    Home Charging System / Charger Kit

    Off the same 200 amp GE panel, I have a 1600 watt Titan Tankless hot water heater which draws 56 amps which requires a 70 amp bipolar breaker, also wired in 6 gauge according to code. The same electrician put it in for me about 10 years ago for $350 in labor plus breaker and straight metal conduit.

    Home Charging System / Charger Kit

    I have 200 amp service on a GE panel which doesn’t allow half slots but only had one full slot left. I was able to get tandem monopolor breakers from Ace Hardware in 2x15 amp and 2x20 amp sizes to free up another adjacent full slot for a 60 amp bipolar breaker. He chose to put both garage door...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Geo, The 40 million unemployed over two months you correctly note is why I am so critical of the continuing coordinated lockdown policy of many Blue State politicians. Elderly and infirm people are continuing to die from Covid19 when exposed but the herd who now find themselves out of school...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Geo, I don’t particularly like community bankers. They tend to be patronizing and risk averse who believe in corporatism where your salary depends on the number of subordinates you rule over. That’s a Harvard MBA thing. When I wanted to buy our first family house in Philadelphia when I started...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Geo, This guy Hanauer admits to being a banker. Last I looked CD rates were 1.3% That’s no way to beat inflation nor appease a proletariate yearning to be in the bourgeoisie and have a family and carryon the family name. That’s why we have stock markets and the ability to own Dow 30 companies...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    The problems with free health care for all is how it’s paid for and who gets to handle the money first. In the US lots of taxpayer money ends up in the pockets of our 535 Congressman and their leadership and reelection Political Action Committees. There isn’t enough tax payer money to begin...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    The light at the end of America’s health care tunnel is that our patient public is beginning to figure out that something is amiss just as private practice physicians are beginning to realize the value of direct cash practice over joining multiple specialty networks and participating with...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    More than 50 years ago Canada outlawed its private health insurance industry whose duties were assumed by each of its 10 provinces as was community hospital ownership. In the US, private indemnity health insurance has disappeared and been replaced by the Managed Care industry whose major role...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    International travelers should note that most US hospitals (there are about 5000) depend on an annual bail out by our Federal bureacracy (CMS) of about $20 Billion / year for uncompensated services already provided, in order to meet their payrolls ( top heavy and bloated). So if you have...

    But I guess he can’t because he wasn’t born here. Too bad. The current President really likes him.

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Geo, I trained at every institution abutting 68th St and York Avenue during way better times when physicians and their patients had more say in their relationship than private third party payers who were ceded healthcare authority because Federal, state and local politicians don’t want to carry...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    GEO, Honestly I do think that lockdowns were nececessary to preserve the hospital infrastructure of many urban Blue and Red state hospital systems which were depleted and mismanaged at the time Covid19 hit the US. Weakening of our inpatient hospital infrastructure was an unintended...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Philosophically, old people depend on young people for their continued survival. Many elders are retired from their livelihoods and living on their investments to supplement social security and other former employment or government benefits. The oldest of old people have no economic political...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    GEO I’m not supposed to talk about politics on this site but since you’re from Australia, the politicians I’m referring to are the so-called Blue State governors and county commissioners who are still locking down young Americans from their jobs, schools and inclinations to congregate at...

    Tesla Battery Day (Predictions anyone?)

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    It wouldn’t hurt revenue if the Tesla Buffalo plant goes back to full production of solar cells and roof tiles. 1000 solar roofs per week would do wonders for Tesla and the sunbelt states’ economies. Right now that’s another example of some elected politicians still playing right into the...

    Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    With the Covid19 disinformation campaign, and the CCP crackdown currently in Hong Kong, is Tesla Shanghai going to turn into a problem which may slow the build out of the Berlin and Cybertruck factories? Maybe using Chinese sourced batteries in Tesla Shanghai is a practical and conciliatory...
