Nebraska 2nd District Congressman Lee Terry was featured, briefly, on the NBC Nightly News the other night, on the growing Solyndra scandal at the White House. See it here:
This followed up Terry’s appareance on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, which you can see, in its entirety, on Terry’s YouTube page.
You can follow just about everything regarding Solyndra on Drudge. That, of course, is the solar power company that got millions in federal tax money and was pushed by all the Greenies, including the White House. But everyone, including those in the company, knew the business model would not and could not work.
Wonder how many other “green” ventures out there have the same issues.
This follows up a Tweet by Attorney General Jon Bruning who expressed his admiration for the talent of one Justin Bieber.
We are just going to throw this out there: if ONE candidate or member of office would Tweet about The Clash or maybe some Zeppelin, it would go a long way towards garnering our support.
Following up our discussion about the tax support for the Quilt Museum in Lincoln, we note the LJS’s article on the implications for public support of the new Lincoln arena.
In the discussions here, many quilt lovers, fanatics and those who even sleep with the things(!) expressed their views that any tax money was a good investment. They argue that the busloads of museum attendees and their money spent outweigh the measly $100K of public cash that went into the place.
This is a common argument, and maybe even a strong one. There are certainly many, many venues across the state that get public cash. We’ve even heard discussions questioning why the biggest in the state needs to get any public funds.
And that is a worthy discussion. Of course there are some venues that could never be built without public money. Others use it to get up and running and then go from there. Our point about the quilting joint was whether they ever needed the cash in the first place.
Feel free to continue the discussion.
The LJS had an article on the story of the TransCanada ad at the Husker games.
In their balanced reporting they quoted:
Allen Schreiber – who protested TransCanada at the White House.
Tyson Johnson – who protested TransCanada at the White House
Jane Kleeb – who protested TransCanda at the White House.
And then TC spokesman Jeff Rauh.
Then there was this line from Jane: “We wish they would take their message elsewhere, because Nebraskans are not buying their message.” (Hands on hips, pouty face.)
Well, Jane, over 90% of landowners along the pipeline route HAVE listened to TC’s message and have granted the right of way. But we are sure you’d like to silence TC from telling people about the science of the operation, seeing as how your plan is to prevent all Canadian oil from coming to America.
And Jane and her gang of Merry Pranksters are going to protest Governor Heineman some more, since he has endorsed Mitt Romney for President — who is for the pipeline.
Anyone else following the logic there?
You’ll get there.
Yup. We are looking forward to Jane abandoning the President’s campaign soon.
Or at least shining flashlights at Hillary, right?
We’ll be holding our breath.
And don’t say Leavenworth Street is always knocking this President. Here is something we cheer for the Prez on, and are solidly behind.
Say it with us: Four more Beers! Four more Beers!
