Gee. No one could ever have predicted this. Of course when you tell people that there they have a chunk of $20 billion just waiting for them they’re going to try to pull one over.

That Didn’t Take Long

I knew it wouldn’t take too long for a lefty greentard to be upset that the oil spill isn’t the ecological disaster the media hyperbole claimed it would be. Now that the oil on the surface appears to be dissipating, the notion of a recovery from the spill, repeated by politicians, strikes some here as […]

A Lost Opportunity

Something tells me that the terminally libertarded are very upset at this; that, rather than a good thing, they have been robbed of an opportunity to further use the hyperbolic oil spill coverage as a means to further the progressive agenda. The Washington Post: Oil from the BP blowout is degrading rapidly in the warm […]

Bad Weather May Delay Relief Well Drilling

I’ll bet that someone, somewhere will find a way to blame this on free market failure.

WSJ: BP Relied on Faulty U.S. Data

The more information that emerges about the oil spill, the more it looks to be a government induced problem, and not solely a matter of corporate irresponsibility (though I suspect that the likes of MSNBC and CNN will still spin it that way).  Neil King Jr. and Keith Johnson via The Wall Street Journal: BP […]

Hypocritical Bunch

I would imagne that the very same people who are bitching and complaining about Tony Hayward going on his yacht yesterday have absolutely nothing to say about Obama’s various golf outings since the oil spill (regardless of the fact that neither of them can personally do anything about the spill).  I won’t begrudge any man […]

Blind to Reality

I guess it hasn’t yet sunk in that Obama can’t don his super hero suit, swim the nearly one mile down to the leaking oil well and stop the leak by sheer will power.  I’m not sure why this administration is trying to put forth the notion that plugging the oil well in the gulf […]

At It Again

Apparently, Obama is back to thinking he’s fucking El Supremo.  Robert Gibbs, Press Secretary of the White House, in a NPR interview on using executive strong-arming with BP: Mr. GIBBS: Steve, I’d say we’re working on that with a whole host of entities. The point of this is to create, if need be through the […]

Kettle, Meet Pot

How much would you like to bet that these same upstanding citizens covering themselves in oil and screaming frantically for a government takeover of BP (as if the federal government has more expertise in the complex science of deep water drilling than BP which specializes in the complex science of deep water drilling) are the […]

This is BP’s Problem, Not Ours

Clifford Krauss and Matthew L. Wald via The New York Times: The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency in Louisiana announced Tuesday that, at the request of Gov. Bobby Jindal, the federal Department of Commerce had declared a commercial fisheries failure for the state, allowing commercial fishermen to receive aid from the Economic Development […]

Who’s to Blame?

Apparently executives from the 3 companies involved in the gulf oil spill, BP, Transocean and Halliburton, are tripping over themselves because they can’t get to the podium fast enough to lay the blame for the spill on someone else.  If the Libertarian Party was in charge of shit, the answer would be easy.  According to […]
