Steven Chu, Barack Obama and the rest of the Democrats saved us from a horrible death by thirst, fire and drowning by throwing $535 million down the hole on Solyndra — and nobody even bothered to thank them!

That’s the laughable view of the congressman who wields weapons-grade ugly, Henry Waxman:

( – Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said that Department of Energy subsidies, such as the the failed $535-million loan guarantee to solar company Sloyndra, were “saving” people from “fires, droughts and floods” that are caused by global warming.

“I want to put this in perspective Dr. Chu,” Waxman told Energy Secretary Steven Chu on Thursday at a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing on the Solyndra failure. “You’ve been trying to move our nation toward a clean energy economy. And that’s essential to protect American families from fires and droughts and floods and other extreme weather that climate change will bring.”

Question for Waxman: How many taxpayer-funded bankruptcies will it take to fully stave off global warming and save the world?

    But who's going to save us from the politicians?

    "fires and droughts and floods" ( Prog-version of Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! )

    Thank YOU deep blue Cali for providing Waxman wit' employment fo' LIFE yo! His running a campaign a mere formality and as such, he's free to become as Unhinged as he pleases without fear of repercussion.

    His b@lls should be TIED to Mr. Magoo's and thrown over a low hanging power line like a pair of old gym shoes. I say low hanging so inner-city prog-educated part-time dealers can poke them w/ sticks.

    You`ve apparently given this some thought ! Good therapy; relieve that stress ! 😉

    Wow. The arrogance of power really has a way of obscuring the truth. I'll take falsehoods over half truths any day. The former doesn't masquerade as something that it isn't.

    Hyper, All

    I've a suggestion. This April as we go to make out those checks, I'd like to suggest each taxpayer ( uh those of us who OWE ) make (2) separate checks:

    One for the full and fair amount you'd normally pay. Then a SECOND check calculated by the amount every man woman and child will have to pay to cover all of Bammie's handouts.

    Predictably, the second check bounces. When the IRS contacts you, tell them you can't imagine as to 'why' that could have happened? Feign concern and assure them "you'll get it straightened out right away!" See, I didn't have enough in one account to cover it so I had to cut that other check?

    Set snooze alarm and wait for impending fallout. Just whatever… When they figure out they've got a LOT of bounced checks, maybe they'll get a clue?

    Rush says that just before he dies, he wants to write a check to the IRS that bounces. (he plans to disperse ALL his estate beforehand)

    The level of corruption, cronyism and cover-up in our country is starting to resemble Nigeria or a banana republic.

    Consider also what just happened in a federal court in Texas. In this case, As described at , a Dallas business owner was involved in a civil dispute and paid millions of dollars to lawyers, and when he objected to additional fees after settling the case, they had a "friendly" judge, appointed by President Clinton, seize all of his possessions, without any notice or hearing, and essentially ordered him under “house arrest” as an involuntary servant to the lawyers and denied a jury trial. The business owner has been under this "servant" order for 10 months and is prohibited from owning any possessions, prohibited from working, etc..

    More gems of wisdom from Nostril-damus.
    I wasn't aware that fires and floods were "weather".

  9. SignPainterGuy on November 18th, 2011 4:30 pm

    Well yeah, it`s common knowledge among the "well informed leftist-redistributionists" ! Where have you been, under all that GW caused earthquake rubble ?

  10. Marshall_Will on November 18th, 2011 4:44 pm

    Good points. As Backwoods notes ( who's going to save us from the politicians!? )

    A little over a year ago when NYC had a blizzard, Michelle observed "Everyone is freaking out!" the only fatalities were due to public 'servants' that dragged their heels leaving ambulances unable to reach out to a pregnant woman. Sad.

    All w/ the blessings of their handlers. Remember the videos of snow plows dragging curbside cars sideways? Yeah, THOSE guys! So it's not the 'weather' that GETS you.

  11. SignPainterGuy on November 18th, 2011 5:01 pm

    That was the first time I`d seen snow plows on garbage trucks. It makes sense in that multi-role sorta way / not having to buy so many dump trucks n all, but fer cryin` out loud, they`re for snow removal, not trash creation !!
