"Project SolarStrong’s structuring and its review by the DOE has required the efforts of more than 100 people, thousands of hours of work, and more than $3 million of investment by our company and our financing partners over the last eleven months. Halting the project will mean sacrificing more than $1 billion of private investment into economically hard-hit military communities throughout the United States.
It would also mean the loss of jobs we believe the project would create, many of which would have gone to veterans and the family members of our active duty military servicemen and women. We believe that the valuable work done to move the SolarStrong project to completion should not be lost because of the Solyndra bankruptcy."
After his presidency, but before his election to Congress in 1830, John Quincy penned several essays dealing with one of the many Russo-Turkish Wars. In these essays, we see a cogent, informed portrait of the threat that Islam has posed throughout world history:
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).
Observe that Adams not only documents the violent nature of Islam, in contrast with the peaceful and benevolent thrust of Christianity, he further exposes the mistreatment of women inherent in Islamic doctrine, including the degrading practice of polygamy.
A few pages later, Adams again spotlights the coercive, violent nature of Islam, as well as the Muslim’s right to lie and deceive to advance Islam:
The precept of the koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force (Blunt, 29:274).
Obama inherited a lower debt level… trillions lower… and a lower unemployment rate…nearly half. Chronically, he misses the entire point of even having a president: one who pulls all factions together to deliver resolution to problems, not excuses for personal incompetence.
But Standard & Poor's Managing Director John Chambers said there's "lots of blame to go around."
He agreed with several officials that the environment in Washington is "dysfunctional," [doesn’t mention the Tea Party which is not an official political party] and said the fact that the dysfunction [the inability of the President and his Democrats to refrain form naming unofficial political parties as culpable…chronic blame-laying beyond the rational] to put the United States within hours of hitting its debt ceiling was a driving factor in the downgrade decision. The second factor, he said, was the country's "fiscal trajectory."
Simply stated, the President’s inability to cohere the Congress, coupled with the absence of a viable plan to manage a sound fiscal policy resulted in an historic credit downgrade on Obama’s watch. In the corporate world, the shareholders would be demanding that the person at the top step aside and let someone with experience take over…while there’s still time.
The Democrats are either proving that they can’t comprehend the S&P Report as written or that they lack the willingness to tell the truth. Both may be applicable.
Any business that lost this much customer approval would be out of business. Now we understand more fully that it is we, the American public, that are the indentured servants of those that continually fail, yet whom we continually pay to do so.
WOW! Talk about ‘merit pay’! 82%… think if they can’t get the job done, then they don’t deserve the paycheck.
President Obama went to the American public via TV, figuring that if they were sufficiently ignorant of the facts to vote for him in the first place, then they are likely continuing in their ignorance of what’s really going on with the nation's over-maxxed credit cards and what it’s going to do to our country’s credit score. In his own words:
"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen,"
“What I think is underappreciated until now is a possible outcome whereby the debt ceiling is increased, debt default is avoided, but one of the rating agencies feels compelled to downgrade America’s AAA because of insufficient agreement on medium-term fiscal reform,” Mr. El-Erian said.
If the country were to lose its vaunted rating, the federal government, companies, homeowners and innumerable others would see their costs skyrocket — a situation that would certainly send the markets into a downward spiral.
"What happens in the future depends on the cause of the aerosols," says Daniel. "If it's volcanic, it depends on what volcanoes do. If its sulfur, it depends on what our pollution is."And this comes just weeks after scientists recognize that volcanoes are 100 million times (100,000,000X) more influential on climate than previously understood. Besides clearing the air a bit, to see climate for what it is, this process also discloses “science” for what it isn’t: an authoritative source for knowledge, but rather a systematic process for the alleviation of ignorance. And as such, we have a lot to learn. After all, if we actually knew it all, science –the systematic process by which we relieve ourselves of our ignorance- would serve no purpose.
The paper does not address how man-made versus natural activities contribute to aerosol creation, which they say is a question to be explored in further studies.
As for aerosols' impact on climate models used to estimate future global warming, according to the study, "climate model projections neglecting these changes would continue to overestimate the … global warming in coming decades if these aerosols remain present at current values or increase."
Credit rating agencies Fitch, S&P and Moody’s have all warned that without significant deficit reduction being enacted now, the United States’ gold-plated Triple-A credit rating is being reviewed for a downgrade. Significantly, S&P gauges a 50 percent likelihood of a downgrade in the next three months alone.
In fact, both Standard & Poor's and Moody's say the real threat to the US government's AAA rating comes from Washington's refusal to start living within its means.America's real credit problem--Stephen Meister - NYPOST.com
The big problem: President Obama's (and Democrats', in general) ideological resistance to spending cuts.
Why do we pay their salaries? If my TV repairman was this bad at his job, he’d have been long gone. With so much to lose and so much at stake, how does such incompetence gain so much power?
Standard & Poor's placed the U.S. rating on negative outlook on April 18 which meant a downgrade is likely in 12-18 months.
"They are worried they are having these ideological arguments while Rome burns," said Carl Kaufman, portfolio manager at Oster weis Capital Management in San Francisco.
“If you’re not going to pay us the smoking fines, then we don’t want your liquor tax dollars either. And just tell your employees to get on down to the unemployment office and sign up! There’s plenty of revenue to share!”
NO ! NO ! NO !
It’s GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE CAUSED BY MAN…even if volcanoes are 100 million times more causative than previously known. It’s still man that is doing the most. He just is. It has to be man. It just does.
Volcanoes may release particles that can cause changes in local and regional weather at rates up to 100 million times higher than previously realized.
1) Children Should Watch Violent Video games so that they become insensitive to destructive murder and mayhem. Schools will improve as children can better visualize dead students and teachers.
2) Men should marry men and women should marry women to further improve and propagate society by celebrating a group of people that identifies primarily with their sex organ’s usage that is not accommodated to any useful purpose in nature. But it IS natural. Depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.
3) Man has the power to change climate, as much as all of nature caused to occur before man even existed. Volcanic eruption and intense solar activity cannot match the power of man.
3) Obama has brought Change that has shown us why we should have Hope. The proof is in how the economy can be held back from its enthusiasm
4) Easter Bunnies hide eggs on the White House lawn.
The only “structural issue” is the structure of Obama’s mind, which keeps telling him to pass a law or regulation first and pick up the pieces later.
But what else can we expect from a guy who has never even successfully run a lemonade stand

Obama eliminated Pell grants and took over the college grant industry.
The last Republican budget was 2006 when unemployment was 4.6 and the deficit was 168 billion. In 2007 the democrats promptly double the budget after taking majorities. In 2008 the democrats destroyed three million jobs in two months following the minimum wage hike. Then in 2009 Bush never even SAW the budget because democrats were playing shenanigans in an election year and did their best to hide the budget from the public. The budget for 2009 was signed by Obama because it was so late. By 2009 democrats had unemployment up to 8%. Now in the fifth year of democrat budgets the deficit is 1.8 trillion and real unemployment (U6) is at 20%.
And don't forget the democrats forced banks to take bad loans until the system crashed and we got this recession. Lookup Community Re-Investment Act.
Members of Congress sue the President! Is this what it now takes to get the job done?
Now that’s a surprise !
“We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," ~Barack Obama, May 16, 2008
Sometimes you don’t need handwriting on the wall to see what’s going on. Flashing neon does quite nicely.
Obama would resign in Weiner’s situation. but not in his own. A Social Security number tied to someone else’s name, a foreign national for a father, precluding automatically eligibility to be president, and no records of US citizenship on file anywhere at the State Department. Only conjecture and reports….but no evidence in the public view. At least Weiner isn’t in breach of US law.
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, April 6, 1816
For decades, now, the al-Qaida leader has been identified as ‘Osama bin Laden’. So common this appellation has been, that it has succumbed to the perennial penchant to reduce his to an acronym: OBL.
Suddenly, as the White House seems to be gearing up for reelection, the loyal and obedient press has now chosen to ignore the time-honored OBL for the renaming of the dead foe, something for which, finally, a peace prize might find merit, as Usama, burying ‘Osama’ along with his weighted corpse at sea. Along with the traditional custom of dumping their dead loved ones into the ocean, as Obama has claimed, countering the outrage from the Muslim community, is it also time-honored traditional affection to rename the dead as well?
Maybe it’s just me but that seems to make the similarity to Obama with Osama, the only difference being the BS, a bit too glaringly obvious. Even my spell checker hasn’t been updated to this latest bit of propagandistically motivated newest spelling. Perhaps it’s because now, we no longer can be sure who the real OBL is, unless we should fear that he has been reborn as UBL. Wait and watch.
Perhaps the next update from MSFT will have this newest spelling inserted surreptitiously into the onboard dictionary; because right now, USAMA is underlined with red squiggles, raising the all-too-obvious questions, hardly blending in, unnoticed, like the insistence from the White House and the president that, prior to the release of his long form Birth Certificate, Obama (not Osama or Usama) didn’t have a long form Birth Certificate. Even Snopes.com had to change their official statement of proof to match the conflicting statement of proof. Sometimes I wonder if the random numbers chosen for the lottery each week have a greater probability of being more accurate than ‘statements released by The White House’.
As brilliant a speaker as his portrait painter is an artist. Both capture the essence with scintillating accuracy.
Evidence of evolution: the masses have grown weary and are moving on. With it becoming apparent, more so by the day, that is all seems to be sliding over the falls, what really will be lost, in the end?
When a company is run this poorly,the shareholders demand new leadership. We, the people, are the shareholders as well as the income stream for this company called the United States of America. If we don’t demand new leadership, then we deserve to be the third world nation we’re becoming…and some think by design. After all, it’s hard to imagine that many politicians being that incredibly inept.
Labor laws in China dictate that overtime should not exceed 36 hours per month. The report says that workers are usually subjected to 50 to 80 hours of overtime a month. In the Chengdu facility — where Foxconn employees put together the iPad — staff could expect a grueling 80 to 100 hours of overtime, on top of the 174 regular work hours.
Good to blog about, especially while using an iPad.
The Third time is the charm!
Along with this outstanding news, we learn that the IRS is opening a new social networking site.

What other job can one have where a background check is done by innuendo and third party “certifications” without paper proof? Even the soon-to-be-defunct Social Security department insists on seeing the paper… the real, full, department issued paper. Establishment by association is not acceptable proof to get a job in the US, according to Federal law. Why should the person hired as President be exempt from that law?
Like him or not, The Donald has won more than he has lost. Even those that don’t like him, respect him. Unfortunately, when it comes to Obama, even those that do like him, don’t respect him.
And he doesn’t get recalled because…why?
And so goes the theory of a “health care crisis”. The only crisis is how to keep people paying more before they die from natural causes… at the same alarming rate as their chimpanzee mimics.
To allow our possible opportunity to recover economically, while watching inflation, due to rising fuel prices, dampen as a result of the people of Libya wanting to drive their own bus, is not much different that going broke while eating out in restaurants, three meals a day, meanwhile, back at home, the fridge and pantry are stuffed to capacity.
America owns, in the ground on its mainland, more oil than is waiting to be pumped from the ground of all those countries whose civil unrest will drive our own turmoil at home. To not pump our own oil, while supplying the world as well, for profit, is nothing short of stupid or deliberate. Either way, change is in order. And the sooner the better.
"In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.
"Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators,"
Congress, here, seems to be using the same logical argument that any mugger uses to relieve an elderly retiree of their SS monthly check, while on their way to the bank.
So what’s new?
“When I was a County Commissioner in Oregon a constituent sent me a tape he shot at a Planned Parenthood production. They recruited and trained young teens as actors to bring their message to the public. Public school teachers organized carpools to get all the children they could to these events. The man that gave me this tape smuggled his video camera into the auditorium and was able to record everything said. The dialogue was written, of course, to appeal to younger teens, and was quite theatrical. They addressed pregnancy, abortion , and drugs, but it was a surprise to me they were advocating homosexuality, as well.
Children were barraged with rhetoric suggesting parents are not your best source for learning what is ethical and moral. The skit started as a word about child abuse, but bordered on Hitler type rhetoric to make the child more attracted to the State for guidance and leadership than their parents.
Different skits sent their message loud and clear to these kids, especially the one about homosexuality. "Your teen years are a time of discovery, so go out and try it!" That is a quote from what was said. I kept that tape for the same reasons the recent tapes were released. People need to know how dangerous this organization is to the fiber of this nation.”
No one should think that Planned Parenthood is anything but a ravenous cancer, devouring what shred of decency is left in this country. Funding PP is like sending money to the death camps of the holocaust. For those with eyes to see, it couldn’t be more obvious.
"The Obama administration has spoken cautiously about the future role of the Brotherhood, which has long been banned by Mr. Mubarak’s government, saying only that all parties must renounce violence and accept democracy. But one of the few near-certainties of a post-Mubarak Egypt is that the Muslim Brotherhood will emerge as a powerful political force." ~ NYTAccording to the tenets of Islam, this statement from our president is akin to telling the KKK that they’re cool as long as they allow black people to join and treat them with respect and diugnity.

"...fire can only possibly have been discovered by a conservative unworried by liberal health and safety regulations. Moreover, by learning to cook meat, Early man made it more digestible, meaning he had more energy available to develop not only his “brawnpower” but his brainpower. If Homo Liberalis had gotten his way, fire would have been banned as a dangerous substance, and we’d still be living in the trees, chewing natural, healthy, raw vegetables, burping contentedly, and being ruled by a loud, gossipy matriarchy of Oprahs and Streisands."
Just a year ago, Obama was in Egypt praising what they do, have done, and how well they’re doing it. all for the betterment and enlightenment of the world, setting the example all the way.
One wonders if he isn’t a bit anxious as of late.

If you ever thought that Eric Holder and the Obama administration had anything like integrity and honor as a code to follow, this should certainly dispel that myth. Outright collusion with the ACLU is not that for which our taxes should be paid.
"This is a matter of America's sovereignty and security, and every patriotic American must get involved," said Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center.
The organization, a national, public-interest law firm in Michigan, filed a brief in support of Arizona's law.
"If we can't defend our borders from attack by illegal immigrants, in time we will lose our country," Thompson said. "What confidence should we have in an attorney general who, without even reading the law, accused Arizona of racial profiling? Patriotic Americans must show they stand with Arizona in this matter."
After having gone to Egypt to praise the goodness and peacefulness of the Egyptian Muslims rooted in their Islamic faith as commanded by “the Holy Koran”, why on earth would Barack Obama fear that they would be anything other than good and peaceful?
MONTPELIER, Vt. — Train equipment froze, cars sputtered, schools canceled classes and cold-weather enthusiasts opted to stay inside Monday as a bitter blast of below-zero temperatures with promises of minus-50 wind chills gripped the Northeast.
The gasp-inducing cold tested the mettle even of New Englanders, who pride themselves on winter hardiness.
In Providence, it dipped to minus 1 early Monday, the first below-zero reading there in six years, the National Weather Service said.
When a planet is warming, there’s really no escape from it. Record breaking cold is about the best indicator of critical warming that there is, according to a consensus of scientists.
When you think about it, “science” is the methodical study of those things of which we are ignorant. Therefore, without ignorance, there is no use for science – it has no purpose beyond relieving ignorance. Therefore, to be a scientist, one must first profess sufficient ignorance to decide to devote one’s life to its absolution. So when we take a “consensus of scientists”, what we’re actually doing is polling the greatest number of those so sufficiently curious about their ignorance that they’ve devoted their lives to it and, as the most consciously aware of their ignorance among us, we should be making decisions according to their latest discovery. And hopefully before they discover that their ‘discovery’ was ignorantly informed and, subsequently, proven to be wrong.
Now that does sound reasonable.
Or we could simply look for proof before making profound declarations.

Is it really a “conspiracy” to want to see something that no one has ever proven to have seen when it’s existence is essential to the legitimacy of the President of The United States?
In this instance, the governor of Hawaii never said he ever saw the document he declared to set out to find. And his spokesperson calls those that question that which the seeker never claims to have found to be conspirators. That, in itself, sounds like a conspiracy to me.
"And this is not because we have done something. At some point - and I say this to you with all the passion I possibly can - the West has got to get out of what I think is this wretched policy, or posture, of apology for believing that we are causing what the Iranians are doing, or what these extremists are doing. The fact is we are not.Tony Blair gets it: Obama and his policy needs to go. And if Governor Abercrombie of Hawaii is right, there is no birth certificate in the world that will prevent his removal from office if the Supreme court does the right and just thing in the matter. So far, the head of the Elections Board for the state and their governor are right. There is no birth certificate in Hawaii for Barack Obama.
"The fact is they are doing it because they disagree fundamentally with our way of life and they will carry on doing it unless they are met with the requisite determination and, if necessary, force."
Mr. Obama pays no attention to the majority of the voters. By using EXECUTIVE ORDERS, he will go around Members of the United States Congress---both Republican and Democrat,according to an article by the United States Justice Foundation. He doesn't need your opinion or approval anymore than he thinks he's employed by you to preside over a capitalistic, democratic republic.

The New Year’s message from Islam: “In the name of peaceful relations we will kill you all!” At least that’s the message we get from any Muslim who is doing anything publicly. And denouncing these barbaric actions is not forthcoming in any significant way from "the “peaceful Muslims”
As Islam grows, non-Muslims die. America should expect the same as this practice is centuries old wherever this primitive cult is allowed to flourish with no sign of changing. Europe is rife with it.
Get rid of Islam or expect a violent end.
