A Plan to Save The Wetlands…

On June 15th, when Obama gave his speech about the BP oil spill catastraphuk, he said the following: “…It’s also clear we need a long-term plan to restore the unique beauty and bounty of this region. The oil spill represents just the latest blow to a place that’s already suffered multiple economic disasters and decades of environmental degradation that has led to disappearing wetlands and … Continue reading A Plan to Save The Wetlands…

Congress Still Screwing New Orleans…Robbing Katrina to Pay for BP

The House of Representatives passed a Supplemental Appropriations Bill earlier this month that would remove $400 million from Post-Katrina Recovery Programs like Road Home in order to fund other projects, including $304 million for Deepwater Horizon-related remediation and investigation. In addition the bill does provide 1.5 billion to FEMA which could theoretically pay for projects in the New Orleans area, but it could also pay … Continue reading Congress Still Screwing New Orleans…Robbing Katrina to Pay for BP

Hey Chicago – BP’s already spilling into Lake Michigan

Good morning Chicago! Were you aware British Petroleum, scourge of the south is closer to home than many of you may realize? Yes-sir, they have been operating the fourth largest oil refinery adjacent to Lake Michigan for years, and dumping pollution into the lake for just as long. The Whiting Refinery, located in Whiting, Indiana is perilously close to the drawing point for the entire city of … Continue reading Hey Chicago – BP’s already spilling into Lake Michigan

BP, EPA tells cleanup workers they are safe, just don’t breathe

British Petroleum released, quietly…oh so quietly, new information today about their results from chemical testing. What? You mean the PR department didn’t try to splash that one all over Google, Facebook, MySpace, Sarah Palin’s forehead and Texas Congressman Joe Barton’s ass? Nope. Turns out that 20% of the Gulf Coast cleanup crews have been sickened by a chemical that sickened cleanup workers involved in Exxon’s … Continue reading BP, EPA tells cleanup workers they are safe, just don’t breathe

Whadda Ya Mean, Disenfranchised? Well, Let Me Tell Ya…

Disenfranchised: 1. To deprive (a person) of a right of citizenship, as of the right to vote. 2. To deprive of a franchise, privilege, or right. I suppose we could start with a definition, tends to set the ground rules so to speak…but sometimes dictionary definitions don’t always cut it man, so stagnant, cold…and this definition certainly is. When one says they are or feel disenfranchised … Continue reading Whadda Ya Mean, Disenfranchised? Well, Let Me Tell Ya…

Bobby Jindal…Crusading for the Gulf or 2012? Blame games

Interesting article from Alternet…the high points being: 1. Still hasn’t deployed the National Guard. He has over 6000 at his disposal, has only deployed 1100 and continues to blame the feds for not giving him the 6000 he requested… 2. His office approved the oil spill plan he states isn’t effective at cleaning up the oil…but he blames the feds for this too. 3. He … Continue reading Bobby Jindal…Crusading for the Gulf or 2012? Blame games

What’s the Problem Gov’nuhs?

Somebody is lying…either Bobby Jindal or Barack Obama. In either case there appears to be 7000 National Guard troops in Louisiana who are not being used; they’re just sitting idly by. If you’re a Democrat my guess is you might say it’s Bobby Jindal playing politics. If you’re a Republican, you would probably say Obama is lying about the resources available, again. But if you … Continue reading What’s the Problem Gov’nuhs?

Gulf Recovery Act?

I will eat my words…okay, well some of them if this comes to pass…this is from Anderson Cooper where Douglas Brinkley is discussing a Gulf Recovery Act, on the magnitude of the St. Lawrence Seaway…all funded by BP and TransOcean for what they’ve done. If this is correct they will go after these assholes for breaking the National Resource Damage Act and the Oil Spill … Continue reading Gulf Recovery Act?

Hey Sarah Palin…Would you STFU already? Really, you’re an opportunist, we get it…

Another day in the Gulf of Mexico, another pointed missive from the likes of Sarah Palin. You know, I don’t care much for Obama either, but at least he isn’t just throwing crap out to Facebook. Today she cites her executive experience as making her better qualified to handle the BP Oil Gulf Explosion Catastrophe. This, despite quitting the governorship in her first term. This … Continue reading Hey Sarah Palin…Would you STFU already? Really, you’re an opportunist, we get it…
