It made $577.....are you kidding???!!!
This thing cost $45 million.
It doesn't make enough money to pay back the $11.9 million borrowed by the city of Youngstown. What about all the years of interest on that debt? What about the extra money that Youngstown has had to pump into it all these years to cover it's operating losses? Who's paying for that?
What about the $25 million that Jimbo Traficant borrowed from the Chinese? Who's going to pay that back, and all the interest on that debt??
It's totally absurd to even discuss an "operating surplus" on a colossal waste of this magnitude.

I guess you didn't notice that steivo is not the same as stievo which, of course, is the confusion that was intended.
Hiding behind false identities to add confusion, attempt to discredit the opposition, and smear people are typical tools of the coward who cannot debate openly.

Today, we have reports from the UN that confirm finding Palestinian rockets hidden in a school in Gaza. Even the UN officials, leftist anti-Semitic Islamic apologists that they are, are forced to report that the Palestinians conceal their offensive weapons in their schools.
@Attis - You made the absurd attempt to equate anyone who disagrees with you with Nazis. Since you went there; since you thought it acceptable to raise the specter of the Nazis in this discussion, I will assume that it is acceptable to continue in this vein………….I am not aware that there was ever any evidence that even the Nazis stooped so low as to conceal their rockets in their schools.

Why would the headline NOT be something more descriptive of the actual situation like:
"Palestinians target Israeli civilian population centers with thousands of missiles."
"Israel attempts good faith cease fire, but Palestinians continue missile attacks targeting civilians."
"Israelis use their missiles to shield their civilians, while the Palestinians use their civilians to shield their missiles"

What is not said here: The Ohio Energy Initiative Commission — a limited liability company registered in the state of Delaware — would decide how the money would be spent without help from state lawmakers.
An LLC registered in Delaware will decide how to spend the money without regard to the Ohio Legislature.......WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH THIS??!!!
Can anyone point to a specific example of a solar or wind project in Ohio that can produce enough electricity to pay for itself (return the original investment) by selling electricity at market rates?
Can anyone point to a specific example of a solar or wind project in Ohio whose original investment could NOT have been spent more wisely in other ways.........ways that would have produced more reliable electricity and, at the same time, reduced pollution and CO2 emissions more effectively??

OMG!!! LEBRON IS COMING BACK!!!!!
I cannot imagine how we survived without Him, in our meaningless little existence so far from the shining light of His presence.
My life has meaning again, and I can now die happy and fulfilled, because someone who is really really good at playing a game with a ball is back in NE Ohio.

I've said it before:
As a believer in little “r” republicanism (not to be mistaken for a Republican), I would be very happy to support local government with local taxes for local control of most issues. However, the Democrats who run the local governments here, are also the same people who have cursed us with big government mindless fools like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Schmucky Schumer, Sherrod Brown, and little Timmy Ryan; to pick our pockets and control us from a federal level.
The local Democrats in-charge need to stop supporting these mindless fools (just because they have a "D" after their names), and at least show some independent thought and action towards getting the federal government under control and out of my life; then talk to me about more local taxes.
