State of the Union
The media is now asking experts what Obama should say in the State of the Union.
"In an ideal world, President Barack Obama would use his State of the Union to admit that America is broke and that his policies have laid the groundwork, not for a robust recovery, but rather for perpetual economic stagnation. That could be the start of working with congressional Republicans to undo the damage and get the economy going. Obama, of course, isn't likely to admit that. He is instead likely to continue to claim that his policies of reckless spending and smothering regulation are leading to a bright new future of clean energy, green jobs, and economic security."

South Carolina is pushing to be the fifth state to ban alcoholic energy drinks.
The EPA has approved the use of increased ethanol blend E15.
"Let us never forget the delicious irony of an ethanol trade association whining about the unfair government regulations that impede the development of their industry, when the majority of ethanol production in the United States is due solely to the ethanol mandates in the Renewable Fuel Standard."
