Hump Day Report: Green Stupidity
ALOHA, ALL!! I think you can do just about any stupid thing, call it “green,” and get praised for it. Fisker Car company is a perfect example (this is the company that took half a billion of your tax dollars so they could build cars in Finland.) Fisker Karma Electric Car Gets Worse Mileage Than an SUV – Common American Journal Love this: “…Press responses from Fisker Automotive highlight the problem here: electric vehicle makers want to pretend that the electricity to charge the car comes from magic sparkle ponies sprinkling pixie dust rather than burning fossil fuels.” Looks like Fisker has also missed some important production deadlines: Government-funded Fisker misses key electric-car goals – Arizona News from USA Today Don’t even get me started on the expensive light bulbs we are forced to buy. I’m considering designing a windmill that runs on solar panels with an outlet where you can plug your car in for electricity. Slogan: “It Blows.” So where’s my multi-million $$$$ loan?
Occupy this! Obama’s raised more money for Democrats from Wall Street donors than all Republican candidates combined « Hot Air “.. Obama has brought in more money from employees of banks, hedge funds and other financial service companies than all of the GOP candidates combined, according to a Washington Post analysis of contribution data. The numbers show that Obama retains a persistent reservoir of support among Democratic financiers who have backed him since he was an underdog presidential candidate four years ago.”
Give ’em and inch and they’ll take the whole thing. St Paul’s Cathedral announces closure due to ‘Occupy’ protesters – Common American Journal “The decision to close St Paul’s Cathedral is unprecedented in modern times,” Mr Knowles told a press conference. “We have done this with a very heavy heart, but it is simply not possible to fulfil our day-to-day obligations to worshippers, visitors and pilgrims.”
Great video from HDR reader Garry! “Despite what you hear from the media and the Democrat party, the poor are getting richer. In fact, America’s poor are so rich, we should be celebrating it.”
Those darn facts. Under Fire, The Washington Post Quietly Scrubs Their Marco Rubio Hit-Piece – Common American Journal “Thanks to those stubborn things called facts, today it’s the Washington Post under fire, not the subject of their Thursday hit piece, Florida GOP Senator Marco Rubio. And now the WaPo memory-holing has begun.”
Don’t interrupt that tee time!!! Obama Offers Saudis Condolences From the Golf Course – Common American Journal “Saturday marked the 27th time Obama has been golfing this year. It was the 85th outing of his presidency.”
Stay in Vegas. Barry’s there campaigning on our dime, focusing on his job instead of creating jobs for Americans. Here’s a new ad highlighting that fact:
NOT a victory for 0bama, no matter what he says. Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory in Iraq | FrontPage Magazine “The U.S. pressured the Iraqis to come to an agreement on extending the U.S. stay into 2012, and almost every Iraqi political party approved. General Lloyd Austin asked that 14-18,000 troops remain; a number that did not make President Obama happy. The number was reduced to 10,000, earning the support of Secretary of State Clinton. That, too, was too much for President Obama. It fell to 3-4,000, raising significant concern about whether it’d be enough. Now, it has been announced that all of the remaining 39,000 troops will come home by Christmas, except for 160 attached to the embassy in Baghdad.” And this from The Heritage Foundation: Obama’s Decision to Withdraw from Iraq Poses Security Risks
ICYMI (and you probably did because it was a landslide victory for a conservative Republican.) Jindal: Four. More. Years « Hot Air “Jindal earned 65.8 percent of the vote in yesterday’s ballot, negating the need for a November general election, according to the AP, which declared him the winner.”
Ineptocracy (in-ept-oc-ra-cy) System of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. (Thanks to hubby for “The Word of the Day.” Also got this from Stacy 🙂
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
