President Obama's public statement and decision (about three weeks before the greatest offshore oil drilling disaster in U.S. history began) to allow offshore drilling because "the tired old arguments" against it were now moot because of all "the improvements in oil drilling technology", will go down as one of the most foolish, unaware, dumb, and dangerous decisions ever made:
The Obama administration is proposing to open vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time ... the sheer breadth of the offshore drilling decision will take some of his supporters aback ...(NY Times). It will become known as the "top kill" policy which killed the top politician's effect in the top office in the federal government, at least to those who know "the sheer breadth" of the insanity of that decision.
The oil barons, plunder barons, yes, the robber barons now may be getting scared themselves:
Mr Suttles said BP had determined that the "top kill" method - which had been going on since Wednesday - had failed after studying the results for three days.(BBC News, emphasis added). Oh, but you oilsters are a great "success" in the eyes of Wall Street, The White House, The Congress, and the world wide corporate community.
"We have not been able to stop the flow," he told reporters on Saturday.
"This scares everybody, the fact that we can't make this well stop flowing, the fact that we haven't suceeded [sic] so far," he said.
You are a great "success" at deceiving the world into believing oil addiction is the only addiction available, the only "solution."
You in power are criminally insane because you have removed accountability to the people from your sphere.
The result is that accountability is now in the hands of a planet that has a "Toyota gas pedal" that you installed on it.
So get ready to experience your insanity like never before, because what is going to happen will eventually drive everyone insane with fear.
