    Given the volume, this is less an epic than a short story of hypocrisy, maybe a three-act play if we're being generous, since it fits the pattern so well.

    If you want hypocrisy sonnets, you'll need true masters of the art, like Hillary Clinton.

Thats the spin of the professional spinners. It is not hypocrisy to try and partnership with an organization that provides obvious economic benefits to a community while trying to get them to comply with environmental standards as well, and giving them a platform in which to extoll those efforts publicly.
    Wow... talk about SPIN!

    Did you actually read the article? Here's one of the factors that makes this "epic hypocrisy".

    Source: The OP's Article

    What makes Andrew’s article the most epically hypocritical smear of all time is that in 2009, Andrew not only recognized Flint Hills’ environmental excellence, he made a business proposal to partner with Flint Hills to advertise and promote the company’s stellar environmental record!

    So, on one hand this Andrew feller is attacking the environmental footprint of Flint Hills, after first making a business proposal to partner with them and extolled their virtues.

    Now, unless things at Flint Hills have gone to Heck in a Hand Basket, to what would you attribute this "mixed message" by this Andrew feller?

    Your buddy,

    CP

Second the partnership with Green/Mark was initiated by Andrew to promote "Project Green Fleet" and its initiative to reduce carbon emmisions which Flint Hills Resources refused to sign on to. Now why do you think Flint Hills Resourses would turn that opportunity down? Use your head!

    Hi, Jim! Welcome back.

    Congratulations on a very well written post! You only spelled "Resourses" and "emmisions" incorrectly, but otherwise, not bad!

    Your buddy,

    A long post, made long by many multiple picture windows, so do not mistake any of them as being the end of this interesting article.

    The hypocrisy has to do with an attack against the Koch brothers; the article really is fascinating.
