<quoted text>the article that time said if you have an ethanol engine with a turbo charger, the ethanol engine will produce the same efficiency as a regular gasoline engine.
Let's say here that efficiency = MPG

A gallon of Ethanol = 28 megajoules of Energy
A gallon of gasoline = 45 megajoules of Energy

How could Ethanol possibly outdo Gasoline?

Well, if you gave the Ethanol Engine a Turbocharger and the Gasoline Engine *NOT* then that would be an unfair comparison.

None of that matters.
Time to stop the absurd ethanol subsidies instead of playing politics.
Obama should take a stand based on principle.
And the House Repugnants will accuse him of increasing our reliance on OPEC oil. DUH

You really think the House Repugnants from the Corn Belt (nearly 100% R) will end the ethanol fiasco??

If so, you're dumber than a stump.

while PTSD is not new, we are seeing record number of cases of it, due in large part because of the number of combat tours we have asked our military serve. Some troops have seen 5 and 6 combat tours.
The suicide rate for our vets is 66 PER DAY.
Doesn't that tell you something?
If not just for the protecting our vets from themselves, background checks are a step in stemming that.
But I suppose approximately 24,065 vets offing themselves a year doesn't bother you
The latest wild azz guess for "military veterans" is about 25 suicides per day. That's "all" veterans and active duty___certainly many of those suicides are not related their service to county.

Still it's too many.

Imagine if a black adult had shot a white teenager with Skittles.

I'm quite certain you'd be calling the shooter a thug.

You nitwits have a way of seeing everything thru your racial hatred.

You've proven it often. Now go back to the birfers, where you belong.

Realtime is correct, for a change.
But the problem goes much deeper than just PTSD, with the complete loss of privacy of medical records resulting from Obamacare.
Anybody would be a fool to seek psychiatric help, alcohol abuse treatment, or dug abuse treatment. Or to take their children for psychological counseling if having problems in school. Or to allow their children to be prescribed medication for ADD or similar ailments, something that would brand them for life.
Best to see a doctor using a false ID and pay cash to keep your personal information out of government hands.
ADD children in some districts, are already branded for their educational life as are many free lunch kids.

ObamaCare has dik to do with it and won't unless HIPAA is revised dramatically__or repealed.

If the IRS targeted to help the Democrts, then it broke the law.
If they just targeted political groups applying for a tax status for which political groups do not qualify, then the IRS was doing its job.
That cockroach with a microphone was still recording illegally.

"If"? Are you in the habit of apologizing for things you didn't do?

Would you say Media Matters "qualifies" as a political group?

Obama's woes flow out of BIG government philosophy...

The latest problems with the IRS witch hunt, the seizure of phone records from The Associated Press, the conflicting Benghazi stories and disastrous attempts to enforce Obamacare may all seem unrelated, but they are not.

Each of these events is the direct byproduct of two central philosophies of the Obama administration -- the massive expansion of the size and power of the federal government and a lack of trust in the American people.

These scandals were bound to happen. In fact, it was inevitable, and there will be more. President Obama has grown the size, the scope, the debt and the power of the federal government to such irresponsible proportions that problems like these are an inevitable result.

Now we have not just BIG government, but BIG brother running BIG government.

if you are talking about Terri Schiavo, yes I am for the husband having the right to make that medical decision. BTW the autopsy showed that her brain had atrophied to about 75% of a normal brain size.
so yes I am for allowing love ones the option of pulling the plug on brain dead patients when its only machines keeping them alive
HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO TAKING PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT VETS SUFFERING FROM PTSD FROM OFFING THEMSELVES???
WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU???
I'm against the death penalty because it overtaxes the system with appeals, waste millions of taxpayer dollars and because there have been too many instances where the condemned have been proven innocent
Like I said, hypocrite. You are all for the death sentence for the innocent and not the heinous murderer right up until it interferes with a higher agenda, keeping a subversive gun grabbing liar in the Oval Office. There are many ways to kill one's self; take away a gun and there are always alternatives. A determined person will always find a way to kill themselves or someone else, i.e., drugs, poison, knives, drowning or doing The Carradine.

Why do you hate Democracy so much?

You are a liar and a subversive. Is your last name Castro?

You were 21 over 50 years ago, you old hag.

I can mock and laugh at your stupidity and racist commentary.

That's enough. To expose you hateful cretins for what you are.
