Re: Republicans Behaving Badly

So Rep Smith is equating rejection of "hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity" with opposition to the Republican Party? Good to know.

Re: Hijack this thread

It takes a fair amount of lung capacity to play a tuba or sousaphone, but not as much as you might think. What's more important is buzzing your lips in the mouthpiece at the right frequency to get the horn to resonate at the pitch you want. Playing a flute probably takes as much air as a tuba, if no...

Re: H.R.6201 - Families First Coronavirus Response Act / Emergency Stimulus CARES Act / Defense Production Act

I don't think it needs to be paid back. Section 2201 of the CARES Act (PL 116-136) provides that a refundable credit in the amount of $1,200 is allowed against 2020 taxes for any eligible individual. An eligible individual is defined as any individual that is not a nonresident alien, is not claimed ...

It appears from the Plum Book that Fauci is a career federal employee, not a political appointee. As such it's not so easy to fire him. Of course Trump can have him reassigned, transferred to someplace like Minot ND, or otherwise "encourage" him to retire.

Re: Residential Solar

The return on investment on my solar project is pretty good; we have the benefit of net metering, and our electric rates are pretty high, thanks in part to Duke Energy billing rate payers about $3 Billion for repairs to a nuclear plant that they decided to abandon.

Zeke, you are quite correct. We have a natural gas furnace and water heater. The furnace requires electricity to function, but we seldom need it, especially during hurricane season. The gas water heater needs no electric, and the ability to take hot showers during that week long power outage was a g...

I recently installed a grid-tied rooftop solar system with no battery bank. When I talked to the contractor about the possibility of adding batteries they told me I'd be better off getting a generator.

I actually played in a Tuba Christmas ensemble almost as large as the one you posted (600 or so), directed by Harvey Phillips at Disney World in about 1994, interesting experience, makes one appreciate the value of a good percussion section.
