Not in Oklahoma. The state of Oklahoma has made

owner either uses electricity from dirty coal and oil or he
gets none.

well corporations like the now defunct solyndra (obama contributers) receive hundreds of millions from obama that they kick half back to the dnc when they go belly up, is this the corporate america you mean pattie ? after ALL green obama corporations obama funneled taxpayer dollars to went belly up (after providing the obama campaign machine its kickback), all green energy production was sold at firesale prices to china where now obama buys all his green solar panels and turbines. great news for the country as utility bills double and triple. only you syncophant blind sheep libs cheer this mess on. taxpayers lose with green money funneling, then lose again because power produced is 1/100th of whats needed at 200% higher rates they pay on their power bill.

I hear those windmills are killing bald eagles and snowy owls like super-charged blenders set to Puree. Democrats is soooo stupid. And the solar farms are frying birds that fly over. I guess those Chinese solar panels get really hot.

And oil and coal and natural gas producers are polluting the
country side, flattening towns with gigantic explosions and killing people,
and destroying rivers and oceans.

So what's yer point?.

Obama is the Pied Piper and you are the dutiful rat following along behind him.

How is it that every green energy company Obama endorsed or aided went belly up, giving company officials millions of dollars of taxpayer's money?

You know that you are dead wrong, over 90% of companies that received loans through the DOE loan program are still in business and paid back those loans. The success of the loan program was so successful that it out preformed even congresses expectations when congress put aside 2.5 billion to cover potential failures in investments.

There isn't a single venture capital firm that has the same success rate that the DOE had with it's loan program and all would kill to get it to even 75% success rate in investments.

Of all the companies that received money from the stimulus spending on green projects around the country less than 1% went out of business. Remember that the stimulus spends on projects and funding for loans through the DOE and the record clearly states that there is an exceptionally high success rate for businesses that took part in it.

No Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaary. Man has used fossil fuels since there was man and it has caused no damage to the environment. It is only since Michelle Obama took power that West Virginians have had to resort to Cannibalism to feed their families. In the mean time, Evita sits at the White House drinking Mudslides with her mother while the white folks in West Virginia eat rocks just to feel something. It is reverse racism at its worst.

You're absolutely right as usual, MC Pat, about President Obama's leadership skills, but why incite all the racists here?

Yeah, I was reading that article where it stated the "investment" will pay for itself in 8 years. Kind of like the extra money you pay for those junk electric cars.

8 years? I suppose they are expecting these things never to break down, need maintenance or replacement.

While our war on terror continues, poverty still on record levels in the US, record debt, the Soviet Union rebuilding, this big-eard joker is worried about solar panels and finding black kidnapped kids in another country. Wow, what a great President. Where would the US be today without that kind of leadership and priorities.

If by leadership skill you are referring to leading from behind and after the fact, yes, Obama has great skills.
