    Go green

    Beyond the Obama Administration’s $2.1 million tax credit, Suntech received a $1.5 million Arizona tax credit, along with another $500,000 from the city of Goodyear, AZ for job training.

  • Ratboy

    CAAATHY!!!! Woo Woo Woo Woo!!! :lol:

  • Coffee Steve

    Howdy Cathy, careful with Doug, he’s in a sassy mood today :-)

    By the way folks California is now going to consider taxing e-mails. :roll:

  • Coffee Steve


    I see you guys got rid of Tubby too. I said to you along time ago, he is a good coach a very likeable man, but he is what we called in Kentucky a sweet 16 coach.

    But I did some reporting when he left Kentucky and he was NOT forced out here, he just wanted to go somewhere with less pressure to win it all.

  • Coffee Steve


    Yesterday Kentucky passed a Pension Reform Bill, and all hell has hit around here. The Teachers Unions are getting all kinds of flack here and the over whelming majority of voters here have had it up to their necks with the packages they have got over the years.

    As for this area…

    *State threatens JCPS with takeover (Jefferson County Public Schools)
    Jefferson County Public Schools must better train its principals and remove union obstructions at its lowest-performing schools — part of a host of changes the district has to make to avoid a state takeover of those schools’ turnaround efforts.

  • Jeff

    Hey Doug Z

    The company makes around 90 percent of all rifles in Russia, according to Lenta.ru. Its most famous the AK 47 or simply the Kalashnikov has been a favorite with armies, rebels and smugglers for half a century. However, last year the company made a net loss of over $80 million and its production in monetary terms fell by 45 percent.

    Governments in nine states have awarded at least $49 million in subsidies in the past five years to gun and ammunition makers whose products are under scrutiny after last month’s school shooting in Connecticut.

    Almost 85 percent of those tax breaks or grants have gone to two companies: Olin Corp. (OLN), the Clayton, Missouri-based maker of Winchester-brand bullets and shotgun shells, and a unit of Freedom Group Inc., the Madison, North Carolina-based company that produces the rifle used in the Dec. 14 killing of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
    The subsidies from state and local governments are attracting attention after high-profile mass murders last year, which also included a July shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater that killed 12. Lawmakers and gun-control advocates are pressing to stop aid for weapons manufacturing, saying it does little to create new jobs and isn’t worth the social costs.
    Florida Subsidizes Gun Makers while Cutting Spending on Mental Health and School Safety

    Lawmakers in Florida consider tax breaks for gun manufacturers a higher priority than funding for mental health or school safety.
    Last year, the legislature eliminated $1.8 million from school safety programs, while Governor Rick Scott vetoed $5.7 million for mental health services.
    But lawmakers made sure $10?million in taxpayer money was available to help weapons makers, as well as Hollywood production companies and video game designers that produce violent entertainment.

    Doug Z

    There was an article last week or the week before about this possibility. The article said that the Chinese government would no longer help prop up the Suntech along with several other Chinese solar companies. Evidently the Chinese government had been lending or subsidizing these companies in the past so that they could pay the interest on the company bonds. I guess they have finally realized the futility of throwing good money after bad. Evidently, this is now a reality.

    @Coffee, Yesterday Kentucky passed a Pension Reform Bill, and……….

    One day these chronic “nipple suckers” are going to realize that these types of pensions are the main reason why Cities are in Debt.

    A city that doesn’t ask for 1 cent towards their medical coverage?? Come on!

    Philly, Chicago, Detroit, multiple cities in Cali……

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning Jeff
    One day these chronic “nipple suckers” are going to realize that these types of pensions are the main reason why Cities are in Debt.

    The sad thing here Jeff is that only 2 counties Jefferson, (Louisville) (Largest) & Fayette County (Lexington) 2nd largest are the ones that are bringing the whole system down, the rest of the unions and systems have been outstanding in their demands, and I truly think this vote which was by BOTH GOP and DEMS and was a HUGE margin win is because of those 2 counties.

    Other than these 2 areas the Unions have major support (Even By Me) on our Bullitt Co School system here. My Kid is homeschooled but NOT because of the school system here, they are outstanding in this county.

    My hope is the statewide Union gets busted and they form individual ones so we can give our hometown systems the credit and money and support they deserve.

  • Coffee Steve

    *Cyprus Banks Opening: Guards Prepare for Battle…
    No money allowed to leave country…

    Keep an eye out on our markets guys, the entire global market is tanking now

  • Ratboy

    Lets see if the loons can understand this from the mouth of an Obamaclown without pictures!!

    Sebelius: Yep, ObamaCare is raising insurance costs

    A watershed moment in the ongoing disaster of ObamaCare, as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius finally admits that health insurance premiums are rising because of the President’s health insurance takeover, per the Wall Street Journal:

  • 1966

    good morning everybody
    sunny and 29 degrees here.
    @coffee steve
    we have a new athletic directer here and he and tubby didn’t get along.tubby I think new sunday nite his days were numbered as coach of the gophers. reaction is about 50-50 to his being let go.

  • Coffee Steve

    reaction is about 50-50 to his being let go.

    Here, more wanted him to stay than leave, but that was because of Donna (His Wife for those who don’t know) she was FANTASTIC and loved by everyone here. When he resigned there was a symbolic letter drawn up asking her to stay (I signed it) :-)

  • Coffee Steve


    I am tupid :-)

    Once I had a Star Trek lunch box for all my kids (4 at the time) and now I read this

    Trekkie Lunch Box For $1450 :-(

    I’ve lost out on 5800 bucks

  • Jeff

    @I’ve lost out on 5800 bucks

    OMG! Now don’t ya wish you were a hoarder?

  • 1966

    @coffee steve
    donna was loved here to and will be missed.
    also are you going to see the lone ranger movie opening july 3? johnny depp is playing tonto.

  • Coffee Steve


    I do Now LOL


    Yep, we will be seeing it, and now a surprise and I am 100% dead serious, one of my sons in law is the exact twin double of him (Depp) honest truth is if you seen him walking down the street you would truly believe it was Depp. So when you see the next Pirates Movie and The Lone Ranger you’ll have seen my Son In Law

  • Jeff

    A comment from a clown that is surprised about a price increase FOR ANY REASON for medical insurance.

    “Can’t fix stupid?”

    Reality check…….Insurance costs go up when the sun rises. Surprise!

    Personally I care more about healthcare for all, not just profits for insurance companies. How Liberal!

    Insurance cost going up because more people enroll or receive proper and full care. How liberal!

    I just love cultural Christians, WWJD?……ask for their insurance card before healing them? I think not!


  • Mikey O

    @DougZ Yes more worry Stagflation will be going on a tear soon, the CPI has been keep low beacuse of housing prices and wages. With housing prices increasing, but wages still flat the CPI numbers are bound to go up some. If it happens to fast it will be like the 70’s again price controls and higher rates, but the kicker this time is the debt rates cant go to high like they did in the 70’s if they did most of the monthly tax revenue would just go to pay interest on the debt. Then there will be on choice but massive cuts everywhere and tax increases just like greece.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Doug & Mickey O

    Remember when it got so bad Nixon actually froze prices, on everything? Food gas etc…

    Funny thing was it actually worked and inflation started dropping. Then Jimmy Carter came in and ruined everything.
