With all respect, pjohnf, I've gotta disagree. Whether we like it or not, Bergdahl was an American serviceman. That one fact is the reason that I believe we HAD to get him back regardless, whether he was a traitor or a patriot. Scenario 1: if any American serviceman gets captured by enemy combatants, we owe it to them to do whatever we can to get them back, wouldn't you agree? Scenario…

There is a big difference between inadequate and illegal. To date, no agency has obviously indicated that the jail cannot be used but that doesn't make the jail adequate for todays world. A Model T Ford could still be used for a patrol car as well. It isn't illegal to drive one but it is entirely inadequate.

Susan Rice is the "closer in the bullpen" for the Obama admin - when they needed someone to come in tell a whopper that even Hillary wouldn't touch she was the one they called on.

Malicious mischief? I'm waiting to someone to be arrested for shenanigans. Shouldn't people have to call in and describe a missing bicycle, and then QPD would see if they have one on their list that matches? It seems like posting descriptions of found items makes it easy for a ne'er-do-well to claim something that isn't theirs.

Illinois Corn Growers respond to criticism of Ethanol Tax Credits

11 months, 1 week ago From Illinois Corn Growers

Illinois Corn Growers Association President Gary Hudson, a family farmer from Hindsboro, IL, released the following statement in response to media reports citing Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association vice-president Bill Fleischli’s claims related to the ethanol tax incentive.

“Bill Fleischli and the Illinois Petroleum Marketers are looking for ways to scare motorists about ethanol and its impact on gas prices. Talk of increasing the motor fuels tax provided a perfect opportunity, and Mr. Fleischli has since claimed that the elimination of the ethanol tax incentive would increase gas prices by 6 cents. That’s an exaggeration unless the petroleum marketers he represents plan to price-gouge their customers in retaliation for losing an incentive that they see as their own.

The E-10 tax incentive was incredibly successful in bringing a lower cost fuel choice to market. It gave marketers an opportunity to lower their prices in direct relationship to the value of the tax incentive.

Here’s an ethanol tax incentive fact check. Ethanol is cheaper than gasoline at the wholesale level every day, making gasoline containing any amount of ethanol less expensive than gasoline that does not. The ethanol tax incentive is worth roughly three point three cents per gallon at $3.50 gas. If marketers are passing along that incentive to their customers, it should make $3.50 gas $3.47 gas. At most, repealing the ethanol incentive should only move $3.47 gas up to $3.50 gas, and it shouldn’t increase gas prices at all at stations where the tax incentive wasn’t benefiting the customer.”
