Spoken like a True Believer----putting lipstick on the pig. As long as we're in "At Least" mode to excuse our illustrious Dictator-in-Chief, I would say no one can doubt Mr Niekamp's honesty or sincerity; something that cannot be said of Obama. "Did his best".........that's a good one.

What have we become? 55 years ago, we could go rabbit hunting before school and store our shotgun in our locker in school and then go hunting after school. All this with full knowledge of the school principal. Are we sliding backwards? One or two mental cases shoot up a school and all of a sudden little Tommy can't play with is toy gun. Please stop the world, I want to get off.

For the love of God, man, don't give them any ideas! There are already kids getting kicked out of schools for biting toast into the shape of guns! Like I said earlier, I know the thought-process behind what they're doing here, but the thought has not been fully formed. I don't know what the answer is, but this ordinance sure as hell isn't it.

Illinois Corn Growers respond to criticism of Ethanol Tax Credits

3 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.”
