Re: “Occupy Boise Must Temporarily Vacate Lawn, Judge Rules

I would imagine as with all worthwhile public interest groups that "Occupy" would not allow the State of Idaho to expend any funds on the reclamation efforts but would insist on hiring it done themselves. This is a great opportunity for the movement to clearly demonstrate their integrity and rally further support. "Occupy Guys" don't miss out on this give-me chance to revitalize the movement that has accomplished so much and done it with such decorum. Or, “Just Get The Hell Off The Lawn Already!”

Re: “AP: Ron Paul Tops Romney in Per-Delegate Ad Spending

My HAT'S off to you on doing your homework, or is it from a Ron Paul "Speaking Points" list like CAM's was. Move beyond the rhetoric and move to who can defeat Obama. The only one who can accomplish the general election goal of "ABO" (Anybody But Obama) is in the field of candidates right now. The front runner by hundreds of delegate votes is Romney. If everything went by the playbook of a dream team going to the White house, we have a 50/50 chance at best. Unfortunately a Ron Paul ticket and $2.00 will get you a cup of coffee, maybe. The Health Care nightmare that is about to come into effect is going to bankrupt us all if we don't get someone in there to de-fund it quick. Just like Dr. Ron Paul has said repeatedly. I'd say give him a cabinet post and turn him loose. It would be fun to watch.

Re: “AP: Ron Paul Tops Romney in Per-Delegate Ad Spending

Cam,

Thank You for the comments on campaign spending. Being an actual candidate in '04 I spent less than 50 cents per vote and forced a standing Senator to spend over $12 per vote to defeat me in the general election after I won the primary (unopposed). I learned alot, mostly what lost causes do to drag down political momentum. It's time for Romney to pick Santorum as VP and have Dr. Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich do the right thing and step aside. We need to get about the peoples business and take the country back from a desperate president who would engulf us in WW3 to stay in office. Believe It!!

Re: “AP: Ron Paul Tops Romney in Per-Delegate Ad Spending

You have to hand it to Ron Paul supporters. They are the "real deal" in grass roots supporters. My question is "Why do you have to make excuses for the man?" If he was the "THE" guy, wouldn't he be in the lead and not in the rear? I like the guy too but he ain't legit. We need a true leader to step up, ain't seen him yet. Dang it!

Re: “Mega-Loads Expected to Roll Through Moscow This Weekend

OH, wirisingtide,
I have a buddy who fishes that entire area and he is ecstatic over the new pull-outs they made. He had a really hard time finding a big enough place to park overnight. I guess there are fishermen in camping every night in the pull-outs and it used to get crowded. Now with those huge pull-outs that were made you can park a whole bunch of guys in there every night (Not good news for the fish though).
Tough issue for me because I’ve been on the other-side for years and find it really weird being on this side. I don’t know if my green is coming off or is this that one issue that, after extensive research, proved to be the exception for me. I actually went to the test plant in Utah and got to walk through it. I have to admit seeing a guy with his Sierra hat on pulling wrenches on anything involving oil was defining. He said he spent the first year trying to disprove the whole thing and finally worked the emissions steam to be potable water rated.

Re: “Mega-Loads Expected to Roll Through Moscow This Weekend

Hi wirisingtide,
Great web site reference, I did go there and might I suggest visiting the Canadian view of things.
http://energytomorrow.org/issues/energy-se…
They have about the same kind of info but with a lot of facts and examples that offer a broad spectrum of topics on this issue. It isn't pretty until they do the reclamation work. It’s kind of like walking in on a plastic surgery right in the middle. Those surgery photos would be shocking too. They have proven the ground will plant and grow native plants and trees now.
Have you ever been to Nampa Idaho and seen the Sugar beet plant? They have a huge pile of processed dirt and beet waist. For some reason it won’t grow hardly anything at all. Across the Hwy they used it for fill dirt and it doesn’t even grow weeds well. I wonder if it is safe to drink the water that falls on it and goes into the ground wells in the area.
I guess what I’m saying is if we have this problem in our own backyard that doesn’t work and they have one in theirs that does work at growing things, shouldn’t we support what does work and fix what doesn’t?
The real reason is money, after all is said and done. There are billions to be made in conceiving a process that somehow they made work really well in extracting oil from sand and not so much money in sugar beet dirt.

Re: “Mega-Loads Expected to Roll Through Moscow This Weekend

Thanks R,
I thought I would stimulate deeply thought out and informative commentary. The first inclination of ridicule to somehow discredit an original thought should be expected. The earth deserves an even break when it comes to eradicating oil and tar sand deposits instead of drilling in national parks. The test refinery was setup in Utah 25 years ago and was gone over with a fine tooth comb by 15 different environmental research groups and declared a totally green process. It produced nearly zero emissions without the dirty byproducts of the neighboring refineries. The test plant operated for 5 years, completely broken down, moved to the Uinta Basin, and left a clean footprint verified by the team from the superfund site evaluation group. It is the model the Kearl site in Canada is going to use. You know it as the Mega Loads.
