Thanks to Joe Klein's column in TIME magazine....Taking a further gamble that releasing junk into the busted pipes might squash the flow of oil...letting junk bury junk.
My friend K wrote a reflective, heart-breaking, erudite post about the oil spill -- letter from joshua.
There's not much to add. I just thought the following list of players was apt, so without further ado, here's thanks to:
BP, once called British Petroleum, who will forever be known as BP: Biggest Polluter.
The Republican Party, whose 2008 slogan was 'Drill, Baby, Drill" who now are silent or who cast about wildly to lay the blame at anyone else's feet...
Sarah Palin, accusing President Obama of being in bed with Big Oil. Oh Please.....predictable and lame, so not to be unexpected gibberish from this one (why are we even hearing from her??)...
Rush Limbaugh: "The ocean will take care of this on its own." Really??
The oil "is natural. As natural as the ocean water." Is this the best you've got? Sure you don't want to stick with the terrorist plot angle??
Rand Paul: "Accidents happen." Like foolish shit-faces like you being in the public eye??
Sean Hannity: "This is Obama's Katrina." Errr, no, this is BUSH's Katrina, Part Two. His administration's profound neglect has resulted in a national disaster we will feel forever...
Dick Chaney, for weakening drilling regulations, and
MMS -Minerals Mgmt Service, in charge of off-shore drilling, for being sleaze-bags that have been criminally lax at monitoring drilling regulations.
What is done cannot be undone. I hope we can begin anew to fix future energy problems.
