    The Minerals Management Service, the federal agency responsible for all offshore oil and gas regulation, has dined, partied, fired off shotguns, hunted, golfed, and shared Web porn – and in a couple of cases even done cocaine and meth – with employees of the very companies they’re supposed to be regulating, according to a newly released Interior Department report.

    Please note- the “deficiencies” go back to pre-2008- (actually going back to when Jim Watt decided how things would be “run”)

    “One of the most effective forms of industrial or military sabotage limits itself to damage that can never be thoroughly proven - or even proven at all - to be anything deliberate. It is like an invisible political movement; perhaps it isn’t there at all. If a bomb is wired to a car’s ignition, then obviously there is an enemy; if public building or a political headquarters is blown up, then there is a political enemy. But if an accident, or a series of accidents, occurs, if equipment merely fails to function, if it appears faulty, especially in a slow fashion, over a period of natural time, with numerous small failures and misfiring- then the victim, whether a person or a party or a country, can never marshal itself to defend itself.”

    This isn’t an accident. This is an attack upon the United States! Get the marines to SHOOT BP execs and take over the company.

    AHAB: Funding for the EPA was UP during the Bush Administration over the Clinton Administration. They were not “gutted”.

    If you want to say that Bush was anti-environment because he cared more about people than some endangered insect somewhere, and therefore he’s responsible for the Disaster in the Gulf that happened under someone else’s watch, go for it. But get your facts right before ignoring them.

    AHAB: Your tears for an extinct insect doesn’t sway me. If it were up to enviro-nuts like you, we’d all still be living in the overcrowded cities of the northeast. You’re the type that complains about urban sprawl. We’d have never had the cars and the factories that built this country. (and please don’t give me some BS about how I’d like them unregulated so they can pollute our rivers and streams.) We’d have never built our first hydorelectric dam, let alone a marvel like the Hoover dam.

    And speaking of factories, you’re part of the crowd that was b!tching when they were humming, and now you’re b!tching when they sit idle.

    This character is reading the fine print of the job offer. What do you suppose it says? : )

    AHAB: I re-read my posts, and for the life of me, I can’t find where I said I didn’t care about the Louisiana fisherman or the Gulf catastrophe.

    You’re right– people lived longer and healthier lives back in the 1800s when we cured all our ills with herbs and roots. /sarc

    Well, not really, but at least those EVIL drug companies weren’t making any $$$$$$$$.
