62 Percent Think U.S. Is on the Decline

with one comment

A Fox News poll released Friday finds widespread belief among American voters that the country is on the decline as a civilization. In addition, a majority thinks the country is moving toward socialism.

A 62 percent majority of voters thinks the United States is on the decline. That’s more than twice as many as the 26 percent who believe it is on the rise.

Most Republicans — 76 percent — think the country is in decline, and 64 percent of independents agree. Views among Democrats are more evenly split: 41 percent say on the rise and 43 percent say on the decline.

Obama awards $1.45 billion loan guarantee to company promising 85 jobs

leave a comment »

During his weekly address to the nation over the Fourth of July weekend, President Obama announced that the Department of Energy was awarding $2 billion in loan guarantees to two energy companies — Abengoa Solar and Abound Solar Manufacturing.

The plan, Obama said, is for the companies to use the money to construct solar plants and panels to power thousands of homes — and create 5,000 jobs in the process.  Only about  1,600 of those jobs are slated to be permanent, though, meaning that the total cost to the taxpayer for each permanent job would exceed $1 million.

Do the math…I am all for alternative energy and JOBS. My concern is the fact that our tax dollars is being abused again.

Why does it cost $1 million to produce ONE job?
