You know what's funny about that comment? In that very same article from 2000 Gore said "The math still doesn't add up!".
Turns out that it didn't add up.
But Republicans still keep on wanting to follow that path to proven destruction. Idiots.

No? Ok, coming from a person who flat-out claimed that "Bush handed over a pristine economy to Obama", I can see that you may have a problem making a connection.
So how about this?
the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition service for month-by-month figures going back to January 2001. And they show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million. Nothing before comes close to that.
And under Obama, the increase so far has been 14.2 million. To be exact, the program has so far grown by 444,574 fewer recipients during Obama’s time in office than during Bush’s.
How about this?
The USDA began promoting food stamps with paid radio ads in 2004, under President George W. Bush, and food stamp participation increased 63 percent.
Old news is old old.
Seeing as most of your posts are bs, why should I believe you on this post.

Just weird liberal math to get that surplus. How many links do you need? lol
At any rate, IF that had been a realized surplus, wonder what part that republican congress had in achieving that?

Nationwide, the solar industry says it employs 119,000 people.
Here's some coal dust in your eyes.
"There are approximately 174,000 blue-collar, full-time, permanent jobs related to coal in the U.S."
"This total does not include indirect employment - workers who are not directly employed in the coal industry, but whose jobs are supported by that industry, which ranges in the low hundreds of thousands."
And here's some fossil fuel to burn you up.
"Even with a breakneck pace of growth, the clean-energy industry would not be creating as many jobs as the fossil fuel industry: It simply is not big enough at the moment to draw in hundreds of thousands of new workers per year. The Pew study, for instance, estimated that 770,000 people worked in green energy. That compares with more than nine million jobs for oil and gas, and many more for coal and other industries."
I guess your still working on finding the lasdt sun shine spill that flowed down a subdivision street ruining the neighborhood.

Well here's the source of their numbers, where's yours. Not sure how they came up with their statement, but the sector is growing, perhaps you think that fossil fuels will outlast other methods of power generation.

Libtard facts galore are usually wrong and so are you.
You live in the past, you die in the past. Come into the present and see how you compare to 10 or 12 years ago, or even 4.

"When President Bush took office in 2001, there were 17.3 million people on food stamps. During his last full year in office, 2008, there were 28.2 million on food stamps -- an increase of 10.9 million – or a 63 percent increase over an 8-year period.

But from the last full year of Bush’s presidency (2008) through 2011, just three years into President Obama’s presidency, the number of people on food stamps increased 16.5 million -- going from 28.2 million to 44.7 million -- an increase of 59 percent in just a 3-year period.

If you compare the average increase per year of the number of people on food stamps during the Bush administration (1.5 million) versus the average increase per year during the Obama administration (5.5 million)– food stamps have increased nearly 4 times more per year under Obama than under Bush."

And so does you story beginning in the middleof the story. Let's go back to another decade.

The story is laid out in detail in The Great American Bank Robbery by Paul Sperry and The Housing Boom and Bust by Thomas Sowell. Here it is in a nutshell.
Why is it that when you cut and paste you never provide a reference to the source, perhaps you don't want folks to know where the material is coming from.

Hey, partner. Take a look at Clinton's congress. Gotta love it.
I fully understand your need to change the subject, you went to all that trouble to show that there was no surplaus, then candidate Bush the Lesser cracks an egg on your forehead by calling for tax cuts because of the surplus.

Not much you can do but change the subject.

I posted scripture which CLEARLY refutes your yammering. You will spin ANYTHING to make yourself appear correct. You aren't. Your A- must have been for attendance. BTW, I didn't read all that junk. Just lightly scanned. Didn't have to read it. You make it up as you go.
You are so funny....

You pull a verse out of Leviticus and hold it up as proof that homosexuality is an abomination, but other verses that describe abomination and unacceptable behavoir are brought to your attention, those are twisted. Then you admit that you didn't read the whole post, and one must wonder if you've even read Leviticus, or just know of the one verse that suits your purpose.

"Solar supporters are going on the offensive about their field's jobs angle. The industry receives considerable government support, and talking about its employment advantages broadens the conversation beyond global warming."
Considerable gubment support = tax dollars wasted.
If it was self supporting, it could work. Being just another welfare agency, it's a lousy proposition.
Fossil fuels are not a renewable resource and even with the new production in the U.S. will only continue to rise in cost. Solar is not self-supporting anywhere in the world, but fostered by governments around the world as it is now, it will be. BREMC is now offering green power, but as BRMEMC always does they are going to charge extra for it, that will change.
Solar is going to be here as long as humans can still survive on this planet. Now if you don't care that your children’s children’s children might have a huge problem then it won't matter to you at all. As for the argument that gubment support = tax dollars wasted. Let’s really stop government waste and do away with Social Security, Medicare and all the other programs that are nothing more than welfare for old folks. But you only care about yourself so that won't work either.

Course the knowledge and patents are just so much waste, and should never be seen as investments or the cost of discovery.

Should we discuss the bias of the Heritage Foundation, of course not, bias is good when it supports your position.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konarka_Technol...

Konarka Technologies, Inc.
...The company was developing two types of organic solar cells: polymer-fullerene solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Konarka cells were lightweight, flexible photovoltaics that could be printed as film or coated onto surfaces.

The company had hoped its manufacturing process, which utilized organic chemistry, would result in higher energy conversion efficiency at lower cost than traditional silicon fabricated solar cells.[citation needed] Konarka was also researching infrared light activated photovoltaics which would enable night-time power generation.

...As of 2006, Konarka had received $60 million in funding from venture capital firms including 3i, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, New Enterprise Associates, Good Energies and Chevron Technology Ventures.[3] Konarka also received nearly $10 million in combined grants from the Pentagon and European governments, and in 2007 was approved for further funding through the Solar America Initiative, a component of the White House's Advanced Energy Initiative.[4] The company raised a further $45 million in private capital financing in October 2007 in a financing round led by Mackenzie Financial Corporation.[5]

The company also received $1.5 million from a state of Massachusetts alternative energy trust fund in 2003 during Governor Mitt Romney's term and another $5 million during Governor Deval Patrick's term. At the time of its bankruptcy filing in 2012, its funding history was summarized: "Konarka raised more than $170 million in private capital investments and $20 million in government grants, according to its website. Under the Bush administration, Konarka received a $1.6 million Army contract in 2005 and a $3.6 million award from the Department of Energy in 2007. Under the Obama administration, Konarka was one of 183 clean-energy companies that got a total of $2.3 billion in tax credits as part of the 2009 stimulus.
