Could O's budget sequesters have something to do with no one ordering any of them from Nordex? No government backing or subsidies,no orders.

Given that according to John F Kennedy Jr, wind and solar plants are actually natural gas plants, and given that the GOP (like the dems) get a LOT of money from the fossil fuels lobbies, you may just be right on this. Of course, Kennedy is as rabidly dem as can be and he supports W&S....

Congress is comprised of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Only the House is controlled by the GOP.

Ignorance abounds. A clear example of the failure of our government controlled schools to properly educate students.

I guess we're supposed to be happy that students can put a condom on a banana in under 3 seconds even if they don't know the most basic things about the structure, form and function of our government.

I worked with one of the people they hired, at FritoLay. This POS was fired from FL, cause he couldn't control his temper. If Nordex had such low standards for all the hiring they did; then they must have had a plant full of ignorant f**ks.
Your the one that ignorant . The workers i ll have to say half was some of the best guys I have ever work with . The manager your talking about . Only had like 3 poeple working for him . I have been a boss before . When you have poeple not doing they're job . You tend to get mad . So stop trashing good poeple for one bad egg .

I hate anything that causes job losses. It also bothers me that we jump on the bandwagon and try to do something about damn oil dependency and it falters. It's like a cycle. In a few years we'll hit another obstacle and jump out again for the alternative energy bandwagon

Perhaps it is more that the rare earth elements needed to make them cannot be mined here in the US because of ridiculously restrictive laws on mill tailings.

When Nordex officials and the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce announced plans to build the $100 million facility in the Craighead Technology Park in 2008, they said the wind turbine manufacturer would employ at least 700 workers with average wages of $17 an hour.

"Your the one that ignorant", seriously people, do you not read what you type? You lost any ounce of credibility you might have had with those five words.
