Our Governor Resigns !
Remember when it was a scandal simply for an older guy to have an affair with a much younger woman who was not his wife?
Today, it takes much, much, more to get a crooked politician out of office.
Why did this governor stay in office for so long? Because the liberals just love, love, love, green energy… even if it doesn’t work.
This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Almost all green energy is a scandal.
Be it wind, solar, biomass, or whatever, to this day, no form of “green energy” has been proven to work on a large scale. (With the exception of hydro-electric, which the greenies are against.) That is because none of these can produce power as cost effectively as traditional forms of energy production. Also, many forms of “green energy” have proven to have environmental consequences that are just as negative as the burning of fossil fuels.
With traditional forms of energy production, it is possible to sell the power produced for more than what it cost to generate it. That is not the case with “green energy”, but the money to produce it has to come from somewhere and that of course, is from the American taxpayer.
Even liberals understand this, but they figured out that they don’t even have to go through the trouble of actually building some type alternative energy plant, when they can just steal money directly from the taxpayers in the form of consulting fees. That’s what we’ve got here…
