Cheap Zithromax 1g, Since President Obama signed the stimulus bill in early 2009, Washington has spent over $100 billion of it "transforming" America to a green electric grid. In Michigan alone, hundreds of millions have been distributed to rich utilities to upgrade to "smart grid" systems to enable better power management to accommodate electric cars, to rich multinationals like Dow and LGChem to produce batteries, and to wind energy projects run by rich institutions like Dow Corning, 500mg Cheap Zithromax 1g, Michigan Aerospace, and the University of Michigan
And on Thursday, the city of Detroit - one of the nation's largest and poorest cities - lost power. 30mg Cheap Zithromax 1g, Is there a better metaphor for the Obama Administration's Utopian transformation of America than the Detroit Power blackout of 2011.
Like Obama nationally, Michigan has ignored its biggest city's power infrastructure and instead poured money into quixotic wind projects on Lake Michigan and Lake Huron to feed the state's Renewable Power Standard - as well as the ideological demands of Washington.
"A wind turbine has over 8,000 individual parts and they all can be made right here in Michigan, Cheap Zithromax 1g ebay," said Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow upon handing her state $1.9 million in wind pork in July, 2009, Cheap Zithromax 1g. "I am pleased these grants will support the important research efforts happening across our state as we continue to lead the way in developing clean energy technologies in the 21st century economy."
Meanwhile, Detroit's antiquated, 200mg Cheap Zithromax 1g, electric structure can't even provide power through two 95-degree days before imploding. City officials said the blackout - which took down all of the city's major municipal buildings including city hall, museums, and courts - was "caused by extreme power demand for air conditioning after two days of temperatures in the 90s." Really. Just two days, 100mg Cheap Zithromax 1g. And what happens when summer comes. Cheap Zithromax 1g, Vice President Biden told TIME magazine in 2010 about stimulus brainstorming sessions with "Obama about an all-in push for a smarter electrical grid that would reduce blackouts, promote renewables and give families more control over their energy diet: 'We said, "God, wouldn't it be wonderful. Why don't we invest $100 billion. Let's just go build it!"'"
So how's that working for you, Cheap Zithromax 1g coupon, Detroit.
The city's antiquated electric lines from its 1927-vintage, natural gas-and-oil-fueled Mistersky power plant failed, plunging the city into darkness. But Green Obama doesn't have time for these "20th century" sources of energy, Cheap Zithromax 1g india. He's busy remaking the Rust Belt into the Green Belt - in the memorable words of his former green disciple in the governor's office, Jennifer Granholm, Cheap Zithromax 1g.
Why, you might ask while we're on the subject, does Detroit have its own utility at all. Cheap Zithromax 1g paypal, Because city unions refuse to give up this public jobs bank and connect to the larger grid run by Michigan's more efficient Detroit Edison utility (which produces power at less than half the cost per megawatt of Detroit' Power and Lighting Department). Mr. Obama would be proud. Cheap Zithromax 1g, Government, after all, is all about providing jobs, yes.
Obama could make a real difference in Detroit - not just in upgrading its power system (if you must spend federal money), but as a family-man model for a city with a crippling 80 percent illegitimate birth rate, 10mg Cheap Zithromax 1g. But Obama has barely visited here. He has bigger ideas to pursue.
How ironic that Detroit is a model for Democratic policy - welfare, 40mg Cheap Zithromax 1g, living wage, high taxes, city-run services - yet the collective havoc these policies have wrought on this city are so embarrassing the Liberal-in-Chief barely acknowledges its existence.
