Hobophobia, the irrational fear of the homeless, was a reason I gave in my last blog for the lack of shelter for the homeless in Bucks County, PA. Today I’ll address the economic causes of homelessness.
Unfounded, unproven alternative energy initiatives cripple the economy. They are underwritten by the government, using tax money to fund this pipe dream. A good example of this is Solyndra, Barry’s boondoggle: The manufacturer of advanced solar panels received a $535 million loan guarantee to build a factory outside of San Francisco.
Solyndra went bankrupt in 2011 amid falling prices for solar panels, and has since served as the poster child for government policy gone bad. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solyndra
Its assets were being auctioned off, and DOE is not expected to recover any meaningful amount of money.
The executives at Solyndra, who contributed to BO’s presidential campaign, walked away with golden parachutes, while we got the shaft.
We all suffer when the economy suffers, especially the homeless. The homeless are the canary in the mine, an early warning for an environment that can no longer sustain life.
The government blocks energy production that works, just as Bucks County government blocks plans to create more shelter for the homeless. The free market has provided clean, affordable energy and has created legitimate jobs, not bogus energy jobs that are artificially propped up by the government.
The free market works for energy as well as for other economic matters. Government programs, which kowtow to the rich, spoiled brat Woodstock leftover environmentalist wackos, doesn’t.
In my blog Fight Homelessness; Don’t Vote for Progressives, I documented that there is more homelessness under liberal rule than when conservative policy prevails. Out of her own mouth, presidential candidate Shrillery Clinton stated that she’s going to continue the war on coal and other traditional energy sources in order to make way for alternative energy.
I also heard the former Wicked Witch of The West Wing Augustly say “I’m a progressive.”
The snake oil salesmen (and saleswomen) who hawk government mandated alternative energy are like the lying profits that Jeremiah wrote about: “…I (the Lord) am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare ‘The Lord declares’. Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams, declares the Lord. They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them. They do not benefit these people in the least, declares the Lord.” — Jeremiah 23: 31,32.
The High Priests of Ozone and Human Caused Global warming do not have our best interests at heart, nor do the politicians who underwrite them.
The free market is the key to energy, the economy, and the homeless problem. It is only a tool; it needs the right people to use it.
