You beat me to it! My title was going to be "Crony Capitalism Part 38"

If there was only enough "other peoples' money" we could have expensive solar plants in every town manufacturing panels that could only be bought with subsidies using "other peoples' money".

Another Obama toadie that needs to be fired for spreading idiocy to the masses:

Quote:
The congressman hosted an Oct. 14, 2010, tour of the plant with company CEO Thomas H. Werner and Interior Secretary Kenneth L. Salazar to promote the company’s fortunes.

“The path to a clean energy economy starts here, in places like SunPower’s research and development facility,” said Salazar during the tour.

“The work that comes from these facilities transforms renewable energy ideas into a reality. When renewable energy companies continue to invest in places like California, the realization of a new energy future is within our reach,” he said.

Brilliant idea !

If a wall along the border doesn't keep the illegal immigrants out, give them jobs in Mexico so they'll stay home.

Shredders in the White House and in Democrat offices across the nation are going to running 24/7 come November, 2012.

And I actually hope they do, because if they don't, we won't have enough prison space to house to house everyone involved in all the "stimulus" bills.

If you want to talk about prison space, HF, go back to your golden boy RR, whose adminstration sent more people to Federal prison than any before or since, including even Nixon.

Photovoltaic solar panels are one of the brownest industries. They pump in so much electricity to manuafacture them, it takes about 20 years of the rated output to make up for its manufacture. Then hope it lasts more than 20 years. Most don't. The sun is brutal, and usually takes the cheap Chinese panels out very quickly. Even the quality panels fade fairly quick.

I don't see how it's racist myself. It might become racist over time. 30 years from now the term might be used to describe an disfunctional black public servant. Then, it might be considered racist.

I could see "Don't Obammy me bro!" being a widely used expression in the future when confronting a used car salesman or a can't-lose investment opportunity, ala Madoff.

Can you picture Reid and Pelosi standing together, ranting how republicans want to cut, starve, throw out on the street, deprive…..the old, the young, the sick, the poor…. All over cutting 80 billion dollars during the deficit extension debate…..

Is it any wonder why I so totally loath Liberalism?

There is only one way out from this mess, slash the federal budget, cap-it with new ammendments... and institute voter qualification testing.

Apparently some people believe that making fun of a black mans name is racist under any circumstances. Apparently black presidents are "more equal" than white presidents.

Nope, not racist at all. Matter of fact, I hope Herman Cain wins the nomination. obammy is about as much respect as I can offer to the present occupant of the White house. Sorry, but that is as good as I can do.
I don't suppose you were around when they were calling Pres. Bush, "The Chimp", and "Monkey Boy". And that apparently wasn't racist. To me, that is far worse.
