Oil and water
Posted by Jeff Condon on June 14, 2010
Of all that ticks me off lately, the handling of and then the proposed action in the gulf drive me nuts. First, we have a leak which was horribly underestimated, – um.. except for at Climate Audit. Followed by the fed’s not wanting to approve the proposals of Bobby Jindal of Louisiana’s proposals for constructing whatever to save the coastlines.
Now I don’t beleive for a moment that this disaster — and it is a disaster — will have any effects over 100 years that will be discernable. Well, by that I mean natural effects, but these bastards, and they are bastards, are doing nothing but playing politics. I’ve heard talk about firing the CEO of BP— politics, I’ve seen the delay of state programs who’s governors said they had a plan but needed permission from the feds. How messed up is the United States when ‘States’ cannot save themselves without the Fed’s from this kind of thing. Compared to the Louisiana state budget, the proposal wasn’t that big.
How messed up is our politics that the ‘governors’ don’t use State money to ‘save the State’. Can they not go after the fed funds later anyway?? Just what the HELL would happen if the STATE didn’t wait for the FED to approve their master plans…..
Wanna work it all out so it makes sense?????
Obama’s goal is the same as always…put it under glorious Federal government control. Where everything goes right at the best price. After all, government hasn’t made a profit in my lifetime, so it’s not about money…… right?
Politics and reality,
oil and water.
as incompatible as poetry and reason,
alas, it is the season/century.
if the question is nonsensical—- nonsense is the obvious answer
Fire the capitalists, shut off the energy ASAP . Tax, Tax, Tax…. it’s an emergency.. Give us your faith, ignore our lack of ability to respond..
Wait a minute, just what SINGLE positive step has the US government taken? Conservative or Democrat, just who the hell can tell me what the government has done to stop the oil.??….. um.. oil LEAK… And when you’re done, tell me why we need more of that……….. and less of BP.
