Nature is More Resilient Than We Think

July 29, 2010

60,000 barrels of oil a day gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.  Environmental Disaster.  The worst oil spill in the history of the world.  A disaster beyond epic proportions, which will plague the Gulf for years to come.  We’ve been hearing about this for months now, with no end in sight.  The Federal Government under the [...]

America’s Role in Lockerbie Bomber’s Release

July 26, 2010

The Dem’s insatiable appetite to drive a political point home inadvertently may have gone too far.  In the wake of the BP Gulf Oil Spill, Democrats wanted to pound the demonization of BP by investigating further, looking into a potential link between BP and the 2009 release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the man charged, tried [...]

BP Oil Plug — So Far So Good

July 17, 2010

It’s been nearly 48 hours since BP’s latest attempt to plug the leak stopped the gushing.  So, far so good on stopping the leak, but more tests are coming which may include letting the oil flow again to test the pressure. In the meantime, President Obama has been rigorously working on his golf game and [...]

BP “Coffee” Spill

June 17, 2010

Earlier today I was told by a conservative friend at work to check out “BP Spills Coffee” on YouTube for a spoof on the oil disaster.  It was just a matter of time, I suppose.  Unfortunately, it’s missing the equivalent of a useless Obama figure, but it’s still pretty good.  There’s a little language towards [...]

Salazar’s Silence on BP Role

June 10, 2010

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is showing himself to be royally incompetent in Gulf Oil Spill fiasco, now entering its 52nd day.  Salazar had to apologize in front of a Senate committee today because he misrepresented the “experts” involved in crafting a report about the spill.  Of course, the report’s conclusion was to ban offshore drilling, [...]

Our Classy President Tries to Pretend He’s All That

June 8, 2010

Yesterday, Obama attempted to be hip and cool and tried to show some emotional investment in the BP oil crisis that is rapidly becoming Obama’s Katrina by showing BP that he meant business: I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin’ heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago [...]

Poll: Oil Spill Becoming Obama’s Katrina

June 7, 2010

I want to stay consistent on this point:  Obama did not cause the oil spill, it was Dick Cheney using Halliburton’s Oil Spill Machine that did it — duh! (you have to say “duh” in this case with that ditsy and annoying upward inflection) That being said, when you’re President you get praise when things [...]

The BP Oil Spill was Not Bush’s Fault

May 26, 2010

Yesterday, the soon-to-be former Senator Chris Dodd from Connecticut (phew!), finally blamed the BP Gulf oil spill on George W. Bush.  Check the video at about 1:20 or so for the good stuff. Honestly, I was beginning to wonder what was taking them so long! But, truth be told, Dodd’s all wrong:  Bush has a [...]

New Oil Tax in the Works

May 24, 2010

In order to pay for the Gulf oil spill and to punish BP for having the nerve to drill at all, Congress is set to sneak a 32-cent tax per barrel of oil into a larger spending bill as early as tomorrow.  That’s a quadrupling which will, of course, ripple up the chain to your [...]

Drill Baby Drill? Maybe Not Anymore

May 3, 2010

Given the cover of the big oil spill in the Gulf Coast, I believe that it isn’t going to take long for the Obama Administration to conclude that their anemic offshore drilling policy is just to risky to continue.  The Administration is already throwing BP under the bus as cover for the government’s inaction.  BP [...]
