If Only!

That this Solyndra scandal will bring down the Obama administration like a house of cards, or at least prevent his re-election:

Obama voters don't hear you.

Simon, a Jewish gentleman, had sent his son to college and on this day the son came home, only to announce that he'd become a Christian.

Simon was pretty upset by this and went over to talk with his friend Abe about it, and said, "Ahh, Abe, such a problem I have. I sent my son to college and he came back a Christian. What should I do"?

Abe looked at Simon solemnly and replied "Ah, funny thing you should ask. My son came back from college and said he was now a Christian". Simon was aghast. "No, you too, Abe? What did you do?" and Abe said "I did the only thing I could do, I went to see the rabbi".

So Simon went to the synagogue and found the rabbi and told him "Ah, rabbi, such a problem I have. I sent my son to college and he came back a Christian. What should I do?" and the rabbi replied "Ah, funny thing you should ask, I also sent my son to college and he came back a Christian".

Simon could hardly believe it and asked the rabbi what he did, and the rabbi replied that he did the only thing he could do, he knelt before the synagogue altar and prayed to God for an answer.

So Simon did that, he knelt down in front of the altar and prayed aloud, "Oh God, oh God, I have such a problem. I sent my son to college and he came home a Christian. What should I do?"

The ceiling of the synagogue suddenly seemed to be gone and blue sky was above. A golden beam of light shone down on Simon's head and a deep voice rumbled down from the heavens, and it said "Ah. Funny thing you should ask".

You're going to have to go back some years to get the joke, with this one.

A rabbi was walking past the base of a small mountain when a whole tribe of Trids came running up to him and pleaded with him to talk to the giant ogre who lived up the mountain. It seemed the Trids wanted to pick the berries that grew up there but the ogre kept kicking them back down the mountain, and they thought maybe the rabbi could get the ogre to not be so mean.

So the rabbi agreed and started up the mountain, with all the Trids following along behind. They had gotten a little more than halfway up when the ogre came running down and started kicking all the Trids back down the mountain. When he was done booting them all back to the base of the mountain, the rabbi was still there, and he asked the ogre, "aren't you going to kick me down the mountain too?" and the ogre replied...

"Silly rabbi. Kicks are for Trids."

Obama is about to foist upon us more Solyndras. From this source:

President Obama’s Department of Agriculture (USDA) called for applicants to receive the $25.4 million in funding flagged for rural green energy loan guarantees and grants, even as Obama’s campaign released an ad defending the Solyndra loan. [...]

USDA touted this green energy funding as an example of Obama working to “reduce our dependence on foreign oil, combat global warming, and build stronger rural economy.” Obama blocked American use of some foreign oil — piped from Canada — this week when his State Department recommended that the Keystone XL pipeline not receive a construction permit, pending further environmental impact studies.

The Left doesn't believe that economic viability (aka- capitalism) should be a reason companies should be doing what they do. For them, it's enough to simply "desire" a product, like an electric car or pollution free energy source. I say fine, then FOUND your own companies, and watch them go bankrupt. Don't force the American taxpayers to invest in them. You want to lose your own money, fine. Just don't force me to lose mine. Me, I can live with a little pollution.

Obama owns all kinds of bad policy and outright dirty stuff. His voters simply don't care!

I wish but I don't think this will cause his downfall simply because the media is corrupt and now the house organ for the White House. They will not cover this event and if they do, they will yawn. Unfortunately at least a slight majority of Americans still get their 'news' from the alphabet networks and outlets that are in the Obama camp (that is, if they are paying any attention). I still bump into reasonably intelligent people who don't know what Solyndra is or even who Joe Biden is. But they can tell you about Beyonce's pregnancy and Jennifer Lopez hooking up with a guy half her age. Important stuff. Now, if Solyndra had only been a George Bush project...that excuse will be coming out next.

A congressman was seated in first class next to a little girl on an airplane. He turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"
"Oh, I don't know," said the congressman. "How about global warming, universal health care or stimulus packages?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health care or the economy when you don't know crap?"

Then she went back to reading her book.
