Why don’t the refineries clean ship fuel as clean as they do auto fuel ?

All of these jokers need to, by law, clean their water and fuel.  They would poison their own babies if left unregulated.

They are all the same, just like most politicians.  Amigo knew it was a scam/joke when war criminal Bush 43 said for Americans to go shopping after 9-11.  Any serious President would have enforced immigration laws and built a wall.

Washington State’s adventure in Socialism and social engineering is guess what–another failure.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

AE Aurigae and the Flaming Star Nebula

Explanation: Is star AE Aurigae on fire? No. Even though AE Aurigae is named the flaming star, the surrounding nebula IC 405 is named the Flaming Star Nebula, and the region shape gives the appearance of fire, there is no fire. Fire, typically defined as the rapid molecular acquisition of oxygen, happens only when sufficient oxygen is present and is not important in such high-energy, low-oxygen environments such as stars. The material that appears as smoke is mostly interstellar hydrogen, but does contain smoke-like dark filaments of carbon-rich dust grains. The bright star AE Aurigae, visible just to the lower right of the image center, is so hot it glows blue, emitting light so energetic it knocks electrons away from surrounding gas. When a proton recaptures an electron, light is emitted, as seen in the surrounding emission nebula. Featured here, the Flaming Star nebula lies about 1,500 light years distant, spans about 5 light years, and is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga).
