The Biggest Problem Americans Face - by Robert Ringer

The Biggest Problem Americans Face - by Robert Ringer: The other day, one of my son’s friends, who was home from college for the summer, stopped in to say hello. We chatted briefly, and I asked him if he was still planning on becoming an entrepreneur/businessman after he graduated from school next spring. To my surprise, he said that because of the uncertainties in …



comment:



The biggest problem, says Ringer, is that there are too many on the GOP side that would go commie if that is what it took to be successful.    Remember what Little Jebbie said:  "we should learn from the Dems", he said.  If you are going to be a Dem, then join the bastards.  Otherwise, STFU.



The trouble as I see it, is that people will arm themselves, but do they know what that means?  It doesn't mean that if the Dems pass gun control, that you give them up.  It means as they said during the Texas Revolution "come and take it".



Also, get back to the land.  People are too dependent upon money.  Let the land feed you.  I wish I had come to this understanding at a much younger age.   Chasing money is what is killing this civilization.  They can always control you with money.

Jeb Bush, what a POS

Chaos President?

Here's a guy that won't specify anything of what he claims to be talking about.  He is the fake of the fakes.

He's a real POS as far as I am concerned.  But there are a lot like that.

Why do people keep saying the Russians hacked the DNC's emails?

Nobody has seen the DNC servers because the DNC won't allow it.  Otherwise, it is just the Dems word on it.

Unless they show the damage, then there is no proof of damage.  The Dems could be making it all up.

Trump should veto the bill.


Is Global Warming data fabricated?

Does a wild bear poop in the woods?

As I have written again and again, it is not likely that AGW theory is true.  In fact, AGW theory is probably a syndrome of anti Western initiatives which are meant to tear down Western Civilization.  It has worked pretty well, I'd say.




The "Big Ugly" is on the way

The Big Ugly:  The confrontation between the intransigent DC political class and Team Trump.

The article says that an outsider like Trump had to have time to set up his administration.  It is getting close to the point where he can take them on.  Up till now, he had to rely upon the existing political class of people determined to undermine him.

If all that is right, then the Big Ugly is indeed on its way.  Heh, heh.

What would I like to see?  Fire Mutton- head Mueller, veto the anti- Russia bill, and let the impeach patrol have at it.

They might impeach him, but the GOP would be ruined if they allowed this.

Technology makes you lazy

Now that I have that a/c unit in my bedroom, it would be real easy to quit using my ice.  But that would be lazy.

Yes, the whole point, now isn't it?  Having the luxuries makes it real easy to go back to being lazy.  Just flip the switch, and you've got cold air.

Otherwise, I have to lug fifty pounds of ice to my Coleman, and take fifty pounds of water back to be frozen again.  It is a real pain in the butt.

I guess I could look at it this way:  it is like a job.  So, what is the point?  The point is to get my electricity usage down as low as possible.  The a/c unit in the bedroom is actually not a bad location for it.  This a but a small area to cool, so it doesn't have to work all that hard.  Without the intention of doing so, I may have struck upon a good idea.

Right now, this sun problem looks like the hardest problem to solve.  Water is not that hard compared to this.  The sun makes it hard to keep energy use down.

Because of this simulation, I am learning what it takes to live out there.  But I won't be going out west any time soon.  Maybe not at all.  I'll keep the land in reserve.  I won't be going out there until I get my credit back in good shape.  That could take a few years.

Of course, I will also need some luck with my health.  Stuff happens, you know


United States faces coup attempt? GOP must unite to put it down.

Tribal politics is driving it.  The GOP may not care enough to do anything about it, though.  In fact, I think they may be using it in order to keep people in line.  Who are you going to vote for, Democrats?  Of course, the answer is "no way" you vote for the Dems, but if they don't do anything they promised to do, then why vote for the GOP?

GOP voters could stay home on election day.

Real happy to hear this

Elon Musk wants to go to the moon.

He is not just a Mars guy, after all.

Going to the moon first is a great idea.  The moon is made mostly of oxygen.  If you do nothing else, but mine the oxygen, it will be a big help getting to Mars.

Getting on and off the moon takes a lot less than the Earth.  It just makes a lot of sense to me to go there first.


How hot is it?

Without an a/c, it is hot, real hot.

With some help from my brother, I now have an a/c again.  Saved my donkey, or whatever.

Still fighting the sun

Originally posted, 7.18.17, updated on,

The fight with the sun just got tougher.  The a/c went out yesterday.  Last night was tough.  It got up to 107 degrees inside the trailer yesterday.  It took till midnight for the temperature to drop to 90.  At that point, I figured my fifty pounds of ice could take over, and I could get some sleep.  This part worked well.  But the high temperatures need to come down.  ( no kidding )

The trailer is trapping heat, obviously.  Last night, I came up with a way to cool it down faster.  If you put a box fan in front of the screen door, it will suck in cooler air.  That helps.

It may also help to try to manage this thing better.  The sun goes south during the day, and strikes the bedroom area first.  This gets really hot, then the rest of the trailer follows, as the sun moves back north and west.  At the end of the afternoon, say 4 pm,, the sun will head north of the east west line, and the south end catches a break.  This is when I need to start working on that end of the trailer.  That's because it is the bedroom.

At the end of the day, the north end is getting blasted.  I need to finish my work getting some protection against the sun.

As for the a/c, I will have to suck it up for awhile until I figure out what I need to do about that.  Yeah, the obvious thing is to buy a new a/c.  I'd like to avoid that.



The original post follows:

Been back from Irving for eight weeks now.  Each week on Tuesday, the day of the week that I got back, I drain the black and grey water tanks to the trailer.  Therefore, it is pretty consistent now that I won't use any more than that much water each week.

So, the water part has been easy.  The sun part is tougher.  Since I seem to be struggling a bit with the problem, I decided to start making notes on the sun's movement.

It is the later part of the day that is the real butt kicker.  Starting at about 2 pm, the sun begins to strike the western side of the building, which is where the trailer is situated.  Once that happens, temperatures start to rise quickly inside, unless you want to use a lot of a/c.  At 4 pm, the sun is starting to head back to the northern side of the building.  From four to eight pm, is when it can really get hot.

Since the overhang that this building has seems to offer some shade, why not try that?

This is a problem that I want to solve without spending a lot.  This is over six hours before sundown that is the trouble.  After sundown, things start to cool down.  But not before it gets to about one hundred degrees in there.  Cooling down from that point may take hours.  Not good.

On the other hand, I have the freezer that prepares fifty pounds of ice each night for the bedroom area.  This is working well.

However, the freezer produces some heat, and that makes the living room hot.  If I open some windows, it seems to help, but I think more aggressive action is needed.  It so happens I have a small fan, and I can crack open the door and let the fan blow out some air.  Will try that tonight.  Don't want to have the living room hot because of the freezer.

In short, there seems to be some progress, but for some reason, it is hard to pin down that I actually getting anywhere with this problem.  That's because I use the a/c for several hours, and I want to cut back on that.  Hopefully down to near zero.  The study of the sun may give me some insights on what to do next, if my ideas don't seem to get anywhere.  An overhang may be the ticket.

Still fighting it.
