How can they expect,

us to take them seriously? The politicians, on both sides of the aisle, who scream about deficits, taxes and gov't waste, while they continue to subsidize ethanol. This program, in a nutshell, shows what is wrong with politics in America. To keep a few farm belt congressman in the fold, we are all forced to send our tax dollars to pay midwest farmers to grow corn for ethanol, WHICH TAKES MORE ENERGY TO GROW, THAN IT PRODUCES. This is real simple stuff. If allowed to live or die, in the real world, it would DIE, immediately, BUT, the gov't pays farmers to waste time, energy and water, to get fed $'s, rather than growing the food that we and the world need. Insane, but SO typical of our gov't. Started by the Bushies, cuz it drove UP the price of oil and gave Repub states a huge cash infusion, it has been continued by the Dems, who should know better, but don't have the will to stand up to the lobbyists. Insane, but typical of our 'bought and paid for' gov't.
