Below are a few mini-rants that I found interesting. Since
money is no object for this administration we’ll start with
a couple of rants about where our money is going.
As part of the stimulus package green energy projects have been
given billions of dollars in federal grants. Now that doesn’t sound so bad does it? It puts our citizens to work and allows American Companies to make money also.
Pyron Wind Farm recieved a grant of $121.9 million this month.
How much will that help the economy? Hard to tell since the
registered owner of said windfarm is a German ulility company.
Barton Wind Farm, Farmers City Wind Farm, Barton Chapel Wind
Farm, and Bull Creek Wind recieved a combined total of $332.32
million in federal grants. They are owned by a Portuguese cleantech
spin off called Iberdrola Renovables.
Congressman John Boozeman of Arkansas provided proof that ACORN
has recieved over $53 million in funding since 1994. His proof
comes from the
Office of the Minority Leader and analysis done there. The Wall
Street Journal claimed that one third of the 1.3 million voter
regirstration cards turned in by ACORN in the 2008 election
What is going on with TV news lately? Besides falling all over
themselves to get their daily dose of Obamaisms the Today Show got
really weird today. I honestly don’t care if Mackenzie Phillips
had sex with her father or not but the Today show spent way too
much time on the subject for my liking. If this is news then
I don’t think I’ll be watching much.
Comments are always welcome.
