Doesn't it make you happy to know how dismally the companies picked to receive the contents of your bank accounts are doing? Don't you wish the EPA would take even MORE of your money to flush down the toilet?

All this in the name of 'saving gaia' yet which, even if all companies listed were doing well, would do absolutely nothing to reduce the temperature of the earth.

Crony capitalism at its' best, aka payback time to Obama buddies using your money and mine.
