eager to bite your fundamentals...
This morning on Fran Kelly, the ABC right-wing radio program, and in the the past few days, one has been able to hear our little liar-in-chief, Tony Abbott, doing his earnest to bite his tongue with restraint — as he has been delivering a baggage of policies that DO NOT add up, while hiding the REAL DOGS of conservatism...
It must be excruciating for him, but he plods through with the passion of a patient soggy lettuce, while his better instincts would be to punch you in the face... One can "hear" the measured pace in the slightly trembling voice holding the cockiness and the biffo back — like a rabbit that knows it has been running too wild with the fairies, thus he has to slow down and hinder the tortoise that could make a little headway...
But a rabbit is still a rabbit, and a Tonicchio is nonetheless a lying piece of sculpted four-be-two...
Still, Tonicchio can't repress himself to spray with aplomb that the Labor government we've had in the past six years has been the worst by far in this country's history. It's rubbish of course. The figures show exactly the contrary... The economic figures point in the other direction: Gillard did a good job — and even Rudd did a good job under VERY trying international circumstances, which Tonicchio never acknowledged properly.
But the little rat wants to take the credit for the annihilation of Labor — to revenge his mentor John Howard (remember the lying bastard who took this fair nation into an illegal war? Who invented the industrial relation nightmare which Tony wants to discreetly resurrect under his "five pillars" of the economy?...
Remember the man who has made his mission to ditch the carbon tax with the obsession of a mad man? And now that the little turd is about to do exactly that — while global warming is getting fiercer — the editorial of the Washington Post is leading the charge to TRY A CARBON TAX in the US..."
Ditch ethanol mandates. Try a carbon tax.
By Editorial Board,
WASHINGTON IS seeing a great fight between two extremely powerful lobbies, Big Ethanol and Big Oil. Neither should win.
At issue is the Renewable Fuel Standard, a huge subsidy meant for companies making all kinds of ethanol but that mostly benefits the least-attractive type, derived from corn. The policy demands that increasing amounts of various sorts of ethanol be blended into the nation’s gasoline supply. Yet, oil companies point out, when Congress last looked at the standard in 2007, estimates of how much fuel Americans would be using by now were much too high. The result today is a legal requirement to blend the same, mandated amount of ethanol into a smaller-than-expected pool of fuel sold, a task for which the country doesn’t have the infrastructure. And that assumes the ethanol industry manages to produce enough of each type of ethanol in the first place, which it hasn’t. The result, oil companies argue, is a “blend wall” that inevitably translates into higher gasoline prices for consumers, since oil firms have to buy special credits to make up for missing the law’s blending targets.
The Carbon Pricing of the Labor party is far more effective in emission reduction than the "direct action" of Tonicchio. But despite the Hitlerian content of his policies, his speil has been careful expunged of Hitler's choleric passion...
