Americans are going to have one hell of a mess to clean up once the Kenyan boy is out of the White House. Geez. What were those idiot DemocRAT “voters” thinking?! The promise of free stuff wasn’t worth the destruction of America.

Generally, here in my part of Kentucky, the farmers HATE the ethanol mandates. It really messes up farm machinery that does use Gasoline. And much of that type of machinery is **OLD**, repaired and taken care of with loving hands.

It’s cheaper in the long run to do that than to by new stuff as one of the old farmers here told me. He showed me an old seed drill that had been rebuilt twice and would be good for another five or so years of hard work. Buying new is nice, but he and the others like him remember their grandparents losing so much to the banks back in the depression and they refuse to mortgage anything or buy on credit.

And those who do have to buy formulated feed for some of their herds hate the price increases that the Ethanol mandates have pushed onto the feed market.

—thankfully ,this article or a variation is all over the mid-western news media this morning—

—those of us who have been aware of the foolishness of ethanol can fell a bit justified—

—the price per bushel of corn, BTW , for those who don’t pay attention to commodities has gone from $7.00 to below $4.50 over the last few months-—

Even worse for Ethanol’s “green” credentials is that the enviros conveniently forget the nearly one ton of carbon dioxide produced by the yeasts for each ton of ethanol they make.

"With the Iowa political caucuses on the horizon in 2007, presidential candidate Barack Obama made homegrown corn a centerpiece of his plan to slow global warming. And when President George W. Bush signed a law that year requiring oil companies to add billions of gallons of ethanol to their gasoline each year, Bush predicted it would make the country "stronger, cleaner and more secure."

That's cute. I bet quite a few people even fell for it.
