DUH! Stupid Libs!

Didn't research that it would do this to our food prices before they attracted a bunch of farmers to grow corn for Ethanol. Grrrrrrrr....

A little research would have proved that the farmers should have grown switch grass for Ethanol, thereby not depleting the aquifers, enriching the soil, and not killing our food prices.

Switch grass? What's that? and what are some other options. I remember being in Germany after WWII and trading cigarettes for potato schnapps. What else can we grow in hard-to-grow places that we could use for fuel? HIC?

Burning food is the stoooopidest liberal idea yet.

I noticed when I fueled up (first time in two and a half weeks) that the regular unleaded was touting up to 90% ethanol with a little green sticker. That crap pisses me off. I’ll look else ware or pay for mid-grade just to stay away. I refuse to contribute to the inflation caused by turning perfectly good food into energy via a multi-stage process that guarantees that fuel is being wasted and strains the wallets of the average person by increasing food prices. The same lie is being told regarding electric cars. First, the energy is likely delivered from a coal burning or natural gas power plant. Second, there is a great deal of energy lost in transmission in the form of heat, sound (note: that buzzing and crackling under the high-tension wires is energy being wasted in the form of both heat and sound) and mechanical conversion which involves both heat and sound. Finally, you dump the energy into an inefficient storage device which once again wastes energy itself charging and then delivering the energy by conversion through the wiring and stators to the drive train to create motion. In the end you get to pay to replace and dispose of a huge toxic battery at about half of the value of the transportation device (car) just to appease the itch in Al Gorical’s pants. All hail Gia and the wonders of stupidity. Real efficiency and love for mother earth is a potato(e)(oe)(oeoeooooooe) cannon custom formed to ones body and 1/4 cup of gasoline. Pour deadly fuel, insert self, tilt at a 45 degree angle for maximum efficient distance. Set to 25 degrees if you only intend to go to wal-mart. Enough.
