    None ……None …. !!! Now that is just being intellectually dishonest. That is showing Trump Derangement symptoms.

    We can only imagine how bad things would be had Hillary Clinton won the Presidency.
    The Washington DC swamp would be worse than ever.

    All of the illegal aliens (illegal immigrants) would most likely now be US citizens. There would also now be many more registered Democrat voters.

    We would also have many more US Troops in the Middle East and Africa and most likely have to re-institute the military draft as very few would volunteer for the military under a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

    This may be an enlightening video for many Progressives.

    The most damaging to our nation and our children and grandchildren is # 24. The deregulation of environmental protections will lead to an increase in mental and physical disabilities, massive future clean up costs and much higher health care costs over time. The one reason that the GOP Congress is supporting this clearly unqualified POTUS is because he is giving the fossil fuel industry every opportunity to pass on the long term costs of pollution to the tax payer. The attack on clean air, clean water, pesticide free food, women’s health care, etc. are the long term effects of the Trump/McConnell presidency

    I think Joseph’s comment might be generalized–many of the acclalmed accomplishments, #24 for example, have a dark side.


  7. whungerford says:

    Rynstone, it is hard to imagine how the Washington, D. C. swamp could be worse than it is.


  8. whungerford says:

    Rynstone, can you point to one that you see as a credit to the Trump Administration?


  9. Rynstone says:

    Joe, do you heat your home with solar & wind? How do you get around ? Walk, ride a bicycle and/or a horse?

    Name some regulation that were currently in-place and currently being enforced that the Trumpster rolled back.

    I only see future regulations being rolled back.

    I am all for solar, wind and hydro in addition to new technology natural gas, oil & clean coal (with latest technology scrubbers) and new technology nuclear.

    If we stopped using fossil fuels & nuclear we would lose over 90% of our electricity and over 98 % of transportation

    All of my progressive friends and aqquaintences use far more energy than I do. They talk the talk but do not come close to walking the walk. First class hypocrites./ Perfect big government pretend environmentalist Democrat voters!

    I use passive solar to heat my home when the weather cooperates.

    I burn wood from naturally fallen trees for supplemental heat. I use fuel oil during the day and electricity during the evening when needed. I only use fuel oil and electricity to heat my home to 60º F and do not use any air conditioning. Not because I am worried about pollution, but because I am frugal.

    I grow a large portion of my veggies from June to November and save enough winter squash & garlic to get me thru the winter months.
    I compost all bio-degradable waste. I am not on a polluting public sewer system.

    “Name some regulation that were currently in-place and currently being enforced that the Trumpster rolled back.” Easy:
    Automotive emissions.
    Coal power plant emissions.

    Ryn. If you want to stick to one issue I will be glad to have a discussion. You point out that you use oil and wood for heating. As it happens, so do I. You grow many of your own veggies. So do I.You compost. So do I. So, in our habits, we are quite similar.

    Now, on the issue of fossil fuels vs. renewable energy resources. As I see it, there are two fundamental differences between the 2. First, fossil fuels are limited in availability. All the fossils fuels that have ever been created are already in the ground. Every time a fossil fuel is taken from the earth that fuel is gone forever. So, fossil fuel production is over. No more fossil fuels will ever be created in the lifetime of the human race.

    Renewable resources, on the other hand are,of course, renewable. So, when you and I burn wood (although it is polluting) we are not depleting the resource. The sun shines every day. So, once again, capturing the energy of the sun today does not deplete the resource. the wind blows every day, so the same applies As it does to hydroelectric power generated by moving water (as in the Niagara area, for example).

    A second difference between fossil fuels and non-fossil fuels is this. Fossil fuels are polluting. They put pollutants in the air and/or water. These pollutants are dangerous to human beings. On the other hand, renewable resources of air, wind and water (not wood) do not pollute the environment in any way.

    So, as we look to the future does it not make sense to encourage and invest in the non-polluting technologies as opposed to fossil fuel technologies? The long term costs are certainly much less with non-polluting energy sources since there are no increase health care costs and increased environmental clean up costs. As you probably know, the fossil fuel industry has been heavily subsidized by the government in the form of tax breaks and increased taxpayer costs for environmental damage.

    A final point to consider. You say you are in favor of “clean coal”. You may want to reconsider that. I think if you do some research you will find that “clean coal” is a misnomer. It was a nice name created by the coal industry to hide the real effects of coal production and use as an energy source. It only refers to trying to make coal less polluting than it already is. Even the “clean coal” is far more polluting. For example:

    “Critics note that “clean coal” is a misleading term for any of these techniques. Even a coal power plant that emits fewer pollutants is still a far dirtier way to produce electricity than a natural gas, nuclear, wind or solar plant. In 2014, the Clean Air Task Force estimated that particle pollution from power plants, mainly coal, led to 7,500 premature deaths each year, although that number has been going down over time because of environmental regulations and the retirement of older coal plants in the face of cheap natural gas.”

    When I worked for an electric utility decades ago, we were very aware of ash pollution. The neighbors didn’t like it but had little recourse, the employees didn’t like it so the company installed a car wash in the employee parking lot, the engineers didn’t like it because it fouled the insulators around the plant which needed to be washed regularly. We were less aware of other pollutants which were dispersed from tall chimneys to float over the border to Canada, NY, and New England.


  13. whungerford says:

    Rhynstone (Gary Perry) will be a panelist at Stephen Coleman’s Sept. 12 forum in Elmira Heights. Panelists include Professor Jim Twombly, local NAACP branch President Georgia Verdier, Steuben County Republican Chair Joe Sempolinski, political pundit Gary Perry, political activist Dora Leland, and political pundit Mike Morrongiello.” How Gary got to be a pundit isn’t clear.

    If Ryn is a “pundit” I must be a nuclear physicist. (I am not, by the way).

    Dr. Coleman said: “With critical congressional elections coming up, this is a good time to look at the job Reed has done in Washington.” I have no idea what Gary might say about Tom Reed. Will he defend Tom Reed as “doing exactly what those who support him want him to do,” or criticize him for being insufficiently “conservative.” Since Gary once proposed to run against Tom for the Republican nomination, he might have some differences with him. Perhaps Gary will explain here.
