We have spent many hundreds of billions so far on 0bama's green energy subsidies to big corporations like GE,.

0bama just keeps beating the same drum, over and over, like a sad little broken record stuck in the same groove "green energy..... green energy.....green energy". Our economy stalls, jobs are lost, the debt and deficit explode, and on and on goes the drum beat that all our woes can be cured by "shovel-ready" solar and wind energy subsidies, or $7,500 rebates on the GM Volt.

0bama whines about dependence on foreign oil, and yet he fights tooth and nail to prevent us from drilling for more domestic oil, by halting the drilling for domestic oil, or hindering the acquisition of it, or promising to sign an energy bill that will tax it.

President Obama yesterday outlined plans to spend about $59 billion in economic stimulus funds and $150 billion from the federal budget to promote what he calls America's "clean-energy future."

Obama Plans More Than $200 Billion in Clean-Energy Spending - washingtonpost.com

We do not need Washington getting their hands on another $200 billion slush fund, just so two years from now 0bama will tell us he wrong again. "Who knew" did not play out well last week either .... obama, what a putz.

Well naturally. My point is can you imagine how different things would have turned out if even 1/4 of the stimulus funds were given out to the people instead of state governments,banks, and private businesses?

These people keep going in circles, thinking the answer to jobs, is government redistribution of taxpayer money to their corporate and union cronies.

He needs to save that money.
Forclosuregate may have the banks running for another bailout if it blows up as bad as some think.

unfortunately by the time you got the business open, all that money would have been spent on government regulations, and you would have virtually no money with which to run the business.
