours.

Guess where I go every morning at 7:30 AM? Forumgarden! It's my morning routine. I check out the new threads and browse around for a few minutes before getting to work.

So when and why do you come here?

Medicare For All (UHC)

Feb 18, 2020 - 1:38 AM - by Ahso!
UHC (Universal Health Care) is not 'free health care'. The insurance industry and the media frame it that way, but that's a misrepresentation of facts.

UHC (medicare for all) is everyone sharing the cost burden by raising taxes a little and saving the costs of premiums, deductibles, copays, and mandated penalties by a lot. I see that as a win/win for everyone.

John Oliver offers a good explanation. The video cantains some raw language.
