|The $8 million dollar "simple man"|
"Growing up the son of a sawmill worker I learned nothing's more important than a man's word." Robert Bentley
That didn't last long and my how your nose does groweth Governor.
Before viewing the following video clip, let's keep in mind that a biofuels plant was just announced by Alabama Governor "you will respect my authority" Bentley for the Boligee area of Greene County, Alabama. The deal has been in the works for two years.
Every US taxpayer is on the hook to the tune of $250 million to experiment with Cellulosic Ethanol thanks to the USDA passing out OUR money like candy to uber rich billionaires, hedge fund company investors and the French oil company Total, to come up with gasoline for one dollar a gallon.
It will never happen.
It's over-hyped, it's playing on climate change fever and it pays select interests very well with OUR money!
Never mind that Coskata already has a Pittsburgh location close to the GM plant it's researching CE for, and that they claimed to "have fuel online by 2009" (didn't happen), let's go build another plant courtesy of the US taxpayer, greedy Alabama politicians and special interests. We'll prop up our Monsanto buddies in the process with that fine, temperate Alabama climate that's perfect for genetically modified switchgrass and trees and some unsuspecting hick farmers will also get a federal hand out for planting Monsanto's wicked weeds.
(More on that here.)
It's one big fleece job being set up in West Alabama, period, end of story.
Monsanto has been sneaking around Auburn University for a number of years and have firmly entrenched themselves in the agricultural programs. One person links all of this together: Bentley's Transition Team communications director, the (we hope) incomparable Stephen "Steve" E. Bradley, who lobbies for Monsanto and knows a thing or two about verbal slight of tongue and clandestine operations, among his other "talents."
And Bentley picked him and his BARD buddies to lead his transition into the governorship.
Bentley claimed, at the last "goobernatorial" debate, that Boligee was only good for "raising fish and big deer" not for a "biotech company."
Either he was lying then to appeal to a particular voting block, or he's lying now by making it appear this just all of a sudden materialized and Boligee, in the short span of three months, is now the perfect place for a biotech project.

There is no way in hell he came up with that biotech reference last October without knowing something about the project.
How about an explanation from the "I am upright man" of his word"?
Word to the wise governor, you're playing with some dangerously crafty men who can chew a good "Badtist" up and spit him out without batting an eye and you're in way over your head, but you're just not quite smart enough to figure that out.
Better watch your bass Doc or you'll wind up as a bunk-mate of Langford or Scrushy before it's all over with.
