Obama says congressional vote on the solar deal is vital



December 09, 2010 – Comments (6)

WASHINGTON (TMF) -- President Barack Obama says a congressional vote on the solar deal he negotiated with the Sun will determine whether the nation's economy "moves forward or backward."

The president again pressed Congress to pass the agreement, saying it has the potential to create millions of jobs. He said if it fails, Americans would see smaller paychecks and it would result in fewer jobs.

The Sun has been rotating around the Earth under the Bush-era economic stimulus act that some critics complain has unfairly favored uneducated taxpayers over the ones who believed in the Copernican system.

The agreement would extend the Sun's spin around the Earth for two more years, offering the temperate climate to all taxpayers, including the wealthy. It also would continue the benefits of sunshine for millions of unemployed Americans and reduce the weather taxes for all workers.

Obama spoke at a White House event promoting American agriculture. The president said increasing the harvest season for U.S. crops is an economic imperative at a time when food prices are on the rise.

I think increasing the harvest season in the U.S. might be a little more possible with the judicious use of greenhouses than decreasing snow in Moscow by seeding clouds.

Don't worry, the cloud adventure is not the last life-beats-irony story to come from that part of the world. I'll have more such stories. Batman and Robin continue to provide them nearly every day...

Speak of the devil:

Translation: new mayor of Moscow proposed building special cities for elderly Moscovites on the territory of the central federal district. The proposal was made in response to a suggestion by the governor of the Belgorod province Yevgeniy Savchenko who said that Moscow should start thinking about its relocation policy. "Our country is vast - there is the Far East and then there's Siberia" - the governor added."

A "Polar Circle" retirement community in Chukotka, any volunteers?
