arno,

You have my deepest and utmost sympathy and condolences. Even though we know the day is coming eventually, it is never easy when it arrives. You have been a good caregiver to your wife and your love helped her through this. May she be at peace and may you find peace as you go forward.

God Bless.

arno,
I am so sorry to hear that Dianna passed.

I ran across a photo of you and Dianna from the piffer LV trip back in...1998 or 1999. I remember her fitting in quite nicely with your crazy internet friends.

You have our love, care and support.

Rest in Peace, Dianna.

Tom

The Corporate State Rolls On
February 22, 2012, 8:48 am

In a Senate budget hearing with the Department of Energy, one would have expected a lot of questions about the loan program to avoid future Solyndras. But Al Franken uses his time to pester the DOE to give taxpayer money to a corporation in his state.

This is the answer as to why so many bone-headed loans were made despite evidence of likely disaster. You can bet that Boxer and Feinstein were all over the DOE several years ago pushing for the Solyndra loan. Franken doesn’t give a rip whether the loan is smart or not, or whether the taxpayers’ money is safe or not. He wants a multi-million dollar press release to get himself in the Minnesota news for a newscycle or two helping out the home state. After that, the money’s purpose has been achieved and I can’t imagine him caring what happens to it. Certainly that is the fate of most of these jobs-related government investments – big splashes up front with promises of hundreds of new jobs, but absolutely no scrutiny in the back end when, likely as not, these jobs don’t actually materialize.

Al Franken is what he is...a bad comedian.

A Circle Has No End — GE and the Corporate State
February 24, 2012, 12:41 pm

The arch-corporate-statist – and official manufacturing company of the Obama Administration is feeding at the trough again. Apparently a perfectly profitable company cannot buy assets from another profitable company without a large subsidized loan from taxpayers. In this case, the Obama Administration is funding the KCS in its purchase of 30 new locomotives from GE. The Obama Administration has recently doubled-down on its backing of the US Ex-Im bank, which has been helping to fund Boeing aircraft sales to foreign airlines (each of which, surprise!, has a couple of GE engines on it).

GE knows how this political game is played, with resources allocated based on quid pro quo. Just the other day, GE announced that it would help bail out Obama and Government Motors buy mandating that all its company vehicles be Chevy Volts, in effect committing to buy more Volts than Chevy sold to consumers all last year. Of course, the circle has no end, so in turn GE will be rewarded with $90,000,000 in government subsidies for its 12,000 Chevy Volts, a number that could increase to $120 million if Obama’s proposal to increase the per car subsidy is accepted.

By the way, the Obama Administration has criticized oil companies like Exxon-Mobil for earning excessive profits and getting overly large tax breaks. In 2010, Exxon paid a whopping 40.7% of its income in taxes ($21.6 billion in taxes on $53 billion in profits). In the same year, Obama subsidiary General Electric paid 7.4% of profits in taxes.
