Oil's Well that Ends Well?
Since I haven't had any wild conspiracy theories lately, I thought I would come up with one.
We all know that the media is controlled by liberals. There really isn't any valid argument against it. It has been proven time and time again. Also, in using my not-very-scientific method of polling in my community I am unable to find one person that thinks the Obama administration is doing a good job. The liberal media is reporting that Mr. Obama still maintains a 45% approval rating. Sounds like hogwash to me. Either that, or most of the people I know have jobs and don't like giving all of their money to the government.
The oil leaking in the gulf has been dubbed "Obama's Katrina." Look at how the Obama administration has "handled" the oil leak in the Gulf so far. They have done NOTHING (not that they really should have the power to do anything, anyway). In regards to Hurricane Katrina, the Bush administration warned people to get out before the storm hit and sent in supplies and help as quickly as possible. President Bush was STILL crucified in the media despite making a valiant effort to help the situation. The Obama administration has done nothing in regards to the oil leak other then mock the relaxed guidelines that "his predecessors" put into place. But, supposedly (as reported by the media) the Gulf oil leak hasn't tarnished his reputation. It is laughable.
Here's the conspiring question:
Is the oil spill in the Gulf an exercise in willing governmental energy control?
I think some of the stated facts in the media in regards to the leaking oil well don't seem to add up very well. I may be an ass by writing all of this since I have had a hard time following the so-called "coverage" of the oil spill event since it seems to not only be ridiculous, but it seems very overly sensationalized. So, perhaps I am not as educated as I should be about the topic.
Al Gore and the Obama administration want to pass all sorts of pollution control (READ:cap and trade) laws to "protect" us from evil pollution in our world. Well, they really are just trying to put a pricetag on air that they can collect on. Since the attempted passage of these new rules were met with fierce public objections (because seriously, we all know it is a bunch of bullshit), what better way to "enlighten" us to their way of thinking then by allowing a pollution disaster to happen? What better way to prove that any of our current means of pollution reduction/containment are ineffective then to watch this event unfold and point fingers at some companies not only blaming them for the event, but also "proving" their inability to contain it? Gee whiz, I wonder of the federal government could do a better job of handling an oil well leaking on this scale? (rolls eyes)
They very least the Obama administration will get out of this is control of offshore drilling and strict "regulations" This isn't something he is taking. We are thinking about giving to to him. Since the parties involved with this disaster cannot seem to handle it themselves (did you see all the media coverage?!?), we just might give the government control of this situation, too. Oh yes, by the way, don't forget about the new "jobs" the Obama administration will be creating by making his very, very large government into an even BIGGER one when he pushes for legislation to monitor "stricter guidelines" for offshore drilling. Sounds like the good ol' federal government might go on another hiring binge?
The Obama administration has increased our federal deficit by $1.45 TRILLION dollars inside of his first year. This administration has spent billions and billions of dollars bailing out private business with your tax dollars. In doing these bailouts, they have LOST billions and billions of dollars of YOUR money. This administration has rammed health care down your throats and proven that we can ALL pay the government to have health care and experience higher priced care that they have excluded themselves from participating in.
Do you really want these fuckers having control of all of your energy, too? Seriously?
For those directly affected by the oil leaking in the Gulf, you have my deepest sympathy. It is a tragedy.
P.S. As a side note in regards to government health care: If I were President Obama and had ran up the largest deficit ever seen in this country, what better way to get some money back than by taxing everybody for 4+ years without giving them any sort of service for it? Sounds a little fishy to me. Also, as an employer (unless things have changed in the wording of the new law...nobody really knows yet) I can refuse to pay for insurance for my employees. I will get fined, and they don't get coverage. But, the kicker is, the fine is WAY less then paying for the insurance. So, if I was to pay a fine for not paying for insurance, how does this help my employees? If my employees aren't getting insurance, who keeps the money? Does our government keep my fine money to pay bills?
