The White House is now environmentally friendly! In response to thousands of requests and demands, solar panels have been mounted on the roof of the President’s house. Four years after then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu pledged that solar panels and a solar water heater would be installed on the White House roof, the job was finally completed. The American-made panels convert sunlight into energy and now the President can say he practices what he preaches when it comes to the use of clean energy!

Just another way governmental bullshit hinders people’s personal freedoms!

The FAA is looking into things.
