SUN – The 4.5 billion-year-old star at the center of our solar system has cooled and shriveled into a white dwarf despite receiving over $1 billion in loan guarantees from the United States Department of Energy.
The failure of the sun marks another disappointing outcome in a series of ill-fated solar energy investments by the federal government and one which is likely to have adverse long-term consequences for the billions of people who have relied on the sun for warmth and food.
President Barack Obama remarked Wednesday,
The failure of one G2V-class celestial body does not spell the end of green energy for the United States.
Much promise remains for the green economy. We must look ahead to a new dawn– er, a new day…
In her editorial “Amateur Hour,” Peggy Noonan quotes an unnamed Obama adviser in 2009 who says of the stimulus:
We should have spent more time thinking about where the money was being spent, rather than simply that there was this hole of a certain size in the economy that needed to be filled, so fill it.
Meanwhile, The Onion asks, Should The Government Stop Dumping Money Into A Giant Hole?
Obama has been relentlessly scolding the American public for our failure to embrace high-speed rail for over two years. He seems particularly upset that China has obtained something that has eluded the U.S.A. for nearly 120 years. Obama lamented in his jobs speech Thursday,
Building a world-class transportation system is part of what made us a economic superpower. And now we’re going to sit back and watch China build newer airports and faster railroads? At a time when millions of unemployed construction workers could build them right here in America?
The man is absolutely obsessed–
It’s OK, everybody. GE exited modular buildings in 2007, so Jeff Immelt won’t be upset.
Aww… The little guy is frustrated.
Would you agree that sending pitiful, whiny emails titled “frustrated” is unbecoming the American President?
And what is the purpose of this email, anyway? An exhortation to “call Congress”? Does he have a petition I can sign? Is there a bake sale scheduled to raise funds for poster boards and sharpies?
