Nostalgia For The Future
Did I hear him wrong, or did Bush really say it's time to move to ethanol?
We've got to be aggressive about finding alternative sources of fuel. And one such source is ethanol. Ethanol comes from corn -- and we're pretty good about growing corn here in America, we've got a lot of good corn growers. Therefore, it makes sense to promote ethanol as an alternative to foreign sources of oil.
Straight from the monkey's mouth to your ears, there it is. Isn't it nice that Bush suddenly wants to talk green, and promote alternative energy? Maybe that global warming panel Senator Boxer is setting up has something to do with it. I hate to break it to him, though- corn is food. Even with all these good corn growers, how can we have enough for both? Boy, it's like going into Iraq with no exit strategy all over again. Can't these guys ever get past part A to parts B and C? Do they think they're writing a script to a TV sitcom? It sounds like Bush had Global Warming For Dummies read to him by Condi that morning, and now we're all Children of the Corn.
I just read about a gallant cabbie who gave an elderly woman a jump so she could get to her medication. For his troubles, he received a ticket for double-parking. Worse still, the city council refused to drop the citation, even after hearing from the woman. Like the man said, a mind is like a parachute- it only works when open. Good job, you losers.
