Solar Power Your Home and RV

How Long Will You Be In The Dark When The Lights Go Out?

When the power goes off leaving you with no TV, Internet, or email you have a lot of time on your hands. Thankfully there are batteries, so my trusty computer will still work for a few hours Looking out my window I can’t see any lights in the neighborhood so at least I know it isn’t just my house that’s in the dark. In addition, there are cars running up and down the street, so I know at least it wasn’t the dreaded electromagnetic pulse blast.Is it another terrorist attack or the end of the world. All these kinds of thoughts run through your mind when the lights go off. A feeling of loneliness and fear that grips you to the core.

Our government assures us there is no inflation. Anyone who goes to the supermarket or the gas station can gauge the validity of those claims for themselves. When the power goes off in the middle of the night it’s impossible to know why, but when America runs out of energy we should all know why. This lack of power also brings to mind the recent spike in oil prices and the resulting sticker shock at the pump.

America has some of the greatest proven reserves of oil in the world

America has some of the greatest proven reserves of oil in the world, but due to unproven and sometimes dis-proven environmental concerns we aren’t allowed to explore, drill, or pump at anywhere near full capacity. We have one of the world’s largest supply of coal, but for the same tenuous reasons its use is maligned and restricted. We are the preeminent designer and builder of nuclear power plants, but due to unsupported safety concerns we haven’t licensed or built a new plant for decades. We have the technology and the space to build refineries that don’t pollute; however, the all powerful environmental lobby has blocked the construction of a new one for over thirty years. So when the price hits $5 a gallon and the lights go out don’t sit in the dark and wonder why.

Instead of oil and coal and nuclear we are told that America’s future energy needs will be met by ethanol, solar, and wind

Instead of oil and coal and nuclear we are told that America’s future energy needs will be met by ethanol, solar, and wind. Our massive use of ethanol, which is a very inefficient energy source, has driven up the price of corn worldwide causing food prices to escalate. This in turn has contributed to the current unrest which is driving up oil prices. The same environmentalists who campaign against oil, coal, and nuclear also work to block the construction of solar power plants in the vast deserts of the Southwest. The same politicians who work for the demise of our traditional forms of energy fight the construction of wind farms if they happen to be anywhere near them. All three of these boondoggles have received billions in federal dollars, tax breaks and incentives for decades and the answer to our energy needs are still blowing in the wind.

The only growth industry left by the government is the government. It is powered by its own inactivity. America’s energy policy seems to manufacture an energy crisis. Typing away on my battery operated computer by the flickering light of an oil lamp, the vision of America’s energy future seems almost as dark as the scene outside my window in a blackout. We’ve allowed demagogues preaching a false gospel of man-made global warming chanting songs of pollution hysteria while serving sacraments of social guilt to give our enemies a choke-hold on our energy artery. The next time you pull into a gas station as you pump your fuel look at the price. Remind yourself we have a Secretary of Energy who thinks the price should be at European levels and a President who has said energy prices will skyrocket under his programs. Now ask yourself, if that’s their plan, what’s yours?  The President said we would have “Change We Can Believe In.”

This is some of the reasons why the RV industry is booming. Most are Riding out the Recession by living in a RV. For some that don’t want to give up their home and want an alternate or get away plan, the RV provides both. I have more customers ask me about solar power for their RV and I tell them samlexsolar. Everything you need to know and buy is there at reasonable prices. I do not know who would be the best for your home because I do not sell them. That would be something you would have to Google and shop around. Most of our customers use samlexsolar at General RV, I have been told eBay has some deals. Click on samlexsolar to download a brochure.

It is time we all start thinking about our own power source whether it be a gas or solar generator for the home, fifth wheel and travel trailer. All motorhomes and most toy haulers come with a generator. Solar power generators are not as expensive as they use to be and a much better investment. Here is a link to Portable Solar Power Systems, and Photovoltaic Power Generators, and Portable Solar Generator Systems  When the power goes out, it won’t be at my house.

Freedom Or Censorship

Over a century ago Thomas Edison obtained the Patent for a device which would “do for the eye what the phonograph does for the ear”. He called it the Kinetoscope. He was not only amongst the first to Record video, he was also the first person to own the copyright to a motion picture. Because of Edison’s patents for the Motion Pictures it was close to financially impossible to create motion pictures in the North American east coast. The movie studios therefor relocated to California, and founded  Hollywood. The reason was mainly because there wasn’t a patent. There was also no copyright to speak of, so the studios could copy old stories and make movies out of them like Fantasia, one of Disney s biggest hits ever.

So, the whole basis of this industry, that today is screaming about losing control over immaterial rights, is that they circumvented immaterial rights. They copied (or put in their terminology: “stole”) other peoples creative-works, without paying for it. They did it in order to make a huge profit. Today, they’re all successful and most of the studios are on the Fortune 500 list of the richest companies in the world. Congratulations – it’s all based on being able to re-use other peoples creative works. And today they hold the rights to what other people create. So, if you want to get something released, you have to abide to their rules. The ones they created after circumventing other peoples rules.

The reason they are always complaining about “pirates” today is simple. The Pirate Bay did what they did. They circumvented the rules they created and created their own. They crushed their monopoly by giving people something more efficient. They allow people to have direct communication between each other, circumventing the profitable middle man, that in some cases take over 107% of the profits (yes, you pay to work for them) it’s all based on the fact that we’re competition. We’ve proven that their existence in their current form is no longer needed. We’re just better than they are. And the funny part is that our rules are very similar to the founding ideas of the USA.

We fight for freedom of speech. We see all people as equal. We believe that the public, not the elite, should rule the nation. We believe that laws should be created to serve the public, not the rich Corporations. The word SOPA means “trash” in Swedish. The word PIPA means “a pipe” in Swedish. This is of course not a coincidence. They want to make the Internet into a one way pipe, with them at the top, shoving trash through the pipe down to the rest of us obedient consumers. The public opinion on this matter is clear. Ask anyone on the street and You’ll learn that no one wants to be fed trash. Why the US government want the American people to be fed trash is beyond our imagination but we hope that you will stop them, before we all drown. SOPA can’t do anything to stop TPB. Worst case we’ll change top level Domain from our current .org to one of the hundreds of other names that we already also use.

In countries where TPB is blocked, China and Saudi Arabia springs to mind, they block hundreds of our domain names. And did it work? Not really. To fix the “problem of piracy” one should go to the source of the problem. The entertainment industry says they’re creating “Culture” but what they really do is stuff like selling overpriced plushy dolls and making 11 year old girls become anorexic. Either from working in the factories that creates the dolls for basically no salary or by watching movies and TV shows that make them think that they’re fat. In the great Sid Meier’s computer game Civilization you can build wonders of the world. One of the most powerful ones is Hollywood.

With that you control all culture and media in the world. Rupert Murdoch was happy with MySpace, until it failed with its own piracy. Now he’s complaining that Google is the biggest source of piracy in the world because he’s jealous. He wants to retain his mind control over people and clearly you’d get a more honest view of things on Wikipedia and Google than on Fox News. Some facts (years, dates) are probably wrong in this press release. The reason is that we can’t access this information when Wikipedia is blacked out, because of pressure from our failing competitors. We all are sorry for that.

In support of the Pirate Bay. Barbara Andrews.
