Wow....who knew about THIS? I just read an article about the Navy testing off of Hawaii, biofuels! YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS ARTICLE!

The Navy joined the Agriculture and Energy Departments recently in announcing $30 million in federal funding to support the commercialization of biofuel substitutes for diesel and jet fuel.

Measure's strict limits

But the Pentagon's ability to buy alternative fuel would be restricted under legislation that passed the House of Representatives earlier this year as part of a Department of Defense authorization bill.

That measure would bar the Defense Department from buying biofuels that cost more than conventional fuel. <<Wonder who was responsible for that?? Read the article at the link below.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
