Another Kanjorski Ship Taking On Water ....Or Here We Go Again ?

Well it seems another government backed Kanjorski enterprise may be on the verge of doing what all government backed Kanjorski enterprises do....crap out. Russ Kanjorski who was VP of Abound Solar until just a few months ago when he and several other executives including the president left within a few weeks of each other. Abound Solar which received several hundred million in loan guaranties from the obama  administration to build solar panels just announced they are laying off 70 % of its work force. The company said they were laying off in order to retool to make a more efficient solar panel. Rumors have swirled since its executives left that Abound Solar may go the way of Solyndra which declared bankruptcy soon after receiving several hundred million from the obama administration.

Report: Stimulus-backed solar company lays off 70 percent of workforce

Further evidence that when government officials usurp the role of the free market to choose winners and losers, they inevitably shuffle taxpayer dollars across the table to … losers. The Heritage Foundation’s Lachlan Markay reports:

President Obama used a weekly address in July 2010 to tout his stimulus package’s support for the solar industry. One of the companies he mentioned specifically, Abound Solar, just announced that it will lay off 70 percent of its workforce.

Obama And The Media That Doesn't Chirp

 There are a good many people who have watched the press reaction to and handling of obama with both amazement and amusement. The list of questionable ties and activities obama has  engaged in is a long one all of them conveniently ignored by the press. I honestly don't know if there is anything to the rumors, allegations and questions swirling around obama and that ladies and gentlemen is the point. Why is it I don't know ?

Some 'Splainin' to do in Chicago

By Lee Cary & Marty Watters

On February 27, a Chicagoland website, Illinois PayToPlay, cited the star witness in the Operation Gambit trials of the early '90s, Robert Cooley, as a primary source for the news that Daniel Frawley says he gave $400,000 in cash to Tony Rezko, who then passed it on to Barack Obama.

P.E.T.A. By Their Own Definition Are Mass Murderers

 For years I have watched the antics of this crazed group of liberal Flying Monkeys and their efforts to humanize animals, fish and fowl. From trying to force children to call fish Sea Kittens so they won't eat fish to throwing blood on those wearing fur.They have marched from one insane act of idiocy to the next with the moral high ground supposedly lending them their self righteous smugness, that is until now. It seems they are mass murderers and on a grand scale.

PETA: People Exterminating Thousands of Animals

Regular readers know that I’ve had a long standing beef with PETA. (Pun fully intended.) This is an organization which has taken the noble, worthy cause of helping out animals in distress and turned it into a misguided and frequently dangerous cult, frequently doing more to harm legitimate animal care initiatives than to help any four legged friends in need. But the story uncovered by the Daily Caller this week really puts things in perspective. It turns out that in the few cases where PETA operates actual shelters, they have one of the worst records in the country in terms of killing off animals rather than putting in the effort to care for them and find them homes.

Democrat War Mongers

 Well once again I heard one of the liberals most enduring and favorite memes and once again I had the pleasure of gently pointing out that he was misinformed. How many of my fellow Republicans have sat and listened to or read some all aquiver liberal expound on the topic of Republican war mongering. I would wager most if not all have read or heard it. Well as with most liberal memes it is about 180 degrees from the truth.  Its only my opinion but it seems to me that this is fed and fueled in large part by Republicans desire to see a strong and well armed United States which often drives the liberal/progressive/democrat cabal insane as they see it as funding which does not go to support the welfare state. However, while it is true Republiicans may build the guns,bombs and bullets, it is the democrats who use them.

 The Civil War was began by democrats in the South upon the election of the very first Republican president. His name was Lincoln, some of you may have heard of him. Well with his election democrats in the south angry and afraid he would further curtail or remove their rights to own black men, women and children first left the union ( the very first fleebaggers ? ) then began the Civil War when they fired on a Union fort.

WW I.... a democrat president
WW II .... a democrat president
Korea .... a democrat president
Vietnam .... first troops in under truman and we went all in under democrats kennedy and johnston

 The only 2 times in history nuclear weapons were ever used against humans was by a democrat and they were used against civilian populations at that

I figure we had somewhere around 1.3 million dead American service men and women and untold tens of millions of civilian deaths under or because of democrats. Question ...how many war dead under or because of Republican leadership. So like I said we Republicans may indeed build the guns, bombs and bullets but it is democrats who kill with them.

Liberalism ....The End Result

Liberalism as a rule has no tether in reality. Liberals are fueled by outrage at the shape of the world we live in and insist that the rest of us should accompany them into fantasy land and as a rule have the privilege of paying for their ignorance. Man caused global warming, green energy, the effectiveness of welfare, everyone should own a home, a multi cultural society. It seems to me that all these liberal religious mantra's  ( yes they are religions ) just haven't worked out quite like they thought they would. But in liberal fantasy land it is excused because well ....they mean well, as if noble intent should excuse their stupidity. Some of the absolute craziest are the animal rights wing of the liberal/progressive/democrat cabal of the perpetually insanely outraged. When I read the story below and made note of the fact that she didn't want anyone under the age of 12 snuffed out I thought how damned decent of her ...for a liberal I mean.

Another Democrat Created Paradise

I have pointed out in other blogs postings that democrats have a knack for turning cities into drug infested, crime ridden, broke, run down pits of despair that Lucifer would be glad to have a vacation home in. We here in Pennsylvania have more than a few examples of their handiwork in Wilkes Barre, Philly, Reading but it seems our capitol city of Harrisburg is in a class by itself rivaling even that of other democrat created versions of paradise on earth such as Detroit, Washington D.C., Flint, Gary, Newark, Camden,. And people continue to elect them to office, mind boggling.

Is Harrisburg’s Nightmare America’s Future?

Is Obama Going Republican ?

 I guess obama decided the only way he could win was to go Republican. Its clear he can't run on his own policies as they have failed at every turn. The solution, become a Republican for a brief time but only until after the election when I expect him to announce he was only kidding.

AP source: Obama seeks 28 percent corp. tax rate


(AP) President Barack Obama is proposing to cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent and wants an even lower effective rate for manufacturers, a senior administration official says, as the White House lays down an election-year marker in the debate over tax policy.

Didn't They Do This In The U.S.S.R.

They have no shame. The ink isn't even dry and they are denying obama had anything to do with it. The truth is this pipeline had been studied for more than 3 years and we have 2 million plus miles of pipelines in this country now. We know how to build pipelines.

Shameless… Jay Carney Says Obama Didn’t Turn Down Keystone Pipeline – It Was Republicans

White House press secretary Jay Carney first says Republicans “forced” President Obama to deny the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Later in his press briefing, Carney says Obama didn’t turn down the pipeline.

That wasn't the question PPP polling asked but it should have been. All you obama supporters out there ain't going to like this one.

February 20, 2012 by Don Surber

The liberal Public Policy Polling organization asked the public “Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of” each president by name ahead of George Washington Birthday — or as it is more commonly referred to as Presidents Day, as if Andrew Johnson is the equal of George Washington.When it comes to our current president and his predecessor, George Walker Bush beats Barack Obama.

So obama Is All About Energy .....A Lie Only A Liberal Could Believe

I don't really need to add any of my own snark to this one.

WSJ: A Bird-Brained Prosecution



The Obama administration is prosecuting seven oil and gas companies for the deaths of 28 birds. But what about the wind industry?
The Wall Street Journal points out in an editorial this morning:
The Obama Administration’s hostility to oil and gas exploration is well known, but last week it took an especially fowl turn. The U.S. Attorney for North Dakota hauled seven oil and natural gas companies into federal court for killing 28 migratory birds that were found dead near oil waste lagoons…
Continental Resources is accused of violating the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act because “on or about May 6, 2011 in the District of North Dakota” the company “did take [kill] one Say’s Phoebe,” of the tyrant flycatcher bird family. Brigham Oil & Gas is accused of killing two Mallard ducks. The Class B misdemeanors carry fines of up to $15,000 for each dead bird and up to six months in prison…
Absurdity aside, this prosecution is all the more remarkable because the wind industry each year kills not 28 birds, or even a few hundred, but some 440,000, according to estimates by the American Bird Conservancy based on Fish and Wildlife Service data. Guess how many legal actions the Obama Administration has brought against wind turbine operators under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act? As far as we can tell, it’s zero.

But ...But ...Fracking Is Evil

 Well this I can state that without a shred of hesitation or reservation this study will be both ignored while at the same time its authors will be vilified as being in the pockets of the gas industry and thus should be ignored along with all the other studies that say pretty much the same thing.

UT Austin study says fracking hasn’t contaminated groundwater

Dallas Business Journal

The hydraulic fracturing of shale formations to develop natural gas has no direct connection to groundwater contamination, according to a study released Feb. 16 by the Energy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin  .

How Much Of The Hispanic Vote Could Obama Lose

 There are issues out there that I believe could siphon off a good many Hispanic voters from obama. They may not turn out to vote Republican but instead may just decide to sit this one out. One of them is the several hundred dead in Mexico due to operation Fast and Furious. This could be huge if the Republican candidate decides to make an issue of it. How could obama explain or even defend in any way polices engaged in by his ATF, policies that they knew with a certainty would lead to the deaths of Mexican citizens and with the number of guns involved they had to have known it would be a large number of dead. This is slowly heating up in Congress and as it slowly builds and mostly especially if AG holder is held in contempt of Congress as has been threatened by Congressman Issa.  It is becoming more likely that it will receive greater attention in mainstream media outlets which have largely ignored the story.

  Another issue which I believe may grow into a problem with a good many Hispanics is the still developing fight between the Catholic Church and the obama administration. Hispanics are largely Catholic and are the fastest growing segment of the American population. Religion may not be an overriding concern of many of the American electorate but Hispanics tend to support the Church at a higher % than the overall population.

 Then there is the issue of illegal aliens, with obama claiming to have deported more than any other administration it too could become an issue to be used to drain support from obama in November. Obama won with just a little over 53 % of the popular vote in a year with a high turn out and a bad year for Republicans across the board after 8 years of Bush who had become increasingly unpopular the last 2 years of his 8 years in office. Its a question of numbers and Republicans need not win their vote to win, just convince a few % to stay home. It seems the issues are there if the Republicans make use of them.

The Nanny State Lives

This is astounding folks ! The state has decided that a meal a parent packed was not up to the states standards and made the child take a school lunch then billed the parent for that lunch. Look at the lunch the parent sent.  I see school lunches every day, trust me they are not anything to brag on. This has Ms. obama's fingerprints all over it


NC preschooler’s “unhealthy” lunch replaced with cafeteria nuggets


RAEFORD, N.C. — A Hoke County preschooler was fed chicken nuggets for lunch because a state worker felt that her homemade lunch did not have enough nutritional value, according to a report by the Carolina Journal.

The West Hoke Elementary School student was in her More at Four classroom when a state agent who was inspecting lunch boxes decided that her packed lunch — which consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, apple juice and potato chips — “did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines,” the Journal reports.

A liberal Sock Puppet Or Mere Coincidence ?

 I remember watching the debate with George Stephanopoulos as a moderator and even caught part of the exchange between he and Romney and the look of total confusion on Romney's face as Stephanopoulos asked again and again if states had the right to ban contraception. I didn't think much of it at the time but as they say hindsight is 20 - 20 and I didn't know it then but I should have been paying more attention. Why you ask, well just a few short days later obama introduced his proposal to have the Catholic Church pay for contraception in health care plans for employees. It has been common knowledge that Stephanopoulos receives a morning briefing from the White House via phone every morning. Knowing that it leads to the question does the obama administration have their hand up the back of ole George's shirt making his mouth move. I suspect yes as mere coincidence in politics is usually a well thought out scheme.

Political Correctness ... A Definition.

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse Or AKA Democrats

 It should come as no surprise to most that those places which have been run by and for liberals for decades are the absolute worst places in the nation to live. We have made note of the names of these cities in what ever worst place list they happen to be occupying at that time. The names of the cities may change from year to year and they may move up or down in the rankings but they remain much the same from year to year, depressingly so. ....Detroit, Flint, Chicago, St Louis, Newark, Cleveland, New Orleans, Gary. The one thing which does not change is that have been run by democrats for decades. The poster child for democrat polices has long been Detroit and with good reason. In 1960 the population of Detroit stood at close to 2 million and it was arguably the most well off city in the nation and for its size perhaps the world. Today its population has fallen to less than 750,000 and the city is considering bulldozing 1/3 of the city and turning it into farmland and year to year the city never falls out of the top 5 on the FBI's deadliest cities list. Detroit is the face of liberalism and its fate may be our fate if we continue on the path we now walk.

Miami named most miserable U.S. city

The rankings are based on factors including jobless rates, violent crime, foreclosures, income and property taxes, as well as considerations like weather, commute time and political corruption.
Reeling for decades from the decline of the U.S. auto industry, Michigan's troubled duo of Detroit and Flint registered at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, among the most miserable cities.
"Detroit and Flint are struggling," said Badenhausen. "Violent crime is highest in the country in Detroit; housing prices are down 55 percent. Detroit is closing schools and laying off policemen. In recent years they have been demolishing houses to change their city landscapes"

1,200,000 Americans Disappear, No One Notices

 Well I had been wondering for some time just how obama was going to deal with the unemployment numbers in time for his re election effort. With unemployment hovering around 9 % Christ himself would have had a difficult time getting re elected. Reading the newest unemployment stats I saw my concerns had been misplaced. In a trick even the Almighty himself would have had to have whipped up a plauge or flood to achieve obama made 1.2 million American citizens disappear. Its a neat trick if you can pull it off and it seems obama has done just that.

More Scandal At Obama's Dept Of Justice

Say it ain't so. The most transparent administration in history continues to have difficulty with its official governmental Flying Monkey strike force. It seems that several officials within obama's Department of Justice have had their sticky little fingers in the pockets of and I quote " allegedly corrupt finance executives who were indicted under court seal within the past 13 months, but never arrested or prosecuted." The story goes on to mention that several officials of the U.S. Virgin Island are also under investigation as well. In any case it is becoming quite clear that Eric Holder needs to go. I suspect obama will cut him loose as he will not need the fodder that Holder is going to provide his opponent in the general election this fall. And Holder is a target rich opportunity that will not be passed up. Anyway read for yourself.

Has Any President Ever Had 2 Contempt Of Court Citations ?

 In an event that most of the media seem to have missed our President obama was served with an order to appear in a Georgia court. He of course being obama and far above such pedestrian activities failed to appear and then of course a contempt of court citation was issued. The media seems to have missed that as well.

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/02/obama_got_served.html

Obama was also hit with the same charge in the aftermath of the B.P. oil spill when he continued the drilling ban against court orders.

Obama's Bloody Hands

Obama has a problem with Hispanic voters, he doesn't know it yet but he will. Its O.K. because Hispanic voters don't yet realize they have a problem with obama either but they will. Not long after taking office someone in the obama administration ( who remains a mystery ) approved a ill conceived scheme to arm Mexican drug cartels with guns purchased in the U.S. and then allowed to cross the border into Mexico. The basic premise seems to have been to stop the flow of arms to these drug cartels by arming these drug cartels. Several problems with the plan 1 - The Mexican government was never informed of this operation....at any level. 2 - No serious effort was ever made to track these weapons after they crossed the border. 3 - the administration absolutely had and folks make no mistake here, obama and his administration can not be given the benefit of the doubt here. They in no uncertain terms had to have known that these weapons were going to kill Mexican citizens and kill a lot of them but even knowing that they moved forward.

It didn't take long for some of these weapons to show up north of the border 2 being found on the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's murder. Since then as the story slowly unfolded the level of ignorance and denial in the obama administration concerning this operation has increased to the point where it reminds me of Sgt. Schultz  of Hogan's Heros fame .... I KNOW NOTHING ..... The administration has slow walked information requests, claim to have lost paperwork and outright lied about what they knew and when they knew it.  Now a high ranking member of the Dept of Justice in AZ has indicated he will plead the 5'th when he appears in front of Congressman Issa's committee. It is Issa's committee who have been investigating operation Fast and Furious. Folks the ONLY time this defense is permitted is so that a individual can avoid self incrimination and not give any details that can be used AGAINST said individual in any future criminal charges. Eric Holder, head of obama's Dept of Justice is neck deep in this cover up ( and yes it is a cover up )  as well, seemingly lying about when he became aware of this operation. Another question is .... WHERE IS THE PRESS ? We have in plain view murder ..... conspiracy to commit murder  ..... a conspiracy to cover up murder ..... violation of treatises with the government of Mexico .... and the press interest in the story is nearly universally non existent. That leads me to ask just to what depths will members of the 5'th estate go to run interference for obama because it seems they have crossed mass murder off the list of note worthy stories. And obama himself is as guilty as anyone else in all of this as he is Eric Holders boss and is aware of what is happening or should be and has done nothing which makes him a co conspirator to murder. My question is this, as obama begins his campaign and his out reach to minorities for their vote how will it play to Hispanics if it is constantly pointed out how many Hispanics obama's policies have killed and why ?
