cumanj, The subsidies for ethanol ended a long time ago.
Let's talk about the govenment subsidies for big oil.
BTW, No American blood has been shed defending our ethanol supply.
The coffee is on........have a cup and enjoy your day.

" The office commands respect and we should give it. "
Don't know about you, but many of your comrades did anything but, for the last 8 years.
The people in ag are going to be freak out when trump actually does what he says he is going to do.
RFS will be the least of your problems.
BA will be the last boy singing.
No. Matter. What.

You are all barking up the wrong tree and or chasing plastic rabbits.
We are all living under the shadow of a dude with no qualifications with a Nobel prize for accomplishing nothing up to that time.
Since being granted that he has doubled the national debt , and fixed the system to suck out the life blood of the economy into healthcare. Why don't you guys look at the current administration with just half as a critical eye as this something that hasn't even had a chance yet?
You want to worry about something? Worry about "credit" we are very close to a credit system collapse. If your credit card didn't work tomorrow how long before you would go hungry? Assuming your bank was still open, but was not loaning money, would you make it till planting?
Fractional reserve banking works...til it doesn't. There is a very unstable mountain of debt in this world, will take a very small tremor to start an avalanche...
Just remember the current idiot bowed down to a third world camel driver, and the first runner up loser in this election promised four more years if she was elected. This is what you really want? Be very careful what you wish for...

Wow this horse still has some life...
RayJ,, I would think the young Branstad might have his hands full with the tough old guy from Queens, NY.
cumanj,, keep posting but check out a history book and stay with us. Us older producers with the fitted nose rings will guide you out of that ideological theory phase into the reality of american business life.
Now for criteria for political appointments ............ my point with the poke at a religious gender popular political choice statement.... should be interpreted as saying "if the media is befuddled by these appointments, it is a good sign".
It is good to see appointments that seem to go beyond social engineering norms.
Branstad in China makes great sense in a trade promotion way. ----
Icahn... is opposed to the tax and regulate reality that drives international corps out of the country.....
It is easy to see the logic to the appointments.... and some purpose other than political payoff.
But whatever the result... there is a desire here to move away from the "limp hand" bargaining position, and "apology" phase of politics... I hope they have some success...
They have a very up hill task ahead of them. They will be opposed by the vast majority of their employees and most school teachers, no matter how beneficial their results...

The reason those of us that didn't care for the results of the 2008 and 2012 election
weren't protesting and rioting is because we're too busy working and paying taxes.
Besides, being paid $15 or $18 per hour to be a protestor would be a pay cut.
I wonder if Soros is providing health insurance coverage to his professional protestors??
