    If the shenanigans of the individuals are discouraged, then the chaos of groups can be prevented. Should have been done at the parental level long before preschool age and continued throughout the formulative years.
    Reminds me of something I read recently, 2 very young boys about the age of 4 decided it was time for them to try their hand at using curse words, the mother asked Tommy what he wanted for breakfast, Aw, H**l mom I think I'll just have a damned bowl of Cheerios. 'SMAK'. Johney what would you like for breakfast? Sh*t Mom! You can bet your A** it won't be none of those damned Cheerios.

    I can hardly wait for 'them' to try making aluminum with wind or solar power.

    "...it comes from the building!"
    Sure it does.

    I am not a fan of Electric Cars for many reasons. Someday, but not now.

    This video is from a documentary created by Michael Moore. I am even LESS a fan of Michael Moore. He is notorious for spinning things to his point of view. He edits clips to distort facts. This clips is from around 2010. It was not GM that said 95% of the electric for EV's come from coal. It was executive of the Lansing Board of Water & Light.

    There is so much miss information spread around it makes it too easy for people to disprove statements made in defense of some cause. Saying that GM said the EV is charged with 95% coal is false. That appears to make the whole video false, and therefore one would assume the EV's are not that bad. We need to give REAL, truthful arguments for bad ideas, not arguments that are so easily refuted.

    I believe this is very good.
