Solyndra Executives Defraud DOE But Holder Refused To Prosecute Obama's Cronies

The crony capitalists linked to Obama like those who gave us the Solyndra mess
After hearing Hillary promising 500 million solar panels  their ecstasy must be hard to repress
Her campaign is mired in scandal and complete lack of interest
Media focus on her dishonesty she is desperate to arrest
What better way to get the media to potential criminal activity ignore
While she still has a podium as opposed to interviews outside a courtroom door
Throw the two punch combo of the war on women and war on fossil fuels
While bobbing and weaving with it’s old news, let’s move on Clinton playbook tools
Obama has spent billions to fossil fuels generating electricity replace
Yet after all these billions to Obama’s allies replacement has been a slower than a snail’s pace
After over five years alternative energy sources to generate our electric juice
Only a one percentage point increase in a program plagued by waste, fraud and abuse
The fed bureaucrats could not pick a winner if there was only one entrant in the business
race
Allowing the DOE to pick and choose based on support of Obama is a complete and utter disgrace
We know find that the executives of Solyndra repeatedly lied and deceived
The DOE to get a $535 million loan guarantee
2.2 billion sales of solar panels that simply did not exist
But with Holder head not of the DOJ but the DOPO  prosecution of these felons he would resist
Was the $535 million fraud too small, was the evidence of fraud really that weak?
Or could prosecution not be brought while a second term Obama was trying to seek?
DOPO’s marching orders contain but one and only one goal
To protect Obama from any scandal even if it means to sell the integrity of the DOJ’s
The DOPO anagram does not mean the lawyers of the DOJ are stupid or dumb
They are from the finest law schools alums
No it means Department of Protecting Obama
No matter the scandal, no matter the fiscal trauma
Holder did his job well for DOPO but the DOJ’s impartiality and integrity is in tatters
Once again thanks to Holder, the foundations of our republic have been battered.

Reflections on Hurricane Katrina on the 10th Anniversary of its U.S. landfall and the beginning of its massive death and destruction:Hurricane Katrina overwhelmed levees and exploded the conventional wisdom about a shared American prosperity, exposing a group of people so poor they didn't have $50 for a bus ticket out of town. If we want to learn something from this disaster, the lesson ought to be: America's poor deserve better than this.” Michael Eric Dyson, noted American professor, author and radio host

Michelle's Diet Tossed Into The Trash

It should come as no surprise to any parent that fruits and vegetables for young kids end up in the trash
Federal micromanagement of the federal school lunch program wasting a lot of taxpayer cash
Michelle Obama has been in the forefront of healthy eating to extol
Fruits, vegetables, low fat meats and grains whole
But if the kids will not eat what the feds demand the schools serve
Here is an idea that might our tax dollars conserve
The feds have absolutely no business enforcing menus for kids
Especially when the selections from the trays the children quickly rid
A better way would be to give parents the cash and let them buy what goes into their kids’ lunch sacks
From memories of school days at lunch I could hardly wait to it unpack
Sometimes very rarely my mother would select something from a taste standpoint did not belong
But there was always a great chance to trade the item to make the lunch right by trading the wrong
But if the feds insists on being the overreaching diet big brother
And parents’ rights in food choices completely smother
Do what my parents watching their budget used to me always state
“Eat your vegetables in you want to see some meat and desert on your plate
Food is too precious you my son to never, ever waste
Think of the starving kids in India who do not have enough food to even taste!”

EPA Do As I Say Not As I Pollute

When it comes to a federal agency that fits the paragon of being rogue
The EPA would top the list and would certainly in the classification be in vogue
From its ineptness in dumping millions of gallons of water with toxic metals laced
A yellow marine road, an environmental disaster worthy of complete disgrace
To its war on coal that is costing jobs and our utility bills will send into the stratosphere
To cooking the books on benefits versus costs to spread rightful fear
To avoiding toilets in their Denver office and crapping in the halls
To a needed life saving road in a remote village in Alaska stall
Now we learn that this rogue agency has been fining a Wyoming rancher $37k a day
Not for dumping like them toxic wastes into a vital waterway
But building a state permitted pond to provide water for his livestock
This victim of the EPA’s heavy hand has filed suit to their overreaching block
Hope he prevails but if not, another reason to any Blue to the presidency not elect
Time for the EPA’s war on business and crippling regulations to reject

Black Male Student At Savannah State Killed

The wave of black on black shootings continues at a frightening pace that will not abate
On Thursday in what should have been a safe haven another black met a deadly fate
Not on some corner contested by rival gangs to control the drug trade
But at a college where the foundations of knowledge and future success are supposed to be laid
Christopher Sparks also known for his rap name Booley Boo was a junior at Savannah State
Heading to the Student Union for probably coffee clueless that his death would await
Who would ever thing that a Student Union on a college campus could be a killing zone?
Sparks was shot following an altercation with the killer whose identity is not yet known
Small condolences to his family and friends but at least this young man was not a victim without a name or news face
Still another black life blown away, killed most likely by another black masquerading as a member of the civilized human race

Jamyla Killed Not A Peep From Black Lives Matter Why

Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, prompting riots and the creation of Black Lives Matter
Nights of looting and burning as the rule of law in Ferguson was shattered
A false narrative of hands up don’t shoot
To justify the thugs desire to burn and loot
Even the president and Holder weighed in with FBI flooding the Ferguson scene
A reflex response to a shooting with a hate crime investigation to convene
Months later in a house near a house near that of Michael Brown
A nine year old girl with fourth grade homework to do had just sat down
Shots rang out and Jamyla soon lay dead on the floor
A black shooter whose heinous act  the Black Lives Matter crowd seems to have ignored
Only the sounds of silence, no demonstrations and no protesting parades
Do black lives matter only if a cop shoots? Give me a break, a total charade
Dozens of blacks are killed by black thugs on each and every day
Nameless in the news, no anger of the Black Lives Matter movement to display
Nameless unmourned victims except to grieving family and friends
When will Black Lives Matter be marching in the streets to protest the black on black killing trend?
Demanding more police in their neighborhoods not less
To with the community’s help to try to this murder rate suppress.

CNN Uses Outdated Polls To Bar Carly

Money may be the mothers’ milk of politics that all politicians wish to lap
But momentum is the milk that drives voters to close a candidate’s gap
CNN with respect to looking at outdated polls appears to be a bunch of saps
No wonder CNN is rightfully getting a detested rap
It may be early and our presidential campaigns are way too long
But CNN’s rules that determine who is on the prime debate stage are just wrong
Carly Fiorina is on fire and the one person Hillary’s war on women can crush
Compared to the potential liar in chief whom down the toilet she will flush
The idea of the media being the gatekeeper to determine when and who will appear
Brings into question why the RNC would to such idiocy rules adhere
If I were the head of the RNC I would demand CNN use the Fox polling mode or drop CNN like a hot rock
Return to Fox with 28 million viewers last time; how many more viewers to see Carly and Trump to their TVs would flock?
In Hillary’s War on Women that will be waged 24/7 why give her another trump card to display
“Reds glass ceiling is so thick even Carly is pushed out of the debate  by the RNC on her appearance saying nay.”
