    White House announces plan to train 50,000 people, including veterans, to install solar panels

    I can not say how much I love this program! Job training, new jobs, and green energy! This is a great program, and I cannot think why anyone ccouldbe against this!
    Obama's holding up his part of the deal, paying back the IBEW for help putting him in the White House.

    That's all it is.

    I hope this doesn't dumb down America's electricians. Every four years (Presidental election time) the IBEW tries to increase it's union membership by fast tracking unqualified apprentice electricians as journeymen and you have these new journeymen electricians showing up on job sites who don't know how to pull wire.

    You have to ask how many IBEW electricians are sitting at home today waiting for a call from their union local that there's a job available ?

    Usually when you finish one project you're waiting weeks or even months for a new project to start up.

    If the government is going to spy on private citizens, I'd rather they spy on people I don't like instead of me.
    If the government is going to go to war, I'd rather they go to war with Israel instead of Iraq.
    If the government is going to regulate content on the airwaves, I'd rather they censor religion instead of cuss words.
    If the government is going to let the TSA run amok, I'd rather go through that x-ray thing like on Total Recall than get patted down. LOL

    The 13th amendment got repealed?! Holy ****!

    You forgot "filling potholes" and "building community libraries." I associate all of these things together with a totalitarian police state.

    Great, more taxpayer's money pissed away. Awesome idea! Lets destroy one industry to create another to replace it, and everything will run on solar energy and rainbows!!

    They will when gov't mandates require them; simply pass a tax law (like PPACA) that fines (adds taxes to) those without gov't approved solar panels installed.

    Are these moderate anti-IS more trustworthy to receive training and equipment? We do not want them to turn against us also just like ISIS do we?

    That doesn't answer the question. Does the solar panel industry need 50,000 more installers?
