“Solyndra executives repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment this morning as House lawmakers pressed them to answer questions about the company's financial collapse and any hopes of repaying their $535 million federal loan guarantee.
‘While I hope to have an opportunity to assist this committee in the future, on the advice of my attorney, I must respectfully decline to answer any questions,’ Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison told Energy and Commerce oversight subpanel Chairman Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), who opened the questioning.”
A) “5,500 years ago, the Arctic had substantially less summertime sea ice than today”
B) “The last time that scientists can say confidently that the Arctic was free of summertime ice was 125,000 years ago, during the height of the last major interglacial period, known as the Eemian. Temperatures in the Arctic were warmer than now and sea level was also 4 to 6 meters (13 to 20 feet) higher than it is today”

“President Obama says he wants to make sure millionaires are taxed at higher rates than their secretaries. The data say they already are…
The 10% of households with the highest incomes pay more than half of all federal taxes. They pay more than 70% of federal income taxes, according to the Congressional Budget Office.”
“the House and the Senate recently proposed near-identical versions of the Fair Employment Opportunity Act of 2011 to prohibit discrimination based on a job applicant’s unemployment status.
Despite ostensibly good intentions, Congress’s proposal has raised eyebrows for affording remarkably expansive rights and protections to job applicants and employees that go above and beyond any federal or state law or proposed law to date. If passed, the potential for substantial government intrusion in the private sector’s hiring process looms large, with several negative consequences for the workplace likely to follow.”
“Each Toyota Prius uses 25 pounds of rare earth elements.”Yesterday, The New York Times reported that:
“By closing or nationalizing dozens of the producers of rare earth metals — which are used in energy-efficient bulbs and many other green-energy products — China is temporarily shutting down most of the industry and crimping the global supply of the vital resources…Steve Milloy suggests (I inserted the link):
General Electric, facing complaints in the United States about rising prices for its compact fluorescent bulbs, recently noted in a statement that if the rate of inflation over the last 12 months on the rare earth element europium oxide had been applied to a $2 cup of coffee, that coffee would now cost $24.55.
A pack of three 11-watt G.E. compact fluorescent bulbs — each the lighting equivalent of a 40-watt incandescent bulb — was priced on Thursday at $15.88 on Wal-Mart’s Web site for pickup in a Nashville, Ark., store. The average price for fluorescent bulbs has risen 37 percent this year, according to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.”
“If you haven’t already said your morning curses, don’t forget to condemn the 110th [Democrat controlled] Congress for passing the incandescent bulb ban, George W. Bush for signing it, and the the 111th [Democrat controlled] and 112th [divided] Congresses and Barack Obama for failing to reverse the ban.”Nice work, Dims! You’ve made a bad recession MUCH worse. In the process, you’ve racked up unprecedented debt. You’ve robbed us blind with your crony capitalism and your Chicago style gangster government.
“Greece’s chance of default in the next five years has soared to 98 percent”
“Fired former Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz could lose $10 million for violating a non-disparagement clause when she raged that the company's board members 'f***ed me over.'
Miss Bartz, in an interview with Fortune after her Tuesday firing by phone, also said the board was 'trying to show that they're not the doofuses that they are.'
However, according to Fortune, her contract with Yahoo contained a clause barring her from criticizing the internet company.”
“One of the most annoying things about the climate change debate is that any regional weather event is blamed on humans, if even only partly. Such unscientific claims cannot be supported by data — they are little more than ambiguous statements of faith.
The current ‘exceptional’ Texas drought is no exception. People seem to have short memories…especially if they were born after most of the major climate events of the past occurred.”
“Cranking up the anti-Tea Party rhetoric, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa called on workers to ‘take these son-of-a-bitches out’ as he warmed up a crowd Monday in Detroit ahead of President Obama's Labor Day speech...
‘We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face -- a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party,’ he said. ‘And there's only one way to beat and win that war -- the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight.’…
‘President Obama, this is your army, we are ready to march,’ Hoffa said.”
“The number of unemployed persons, at 14.0 million, was essentially unchanged in August, and the unemployment rate held at 9.1 percent. The rate has shown little change since April...
Total nonfarm payroll employment, at 131.1 million, was unchanged (0) in August. [In other words, the economy created NO JOBS in August - NONE!]”
