No greater form of racism in America than affirmative action and the shrill supporters of it.

NO MORE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION in Fire Departments!

Let's get the best candidates, the MOST qualified candidates, not someone who is given PREFERENCE!

STOP diluting all aspects of society with those who are not the brightest, the best, the MOST capable!

We now have doctors, engineers, nurses, teachers, police, fire, lawyers whose ranks have been infiltrated by LESS QUALIFIED individuals.

We need the BEST individuals for our nation to survive!

Other nations put forth their BEST candidates, America is now putting forth less than the best. That is why we are falling behind!

It is time to SELECT the BEST CANDIDATE for a job.

It's embarrassing and wrong that people are hired because of their skin color and NOT the Content of their character nor their Competency and ability to do the Job.

Affirmitive action is segregating, racist and unfair to those that excel due to ability rather than color or gender.

Nothing is more vital to what passes for a Democratic Party these days than dumbing down all standards in service to Quotas. Remember we are ONLY Obama Nation now. Expect nothing and be prepared to settle for LESS than nothing. It's a "progressive" thing.

I read the article and can only ask why it was posted on Topix in the first place. It's just a bunch of opinions from different people. They might as well post a section of this site if that's all they want to put up there. Must be a slow news day, only one Embassy staffer assassinated so far.

Solyndra, the sequel? Bankrupt solar firm, DOE facing scrutiny over panel problems

By Joseph Weber
Published October 11, 2012

House Republicans are pressing the Obama administration for more information about a solar-panel company that received a $400 million loan guarantee, then went bankrupt and is now the focus of a criminal investigation.

The committee pursuing documents on Colorado-based Abound Solar is the same that investigated the half-billion taxpayer loan to Solyndra, whose bankruptcy rocked the Obama administration. Two more Department of Energy-backed companies have since filed for bankruptcy, with Abound Solar being the latest.

Lawmakers are now questioning whether the administration might have known about serious problems with the company's solar panels before it was guaranteed the loan in December 2010 under the stimulus program.

"Abound is the third company that has received a DOE loan to go bankrupt," the House Committee on Energy and Commerce told Energy Secretary Steven Chu in a letter Wednesday. "The committee seeks to better understand what DOE knew about problems with Abound's solar panels prior to finalizing its $400 million loan guarantee."

The Energy Department halted the funding just nine months after approving the loan guarantee, but not before the company had pocketed $70 million in funds.

Abound filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, claiming Chinese competition put them out of business.

The letter from Congress was sent as the Weld County District Attorney's Office in Colorado confirmed to FoxNews.com it is conducting a criminal investigation into Abound. Spokesman Heath Montgomery declined to comment on the nature of the investigation.

The committee letter was also sent about a week after The Daily Caller reported that internal documents and sources revealed Abound's panels were defective and claimed the company "may have misled lenders at one point" to stay afloat.



OBAMA PICKS LOSERS!


WHAT FILTH!!!!

I totally agree. The less people respect or revere America the more apt they are to settle for anything with a D beside it's name on a ballot. Once a citizen admits that they didn't put in the time, effort, and energy to raise their children to amount to anything it is easy to deprive of a shot at a great American future. Once you abandon all standards, values, and sense of honor voting for the Pelosi/Obama crowd is an easy choice.
