Bob, whatever you are sniffing, I suggest you cut back. I haven't mentioned you at all, nor addressed you. If you want to add 1 and 1 and come up with 7 and 1/2, that's your issue, not mine.

Reb, we are not talking  about new investors. We are talking about the government. I'm not sure of the rules but I seem to recall that if the government slaps a lien on a property, the government's lien will be honored before all others in line. Feel free to correct me on that if wrong.

Aside from that, how does it pass the smell test? We have a government in dire financial straits investing in a company that goes belly up and Obama makes it so that the primary investors, millionaires who happen to be huge donators to Obama, get their money while the government absorbs the loss. How many bridges can you build with half a billion dollars? How many teachers can you hire? Well, at 100,000 per year salary, we're talking over 5000. Now we have Obama saying he  needs money to hire teachers. He just sold 5000 of them down the river so that his contribution whales don't lose on the fiasco that his own advisors advised him not to go in because of the instability of the company. Do you really find this to be the actions of a president who puts the country first? I really don't see how you can.

I started snorting this:

quote:

....or distorted by political allegiance, don't forget. My thread on Solyndra bears that out pretty well. "If I close my eyes, you can't see me" mentality.



L.R. responded to your post about Solyndra in his # 19 with comments beginning:

quote:

So far Solyndra is getting about as much traction as a puppy on a fresh waxed floor as 'scandals' go...



in # 20, you replied, with incredulity, epitomised by statements like this:

quote:

I actually find it hard to believe that no one would be outraged by it,



     At this point, Iíd run across a website that seemed to condense everything L.R. had been talking about into one  example.  I announced this in Number 21.

The next posting was yours, half an hour later.  It was an aside to L.R.

quote:

See what I mean, LR?



     Thatís what Iím sniffing, Mike.

     Now when I look at post 26 and see that a thread that began as a  thread about how rumors get started and how truth gets crowded out by fiction has been altered, I see that there has in fact been an alien invasion, and that itís happened today.  Congratulations.  Indeed it seems to be my issue and not yours.
