We can add the Vehicle Production Group (VPG) to the long list of central planning failures by the Federal government, proof again that national control is a recipe for waste, fraud, and abuse with your hard earned dollars. You’ve probably heard of Soyndra ($500 million), Fisker ($192 Million), and there are dozens of others.  Well […]

WTF.gov

by Steve MacDonald December 4, 2012

Your government floods the AM band with public service announcements (PSA’s).  Back in the day I used to have to read them when I did radio in High School.   We didn’t have them pre-recorded.  But now they have them canned and you can just play them with a mouse click or program them into the […]

Another Bad Week For Obama – Solyndra Knocked on The West Wing Door

by Steve MacDonald August 3, 2012

Bad Jobs numbers, people entering the workforce can’t find employment…and hey, it looks like Obama’s Chief of Staff Bill Daley was briefed about Solyndra’s impending demise six months before it happened and before the White House approved the loan restructuring. So the White House knew about the impending failure, and decided that the major PR […]

Mittz Romnel – The Deseret Fox??

by Mike June 1, 2012

Reading the headlines this morning, I noted that Romney had staged an event at the location of one of Obama’s epic failures, right in the heart of weirdly capitalist but Democrat Silicon Valley. Reading further, I noted this quote from The Standard-Examiner: Romney’s visit to Solyndra was unusually secretive, with the campaign closely guarding details […]

Evil Energy Speculators

by Steve MacDonald May 30, 2012

Thanks to commenter JackL for the reminder; that Jeanne “no oversight” Shaheen, Barack ‘Boondoggle’ FauxBama and the Democrats have always relied on the lie that rising energy prices were the result of “Evil Oil Speculators.” Evil Speculators…speculators… Isn’t what Mr. Obama, Secretary Chu, and Senate Energy Committee maven Greene Jeanne Shaheen have done, energy speculation?  […]

The ‘Bain’ Of Green Boondoggles

by Steve MacDonald May 30, 2012

Following Skip, who followed me, here is White House Propaganda Minister Jay Carney attempting to articulate the differences between private venture capitalism (Romney/Bain/private money/80% success) and Green Venture Corporatism (Obama/Cronyism/ Public money/ Billions lost for nothing). From Allahpundit c/o Hot Air For one thing, Bain evidently did due diligence on the companies it bought instead […]

Ask Jeanne Shaheen – Where’s The Oversight?

by Steve MacDonald May 29, 2012

According to this video (from Obama Isn’t Working.com) Mr. Obama has blown through $16 billion ($16,000,000,000.00) on public equity green energy gambles that have cost jobs and lost our money, much of it to Big Obama donors, and cronies. So here’s a question?  New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen cut her teeth in her first Senate […]

WH Knew Before Solyndra Workers Flew…

by Steve MacDonald January 16, 2012

The Solyndra Scam continues to develop and Hot Air has the dropon the latest document dump from the White House.  That’s Ed Morrissey’s headline up there.  And this is all just another political cover up courtesy of the Democrat party.

This sounds like a great example of private industry vs a bloated Government

by Skip December 27, 2011

Democrat Green Graft Stops Continuing Resolution

by Steve MacDonald September 22, 2011

If the Democrats had passed a budget we wouldn’t be doing this at all. If the left in Congress had not broken the law and refused to write or pass a budget we would not be here. If the demolition party had not obstructed every effort by Republicans to pass a budget, to eliminate the need for continuing resolutions, there would be no debate about refunding the government every few months.

It’s Not Easy Being Green…

by Steve MacDonald August 31, 2011

In a profanity strewn diatribe before the Aspen Institute, Gore said mean things about scientists who must be on the payroll of some arch-nemesis bent on brainwashing everyone into letting the evil genius destroy the planet. This, as opposed to all the “scientists” (economists, journalists, confidence men) who have been hiding the decline or crowding out dissent to keep the billions in taxpayer dollars rolling in to keep them “on message.”
