      Since you have no desire to prove your assertion that the three Woodland, North Carolina Planning Commission members had a financial incentive to ban the proposed solar farm in their community, then it must be considered as nothing more than wild speculation which lacks credibility.

      Your conspiratorial accusation against the Daily Kos is equally fanciful, and it warrants no additional consideration.
