Then there’s the Oregon Energy Dept. – $20 million scorched in bad loans to green energy nutbars. Oregon Treasurer Ted Wheeler opines on this mess: “It’s in trouble.” Thank you, Captain Obvious. Yo, Ted – did it ever occur to you that these greenies only came to you because there wasn’t a bank in the world that would risk their own money on a loan to them?

So now Ted and his merry band in Salem want to teach us how to manage Gramma’s nest egg?



  1. Your golden fleece awards are just stupid . They are presented out of the context that might explain them. Taking a broader view

    Who are they?
    Are you unaware of how government works?
    The awards are whiney and unhelpful. So much of the media seems content to be whiney and in attack mode.
