Crony Socialism At Solyndra

“I have to clip coupons so Solyndra can have Disney whistling robots” – Dana Loesch

And launder money for the Democrat party…

Solyndra’s lawyers major Obama, Democratic donors | The Daily Caller.

Several senior lawyers at law firms that advised the now-failed solar company Solyndra from its beginnings and during the lead-up to its bankruptcy, are major donors to the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama.

During the loan guarantee approval process, law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati represented Solyndra. As the Washington Times reported, the firm skated away with $2.4 million from Solyndra’s coffers before the solar panel manufacturer went bankrupt. Taxpayers wrote that $2.4 million check via the stimulus, or the “Recovery Act.”

The Face of Leftist Violence

Since they didn’t print his pic I thought I’d add one, what a cunt…

Member of the Mob

A boor with no shame – Brian Hutchinson | National Post

Darren Pearson says he had a swell time Monday night, pushing around police officers and intimidating patrons of the Vancouver Club, each of whom had paid $500 to hear former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney speak. “It was so much fun,” Mr. Pearson said from his home Wednesday. “I can’t tell you how much fun I had. I was laughing my ass off, jumping into that mosh pit.”

And the hapless Vancouver Club employee, whom Mr. Pearson is accused of assaulting with a chokehold? Well, whatever. Mr. Pearson isn’t about to make amends, much less apologize to the man who received minor injuries. Mr. Pearson admits he is the 51-year-old male whom Vancouver police arrested and charged after his alleged attack on the employee Monday night. But he isn’t prepared to discuss that in detail; he’s waiting to speak to a lawyer before his initial court appearance, still to be scheduled.

What do you do when you blow more than $500 billion on a green scam? Why you do it again only bigger this time…

An Armed Society Is A Polite Society

We need a 2nd amendment here…

Gun crime continues to decrease, despite increase in gun ownership | The Daily Caller.

Despite increases in gun ownership, gun crimes continued to decrease in the United States for the fourth straight year in 2010, according to the FBI.

The FBI recently released its Crime in The United States statistics for 2010. Overall, murders in the U.S. have decreased steadily since 2006, dropping from 15,087 to 12,996. Firearms murders — which made up 67 percent of all murders in the U.S. in 2010 — have followed this trend, decreasing by 14 percent.

At the same time that firearms murders were dropping, gun sales were surging.

What Statists Dream About

Who has that power Governor?

Turns out Gov. Perdue was actually serious about suspending congressional elections | The Right Scoop.

You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things.

I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover.

I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.

This might not be a big deal on its own but:

Peter Orszag calls for less democracy, more rule by elite technocrats

To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.

Primary Watch

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”, Go Hillary…

Blacks leave Obama – TheHill.com.

Behind the president’s whining to the Black Caucus, begging them to “quit grumbling,” is a decline in his personal popularity among African-American voters that could portend catastrophe for his fading reelection chances.

According to a Washington Post/ABC News survey, his favorability rating among African-Americans has dropped off a cliff, plunging from 83 percent five months ago to a mere 58 percent today — a drop of 25 points, a bit more than a point per week!

The Left Doesn’t Understand Irony

Note to the sane: “Considering race, gender, ethnicity, national/geographic origin and other relevant factors” for students applying to California colleges is ok but “considering race, gender, ethnicity, national/geographic origin and other relevant factors” at a political bake sale is racist. Now you know…
