Gee. Nice, dignified, measured response to a recent news piece found across the web.

You must be living in Liberal Fog, right?

That's almost as bad as living in Moore, OK without a Tornado Shelter, dood.

Are you saying that the Gasoline Engine AND the Ethanol Engine BOTH have turbochargers in this comparison?
The energy density of Ethanol vs Gasoline is 26.8 megajoules per kilogram vs 45 MJ per kilogram respectively.
This makes your Turbocharger example untenable.
Read some of the shameful stats regarding the Corn Ethanol fiasco:
http://www.energyadvocate.com/fw3.htm
"...the energy density of ethanol is 26.8 megajoules per kilogram. This compares rather unfavorably with gasoline at 45 MJ per kilogram, but is rather appallingly low, when it takes the energy of a gallon of gasoline to produce the gallon of ethanol from corn!"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol
"Ethanol combustion in an internal combustion engine yields many of the products of incomplete combustion produced by gasoline and significantly larger amounts of formaldehyde and related species such as acetaldehyde.[68] This leads to a significantly larger photochemical reactivity that generates much more ground level ozone.[69] These data have been assembled into The Clean Fuels Report comparison of fuel emissions[70] and show that ethanol exhaust generates 2.14 times as much ozone as does gasoline exhaust.[citation needed] When this is added into the custom Localised Pollution Index (LPI) of The Clean Fuels Report the local pollution (pollution that contributes to smog) is 1.7 on a scale where gasoline is 1.0 and higher numbers signify greater pollution."
Ethanol facts: http://designer96.tripod.com/facts1.htm
This whole thing reads like a page out of the Magic Negro Chronicles.
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.

I doubt it. Him and Al Sharpton could televise themselves having chicken-fried babies for lunch and a far left Democrat could still get elected because the liberals are effectively destroying the two-party system by insisting on allowing illegals be granted citizenship. You don't think they'll be voting Republican, do you? It's totally possible that we may never see another Republican president in the White House. Forget Capitalism, forget choice, forget freedom.

Hey Galt ... John that is ...

Here IS a 'taste' of how thorough they "research" ...
==========

The Media VS George Zimmerman – Trial Delivery At Any Cost ... And The CRS Has Reserved Seats For The Lynching

When we revealed the Miami-Dade School Police Department cover-up, we were contacted by a well known writer who wanted to commend the Treehouse community for our dogged pursuit of truth. Additionally, they were astounded at the information revealed within the six sworn affidavits – and asked for a phone call.
...
As a consequence of this phone call I was begged to contact the Main-Stream media and provide the information – Not to do so was framed as not doing everything possible to help the Truth, and as a consequence George Zimmerman. Zimmerguilt eventually dictated my acquiescence.
...
I was told the best outlets to publish a story about the material was going to be either the Miami Herald, or the Orlando Sentinel. Both of whom had a vested reader interest in the story; Both of whom “should” be interested in follow-up.

To throw out a consiracy theory, I am left wondering how much of this IRS mania has to do with the outrage over it's selective investigations and how much it has to do with the progress the IRS is making in obtaining the names of American tax cheats overseas.

Learn how to spell "conspiracy" first of all.

Shulman was cleared to go to the White House 157 times often meeting with high-ranking administration officials. He made more visits to the WH than any other Cabinet official.
This is documented in the WH visitor's log.
It's an unprecendented number of visits by any director of the IRS.
The IRS is supposed to be autonomous from Obamacare with little influence. It is basically the bill collector.
So if all those visits were centered around Obamacare, it still shouldn't be a surprise eyebrows are still raised.
Carol, Carol, Carol, the White House visitors logs are used by the Secret Service to know who's cleared to visit on any particular day, it doesn't reflect as to how many actual meetings took place.
The real problem with combing through the White House visitor logs is that they were a system designed for Secret Service clearance and White House security, not as comprehensive means of documenting every visitor to the White House, high to low. They miss the top end and some of the social end of people visiting the White House — people who are cleared through separate processes designed to protect presidential security other than getting swiped in at the front gate for an appointment.
Cabinet members generally speaking aren't included in the visitors logs so your assertion that he had more meetings with the White House than they did is inane.

Problem #1:
The IRS scrutiny went beyond those with "tea party" or "patriot" in their names to include "worried about government spending", "debt", "taxes", and ones that lobbied to "make America a better place to live".
Problem #2:
High-ranking IRS official knew in 2011 conservative groups were being targeted. A year before Shulman told the congressional committee the agency wasn't targeting conservative groups.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...
Somebody's lying.
The question is why? More importantly, for who?
Okay Carol, let's go through this one more time ignoring the political theatrics from both sides;
Fact: The IRS is required to determine whether organizations applying for special tax status are "social welfare" groups or are instead engaged in political activity. Political groups cannot get the special tax status these groups were applying for.
Fact: Only one-third of the groups that were passed to specialists for a closer look were "conservative." Lots of other organizations were also checked, including progressive organizations.
Fact: No groups were audited or harassed or "targeted" or "singled out." This was about applications for special tax status being forwarded to specialists for a closer look to see if they were engaged in political activity that would disqualify them for the special tax status. This closer look is the kind of review all organization should get, but the IRS was swamped because of the flood of groups applying for a status that let them mask their donors, after Citizens United.
Fact: No groups were harmed. There were delays while the groups were checked to see if they should have special tax status. That's it. But the rules are that they are allowed to operate as if they had that status while they waited for official approval.
Fact: The only groups actually denied special tax status were progressive groups, not conservative groups. In 2011, during the period that "conservative groups were targeted" the New York Times carried the story, 3 Groups Denied Break by I.R.S. Are Named . The three groups? Drum roll ... "The I.R.S. denied tax exemption to the groups — Emerge Nevada, Emerge Maine and Emerge Massachusetts — because, the agency wrote in denial letters, they were set up specifically to cultivate Democratic candidates."
Fact: The IRS commissioner in charge at the IRS at the time this happened was appointed President George W. Bush.
Fact: According to the inspector general's report (p. 10) in the "majority of cases, we agreed that the applications submitted included indications of significant political campaign intervention."
Where's the outrage except that only progressive groups got denied and none of the conservative groups?

Rep. Tom Price told CNN he believes the actions of the IRS are illegal and unconstitutional.
"This is not where the IRS ought to be. It's so very troubling that we now have Sarah Hall Ingram, who was running the tax exempt division at that time, now put in charge of the implementation and the enforcement of the president's health care law."
It's like a bad movie that never ends, isn't it?
Yeah, so what? Tom Price is a right winger who among other things thinks it's just fine and dandy to discriminate against people because of sexual orientation.
This bad movie will end when Tom Price and his ilk are in the minority and can't gum up the works.

Yes Carol and we all know that premiums never ever rose before Obamacare did they? If there was a public option in Obamacare then big insurance would have had real competition and wouldn't be so quick to raise premiums.
