Bush allowed Katrina to destroy New Orleans? I thought that was nature.


Right of course. Bush just failed to respond with appropriate resources in timely manner costing lives. The head of FEMA (Bush's good friend Michael Brown)...his job previous to FEMA was Commissioner for the International Arabian Horse Association...google it, I can't make this stuff up.

You see the fundemental difference between Katrina and the Gulf Oil Spill is this....we were supposed to be prepared for Katrina. We had an entire agency of the US Government ...FEMA...(albiet being run by an idiot) dedicated to just that...responding to natural disasters. Bush bungled it, his appointee bungled it and it cost lives.

The oil spill? I know it is frustrating, but the hard truth is that the people best qualified to stop the leak are the people responsible for it. BP. The US Gov does not have an "Oil leak" response team...the US GOV doesn't hold a candle to the Billions of dollars in research into drilling technology that BP has invested or the subsequent accumulated knowledge base and experience. They are the only ones who can stop it. Everything else on both sides is rhetoric and political posturing.


After 9/11 we did not have another terrorist attack until Obama took office. Now we have had 3. You have interesting insight.


hmmm.

Anthrax mailings and the beltway sniper come to mind. Plus the LA Terminal shootings, the Salt Lake City Mall Shootings and I am sure I could think up a few others.

When you say 3, you include the two failed attempts?

Do you mean how many of them claimed it was in the name of Allah?

All.

Are they required to shout it first?

No, but it helps to identify those who are killing for the sake of killing and those who are killing innocents in the name of their God. It helps us to know who the players and coaches are. Just curious, which team are you on?

You can't stop nature but at the same time it raises questions as to what fema is all about and how well structured they are. They are suppossed to deal with almost any emergency including asteroid attacks, nuclear war and many lesser threats.

Are they primarily interested in incarcerating people?

Some people say 9-11 was a false flag operation, but I tend to think it was the bush administration ALLOWING al-queda to strike america so both the federal government and military industrial complex could have a reasonable excuse to expand themselves.

What happened shortely after 9-11? Afghanistan was invaded to get rid of the taliban and al-queda training camps while simultaneously allowing for the free-flow of opium.

Then Iraq was invaded on the PRETENSE of WMD even after al-biedy repeatedly said iraq was conforming to his requests and WMD WERE NEVER PROVED!

When fema got bundled up within DHS it has gone downhill rather rapidly as well as many other ONCE INDEPENDENT AGENCIES. INS has suffered a similar fate as the recent immigration problem arizona faces is proof positive.

Is it political posturing to drill a parallel hole about 10 feet away from the borehole about 15,000 feet into the seabed(half way down) and then drop a nuclear bomb to fuse the hole shut?

If the lagging in technology russians have successfuly shut down 4 out of 5 problematic wells THEN WHY CAN'T AMERICA? Are we really better than the russians or was it all just propaganda?

Makes me go hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Yes. Purportedly the russians have done this.

The Russians are whacko.

You are suggesting detonating a nuclear weapon in the gulf of Mexico?...That won't disturb the ecosystem any?

Ever fish wish dynamite? Well instead of imagining a lakefull of fish floating to the top...imagine whales, porpose, dolphins and EVERYTHING that once lived in the Gulf floating to the top...and then the radioactive wind and sealife that survives ...that should do wonders for the gulf coast economy! Our oysters are clean and free of oil!!! They also glow in the dark! Go ahead and enjoy our beaches, just wear a hasmat suit.

Obama may not be doing evrything in his power to do what he can, but in looking back at the 2008 election, many people were rooting for obama for other reasons than politics or issues. That election became a campaign against race and really illustrated how liitle we have advanced from slavery. Even in the Caribbean people were selling portraits of obama as he is God or something. Truly I believe that the bush adminstartion did contribute to the financial crisis, however a lot of obama's support came from racists!

The Russians did that by using a tactical nuke. If Obama used a nuclear bomb, the GOP would poop their pants with delight.

A lot people voted for McCain because he was white. What is your point? People were selling McCain and Palin swag? Were they doing it because they thought they were Gods? You're hypocrite and your head's full of double standards and confirmatory bias.

It has been a while since I posted anything, but here goes:
WTF did you expect would happen when the nation is duped by a glib talking neophyte politician who had nearly no real experience except for Chicago style politics and community organizing? The collective young vote was enthralled and enchanted by a charlatan poser. A Machiavellian politician who could charm the young, the stupid, the gullible and disenfranchised with mellifluous words pouring out of his mouth like honey as he read his teleprompter speeches, got him elected to the throne. He was and is a pretender and impostor.

What he will do is, lead this nation into chaos and ruin as his cabal of pro communists, Marxists, Leninist undermine the scared documents of the USA.
They will stop at nothing to overthrow the US Constitution and Bill of Rights until they are no longer the mettle of our inalienable rights.

They want everyone to be a card carrying member of the communist party.
They want this hurting nation to be under the banner of collective socialism.
There will be no individual rights or freedoms, instead only those allowed by
the overlords of the New Obama Thugocracy.

The thin skinned ONE will not allow any criticisms or rebuke of his power. He has steadily shown he can't take the rebuffs...his overall approval rating is in a steady death spiral towards hard ground.

What you can expect is more and more addresses to the nation, posturing, photo op's, and anger when it doesn't go his way. The Gulf of Mexico spill will undo his faux magnificence and splendor...as the cracks in his Presidential facade begin to show more and more. He isn't a leader. He isn't a Commander In Chief. He isn't the ONE! He is a scammer extraordinaire...

And that is what you have in the White House...A Mulatto Muslim Chicago Shylock Lawyer who loves Communism. Just Great!

Get ready for the war people. Because it is coming. The "Barry O Show" wants it, and boy is he going to get it!

Remember to vote in the November 2010 elections, and send all incumbents packing.
Send Barry's worthless hide packing in 2012...then we will have to rebuild the nation from the frame work up. That is the only solution.

Wow, you've got it all figured out. I suppose the mayor of munchkinland and Elphaba would have done better? We'd have been so screwed by now this would look like a good year. No, he hasn't done a bang up job, but he's done some good things, considering he's opposed at every turn by the republican crazies. Can't believe I was one of them for 27 years.

Has anyone considered the possibility that the "Obama Machine" could of caused the Deep Water explosion and is draging out the recovery actions to monopolize the media and pull attention away from the Tea Party and there rallies? Before the Deep Water disaster, the Tea Party was about the only thing on the news. Just when the Party seems to be gaining momentum and started calling for Obama and his cronies to answer for their misdoings, all of the sudden, BOOM, there goes a well in the gulf, people die, and the political machine wont allow the people that can, to fix the problem, and suddenly you don't hear anything about the Tea Party unless you watch O'Reily, Hannedy (sp), or the like on FOX. Rather conveinent huh? This may not be what happened, but it is rather conveinent timing, and Obama is milking it for all its worth. If it is as I said, it kind of sounds like Chicago Mafia Politics. If the police are getting to close, Blow up something on the other side of town, to keep the cops distracted. And Chicago is where Obama cut his teeth in politics, (and so did Rod Blagoivich). Coincidence, I dont think so.

Please don't misunderstand my coment in the post above "a well goes up, people die, ...) I have the deepest sympathy for the friends and familys of those lost on the rig. My appologies if that portion offends anyone, that is not the intent.

Why are they whacko? Many world powers have detonated hundreds of nukes in the past including america. Take a road trip to nevada and new mexico to see for yourself! Some bombs were even detonated above ground so the military staff could observe the results.

I can understand people are afraid of the unknown but what is one more nuke detonated at 15,000 feet below the seabed and about 80 miles from the coast of lousiana gonna do? Barely anything bad and I mean this literaly.

Why do you think america and russia have thousands of ICBMS if they are so powerful and dangerous? In fact america dropped two small fission bombs on japan(hiroshima and nagasaki) and today those cities are practically normal.

The number #1 priority should be to stop the leak so that recovery efforts can be more effective. It makes little sense to keep scooping and scooping oil of the surface if the leak is unplugged! I just hope BP got their calculations correct for a change so we don't have to go to that "dreaded" plan b after waiting 4 months.

reply to post by Confused and Dazed!
 


If obama was a true socialist he would have told BP to go screw themselves, put an indefinite ban on offshore drilling till new safety measures where in place, would have asked for the federal reserve to be audited, would ban campaign contributions, would force national healthcare the correct way and many other things socialists do.

Make no mistake, he is NO socialist and especially no communist. You cannot force socialism with a democracy because powerful people will never allow it. President Chavez of venezuela and president castro of cuba have paid a very heavy price in the past and still do. The world trade organisation composed of fortune 500 companies is responsible for banning all trade with them and governments happely comply because they are puppets.
