many other products. It's the small, independent restaurants that give
it away because they don't produce enough to make it profitable to sell.
The big chains all have contracts with recycling companies. This is why
biodiesel isn't as cheap as a lot of people would like you to think. If
you start useing biodiesel on a scale where people aren't giving you the
raw material for free, it suddenly becomes much more expensive. Ain't no
such thing as a free lunch.

can be a doublethink version of oppression, that individual liberties
surrendered for whatever good reason are freedom lost."
