We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Using it can void your car warranty, and destroy your gas-powered tools. This ethanol fad is a government/farm crony scam, and is hurting all of us except the Big Farmers who quit growing food to get in on the deal. Heck, those farmers are rational businessmen:
Corn tho ethanol is big business. No! Not the obvious business of turning corn into ethanol. But the more common and unheralded business of turning lobbying into billions in subsidies from tax payers. The worst part about this scam is that ethanol doesn't reduce pollution it increases it. It doesn't provide us more fuel independence but actually more dependence on foreign fuel. Everything about it is contrary to the claims. It takes about 130% energy into the process to get the 100% energy out the ethanol tap. And in that process the federal government gives away billions of your tax dollars every year to the ethanol farmers and producers. But wait, there's more; corn to ethanol drives up the price of food to. The corn is a staple in raising all food animals and of course a ingredient in half of our non-meat food supply. So it's an all around disaster that must be expanded every year. If the people don't demand it then too bad because it is such a good idea that government will mandate it. Is this a great country or what?
I destroyed a lawn mower (and likely a chain saw) with E-10. Now this. It's likely (if I were a conspiracy buff) this is a way to eliminate older vehicles in exchange for ones easier to track and "encourage" responsible use.
