This whole group, all be it good people, still a bunch of hot air and political posturing for the deals and pocket goodies at that party. When we elect people who will serve their represented people and not just the hacks, then I will be optimistic about future reform.

I saw this list on another News Site yesterday. While there are a "Few Good Men" on it, by and large it represents to compromised nature of Washington special interests. The title of my Comment? Thanks to 'Winnie the Pooh" for the inspiration-sort of: "Gangsters, Banksters & Shills-Oh My!"...which pretty well covers it.

Ethanol took the place of that dangerous additive. I don't think it was ever meant to replace oil. Anyhow with my electric powered Leaf and enough solar panels to make electric for it and all my personal needs now I really don't care! Oil is immaterial to me, you neocons can fight all you want with the EPA, DEP, Exxon, Arabs, Canada, politicians and anyone else in the crude games! Good luck, maybe someday you'll realize there was an alternative! Till then keep the job creators going with their oil investments and 13% tax bills!!!!

Please Jay, It is just unfortunate you do not care. Find the facts out of all the hazardous procedures, chemicals and toxic compounds and long term dangerous leftovers you promote with your perspective and bad attittude. In todays world, arrogance used to promote an agenda is the worlds largest issue.

Who is this guy? If he eats he depends on oil,if he wears clothes he depends on oil,and even the making of his Leaf depended on oil.This guy needs to get real!
