    His opining doesn’t carry any more weight than yours does without back up. Go back to grasping for straws, maybe something will come floating by that you can get a grip on, this non- case sure as hell isn’t it.
    Do you have a point? Up to now I've missed it. Thanks

    The only thing i have seen is his opinion on a timeline,the trouble i have with "his opinion" is it conflicts with a link i supplied that says the following.

    <-In late 2007, Solyndra was one of 16 clean-tech companies deemed eligible for $4 billion worth of loan guarantees from the U.S. Department of Energy. Tesla Motors, the Silicon Valley electric carmaker, and Oakland's BrightSource Energy, a builder of solar-thermal plants, also made that list.>

    note the bolded parts.

    That's not some scandal. Of course some of the companies that get these loans won't make it. That's just how the economy works. Same happens to any lender. You might think the government shouldn't be loaning money or you might not like renewable energy or whatever, but it isn't some scandal, it's just a policy you don't like.

    Of course!

    Giving away millions of dollars to private individuals is not a scandal at all, it's just the policy of the Obama Administration!

    I like it a lot. What's a guy gotta do to get a piece of that action?

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration restructured a half-billion dollar federal loan to a troubled solar energy company in such a way that private investors — including a fundraiser for President Barack Obama — moved ahead of taxpayers for repayment in case of a default, government records show.

    The government has always given loans and grants and whatnot to all kinds of organizations... You might not like that, and that is totally your right and we can debate that all you like. But it isn't like it is illegal or scandalous or something. It's just a policy decision that you disagree with.

    That just says that the investors in the company get paid out before the government gets paid back on its loan. Not sure why you think that is scandalous. Loans have different terms about that stuff. For a loan designed to kick off a company and trigger investors to invest in it would seem to make sense to give the investors more security.

    That one of the investors is a fundraiser for Obama obviously doesn't matter. There are probably 1000s of investors.
