OK all ye "Real Americans" and Tea Party Members...Here is your next target.

Bobby Jindal, Gov of Loiusianna.

In a week he has gone from "Drill Baby Drill" and we don't need any socialist government assistance...to..."HELP!!"...The largest off-shore oil spill in history is bearing down on us!!!


Jindal to refuse stimulus money

Gov. Bobby Jindal

I just checked my pocket sized constitution and I can't find where the Federal government is given authority to intercede and help in instances like this.

Jindal is now officially a socialist and has pleaded with the Obama Administration to over-step the bounds of the constitution...

You're right. He should have done nothing. Maybe they could have set the marshes on fire and roasted some marsh mellows and hot dogs.

This is devastating to the their fishing industry...of course he's going to ask for frickin help to try to SAVE HIS STATE.

Some people will go to any lengths...

Oh wow, really, ha ha ha

So I guess Bobby Jindal is friends with William Ayers and, He has staff members who look up to Mao, He shook hands with Chavez, He helped passed the worst form of socialized entitlement this year "THE HCR Bill", He also helped take over GM, He also helped take over the Student Loan Program, He is also pushing for Cap & Tax scheme...?

Sure sure, he is a Socialist...LMAO


Edit to Add: How could I forgot Bobby hired his pal Van Jones "a devout communist" to help him in the EPA, He also has friends in the Union Circles who go out to rough up people who oppose his agendas, He has the ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, PBS in his back pockets, He also sat in the pews to listen to Jermiah Wright and his lovely words, .... some more

Damn that commie!
Unless The Constitution specifically defines "oil spill cleanup" as a Federal responibility, we should just do nothing.
Socialists are runnin' wild these days!
String 'em up!

This thread is a hoax.

Oil rig spills have nothing to do with socialism. Your claims make no sense.

Do you even know the definition of that word?

No wonder the Democrats don't take you guys seriously. You don't even bother to use dictionaries.

Exactly.

No wonder you are not taken seriously.

This type of mentality is just purely nonsense.

When you spill garbage you clean it up. It's common sense.

Making one of the biggest oil spills on Earth than trying to claim "The Constitution doesn't authorize cleaning it up" that is the biggest load of bunk ever.

You guys have alienated yourselves from logical thinking citizens. It's your own doing.

I wonder what would of happened if Loiusianna would of seceded like people here on ATS always want states to do???

Hmmmm...I guess they CAN'T take care of themselves after all.

Thank god for the UNION...united we stand...well you know the rest.

I'm no a fan of Jindal either but this is a poor way to make the other side of the argument look ludicrous. The constitutional issues with ANY piece of legislation stand on their own merit, and if found to be inconsistent with Constitutional tradition then it is bunk.

You need to learn what socialism is. You also need to learn that the constitution provides all the power needed to deal with emergencies like the oil spill at state and federal level.
These sort of things fall under the general welfare clause. You need to learn HOW to break down every bit of laguage in the Constitution, as nearly ever word and sentence is a legal clause.

Will right wing hypocrisy ever end?

"The free market can fix all our problems." Urgh.. okay, if that's true, then why is the fourth largest corporation in the world pleading for US government assistance to clean up their mess?

Actually, since the blowout occurred in Federal waters under a Federal Lease, it appears that Mr. Jindhal is well within his right to request Federal assistance, since the MMS issued the drilling permit.

Louisiana is currently a welfare state -- which receives more federal government spending than what it pays in to the federal government.

Louisiana also voted for McCain, and is one of those places that blames all our problems on "welfare" and "big government."


It's sort of amazing how ass-backwards and stupid conservatives can be...



/edit:


Louisiana taxpayers receive more federal funding per dollar of federal taxes paid compared to the average state. Per dollar of federal tax collected in 2005, Louisiana citizens received approximately $1.78 in the way of federal spending. This ranks the state 4th highest nationally and represents a rise from 1995 when Louisiana received $1.35 per dollar of taxes in federal spending (ranked 7th nationally). Neighboring states and the amount of federal spending received per dollar of federal tax collected were: Texas ($0.94), Arkansas ($1.41), and Mississippi ($2.02).

Because it's not just their problem. Government helped them do it!
Everybody knows we have a bought and paid for government, and yet people always leave the government out of the blame when it really counts.

I guess you didn't read the memo where Napaloitano mentioned herself several times that BP is paying for the entire cleanup, even for the assets being deployed right now by the FEDS.

Oh, so the government caused the oil spill? That's news to me...

Why can't we just leave poor BP -- the fourth largest corporation in the world -- alone?

Uh, what's that have to do with what I said?

BP is using state assets to assist in cleaning up the mess they created, and it's probably a good thing we have a relatively powerful government, because if we hadn't, there wouldn't be anybody there to fix the problem that BP (inadvertently) created.

Yet, you constantly hear conservatives complain that we don't need the govt, and that the market can solve all our problems -- clearly that has (once again) been proven false.

That's not my point and you know it. Corporation get away with things because the government let's them...Until it blows up in their face.

I don't care what the reasons are. This is a DISASTER. This hurts our fishing industry, our economy, oil prices, Louisiana, and not to mention...is absolutely TERRIBLE for our wildlife...which is our FOOD SUPPLY.

They weren't required to implement the safeguards that other countries implement that could have avoided this accident.

First, I'm not arguing against government intervention in this mess.

Second, we don't know what caused this yet because no inestigation has started. We have no idea what would have prevented this. So what are you saying exactly?

This is starting to look like sabotage. How do you stop sabotage with legislation from other countries? We have a different ball game here.
