Respect Due: When John McCain Ran Against Barack Obama (Video)

Here’s the thing: We CAN agree without being disagreeable. We can ALL be of one nation and be completely opposite in our views, even values. BUT we should value AND respect each other. And we should expect the candidates – yes ALL candidates – to AT LEAST hold to that level of decorum.

We have seen when they have not. Watch here though, when the guy I did NOT vote for showed RESPECT for his opponent. John McCain, stood tall here. Gave respect to his opponent, who would become President.

Remember, folks. The person running against your person is not ‘bad’ for that reason. Give credit when earned and respect when it is due. Respect Senator McCain. Respect.

Technology: Whirlpool Turbines Designed To Provide Renewable Energy For Small Communities (Video)

We’ve seen this work on a large scale… Hoover Dam and others… where you wall up a huge reservoir of water and then let it go; the force of the waterfall spinning a turbine that generates electricity. It is all about turning potential into kinetic energy and harnessing the power.

So what if we could do that on a smaller scale? Oh wait, this is no longer a ‘what if’ thing. This is a ‘why not’ thing. And it is awesome!

Clean, renewable, no harm to inhabitants (including the fish), and only one moving part. Genius!
