Happy 2013! Hope that everyone has recovered from New Year’s eve and the bowl games. I thought it would be proper to waste no time in launching the new year with the latest from from the EPA scumbags who are introducing E15 gasoline to the nation’s pumps (that’s gasoline made from 15% corn ethanol that separates from the petroleum gasoline when it settles in your tank). AAA strongly recommends your not using it in cars older than the 2012 model year.
When presented with the obvious f**k up, the EPA sniffed in response that (fasten your seat belt) ‘it is impossible to do years of testing in a few months.’
The government’s ‘nudge policy’ (a la Cass Sunstein) has now graduated into out and out vandalism in their efforts to get older cars off the roads and push their disastrous bio-fuels program which has EVERYTHING wrong with it that one can imagine. The bottom line is that E15 will rot out your fuel system while you are getting fewer miles per gallon driving with the crap. (See the complete report on Fox News here.)
Now that the fiscal cliff has been kicked down the road a couple of months, it’s good to re-establish our perspective on the constant stream of damage and distress that issues daily from the banks of the Potomac.
