MrSteve007: They pay for the farking dams and transmission system at no profit.
HeadLever: apparently not as the rest of your post is just an in-depth rehash of the points I have already made. I am glad that you took the time to research this topic and lean about it and no longer believe that the BPA is the owner or operator of the PNW dams.
MrSteve007: Who tells the ACoE guys to open or close the spillways or generators of the dam?
MrSteve007: To say that the BPA doesn't operate and pay for the the NW regional power system,
Tricky Chicken: whidbey: HeadLever: What is funny with whidbey is that on one side of his face he is saying that 'trying to make necessities like power and lights profitable is a bad idea', and on the other he is saying that if they are a money-loser, then subsidize itDude, it's hardly rocket science. Tricky Chicken: HeadLever: GoldSpider: That's what some people in this thread actually believe.What is funny with whidbey is that on one side of his face he is saying that 'trying to make necessities like power and lights profitable is a bad idea', and on the other he is saying that if they are a money-loser, then subsidize it.I am uncertain if his position is shifting in light of our discussion or if he really does not understand his own direct incongruity.He actually tried to convince me at one time that absolutely ANY criticism of president Obama on any matter is purely based upon unjustified racism. So don't expect too much rationality from that one.Oh yeah, out of context non-sequitur FTW.But if you insist, when you're adding to the chorus of impotent raging social conservatives out there who do in fact support racism, you're really not helping.No, that had absolutely nothing to do with your position. You were clear and concise. Your clearly stated position was 'ANY criticism of this president is racism' You could be Nancy Pelosi, and if she disagreed with the president she would be a racist. You made no connection to social conservatives at all. Heck, if Michelle comments about his wardrobe, your argument would make her a racist.I asked you to clarify several times, and you stuck to your guns,I merely added this fact to help point out that you are merely a raving loon.
HeadLever: In any case, it is obvious that your assertion that the BPA operates the dams is not correct, no matter how you try to spin that misstatement.
HeadLever: When was the last time one of these agencies actually had revenues balance out costs perfectly? That is always a possibility, but not much of a reality.
MrSteve007: But you have to admit that in a vast majority of the time, it's someone from the BPA who tells the ACoE guy that he should pull the lever.
HeadLever: Which I have inferred in my point here: Overall, they market and sell wholesale power to utilities and other power companies. They are basically a transmission middleman between the producers and the utilities . . .
MrSteve007: And why it's so reliable and efficient. And it has nothing to do with private utilities, and everything to do with the BPA.
