Venezuela and Iran are BFF. They added each other as MySpace friends and Facebook. (Ahmadinejad “poked” Chavez, I hear).

What a wonderful rationale for the US to find alternative fuels for our transportation needs, as soon as possible. The country, however, is completely backwards. We think that giving drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens is a huge public safety issue. Yet, we refuse to implement tougher mileage standards for cars – standards that Europe exceeded long ago – and we make-believe that corn is the answer to all our problems, and that we’ll all drive on into the future in a 10 MPG Chevy Avalanche running E85.

It’s 2007. Surely we can find something other than corn and petroleum with which to fuel the future of American transport.

One Response to “Petro-axis”

    In a sane world, our “dependence” on foreign oil would be viewed as free-trade. Also, the government wouldn’t be screwing up alternative fuels, like it is with ethanol.

    Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
