    I hadn't thought about Germany's experience with the solar idiocy. Why is it that the Ecomentalists and Obamaphiles are willing to repeat a known failing path? Seems a case of repeating serious stupidity to me.

    You don't have to look as far as Germany - just look north to Ontario, Canada, where our idiotic government has gone full in on solar and wind power, plastering giant wind monstrosities where nobody wants them, paying exorbitant rates to those willing to foul their land with the things, increasing our electricity rates by double and triple with increases projected out for years, mothballing all coal plants claiming that solar and wind will replace that production yet having to build new gas fired plants all over the place because solar and wind aren't reliable, selling off excess power at a loss to neighbouring jurisdictions because of commitments to pay for solar and wind first even if it's not needed, and driving manufacturing out of the province because electricity rates are no long competitive in a province where electricity rates were always an asset.

    It is absolute lunacy.

    Yes, really. Where is the demand for this? Or is the government going to just blow our money on this, without anyone willing to buy it?

    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!
    Upon further review, this seems to be another Obama made disaster.

    My guess is that they are catering to the base and influencing 50,000 voters. The white house does nothing without a political agenda. Obviously, there is no business reason for this program.

    I don't know, but it seems like every time the government gets involved, the price for energy goes up. It is almost like the government loves to sock it to the little people. Make them pay more for gas, pay more for cars with all the EPA stuff, remove cheap coal from power plants to make us pay more for electricity, and on and on.

    Perhaps the government should let the market rule, supply and demand. I haven't the faintest idea what the demand for solar panels is, probably not too high here in the states as I read about Solendra and a couple of other producers going bankrupt and out of business. I think if there was a demand for them, private companies would be making them. But then the government can always to what it does, make it mandatory to buy solar panels to create the demand at triple or more of the cost of regular energy sources.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You hit the nail on the head. How could anybody possibly be against the government picking winners and losers in private business? I can't think of a single Solyndra...er, I of course mean, solitary reason why anyone would possibly object to this plan.

    Yes, if we wanted solar panels, we would demand them. We certainly don't need the government getting involved and training people, putting our money into these companies, and then having them fail and lose our money because there is no demand! I just can't believe they are pulling this crap again. I DON'T WANT THE GOVERNMENT INVESTING MY TAX DOLLARS IN SOLAR PANELS!

    One, they don't know what the hell they are doing, and two, they already tried and failed. So what, they are doing the same thing again? I know Obama is an idiot, but jeez.

    If the government is good at one thing, it's doubling down on failure. Solar panels are so far from an isolated example of this phenomenon that it's truly sad.

    I think you misunderstand. You think government is in the business of addressing the common good. It, however, thinks it is in the business of maintaining power and control. You and government aren't on the same page. This is a political program. Nothing common sensical about it.
