Decentralized green energy

I favor increasing rebates and tax incentives for the home owner to install rooftop solar/PV and stay away from pouring huge tax dollars into more centralized power production.

Decentralized energy is better for the economy, it spreads the wealth, better for the environment, creates far more good paying jobs than centralized power, and liberates the people from their ever increasing energy bills.

What's stopping this?
The special interests in the privatized energy sector?

On edit: When I say "stopping" for instance the California rebate is no longer and frankly the subsidies could be a lot more in my opinion.

What A Shaman Sees In A Mental Hospital

I experienced what is described in this article when I was a young man. They kept telling me I was sick but I knew different inside.

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé. These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.

Made my first batch of Canna Coconut Oil

36 grams of unmanicured bud (water leaves removed of course).
2.25 cups of Dr. Bronner's Organic Coconut Oil
1 heaping tablespoon of sunflower lecithin.

I wrapped the herb in foil and decarbed in the oven at 240F for 1 hour.
Let it cool and placed all ingredients in my Magical Butter Machine.
Ran 1hr cycle at 190F and 1hr cycle at 160F.
Poured out all into a container and froze it overnight.
Next morning I thawed out a bit and put it back in the MB2E for 2 hrs at 160F.
When done I strained it and poured into final containers.

I only sampled by licking my fingers during the final pour and I caught a mild buzz. That's a good sign.
This oil tastes so damn good. A nutty coconut flavor.
I'll take a teaspoon tonight to test it.

And after its cooled in the frig.

What is wrong with our Federal, State, and Local Governments?

They have been eroded by privatization. Profiting off of what should be a strengthening of "The Commons". A strengthening of the Public Sector.

Conservative/Libertarian answer? More privatization.

67 days old from seed today and almost ready...

The trichomes are mostly cloudy. I'd estimate 5 more days or so until harvest time!
I plan on making Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO) and infused coconut oil among other things.

Details can be found here in one of my grow journals:
