    Fuck this shit. All the corn subsidies should be fucking gone, not just the ethanol.

    Corn ethanol is not even a good fuel. You want to subsidize ethanol? Subsidize cellulosic ethanol. It holds far more promise as a usable and effective fuel and is far better for the environment.

    Or simply remove the tariffs on sugar ethanol that Brazil produces and let the market dictate.

    This is where the Republicans lose me. They also voted down a decrease in farm subsidies. Farmers making up to $750,000 a year are eligible for fucking subsidies????

    What's the alternative? Democrats support subsidies too.

    Let's not forget that corn subsidies are also why Americans are fat and food prices are going up.

    Getting rid of lead in fuel was a smart move. The costs associated with the health issues caused by lead outweigh the mpg benefits. The benefits of ethanol, on the other hand, well, are there any?

    - Raises food prices
    - Decreases engine performance
    - Convinces farmers to grow only corn for the subsidies

    Nope. these are pretty much the only over-all effects.

    What a communist. You're ignoring the fact that these farmers have more money to invest in job creation...;)

    Until proven otherwise I assume you tried to post a picture of your recent docking experience with a 12" unclipped black cock.

    Gee, if only the Bush Administration had that idea in 2003.
    Oh, they did? Really? So what happened, wikipedia, how come the tariffs stayed in place?
    Oh.
