Big Sugar Cane will be the next to fall.  They didn't learn from what
happened to Big Corn.

Or, as I mentioned before, drill for our own oil on our own land.  We could
be independent of foreign oil right now, and we already have the refining
and distribution infrastructure for it.  Very little up-front cost.

I vote for this, but no more Banana Republics, please.

We need their cigars more than anything else.  Even more so due to the
coming tobacco tax to help "the children."

They have been for quite some time now.  Have you seen those Ford's with the
little green leaf on the side with "FFV"?  That is a Flexible Fuel Vehicle.
I had a 1999 Ford Ranger than was like this.

Just buy carbon credits and you will be fine.  Don't make me remote start my
truck again.  :-)

Only if you completely ignore the manufacturing, shipping, advertising,
maintenance and everything else associated with it.

You build it up and get me all excited and then tear it down at the last
