    Yeah, cartoons about the Scottish vote for independence seem to value “humor” over factual accuracy.

    “As much as I would like to see solar power a reality, the cost and KVA output per meter*2 of a solar system just isn’t there yet. Then there is battery backup. Battery backup needs to be based on the worst case scenario as regards the absence of effective sunlight to generate power. Affordable battery technology isn’t available (nano batteries coming?) and, the massiveness of a megaWatt battery system is financially and physically unrealistic.”

    “I would much rather have seen the monies that were given to the solar panel manufacturers in this country invested in materials research and nanobattery development.”

    I agree. There will hopefully be a time when solar power is viable but our attempts to subsidize what we have now is counterproductive and has been tainted by this administration with crony capitalism.

    Responsibility for the use of troops lies with the President. It is pathetic for the cartoonist to try to place blame on Congress for not doing something which is outside of its Constitutional scope. I am sure that if Congress did try to get involved in micromanaging our soldiers Mr. Rogers would be among the first to decry their attempt to usurp the President’s constitutional prerogatives.

    You would think so, but then why has the left not opposed the President’s abrogation of the War Power’s act, a precedent that will empower hawkish presidents in administrations to come? I suspect that much of the “anti-war left” is really an “anti-Republican left,” as that is the principle they seem willing to fight for.

    Government Agencies almost always react to their failures (or at least to those that make the news) by claiming that they need more money. Here, as in most other cases, reform is what is needed.

    I guess we remember events differently on this point.

    I hope that Chelsea has a happy and fulfilling life. I do not think that her seeking high-level political offices would contribute to that, but obviously that is her decision to make.

    Harley said: “Never mind everyone from Palin, McCain, GW Bush and Mitt were right about Obama. Palin said he would be so weak Russia would invade countries. Mitt Told him Russia was a geopolitical threat. McCain said we should stay in the Middle East.

    Very true. The Republican critics you name have been very prescient. And the charge that President Obama has skipped out on more than half of his security briefings is certainly consistent with the lack of preparedness he has shown in foreign policy during his administration.

    The Iraq example conveniently omits the middle step where a President prematurely pulls American troops and influence out of a stable and developing Iraq, creating the power vacuum.

    As for the second part, the wild claims of global warming alarmists are not holding up:
