directly to political influence. Can you guess who has the greater amount of
influence with Washington? (Rhetorical question, no need to answer)
And since any idiot can appear before a Congressional committee, when were
you last there?
4) Yes, I do argue a lot with people who are spreading lies about ethanol. Some
are true shills, for the oil industry; and some are just people that have no idea
of what they are writing about. I believe that fuel independence is of primary
concern to America and that ethanol can be a major player in ending dependence on foreign oil and restoring the health of our economy. I believe that we
have lost too many military men and women fighting to support foreign terrorist
regimes. Excuse me for caring. Excuse me for being vigorous in how much I
care. It's a shame that you don't have the same concern for America, but maybe
you're not American - maybe Pywaket is not an American name.
By the way, I hope you noticed that NO ONE is able to provide information that
refutes the facts I present.
4a) I don't get your reference to airplane engines not using ethanol. Certainly
you must know that planes can and have used ethanol. The reason the FAA
has restricted its use is that the airplane engine industry is so small that they
were not affected by the regulations regarding ethanol-resistant parts. The government just didn't feel that planes were significant enough to worry about. It's
simply a matter of swapping out parts. The Auto Channel has a great video of
stunt pilot Greg Poe flying his ethanol-powered plane at the California Capital
Air Show. You can watch it by CLICKING HERE. And if you search Google
you'll find other examples.
Also, I don't think you'll find any comments from me suggesting that pilots
should use ethanol in their planes. So, I don't know why you felt it necessary to
exaggerate and pretend that anything I've written pertains to your safety while
5) This point is sort of like your Point 3. Yes, media outlets are hungry for cheap
filler material. That's one of the reasons why there is so much junk published in
favor of gasoline and the oil industry, even though both have proven to be poison to humans and other animal life.
