    No, it doesn't. It means that Warren Buffet shits $2 Billion, so he can buy cool shit like this on the side to satisfy his inner liberal while he makes a very conservative fortune.

    An infusion of a huge amount of capital cured Solyndra's woes. This should go as well.

    photovoltaic farm =/= solar panel manufacturer. You're comparing apples to hand grenades.

    I'm comparing solar to solar. It's a joke. The industry, that is.

    It would be like comparing Waste Management's landfill business to the company who manufactures garbage trucks. They both deal with your smelly old shit. Same thing right?

    Or because it's probably a nice tax break for "investing in renewable energy" or some such shit.

    There's always that, but Warren Buffet doesn't care about that these days, he's all politics and running his company.

    Current market cap for Berkshire Hathaway (just the big one) is over $200 Billion, and Buffet is a known hard core liberal when he wants to show it in public, that's all this is.

    I seem to remember a certain Mayor from Bofuston bashing gays for "voting against their interests", wonder if that applies to billionaire liberals who complain that they don't pay enough taxes and support democrats who are for increasing taxes on the wealthy?

    It's easy to be a Liberal when you're dirt poor and dumb or a billionaire and smart.

    I'm guessing he's a lot smarter then most of the lot here and realizes there's always positive opportunities to make more money in any economy.

    in kommifornia, the power companies have to get 35% or so of their power from faggy(green cock sucking) methods of generation like wind and solar

    so investing here is pretty much a sure thing as the amount of fag power is still limited

    they are building wind turbines like mad since it is going to be paid for by the consumers who will wake up when their power bills double or triple. The cost of wind/solar is double to triple of that so guess who is going to pay?

    they will say "why didn't they do something about this?"

    we had a chance in 2010 with proposition 23 but it lost

    now we are going to be living like the taliban since the rates of energy here are already 3 times higher than the rest of the country thanks to Gray Davis

    that's why the power companies are trying to get as many people to put solar on their homes as this is a way to get the percentage on fag power higher

    there is even a company which will install solar on your house for free and they sell you a cheaper rate of energy than you pay for form the utility companies but they get to sell the excess power to the utilities and that pays for the investment

    the only way fag energy works is if the overbearing governments mandate it by driving consumers to it by price choice

    tyrannical government

    They are building a brand new natural gas cogen plant down the road from my house. Burning dead dinosaurs is still widely performed here.

    Is that generated from the friction of a dick going in an asshole?

    If he wants to invest private capital, good for him. That is how it is supposed to work.
