ALOHA, ALL!! You’ll be asking the same question when you hear the latest about Solyndra. It turns out internal documents relating to Solyndra show signs of being altered by the Department of Energy. This comes in the midst of the White House refusing to turn over the Solyndra documents. (Sidenote: the documents that have shared are so heavily redacted that they pretty much look like sheets of paper full of black marks.) HUH??? Why aren’t heads rolling over this entire fiasco?? And check it – the source for this story is not Fox News or some “right-wing” media outlet, but CNBC of all places: Energy Department Altered Loan-Related Releases – US Business News – CNBC But it looks like the DoE realized the gig was up and returned the documents to their original content as a result of CNBC’s inquiry about the changes. What…so that makes it all go away???? These criminals in this administration need to pay for their abuses. In the Solyndra case, that’s means Energy Secretary Steven Chu is at the top of the list (he’s standing next to “Big Sis” Janet Napolitano in the picture above.) This is a guy who wants gas to be $9 a gallon. He wants everyone to move to cities, get rid of their cars and only use public transportation. He doesn’t care that many of America’s goods are delivered by trucks, and that rising gas prices mean rising prices for…well…lots of other things, too. He’s so far from reality he lives in his own little universe. Just like his boss. Then again, he lives in DC.

Where everything is rosy.

But don’t be a REAL job creator. AmericanJobCreators.com Dispatches from the Road: Deardorff Family Farms Story ”I always thought my Dad went to work in a free-market economy. If you make the right decisions, you’re profitable. And if you make the wrong decisions, you’re not,” said Mr. Deardorff. “Now that I sit in his chair, I am amazed at how much I have to weave my way through government, government regulation and how that plays into our decision-making process.” Be sure to read this story….and the importance of fish ladders (not kidding.)
And what planet does he inhabit?
