Re: Communist "Truther" is current Obama environmental advisor

And the left wonders why people are screaming and making so much noise. If they didn't then assholes like this would be in positions of power. People complaining about "Obamacare" got some of the worst shit thrown out (still way too much left). Parents complaining got Obama backtracking on his indoctrination plans.

People need to be getting madder and the so called "tea baggers" need to be shouting from the rooftops.

Just the fact he is making a position like this is bad enough, let alone the type of person he picks. People got their panties in a bunch when the right complained about Obama’s friends and associates before the election; well THIS is why. This is the kind of people Obama thinks would be fine in our government. Birds of a feather…

A lot of people didn't really give the fact that Obama is from Chicago any consideration. This is just regular politics for him. What he grew up with, what he has seen, what he thinks is normal.

I never thought I'd see the dark day when the White House was occupied by a lunatic who thinks you're supposed to eat pizza with a knife and fork.

Hey, Pizzeria Uno in Chicago (not to be confused with the chain to which it sold its name) has the best pizza in the world. The only way to properly eat it is with a knife and fork.

(Now running away from stoning administered by tasteless fans of that cardboard that passes for pizza in New York).

Fighting about pizza is like fighting about best of breed at a dog show. They are all beautiful dogs. Worthy of eating.

If you have to eat it with a knife and fork it ceases to be pizza and becomes some sort of Italian quiche.

Freakin' quiche eating pansy.

The best pizza I ever ate was from Franco's Pizza in Conneaut, Ohio. Both NY and Chicago pizza are dog food in comparison.

Don't like Chicago style hot dogs either.

I'm sure whatever you eat in Chicago is quite delicious. I just would not use the term "pizza" to describe what you are eating. Perhaps "doughza" or "extra thick round sicilian?"

You all get more worked up by the pizza than by the commie.

Unfortunately I hardly ever get to Chicago and it's been years since I've had it. The chain Uno's in Madison is pretty good but not the same.

A proper deep dish (or pan) pizza does not have a whole lot more crust. It's filled with more delicious cheese, tomatoes (not just tomato sauce) and the like as well as, of course, the toppings.

We have a local chain in Madison called Rocky Rococo and their "pan" pizza is filled mostly with just extra crust (yes, it's doughy). I will not eat it.

You gotta figure when the country elects a commie symp, there are going to be a few commies in the government.

But Chicogoans bragging about their un-American pizzas? They might as well proclaim that the best salsa comes from New York City.

Holy crap! I've been hoodwinked. Communism was just a red herring.

This is really about those damn Chicagoans getting America to accept their loony pizza casserole as mainstream.

Van Jones, newly minted martyr, aids in fundraising.

Van Jone$
[Greg Pollowitz]

As they say, don't let a crisis go to waste. The Apollo Alliance is fundraising over the loss of their rock-star green-jobs czar:
Dear Greg,

The Apollo Alliance is under attack from the far right, and we need your help.

Former Apollo board member Van Jones resigned from his White House post as Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation this week under pressure from these attacks.

Don't let them stop us now! Contribute to the Apollo Alliance today!

Fox News has decided that the Apollo Alliance is at the head of a "vast left-wing conspiracy" and has had its attack dog, Glenn Beck, accuse our clean energy, good jobs coalition of hijacking the republic!

Make no mistake. They won't be satisfied until the climate bill is dead. They have even spelled it out on Foxnews.com, where Americans for Prosperity's Phil Kerpen writes:

"Now that Jones has resigned, we need to follow through with two critical policy victories. First, stop cap-and-trade, which could send these groups trillions, and second repeal the unspent portion of the stimulus bill, which stands to give them billions."

What is going on here? The attack on the Apollo Alliance was just the opening salvo in a smear campaign that will ramp up as the right-wing continues to attack President Obama and our work to bring about energy security, climate stability and long-term economic prosperity.

We need your help to stop Fox News, Glenn Beck and Americans for Prosperity now! Please donate to the Apollo Alliance TODAY.

We know that our clean energy, good jobs message is working because polls show that a majority of likely voters support placing a cap on carbon emissions and believe that clean energy measures will lead to new job creation.

Thanks for helping us stop the right-wing onslaught against America's transition to a clean energy, good jobs economy - and for all your support.

Sincerely,

Cathy Calfo
Executive Director
The Apollo Alliance
If you don't support a commie or the trillions of dollars for virtually no benefit Taxman-Malarkey bill, you're "right wing."

There are lots of reasons why a green job might be economically viable yet private actors wouldn't have incentives to create it. As a trivial example, imagine a green job that costs $50,000 but saves the government $100,000 in environmental clean-up costs. No private actor has the incentive to save the government $100,000, but society would clearly be better off if that happened.
