Looking For Bogeymen

Not just in agriculture, we see people who are facing a challenge in pursuit of their goals attempt to assign blame to other actors rather than the main cause. The only reason feeders could begin to pursue this sideswipe is because ethanol is the target of various interest groups so people are sensitized to ethanol's presence in the market. I'm glad to see EPA had the common sense to act as they did.

There is too a bogeyman. Its rich, welfare sucking grain farmers and farm states that have been "bought and paid for" by the corn ethanol scam. Its the greedy NCGA, Growth Energy, FB and many other farm groups that would sacrifice their own children on an alter if they could get one more penny per bushel. Corn ethanol makes no sense and these groups know it, but they love the money. They don't care about America or the average person, only themselves and their rich landed gentry "lifestyle". They perpetuate the corn ethanol fraud but more and more people are on to the scam. Corn ethanol is one of many frauds that are bankrupting America. I have no respect for grain farmers who support corn ethanol because, frankly its totally immoral to burn up our food supply for no economic, environmental or social benefit. Moreover, these corn ethanol defenders sound ridiculous and should just be quiet and quit telling lies.
