The DOD whistleblower needs someone else to look at DOD budget.... she's not an accountant.
Back when GM needed to be bailed out, it was considered unthinkable that America would not have its own car companies. The big three auto makers were given the status of the Statue of Liberty or the Jefferson Memorial. When Romney was running his alleged opposition to the bailout was used against him.
So how can we go from bailing out American automakers to giving more taxpayer money to their foreign competitors? That is exactly what the Detroit News reveals that our government is doing, though you would never know it from the headline. The headline makes it look like a foreign company is simply making an investment based on an assumption of risk and a calculation of profitability: “Nissan launching production of Leaf in U.S.” But the story shows us some other factors:
But in addition to providing subsidized competition for American-made products, we also get all the signs that this is just another Solyndra waiting to happen:
I really don’t know how to properly respond to this sort of news. The whole reason why unemployment is so high right now is because of insane economic tampering by the government to the benefit of a few companies at the expense of the many. The extra American jobs that are promised will probably never materialize and certainly will never last. They are simply welfare expenses and they will cost the American taxpayer more jobs because the money to support them is taken away from the productive economy and misallocated to this “green” agenda.
We are ruled by arrogant children.
