    Re: Why Did Senate Republicans Oppose Troop Funding?

    Here's a short list of reason's Republicans CORRECTLY opposed this TREASONOUS appropriations bill:

    In all, Congress added in 1,720 pet projects, including:
    ∙$5 million for a visitors center in San Francisco
    ∙$23 million for indigent health care in Hawaii
    ∙$18 million for the Edward Kennedy Policy Institute in Massachusetts
    ∙$1.6 million to computerize hospital records in Oakland
    ∙$47 million for anti-drug training centers around the country
    ∙$20 million for the World War II Museum in Louisiana
    ∙$3.9 million grant to develop an energy-efficient solar film for buildings
    ∙$800,000 for minority prostate cancer research
    ∙$3.6 million for marijuana eradication in Kentucky
    ∙$2.4 million for handicap access and a sprinkler system at a community club in New York

    ONLY a progressive would think this is even remotely acceptable..but of course BO will not sign it because ..well if he DID... THAT would make him a "Lyin' Sack of Dog Crap"...

    I am not so naive that I believe that the Democratic Party are without their faults. However, their efforts in trying to provide me with affordable health care exceed those of the Republican party.
    It's a NO-BID CONTRACT, for crying out loud!!!!

    You DO understand (Per COB) that your healthcare costs will go up ... RIGHT?


    ONLY Liberal mathematics allow anyone to believe that adding the burden 30 Million "FREE" insurance policies will NOT lower the costs to PRODUCTIVE Americans!

    There's damn good reason the Republicans haven't got on board the socialist bandwagon... THE CONSTITUTION !!!

    If you think the constitution is irrelevant then you probably DO believe in FREE healthcare... the Easter Bunny, and Peter Pan, etc.

    COME ON libs there is no such thing as "free" and the Fed has NO MONEY, and they've already spent ours ... TWICE!

    That is the only one that would even remotely make sense, however it probably already exists or could be quickly developed by the private sector.

    Only if it was also cost efficient.... without government subsidies to make it so.

    Met On Right-of-Way
    The 104 kilowatt solar PV system will consist of nearly 600 solar panels covering 8,000 square feet at the Interstate 5 and 205 interchange. The project will generate 28% of the electricity needed to power the interchange’s lights and signage. Cost for the installation is $1.3 million, with the solar array expected to come online in December 2008.

    State officials caution that the flagship project remains in the early stages. Plans call for private partners and utility companies to use tax credits, grants and other incentives to pay the $20 million price tag, which includes the purchase, installation, operation and maintenance of the panels.
    Debate begins on ODOT plan to install up to 17,000 solar panels on I-205 | Oregon Local News - OregonLive.com

    ☼Will produce 112,000 kWhs annually

    HOW LONG DO SOLAR PANELS LAST
    Performance from a solar panel will vary but in most cases guaranteed power output life expectancy is between 3 and 25 years. This guaranteed life expectancy rating is usually 80% of the published rating of the Solar panel. Of course this will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, and as always, you typically get what you pay for. Watch out for those cheap panels made in Pakichinastan.
    Solar Tutorial | BatteryStuff.com

    Now we have enough info to see if Oregon's solar highway is cost effective.

    The out put is 112,000 KwHs per year (this is assuming clear sunny days.... any one here ever been to Oregon?)

    Figure a life of 10 years.

    Total optimistic out put over 10 years.... 1,120,000 KwHs.

    Cost per KwHr = $17.86

    Only in Libland is this a good idea.
