Obama's Green Dream Drain

Via Divided States.com

Long List of Failed Obama Green Energy & Solar Companies in the Billions as self-appointed green business genius throws away your tax dollars.

President Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, infamously said, “We have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
President Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu who infamously said, “We have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
Below is a list of energy companies backed by President Barack Obama and funded by the American people that have failed. President Obama has gone to great lengths to fund green companies with tax payer money but unfortunately, not one of these companies has succeeded.
President Obama is also doubling down on funding more of the same kinds of companies but unfortunately these types of technologies are far from being affordable and working properly.  Most Americans now believe that at a time when the economy is in such dire straits, areas of proven methods of readily available and affordable energy should be invested in.
Most ideologues, such as President Obama, understand this fact however are willing to ignore it to satisfy the small number of people who hate oil and gas companies.   As of now there is no technology or renewable energy on the planet that can lift and keep an airplane in the air or fuel a cargo ship and move across the vast ocean-ways.
Most Americans are asking, “Can the United States of America REALLY afford FOUR MORE YEARS of this type of rigid ideology?

TWITTER CRASH SCANDAL ERUPTS INTO FOUR LANES OF TERROR!

The investigation into the as-yet unexplained global shutdown of Twitter last week took a dramatic  turn this morning  as a key person of interest in the investigation broke through the police cordon surrounding his undisclosed location today, damaging several police cars....

 
...before fleeing the scene in a hail of gunfire from the stunned and disorganized officers...


Eyewitness reports have confirmed that the key person of interest was in fact behind the wheel of the fleeing car, although he appeared to be texting furiously, while his passenger...


 
...described as a young male in his early teens wearing a C-SPAN t-shirt, was apparently attempting to steer from the passenger seat. 


 
This message has since appeared on the Twitter social network, although at this time Three Beers Later has been unable to positively confirm its authenticity...



Law enforcement officials have speculated that the suspect may be attempting to link up with another person of interest in the case, whose nautical connections might be used to get both parties outside the US territorial limits to an undisclosed foreign location with potentially problematical extradition requirements...

TWITTER CRASH SCANDAL WIDENS!

Police and DHS officials surround an undisclosed location in relation to Thursday morning's "global crash" of the Twitter social network, as new information comes to light on the prime suspect....
"We're taking this matter very, very seriously," stated DHS head Janet Napolitano.  "Especially in light of the most recent information.  This is potentially a bad, bad man.  This is not some two-bit convicted bomber or cyberstalker who brags about his concealable handguns.  This is someone who has attended multiple Tea Party events and a very large number of functions where Republicans were present, as well as being a member of some fringe Christian cult."


If they see the suspect, citizens are advised not to approach him, as "he may behave erratically if he suspects they have beer money on them."
In what may be a connected story, Naval Criminal Investigation Services are looking to talk to a known associate of the prime suspect, a retired naval officer, concerning the disappearance of a dozen Tomahawk TLAN-N missiles in the aftermath of the fire aboard the USS Miami...

 The missiles were ostensibly removed from the submarine as a security measure while it is drydocked, but upon inspection of the Form 2063, or "hand receipt" signed for the release of the missiles, the receiving indidivual had described the nukes as "party favors."

"Certainly this concerns us," said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.  "Especially since we don't know which party the suspect favors." Nevertheless, Panetta insisted there was little reason to fear misuse of the devastating weapons.
"Someone would have to know several obscure and largely outdated programming languages to bypass the safety locks on the warheads and targeting systems," Panetta said.  "Luckily, there are very few people out there with that kind of arcane computer expertise..."

Say What?!


 WalMart likes to present itself as "America's store," the "store for the "common man..." but sometimes they have a strange way of showing their affection for the customer base that has taken them to the top of the retail heap.

OK, sure, WalMart's customers can be sartorially and dietetically exceptional, as is evidenced by all those "people of WalMart" photo threads online... But dammit, WalMart, these people are giving you their money (or EBT cards).  A little courtesy wouldn't kill you.

It's bad enough that your in-house clothing line is called "Faded Glory", a subtle little dig by your Chinese suppliers that I guess we're supposed to be too clueless to get, but when you put out your annual line of festive 4th of July wear, what message exactly are you trying to send to your customers here....?
