TODAY’S ARTICLE : Today I posted an article about how food shortgages across the World are causing riots in several major cities. The article explains why this is happening, INCLUDING the U.S. Ethanol program which is causing 40% of it’s corn crop being converted to fuel. This also causes the cost of all grains to skyrocket in price.
SPORTS NEWS: PLEASE NOTE that this weekend LSU baseball series with Ole Miss at Oxford this weekend is on Thursday, Friday and Saturday so players can be off for Easter Sunday.
BREAKING NEWS: Today (4/16), I posted a gun control article titled “The ‘Assault Weapon’ Rebellion”. The article begins with the question “In the April issue of Townhall Magazine, Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens asks what would happen if a liberal government passed a new gun law but nobody obeyed it? With total rebellion by gun owners in Connecticut and New York in particular due to new very severe gun control laws, the governments of these States are at a loss on what to do. In addition, the State Trooper and Sheriff’s Associations in BOTH States have openly said they WILL NOT enforce these gun laws!
Read the gun control articles on the website’s “Gun Control” page.
YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED: American gun owners and defenders of the 2nd Amendment NEED HELP in fighting off the Government and State ‘gun control’ advocates!

Here’s how (the NRA is the most powerful and influential):

The 2014 Louisiana gas station list I received from the Louisiana Fuels division was NOT in the format I expected. I was expecting one list with columns showing if a station sold E10, E0 or both. This will take me quite a bit longer than I expected……..so bear with me for finalizing the update.
Due to the number of errors on the State provided list of ethanol FREE stations, I am having to call each station on the provided list, PLUS my old list to assure my new list is accurate. I’m being slowed by yard work and getting my garden cleaned up and tilled to plant my spring crop……
I was able to complete updates on about 12 Louisiana Parishes to date. I will not load onto the website until I have completed ALL 64 Parishes. Completed another few Parishes…..going slow.

Today I posted an ethanol article titled “A Revolution Marches on Its Stomach“. The author of this article reveals how high food prices and shortages are causing riots in some Countries. There are many reasons for the prices and availability as explained in the article, BUT, the U.S. ethanol policy is a major contributor. According to the author “America is the world’s undisputed food superpower, the Saudi Arabia of grain”. So, when the U.S. converts 40% of it’s corn crop into fuel, and as a result, the price of corn skyrockets (from less than $2/bushel in 2005 to over $7/bushel in early 2014), it causes prices of ALL GRAINS to skyrocket also. So, with the U.S. being one of the largest exporters of corn and other grains to poor countries, the high prices are creating a shortage and that is leading to riots. It is difficult to predict if this will get worse before it gets better.

LSU is now ranked #7 (was 8) in the USA Today/Coaches Poll, #14 (was 15) in the Collegiate Baseball poll and #12 (was 16) in the Baseball America Poll. I might add that Ole Miss, the Tigers next opponent is rated just behind LSU in most of these polls.

* NEW CHANGES TO ETHANOL FREE GAS LIST *
We removed XXX ethanol FREE location in Louisiana this past week:
No new removals or additions at this time.
We also added ONE new ethanol FREE location in Louisiana this week:
Riverstop (Chevron Station), 31539 Hwy 22, Springfield, LA (Livingston Parish) – the station sells E0 and E10 both
NOTE: If any reader locates a store that is selling ethanol FREE gas but is not on our list, PLEASE send me the information asked for on the “Ethanol Facts” page so we can add it to the list!
We encourage all readers to patronize retailers who sell ethanol FREE gas. If they are not profitable selling EO, they may convert to sell ethanol gas and stores with EO will become harder and harder to find. ———————————————————————————————————-
Have a GREAT week readers!
