The EPA is way out of bounds on this one. When are we going to say "enough is enough is too much"? 15% ethanol blended gasolines in autos- yeah my ass. Big Ag - walk softly and carry a big STICK IT TO YA. EPA approves more ethanol in fuel for cars - Yahoo! News I say call a spade a spade and cut the bullshit. Even the Gore Whore admitted it's a farce. Cull those votes. Pamper the American sweetheart farmer. Tug on the enviro-tree hugging ignorant heartstrings of America because it's the warm and fuzzy thing to do. The entire premise of the ethanol program was originally intended to: 1) Clean up the air - there is NO quantifiable measurable improvement in air quality solely related to the use of ethanol blended gasolines. 2) Reduce the volume of imported crude oil - look at imports since the ethanol mandate: UP UP UP. 3) Suppport the Ag (read: BIG AG) community by supporting corn prices. Corn prices- and every fucking imaginable product gleaned from the kernel. Yeah corn prices are up- and so are the prices of corn flakes, corn starch, and CORN HOLES. Do we have a "choice" as to what fuel we put in our vehicles? HELL NO. Years ago I filled up at a brand new gas station. No ethanol stickers on the pumps. The cashier had no clue whether or not there was ethanol in the stock tanks. So I figured- oh well- fill it up anyway. Later I called their headquarters and was informed that yes- there is ethanol in that gasoline. So I asked to talk to the manager- he said "well what do you want me to do?". He ended up sending me a check for the full price of my tank of gas. It's well enough that we discuss these issues on message boards, but until we bombard our legislators with grievances, there will be no rational decisions coming out of Washington. ETOH - ETHANOL. What a god damn fleecing. Ooooh- 10% not enough for the poor wittle fawmers? Fuck, give 'em 15%. Create that market and grow it through unfettered mandates. UNFETTERED MANDATES. What an insane joke.
