EXCERPT: GE said Thursday it will buy 25,000 electric vehicles for its fleet through 2015 in the largest-ever purchase of electric cars. GE will begin with an initial purchase of 12,000 vehicles from General Motor Co., starting with Chevy Volt in 2011. The conglomerate said it "will add other vehicles as manufacturers expand their electric vehicle profiles." The first Chevrolet Volt is expected to roll off production lines later this month. GM confirmed the announcement with CNNMoney.com.
This is HILARIOUS. Remember folks, when dealing with libscum like Obama, Soros, Nutsy Pelosi, Dingy Reid, always, always, FOLLOW THE MONEY.
First, GM is now Government Motors. (Which is why the Gunny will never again buy a GM.)
Second, Jeffy Immelt at GE follows so close behind Obama and when Obama recently bent over to bow to Burger King, Immelt's head went so far up Obama's ass that he can probably see the Kenyan Usurper's liver. In fact, a quick search of Open Secrets reveals that Jeffy gave 10K to the DNC in 2008, which of course, went to the Imam's campaign of Hoax and Chains.
Third, GE donated almost 700,000 bucks to the Dummycrats in 2008, again, all of which went to the Kenyan Usurper.
Fourth, this regime gave General Electric (who owns NBC BTW) $24.9 MILLION bucks from the $787 BILLION economic Porkulous that the Kenyan signed off on in February 2009. (Recovery.gov) And even after getting $24.9 million from the U.S. taxpayer, GE managed to shed 18,000 US EMPLOYEES in 2009. (GE 2009 annual report.) But hey, they DID manage to post a tasty profit, of 156 BILLION in 2009. (Standard & Poor's) Why exactly did they NEED 24.9 MILLION in TAXPAYER money? Ah, a kickback to Immelt for backing Ol Jug Ears.
Does that PISS YOU OFF? It should. But wait, there's MORE!
Owl Gore, Obama, GE/NBC, Soros, and the Dummycrats are all in the sack together like some sick NAMBLA fantasy. The Left STILL clings desperately to the climate change bullshit. WHY?
FOLLOW THE MONEY
Owl Gore+Carbon Credit Exchange (now defunct)+Democrats and Cap and Trade = SCAM!
You see, if we DRILLED for domestic oil and refined it here in the USA, gas prices would go down ala supply and demand. But you see, because groups like GE, Owl Gore, etc, have put down a huge financial bet on "green" energy sources, such as wind and solar, which only work on certain days and nowhere NEAR the BTU output of oil, they would lose MONEY if we were "allowed" to drill for domestic oil. Hmmm, you think THIS is why the White House LIED on the oil report on offshore drilling? So as they tighten down the screws on oil and coal production ("I am going to bankrupt the coal industry," Obama) prices will go UP and we'll be "NUDGED" into underperforming green crapulence, i.e., the Chevy reVolt, the Edsel of the 21st century.
So what happens? GE CEO Jeffy Immelt, again, who owns NBC, starts promoting climate change fears and solar panels (made in China) amd wind turbines as a sound energy alternative. They even had OWL GORE on "Meet the Press on July 20, 2009, wringing his hands about gloBULL warming, gloBULL cooling, climate change, and of course, he attacked oil exploration. But best of all, Ol Owl can always be counted on to be the pimp on the spot as he, OH YES HE DID, touted his idea to generate ALL of the electricity needs for the USA, from, you guessed it, carbon-free sources like wind turbines. Oh yeah, Ol Pimp Gore also supports the use of coal, as long as it is processed with carbon capture and sequestration, a technology owned by, you guessed it, GE!
Why NBC even had T. Boone Pickens on Squawk Box. T. Boone wants to use natural gas and wind, of course, areas where HE has major investments. Oh, and T. Boone purchased $2 billion dollars worth of wind turbines...from GE.
So let's see how this works out? Green technology sucks. The GM reVolt sucks. Obama owns GM. Obama gave money to GE who gave him money to get elected. GM is now owned by the UAW, who also got BILLION from the US taxpayer, who calls in their marker to Obama, who they also gave huge amounts of cash to get him elected. Obama complies, naturally, and he tells his buddy Immelt to hookup GM with a nice fat order. Since GE also produces the CHARGING station for the reVolt, GE gets a nice kickback on that. Oh, did the Gunny forget to mention that GE will also get a tasty $7,500 TAXPAYER FUNDED Credit PER VEHICLE?
25,000 vehicles times $7,500 equals... 187,500,000 MILLION dollars of OUR MONEY into GE's pocket. And the Left whines about business being in the pocket of Republicans? WTF?
Oh, and where does electricity come from? Oh yeah, coal-fired power plants, probably using GE technology that they had to pay for.
This kind of scam could ONLY originate in the mind of a Chicago democrat.
