    The firm was publicly touted by Barack Obama, who praised them for their "successes" with green issues. He did not at any time tell the public their $535 million taxpayer dollars being loaned from stimulus funds was being given to a company that had a history of financial problems.

    He also sent in the FBI with warrants, which means that other creditors who loaned Solyndra money on the strength of a tout from the bully pulpit will likely not get their money back.

    Do you think it's right for the federal government to be in the loanshark business using the FBI to collect?

    Nope. However, the Solyndra failure stinks to high heaven. There is definately cause for an investigation into who stole all that money. Then get it back and crucify them.

    It's Fannie and Freddie all over again, except this time Obama called in the FBI to collect papers on his loansharking deal in behalf of the taxpayers of the USA.

    The only trouble is, he aced out the private loan associations who are also lending victims and who also were not paid.

    Can the Administration use the FBI to assume the bill collector's role with armed removal of their information? What is going to happen to the private industries who are getting stiffed as well?

    When Government starts picking winners and losers by granting preferential loans, tax credits, and using regulatory schemes to punish or reward businesses, there is bound to be fraud, waste and abuse. The Solyndra representative visited the White House 20 times, then suddenly out of nowhere, they get a half a BILLION dollars from the Feds? This stinks to high heaven. Obama is the King of crony capitalism.

    Yeppers. My question is, why is the FBI being recruited in to do the loanshark end of the deal? Aren't the FBI supposed to investigate terrorists and such?

    What has this nation become?

    It depends if Solyndra signed a contract with the government, that they must produce a certain ammount of solar panels. If they have no contract then the government is covering it's tracks

    Why is the FBI, hands full with terrorists wanting to get at us all, being sidetracked as a common loanshark functioning agency is my quesiton.

    Oh, the $535 million (over half a billion) was given to this shaky outfit out of taxpayer money doled out by Obama as "stimulus."

    It's a national scandal, far worse than Watergate. The question is, will the press notice?

    Oh, it's been going on for a very long time. The foundation for the corruption was laid before WWI.
