What also needs to be mentioned are the scams to rob the taxpayer to create these Green Jobs.

Example: A few years ago, SD County was offering rebates for the purchase of low flow toilets. I bought one while I was re-modeling my home and had to fill out paperwork complete with stern warnings about replacing an old toilet, wouldn't resell, etc, etc, etc... It was like United Nations stern!

Anyway, I'm drinking a beer in a local brewery talking to the girl next to me and she casually mentions that her dad got 50 of 'em (taxpayer funded of course) and took them to Mexico and sold them!

Apparently those stern warnings didn't mean anything to him.

This was a nickle and dime program. Imagine when the Dali Obama starts throwing billions at it.

And you have to flush those damn "low capacity" toilets 3 times anyway, so it doesn't make a bit of difference.

Personally we have 70 year old "American Standard" pots that hold about 10 gallons of water, like flushing the Red Sea.

The whole idea is schizophrenic. I can see why you might want low flow toilets in Arizona. But, Seattle? Minnesota? Sheesh.

I have heard lefties whine about how water is being destroyed. It's like listening to some primitive animalistic cult. They have no idea how stupid such a statement is.

And it's Obama's fault that the father of the girl sitting next to you in a bar is a criminal? I guess he should have seen to it that every toliet taken across the border would explode on arrival.
