When the hell did Rick Perry get a brain cell?

One of the few intelligent things he has tried to do. To bad he failed....

Texas says EPA denies request to use less ethanol in gasoline

LUBBOCK, Texas The Environmental Protection Agency has denied a request from Texas to cut the federal ethanol mandate in half for a year in hopes of bringing down corn prices.

Gov. Rick Perry called the decision "a mistake" and "bad public policy."

EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson spoke to Perry about his waiver request by phone Thursday, shortly before Johnson was to announce the agency's decision publicly, said the governor's spokeswoman, Allison Castle.

A federal energy bill passed in December requires that 9 billion gallons of ethanol be blended into gasoline from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31, 2009. Perry asked the EPA in April to drop the Renewable Fuels Standard requirement to 4.5 billion gallons, saying demand for ethanol is raising corn prices for livestock producers and driving up food prices.

"I am greatly disappointed with the EPA's inability to look past the good intentions of this policy to see the significant harm it is doing to farmers, ranchers and American households," Perry said. "For the EPA to assert that this federal mandate is not affecting food prices not only goes against common sense, but every American's grocery bill."
How do you know you're fucked in the head? When Rick Perry can rightly say that your actions go "against common sense."

I heard an interview with a guy from the EPA that said he actually agreed with Perry on this one.

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!

Right. As a person who bases his career out of getting companies compliant with laws, rules, reguations, standards, etc. I can safely say that we're going to regulate ourselves into the poor house. Not just environmentally, but that's one of the biggest ones. When it comes down to it, MOST of it is just a waste of time, money and effort. Keeps me employed, though since most people don't want to learn all these regulations and need someone to "get them right."

Every once in a while this guy does something to surprise you. Good call on his part. Or I should say his position on the matter is just.

With Perry's history of "grabbing" it's not that hard ro fathom. Remember the virus vaccination for young girls he tried to slam into law as a favor to the drug labs? What a whoredog clown. But I sure as hell agree with him, or whoever thought of it for him on this one. This ethonal deal ain't working worth a damn.

If ADM is not making ethenal then they are just making it into feed or food products thus they wont make as much money. This would be bad for ADM not a good thing.

he has had a few moments in the passed 8 years or so... they all seem to fail though because he sucks at being a leader and is best suited as a follower.
