It's all about peace and justice. Anti-war, yes, but more than that. It is about thinking for yourself, deinstutionalzing, taking the military out of the hands of corrupt leader. Together we can make it happen.

Biofuel Backfire - oh ya' think?

TomPaine.com - Biofuel Backfire: "

With Congress still wrestling behind closed doors over energy legislation, people are starting to take a closer look at the issue. And what they're seeing isn't pretty.

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, has stalled formal Senate and House negotiations on energy in part out of concern than more ethanol use could further drive up animal feed prices. She's far from the only one concerned. The Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute predicts that more use of biofuels could drive food prices 20-40 percent higher between now and 2020.

Direct payments to farmers for conservation and set asides were a better idea then and still are. Too bad Daschle is not in the Senate to show the way. Remember KBH is from an oil state that also feeds large numbers of cattle. I am very wary of her true intentions.
