Mahalo Cali!

"Obama administration to unveil major new rules targeting segregation across U.S."

"The new rules, a top demand of civil-rights groups, will require cities and towns all over the country to scrutinize their housing patterns for racial bias and to publicly report, every three to five years, the results."

Thank you for this, Stellar!

This is wonderful, apple.. and of course gets a big yawn on DU.. LOLOLOL

We need to expand opportunities for more families to reap the benefits of using cleaner sources of energy that can also help households save money on their utility bills,” Brian Deese, Obama’s top energy adviser, told reporters. While U.S. solar capacity has expanded exponentially and, not unrelatedly, become increasingly inexpensive, over the past decade, its benefits have been largely denied to about half of all American households, either because their roofs are too small or they are rental properties. The White House plans to address that by installing small, community solar farms into which entire neighborhoods can tap. By 2020, it wants to triple the solar capacity installed in federally subsidized housing to 300 megawatts — and will be unveiling more than $520 million in commitments from “charities, investors, states and cities” to encourage solar’s growth in lower-income communities.

It already is ..

After Solyndra Loss, U.S. Energy Loan Program Turning A Profit

snip//

Beacon Power President and CEO Barry Brits, at the company's plant in Hazle Township, Pa. He says a loan from the Department of Energy made it possible for his company to develop its flywheel energy storage technology.

In 2011, solar panel company Solyndra defaulted on a $535 million loan guaranteed by the Department of Energy. The agency had a few other high-profile bankruptcies, too — electric car company Fisker and solar company Abound among them. But now that loan program has started turning a profit.

Overall, the agency has loaned $34.2 billion to a variety of businesses, under a program designed to speed up development of clean-energy technology. Companies have defaulted on $780 million of that — a loss rate of 2.28 percent. The agency also has collected $810 million in interest payments, putting the program $30 million in the black.

Here's to President Obama and his EOs, yallerdawg!


Oh Shite! I could never see

the hide, either.. figured it was in a subthread where I had somebody on ignore.

Damn, 1StrongBlackMan.. I'm so sorry the alert police are trying to censor you.. and that goes straight to juries where there are "85% Bernie Supporters"(got those stats from Skinner) on DU.. so you do the math. It's like a damn crap shoot stacked against us.. especially those who are more outspoken

It's a metaphorical mine field.. you can't say anything but agree with them or they'll alert on you. You last Hide is solid proof! And, Skinner says there's no abuse in the jury system.. or something to that effect. I'm so disappointed in his not being able to see that.

But, I am glad there are so many people Rec this thread, though.. At least these members don't want you silenced.



They weren't "whistleblowers".. they dropped thousands of documents they didn't even know what

was in them.

Chelsea Manning admitted her crimes unlike Snowden who hacked, stole, ran, leaked, and hid out in Russia.

And, Edward Snowden is anything but "honest".

This is the Barack Obama Group .. you have to the whole rest of the board to drop your ignorant cheap pot shots.

The African American Voters have been carrying so much Water for Democratic Candidates, Gen!

And, I appreciate and love them for it! The candidate who doesn't get this should definitely not be the nominee for POTUS.. Jim Webb is actively making an ass out of himself over it..

Yeah, Webb .. wouldn't want to be the person that the Black community would vote for, too.

A post from MADem.. in that same thread..

‘I think they could do better with white, working people and I think this last election showed that,’ Webb said, referencing the 2014 midterms where Republicans took control of the Senate and added more power in the House. ‘The Democratic Party could do very well to return to its Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots where the focus of the party was making sure that all people who lack a voice in the corridors of power could have one through the elected represented.'”

Webb went on to say, “You are not going to have a situation again where you have 96% of the African American vote turning out for one presidential candidate
.”

As MADem said.. "Yep...there's a dogwhistle element going on there, it does seem...."

The Dem Nominee will want President Obama campaigning with them and for them.. ie the Obama Coalition and it's going to be a beautiful thing.

Thank you for your crucial OP, Gen~

".. it's pretty obvious that his ginormous personality is way too powerful for her to stand up to."

Bernie would be so proud of you!

Or not.. more than a couple of Bernie's supporters have called you to self-delete your ignorant, sexist post."

The OP is a perfect illustration of what's been happening on DU! I love it!



Deny all you want.. doesn't make it any less true!
