San Diego Gas & Electric rates are nation's highest

Don't fall off the roof: http://www.fairwarning.org/2010/10/solar-instal... Old data shows that there are about .44 deaths per TwH of solar energy and I don't think they are including people who are injured cleaning rooftop solar panels. Of course, you may be posting to point out the financial costs of solar. You pay $55/mo on top of $18k and feel that is a worth while investment 8 years in. Further, solar panels don't last forever. My Condo association just replaced our solar panels after about 15 years and it has been a boondoggle.

Assault weapons ban to be discussed at an upcoming committee meeting

California already has the [Armed Prohibited Persons System][1] which confiscates guns through the CA DOJ with "violent" misdemeanors, felonies, and "mental instability." This resolution would target "at-risk" people, which means what exactly? Is the goal a world where homicidally insane people can walk the streets safely? That will never happen. At least target people diagnosed as homicidal or criminally insane. Disarming law abiding good citizens is the wrong solution. Dr. Michael Welner, The Forensic Panel, Founder and Chairman: "from my experience and from what we have learned from the literature is that a great number of people who carry out mass killings don't have a psychiatric illness they have a personality disorder. But what is common TO ALL is that they have a brewing resentment and blame an externalizing responsibility to others. Now, if you tack on a paranoid condition and a full blown psychotic paranoid condition to THAT, well then you have an individual who has already been loaded by how he relates to the world, who then has a psychotic condition on top of that." Maybe, instead of politicians trying to make the public "feel" safe and then limiting our ability to defend ourselves under the disguise of "safety", they should learn what the actual problems are and address THOSE issues. Assisting parents in teaching children personal responsibility would do more to make us safe than all the "gun bans" in history. Unfortunately, that is traditionally the role of church not state. Gun bans actually [increase crime][2]. [1]: http://blog.doodooecon.com/2013/01/gun-control-... [2]: http://blog.doodooecon.com/2013/01/forcible-rap...
