You do know where the term bar-be-cue originated don't you? the word was created to describe the cannabalistic roasting of enemies of a certain carribean tribe - Jamaican I think - many moons ago. Don't know how it came to be used to describe meat cooked over an open flame in our modern society though. Funny thing.

Hmmmm?

Depending on my mood. Either A-1 steak sauce. Or McIlhenny Co. famous brand of Tabasco sauce.

Maybe even some Weschester sauce.

Most etymologists believe that the word barbeque ultimately derives from the language (Taíno) of the Arawak people of the Caribbean (Hispanolia - Haiti & D.R.) "barabicu", which translates as "sacred fire pit". Spanish explorers* translated the Taino word as “barbacoa”

* The word "barbecue" is generally thought to have evolved from the word "barbacoa," which first appeared in Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo's 1526 book De La Historia General y Natural de Las Indias. He describes the technique of skewering meat on sticks and then roasting it over a pit dug in the ground.
The writing of Bernardino de Sahaún, who accompanied Hernán Cortés in his conquests of Mexico, uses the word "barbacoa" in references to meats roasted under the ground.
References to barbecue cooking technique are also found in the 1698 memoirs of Père Labat, a French priest who wrote about his travels in the West Indies.

Huh? The people who make this same determination now. The Govt. of course.

You do get to vote. You get to go to the polls and take your pick between corrupt Republican or corrupt Democrat. While there are tremendous differences between the two when it comes to rhetoric and sometimes sources of funding (though most who play the game contribute to both to cover all their bases), when it gets down to taking' care of business (ie: spending your money) there is very little difference. But still, you do get to vote!

As to how the determination is made regarding who is "entitled" and who is not, this is done the same as it always has been: according to the first rule of modern American politics.

"He who promises to rob Peter in order to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul".

Paul is entitled. Peter is screwed.

Ditto!

While the Police, Firemen and Road Crews that are supplied with the best of modern convenience (kids with new toys), supposally for the safety of the public, smash and crash their equipment out of ignorance.

I, who gets to fix ALL this messed up equipment, has to beg, scratch, grobble and steal, for a measly $300 tool so I can fix this stuff.

It's the ones sitting in the big chairs in the tall buildings deciding who gets what just to make them selves look good. That's politics in its raw form.

And then burn 1000’s of gallons of fuel just driving around to look like they are doing something.

Electric cars to save the planet? Depends on where the electricity comes from doesn't it? Most of it comes from coal fired powerstations (around here anyway) so you are still pumping CO2 into the atmosphere. Probably more of it, because of the losses and inefficiencies involved in transmitting electricity from the powerstation into your car batteries.

As far as electric cars go... can the grid support it?

Had a pretty decent blackout a few years back up in the north east...

I've been pushing for hydroelectric power on a giant scale. Can one imagine the power out put from backing up the Grand Canyon.

Here in the PNW (USA) we have the Grand Coulee Dam that supplies most all of the PNW plus parts of Calif. and it's only one river. Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce Welcomes you to the Coulee!

Then there is the Hoover Dam which is at a part of the grand Canyon. That's what keeps Vegas a Reno burning. Bureau of Reclamation: Lower Colorado Region - Hoover Dam

Every five years or so someone reminds us we only have four years left.
In the meantime if you want to beat the high price of fuel... invest in the process.

You can make 8% with your eyes closed making conservative choices and still deliver a 1.00 or better a unit dividend.

My five year average is 14%
