The T Boone Subsidy

T Boone Pickens is more a threat to the US than is Pakistan, but he's working hard to raise his threat-level.

Among other things, Pickens would like to own most of the fresh water in Oklahoma and Texas--which presents interesting questions about water and human life.

But his current interest is in getting a bunch of money for (his) natural gas holdings.

That may not be as easy as he thought, despite the co-sponsorship of 80 Congressional whores members

I see Cong. Todd Akin, in whose district I grew up and who is now an announced challenger to Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), has become the second Republican to drop off the odious TBooneDoggle legislation to create a Fourth Ethanol (on top of corn squeezins', wind and solar), for natural gas.

More at the link.

There are ZERO TBoonDoggle supporters from Wisconsin, which is a good thing.
