FISKER KARMA – ANOTHER OBAMA BOONDOGGLE

Everyone’s probably heard of Solyndra but how many of you have heard of the Fisker Corporation? Two years ago, Henrik Fisker got $529,000,000 (yes, that’s $529 million) in government loan guarantees to start up his electric car company.  All the money hasn’t circled the bowl yet, but I’m predicting it will. Let’s start off with […]

Save the Planet, Kill a Child

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting really tired of hearing, reading and seeing “green.” Here’s the latest from Arrowhead Spring Water.  I heard about it on the radio and had to see for myself.  Sure enough, on our weekly trip to Walmart, I had my husband take these photos. Arrowhead’s touting the fact […]

Save the Patient? OR Save the Planet?

I’m not sure if the article I read is more a reflection on government-run health care or the screwiness of proponents of “green” anything;  it’s probably a little bit of both.  I think it’s worth mentioning and gives us a glimpse into the future. Being thousands of pages long and with the Supreme Court now […]

Down the Drain

Well, I guess there’s still more problems with the Fisker automobile company.  I’ve written about Fisker before. Our government is hellbent on shoving “green” technology down our throats whether we like it or not.    In my opinion, the Fisker automobile is yet another one of those ventures which will turn out to be a debacle […]

GO GREEN, PAY MORE GREEN

Earlier in the year, we received a letter from our City Manager and City Council member which included our “first personalized Home Energy Report.”  The report compares our energy usage compared to our neighbors’. Our “most” efficient neighbors are graphed in green, “all” neighbors are graphed in orange and we’re graphed in, oh my God! […]

WHEN GREEN WAS JUST A LOVELY COLOR

There was a time when I heard the word “green” and I’d think immediately of grass, trees, St. Patrick’s Day and candies I usually didn’t like. Now, when I hear the word “green,” I immediately cringe. I cringe because I’m sure that the reference to “green” is going to refer to some new-fangled idea which […]
