He won't, apparently, because the threat of punishment isn't deterrent enough. Time to bring back public floggings, stocks, tar and feathers, caning, etc.... We're being too easy on our criminals.

Hooray for Hollywood and all those who continue to support the Obama admin's policies. Where is the hashtag, the outrage, the PSA's from Obama supporters? Reid, Pelosi, Wassermann-Shultz, Boxer, Sharptan, BlackLives Matter? No comments? Democrats in general say nothing, see nothing, hear nothing? Like a bunch of monkeys? Seems as if the Democrat policy of ignoring the current immigration…

Assuming you're referring to your desire to burn-your-own...there's no comparison to this incinerator and a few thousand homes burning their own. Not too smart putting the incinerator in the middle of town though. And they are probably completely unaware of the EPA restriction.,...at least I hope they are not deliberately violating it as that could subject the city to fines I would think.

Illinois Corn Growers respond to criticism of Ethanol Tax Credits

1 year, 3 months 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.”
