Five years ago the BP oil disaster happened … 4/2010
Ten years ago today, thousands died and even more had to leave their homes
Americans must face the fact that the many natural and or man made disasters and anything in between have caused more issues than our next generation might be able to handle due to unqualified inept and do nothing lawmakers!

While the sun comes up and the light of day starts to show just how bad this oil spill disaster is and finally uncover what exactly happened. Hopefully, reality will sink in on how just one error that could have been prevented by simply making BP or companies like them put expensive but high-tech emergency equipment in place to cap the well, avert or absorb spills before they start. The negative outcome and proof that the rules and deregulation of financial and oil companies by the house of Bush … is evident. Now, we see what happens when a big corporation tries to save money but does so much damage and in this case a big impact not only the environment but foul, fish industry and the entire economy on the gulf coast for decades. It is great to have a President that is willing to change direction on issues when the facts and or evidence show that delays and or cancellation of offshore drilling is clear. What happened should not be blamed on President Obama, this is clearly a human error and in this case BP; they know it and need to take responsibility for the entire clean-up.
We all have to remember that eleven people died that day
I have to say the first reports of the explosion and then word that everything was okay made me wonder …common sense tells you okay the well is underground; it could bleed out, up or both, which is what happened. The big question is why didn’t they act before the oil started to leak. This spill, is for me a warning to either change the way the clean-up process works or scrap any plans for further oil platforms or at least get an emergency plan in place because it seems this error by BP happened because they had no plan B, C maybe none at all… I’m no expert but equipment should have been available immediately that absorb oil… bumpers placed along the coast and shores before the leak actually spread … i saw nothing but boats watching , waiting for the leak to show … unacceptable
It’s only the middle of the week, clearly we all need a little calm … be still and breathe in and slowly release your breath.
The Budget, the Debt Ceiling, and Financial Reform conflicts between the two Political Parties are the next big fights facing members of Congress as well as the American pocketbook. I say it is time to let go of that stupid required agreement to not raise taxes that all Republicans sign off on that professes their love and swear by. I say do something for your fellow American for once. Yes, financial reform is important but the battle for families on all levels will be an even bigger fight because of the impact these issues will have on everyone and that would have to be Abortion and Immigration. In my opinion the two issues cannot stand alone and at some point they will be addressed as one as folks debate when a life begins others will bring up, question or offer seemingly great reasons to strip the 14th Amendment as often as they can. If there are any responsible or somewhat intelligent and or lucid Republicans left in the room, Republicans would find it in their best interest not to be the Political Party of no. I have to say in a moment when most Americans are going over what exactly what did they do to help Wall Street, the Banks and Corporate America get back on track then have them turn their backs on Main Street again. It is not lost on me that over 80% of Americans want the rich to pay their fair share and let the Bush tax breaks expire. In response, Republicans do not seem to care because to say they do not get it is to ask how intelligent are the Republican Tea Party to begin with and that opens up a whole new bag of we should all be ascared right about now.
It was and still is a strange feeling to know that most if not all Republicans were still are willing to slow scale down or block progress for All Americans without a trace of remorse. Now, It is also clear that the real plan or rather Pledge to America was and is an agenda to reinvent how our government now functions by putting the rich in control or the ruling entity no less. The idea that a ruling class has to be in charge because they make and or create the jobs is not only offensive it would be a complete destruction of what it means to be an American and that whole trickle down theory has been proven to be a joke unless you have been hiding under a rock. The BS we all watched, heard or saw on the floor of Congress in both Chambers should have … like i have said before made it clear that McConnell was being honest when he stated he wanted to ruin the President and like Senator DeMint said make HCR President Obama’sWaterloo. Fortunately, that whole Waterloo thingy was a mission that will fail if We the People get out there and help. If you take everything that has happened since the mid-term elections the evil plan involved much more than stalling, blocking and or attaching silly amendments to Jobs bills. We all know Republicans made it impossible to make change or create jobs let alone keep public service workers from layoffs en masse while the wheeling and dealing commenced, people thrown off unemployment, which we call the 99ers, they left to fend for themselves. It is now obvious that we Americans have several flanks to battle and it includes efforts to take States rights beyond what we as Americans believe is reasonable. I have always been afraid of those words because given an opportunity any state with a Republican in charge would create change that no one voted for let alone thought would catch on given we are in the 21st Century …right?
I am letting Republicans know now that I plan to reject the idea of conforming to a Family Values Platform they might be planning to force upon us. I believe in equality for all which includes having a President who represents ALL of the People here in the US of A. I ask you what can be wrong with caring for ALL of your fellow American, not just 2%… especially since that 2% has wheeled and dealed for breaks starting from the house of bush passed on its horrible bets, pain and responsibility which in turn trickled down to main street.
