Solar energy company Solyndra LLC was visited by President Obama during a recent trip in May to California. Obama praised the solar industry while he spent everyone else’s carbon credits for his trip.
Today, at 5 am it gathered night shift employees for an emergency meeting and had them shut down all equipment. The employees were told Solyndra was out of money and was going to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The taxpayers (that means you and I) recently spent $500 million to guarantee a loan for Solyndra. This is in addition to the $1 billion in private investments.
So $1.5 billion later Solyndra is shutting down operations and locking its employees out of its Fremont, California plant. This will also hurt Fremont’s financial situation as there are a lot of local businesses that depend on Solyndra employees.
This information was first released by a caller on Whistleblower Wednesday on the Brian Sussman Show on August 31, 2011. You can hear Brian on KSFO in San Francisco.
President Hugo Chavez Frias was greeted with cheers in Copenhagen when he stood up and accused the United States of not doing enough to combat global warming. He further berated America and received a standing ovation. Read more »
The Copenhagen Global Warming summit should have been held in Amsterdam. Amsterdam was warmer and the attendees could have smoked their pot, hash and whatever else they were smoking legally. Yes, it seems like they were partaking of some type of mind-altering substance with all of the goings-on. Read more »
We are still being bombarded with requests to reduce populations by not being greedy and not having more than one child. Obama’s socialized health care bill, if adopted, will require doctors to talk to parents and perspective parents to “increase the time between pregnancies” – in other words – reduce the number of children. If Obamacare is passed, Jon and Kate will be in more trouble than they are now. Read more »
Back in the 1960’s, the communist sympathizers came up with a way to make a country easier to take over. They spread vicious lien that the world was out of space and we would destroy ourselves if we added any more people.
I remember when the population of the world reached 3 Billion and the liberal alarmists were predicting doom. Now we have a population over double and the earth is spinning just fine under God’s guiding hand. Read more »
I was thinking (and that can be quite dangerous in certain situations) of what to write for my 500th post at Liberal Fair.
I like racing and thought about the Daytona 500 at the Daytona International Speedway, the Indianapolis 500, and from my home state, the Pennsylvania 500. If I wrote a post on these races, I would probably get excited and breathe out more carbon dioxide than I usually do, so the races were eliminated.
For a more sedate and less carbon-producing items, I thought about playing 500, visiting memory lane by looking at an old Commodore Amiga 500 computer, or perusing the list of top 500 Green Supercomputers, but I have enough computers in my life and I like Spades, Hearts, Canasta and double-deck Pinochle a lot more.

You will pull your car into a biomass station. Maybe one will be named Freedom of Choice Biomass. You pay them to fill up your car. In fact, businesses may open up their own service stations. A rancher could just give you a ration of s&*%, oh sorry, a ration of biomass. Read more »
Now, combine this with what Roe vs. Wade really meant: to limit “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” Too bad the liberal SCOTUS judge-for-life Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not elaborate on which groups were included in those populations. Yes, that quote came directly from Ruth’s Lips. Read more »
So since the military needed to hit liberals, errr… enemy targets, develop technology using the brightest minds that our colleges (not liberal at that time) possessed. They also needed secure communications over long distances. Private industry took that technology and we wind up taking that large house of a computer, shrinking it and making it billions of times more powerful and a company named Apple can sell the iPhone for a few hundred dollars.

Our lives have been irreparably changed by military technology. Just take your phone/pda/Blackberry/iPhone. You are bound to answer it and it can wind up running your life, and it all started out with the military’s need to be able to accurately hit a target with their big artillery.
ENIAC was the first computer and it was specifically designed to solve the ballistic trajectory equation and it was as large as a small house. Let me explain. Read more »
