Excellent article, read more at Slate With the economy of the United States still dead in the water, how dumb is it the Obama administration continue to walk the same path as Germany on solar power? If you total up the solar companies that have gone bankrupt after recieving stimulus cash it has to total over a Billion dollars and those are just the ones who've gone BK so far. Solyndra, ener1, Axiom, Evergreen, Spectrawatt and many others. Are the Democrats running this country so economically incompetent that they are incapable of learning from the mistakes of others like Germany? The Republicans need 19 seats in the House and 13 in the Senate to stop the madness and the Democrats from putting out great grand kids in the poor house for life. Yes, we can in 2012.
