Obama tells NAACP blacks must take responsibility

Obama tells NAACP blacks must take responsibility

What a concept!

This dude must be really, really smurt.....

Where Is Obama Going?

Where Is Obama Going?
"So what we thought was a promise was a goal. What we thought was an unqualified timetable is not. What we thought was his determination to issue new orders really wasn’t. But whatever he committed to the American people he is still committing. (There are only so many questions one can ask, but Brokaw might have asked how his vote to cut off funding immediately figured into all of this.)
Can you imagine if he had said this during the primary? Hillary Clinton would be the one with the White House redecorating plans now. (I can understand why McCaskill was pleading to get back to the economy.)"

Shelby eyeing big wind farm

Shelby eyeing big wind farm
"John Deere Wind Energy in conjunction with Michigan Wind LLC of Big Rapids is proposing a wind farm that would include 30 turbines at 60 megawatts just east of Hart. If the township board approves and economic studies continue to be favorable, it could be constructed by 2010, developers said during an informational meeting Thursday at Elbridge Township Hall."

It would be interesting to see how much federal, state, local tax money is going into these projects.

$3.4M cleanup to restore lake shoreline
"The Great Lakes Commission donated the first $50,000 for the project and NOAA is seeking Congressional approval of another $1.5 million for the initiative. The remaining funds are expected to come from federal agencies."

"Clean" is nice but "broke" is what's going on.

How many thousands of similar projects are sucking our future dry?
