Solyndra program is making money

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/11/13/us-doe-loans-idUSKCN0IX0A120141113

 

Just for fun because I know it's all bad. Really, really bad.  If those communist electrons get into the grid and into you house it is worse than vaccination.

Re: Solyndra program is making money

You`ve heard the saying about restaurants haven`t you?  The first guy buys a restuarant with all new equpiment and goes broke and the bank sells out cheap, then maybe a couple others try it and go broke, selling out cheaper.  Finally at about the 4th sale the equpiment gets cheap enough that they can make a go of it.  Think of the US taxpayers as the "first restuarant owner".  But what do we care, pay it off with Benanke Bucks.

Too bad they don't sell gas. With all of this man made global warming climate change and disruption that dang dryer is sucking gas so hard I'm afraid it's going to suck the sides of the tanks in.

What was that about the government being a counterbalance to private industry? Just cracks me up. The union of government and industry is a fabulous thing when its going in the correct (in ones opinion) direction.

When I drove by Solyndra the grass and weeds were high and it looked like a very closed building.

Re: Solyndra program is making money

As related to the other post, you are conflating economics with political power- they overlap but they aren't the same thing.

 

I know in the world that long haired libertarian dreamers inhabit a magic glittery pink unicorn always fixes things but I'm not sold.

 

BTW, don't know that I'm fully in support but you'll never get into any sort of discussion on the matter when its been carefully turned into one of 3020's one worders for the three monkeys routine.

 

It is rather mild compared to the cellulosic ethanol fraud that was used to sell the grain ethanol program.

Re: Solyndra program is making money

Why are repubs SO intent on hating solar power? I don't understand they are so loyal to big oil. Every solar panel that supplies electricity to anyone is less oil that needs to be used. So what if it isn't practical in bumf*ck Iowa, it is in AZ, NM, TX, FL and many other places. The repubs seem to think if ANYTHING is 100% perfect for all, it isn't working and therefore, not worth the effort!

Ethanol...hello?

and looky what "socialist" France has done with nuclear      http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Country-Profiles/Countries-A-F/France/  

 

 

I`m for solar, but since the Sun doesn`t always shine, more storage technology, will be needed....technology that was refined in, ...oh I don`t know....the SPACE PROGRAM perhaps?????

 

Solyndra was crony capitalism at work.
