Springtime For Hitler, Reprised
We’ve seen Solyndra, Inc. in the news. The
company was to produce green energy, and received hundreds of billions
of dollars in US government funds. Then they failed and went
under. They are not the first green “producer” to receive federal
loans and then fail. And then disappear, with money going who
knows where. This reminds me of the movie, later play, “The
Max Bialystok, play producer,
conned little old ladies of their money. In fact, they were
“oversubscribed”. He then produced a lemon which closed the first
night. Bialystok kept the remaining money, and no investor asked
for her share.
The problem came when a bright
accountant looked at the books, understood the scheme, and suggested
doing the absolutely worst play ever. “Springtime For Hitler” was
impossible to make a success, and the oversubscribed donors were sure
never to see their money back. Unfortunately for the producers,
it became an immediate smash hit, leading to discovery of the scam, and
the next play they produced was in prison.

the perfect scam. They know the technology they are doling out
funds for has absolutely no chance of success (and they know it).
“Springtime for Hitler” will never bight them in the butt.

Workers candidate Christopher Hoeppner at 4% and 7% of voters remaining
significance of this for democrats cannot be overstated. Which is
why of course Progressives are going all Krugmanny.
out Obama's unfortunate appearance in the lead in., one of these guys
represents the tea party manifesto (if there is one) "Let's stop this
crap and start over," while the other guy is a smarmy gopparatchik reprising the role of
ghosts past, like Rockefeller, Dole, Bush, McCain. and Romney
(George). I report, you decide.
By the by, if Sarah
Palin does not get into the race by, say the next week, I will have to
commit to the better of these two guys. My gut instinct is that
we need someone like Palin— where there is no chance whatever of
letting the establishment serve up another good old boy. We need
someone like me, but with gravitas.

Truth be known, we need a Caesar to cross the Rubicon. Sorry, but
it's come to that.
