I have never seen you criticize that use of a tragedy.

So? If I were less credulous, I might think you merely a cheap manipulator, trying to make others do your dance. But you'd never be less than forthright in your dealings.

Is that your idea of an April Fool's joke?

No, this.

The government is not writing checks out of the general fund to pay people to drill for oil.

So, the trillions of taxpayer dollars we've spent on wars to protect energy interests just don't count? The hundreds of thousands of lives that were spent in these wars, counting the civilian casualities?

You might have an answer to that question if you weren't one of the "people who don't really understand this stuff".

And you're worried about 30% of the cost of solar panels. You're a special kind of person, you are.

Is there any other mainstream technology that repeatedly makes outlandish claims, and just shrugs it off as if it never happen when those claims don't deliver, and yet gets massive taxpayer-sponsored support?

Coal, hydraulic fracturing, the pharmaceutical industry. The defense industry.

Shall I go on?

Well, let me not be confused with one of #OccupyResoluteDesk's throne sniffers.
But using a tragedy like that in a prophetic mode is tasteless. As tasteless as the idiotic Indiana protests designed to distract from Her Majesty's email fiasco, and SecState Kerry's rodeo-clownery. Or the whip cracking on Menendez's back to keep those Democrat Senators on the plantation.
Were there less at stake, maybe some of this buffoonery would be amusing.
