Baghdad Installing 21st Century Solar Powered Street Lighting

Hello Yupette,

My brother just returned from Iraq. He visited me in Arlington and was amazed that 21st Century solar powered street lights are being installed in Baghdad while Arlington's street lighting system is 50 years old and he could not find my house because the street lighting in my neighborhood is so poor.

Where did the Iraqis get the $$$ for the state-of-the-art solar street lights being installed throughout Baghdad? From the brainwashed American Sheeple, of course, via our NeoCon / NeoDem federal government.

This Nation S U C K S. We can't do a f-ing thing for ourselves to make our own lives better, but we are running around the Third World spending Trillions on everyone else.

Why do so many cars get broken into on Arlington's residential streets? Because our street lighting is old, dim, inefficient. Where does the money go that should be spent on new and energy efficient street lighting? On $10 million live theater buildings and $1 million soccer fields.

Sorry, Marena, no can do. We have got to send aid to Pakistan and Haiti. And finish our commitment to Afghanistan. And we have to keep our promises to special interests for live theater and such.

Dominion Resources doesn't operate the street lighting system in Baghdad.

Civic Federation is supposed to take street lighting up in September or October.

What is the big deal about replacing the energy inefficient mercury vapor lamps with high efficiency sodium lamps?

BTW, solar LEW street lights are very expensive and there are issues with the service life of the LEDs.

Civ Fed is a bunch of old geezers. And a few young geezers. I understand the street lighting issue may be postponed until October because of the candidates' Q and A session and the delegates want to be home and asleep by 9 PM.

While you're at teh Civ Fed meeting ssk New Dem Moran and Neo Con Murray why Iraqis and Afghanis get the gold mine while American taxpayers get the shaft.

Oh, I forgot, you have to be a "delegate" to ask questions of elected officials.

Murray is nothing but a Bush-Cheney NeoCon. We heard his campaign drivel before, from Newt 20 years ago.

Iraqis got the gold mine via PMA and New Democrat Jim Moran's other New Democrat contractor friends.

Yupublican Party is binary - goes from Palin to Newt and back again.

I nominate Scotty (Jive Turkey Realtor) McCaffrey's neighborhood in Fairlington as Tobacco Road Arlington. What a dump. Does Scotty even live there anymore, or does he own a weekend retreat in M'burg?

New Democrat - NeoCon 3-step program for the destruction of America:

Export millions of good paying American jobs to the Third World;

Allow massive illegal immigration from the Third World;

Spend trillions fighting wars in the Third World.

How about a thread?

The media are a big part of the problem; maybe the biggest part of the problem. Virtually ignore anyone who is running for public office who can and will make positive changes in favor of Reagan-Bush neocons and Clinton newdems.

The entire education system is also part of the problem. Political diversity begins and ends with a 2-party system. Look at the history and political science curricula of American colleges and universities.

Both political parties drive a political system where there is no enlightened self-interest and where tremendous human and financial resources are spent (often foolishly) remediating the world's problems.

Patrick Murray and "Independent Leadership for Virginia's 8th District"? Independent of whom? ProLife? The Military? The NeoCons? This guy is a poster child for starting wars with Iran and North Korea.

Did you read that Pat Murray's ProLife pals are suing to stop stem cell research?

We're a great nation - #1 in fighting wars and litigation.

Pat Murray's backers don't even live in the 8th District - they're Neo-Cons from the 10th and 11th.

Who pulls the local media's strings? New Dems and NeoCons. Sun Gazette is controlled by NeoCons from Dallas and Leesburg.

In case you haven't figured it out after 30 years, Pro Life is an oxymoron and should be referred to as Pro Death. Can we have a thread, please?
