A judge revoked the $2 million bond Monday for indicted businessman Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who has raised thousands of dollars for Barack Obama and Illinois politicians.

Even so, Mr Sellwood says the government has not set up the support mechanisms needed to encourage householders to invest in energy saving measures."
Yes. Those support mechanisms would be known as the Gestapo, except instead of being run by Nazis, the new Gestapo would be run by green shirt wearing greentards. The greentards won't be happy until everybody is living cardboard boxes. Feck these people are stupid.
