The Corn Squeezins Won't Do It.

When my previous employer finally shut down a couple years ago I signed up for a course that would prepare you for "the growing future of Ethanol." By the time my name came up I already had a job and didn't see any point in going to another state for several weeks to train for a job I probably wouldn't get. Now I don't feel so bad about it.

Ethanol is not the solution. It never was.

Even California is giving up on it. When California gives up on a liberal idea you know it's a bad one.

Should we stop development and research on it. By no means. We need to explore every reasonable option but we can't go jumping on something that is totally unproven.

We just can't use it as an excuse not to drill. In spite of the thoughtlessly spouted and totally meaningless left-wing slogan We can't drill our way out of this, we really need to drill more of our own oil.

The leftards won't drill until we have no other option, but when it does happen, they will be decrying that we're in this position because of the right. We need to drill because we are at least fifteen (15) years out before a plausible solution can be mass produced.

There is talk that Ethanol is more polluting than gasoline. Kind of funny considering the libs were so intent on it.

Ethanol was and is a SCAM of the highest order perpetrated only to make people FEEL good. THIS is only PART of what you get when you sacrifice facts and reality for feelings and eMOtions.

Good. Now more corn to heat our houses with.

Have you checked out what Mark Levin said about ethanol in Liberty and Tyranny?

Talk about a boondoggle -- thinking of ethanol as "the solution to our energy problems"! The cost of feeding corn-fed livestock has gone to the moon, and the wheat fields plowed under as farmers scramble to sell their corn at an elevated price.

Plus, my cars don't run as well on the ethanol mixture.

Ethanol is a terrific scam brought to you by the REPUBLICAN farm states who, thanks to the "genius" (LMAO) of the founders who came up with this kluge, have a large voice in legislation despite their minuscule numbers.

I was a farm state welfare program brought to you by the right.

Meanwhile, it's still a good idea to clamp down on supply so that you right wingers don't climb back into your SUV's or run around like a bunch of whiny pukes that your "choice" of vehicles is being restricted.

Controlling other people's property, in this private transportation, is what you people are all about and you're not even ashamed of it.
