You can throw in anything you like, donglicker: Clinton isn't running for president, and Romney marched in war rallies but when it was his turn he RAN AWAY to France.

Putting the fact that ROMNEY is running for president, certainly MARCHING FOR WAR carrying pro war signs and then RUNNING AWAY to France when it was his time to serve is CERTAINLY most cowardly.

With all due respect to your experience of being a coward.

That's CRONY CAPITALISM.
What is the cut-off point for what industry ?
Lobbyists will get rich lobbying for " Their " clients.
So destroy one billion dollar corp and by default 2 new show up( overseas).
We destroy Boeing and Airbus ( Euro. corp) takes over as an monopoly and we loose 30 -40,000 jobs overseas and big trade $$$$.
All or none , not the pols picking winners and losers.
You should think through your ideas.
No, that's called using taxpayer dollars WISELY, instead of just throwing billion of dollars at EVERY company regardless of how successful they are.

The GOAL should be no tax dollars for ANY private business; allow the free market to work.

The REALITY is we don't actually HAVE a free market, but rather a group of defacto monopolies in each sector of industry. Society has grown to function within those monopolies.

That's why renewable energy & electric vehicles etc are having such trouble getting established. It's not that the technology is defective or unworkable, but rather that they have to compete in a society which has been designed over the past century to function on oil, gas, & coal.

It took DECADES of govt support for oil & gas to be developed while society transformed to move away from burning wood or coal to heat our homes, and use automobiles for transportation instead of horse & buggy. It's not like the first oil well was drilled and the next day everyone was driving to work from their home in the suburbs on the interstate highways.

The transition from gas/oil/coal to primarily renewable energy will result in at leaast as great a transformation of society as we saw over the 1st half of the 20th centruy.

I agree, EVERYONE should produce their own power, which is why I put up solar panels and a windmill and replaced my old furnace with a geothermal heat pump.

I don't oppose using oil & gas, but it should be used as a BRIDGE to renewable techologies, rather than a roadblock.

It's going to take MASSIVE amounts of oil, gas, & coal to produce the infrastructure necessary to switch to renewable energy. If we wait until every last drop of oil produced is used to drive our cars to work and every bit of coal & natural gas are used to heat our homes and keep the lights on, there will be no excess capacity to produce the power generation equipment & infrastructure of tomorrow.

In other words, if we wait until we HAVE to switch, then we won't be ABLE to switch, and our society collapses.

And I can GUARANTEE all the sheeple will be screaming in the dark- WHY DIDN'T WE DO THIS SOONER?

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

The Sundial and windmills of Holland didn't solve the world's needs so other technologies were developed.

It was private industry that developed those technologies on their own without lobbyists and pols interferring.Or at best research grants not factory mass production grants with special , non standard tax laws applying.

There are other methods such as research grants to colleges working with gov't and private industry .

I also have no problem with prize money awards for tech developement such as the Wright Bros and Charles Lindberg vied for.

What you want is being driven by Rory Reid (lobbyist son of Harry) who is pushing for Fed support of a $5B solar project in Nv.for the Chinese Solar corp. ENN...no thank you.
R. Reid .+..ENN...= Crony Capitalism .

Reid doesn't support Free Market capitalism but supports American taxpayer money crony capitalism for China.

So private industry created and developed the ENTIRE INFRASTRUCTURE of our current oil/gas/coal society without taxpayer support?

B.S.

Obviously you think oil is an infinite resource and the wells will magically refill.

Enjoy paying $10/gal for gas, if you can get it. That day is coming soon.

Your going emotional on this.

I never said ZERO tax payer support for infrastucture.

It takes Fed support to authorize pipelines across state lines etc.

I also said I'm for research grants or did you miss that ( on purpose)?

You also conveintly skipped over Rory Reid and ENN .

End of bedate.

Wait a minute! If Obama can't continue to hand out billions of taxpayer dollars to his crony buddies, how do you expect him to stay in power without those cronies financing his campaign? Damn those Republicans, they did it again. Foiled another corrupt Democrat.

I do believe I see flying pigs...
Three, American households in every age group (except 65 and over) earn significantly less today in real terms than they earned when the Obama recovery began, down almost 5 percent. This decline has occurred not since the recession began but since it ended, four months after Obama became president. African-American and Hispanic household incomes have fallen proportionately even more than the average for all households.

Four, federal government deficits remain anchored in the area of $1 trillion a year — about $3 billion a day or $126 million an hour — and they are scheduled to go much higher without Medicare and Medicaid reform. Our $17 trillion national debt, while astronomical, only scratches the surface — there exists an additional $50 trillion in unfunded federal government contractual obligations. Good fiscal policy — that is, sustainable fiscal policy — requires the private sector to grow as fast or faster than government spending. Such a simple requirement is anathema to the progressive mind-set.

So far, Obama is doubling-down on his failed policies of tax, spend, borrow, and print (as in print money). It’s an aggressive progressive plan that virtually forestalls significant future economic growth. But it couldn’t be more clear that stimulating private economic growth is the only viable path bringing down unemployment, raising labor participation, increasing household incomes, and lowering or eliminating federal government deficits.

It began with the BUSH recession, darling.

You do remember the BUSH recession.

Are we better off?
