How is that Green Energy Savings at the Pump Treating You?
Are those countless billions our President is spending on "Green Energy" saving you any money or power yet? Now forgive me at the start if it seems I mock the so called intelligentsia. After all based on their track record, I find them downright stubborn and silly to be kind. Mostly stubborn as they are trying to wish a policy to fruition. Doesn't work friends or else I would be a 1 percenter.
I suppose you have noticed by now if you had your weekly refill at the local station. It was surely a shock to me. As ABC News reported today " We are headed for record gas prices in 2012". CNN also added that we are back to people stealing gas right out of your tank. An occurrence I had not heard of since the 70's. And in case you hadn't noticed on Wall Street today several of the upper end eateries were clocked as recent polls released showed people would opt for less expensive dining to offset higher fuel costs. As always the poor will be hardest hit and I have no idea what the Department of Energy is doing.
I will grant alternative forms of energy are an admirable goal. I just think we are on the wrong track and have been since President Jimmy Carter jumped on the solar bandwagon in the late 70's. For the life of me I still do not understand how a windmill or solar panel will fill my gas tank. Perhaps 100 years from now the technology will make this a reality. For now we are throwing money away via subsidy to connected firms which are or will ultimately go the way of the dodo.
If we had any brains or wise people in D.C., we would have asked those poor people in Spain. After all they started some 15 years ago and have spent some $50 billion dollars to " go green". The results: they are right behind Greece in the handout line having spent this fortune and implemented silly regulations which ultimately drove out some 50,000 businesses to safer confines. Duh I could have told Spain that with one phone call.Continued on the next page
