I've been reading about the BP disaster in the Gulf, and I've been perusing the progressive blogs, who nearly unanimously condemn Senator Landrieu and President Obama about the lack of government response.
I've been condemning Senator Landrieu and President Obama for a long time. That puts me way ahead of the progressive blogs. And, just to include the other nitwits, don't get me started on Senator Vitter, either.
Howeve, I've got to admit that there is a hell of a mess in the Gulf right now. Somebody screwed-up, and it'll probably be a while before we can know who screwed the pooch on this situation.
At the wedding this weekend, I talked with a good friend who works in the Gulf. He's telling me that the stories he's hearing from co-workers don't necessarily agree with what he's hearing on the news. He's heading out tomorrow for another 14-day shift and I'm sure I'll see him while he gets back. If anyone knows what happened, it's the guys who work on the rigs.
However, for all those guys condemning everyone in the area, to include my Senator and President (and I generally abhor them myself), I have to ask a question. Do you drive a car? Use electricity? Warm your house or cool it? How do you propose to do those things without oil? If you need oil, from where do you presume it comes?
I'm jsut asking - - .
