When is it a hate crime?

It’s an obvious hate crime when a WHITE  hispanic (whatever that is) kills a black teenager, but questionable when 6 black men beat a white restaurant patron.  Then it becomes no longer so obvious, right?

Police said their investigation determined that the victim [who happens to be white] was beat by the group of men [all of whom happen to be black] and the incident may have been racially motivated. The department said they forwarded the case to the FBI to determine if it should be pursued further as a hate crime under federal law.

Ah yes – do any of you really think that the government, under Holder, will try this as a hate crime? This is another. just like the Black Panther case, that will be thrown out. Holder’s civil rights division does not try his “own people.”

So he’s a shoe-in, is he?

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

From here.

I guess he’s sure he has the job again. Of course with the amount of money he’s raised (and is confident he will raise), he can afford to be cocky.

Nevada’s solar collection plant that employs 5 …. for over $11million a job!

Every time I drive to Las Vegas, I drive by this solar collection plant.

In Boulder City, [NV] however, renewables have produced no lower energy costs. Instead, in late 2009, the city approved a 35 percent rate hike, while power generated by Copper Mountain is to go to Southern California — rather than serve Nevadans whose taxes helped finance the plant.

The solar energy is being sold by Sempra to California, which has mandated that 33 percent of the state’s energy must come from renewable sources by 2020.

Read more (and it’s short) here.

A closer look at the acres of solar panels.

5 fulltime employees is all they have. And the Nevada tax payers have subsidized this thing to see nothing in return! And they will never see their money returned on this either:

according to the U.S. Department of Energy, solar-PV energy will cost three and a half times more than energy from traditional sources such as coal.

This is nothing more than another Solyndra on a little smaller scale and Obama will  be there this week to “tout” his great alternative energy source – to an audience of 5, plus a gaggle of adoring reporters.

I’m going to do some digging later on because I believe that Harry Reid’s son (you might remember that he’s the one – Rory Reid – who ran for governor and never used his last name on one campaign poster)  has some interest in this company. Nevada received “$1Billion in stimulus funds” and it’s hard to believe that the Reid family didn’t benefit financially from this, in some form or another.  If I’m not mistaken, during Rory’s campaign it was uncovered that he did in fact, make some money off of this— but I could be wrong.

Quote of the day – John Stossel

It might seem reasonable for government to make life more fair. But when it takes your money and freedom trying to do that, life becomes less fair. Everyone is poorer and less free. As government grows, individual liberty shrinks. That’s not fair.

It might help if instead of talking about fairness, we talked about justice: respecting other people, their freedom and their honestly acquired belongings. Real fairness, or justice, requires limiting government power. That means the same rules for everyone. No special favors. No handouts. Or, in Frederic Bastiat’s phrase, no “legal plunder.”  John Stossel



We’ve seen this movie before

Another round of punishing and blaming Fox News?  Well, I highly doubt it – Baraka can’t be that stupid twice – but this is interesting, all the same:

[Author David] Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”

“…Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.
