It Can Be Profitable To Be A FOG

Gore-Backed Car Firm Gets Large U.S. Loan

WASHINGTON -- A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000

Read the rest of the article, it's quite enlightening. I thought this paragraph said it all though.

Isn't that GREAT!? Oir tax dollars going to forward the FINNISH ECONOMY, compliments of an ex American VP?
The irony just keeps coming up, Chuck. I'm surprised this wasn't a gift from the stimulus package.
Think he'll pay it back?

So when Obama said, "I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody",he wasn't just talking about domestically?

Who knew?

The US government is in hock up to our necks, and we turn around and loan $529M to a Finnish Co. to build expensive, luxury hybreds!

To be sure, the inmates are running this asylum!

Al Gore's load of bogus environmental data has made him loads of money. Looks like now he's loading up those who share his agenda.

Doesn't the production of cars produce carbon?

Z, stunning

Mustang, welcome back. Didn't mean to shock you, I know you thought this would all be fixed while you were gone.

Patriot, half a billion!!!

Khaki, I guess what I wonder is if he has stake in this company, the article doesn't say

Leslie, your just splitting hairs now, we have to trust Gore to do the right thing.
