No-Bid Solar Contracts?
by

At the Denver signing ceremony of the stimulus bill, President Obama was introduced by Blake Jones, the president of Namaste Solar Electric, a Colorado-based company that installs solar panels. Jones, chosen to highlight the importance of so-called “green collar jobs,” spoke of how his company grew from 3 employees to 55 in a matter of a few years, but now needs handouts from the government given the weak economic climate. Ironically, Jones cut his teeth in the engineering field working in the Middle East for the most evil of evil corporations, serving under the devil himself.  According to Namaste’s website, “sarting in 1996, he worked for many years as a civil engineer and project manager at Halliburton/Brown & Root, an international oil services company. During this time, Blake spent 2 years working in Egypt where he honed his project management and engineering design skills.” KBR, if you recall, was the Halliburton division at the center of the left’s hissy fit over no-bid contracts in Iraq, and back in 1996, none other than Dick Cheney was CEO of the company.
