    Default Whoops Here We Go Again

    Seems another solar panel company announced they are going into bankruptcy today. Geez everything O puts his finger on goes belly up.

    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Ain't that a shame.
    These companies should have to comply with PAC rules, they just cycle grant money back to O's campaign.

    As SBjet says, these aren't investments in green energy as much as they are opportunistic payments from the US Treasury (our tax dollars) to the Kenyan's campaign contributors.

    Interesting list nOv1c3


    One name stuck out as odd as I scanned through it.

    Johnson Controls.

    Are you certain they declared bankruptcy?

    Mitt Romney said it best in the first debate:
    "Mr. President, a good friend of mine said that you don't pick the good and the bad investments, you pick the all the bad ones!!"

    That was highly amusing- but the list above may not be realistic.

    If one biggie is off then how many others?

    Not changing O's failure here- just calling into to question the legitimacy of this particular list.

    I like checking things before accepting/ or pushing them as fact.

    I just read their balance sheet and I dont think they filed for bankruptcy.

    Unless someone can show me where they have- the list although amusing is bogus.

    Obama has a lousy record WITHOUT embellishing it.

    Looks like J.C. is taking a big gamble on A123, I guess they learned something from the LAME one. Maybe this is how they got tangled up in this mess.


    "A123 today said Johnson Controls (JSI) will help finance the filing by buying A123's automotive business assets for $125 million. As part of the transaction, A123 will receive $72.5 million from Johnson Controls to continue operating during the process"

    I don't think Johnson Controls has filed for bankruptcy , They may be having other issues , Only the ones marked with the (*) Have filed for bankruptcy

    I saw the same thing. Thought WTF!!!
    All those companies recieved grant money from the Obama admin for green energy projects, research etc. Only the ones with a * on their names filed BK. Damn, for a second I thought, "wait a minute, don't I own some JC stock"?. But no, not for some time now.

    Default It clearly states at the bottom of the list

    *Denotes companies that have filed for bankruptcy.

    I read the list and recognized companies I held in the past and present and thought the same thing until I read what the asterisks were denoting.
    The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud

    Dr. Steven Chu reminds me of Mork, from Mork & Mindy. For those who are old enough to remember that show.

    On one Mork found an egg threw it into the air and yelled "Fly Be Free" the egg went you would expect.
    Strait to the floor and broke.
    Much like Chu with our money, "Fly Be Green" go bankrupt!
