BP

I borrowed this video from Juliana @ A Blonde walks into a Blog. Here’s me being hopefully optimistic and spreading the message with a little sunshine instead of a heart full of disgust and hopelessness. Hope this makes us all a little more aware of the depth of humanity at which this situation is affecting us all. I hope it inspires you to make the choice to leave a better world for your children and your children’s children! If you’d like to help make a difference, please click here. Happy Mothering!

Disclaimer: Dear readers if anyone is easily offended, faint of heart, or just doesn’t like opinionated, foul language laced, bad behavior please step away from this post. Please do not walk….run! I love you all and do not want to offend.Be warned, some opinions stated within may be alarming and may even crush your dreams and ideas….forever.

As I am sure you are all very aware, the whole Gulf oil spill situation has gotten completely out of hand. I know there have been other spills all over the world. I am not so naive as to not recognize that big oil companies have been doing this shit all over the world. It’s just a little more damn apparent when it is in our own backyard or ocean, as the case may be.I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel like the American people are getting all kinds of lip service and then..BAM, bend over bitch..right up the rear! No warning, no bargaining, no KY just BAM!!! Last week I had to give the weekly throat punch to  Hayward and Obama. This week, after hearing the incredulous bullshit that fell out of our President’s mouth. I had to give it to him and him alone.He can take his throat punch all by himself. Why, You ask? Well, it had something to do with  this and a lot to do with this: “I have established a National Commission to understand the causes of this disaster and offer recommendations on what additional safety and environmental standards we need to put in place.” A fucking commission!I don’t know about you but I’m feeling condescended to lately. It’s like a parent trying to pacify a child in mid tantrum, saying anything ( basically a whole lot of nothing) just to calm them down with no intention of keeping whatever crazy promise they made to get the damn crazy kid to shut the hell up in Target! What the fuck is there to understand? It’s been explained to death. Were you not paying attention? Are you deaf? BP is a bunch of fucking assholes who cut corners, they blew some shit up, killed 11 people (immediately), who knows the true extent of the collateral damage, there is oil rushing into the Gulf and strangling all of the creatures of the ocean, people’s livelihoods are being ruined, and the planet is generally being destroyed…oh yeah and YOU are sitting on your ass watching it all happen!Understand? There, you don’t need any damn commission I just recapped. Give me the commission money, better yet..give it to the GULF and clean it the fuck up NOW !! HURRY UP!!! Now, go eat some more of that Gulf seafood that you were trying to get your constituents to eat. ABout that, what are you Jim Jones? Is Gulf Seafood the American people’s Kool aid? Jumpin Jehosephat, are you fucking retarded? No offense to any retarded people who may be reading this!
So, I am once again bestowing my special edition Doc Marten wearing roundhouse kick to your throat, face ,and testicles to the ONLY fucking idiot who can not figure this shit out! Dude, I was your biggest fan and now I have to hang my head in shame. I am ridiculed by all those who love me because of my poor choices at election time. I was so proud, so boastful and now shame! Thanks a LOT!!!! I can feel it, they are coming to revoke my Political scientist credentials because of this faux pas.Shit man, we put our faith in you and you have abandoned us. Yes we can….The question is , CAN YOU?

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming! Happy Mothering!

Bp, gulf of Mexico, Oil Spill, Barack Obama

I don’t believe everything people tell me, even if it’s President Barack Obama telling me to eat seafood from a gulf where we’re still cleaning oil off the animals from the recent BP gulf oil spill. Sorry, I want to believe you but I’m not putting my family’s health at risk because of a soundbite. After the recent oil spill in the gulf of Mexico, I don’t think it’s safe to eat anything in there and pretty sure ingesting oil can make you very sick.

In a newly optimistic tone, President Barack Obama promised Monday that “things are going to return to normal” along the stricken Gulf Coast and the region’s fouled waters will be in even better shape than before the catastrophic BP oil spill.

He declared Gulf seafood safe to eat and said his administration is redoubling inspections and monitoring to make sure it stays that way. And his White House said Monday it had wrested apparent agreement from BP PLC to set up an independent, multibillion-dollar compensation fund for people and businesses suffering from the spill’s effects.

He declared, “I am confident that we’re going to be able to leave the Gulf Coast in better shape than it was before.”

That pledge was reminiscent of George W. Bush’s promise to rebuild the region “even better and stronger” than before Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Bush could not make good on that promise, and Obama did not spell out how he would fulfill his.

With Obama hoping to convince a frightened Gulf Coast and a skeptical nation that he is in command, he is marshaling the tools at a president’s disposal: a two-day visit via Air Force One, helicopter and boat in the region, a prime-time speech Tuesday night from the symbolically important stage of the Oval Office and a face-to-face White House showdown Wednesday with the executives of the oil company that leased the rig that exploded April 20 and led to the leak of millions of gallons of coast-devastating crude.

“I can’t promise folks here in Theodore or across the Gulf Coast that the oil will be cleaned up overnight. It will not be,” he said, after encouraging hard-hatted workers as they hosed off and repaired oil-blocking boom. “It’s going to be painful for a lot of folks.”

In Washington, meanwhile, documents released by a congressional committee indicated that BP took measures to cut costs in the weeks before the well blowout as it dealt with problems that led a company engineer to describe the doomed rig as a “nightmare well.”

The comment by BP engineer Brian Morel came in an e-mail April 14, six days before the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion that killed 11 people and began the nation’s worst environmental disaster.

On the Gulf Coast on Monday, one focus of Obama’s remarks was the region’s seafood, which faces growing doubts around the country but which Obama pronounced safe. He noted he had some for lunch — including mini crab cakes, fried shrimp and shrimp salad sandwiches — and found it “delicious.”

Are you effing kidding me? What the hell is going on with President Barack Obama ? Look, I am not some Rush Limbaugh loving, Elisabeth Hasselback.  Once upon a time, I even advocated on behalf of our president. I’ve always said that President Obama is one of the greatest speakers of our time. Hell, I’m pretty sure he could talk most anyone into doing most anything. But just because you say it is, Mr. President, doesn’t make it so.

I know he’s all about change and we needed change but the changes we’ve seen lately, we don’t need. We certainly didn’t need oil spilling into our Gulf coast for prolonged periods of time.Of course he didn’t cause this mess but he’s not doing enough to get it cleaned up. He’s been able to use all his “powers” to get other things done that he’s wanted expedited..now apply that leadership to the Gulf. I realize that he’s trying to be affirmative and  put a positive spin on an otherwise incredibly horrendous situation but to tell the American people that its OK to eat the seafood in the Gulf?

Come on now, does that really sound safe? Would he feed the Gulf seafood to his 2 beautiful little girls? I am thinking not. I wouldn’t feed it to my girls. I’m thinking Michelle would have to step in to stop the madness. Does he have a degree in marine ecology or marine biology that I am unaware of? You may be president, but you are after all just a man, a politician at that.The article says President Obama “ate” some of the food inferred to be out of the Gulf and he found it to be “delicious”!

I’ve been to Louisiana and the food out of the Gulf coast was fantastic; downright tasty.  That was before everything was marinating in OIL for the past 56 days! Can I get some confirmation that this seafood was actually from the Gulf coast? The date at which it was caught in the Gulf coast? Whether or not he, in fact, actaully ingested it? Or did his secret service man eat it, then they put that poor bastard under observation to see if he dies from ingesting OIL! Seriously, please just stop giving us lip service and fix it. Clean up the oil! The Gulf will never be better than it was. It’s damaged. Oil is not safe to eat, no matter who says it is.The BP, corner cutters need to be strung up  by their balls and spoon fed some of that Gulf coast “seafood”, along with any other idiot who thinks this situation is tolerable!

What do you think about President Obama telling us it’s ok to feed gulf seafood to our children after the BP oil spill?

Well, I think we all know who deserves this weeks throat punch roundhouse kick to the head! Any takers? How about the asshole who has been letting the oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico for the past 50 days? You know the douche bag son of a so and so who is responsible for all the dead sea creatures, the sick workers trying to clean it up ( yeah, cause who would have thought that playing in oil for 50 days could be hazardous to our health?). Yeah, that’s right..you know who I’m talking about…Tony Hayward Barack Obama really who the hell can keep track any more! I mean I completely think Tony Hayward, the man who has been saying for 51 days that he’s going to get it cleaned up, is responsible for the clean up. His company made the mess, accidental or not; get your asses in their and clean it up! But then you take into consideration the fact, and its been argued according to law, that the US government should step in at some point and help with clean up efforts. It’s not a pissing contest boys…clean up the mess; animals are dying, people’s livelihoods destroyed, our planet maimed and battered beyond recognition and soon beyond repair! So, maybe I should just say that the special edition Roundhouse kick to the head with my doc martens on should be shared by Tony Hayward, all his board members at BP, and our government for being nothing if not lax super efffing lazy in their reaction to the whole situation. Seriously, how much more of this needs to happen before stopping the gush becomes a priority?

Do we need to have a picture of a dead human wash up on the beach before anyone takes this seriously? With all the technology there is today, surely we can stop this thing from gushing; cap it, tap it, plug it, hell, put a giant tampon in it, take Costner up on his offer, whatever…but make an effort! Try , try again boys! There is a price for everything, and I think no one’s wanted to pay the literal price. Who wants to spend all that money if they don’t have to, right? I mean especially considering how badly their stock took a dump today. I mean come on…BP has lost so much money. Do you really think they should be punished and have to pay out millions maybe billions to stop the spill? HELL YEAH!!! Boo Friggin who…put some dirt on it. You’ll be alright! So, come here Hayward…Mama’s gotta surprise for you..POW! Right to the head! You too, the rest of you assholes that have been turning a blind eye! Did you feel that? No? Come here..I’ll be generous tonight. Hell, I’ll keep kicking til I kick some sense right into that big head of yours!

P.S. I have not nor do I plan on purchasing gas from these idiots. I am not financing their vacations while they destroy my world! So, I am instigating my very own peaceful protest!!! NO MORE BP…..until they clean up the SEA!!!!!! Spread the word!

Disclaimer: I couldn’t find that many photos apparently BP has put a gag order on the press and no one is allowed to take pictures of the animals washing up on the shore..something about their reputation.Right., because that’s still in tact.
