Arizona's Rep. Giffords goes moonbat on Petraeus
Fellow Americans, you have got to be kidding me. This isn't possible. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), a sitting member of Congress, did not ask General David Petraeus, who flew half way around the world to address battle issues-she did NOT ask him about SOLAR-POWERED STREET LIGHTS!
Oh, yes she did!
Following in the footsteps of Hank Johnson (D-GA), whose concern about Guam capsizing set the bar, Giffords prodded the most important man in the military on SUSTAINABLE ENERGY BASES.
"In places like Kandahar, where we have a large presence, we have been plugged into a very unsustainable and incapable grid system. We know that a major part of the upcoming Kandahar offensive will include some serious repairs and upgrades to the energy system, which will include small-scale solar and hydropower systems and also some solar-powered street lights.... I'm just curious, General, whether or not there's plans to utilize any of these same technologies at our bases around Afghanistan, and wouldn't that greatly reduce our need for fuel?"
We're punked. According to Giffords' web-page, the Vice Chair of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition is "taking the lead in Congress to promote increased use of renewable energy at military installations."
In other words, forget jihad-what's the point of winning if the lights are coal-powered? The fact is, green energy is unsustainable. Hope and pray that Gabs loses in November. Support Brian Miller in Arizona-8.
