President Barack Obama is sending Congress a $3.73 trillion spending blueprint that pledges $1.1 trillion in deficit savings over the next decade through spending cuts and tax increases.
Obama's new budget projects that the deficit for the current year will surge to an all-time high of $1.65 trillion. That reflects a sizable tax-cut agreement reached with Republicans in December. For 2012, the administration sees the imbalance declining to $1.1 trillion, giving the country a record four straight years of $1 trillion-plus deficits.

Ah...right....silly me ...I should have realised that there is no actual "up" side to wind power at all and it's all just part of the military-industrial complex ripping off the taxpayer.......
by all means substitute any othe kind of electrical generation you like - including nuclear - which I am personally fine with - my point was "simply" that wind power gets generated at times when it is inconvenient to actually use it.....which is, I think, one of the points you quoted....so you are agreeing with me....and that ustilising such generation would be a good thing, since hte wind farms are there already.
Or do you think that is not a good thing?

The President ordered the cabinet to cut a whopping $100 million from the
$3.5 trillion federal budget!
I was so impressed by this sacrifice that I have decided to do the same thing
with my personal budget. I spend about $2000 a month on groceries, medicine,
bills, general household expenses, etc., but it's time to get out the budget
cutting ax; go line by line through my expenses and go to work.
I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio -1/35,000 of my total
budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending $2000 a
month; I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents!
Yes, I'm going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is
all about. I'll just have to do without some things that are luxuries.
