I have not spent much time on the BP spill thing because it is just not my cup of tea, but I was FREAKING asked by quite a few folks to comment on it. Let's just say that the number was greater than TEN! What, are y'all wanting to see exactly how crazy I am or what?
I have a good friend that is currently helping with cleaning birds and the like, so I certainly hope they do not get their feelings hurt at all because of this post. You know who you are and I mean you no disrespect at all and you know it.
Before we get started, put your cups on because this is probably going to sting.
I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE SPILL. Not even remotely. I am not all up in arms over the accident at all, I am not going to participate in ANY boycott of BP, and I am not going to rail on businesses that idiots say are destroying the environment.
It was an accident, plain and simple, that cost eleven people their lives. These folks were just trying to make a living and provide for their families and now they are dead. If evidence comes to light that BP blew up the platform to kill these eleven people THEN, and only THEN, will I care about the spill and what to do with BP.
But some ducks, dolphins, and turtles? I simply do not care.
There will be future problems because of the damage from unleashing untold millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico, but you know what? The Gulf will recover as it always has. Holy Hell, do you folks not remember that Biloxi used to be a stinking shithole? Do you not even know about the Gulf's DEADZONES?
If you are at all worried about dead birds, then you should turn on the folks that are operating WINDFARMS because they kill almost as many birds DAILY as the Deepwater Horizon spill has killed since it started.
Yes, the accident was terrible and my heart goes out to those families that will NEVER be able to bury their lost family members, but there are sinister forces at work here.
Yes, LIBERALS are going to use this accident to wreak all kinds of havoc on our national economy, our DEFENSE systems, and our way of life. None of the things that we can do from the CORRECT side of philosophy can AID the liberals in their tasks of destruction of OUR lives. We cannot let them move their wrongheaded agenda even further, because already our country is in dire straights because of them.
We simply HAVE to back the CORRECT side of this debate, the side of real world progress. WE have to use this opportunity (not let this crisis go to waste) in the PROPER way to promote the SANE ideology of drilling in safer areas. SUCH AS ANWR.
We should back efforts to tap our resources in places throughout the plains states, the Pacific coastlines of California, Oregon, and Washington, and still MORE Gulf drilling.
And we need to repeatedly point out that the government regulations that WERE ALREADY IN PLACE failed because of government corruption. Obama's US Minerals Management Service (MMS) douchebags were wined and dined by the oil company representatives just so those companies could operate in our country. Such is the nature of government work, BRIBES ARE DEMANDED.
You see, regulations are NEVER good things because even though they are setting the MINIMUM standards, those standards always become the MAXIMUM standards in the end. The whole point of setting the regulation barre at a certain height is for people to try to limbo under it instead of producing the best product for the least money and in the safest fashion which unfettered Capitalism always accomplishes. Now, the goal is to try to get away with bending the rules because we are quickly becoming a fascist country with the morons in charge.
So, how to fix the problem? End the government agencies that CAUSED this business climate to fester. END THEM NOW.
If you are one of the crazy morons that is advocating a boycott of BP, then it is YOU that hates freedom, liberty, success, and PEOPLE. Boycotting your local BP station does ONE THING, destroys your local economy and puts your neighbors out of work. The oil fields serviced by BP are the same ones services by other companies, so it is not about oil at all. And when all the convenience stores close, where are you going to get your beef jerky and beer?
Furthermore, if your boycott causes the loss of a single job, you are to blame for the further collapse of our economy. If you actually want to do something that HELPS instead of KILLS, get your happy ass in the Rambler and go clean up some beaches. Whining about BP is NOT problem solving.
The impeachment of Barry Obama however, that IS problem solving.
Please take the time to comment.
