Same Shit Different Day

Don't you have to ask 'What the fuck is wrong with these people'?
Take your pick BP or our government, both are incompetent. This is clearly one of those 'ignorance is in the driver's seat' situations. It is incomprehensible to think our so-called representatives would allow offshore drilling to continue in the wake of so many failures. So many cliches come to mind...
"Those who ignore history are bound (or doomed) to repeat it."
Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
"Stupid is as stupid does."

I understand that greed motivates BP, Exxon, etc but there is no excuse for the abject stupidity of our government and the reckless pursuit of oil. No one makes more money than the oil companies. They profit, they pollute and yet they continue to get subsidies and tax breaks from our government like it's a struggle for them to do business.

It has been sixty days since the explosion of Deepwater Horizon and there is still no end in sight to the oil spewing into the Gulf. Already regarded as one of the worst ecological disasters but until it's stopped we haven't seen the worst.

In 1969 in the Santa Barbara Channel an oil spill that lasted ten days with an estimated 80-100k barrels of crude released.
In 1979 another Gulf Coast event brought to you by BP was the IXTOC blowout. It was capped some 10 months later after releasing approximately 3 million barrels of crude into the Gulf.
In 1989 the EXXON Valdez tanker hit a reef in Prince William Sound Alaska releasing an estimated 750,000 barrels of crude with devastating consequences that can still be observed today.

Do you see a pattern here?

What will it take to get through to the dumbest politicians in Washington that we have to STOP OFFSHORE DRILLING NOW?

Over & over again there are politicians that stand out because they stand up and repeat the same lies one after the other. I'm talking about the corporate whores that serve at the pleasure of Big Oil and have no compunction telling you that we have to drill everywhere to reduce our dependence of foreign oil. This is absolute bullshit. Energy independence, Oy!...
Maybe Rachel can better explain that "Oil is oil is oil"..

If we only had a REAL President...

What's so special about today?

Today is World Ocean Day.

Does this make you want to celebrate or vomit?

I want to send out a great big THANK YOU, no make that FUCK YOU to Dick Cheney, his associates at Halliburton and Big Oil for participating in secret energy meetings that relaxed or removed safety procedures. Blinded by greed the oil companies have wrecked the environment EVERYWHERE they go.
How about a great big FUCK YOU to the US government agencies that were SUPPOSED to be watching, regulating, fining and prosecuting these industrial miscreants.
The DOI, MMS, EPA, even Congress and the Senate who watched as these agencies were gutted of any good stewards yet continued to provide subsidies and tax breaks for hugely profitable huge polluters.
Let's not forget the Department of the Interior that continues to hand out leases for the exploitation of oil & gas to plunder even as the Gulf Coast is decimated by the latest disaster.

There are so many organizations dedicated to preserving the oceans, the marine life and habitats only to be ignored by corrupted branches of government and the government agencies in their purview.

Hats off to the scientists and the environmentalists who tried. Even any tree hugging, card carrying liberal that still has a passion for the great outdoors and this Blue Planet.
