Invest in Green Jobs, Destroy Economy, Get a Free Concert

This may be quite the shocking headline for those of you from here in  the Bakken oil country of Montana who likely spent good money hopping on the Allegiant Air flight to Las Vegas for the Bon Jovi concert recently: “Invest in green energy, destroy your economy, see Bon Jovi for free.” 

That was the suggested headline from a listener to our statewide radio talk show, “Voices of Montana.” The Great Falls listener notes the heavy investment in “green jobs” in Spain. 

Full e-mail from a listener in Great Falls is included below:  

Aaron, the economy is such a disaster in Spain due to huge investments in the debacle called “green energy” that liberal progressive rocker (Bon Jovi) initially left Madrid off the venue because he feared the concert would not sell out.
Apparently, the conscience must of got the best of the “capitalist one per-center” Bon Jovi so now he is going to perform in Spain for free. In the meantime he will charge (top dollar) for tickets sold in the UK. Where’s the fairness in that? Just because Spain threw their money down the (green energy rat hole) doesn’t mean the good people in England should be punished.
Oh well, here’s a headline,

See story here.  Here’s an excerpt:

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi said he has decided to give a free concert in Madrid next month because he is afraid fans couldn’t afford the full price of a ticket.

Bon Jovi  told Spain’s El Mundo  newspaper when he was planning this summer’s European leg of his “Because We Can-The Tour,” he initially left Madrid off the schedule, fearing the show would not sell out due to Spain’s hard-hit economy.
