If Hillary is making the change, we'd better start counting our change.

Voting for Gary Johnson presents the only real possibility of denying 270 electoral votes to both Clinton and Trump.
I like some of the things Johnson stands for and can tolerate the others. He understand the Constitution and the necessity to severely limit and restrict the power of the federal government.
He is actually someone who could be president without destroying the USA.

@KurtaCan't do it. Gary Johnson

There's nothing "historic" about nominating an exceptionally bad candidate for the presidency. The Republicans just did it, and both parties have been doing it for years.
This year it appears our major party choices for president will be (1) a narcissistic self-seeking leftist liar whose goal is to increase her grasp on power to control people, or (2) a pompous reality star buffoon who is very highly impressed with himself but has nothing to offer but populist platitudes; neither of which has even so much as a nodding acquaintance with the Constitution or any intention of administering a government which complies with or is restrained by it.

@76YtownOh, I have no doubt the school district is making out financially.....but that is only because the State and Federal taxpayers are footing the bill. It's all a big shell game with our tax money, because whatever financial benefit the school district is getting is certainly NOT coming from the value of the electricity produced.You can also believe that Valley Energy Solar is not doing this to be charitable.

System cost is apparently $400,000 (oddly enough, just about the same as the wind turbines), but “There is no cost to the school district.” So, who is paying???
The system is supposed to produce 137,000 kWh annually. Really? Who did the analysis? Based on what? Assuming it does, this is less than $10,000 worth of electricity per year at wholesale rates (as it would be produced and sold onto the grid), and it will be produced in an intermittent and very variable manner. Is it all going to be useful?
A $400,000 investment divided by $10,000 per year is 40 years……..so the system will wear out before it pays off the initial investment based on the numbers provided………and this ignores many unidentified factors and losses.
Did anyone ask what the system would cost and how much electricity it would produce?
Remember the wind turbines? No one asked these questions when they were installed either. Please recall that, even if they had worked as intended, they would have never generated enough electricity to pay back their initial cost.

Obviously, the people criticizing Melania Trump are simply motivated by bigotry, xenophobia, and hatred of immigrants.

@jojuggieClose! The names in my list are names of officers killed by gunfire and or other violent assault, and it only includes the ones I could readily find. The list of all officers shot, injured, and/or all line-of-duty deaths would actually be much larger.Also, this list is just for 2016 so far (more than one a week), and it's only early July.
