Phil Gordon, Mayor of Phoenix, believes in cheating not only Phoenix taxpayers but also the taxpayers of the country. The Phoenix Business Journal has a piece today about Mayor Phil Gordon heading to DC this week to meet with the Obama administration and to beg federal government agencies for bailout moneyto fund a new scam — a “Green” college.
The supposed mission of this new campus will be for environmental and sustainable architecture, engineering, and workforce development. What adds a new dimension to this money grab of taxpayer dollars is that ASU has already increased the number of “green” classes on its campuses.
Folks, this is simply about extorting more money from the taxpayers. Check out this opinion piece featured in the Washington Examiner. The final line sums it up:
When America is in recession, the last thing we can afford to do is destroy more jobs than we create in the name of “stimulus.” The American people deserve to hear the truth about “green jobs.” Unfortunately, as long as Al Gore and his allies continue to have the loudest bullhorns, they won’t.
The deal is that this is just a move to create an even bigger government with more regulation on business, industry, and individual liberties. Not to mention the unlawful taking of taxpayer money with even less accountability. It looks like Phil Gordon definitely has a green finger in the air. Unfortunately, it appears that it is not just his green thumb that he is showing to the taxpayers.
