Well the Annointed One decided to send the Homeland Security Department to the oil spill. We all know he thinks oil and the corporations that provide us with it are tantamount to terrorists, so it is no suprise I guess. Maybe he thinks Bin Laden is going to sneak through the broken oil well and popup in the middle of the Gulf somewhere.

All I can say is be careful oil. Jan Napolitono is on you like stink on ....

Maybe just the meer site of Janet will send the oil running into the nearest cave or maybe a bungalo in Pakistan (when you read Pakistan make sure you pronounce it in your head like Obama says it, of course he is right in his pronunciation and we can all learn from his greatness)

I can just imagine HS agents running around like madmen firing on the oil. Of course, all they will manage to do is shoot some sharks by accident. It will be like a seen from Team America, where the US agents blow up all the worlds iconic landmarks in an attempt to protect the world. Team America... F YEAH!

That man is right on top of things. Thank God we have a leader like Obama. Obama for NWO leader.

Look, I think Obama is a horrible president and cant stand the man, but him sending people from Homeland Security actually is within the realm of what all HS does.



The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 230,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.

**************

This Department of Homeland Security’s overriding and urgent mission is to lead the unified national effort to secure the country and preserve our freedoms. While the Department was created to secure our country against those who seek to disrupt the American way of life, our charter also includes preparation for and response to all hazards and disasters.

This oil spll is an emergency and a hazard and disaster.

If homeland security were to 'suspect'terrorism from al-quaeda then the oil company involved might escape any fines or lawsuits... Maybe the chosen one needs to do some favors for those who have chosen him.

Just a stray thought...

LOL it is oil in the water. Definitely should be able to be handled by the EPA, Coast Guard, BP, and some scientists. But, just like everything with government, it just won't go right without a bunch of people standing around watching everyone else do what could have been done in the first place.

It is oil, it is not a hurricane or anything that is going to just crush the American people. So please tell me what exactly DHS will do to help any of this other than stand around and try to look important?

You might be on to something. I bet Bin Laden put on scuba gear, swam up to the oil platform and said Boo!, and then blew the oil rig up like McGyver.

Oh looky, another bashing hate filled thread, that is tantmount to what is ticking experienced members on ats, name calling and paranoia and flamoyent speculation. Just another speculative, well thought out and mature arguement.


Why is this thread allowed to exist?

This thread should be allowed to exist, because it just shows more government ineptness and more peeing away of our hard earned tax dollars by an innefficient government that wants to tell us what we can eat and how we can live, but cannot manage to wipe its own butt for under a billion dollars per square of toilet paper.

Did you read the decription I posted?

Also, go read this thread. It is heading towards the shore. This will cause many issues. Also, Coast Guard and other agencies work with HLS for again - disasters and emergencies.

We really do not know exactly what role these people will play. It is not reported, but under the mission of HLS, they are doing what they are suppose to do.

Of course it is heading for the shore that is what water in the Gulf does. Seriously what can DHS add to the process? Are we saying the EPA and Coast Guard are incapable of managing themselves? Well you may have a point there.

What ever did we do before there was a DHS and we had an oil spill? I guess we all just went out and filled up buckets with oil and started drinking it because we are too dumb to know what else to do. Somehow, though, it is comforting to know that the DHS is experts in oil, science, marine life, weather patterns, and the environment.

It is oil in water. You have a few choices. Break it up with chemicals, burn it, contain it, and/or scoop it up and move it somewhere. Maybe we should send some more government agencies there just to look like we are doing everythng possible.

Maybe IF obama said he was sending FEMA (a part of DHS) it would make more sense to people and also make it sound like obama actually had a clue about who does what in his own government.

Well, hopefully they handle this just a tad bit better than Katrina, but I don't believe they have a Arabian horse trainer running the show, so cheers to that.

I'm not quite sure what people want, this is going to have a devastating impact on the Louisiana coast, with a lot of it hitting a fishing industry that truly cannot take much more after Katrina, Rita, and Gustav.

How this is tied into a "Obama hate fest" is beyond me. Any president should be doing this, so I'm not quite sure how this is symbolic of a singular administration doing something egregiously wrong.

ETA: And yes, I know "Heckuva job, Brownie" was in charge of FEMA, not DHS, however he was the one running the show. Not quite sure where Chertoff was for that madness.

Because it is a waste of money and resources.. things we dont have at the moment. I could understand using FEMA if there where dead scuba divers washing up on shore all over the place, but there isnt.

Somebody please tell me what DHS adds to the mix that cannot be handled by the CoastGuard and the EPA?

You have no clue obviously on the scope of what DHS is responsible for. I suggest you read up on it before making misplaced assertions that are completely irrelevant to the process.

Hint: It does not take dead bodies washing up on shore to bring in DHS/FEMA. However from what I read they are definitely prepared with all of their coffins in Georgia.

ETA:

They can clear bureaucratic red tape faster to release monies to efforts to stem the spread of the oil, for starters. Again, if you didn't create this thread purely as a slam to the current POTUS, you could at least read up on this ahead of starting a thread slamming the POTUS with no background info.

Oh so what you are saying is that the government is so poorly organized that it didn't give the EPA the financial power it needs to deal with an environmental problem? If the US government were a business they would have been out of business years ago strictly from being so inefficient.

This isn't to bash Obama. I don't hate the guy. I just disagree with him. I just bent the thread this way to add a little humor to the fact that the government is not very efficient. If Bush was still President and made the decison to involve DHS then I would have turned it into a joke about how stupid Bush is.

Ok, well here's a tester if it isn't all about politics. Governor Jindal just declared a State of Emergency which will bring even more people into the mix to deal with this true emergency.

What are the thoughts here? He's bringing more people into the mix because he wants to make it look like they are on top of this? Shame on him.

Yeah that is exactly what Jindahl is doing. He is making it look like he is involved and in control so he gets voters next election. That is what politicians do. He could give a flying rats behind how much unneccesary expense he adds to this situation, as long as he looks like he is doing something.

Plus, declaring a state of emergency is simply a technicality to position yourself for Fed government funds in the future. I am sure Jindahl is already adding up the numbers he can get for fisherman and dead seagulls.

This is simple. You find a way to cap the wells. Then you cleanup the oil. Does DHS cap oil wells or clean up oil?

Read it. I'm not laying all of this out for you. GEL already got you a head start with a link to read up on how this works. I am not responsible for you not understanding how the process works.

Wow.


From your OP:


Well the Annointed One...


That man is right on top of things. Thank God we have a leader like Obama. Obama for NWO leader.

and the title:

Obama sends Homeland Security to Oil Spill. LOL!




----

Bush wasn't stupid. In fact I believe he was an incredibly clever man by purposefully showing himself as looking stupid in order to get what he wanted accomplished.

Yeah if it were Bush it would have probably been named Bush send DHS to oil spill. LOL!

Then I would have said something about the Texan Tard sent the DHS. Then I would have thanked God for blessing me with George Bush and declared George Bush for NWO Leader.

Got it?

But Bush would have never sent the DHS because he hates the people in Louisiana because he wont override the constitution and get FEMA involved without a state requesting Fed assistance first. Remember how they said Bush hated black people for that. Now that was funny.

The real fact here is the gulf coast is again after five years in danger,,being a resident and native of the gulf coast the chatter around here is

1 how fast can they clean it up because the 200 plus deal puts you center into hurricane season

2 will the spill make its way to the mississippi river and contaminate the water

3 if a category 4 hurricane hits with that dirty water from the spill the impact will horrible

you both make good points but its the problem that should warrant a topic not political agenda"I mean cmon am i right dont leave me hanging

I wonder if we can create a Oil Spill at the borders between the US and Mexico, maybe then the Homeland Security will show up with force.
