Obama is bring jobs to the jet industry. If you read in detail the industry is due for a rebound because of 3 years of pent up demand. Obama is responsible for that 3 year slump with his war against the rich so I guess he gets credit for creating the rebound by causing the slump.

OK by you for movie stars to have private jets, visiting OWS protesters on their way to the Riviera, rappers, pro spors athletes and liberal magnates like Ted Turner, but not OK for anyone else??

Gore has held these apocalyptic views about the environment for some time. So why, then, didn't Gore dump his family's large stock holdings in Occidental (Oxy) Petroleum? As executor of his family's trust, over the years Gore has controlled hundreds of thousands of dollars in Oxy stock. Oxy has been mired in controversy over oil drilling in ecologically sensitive areas.

Gore's plane, a Boeing 707 gas guzzler burns on average 4.1 gallons a mile.

Bush's house much "greener" than gores.

Did we bail them out with our tax dollars?
Do they get the same tax breaks as corporation do?
Do they bribe our congress?
Ted Turner might but overall these people are playing the hand given them by others, namely bankers and Wall Street, y'know the people that write our tax code and make our laws.

The Koch Brothers give a hell of lot more to charities than Ted Turner. That's fact.

Think TanksThe Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation was established with the stated purpose of advancing social progress and well-being through the development, application and dissemination of "the Science of Liberty". Charles' and David's foundations have together provided millions of dollars to a variety of organizations, usually libertarian or conservative think tanks, such as Americans for Prosperity Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Mercatus Center, the Institute for Humane Studies, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Institute for Justice, the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution, the Institute for Energy Research, the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment, Heritage Foundation, the Manhattan Institute, the George C. Marshall Institute, the Reason Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute.[4][5] The foundation also funds study groups called Koch Scholars who gather and read "an assortment of select books, movies, and podcasts surrounding the principles of a free society."[6] Colleges where such groups exist include the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Cancer Research, Arts, and ScienceThe David H. Koch Foundation has funded cancer research and a number of arts and science organizations, including the American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the American Museum of Natural History.

Just last year they gave $150 Million to MIT for cancer research.

Ted Turner is a wimp, so is gore, so is soros.

Missed the point again, too far over your pointy liberal head.

Super PAC's are also donating money to nobama, through anti-gun David Brock (media matters) whose body gaurds carry Glocks! See the hypocricy?? No?? Because your a demorat.

So forcing someone to donate to the left's choice of needs is after forcing the churches on the contraception issue? What's next, Stalin?

Brush already cleared.

Barbecue this weekend.

The ranch house was rated top energy efficiency by the EPA, who you lefties idolize.

LMAO as a matter of fact, the top three city government buldings using greed energy in the US is Dallas/FW, Austin and Houston. All done through republican leadership.

Want green energy? Vote republican. The demorats only talk about it.
