Big oil man preaching alternatives, discuss.
he wants the gov't to finance his wind power, which we will then have to buy from him.
so, he gets windmills built cheap and profits off it.
I understand that he's in it to make a buck, or billions of them, but the big picture seems right. He's the only one coming up with a definitive, doable plan right now. I don't hear any of our countries supposed leaders comming up with something.
I saw his commercial, it makes sense.
B, I see exactly what you're saying but do you see anything wrong with his method besides him making money? Maybe you see something I can't/don't see...
we could stop importing oil if we would just drill here on the home land we have more than they do.
I don't keep up on this stuff but why do they (government?) not want to drill here?
im not sure but i think because its a protected part of the country for wild life and crap lol
Because environmentalist vote, and it's another anti-right wing sector of the populace that the democrats can pander to for votes.
Is your problem with the government helping finance it? Or him profiting from it? Do you have a link to the proposed implementation of his plan?
My problem with it is that he's like one of the richest people in the world.... at least in the top 50.
He can build this on his own with his own money.
My problem is paying to build something and then pay to use it too.
Did you pay to build the rollercoaster? or did you just pay for your ride on it?
That's my problem with it.
It's a good plan, but i think it govt' gets involved, gov't should own it, and regulate the prices of the power/product it produces.
Is he trying to get the .gov to foot the whole bill? Do you have a link to his plan? I read the site, but something third party that goes into detail about it? I totally agree with you, I'd just like to read something more about how it is going to be implemented.
The govt subsidies many things in this country. I wouldn't mind my tax dollars going to something like this, hell they go to pay for much more ridiculous things. Ending the transfer of billions of dollars to people who consider us "the great Satan" is very important. And if he can get richer in the process, good for him. "God bless America" and go free enterprise. Lets keep our money, or more of it, here.
Incorrect. On a list of the richest Americans, he comes in at #131. On a list of the richest people in the world, he doesn't even rank in the top 500.

I would rather see my tax dollars support this, than all the crackhead mothers that don't work.
