Republicans, and their Tea Bag brethren, will embrace the Limbaugh and Beck aficionados and enthusiastically cheer Big Oil's relentless effort to destroy one of the most productive ecosystems on the planet. It's a very safe bet that after B.P. trashes the Gulf of Mexico, Florida and the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S, they will busily set about their usual reckless, irresponsible behavior while the pathetically stupid American taxpayers are still in hock paying for the previous disaster.
Here are a few, well considered opinions of B.P, and its pet Congress.
"please ... quit whining about big oil unless you're hand writing a letter and delivering it on horseback to your local newspaper to do it."
"I believe that the leaking area should not very large in the water, to enclose the spill unerwater can be more easy."
"Shut down Deepwater? Get real and get a life. America needs Deepwater production to operate. Without it, we'll go back in time and start riding horses instead of driving cars. Lets just go back to caveman days.. Will that make you happy?"
"the atomic bomb detionation sounds plausible but could yield results killing off all the life in the entire gulf. who know what resullts the residue from such an action would be?"
The morons who so enjoy their Mad Hatter Tea Parties think Liberal Democrats are fascists. Steeped (pun intended) in a collective ignorance, Tea Baggers are unable to grasp the very elementary concept that corporate lobbying is the gateway through which fascism marches.
A week after Deepwater Horizon exploded and burned, B.P. released its first quarter profit statement of $6 billion. Last year B.P. raked in $16.6 billion in net profit. $16 million, a handful of loose change relative to B.P's profits, was spent on Congressional bribes - uh, campaign donations. In 2008 B.P. reported a net profit of $21.2 billion. Senate Republicans are threatening to filibuster to keep the Democrats from raising B.P's liability limit from its present $75 million, to $10 billion.
