I came across several interesting blogs about air conditioning bills yesterday and added my thoughts on city-data.com.   I actually never knew much about the site but within about 12 hours I got a pop up message on my screen when I opened the site — life-time ban from the City-Data.com site for “advertising”.  I tried to go back and see what I wrote, but the ban prevented me.   So it was another lesson learned….I’ll probably stick with the land of the free– wordpress.com

I’ve only been using wordpress for a short time but have had no hassles and everything works.  The city-data.com site appears to have roving hitler bots that did not like what i wrote.  I am pretty sure that the only link I added was to wordpress.com.   No email, no chance to look at what I did, but found guilty — city-data.com sucks.    So in the spirit of fee enterprise and free speech and using the same approach of city-data of finding me guilty of something — I find city-data.com guilty (of something) and dub them internet fascists.  (of course it could be mistaken identity or a cookie programming glitch but nevertheless I hate being judged without due process)

So let me see if I can remember what I wrote about that got me in trouble.   I commented about Obama’s recent trip to Nevada and Mayor Goodman in the spirit of fun and game politics stating someone had to go out and meet the President and the mayor pretty much gets paid to do that.   This combined with the fact that Governor of Arizona pulled a confrontation on the airport tarmac with Obama shows the political machinery is out there creating an image revolt against Obama.   There is nothing more devious or crafty than a political party trying to win an election except your common breed of attorney–found in every dark corner from Seattle to Miami and San Francisco to New York.

But I do think Obama’s got the green energy thing right (partly).   Wind energy is cost effective and we should do it.   Solar and ethanol is a rip-off right now.  Ethanol has always been a tax payer funded bonus to Archer Daniel Midland and every politician on their payroll.  Ethanol has no pluses but it makes make many snake oil salesman rich.   Look up the history of ADM with bribes and politics and monopoly abuses if you are too young to remember.   ADM is the reason that soda you drink is made from corn and the chicken nugget is 50% corn.  Think of ADM of the company that made artificial in McDonald’s food possible and profitable for both–and of course absolutely terrible for the health of kids.   But read Wikipedia for the bland facts on ADM.

But back to Obama….he did give the air conditioning repair guy a big boost because of credits to fix air leaks around ducts in homes.  It saved homeowners money and kept me working a little more than usual.   We will see how the summer of 2012 goes though.  I have a feeling with the real estate market still a mess.
