I was thinking (and that can be quite dangerous in certain situations) of what to write for my 500th post at Liberal Fair.
I like racing and thought about the Daytona 500 at the Daytona International Speedway, the Indianapolis 500, and from my home state, the Pennsylvania 500. If I wrote a post on these races, I would probably get excited and breathe out more carbon dioxide than I usually do, so the races were eliminated.
For a more sedate and less carbon-producing items, I thought about playing 500, visiting memory lane by looking at an old Commodore Amiga 500 computer, or perusing the list of top 500 Green Supercomputers, but I have enough computers in my life and I like Spades, Hearts, Canasta and double-deck Pinochle a lot more.

The Democrats, driven by the far-left-wing Marxist “environmentalist” nuts have developed a great energy policy that would make George Soros proud.
Every alternative-energy product ever dreamed about immediately takes the place of our fossil-fuel usage.
They propose taking huge portions of our corn produced and making “moonshine for moonbats” ethanol and using that to drive our cars. The big problem with this is that there is not enough corn to even put a dent in our gasoline usage. If we took the entire world’s corn supply (yes, the bad US farmers do grow most of the worlds supply of corn and wheat) we would only be able to supply less than 10% of the gasoline we need. This also has a problem of not having any corn to eat or use as feed for cattle. Of course, PETA would love to eliminate hamburgers.
With just the small amount of ethanol that the liberal congress (including RINOS) has mandated we mix with the gasoline today, has caused the price of corn to rise. Mexicans (the ones still in Mexico) are really in a quandary, because a lot of them cannot afford the increased cost of this staple for their daily food. Remember the poor in the US are rich compared to the poor in Mexico and other countries.
