Letter: Read the owner's manual

To the Editor:

The other day on FOX there was a panel discussing all the socialism that the current Democratic Congress is going to push onto the American people.

One specific fear was that the Green initiative would eliminate gas and oil in the future. How are we going to heat our homes? They pointed out that the polar vortex would render the proposed solar panels nonfunctional and we would freeze to death due to the grid shutting down.

But if you take a moment to read the owner’s manual for the solar panels you put on your house to help create electricity to run your heaters, you will find out something shocking. The panels actually are more efficient at polar vortex temperatures. And as an added bonus, the sun reflecting off the snow increases the efficiency even more. More free energy, no way.

You’ve got to hate it when science gets in the way of a good rant. Now that we have proven that the sun actually functions in winter, we can move onto the next socialist idea. A national holiday to allow people the day off to vote, kind of like Labor Day. A day celebrated by socialists and non-socialists alike.
