Fraud Strikes the Heart of America’s Biofuel Industry
This is just a sop to the environmentalist, with a huge dollop of political graft, and corruption cronyism tossed in to sweeten the deal for the politicians. There is nothing to this fumarole of BS, biofuel is a lark, a slight of hand designed to misdirect those who want to be part of the green mass movement but who do not wish to actually take the time to know anything. They see the word, "biofuel" on the side of their bus, and get all warm and fuzzy. No need for the word to mean anything, because it really doesn't mean anything. So, why the enforcement of this twaddle?
Most likely these were not the "droids you are looking for . . . " or the cronies the money was intended for, more precisely. The politicians found out that the money was being syphoned off into the the wrong pockets, and pounced.
The cure is to ensure that the money never gets syphoned off into any pockets, that politicians do not have the power to create payments to cronies, or reward cronies. Converting the tax code to a sales tax would start that process. Eliminating the ability of the federal government to transfer money to nonhuman entities except for services, or goods rendered would also help. But eliminating the politicians ability to regulate, and fuss with the commercial economy is the real necessity.
