BP is not tackling this mess alone. The entire drilling industry is involved...
On having Obama "do more," WTF is he supposed to do?
Actually he's been involved, contrary to what the "press" would have you believe. This is a story that gives insight to where mainstream, corporate media is in this ongoing Gulf disaster. As I listen to the veiled and not so veiled remarks made regarding President Obama and his participation in the oil spill disaster, I can see the media is trying their best to blame the president in order to weaken his reputation. The psychology is indeed abhorrent!
Need I remind the powers that be, the most important statement ever made by the founding fathers of this great nation was:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Nowhere do I see a "Don't ask, don't tell" exclusion! Must the Repuglicans be reminded:
This view was greatly influenced by Abraham Lincoln, who considered the Declaration to be the foundation of his political philosophy, and promoted the idea that the Declaration is a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted.
...voters will recognize that the mess developed over several decades and that it makes little sense to hand power back to the party that dominated those years of national decline.
...a combination of anti-government ideology at home and tough-guy policies abroad – which led to many problems that America now faces. Over the past 30 years, Reaganism and its spinoffs under George H.W. and George W. Bush caused or contributed to: Deregulation of corporations, union-busting, tax cuts for the wealthy, a shrinking middle class, lost manufacturing jobs, unprecedented federal debt, unbridled Wall Street greed, bubble-and-bust cycles, the worst recession since the Great Depression, two unfinished wars, erosion of civil liberties, environmental degradation, and a continued dependence on fossil fuels, especially foreign oil.
It's the Repuglicans, stupid!
Mainstream corporate media did everything except kiss Bush's butt when he was running for and while he was president. The media is just as hypocritical as the Repuglican Party! Do ya think they'll ever wake up and realize why no one's interested in what the media -- to include print, radio and television -- has to say anymore? Do ya think the media will realize that's why their sales are down and profits are zip?
Amazing what some men will actually do for money! Most mainstream corporate media "news" anchors, talking heads and analysts are nothing more than puppets for pimps and we don't need a trumped up sting operation to recognize all the puppets among them, and the pimps who sell their lies!
Pullleeezzze, this is ridiculous and without merit! It is absolutely meant to instill fear and loathing (not exactly Christian). And I would have to say to Mr. Sprigg or any other man who thinks they have to worry about "gay rape,": "Don't flatter yourselves." Certainly your opinions are as ugly as your hearts and your souls and that certainly does not make you attractive to "gays," or women for that matter! Stuff it, your views are boring!
