See if you can spot the pattern ... aka, "Where's Waldope?"


As America's debt rises to unsustainable levels, the U.S. government is losing billions every year on energy tax subsidies that do little to combat climate change. 

That's according to a tough report released this week by the National Research Council. The non-partisan academic report concluded that current tax policies are a "poor tool" for addressing climate change -- and a costly one.

It found energy subsidies in 2011 and 2012 cost $48 billion, with limited results. 

"Very little if any GHG (greenhouse gas) reductions are achieved at substantial cost with these provisions," the report concluded. More here:

LOL ... they report this as if "facts" matter.

First of all, "climate change" is a ruse to get you to pipe down while they are peeling your wallet.  And they need to peel your wallet because they are busy shoveling money to their buddies and donors (and the professoriat.)  No longer do they feel the need to hide it.   No longer do they try to restrain themselves.  No.  They shovel it out by the BILLIONS and when they run out, they borrow more and squander it ... faster and faster before you shut the whole party down.

Because, guess what, in the 70's they called it global cooling and the solution was for them to tax everything in sight, and shut down oil drilling and coal fired power plants.  
 
Then it became "global warming" in the 90's and the solution was for them to tax everything in sight, and shut down oil drilling and coal fired power plants.  Oh yes. 
 
Then it was no longer warming so they renamed it "climate change" ... and the solution was for them to tax everything in sight, shut down oil drilling and coal fired power plants.  Are you seeing a pattern, Ellie Mae?  Probably not, or you'd be squealing like a pig for politicians to knock it off.

Instead, politicians are taxing the crap out of you at the pump and the electric company.  Oh, they claim they are only taxing "big oil/coal" ... but where do you think big oil/coal get their money?  For that matter, where do you think "the rich" get their money?  Where do you think evil corporations get their money?  That's right, Einstein.
