Solyndra and the NEW solar government loans….

September 29, 2011

Everyone has heard of Solybdra, right?

Can we all agree that 1)It was a terrible idea from people in power that have no clue about how business decisions are supposed to be made and 2) it certainly appears to be political cronyism?

And now to show that the Obama administration, and Obama himself, cannot learn or JUST PLAIN DOES NOT CARE, we have this story from the Gatewaypundit:

“The Obama Administration is giving $737 million to a Tonopah Solar, a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve.”

and why does this look bad, you ask? Well because:

“PCG is an investment partner with SolarReserve.”

and why is that Especially bad, you ask again?  Well because

“Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law happens to be the number two man at PCG.”

So you see, ANOTHER payoff to a political ally with OUR money!!!!  This must stop!!!  If you disagree with me, are you going to be happy when the “other side” does the same thing, only then the money will go to the war machine??

This is WHY the Government MUST have LIMITED POWERS!!!  Call your Representatives.


Ford and the US Government…..

September 27, 2011

Has anyone heard the one where Ford puts together an Advertising campaign, that basically says:

“I wasn’t going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government. I was going to buy from a manufacturer that’s standing on their own: win, lose, or draw. That’s what America is about is taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail that you gotta’ pick yourself up and go back to work!!”

 The Ad stars Chris McDaniel.

Here are links, on BigGovernment and the Blaze, to articles that have the link to the Ad.

If you viewed the links, you would also notice that Ford is apparently pulling the Ad campaign, NOT because of any pressure from the Obama administration (because it would not look good to get beat by the ONLY successful Auto company in the country), but because:

“(W)e were not coerced into pulling the ad down. The campaign continues to run. We took the ad out of rotation after 4 weeks which is consistent with the typical lifecycle for the campaign.”

Got that??  It is NOT because the government pressured them!!!

Then, while perusing the internet for information I come across this article on Zerohedge, where I find this little statistic:

“Ford gets another $163 million.”

In the month of August!!!  From the Government!!!  And now, they pull the Ad??  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……….

And, in case you were wondering………..the Ad was GREAT!!!  It IS American!!!  Now, it looks as if Ford is selling out…………and for about 1/3 of Solyndra……….I mean, couldn’t they have held out for more????
