AP IMPACT: Fed'l inspections on rig not as claimed


www.breitbart.com


LOS ANGELES (AP) - The federal agency responsible for making sure the Deepwater Horizon was operating safely fell well short of its own policy that the rig be inspected at least once per month.

An Associated Press investigation shows that inspection frequency declined dramatically over the past five years.

Another Federal agency getting cozy with the entities it was suppose to monitor. First we had FAA getting cozy with the Big Airlines and because of pressure they finally fined South West Airlines. Then we have the SEC getting cozy with the wall street regulations and watching Porn on the tax payers dime. And also the Porn Watchers are still employed by the SEC.

Our current Federal Agencies our corrupt at the core and they need to be replaced. These people enjoy the untouchable status that the federal laws prohibit any actions be taken against the Federal Agencies. The most corrupt, inept, unqualified, under skilled individuals exist in the Federal System. Just look at our congressman who can't even read a bill that their henchman create.

Cronie capitalism. Plain and simple. The congress and the federal government are too idiotic to understand what they are even regulating. So what do they do? They cozy up to the biggest of the market and have them write the laws and regulations. Look at the health care industry. Look at the energy industry. Look at any industry and you will find the companies that are the largest set the regulations that they want.

All of this creation and enforcement of regulation is the problem. Another huge component of the problem is the LACK of justice. Courts need to be used to punish those that harm others. Period. Where are the charges for all the corruption and blatant crimes in government and their complicit partners?

The government and their corrupt practices caused the economies of the world to collapse. Period. They first force their debt onto banks and to people, the banks bundle these worthless debts into monstrous debt vehicles into the market. The market collapses due to these things. How do they try to fix it? Create more debt and prop up their cronie partners and force the people into further debt slavery. A vicious cycle that has only one ending.

The oil disaster for instance. Let us say I created a company and that company built a house, the house collapsed and killed people and cause numerous other problems. Would I not get charged with negligence? Would I not get all my assets seized for my mistakes?

Of course I would. Why not then this company? Because they are one of the big ones, they are partners in this cronie capitalist endeavor. Too big to fail. Pffft. Too big to exist in my eyes. And no the government should not run these things. Why you ask me? What happens if the government run enterprise causes such things, there is no recourse. But what about all the workers some would say? They would need to find another job.

I tell you what, if you charged the execs with criminal negligence in this cluster # of a mistake, maybe the next company may ACTUALLY try to act in a safe manner. Or try to be ready for such a possible failure.

But no, I am sure the government will use this to even further the regulations which do not work. Further the cost of production. Further the very causes of such catastrophes. All the while protecting their buddies.
