ALL ABOUT ETHANOL GASOLINE ISSUES AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
* * * BREAKING NEWS * * *
WISHING A VERY HAPPY, BLESSED AND FESTIVE THANKSGIVING TO ALL OUR READERS AND YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS!
BREAKING: Now another commit, 4 STAR Jacoby Stevens for the class of 2017 has decommited from the Tigers. Both he adn QB Feleipe Franks indicate the uncertainity of Coach Les Miles position led them to decommit.
My biggest fear with the Tigers losing 3 consecutive games, and news swirling about the possibility of Coach Les Miles being fired, was that recruiting would be hurt! Today, the ONLY quarterback commit for the 2016 class, Feleipe Franks, one of the Nations top ‘Pro Style’ quarterback from Florida ‘DECOMMMITED‘ from LSU. It is believed he will now commit to Florida. And, I would believe this may not be the only one to decommit. With this loss, the Tigers 2016 draft class fell to #2 behind Ohio State.
A BRIEF update on the Louisiana USDA grant to sell higher grades of ethanol gasoline in Louisiana. The retailer who will be using the grant is Racetrac. They plan to install 110 pumps at 11 stations with associated ethanol tankage in Louisiana. I spoke with a representative from Racetrac at their corporate Petroleum office in Atlanta today; however, the person I spoke with did not have a lot of details, except that they will install the blend pumps at several new stations under construction and some older stations they will retrofit. She didn’t have information on timing when they will be ready to start selling the E15 and E85 or where the stations will be located. ALSO, I e-mailed the Mississippi fuels director several days ago to inquire if she had approved any ethanol blends than E10 in Mississippi (unlike Louisiana, any blends for ethanol gasoline in Mississippi must apply and be approved by their fuels division). She told me that they have at least ONE E85 Racetrac station in Batesville, MS (105 Stone Drive). I spoke with the station Friday evening and was told they have 20 pumps which can sell E85. He told me the current price is $1.55/gallon. Since E85 will result in a 30-40% mileage loss, the price of this E85 should really be about $0.75/gallon or less! AND, for Mississippi consumers, REMEMBER that ONLY ‘FLEX FUEL’ vehicles can safely operate on E85. If used in ANY NON-FLEX vehicle or motorcycle or off road engine, it will DESTROY the engine and manufacturers will VOID the warranty.
ALSO: Today (11/23) I added the EPA’s E20 – E85 pump label which must be installed on ALL pumps which dispense ethanol blends from E20 to E85 on the website’s ‘Ethanol Facts’ page. If you haven’t read our website’s “Ethanol Facts” page recently, I encourage you to read it as I’ve added some NEW information that I think you will find both informative and interesting. If there is any additional information about ethanol fuels which you feel I have NOT included in this facts page, please e-mail me with your suggestion (see my e-mail address above).
ALSO: Gun owners and 2nd Amendment advocates, please VIEW two new videos I posted today (10/22) just above the ‘Dangers of Ethanol’ video group. One is titled “The Truth about Gun Crime in America – Number One With a Bullet” which is an EXCELLENT video on while the U.S. has the MOST guns per capita in the World, the gun crime rate is among the lowest in the World. This will drive the ultra liberal gun control crowd CRAZY! The 2nd video is titled “Bill Whittle’s Solution to Gun Control” and is also VERY informative and very common sense.
IMPORTANT: Please see the details of an article I posted today (9/3/2015) concerning a VERY IMPORTANT issue regarding Obama’s attempt to FORCE the UN to TAKE AWAY our GUNS! It is EXTREMELY URGENT that all gun owners and 2nd Amendment advocates respond to this important issue before it is TOO LATE. See the details in the ‘Gun Control in America’ section below.
ALSO: Notice on the right hand side of this page that I posted a notice that I am putting the website up for sale. Any interested parties, please contact me at the e-mail address listed in the notice.
LSU SPORTS INFORMATION:
Although LSU website indicates the Tigers have 19 commitments for 2016, Coach Miles indicates that the total is actually 21, as there are 3 ‘silent commits’ who do not yet want their names announced yet? Here’s the link to 247Sports.com’s ranking of 2016 recruiting by colleges:

* * * TODAY’S FEATURE ARTICLE * * *
Today I posted an ethanol article from The Modesto Bee titled “Karen Kerrigan: The Broken Promises, Politics of Corn Ethanol“. The author discussed how the ethanol industry has damaged California and costed the State $13 Billion in higher fuel costs since 2005. In addition, according to the article, “In effect, the Renewable Fuel Standard is imposing a $42 billion “ethanol tax” on California consumers, with the vast majority of the proceeds going to out-of-state ethanol producers“. More and more States are finally beginning to understand how the ethanol RFS is costing States big time, and the only businesses who benefit are the corn farmers and ethanol plants in the midwest. Everyone else loses………

PLEASE HELP REPEAL THE ETHANOL RENEWAL FUEL STANDARD BY E-MAILING OUR U.S. CONGRESSMEN!
PLEASE CALL, WRITE OR E-MAIL YOUR STATE’S U.S. SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES AND URGE THEM TO REPEAL THE RFS NOW – READ THE INFORMATION BELOW……the bill is titled “Renewal Fuel Standard Reform Act of 2015″.

* * * GUN CONTROL IN AMERICA * * *
Today (9/3/2015) I posted a new gun control article on the “Gun Control in America” website page titled “Urgent: Obama’s Top Secret ‘Fast Track’ Bill Authorizes Total Gun Control….Read More Here“. Obama and his surrogate Secretary of State John Kerry attended a UN meeting in Mexico a few weeks ago. The intent of the meeting was to finalize details of the U.N. Small Arms Treaty which Kerry signed for the President two years ago. I recently posted in this location the details of the Treaty whose TOTAL intent is to STRIP AWAY private ownership of guns in America! Obama CANNOT BE TRUSTED and he is desperately trying to find a way to bypass the U.S. Congress on gun control, knowing they will NEVER approve of this Treaty. Please read the article on the website’s ‘Gun Control in America‘ page (see the link on the article tool bar on top of this page). After you read the article, I URGE you to join either the NRA of NAGR advocates for gun owners TODAY. They need our involvement and financial support to fight this issue for us.
I’ll ONLY post here when I add a new article to the “Gun Control in America” page.
American gun owners and defenders of the 2nd Amendment NEED HELP in fighting off the Government and State ‘gun control’ advocates! If you are not currently a member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) or the NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights), you are urged to join TODAY. Dues for the NRA are only $25/year and $35/year for the NAGR.
Here’s how (the NRA is the most powerful and influential):

Here is an article by NOLA.com/The Times Picayune sports writer Jim Kleinpeter who says the LSU football players are standing behind Coach Les Miles…….an interesting perspective from the players.
LSU PLAYERS STANDING BEHIND COACH LES MILES
By Jim Kleinpeter – NOLA.com/The Times Picayune – Nov 24, 2015
LSU coach Les Miles didn’t clear up his future status with his players when he met with them Monday afternoon.
Players said Monday night it was business as usual. The message was concentrate on Texas A&M and finish the season strong with eight victories. But every player came out in support of their embattled coach, who is likely to be ousted after the Tigers play the Aggies.
Most of the responses were the same but wide receiver Malachi Dupre said something different and interesting when asked if he felt the players needed to defend their coaches.
“I don’t feel like we have to stand up and defend the coach,” Dupre said. “The best, and easiest, way to defend the coach is with our play, eliminate the mistakes, in this last game and the week before that.
“Our performance on the field is what will determine people’s opinions on him and as players we have to do a better job,” he said.”
