Robert Kennedy, Jr.'s BrightSource Lands $1.4 Billion Bailout

So? It's a green company. And he's a Kennedy. From Big Government:

President John F. Kennedys nephew, Robert Kennedy, Jr., netted a $1.4 billion bailout for his company, BrightSource, through a loan guarantee issued by a former employee-turned Department of Energy official.

. . .

Wagle was one of the principals in Kennedys firm who raised money for Barack Obamas 2008 presidential campaign. When Obama won the White House, Wagle was installed at the Department of Energy (DOE), advising on energy grants.

From an objective vantage point, investing taxpayer monies in BrightSource was a risky proposition at the time. In 2010, BrightSource, whose largest shareholder is Kennedys VantagePoint Partners, was up to its eyes in $1.8 billion of debt obligations and had lost $71.6 million on its paltry $13.5 million of revenue.

We guaranteed loans for an ailing company, and a former employee of Kennedy helped decide whether BrightSource got the money. Sweet.

97 The GD House should be doing NOTHING but appropriations bills for individual agencies and departments. Bills that severely cut the group or eliminate it all together if the bill is for a whole department. This with a take it or leave it message to the Senate.

Anything else is a damn waste of time and a PR stunt. That's what this BS bill for concealed carry is. Salve for the base just before they OK a GD tax increase.

Or better yet, from their perspective, the supercommittee takes care of that tax increase automatically.

You couldn't pay me to get on a plane with a Kennedy either.
Deaths on planes with Kennedys: 6Deaths in cars with Kennedys: 1, plus 1 paralyzed.I would take my chances in a car, going to a ski resort to play golf with a Kennedy before getting on a plane with one. All of that only adds up to 3 deaths and a wheelchair.

Since Obama's election, I've been preparing for this day by paying strangers to kick me in the nuts on a daily basis.And with a nightly regimen of shoving arugula up my pooper, I have finally grown quite accustomed to further bad news from this administration. Perhaps a 4 year plan of substance abuse, I might get through another 4 years.

108 Obama inherited a $10.6 trillion public debt when he was elected, give him another 4 years and he could double what it took 200 years to accumulate. Obama's unknown year wandering the dessert, was it studying at the Mugabe school of economics?

Get 500 million loan. Put it in Ally bank for a year at 0.89%. Declare bankruptcy and just give back the 500 million. Pocket the 4.5 million of interest.
