"too tired to rant" procedes to biggest rant i can see in comments

I'm not really into politics. I know that half of the people (no matter what side) just spew bullshit out of their mouths about the opposite side because they're fucking retards who only vote for their side without looking at everything.
I mean if I said to a republican during an election that the democrat would completely fix every problem they have while the republican would destroy everything, I bet they would still vote republican. And vise versa.
But, your first comment about the poor and maintaining votes: if there are that many poor people that we have to make decisions to please them in order to change the outcome of the election, then don't you think that's an actual problem? That there are that many poor people?

Hey rantman. I'm from Germany. We have health insurance, even those who have no job are fully insured. We have welfare. Got no job? Go to some department, fill out a form, 350 € each month + your rent covered + health insurance + support to find a job for several 1000 € if you want the help. We don't allow private citizens to own guns, except for hunters, and these are strictly regulated, guns need to be locked away, expensive and lengthy training before you get the license, frequent controls. Every shooting in Germany is covered by the news, it's like 1 per month or so. We had 5 (five) school shootings, clearly "inspired" by the US, who has like 100 per year.
How come all this unreasonable stuff is going on in Germany, yet we are the strongest economy of all Europe? And the US-economy is still stronger, the average income per person is 53,000, in Germany it's 45,000. Not to mention the shitload of cash you spend on your military, isn't it like 1,000,000,000 per day?

Dear German- you have a fundamental misunderstanding about what Obamacare is. It isn't "free insurance", it is a law that forces everyone to buy insurance, and also forces insurance companies to cover everyone-therefore rates go up. We all got forced into buying more expensive and less customized for our needs insurance.
Also, there are 315,000,000+ people in the USA, and about 98,000,000 have a full time job. That is less that 50% of the working age population. Germany is at about 74% of the working age population employed.
In America, the average HOUSEHOLD income is $53,000, for people filing individual taxes it was about $43,000. Our welfare system is very similar to that in Germany, but it is overly large with not enough supervision, so it becomes abused. If you apply to welfare they tell you NOT to work a part time job, because they do not subsidize the welfare properly, its like an all or nothing deal. I don't understand how that is supposed to help people, it seems to me it just creates generations of people dependent on the system.

if obama tried european/canadian type healthcare republicans would go apeshit

Solar is not the best power. Creating them requires toxic chemicals that pollute a lot, which causes more deaths per watt produced than nuclear power.
And because they can't produce electricity all year round, solar power plants have to be build on top of gas lines, so they are essentially gas plants that are supplemented by solar energy

How do you propose we store this for use for the hours where there is no sun or so little that it no longer generates power. The cost of a capable capacitor is unfeasible with current tech. Figure that out and you will have your Nobel prize. One of the many hurdles. The only structure that effectively uses them is the ISS. Mainly due to the fact its in space and has to realign its panels to face the sun while in orbit.

Your so wrong it's hilarious. Go look up the efficiency of the knew solar cells. If we put one on top of each home and a few good plants (with maintenance teams) in unoccupied area, we could power EVERYTHING with JUST solar, water, and wind power in their respective most efficiency areas.

Well with current technology and infrastructure development the most viable "clean" powersource is actually nuclear power.
Yes there has been a few accidents involving nuclear power plants, but what most people probably don't realise is those acidents havent been nearly as disastrous as the media and anti nuclear advocats have made them out to be.
Chernobyl may have spread a large quantity of radioactive dust, but even inside the exclusion zone a lot of people are still living there today, and after the fukushima accident the radiation levels most places apart from directly around the nuclear plant is not all that dangerously radioactive.
The main problem with nuclear reactors now a days is they are of an old and inherently bad design that was pushed out by scientists and the us in general to get people to quickly adopt nuclear power, while giving them enough time to perfect what was meant to be the main type of reactors.

The reactor type they had hoped would become the staple was so called breeder reactors,they have the ability to be fairly close to selfsustaining as they were able to create more nuclear fuelmaterial from what was fed into it. this meant it would generate almost no waste, and the waste wouldnt be dangerously radioctive for 10s of thousands of years, but instead is mostly harmless after only a few hundred years.
Breeader reactors would even be able to use the current stockpiles of nuclear waste as a fuel source since light water reactors that are currently used only extract a miniscule amount of the potential energy in the uranium, around 1%.
Also new 4th generation nuclear plants are far safer than old reactors, and are so safe that you practically need to deliberately screw something up for it to go wrong.
Look at France, most of their energy comes from nuclear power, and they have had zero incidents so far.

Not yet, but now that you have made me aware of it i probably will.
Where can i find that video? apart from torrenting it.
The reason i write what i did is i am researching for my technology history report where i decided to look into the history behind the rise and decline of nuclear power as promising power source, and what it would take to get people to reconsider using it as a mainstay power source.
In short i am a rather pro nuclear person, especially after reading about the new 4th generation nuclear plants being developed.
