More lies, more dead dolphins…

It just keeps getting funnier, except it’s not… In this past week, it has been reported how, in the immediate aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon explosion, British Petroleum had demanded via e-mail that it’s own expert be kept quiet when he gave his opinion stating 82,000 barrels of  crude a day were coming from the Macondo Well. In fact, two…

A lesson in spin…oil spills and states of unions

It really is this simple: At the height of British Petroleum’s catastraphuk…the scientists involved from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) were estimating at least 25,000 barrels per day were gushing from the well. But, the National Incident Command suggested they report the flow rate to be between 12,000-25,000 barrels per day. And a White House…

Senator John Cornyn, still an asshole…

Remember last June, when the Macondo Well was still spewing oil, and Tony Hayward appeared at the congressional hearing where Rep. Joe Barton, R-Tx apologized to Tony’s company for the actions of the Obama administrations, suggesting the creation of British Petroleum’s $20 billion dollar escrow fund came only after a White House “shakedown”?

This will of course only require he maintain his current course, because it would appear being “the only adult in the…

And Obama wants a thank you?

When you are the kind of person who believes the rich really don’t need any more of our money, that tax cuts to wealth don’t really create jobs, at least not the kind of jobs where you don’t need two or three of them to survive, and when you also believe that in the tightened…

So Much for Apologies…

This just in: The White House did in fact, not, hold any information back from the American public. They vehemently deny the conclusions of the Oil Spill Commission, the same commission they created. So much for mea culpa’s from the Obama Administration. So much for regaining lost credibility. Despite their own commission’s evidence to the…

Of Course It’s Political…

Imagine a country, a place where an oil spill fouled a major body of water off five states. The ensuing damage threw thousands out of work, threatened an entire ecosystem, a culture, killed thousands of birds, fish, sensitive marshlands. The company promised to do everything to make things whole again. The government stepped in and…
