    Been down this road before with your type. You see what your masters on Fox tell you to see.

    Too much Red Kool-Aide tea, I guess.

    But you keep after that Al Gore...and maybe they'll reward you with a seat at the table.

    The government is well known for guaranteeing loans that won't be paid back. Did they think Solyndra would pay back? Maybe, but they were obviously mistaken.

    So, you are saying that alternative fuels cannot compete in the market place. Since they cannot, you are willing to have the government hand out guaranteed loans to companies who cannot compete. No wonder the Federal Government is a fiscal disaster.

    You are embarrassing your side of the argument. I appreciate your help, but you really don't have to assist me.

    i think it is shortsighted to spend trillions of dollars to maintain access to the remaining reserves of a finite resource. we should be innovating the next energy solution instead. there is a legitimate role for both public and private money in this endeavor.

    The only way you are going to get private money in real terms getting into these energy schemes, is if liberal policy of artificially choking off domestic supply of oil, and ability to produce it is abandoned. This is transparent.

    If it takes trillions to take the oil and gas out of the ground, it will make trillions plus some for the oil companies and it should not cost the taxpayers a dime. No one is saying that innovation should be stopped with regards to the next energy solution.

    Re: Solyndra to Declare Bankruptcy

    1 out of 4 restaurants fail or change hands in the first year, and 3 out of 5 do so within the first 3 years. How come someone isn't picking on the spectacular failure of one particular restaurant and extrapolating that as proof that the industry is doomed?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I don't know, is America being forced to use restaurants instead cooking at home due to an artificial shortage of cooking oil or something?


    Bad analogy.
