A museum dedicated to the coal industry will soon turn to renewables for its power. The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum in Benham, owned by Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College, is an institution that memorializes the state’s history in coal mining.

Now, with the intent of saving on power costs, the museum is switching to solar energy. According to communications director Brandon Robinson in an interview with WYMT, the project will save the museum at least $8,000 to $10,000 in energy costs on just one of their buildings alone.

Weren't the chemical weapons from Syria taken away by Russia?

I remember this being a deal that averted military action.

So assad/ Russians were hiding them?

What should be done with Automation taking more and more human jobs

You heard that right - it's not Mexicans or H1-B visas .. but Automation is going to change things in a big way ..

I have seen demos AI can now listen in on phone conversations and dynamically refresh sales script /offers between phone rep and customers .. and we are probably a decade away where all customer service will be replaced by robots.

Robots will drive our cars .. heck it will be the car .. which will be a subscription service . My daughter will most likely never need to take a driving test.

Even creative endeavors like music composition could be automated.

For most of the time since the dawn of industrialization​ - people have been fretting about loss of jobs .. but this time the shit maybe getting real ..

There is no industry on the horizon that will require massive labor..

To survive in the future you need to own/operate in the realm of one or more of

1) Capital
2) Data
4) Algorithms that get to operate on valuable data.

What should the rest do? Should Government simply provide a salary to all the citizens that will cover basic needs through a tax on the Uber Wealthy?

Trust me , in the not so distant future - this will not be a hypothetical question.

What can the courts do if the congress won't do its job ?

Say a court has determined that Rump was guilty of inciting violence during his campaign rally. It is not that they can send him to jail for it - can they?

Let's take the argument to its logical extreme .. Let's say Trump does shoot someone on 5th ave and a plaint congress refuses to do anything about it.. What can/will the courts do?

Installing family members to powerful positions is a trait of tinpot dictators

Why in the world does Trump do it.?? How are Republicans tolerating such nonsense??

Jared K knows nothing about Government and neither does Ivanka.

Is it that Donald Trump doesn't trust anyone else ..Or he is abusing his position to reward his family?

If Obama did anything close to this along with the Russian scandal.. Republicans would have taken a flame thrower through the white house.

We Democrats are too friggin docile for our nation's good.

My first Original Post

I am a part of the Berkeley Heights Democratic Committee in NJ .. we are actively working to make Linda Webber the next congresswoman for the 7th District ( and send Leonard Lance into retirement) and also getting behind a range of (D) candidates.

I hate to use the phrase - but we need to take our country back !
