Obama trys to sell Solar – Wind leases on Federal land, but no one came


Here is a feel good story for a Sunday. Obama held a party and no one came. At least for now. Be sure though that he will twist a few arms to find some lucky benefactor of his largess willing to step out in the wind or sun for a buck or two. What he wants to do is tie up hundreds of thousands of acres so no other form of extracting resources will occur that might benefit you and me. Here we go:

The Obama administration has been pretty jazzed about their sweet plans to auction off leases for certain parcels of the one-third of the surface area of the United States they control, largely in the western United States, for the express purposes of developing wind and solar farms to which they hope they’ll be able to point as evidence of the success of their not-quite-”all of the above” energy agenda

I think it’s safe to surmise that the day was something of a letdown for them, via the Denver Business Journal:

The nation’s first federally run auction for a chance to develop solar power projects on public lands was a bust.

No bidders showed up for the auction by the federal Bureau of Land Management, which was held Thursday in Lakewood.

“We did not have any bidders come to the sale and we did not receive any sealed bids on the sale,” BLM spokeswoman Vanessa Lacayo said. …

“The BLM had received interest in developing the sites, that’s why we moved forward,” she said. “It’s hard to say why we didn’t have any bidders.” …

“We will evaluate today’s auction as we look at future opportunities to offer lands in Solar Energy Zones for development, both in Colorado and other Western states,” the statement said.

    Once again I’m confused. Obama has been selling shit in a bag to the American electorate, the elites, Hollywood, Wall Street, RINOS and pretty much almost anyone with a pulse; and those voters without a pulse. They would buy the Brooklyn Bridge from this fake phoney fraud but not government land leases? Hmmm, time to sweeten the pot courtesy of the US taxpayer.

      Right you are. Eric Holder to the rescue. IRS just needs to visit some of his cronies.

      The same thing crossed my mind. Otherwise, he will just have Eric Holder pay a visit to a couple of ” friends”.

    I wonder what the terms of that deal were. I would like to build a little Science Class project where a flashlight bulb were powered, oh.., maybe on a little piece of cardboard, and then, enjoy the rest of the land to live on.

      Hey, now there is a great thought. I think there is still BLM land that if you agree to live and farm on it, it is yours after a certain time.

        I would have to get Old Granny in on the idea, and she is too contrary and argumentative (Democrat/Feminazi). I really would enjoy some hunting and fishing. I sorely miss my fireplace.
