    You all now talk about looting. That is nothing new. Looting has been going on since the 65' Watts riots when a White California Highway Patrolman beat an unarmed black man during a traffic stop. The people rose up and had of enough of the beatings and unarmed killings of black men in Watts I do not cordone the looting, but you mistreat a group of people long enough they are going to react and not always peacefully. This is nothing new as same thing happened in Detroit, Newark, LA again and now George Floyd. Now that is the truth which a lot of you do not want hear or ignore. The problem is when you never have had a gun put to your head for no reason like I have over 20 times simply for just being black you get angry. This country has never dealt with its past like it should have. Here is a simple question what year did America become great for black people. So, when we hear "make America Great again" it's insulting to a lot of us. Please do not tell me things are better now because Obama was elected. Remember, more whites voted against him both election terms. So, what's the message there..
    Amen. But you won't convince any Trump supporters with your logic. They are convinced that you are a shiftless MF, that systemic racism doesn't exist, that MAGA isn't racist, and everything to the left of unrestricted lynching is socialist.

    What emissions are you concerned about? Which are you measuring?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...xide_emissions

    When measuring carbon dioxide emissions, the United States is much higher with 13.77% of the world-wide total.

    Russia is at 4.77%, and a much bigger population in India is only at 6.62%.

    China, with a population around four times larger than the US, is the leader at 29.34%.

    Truth

    The funny thing about politics on here is people really do not want to hear the truth. I am one who has been consistent on here and always calls out racism. Then when you call it out people do not want to hear the truth.

    You all now talk about looting. That is nothing new. Looting has been going on since the 65' Watts riots when a White California Highway Patrolman beat an unarmed black man during a traffic stop.

    Kneeling is our form of protest that we want change, as a way of saying enough is enough. If you do not like seeing kneeling do not watch the NFL, but last I checked, ratings were down 6% this year which still makes it the highest watched programming by far in the USA.

    Also, I keep hearing some of you all saying this country is moving to socialism. The stock market which Trump always talks about and is a non partisan analytical measurement, clearly does not think so.

    Finally, you want to know what is one of the most purest forms of capitalism in the world. It happens to be music. If you do not like the music, do not listen to it. Now, here is what really is messing up you so called conservatives that say you love capitalism. Hip-Hop is the no 1 downloaded and listened too music in the world. An offshoot of Hip-Hop is Reggaetone and Trap which are all in the studio collaborating together right now as this pandemic is about to end. You know what hip-hop is all about is they know young people want to dance. They do not want to sit around looking at each other having a Budweiser. Hot young chicks want to shake their ass and that is not going to change so either get with the program or get left behind. The train has left the station and it not turning around as life waits for no one. So, next time you say this country is moving to socialism just think of Hip-Hop because that is what the market demands and young chicks love Hip-Hop. Now am I lying.

    Fact, the largest sources of lithium are Australia and South America. There is no impediment to the US buying these raw materials and making their own batteries except there is not leadership to do so. Maybe now that will change.

    The only fraud in the election was the Republican Candidate. If it was so easy to commit fraud why did Democrats not take the Senate and increase the house? Why not take total control?

    What has steel wages got to do with whether an industry is providing a net benefit to the economy? With cheaper steel you can build more and lower cost buildings, infrastructure, vehicles, ships ect. Many of these industries also have high wages until they become uncompetitive because of high input costs caused by tariffs.

    You say on the one hand the Paris accord would cripple industry and on the other that the US is already leading the pack in reducing emissions, did they give you an education in Canada.

    You know its possible to build power lines from the south to the north to deliver all that beautiful solar and wind energy. Its possible to install wind generators off the cost like the UK and Europe.

    How is it that every time Republicans gain control of the country they leave behind an economic mess?
    You are correct that Australia produces the most lithium but China controls almost all of it. In fact they control lithium in several countries. They also control the majority of solar panels.

    Commodities: Top Lithium Production by Country.

    Priscila Barrera. August 20th, 2020.

    1. Australia.

    Mine production: 42,000 MT.

    Kicking off our lithium production by country list is Australia. It produced 42,000 MT of lithium content last year, down significantly from 16,800 MT from the year before. Australia's production increased impressively in 2018 due to two new spodumene operations that ramped up production in 2017, along with five additional spodumene operations that ramped up output in 2018. However, the tough price environment and costs led many to reduce production.

    Australia hosts the Greenbushes lithium asset, which is operated by Talison Lithium, a subsidiary jointly owned by miners Tianqi Lithium (SZSE:002466) and Albemarle (NYSE: ALB). Greenbushes is the longest continuously operating mining area in Western Australia, having been in operation for over 25 years.

    Australia also holds over 2. 7 million MT of identified lithium reserves, according to the US Geological Survey, which puts it just behind Chile. It is worth noting that most of the country's lithium supply is exported to China as spodumene.

    Domestic steel manufacturing is critical in every country for national security. It is equally important to keep jobs in USA. If we let China take over all our manufacturing of steel, cars, clothes, textiles, appliances plus everything else what jobs are going to be here for USA citizens. Work for Twitter or google? China already controls almost all of our pharmaceuticals which is scary. I am sorry but I like to buy Made in USA rather than Made in China. I guess for some cheaper is always better.

    When USA was in the Paris Accord Canada and USA were the only 2 countries to lower their emissions. Trump dropped out because the regulations were to stringent on USA companies. All industries. China and India do not need to cut emissions but can actually increase their emissions by 20% until 2030. After we dropped out USA emissions still went down 9. 2%. Reason for this is USA businesses are responsible and trying to cut emissions with new technology. Even coal industry produces very small emissions today compared to 20 years ago. USA produces about 15% of world emission China and India near 40% between them If USA cuts half by 2030 and China and India increase 20% by 2030 as per Paris Accord we actually go backwards.

    I really think solar will be able to supply possibly 50% of our power needs in the future. I do not like the wind turbines as their life is about 10 years, they are ugly to look at and really aren't economical. Also I like birds and I don't like that windmills kill hundreds of thousands of birds every year and increasing daily.

    Yes some countries have wind mills on their coasts. I am sure every person in USA with ocean front property would like to see 100 windmills in their view. I am sure that would increase their property value. Wouldn't you love to go to Hawaii and surf between the windmills?

    I guess I just have a hard time understanding why democrats think the USA is such a bad country. I think USA is great and I want it to stay that way. I want to support USA business and USA products even if it costs more than China products. I have been to China and Russia and I don't like communism and socialism.

    California leader in wind and solar energy for last 10 years

    I am sure every state wants to be a leader in wind and solar like $6. 2 b.

    Premium Above.

    US Average Price.

    For the 12 months ended May 2020, California's higher electricity prices translated into Residential ratepayers paying $6. 2 billion more than the average ratepayers elsewhere in the US using the same amount of energy. Compared to the lowest rate state (Louisiana), California ratepayers paid an additional $9. 0 billion.

    California Commercial Electricity Price.

    70.8%.

    Above Average for.

    Rest of US.

    California average Commercial Price for the 12 months ended May 2020 was 17.18 cents / kWh, 70.8% higher than the US average of 10.06 cents / kWh for all states other than California. California's commercial prices remained the 3rd highest in the nation.

    California Industrial Electricity Price.

    117.0%.

    Above Average for.

    Rest of US.

    California average Industrial Price for the 12 months ended May 2020 was 13.82 cents / kWh, 117.0% higher than the US average of 6. 37 cents / kWh for all states other than California. California's industrial prices remained the 5th highest in the nation.

    $11.2 b.

    Premium Above.

    US Average Price.

    For the 12 months ended May 2020, California's higher electricity prices translated into Commercial & Industrial ratepayers paying $11.2 billion more than ratepayers elsewhere in the US using the same amount of energy. Compared to the lowest rate states, California businesses paid an additional $14.7 billion.

    Stupid is relying on wind and solar to fly 16 hours to Australia.

    Stupid is not knowing that your electric bills are going up because they are paying for wind and solar power.

    Stupid is not knowing that at most you can only store 72 hours of power with wind and solar.

    Stupid is thinking that there was no fraud in the election.

    Stupid is agreeing with AOC and Bernie on everything.

    GO fact check this.

    You seem a bit out of touch with reality. One advice for you; next time make the self projection part a bit less obvious.

And if anybody has a different view, I just may say something in response if I feel strongly enough about it. Now, it must have been pretty miserable indeed having to act like you really did care about things like diversity and other "liberal" causes while serving on all of those committees that colleges and universities like to stand up. LOL! And for the record, again I'm not a liberal. You and others don't get to define who I am. I'm a left of center moderate on most issues who believes in governing from the center versus pandering to extreme views on either the left or the right. Enjoy some more stuffing!

    Do all democrats make this crap up

    Quote Originally Posted by GDreams  [View Original Post]

    1. Trump has spent the last 4 years grifting to the max. The golf expenses, getting foreign governments to buy up big blocks in his hotel to gain access to him or favourable treatment, trademarks from the Chinese, directing government employees to stay at his hotels, the big tax grab for the wealthy, the trips to the golf courses, the charitable frauds, the tax frauds, the election donation scams. There has never been a bigger snout in the trough.

    2. The energy business has been the recipient of generous tax treatment, land access, bailouts for cleaning up polluted sites, lack of environmental regulations for emissions, such as dust, mercury, methane, sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxides, coal ash disposal causing toxic leaching of heavy metals and arsenic, mountain top removal with minimal rehabilitation and leaving acid mine drainage with toxic metal content, oil sludges from drilling being disposed of in pits, methane leakage from abandoned wells, I could probably go on for a few paragraphs of all the bad things from oil, gas and coal without even mentioning carbon dioxide. The point is if the companies were paying for the true cost to society then all these products would be significantly more costly.

    So what is your objection to clean energy? Is it that wind and solar are now the cheapest sources of electricity? That is the reason that more than 50% of all new power generating installations around the world are now wind and solar and this is accelerating because its clean and cheap! It will replace coal once battery storage cost drops sufficiently to cover the intermittency issue. Another 5 years should see it out. Once electric vehicles become main stream there will be arbitrage opportunities to use the vehicle batteries as grid storage, charging when power is cheap and discharging to the grid when power is expensive. Electric vehicles will improve air quality which will reduce health costs in cities, the use of automation will reduce accidents which will reduce the cost of insurance, repair bills and will reduce road trauma from accidents, reducing health costs. Wow, all this green innovation is really actually good for you, imagine that!

    3. The China and other tariffs are not protecting industry. Many industries that rely on the import of cheap raw and semi processed materials have been hurt. The trade deficit is still increasing with some trade just moving from China to Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Mexico etc. Its not moving to the US. You need to identify industries that can be competitive, nurture them, have the skillsets in place and stable policies. The biggest disincentive for trade is the $US which needs to weaken to improve competitiveness. The greatest stupidity of this trade war is spending nearly the entire revenue collected from the tariffs to bail out the whiny farmers. (Oh sorry you are probably under the delusion that China pays the tariffs rather that the actual payees, the US consumer!

    4. The military is an over bloated waste of money. Since WW2 they have repeatedly failed. Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq. Yes they did win Panama and Grenada! For the amount of money spent over the years in the Middle East the government could have bought every family a Tesla model 3! It doesn't help that the Us is in bed with Saudi Arabia who funds Al Queda, the Taliban and ISIS. Iraq has been given to Iran, Iran beat ISIS not the US. Cut military spending by 70% and use the money on education, health and infrastructure.

    5. You complain about student debt forgiveness when corporate America has been given $500 b a year in tax cuts and a $2 T bailout package in the last year. How about ordinary people getting some help!

    6. There are many leading economies that provide single payer healthcare with supplemental private insurance. They do it for 20 40% of the cost in the US. Its not Obamacare that is the problem it is the corrupt hospital and Insurance systems that buy out the politicians to protect their profit margins. Big Pharma and Big insurance has got you screwed and the best way to fix it is single payer!
    You can't fix stupid. Don't even want to try to reply to fantasy.
