On the Ethanol Scam (AKA, the Longest Running Pilfering of the America Taxpayer in History)
It has NEVER been an energy policy and ALWAYS been a farm subsidy policy. And if you're interested in the abject absurdity of this policy, just get a load of this. According to the periodical, Strategic Studies Quarterly, just to replace the U.S. oil needs for transportation, it would take a land area of about 700 MILLION acres (37% of the continental United States) with nothing but corn growing on it....It's insanity, folks, and just the mere concept that we're destroying food and destroying it at a juncture when many people are struggling is enough to make me vomit. I'm sorry but it is.
