  • How are Green Energy Grants Like Money Laundries

    11/29/2011 6:26:03 PM PST · by Fred Hayek · 2 replies
    So how is a green energy grant like a money laundry. A person of the correct political persuasion starts a sham business, with no intention of it being viable. The "business plan" has plenty of the politically correct buzzwords to get the attention of the politicians on one particular side of the aisle.The person scores some grant money, builds a Potemkin Village of a plant, and makes the necessary political contribution (with the grant money of course). He scores a political visit by a perpetually campaigning politician who is high up on the food chain (and on one particular side...

That was before he learned he would spend the rest of his life in prison for shooting convenience store clerk Sheila Myers in the face, killing her. That, too, didn't seem to faze him.
  • After Action Report - Al Franken at Edina MN Barnes and Noble.

    Al Franken was at the Edina Barnes and Noble today for a book signing/reading/Q&A for his latest book Truth. It pretty much amounted to the standard leftist Bush-bashing: no good happening in Iraq, there were no WMD's(wronng), no ties to Al-Queda (wrong), Bush has no interest in gradually handing over the mission to the Iraqis in order to make money for his Halliburton buddies, no interest in alt. energy sources/science/etc. Steady diatribe of "it's Bush's fault". Last part was going into the Stuart Smalley mode, calling Bush an alcoholic in denial and needing therapy. I did avoid barfing.

    By ROBERT A. HAMILTON Day Staff Writer, Navy/Defense/Electric Boat Published on 1/15/2005 New London -- The galley crew had started to serve lunch as the USS San Francisco checked its position against a global positioning system satellite, checked the water depth with its fathometer, and announced that the ship was going to dive, all routine operations aboard an attack submarine. Four minutes after it submerged, that routine was shattered one week ago today as the San Francisco crashed into an undersea mountain at more than 35 mph, sending sailors crashing into equipment and bulkheads and destroying the bow dome and...
