No argument here... I think it's a crock how much our own govt has wasted on these type of boondoggles... Even though this one didn't get its money from Obama's stash, I'm sure plenty of local and state public money was lost.

I really like Mark Levin..
Prolly wont run,,, but Like the way he thinks...
I work with a guy right now, that harps all the time that voting is a waste of time, because we are all just circlin the drain anyway... He says America is hopeless.
He makes fun of me everyday. Calls me a gun toatin blind Patriot. Calls the Constitution a shriveled up old piece of worthless paper..
He Hopes for Failer in the United states...
Just a miserable OLD dude..
Silicon based plants for PV like this require high amounts of energy to be put into making them, there is a great amount of materials lost as dust when they make the wafers for the panels. New thin films do not have the efficiency of those types but are cheaper and getting better. All of these companies try and jump in but it is cheaper to make overseas for this old tech. We need to invest in the future not the past. Just .02 though.

Only way the Dems don't nominate Hillary is if another Obama shows up, which isn't likely.
Look for the GOP to screw it up once again by nominating a "moderate," which they have done in every election since Ronald Reagan left office. They won with Bush, but just barely, and that was against looney tunes Al Gore; every other nomination has been a disaster (yes, including GHWB).
Winning ticket for GOP: Perry/Rubio. Won't happen, but it would decimate Hillary.
Not sure Jindal would run with a Democrat, though....

I might theorize that personal freedom encourages innovation ... the freedom to think outside of the box.
LOL! I do think that Christie has too many views that are non-conservative. And for all his attempts to act "savvy", he certainly got sucked in by Obama over Sandy. A photo-op just before the election, was NOT a smart thing to begin with. And to think that Obama REALLY would make things happen for NJ was ultimate naivete.

Obama still glad-hands Christie, but there are a LOT of people in NJ who still do NOT have public services. Not to mention that union rules are applying to the reconstruction work in NJ.
Personally, I think Christie has tasted power, and likes it too well.
Jindal/Rubio might be a better match. After that Rubio/Cruz?
Walker/Rubio Thats the ticket.
Carl Rove's ticket because he is a rino.
They could even be switched and he wouldn't care because he gets a 1960's Democrat, little r republican, and a true rino.
