Six Years…

Posted: 13 May 2013 in Failure, Just Sayin'

…and nothing to show for it.

Yesterday was the sixth anniversary of my blog and I have 118 followers. That’s pathetic.
For you 118 that follow me, I appreciate it immensely.

Maybe it’s time to give up the ghost on this blog.
Hardly any comments are generated, and I’m thinking that this blog is a waste of my time.

I know if I devoted more time to writing it would get better, but not that much.

If there were more comments generated, then maybe I could see keeping it going, but there just isn’t enough to go on without that.

I’ll keep posting for a little while longer, but I’m running out of desire to do this. There’s no reward.
I would consider comments a reward, but that doesn’t happen much; 1575 of them in six years. That’s .003 comments per day.

This is a must see video over at Hot Air.

Video: Kira Davis’ open letter to MSNBC’s Toure

After Toure’s assertion that Joe Biden’s “chains” comment was not racial but Mitt Romney’s criticism of it and the tone of the Obama/Biden team somehow was, I was by turns annoyed at the hypocrisy, outraged at the crudity in which it was expressed, and saddened by the unrelenting desire of a portion of the commentariat on the Left to smear anyone who opposes Barack Obama and his policies as racists and haters. I’m glad that Allahpundit wrote the excellent post, rather than me; I needed more time to approach the issue rationally, and frankly to pray about it and for our nation.


…in North Las Vegas. Why is the government giving money to the green energy sector, when it is obviously a failing policy?

I ask myself that a lot about many of the things that government wastes our tax dollars on. But as long as the Senate is controlled by Democrats, shit like this is going to keep happening. Don’t get me wrong, there are RINOs that need to be purged as well.

This is yet another reason to go vote and fire every last one of these bastards and that includes the SCOAMF.

Amonix closes North Las Vegas solar plant after 14 months, heavy federal subsidies

By Hubble Smith

The Amonix solar manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, subsidized by more than $20 million in federal tax credits and grants, has closed its 214,000-square-foot facility about a year after it opened.

Officials at Amonix headquarters in Seal Beach, Calif., have not responded to repeated calls for comment this week, but the company began selling equipment, from automated tooling systems to robotic welding cells, in an online auction Wednesday.

A designer and manufacturer of concentrated photovoltaic solar power systems, Amonix received $6 million in federal tax credits for the North Las Vegas plant and a $15.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2007 for research and development.

Rene Kenerly, a former material and supply manager at Amonix, said the plant has been idle since May 1, when he was laid off. At its peak, the plant had about 700 employees working three shifts a day to produce solar panels for a utility in Amarosa, Colo., he said.


Excellent article on the failures of Obama…

The Optics of Obama’s Failures

By Christopher Chantrill

People are starting to worry that President Obama might be wobbling on his visionary “all of the above” program to bring on the green energy millennium, what with $5.00 gas in the Northeast states.

But don’t worry. Even though the administration will be changing its “optics” on energy by featuring the president reading his TelePrompTer in front of oil wells, the president is still on course, according to an Obama official.

In the coming days and weeks, the official said, Obama will continue a constant drumbeat where he touts his strategy — including his push for green energy — while responding to false attacks on issues about his record on domestic energy production.

Same old recycled bullshit. Same old retarded President. SCOAMF.

FACT CHECK: Obama pushes plans that flopped before

WASHINGTON AP – It was a wish list, not a to-do list.President Barack Obama laid out an array of plans in his State of the Union speech as if his hands weren’t so tied by political realities. There can be little more than wishful thinking behind his call to end oil industry subsidies – something he could not get through a Democratic Congress, much less today’s divided Congress, much less in this election year.

And there was more recycling, in an even more forbidding climate than when the ideas were new: He pushed for an immigration overhaul that he couldn’t get past Democrats, permanent college tuition tax credits that he asked for a year ago, and familiar discouragements for companies that move overseas.A look at Obama’s rhetoric Tuesday night and how it fits with the facts and political circumstances:

OBAMA: “We have subsidized oil companies for a century. That’s long enough. It’s time to end the taxpayer giveaways to an industry that’s rarely been more profitable, and double-down on a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising.”

THE FACTS: This is at least Obama’s third run at stripping subsidies from the oil industry. Back when fellow Democrats formed the House and Senate majorities, he sought $36.5 billion in tax increases on oil and gas companies over the next decade, but Congress largely ignored the request. He called again to end such tax breaks in last year’s State of the Union speech. And he’s now doing it again, despite facing a wall of opposition from Republicans who want to spur domestic oil and gas production and oppose tax increases generally.
