    I love Canada for its wonderful Walleye fishing!!

    I have one of these so you know what you can do with your electricity! :wink:

    Those are great as long as they hook them up right. One of them that was put up near Minot, ND was hooked up backwards so it was taking electricity away instead of providing it.

    Lock this thread right now before it spins out of control and we start talking about energy issues again like the gas thread did. Don't you realize that we can't discuss anything but sports and half nakid women on this forum without getting in trouble? :razz: :roll: :razz:
    Why this? ^
    Sorry I was ticked off that the recent thread on gas got locked for political comments. I was actually enjoying reading the different opinions on some of the new mixtures being used or proposed. But then a couple of posts ruined it for all. Maybe we could just ban the offending posters for a week instead of just locking the threads out. I have been on boards where they will do that. They send an email asking them to cool it. If they don't their IP# is banned for a period of time.

    We have huge wind farms here in CA. This is a great place to find feathers of all kinds. :wink: You have to admit that visually they are not the most attractive view sheds.

    It's funny that we cannot have an intelligent conversation without entering politics into it. And, 98% of the time the person is a repeat offender and is usually the one to get the thread locked.

    Peer pressure is a good thing also. If I delete posts, then I am a Nazi. If I ban a member for a week, I am a Nazi. Webby has a policy of no politics and the best way to be fair is to shut it down.

    What also strikes me as funny is the fact that so many people who chime in do not know squat. They see high gas prices and immediately blame a certain political figure head when they do not realize the vastness of world economics.
