The left and the environmentalist fanatics are stopping this nation from becoming energy independence with all their supposedly boondoggle green energy utopia----that never work. All they're doing is hurting the middle class and the poor. How sad!

The Iraq war will end up costing about $2 trillion. Don't lecture us about a $200 million investment.

200 million spent in one of two ways.... either another soylndra (my bet) or a study to tell us that the wave of the future is natural gas. Which is what we already know. Spend the damn 200 million on making it feasible to start being able to pull up to the natural gas pump.....

IMHO - the executives of Solyndra should have been arrested and tried for grand theft by fraud. They cheated everyone involved but themselves. The government should hire a lot more auditors to track and end these operations before they get out of control.

I'm glad you support America's multibillion dollar annual contribution to the Bin Ladens and other finacial patrons of the Tailban, Al-Qaeda and the Islamic Brotherhood. Nothing like that 5 dollar a gallon Saudi Soda in the old Gas Tank!
