Tex-Mex Company to Convert Plant to Run on Farts


Well, recovered methane, but basically, the same thing.  Park that bad boy next to a Taco Bell, and you’ve got a perpetual motion machine:

Bruce Foods, a manufacturer of Tex-Mex food and hot sauces is converting a plant to run on recovered methane.

The Wilson plant, one of four owned by the Tex-Mex specialist, produces canned yams, potatoes and gravies, which results in huge mounds of food waste and consequently a prodigious output of methane. Previously, the plant simply vented the methane but purchased natural gas to run its equipment. After the expansion is complete, the plant will run mainly on recovered methane.

Of course, here in New Jersey, we call that “Passaic.”

Senate Finance Committee 202-224-4515 Ask Them

Without a public option, the insurance companies get tens of millions of new customers.  What do the American people get?

Post their responses in the comments here.

While you’re at it, ask them about this:

“We’re going to get agreement here,” Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the Finance Committee chairman, said Monday. “The group of six really wants to get to ‘yes.'”

The group of six.  What makes them more important than millions of Americans?  Right now, it’s their positions as hostage-takers of the public option.  What will it be come re-election time?
