House #1 A 20 room mansion ( not including 8 bathrooms ) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool ( and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern “snow belt” area. It’s in the South.

House #2 Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every “green” feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet ( 4 bedrooms ) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F. ) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville , Tennessee; it is the abode of the ”environmentalist” Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas ; it is the residence of the President of the United States , George W. Bush.

Stuff to read, and another video

Just click and read:
On rent seeking.

Pretty Pony's Poverty Tour Tanks.

McCain's Hope - basically just start bashing the press. Just crazy enough to work!

Maybe cultural hegemony isn't such a good thing, as liberals become lost in their Smog of Oblivion.

Michael Yon's latest - doing the work the propaganda media refuse to do.
Dr. Sowell asks, is Defeatism Defeated? Not quite yet, but maybe if it becomes about national survival... nah, who am I kidding. To the 'rats and the propaganda media, the enemy will always be other Americans - gun owners, rich people (other than the richest, e.g., Soros, Heinz, Rockefeller), businesses, those eeeeevil rethuglicans, etc.
Tell me: If a political party bases its success on the success of our enermies, why is anyone voting for them?
Besides, al Qaeda is probably just crying wolf again. No need to take them seriously. That would be bad for world peace or something.
The real terrorists are being rounded up, so don't worry. Be happy.
And a video - it's tongue in cheek but there might be something to this:

In The Know: Is Our Wealth Hurting Africa's Feelings?

History of M.E. in two minutes

Neat video. 5,000 years of history in a flash.
