    I guess you haven't been paying attention to the airwaves lately -
    lots of hot air there.

    From past history, it's going to get a lot "hotter" soon. You'll think
    Death Valley is a cool place by comparison.

    Some of us "USAn" people are not so ignorant as you think.
    Not all of us agree with what our government does.

    We constantly manipulate other countries to suit our needs or wishes. We
    support the rebels vs the established government if that suits us. IMO,
    this is why many countries (and in the middle east) seem to hate the US.
    We want the oil access.

    In Vietnam, it was all about preventing the spread of communism. Way too
    many people died on both sides, then we withdrew, and it all happened
    anyway.

    As I said before, we do carry a big stick but we don't seem to speak softly
    lately. The USA is a bully, using our military might to support our needs.
    And we wonder why others hate us so much.

    As far as the 9/11 thing, I disagree that we should hold memorials each
    year. That's just fueling the terrorist people each year, imo. I don't agree
    with terrorism attacks but that's the only way they can fight us....by "hit
    and run" attacks. They aren't stupid and they know they can't go face to
    face with the US military. The terrorist attacks are their only way to fight
    us.

    Credit to them: they really scored on 9/11. They attacked the mainland US.
    Not only did they bring down both World Trade Center towers, but they
    actually made a big hit on the Pentagon, the US military headquarters.
    Doesn't get any better victory for a small group than that.

    I can't help but think that every 9/11 since, while we are having our
    memorial ceremonies, the current terrorists are cheering their asses off and
    yelling, "Yeah! We got 'em good that year." This annual event probably
    even fuels their resolve to strike again.

    I speak for me, and no others in this country. Just my opinion.

    That ranks up there with putting fans on the backs of sail boats to
    provide wind for the sails, something that I thought would be a good
    idea until I learned a little more about the physics and work. Whatever
    energy you are gong to harness from a wind driven generator will come
    from the extra work it takes to propel the car forward.

    Some of the newer green cars are making use of kinetic energy to be
    converted to potential (battery power). It takes energy to propel a car
    forward. It also takes energy to stop a moving vehicle. Brakes operate
    on friction, converting kinetic energy to heat energy. Some of the
    hybrids have developed means of more efficiently converting that kinetic
    energy into another form of (potential) energy. You use the engine to
    get your car moving and to go uphill, and then when you are slowing down
    or descending, it uses that kinetic energy to generate electricity to
    recharge the battery.

    Well said. Not sure about the memorial ceremonies, though. Not holding
    them for the reasons you mentioned, seems to make the terrorists more
    important than the victims and their families/friends.

    I am pretty sure lots of folks have been chasing the idea of perpetual
    motion machines for a really long time. Your idea squarely fits in that
    category since "getting something started and have it keep going with no
    additional energy use" is by definition perpetual motion.

    If you don't count wind as energy, then you're part of the problem -
    not the solution.

    Most of us disagree. Many of us have the sense to understand theat were
    we in charge we'd do even worse.

    And yet the expansion of socialism stoped not long afterwards. The
    Soviet Union attacked one more place and lost big in Afghanistan. We
    may have troops there but we know better than to try to be in charge.

    And yet how many would be worse off without? Would Austria still be a
    part of the Soviet bloc?

    Yet they lost two countries and put themselves on the path to personal
    extinction.

    Not necessarily. Suppose the Anti-Special Interest party won a
    majority in both houses. The first order of business would be wall
    themselves off from the river of money. That would make for a more
    responsive, forward-looking government.

    On the other hand, pigs might start flying next week....

    yes, especially when you consider the biggest special interest group is the
    47% that pay no income taxes but want all the "free" stuff.
