How many of those "green investments" have failed, dipstick? We can start at Solyndra and go on from there.

First of al, voters now can be asked for ID. The question was a Photo ID.
Republicans passed voter photo ID requirements even though there is no statistical evidence o any voter fraud that this photo ID would prevent.
In other words, it was voter suppression. No one said it was racist. The motivation was to reduce the number of Democrats voting. Not racially motivated.
With background checks for gun purchases, the motivation is public safety.
you and all the libs screamed racisim over voter id..said it woud keep blacks from voteing..that's all we heard for months before the election. so what you're saying now, is showing id is wrong for voters because it keeps people from voteing but yet you want to discirminate against those who would need id for a background check. I guess that must mean that you're ok with discrimination just as long as it fits your agenda.

Brian Kilmeade So Wants Boston Bomber To Be Muslim?!

"We have this Saudi, he's a person of interest, we're questioning him...if it is somebody here on a student visa, a Saudi, what does that mean in the big picture in the war on terror and Al Qaeda, knowing that we've had cells in the Lackawanna Six, the Fort Dix Six, and others before." Phares responded that if evidence showed a connection to the Saudi then it could be of a jihadi nature; but cautioned that we need to wait for that information. Kilmead said that he will have Phares back "especially if this Saudi is involved."

As reported on Media Matters, the right wing, including Murdoch's NY Post, attempted to create another Richard Jewel in their immediate speculation that the Saudi was connected to the bombing. Looks like Brian Kilmeade was part of that effort on Murdoch's "fair & balanced" "news" network!

The Saudi Marathon Man

A twenty-year-old man who had been watching the Boston Marathon had his body torn into by the force of a bomb. He wasn’t alone; a hundred and seventy-six people were injured and three were killed. But he was the only one who, while in the hospital being treated for his wounds, had his apartment searched in “a startling show of force,” as his fellow-tenants described it to the Boston Herald, with a “phalanx” of officers and agents and two K9 units. He was the one whose belongings were carried out in paper bags as his neighbors watched; whose roommate, also a student, was questioned for five hours (“I was scared”) before coming out to say that he didn’t think his friend was someone who’d plant a bomb—that he was a nice guy who liked sports.“Let me go to school, dude,” the roommate said later in the day, covering his face with his hands and almost crying, as a Fox News producer followed him and asked him, again and again, if he was sure he hadn’t been living with a killer.

The green investments were made to companies with promising ideas & were riskier than most investors would prefer. The hopes were to help these people get their ideas out there & make advancements. Some did not make it.
This risk was known when the program was designed. There was a fund established to cover the losses. I believe it was 10 billion. Most of the fund remains unused.
Lets talk Solyndra. Solyndra's panels were not of the typical design & were not silicon based as most panels. The price of silicon was going up & up & this made Solyndra's panels not only innovative but cost competitive.
Two things then happened, the price of silicon dropped dramatically & China invested tens of billions in their panel manufacturing. These things killed Solyndra. Market conditions that were not present when Solyndra was approved.
Solyndra was founded in 2005 and took advantage of local, state and federal incentives and grants which were available at that time.

As you noted, Solyndra's technology was created at a time when silicon panels where becoming very pricy and the company could have become wildly successful.

Solyndra didn't use all of it's loan guarantees.

The right wing stooges continue to be dishonest about the various green incentives that were made available beginning as early as the Clinton administration.

Amazingly, the Boston perpetrators apparently thought they could somehow get away with their deed even though they chose to set their bombs off at the most-photographed spot on the planet at the time. Moreover, although they were not prepared to die with their bombs, they do not seem to have had anything that could be considered a coherent plan of escape. This rather bizarre inability to think about the aftermath of the planned deed is quite typical in the case studies.(Also commonly found: an inability to explain how killing a few random people would advance their cause.)

The Boston perpetrators seem never to have ventured much more than a few miles from the bombing location, and they appear to have had no reliable means of transport and no money. Then, when the police published their photographs, they mindlessly blew whatever cover they had by killing a campus cop, hijacking a car, stealing money, trying to run a police blockade, and engaging in a brief Hollywood-style car chase and shootout. Surveillance imagery played an important role in identifying the terrorists (as it did in terrorist events in London in 2005), but the key breakthrough appears to have come when the culprits decided to leave their lair, after which the police applied standard killer-on-the-loose methodology

Boston appears to be a lone-wolf attack—albeit one with two wolves—in the sense that no one besides the bombers seems to have been aware of it. Attacks in which only the perpetrator knows about the plans are obviously more difficult to avert than ones involving a great number of talkative people.(In some cases, would-be terrorists have advertised for support or collaborators on Facebook and in Internet chat rooms.) Before Boston, some 16 people had been killed by Islamist terrorists in the United States in the years since 2001 (13 of them at Ft. Hood), and all of these were murdered by people who were essentially acting alone.


Concern about “lone wolf” attacks has grown in recent years, and a 2011 DHS assessment concluded that “lone offenders currently present the greatest threat.” This is a reasonable observation, but those concerned should keep in mind that, as Max Abrahms has noted, while lone wolves may be difficult to police, they have carried out only two of the 1,900 most deadly terrorist attacks over the last four decades. They may be harder to stop, but they are also less lethal.(It should also be kept in mind that an American’s chance of being killed by any kind of terrorist, even with 9/11 included in the count, remains about one in 3 million or 4 million per year.)

That's why so many countries in Europe are struggling to stay afloat. They wanted "fairness" too until the government couldn't extract enough tax money anymore. France has already reached 75% and it still isn't enough.

But our beloved celebrities who worship Obama's idea of "fairness" are ever so happy to do their "fair share". Just wait until they have to fork over 75%.

This president wants big government by taxing everything that isn't nailed down. We've got four more years ahead. Unless more Americans snap out of it before November 2014.

Hindsight is always 20/20.

By 2020, it's going to be just as clear looking back at 2008-2016. Let's just hope it's not the last chapter.
