    No chance, I don't want to be spied on. I hide Cinnibons from my wife and heat them in the microwave when she's gone. She'll have all my secrets. My occasional hall pass to go out with the boys will be revoked!!


    In point of fact, she knows anyway because I'm on a sugar high when she gets home...I cover Cinnibons in real butter...mmmmm

    Is everything
    Trump's plan to sabotage clean energy is off to a great start..........

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Solar company puts hold on $20M US investment following new tariff

    U.S.-based solar energy company SunPower announced it's putting a hold on a $20 million plan to expand factories and create hundreds of new jobs in the U.S. until it can guarantee an exclusion from the new federal solar technology tariff, according to Reuters.

    SunPower's decision to halt its growth in California and Texas follows President Trump's announcement Monday that a 30 percent tariff would be placed on all imported solar technologies.

    The administration said the decision would protect American manufacturing jobs but some solar companies, like SunPower, argued that it will hurt their bottom line and result in fewer jobs in the industry.

    The tariff was seen as a major blow for America's $28 billion solar industry, which gets about 80 percent of its solar panel products from imports.

    Good thing they don’t need new washing machines. That bill would be ridiculous if that was the case.

    Do the math.... Feel free to check mine, I'm not as sharp as I once was...

    With a standard home fridge about 15 cu/ft and let's say $25 hundy ea, that's $160 cu/ft. Divide $24M cost by the 70 cu/ft required for the aircraft and you, my friends, will pay a measly $34,000 cu/ft which would entitle you to a home fridge for just north of $500,000. What a country!!

    Sounds like at least one industry is not losing jobs.



    Can @puckhead name it?
