But only after Ogabe shoveled half a billion of our money into it to “create or save” jobs.
Solyndra, one of SCOAMF’s fairy dust projects, shut down and laid off 1,100 “created or saved” jobs when it turned out that solar panels weren’t quite the brilliant idea that we were told they were.
Which, if you had the brains of an arugula, you’d already know since business ideas that could be successful will, in most cases, already be pursued by somebody else too already. Nobody likes to leave a fast buck laying around on the sidewalk, after all.
But once the Federal subsidies dried up, as in our money, it turned out that unicorn farts weren’t profitable at all and now we, the taxpayer, are left holding Il Douche’s stillborn baby.
A bit of schadenfreude is in order, though:
A foundation linked to a top donor to President Obama says it took a hit like all other investors in a distressed solar company that this week shuttered its plant and laid off 1,100 workers, leaving taxpayers on the hook for loans guaranteed by the federal government.
The Tulsa-based George Kaiser Family Foundation said in a statement that it is among many investors in Solyndra, the California-based company that received a $535 million loan guaranteed by the Energy Department. The independent foundation is linked to billionaire oilman George B. Kaiser, a fundraising bundler during Obama’s campaign.
Are you telling us that one of Il Douche’s bag men is linked to a doomed half a billion dollars project paid for with our money? The Hell you say! That’s unpossible! It’s almost as if Il Douche handed the bastard $500,000,000 that we could have put into our kids’ college funds as a return for “services rendered” in getting Il Douche elected SCOAMFOTUS. But clearly that can’t be it, because even suggesting such a thing would be RAAAAACIST!
Oh well. So this pipe dream tanked. We’re sure that demented Uncle “Choo Choo” Joe Biden’s high speed rail projects will be successful. And even if that’s not the case, surely Il Douche’s 7,332nd “jobs speech” next Thursday will succeed in ushering in an Age of Plenty™.
Or maybe it will just be another Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure, but don’t let the commissars know that you heard us say that.
