A clarification: The 2005 Energy Bill does provide for limited drilling in Alaska. Most estimates are that it will be another five years before regulatory and other hurdles allow us to see a barrel of this oil in our market.
Back to the original question. Gas prices are most influenced by the revenue that is taken in the form of every tax possible. That is why Soy oil isnt being used. They havent set up the tax system for a nonpolluting bio system yet. I know ,I have been turned down for Grants by the same people who are promoting it . Their excuse, good idea but sorry no money. Thats from our State energy commision. The Constitution party would allow the refinement of current oils and would be for alternative systems. By the way I have blueprints for a heating stove that works with any waste oil as well as how to convert any diesel engine to Straight vegetable oil, something we have plenty of here in the Delta. I am not a profiteer, I just want to develop opportunities for our dying townships to do something to help their people and Our Country at the same time. I dont charge anything to give information, thats the teacher in me.
Harvey,I have heard of programs at major research universities and at national laboratories with teams of Ph.D. scientists that seek economical and efficient production of bio-diesel. It is just not a magic bullet. It may be a very small part of a multitude of solutions, but ultimately to take food products and use them for energy is inefficient and unwise. That means that the only reasonable and economically efficient source of bio-diesel precursors is from recycling or waste products.This reminds me of the NEW internal combustion engine that some redneck developed under his shade-tree that will move a 4000 lb. car and gets 200 mile per gallon. Of course, we all know that the evil oil companies have kept it from the market.I wish it were true, but the FACT is that there is simply not enough energy produced from the combustion of one gallon of gasoline to do that amount of work. The is no conspiracy by the oil companies to force us to drive gas-guzzlers.Soy oil may eventually be a strategic fuel source and that is all well and good, but it absolutely is not economical or efficient use of our natural resources when there are so much better options availiable. It is just not economically viable as a large scale implementation.
I wished I had me one of them PHD Thangs. I am one them old rednecks that need people to tell me how ignorant I am. Thank you Sir anonymous. I dont think you are up to date with your facts and besides I hate hearing naysayers say what cant be done. I am a stubborn Navy Chief who may just have an engineering background . Guess I should deny my creed. "Results...NOT Excuses."
Giddy-Up Harvey Ol' Boy!I also believe that bio-diesel may have some very small value way off in the future, but think about what a gallon of veggie oil cost. It is still more expensive than petroleum even with prices as high as they are. I want to remind you that I did not say that bio-diesel doesn't work. It does, sorta. I have personally seen an owner of a greasy bag resturant drive a Volkswagon Rabbit that has been converted to run on veggie oil. Sucker makes the whole town smell like french fries. Giggle.Harvey, you need to stick to what a CPO knows...which is how to lead, discipline, and motivate men to be MORE than who and what they are. That is a noble skill you have earned my respect for. Don't try to be something you are not.Now, let's move to the fact that you are NOT an engineer. A friendly piece of advice, if you are going to run for public office, you need to tone down that resume. While not a big deal, what you currently have on your resume is technically AGAINST THE LAW. You should read Arkansas Code 17-30-101http://www.state.ar.us/pels/laws.htmlAgain, you are alot of honorable things. Things that legitimately qualify you to hold elected office, demand respect, and held in high esteem. Top among them is that you are a proven LEADER. You are obviously a hardworker and a good Christian man. Be that, it's plenty good enough. Nay, it is superior to almost any politician out there. Don't be something you are not.Physical laws that govern the amount of chemical energy (energy of combustion) in gasoline make it impossible for a large car to get 200 miles per gallon. It is kind of like trying carry 5 gallons of liquid water in a 3 gallon bucket.I recall working on an old Lithum Bromide chiller unit that had rocked up. A one-day-on-the-boat JO yelled (screamed?) at me almost your exact same words when I told him it would take alot more than 10 minutes to "thaw" it. He said, "I want results, not excuses... I hate hearing naysayers say what can't be done." He didn't see the XO laying under the back of the unit helping me. Quitely the XO said, "Get off my boat"...short pause..."Why are you standing there, I want results...not excuses."Yes, I was a "knuckle dragger" in the Navy, so I think I can call you one.Anchors Aweigh You Salty Old Goat.
I will shy away now. I have been found out. Now the Law will be coming to get me. I dont like to argue about such things because I usually just leave it at that. I did remove the offensive lies from my webpage for the good of the many. However on a more sincere note I would rather be know as A Marine Engineer in the Military for the pride and education it entailed. Not for what a State says makes an Engineer. There has always been people who challenge other peoples qualifications without actually knowing the facts. Therefore to keep from lowering myself any more I will keep in mind there are always folks out there who love to challenge. Principles not Politics.
From: Michael Moore [mailto:email@example.com]Sent: Sunday, September 11, 2005 2:37 AMSubject: A Letter to All Who Voted for George W. Bush from Michael MooreTo All My Fellow Americans Who Voted for George W. Bush:On this, the fourth anniversary of 9/11, I'm just curious, how does it feel?How does it feel to know that the man you elected to lead us after we were attacked went ahead and put a guy in charge of FEMA whose main qualification was that he ran horse shows?That's right. Horse shows.I really want to know -- and I ask you this in all sincerity and with all due respect -- how do you feel about the utter contempt Mr. Bush has shown for your safety? C'mon, give me just a moment of honesty. Don't start ranting on about how this disaster in New Orleans was the fault of one of the poorest cities in America. Put aside your hatred of Democrats and liberals and anyone with the last name of Clinton. Just look me in the eye and tell me our President did the right thing after 9/11 by naming a horse show runner as the top man to protect us in case of an emergency or catastrophe.I want you to put aside your self-affixed label of Republican/conservative/born-again/capitalist/ditto-head/right-winger and just talk to me as an American, on the common ground we both call America.Are we safer now than before 9/11? When you learn that behind the horse show runner, the #2 and #3 men in charge of emergency preparedness have zero experience in emergency preparedness, do you think we are safer?When you look at Michael Chertoff, the head of Homeland Security, a man with little experience in national security, do you feel secure?When men who never served in the military and have never seen young men die in battle send our young people off to war, do you think they know how to conduct a war? Do they know what it means to have your legs blown off for a threat that was never there?Do you really believe that turning over important government services to private corporations has resulted in better services for the people?Why do you hate our federal government so much? You have voted for politicians for the past 25 years whose main goal has been to de-fund the federal government. Do you think that cutting federal programs like FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers has been good or bad for America? GOOD OR BAD?With the nation's debt at an all-time high, do you think tax cuts for the rich are still a good idea? Will you give yours back so hundreds of thousands of homeless in New Orleans can have a home?Do you believe in Jesus? Really? Didn't he say that we would be judged by how we treat the least among us? Hurricane Katrina came in and blew off the facade that we were a nation with liberty and justice for all. The wind howled and the water rose and what was revealed was that the poor in America shall be left to suffer and die while the President of the United States fiddles and tells them to eat cake.That's not a joke. The day the hurricane hit and the levees broke, Mr. Bush, John McCain and their rich pals were stuffing themselves with cake. A full day after the levees broke (the same levees whose repair funding he had cut), Mr. Bush was playing a guitar some country singer gave him. All this while New Orleans sank under water.It would take ANOTHER day before the President would do a flyover in his jumbo jet, peeking out the widow at the misery 2500 feet below him as he flew back to his second home in DC. It would then be TWO MORE DAYS before a trickle of federal aid and troops would arrive. This was no seven minutes in a sitting trance while children read "My Pet Goat" to him. This was FOUR DAYS of doing nothing other than saying "Brownie (FEMA director Michael Brown), you're doing a heck of a job!"My Republican friends, does it bother you that we are the laughing stock of the world?And on this sacred day of remembrance, do you think we honor or shame those who died on 9/11/01? If we learned nothing and find ourselves today every bit as vulnerable and unprepared as we were on that bright sunny morning, then did the 3,000 die in vain?Our vulnerability is not just about dealing with terrorists or natural disasters. We are vulnerable and unsafe because we allow one in eight Americans to live in horrible poverty. We accept an education system where one in six children never graduate and most of those who do can't string a coherent sentence together. The middle class can't pay the mortgage or the hospital bills and 45 million have no health coverage whatsoever.Are we safe? Do you really feel safe? You can only move so far out and build so many gated communities before the fruit of what you've sown will be crashing through your walls and demanding retribution. Do you really want to wait until that happens? Or is it your hope that if they are left alone long enough to soil themselves and shoot themselves and drown in the filth that fills the street that maybe the problem will somehow go away?I know you know better. You gave the country and the world a man who wasn't up for the job and all he does is hire people who aren't up for the job. You did this to us, to the world, to the people of New Orleans. Please fix it. Bush is yours. And you know, for our peace and safety and security, this has to be fixed. What do you propose?I have an idea, and it isn't a horse show.Yours,Michael Moorewww.firstname.lastname@example.org
So Mr. Moore, do you think that John Kerry would have served you better?
Oh, my bad ... I thought that email was from MARK MOORE, not MICHEAL MOORE. I think it is obvious how I made such a mistake considering the Bush and Republican bashing that the Constitution Party does these days. Nonetheless, Mark Moore, I apologize for my knee jerk reaction that credited that silly email to you.
Very cool design! Useful information. Go on! Sell bad debts Anime babe video Oster hair dryers for animals Wheelchair foot protection
