    FEEDING GAS TANKS RATHER THAN ANIMALS
    =============================

    The drought that has been parching the American midwest has brought growers to their knees. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has officially stated that half of the nation's corn crop is in poor or very poor condition. The cable news reports, with their panning scenes of acre upon acre of dead corn, are even worse. It looks like the setting of a post-apocalypse movie, not the breadbasket of a nation created by farmers. The few corn crops that are actually surviving are so rare that on Monday, prices sky rocketed to an all-time high of $8.20 a bushel, and counting.Corn plants struggle to survive in Indiana during the worst US drought in more than 50 years.

    There's a US government mandate that our unleaded fuel going into vehicles has to be approximately 13% ethanol. Regardless of supply, that currently remains the law.

    Damn the people
    and the Congress
    and the establishment
    and its laws
    that favor the use of corn
    for personal transportation
    rather than
    for the feeding of humans
    and other animals


    Damn them!

    I repeat: Damn them!
