    Speaking of Jon Stewart sure hope you saw the video on Solyndra but what the hell it was only 530 MILLION dollars of taxpayer money.

    Wow, that's about 3/4 of what the Iraq war cost ... PER DAY ... in 2007.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    As pointed out in a post above me, 530 million dollars is nothing, not even a percent out of our 14.8 trillion dollar debt. Also, he goes on to say that it was only 1% of the money loaned. I highly doubt Obama did this to merely give the CEO's money, I mean he is president, that would be uncovered...

    That is a start, pay attention to Sun Power which was 1.2 billion along with a few other "green" companies. That isn't the role of govt. to risk taxpayer dollars on start up companies. If there is money to be made there the private sector will make that investment. Again another misuse of govt. power

    The government can do whatever it wants with its money. You know why? Because we as the voter can dictate to them what we want them to spend it on. The government is an ever changing thing, so get over the constitution.

    "its money?" Wow, is that what you are learning in school? Where does the government get its money? The voter didn't dictate to the govt. to "invest" in Green energy and that is why the Obama approval rating today is 38%

    Its money? Really? Nothing compared to what we spend on the war in the middle east. Not to mention Americans actually die. Who started that war BTW? I think the government should invest in companies.

    Americans actually died to give you the right to make a fool out of yourself. They deserve a thank you. What did the waste of money on Solyndra provide?
