Another Democrat green-energy “success” story.

Does it have to be explained AGAIN?

We don’t have the resources, nor the tech.

Or the cheap labor with no worker’s comp, no health insurance, no vacation, no witholding, no 401k’s and no social security.

SHHHHHH, they’ll move operations to Mexico, and we’ll still be paying for it.

By the Way poppajoe49; I met President Reagan and his First Lady Mrs Reagan, and I can honesty tell you that Mrs. Reagan looks EXACTLY the same as she does on T.V..

While President Reagan was more Presidential, Mrs. Reagan was more out going.

With her it was more like; Hi how are you doing.

Out of all the Presidents that I have met? Him, and his wife were the only ones that I really do like.

At the RNC I got a poster of President Reagan, as well as Nixon.

I was driving a semi-truck on the 101 freeway north of Los Angeles when his funeral procession went by the other way. The entire freeway came to a stop, people got out, went to the guard rail, and saluted as he went by. It brought a tear to my eye, along with the eyes of a bunch of Marines.

Next question: how much of the taxpayer dollars the company received went straight back to Harry Reid in the form of compaign contributions? We’ll probably never know.

Even if we did know, his constituents wouldn’t care, the media would not report it, and he would ignore any questions about it, till people got distracted by the next reality TV show.

But look at all the money Dirty Harry got for his Cowboy Yodeling cause.

Despite all the government money, another “green” company goes under. Is anyone surprised? These companies were formed to collect government cash and provide big paychecks for corporate officers (and big contributions to certain politicians). Obama is subsidizing companies that really have no reason to exist, it’s crony capitalism at its worse. In a just world the MSM would investigating this mess and people would go to jail, but since the people involved are Democrats, little or nothing will be done.

A government grant cannot create a market for a product. Successful green energy (if it’s ever found ) will probably come from an unsubsidized company.

When it’s at the other end of the tunnel, coming at them, and the train whistle sounds.

Yet again a fine example of barry’s lack of leadership. That flushing sound we are hearing is all of our money flushing down the green energy toilet. Give it up folks, green energy is a pipe dream and a total waste of resources. Time and our money.

Barry gets confused when he has to lead anyone other than the mindless drones of ACORN, SEIU, and occupoopers. If you can think for yourself, and have the ability to question the party line, he gets terribly confused.
He’s the perfect example of a barely educated, middle management flunkie. He can parrot what he is told to, and works from his given script when dealing with those under him. Once he goes off the well marked path, he is hopelessly lost.
