When you're arrogant, careless or clueless, flying with fabricated wings, too close to the sun, soon fantasy fails, the reality of gravity kicks-in, and you plummet to earth, poor judgment the cause of death. Icarus lives! Proven, when an Administration-anointed company, solar-panel manufacturer, Solyndra, ventured too high on the wings of a flawed business plan, then, forced into bankruptcy, careened back down in a fiery, fiscal heap. Sadly, many companies have suffered untimely demise in this turbulent economy, so why single-out Solyndra? Because Fed-favorite Solyndra didn't die alone. Beyond private investors, the company took America's tax-payers down with it. And that's because, with alleged White House fast-tracking, during Stimulus-Fest 2009, the Feds handed Solyndra a "loan-guarantee" of 535-million, or in today's mega-bucks lingo, over a half-a-billion-dollars. Whether you call it a loan-guarantee, the deflection ploy the Feds favor, or simply a loan, the result is the same for the 53% of income-tax-paying Americans, who've now seen still-more mega-millions washed down the Fed commode, long-ago set to auto-flush. Adding personal insult to national injury, over 1,000 Solyndra employees have now lost their jobs, joining the millions languishing on our unemployment rolls.
