"Obama triggered a backlash from labor unions and pay equity advocates who say Wal-Mart pays low wages and who archly noted that Obama has made pay equity a central issue of his presidency."

Labor can get over it.

Obviously Obama is not praising Walmart's Labor Policies. He's praising their alternative energy plans.

The use of solar power in the United States has increased TEN FOLD since Obama became President.

And that's because Obama, being the responsible Democratic leader he is, wants a future America that has not been devastated by the effects of accelerated global warming and pollution.

Contrast Obama's forward thinking to Reagan's regressive attitudes. Almost immediately upon assuming the Presidency, Reagan had the solar panels ripped off the top of the White House that had been installed during Carter's time in office.

Reagan wanted to make the point that as a good "Conservative," he could waste just as much energy and pollute the atmosphere as much as he wanted to with good old fossil fuels like a REAL American, and not some sissy Liberal tree hugger.

It's not a wonder, Conservatives revere Reagan, is it?

Fossil fuels have been demonized for political gains. It's been the engine of the American economy, and lively hood.


Over five hundred million dollars has been spent on burning fossil fuel for presidential vacation flights.

Add all other politicians, and it's alot. Why not have solar power planes?

"Over five hundred million dollars has been spent on burning fossil fuel for presidential vacation flights?"

Obama spent half a billion dollars just on fuel for his Airforce One so he could go on vacation huh?

Hmmmm . . . That sounds a lot like another one of those big ol' Right Wing LIES. They never end, do they?

Got sources? . . . BTW bogus RW websites are NOT legit.
