Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement

Obama sheltered BP's Deepwater Horizon rig from regulatory requirement By Tom Eley 06 May 2010 Last year the Obama administration granted oil giant BP a special exemption from a legal requirement that it produce a detailed environmental impact study on the possible effects of its Deepwater Horizon drilling operation in the Gulf of Mexico, an article Wednesday in the Washington Post reveals. Federal documents show that the Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service (MMS) gave BP a "categorical exclusion" on April 6, 2009 to commence drilling with Deepwater Horizon even though it had not produced the impact study required by a law known as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The report would have included probable ecological consequences in the event of a spill.

We just can't seem to find even one person who is a leader to qualify to be the President of the United States of America, and noone here is willing to tell it like it is.

 

Obama was nothing more than a charismatic front for the ruling global elite.  Nothing original between his ears.  No ability to think critically but quite good at taking orders.

 

After living in America for 58 years, we are less intelligent; have a scintilla of personal freedom we once had; and as citizens have been run over so many times or have become so interested in personal survival we just stopped caring about what government and governance in a democracy is and when and why and how it must be protected by its citizenry.

 

In the State of New Jersey, the current Governor is proposing to defund the public library system to 1970 levels!  The King of the State of NJ and the associated Barons and Earls, along with the international finance sector posing as representatives of the people in the Assembly are doing everything possible to undermine all opportunities for people to develop their minds, their creativity, and their ability to challenge the political status quo; to participate in society and to earn a livelihood. 

 

It is as if the Grotesques are in charge; in charge of the purse; of the NJ Pension Fund; in charge of outsourcing public sector jobs; in charge of the privatization of government services (no sunshine law requirements of privatized public services); no experienced outstanding public school teachers allowed to teach those public school scummy kids, as the King wants them undermined and ultimately replaced with young, new and unsuspecting teachers who just don't care about things like having a pension or spending 50% of their salaries for healthcare while they live at home.

And narry a hue or cry.  Business as usual.  The Reagan Revolution at its absolute Zenith...a war/defense budget...no jobs...money going for image no substance; disappearing social security and all program that help people but tripling corporate welfare...crumbling, disentegrating infrastructure and wastewater treatment...

 

I am a strict Constitutionalist, supporter of the 10th Amendment, and support corporal punishment in the classroom and in the home.  I support school lunches only for children who need them.  The rest can brown bag it at their own expense.

 

My favorite past time is to read sermons of the 1700s which are the most sophisticated writings filled with tremendously thoughtful and spiritual perspectives about governance, morality, and the duty of the citizen. 

 

We are a nation pulled way down by the wolves of greed and paralyzed by stress.  Obama is nothing more than Tweedle Dum.  Our job is to hammer every day, multiple times a day our US Senators, Representatives, and the Office of the President and engage ourselves intensively in one or two area as citizens and if after all this the course remains the same then we mobilize the largest most serious non violent visible standup for our country since 1963.

I am a Liberal; I am a Conservative; I oppose the status quo.  I believe in a nation which is self reliant; grows and eats its own food, focuses on improving its own lot; protecting its citizenry; and engaging in progress.  A nation where the sick can go where needed to be healed; where acts of aggression against others are punished and where criminals are not coddled at the expense of protecting the welfare of the good.

 

I will die soon ... but I know what it is to experience our country at its best and it is a pathetic tragedy the day when noone in America remembers and noone is left who lived then and experienced it.  I mourn for those who have no idea what has been lost.
