Hello all! Its been a while since we at the CLF have posted. As always, I am busy working at work, Michelle has her hands full with Spencer, Marvene has taken to some foo-foo pottery class, and all Fuido wants to do is hang out at the gun range. With regards to Winston, he's at some remote spot with a few other like-minded single men concerned with the government takeover of guns. I got a text message from him and it sounds like they're having a good time being in such close quarters without any female interference. So, as always, its up to me to break the CLF logjam and just get to posting.
And what better subject to talk about than the oil spill. See, this is clearly Obama's Katrina, given that it also occurred in the Gulf of Mexico. That right there is enough to call it Obama's Katrina. Nevermind that Bush's Katrina wasn't really his Katrina since it was all state and local government's fault. But regardless, Obama's Katrina is a way worse Katrina than Bush's Katrina, which was not really a Katrina. Anyway, you get my point.
So, the federal government clearly was not there at the site of the spill. What is it, day 46?? Bush took only 4 or 5 days to get to New Orleans, so already he is looking pretty good right now.
Then you got the evidence that this was all the environmentalists fault, as the very smart Sarah Palin said in her highly professional social networking pages. Clearly, it was the environmentalists who were pushing for deepwater extraction of oil and gas. There would have been no environmental impacts at ANWR, that is for sure. If they had just let them drill there (ANWR) then, they would not be drilling here (Gulf of Mexico) now.
Either way, the oil companies should be allowed to drill then and now, here and there, and everywhere. I do so like drilling here and now. I do so like it, without a doubt.
So this is a disaster for sure. Except the oceans will probably clean it up by itself. So we can all agree that the environment will be okay. And if its not, it because the federal government was just too involved.
I recently found this video from the very smart and wonky Michele Bachmann from 2008. She was one of the first drill here drill now proponents. As with Sarah Palin, I think you'll see that they were both just pushing for safe drilling in places like ANWR, not in risky offshore places.
I totally agree!! We ARE the Saudi Arabia of Oil. I know, I know...Saudi Arabia is the real Saudi Arabia of Oil, but we are the Saudi Arabia of Natural Gas and Coal, that is for sure. We could never be the Saudi Arabia of Wind or Solar though. That is just pansy, foo foo environmental whacko stuff.
