Okay, I am having another one of these, I am just a dumb cowboy moments, so maybe somebody with a college degree can enlighten me on this. <br />n<br />n<a href="">Schweitzer: Buying truck out of state was smart business</a><br />n<br />nNow you might remember I talked about this issue <a href="">earlier</a> and I find it interesting to confirm it. He uses the excuse that it is good for business to buy his vehicles cheaper out of state. This is fine with me, I really don't care. He makes the statement that "Shopping for the best price is a necessary part of controlling costs in a business." As a business man I agree with this. <br />n<br />nHere is what I can't figure though so I just must be too dumb. It's okay to want to control the cost of business by buying vehicles where you want, but it is not okay to control your costs by buying the <a href="">fuel</a> or <a href="">electricity</a> you want. In both fuel and electricity's cases, Schweitzer wants to require that 10% of these products be what the government wants and to take the decision making on them out of the peoples and business mans hands.<br />n<br />nMaybe I am too dumb, but this sounds pretty hypocritical of Schweitzer to me. Don't get me wrong I have no problem with ethanol or wind power but I believe the consumer should choose and not have the choice shoved down our throat by the government.<br />n<br />n<b>Politics is a pendulum whose swings between anarchy and tyranny are fueled by perpetually rejuvenated illusions.
