Texas Governor Is Fed Up With Corn Ethanol

By RICK PERRY
August 12, 2008; Page A21

At what price will corn be so expensive that the federal government will decide that it is time to stop driving up the price of food?

Three years ago, Congress imposed a Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) mandate that has forced the gasoline industry to mix massive amounts of corn-based ethanol into the nation's fuel supply. In 2007, Congress nearly
doubled that mandate to require nine billion gallons of ethanol be blended into gas in 2008 and even more in 2009.

But, as a safety valve, Congress gave the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the power to waive the new mandates if they turn out to have unforeseen, negative consequences.

As we can see now, the diversion of our corn supply from grocery stores to gasoline pumps has caused the price of corn to spiral out of control. Corn prices were once driven by market forces. Today they are artificially driven up
by a government mandate. In 2004, before the mandates were imposed, the cost of corn hovered around $2 per bushel. Now it is close to $8 per bushel.

This is driving up the cost of staple food items at the grocery store. And it is also driving up the price of corn-based feed, devastating the livestock industry to the point that Texas cattle feeders have been operating in the red since 2007...

Perry is a such a hack. The man who controls every word that comes out of his shit-eating mouth is Bo Pilgrim, the zillionaire owner of Pilgrim's Pride, the huge chicken conglomerate that has laid waste to Eastern Texas, covering the land with arsenic-laced chicken shit and poisoning the ground water with it, filling the rivers and streams people in Texas drink out of with rotting chicken guts, as he fills the air with chicken feed dust containing dried dead road kill, and the stench of his massive rendering plant in the oddly named Mt. Pleasant, Texas, the most un-Pleasant place on earth. Poor Bo, the top contributor to the corporate globalization wing of the GOP, and the top employer of illegal aliens in the United States, is getting hammered by corn prices, especially now that he us unable to feed his chickens ground-up diseased dead cattle like he used to, due to the discovery that that is how Mad Cow Disease is spread. If Bo was making money off of corn prices, Perry, the sock-puppet bitch, would be up there telling everyone how great high corn prices are, but no, Perry is a Chicken Bitch. Come on Jayhawk, why don't you post what the Kansas Korn Bitches have to say, you know, the ones who are bending over and taking it up the ass for ADM?

Corn Bitch, who tried to make Corn president, is also a big supporter of illegal aliens, just like Chicken Bitch and Pilgrim. Of course, Bo's biggest bitch is now president of the US, and thanks to Bo and his money, President Chicken Bitch flooded the country with illegal aliens, just like Bo wanted. You want to know what is wrong with this country? Why, it must be dem bad ole Lib-a-rells!

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

I feel this thread is a little lite on substance.
