  • Chinese solar stocks tumble, U.S. stocks mixed on new tariffs [View news story]
    Anyone who thinks there is some magic switch that can be thrown to convert to alternative energy sources is completely delusional. Here is a link to an IEA publication outlining the energy needs of the planet for the next 20 years. Liberals may find it a difficult read as it is based on reality.

  • EPA to propose power plant emission cuts [View news story]
    When all else fails, blame Bush or scream racism. You are a true, card carrying Liberal but you only continue to underscore your lack of comprehension with your posts.

    There was NEVER a surplus under Clinton. He came close in FY2000, but always ran a deficit. Clinton siphoned money from the SS funds and that made the debt numbers look better, but look at intra-government holdings and you can see how he cooked the books. http://1.usa.gov/1etzFik

    Under Clinton, there were PROJECTED surpluses, largely based on anticipated receipts during the dot-com era, but that turned out to be a bubble and the surpluses never materialized.

    I liked Clinton and he was one of my favorite presidents. One great thing I will say about Clinton is that if there was someone skilled in the art of compromise, it was Bill Clinton. This current idiot in the White House ignores the US Constitution on a daily basis and thinks he can bypass the legislative process, something that inherently dangerous, mostly for Americans but also for Obama.

    You left out additional elements of Obama’s legacy; record poverty rates, record number of Americans receiving government assistance, record low LFPR, record number of Americans who have given up hope of ever finding a job … and the list goes on. And of the jobs created under Obama, we have never had an imbalance like this of high paying jobs to low paying part-time jobs being created. They show up as positive numbers, but in reality, they’re nowhere as good as they look.

    Obama will go down in history as THE worst US President ever. With 70% of our economy driven by discretionary spending, no administration has done more to undermine our economy. Obamacare alone threatens to remove a significant portion of the amount of money Americans have for discretionary spending and it is simple math to project what will happen when you undermine something that drives 70% of our economy. Obama promised to save the average American $2,500 a year and had that happened, it would have fueled our economy like nothing we have ever seen before. But, the exact opposite is happening and Obamacare will undermine our economy like nothing we have ever seen before. When the downward spiral begins, there won’t be anything to stop it. The Fed is out of ammo.

    I will reiterate; the US has $200 Trillion in unfunded liabilities and this ‘administration’ can't produce a budget. It’s not that the US will be bankrupt in the future, we’re bankrupt now. Even the CBO says we are on an unsustainable path. I’m not sure what part of ‘unsustainable’ Liberals don’t understand.

    The guy from 1916 probably had some good ideas but I suspect the government refused to subsidize them?

    Our economy is already destroyed; no need to wait for anything there. We have roughly $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities and this 'administration' can't even produce a budget. What does moron #1 do? Add more weight to a country still on its knees.

    CO2 levels have spiked, temperatures have not. All the previous IPCC crap was based on hypothesis and projections, none have even come close to playing out the way the 'scientists' said they would.

    As I said, you lack the comprehension skills necessary to be an investor.

    "the EPA forecasts". The EPA has as much knowledge of economics as Goldman Sachs has about the environment.

    The US Chamber of Commerce predicts 250,000 jobs a year will be lost. Par for the course for Obama & clueless Liberals.

    963 days; I keep track of the day in my Excel trading ledger.

    Let's hope enough Americans grow a brain in November and take away his pen.

    It is politics when one person with a pen starts legislating.

    Agree well said. However, one caveat; never post anything like that in a TSLA thread!!

    Alternative energy will happen in time, but there are no magic Liberal switches that can make it happen overnight without destroying something else, namely the economy. Or maybe I should say what is left of our economy.

    You Liberals destroy you touch. You have the track record of an F5.

    The temperatures on Mars are rising pretty much the same as Earth despite the fact Al Gore does not have a mansion there.

    Spare me with the CO2 crap too, already been debunked by non Maurice Strong associated scientists.

    I'll ask 1980's question again; why? Please don't come back with more man made gullible warming crap.

    The key word in the SA outline above is ‘agenda’. Obama does not govern; he rules.
