CBS News: 11 more Solyndras

 

So the money went out that door?

And counting. Job creation the Washington way or, how many pies does Al Gore have his fingers in?

CBS News counted 12 clean energy companies that are having trouble after collectively being approved for more than $6.5 billion in federal assistance. Five have filed for bankruptcy: The junk bond-rated Beacon, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy and Solyndra.

According to CBS News, Beacon Power, a “green energy storage company,” received $43 million from the government. Standard and Poor’s had given the project a rating of “CCC-plus.”

    How many pies does Al Gore have his fingers in? How many fingers does our inventor of the Internet, Academy Award winning, Nobel Prize recepient friend have. Starting with Harvard Grad Ted Kaczinski; George W. Bush; Barack Obama; Mr. no, you can’t regulate derivatives, Larry Summers; it’s none of your business what we do with your tax dollars at the Fed, Ben Bernanke; and working our way all the way down to no, I didn’t know that if you modify things slightly it wouldn’t be a violation of copyright law, what’s a paper trail, manufacturer of fake dinosaurs, friend Marisa Noel. You have to wonder what they’re teaching those people in there. Beautiful campus, though.
