tpeacock 1 week, 5 days ago on Letter - Windmills turning aren’t necessarily generating

A reader doesn't even have to guess when an anti windmill letter/post is in the U-B, the author is 99% of the time the same person. What a load of nonsense, what kind of mechanical mind do you work with. 'windmills cannot remain stopped for very long or their blades will warp, and their shafts will droop, and their bearings will develop flat spots and their hydraulic oil will turn to glop' What a complete load of nonsense to claim windmills are designed any different that say car, motorcycle, heavy and farm equipment, or any other type of engine. A motor not running does not cause the effects pointed out here, otherwise, any and all engines could never sit idle for long periods of time, including lawn mowers as stated in this letter. Allowing spite to cloud judgment is commonplace these days as several entities employ any and all forms on nonsense to fight that which they so obviously disapprove of.

So you're intimating that Democrats don't love this Country? Seems a might haughty of you to opine such a blanket theory. I suppose you believe this Country would do better with a Party that can't even control itself to run the Country? While I am of neither party persuasion, I can certainly see the fallacy behind a one party run Country, how could politics blind anyone into not understanding the dire problems a one party system would bring?

Hopefully, someone with sense will see to it that these things get banned and/or outlawed before our streets get ground up anymore. What limited value studded tires have is far outweighed by the destruction to our streets and highways.

'The Lolo elk herd’s 16,000 animals was once the state’s most valuable, attracting hunters from around the world. As the forest grew after fires in the 1930s, the quality of the elk habitat dropped. By 2010, the elk population had dropped to roughly 2,100.

Seems another misinterpretation of material found on the Internets.

tpeacock 2 months ago on Letter - Voluntary labeling keeps consumers in the dark

You answered a lot of your own dismissive questioning/blaming on the ads for 502. I worked 15 years for a Wholesale Institutional Food Distributor, believe me, I can tell you the relabeling cost hikes that occur. If you notice when purchasing your overpriced organic foods, they are labeled differently, as they have to be to denote there 'special' quality of being organic, and you're only kidding yourself if you don't think it costs the organic faction a lot more to label their products as such. To intimate that changing the labeling on foods bears little to no cost to those in the loop of supplying those products, you show a severe lack of printing/labeling costs. I would suggest dropping the sore loser demeanor, and continue purchasing what you and a select few deem as a higher quality product because of its labeled specialness, pay the higher cost associated with it, let the rest of us who are in great health and shape although we've been eating the so-called non-organic garbage for the past 100 years or better, and leave the producers of said nog's to label as they have as the majority voted.

I would like to know your experience on the matter, I can give you absolute real world facts and experience that pot is not anywhere close to what the so-called experts have told the public over the years, experts whose personal experience is limited to nil.

I did not state that nor was that my point. Having worked at a wide range of pay scales over the years I have plenty of first hand knowledge of making it on minimum wage. There was a time when a married couple could afford to have just one person working, but that went out the window 20 years or more ago. Plain and simple, wages have not increased on an equal basis as have living costs. The last person I worked for that paid me a considerably low wage for the career field I was in found it more important to but himself a BMW than to raise my wage to a pre agreed level. While this is but one example, I see this all the time and though I would never relegate every small business to his sort of practice, the minimum wage in many states is paltry and difficult for anyone to live on. I am a small business owner as of early last year, and though I have no employees as of yet, I know when the time comes that I need to hire someone, I will certainly be able to afford more than even this states minimum. Again, I know there are many different circumstances out there, but this never ending wagging about any increase to minimum wage forcing small business out of business, or forcing layoffs, or not being able to hire new employees is akin to weather forecasting or crystal ball gazing.

Rich Lowry is a great example of a fine education gone bad, and his writings are best served in the bottom of a bird cage.
