Two disasters

We in this country are in the middle of two disasters :

First being the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico now day 72 since the explosion. I blame the federal government for not inspecting the Horizon properly for not listening to those on the rig. I blame our President for not putting a waiver on the Jones Act and accept the help from other countries that wanted to assist us. The have the equipment and knowledge that we don't have. With the help from abroad this mess probably would not have gotten as bad as it is. There is a tanker docked in Virginia just sitting there waiting to help. A "Whale " which can skim 500,000 barrels in a day why aren't we letting them help. If we have all the boats Obama says we have why in heavens name are we not using them. Skimmers not working for a few days, they stopped the dredging in regards the sand berns. Is it any wonder that the gulf states have taken upon themselves to try to tackle this problem someone has to do it. They won't be reimbursed for what they have spent as they didn't get promission to do it first from the feds. Damn it, time to stop all of this red tape, bull crap, work together and do what is right.
BP is the major culprit in this scenario for cutting corners to save money,not listening to the workers on the rig, at the cost of 11 lives ,and what it has done to their families. Look at what is it doing to the environment the loss of sealife, wildlife, esturaries and oyster beds. Even if they clean up what is visible there will be oil beneath the soil that will never be cleaned up. This has caused a devasting blow to all those who live and make their living in the gulf. Which in turn will create a domino effect across this country.

Had Enough Already

I am totally disgusted with what President Obama has been doing to this country. If in fact he is even a citizen of the United States and eligible to be president. Why not want people to know where you were born if you have nothing to hide. He has spent thousands to keep this from being known. All his campaign promises have been broken starting from day one. He says one thing and does the complete opposite. There would be no more earmarks attached to bills, there would be transparency so that we the people would know what is going on. Instead things were done in the middle of the night behind closed doors, then we hear about them after the fact. In regards to the CHANGE he promised, he certainly has given us that. Not the CHANGE the people that voted for him thought they would be getting. Obama has blamed the past administration for the debt we have, are we in a better situation now since he took office. For the past 18 months we Americans have sat by watching Obama destroy this country piece by piece. It is time for CHANGE we want our country back !!!! With each stroke of the pen more and more of our freedoms are being taken away. First the Stimulus package it was a big emergency where has all the monies gone certainly not for what they were supposed to be used for. We are getting deeper and deeper into a big hole that we will never be able to get out of. Our children, and many generations that follow will pay dearly for what is happening now.
Then the health care reform had to be passed quickly. What was the hurry as most won't go into effect till 2013. There was certainly enough time for the bill to be rewritten and fully read by those in both houses before it was put up for a vote. I don't want the government running health care, making decisions for me and my family as to what can and cannot be done. Pretty scary when you are over 65, I feel like any minute we elders will be put out to pasture because we are too old to have treatments done and will cost too much money. No Mr. President just because we become older we do not have to accept this kind of treatment. All politicians including the President and his family should have the same health care that has been rammed down our throats.
In all the news reports in regards to the many bills recently passed all we hear is the Democrats. Whatever happened to the other party the Republicans. Do they not have any say in these important matters ? No, because you don't want their input or even the input from the American people. This is all about you and your agenda to turn this country into a socialist one.
Then there is the matter of the Czars 32+ that have been appointed by Obama they answer only to him. So they have free reign to do as they wish as those in both houses have no say. What are all these Czars costing the taxpayer ? They all have offices, staff, and cost of travel. Where is all this money coming from we are broke. They are also replicating other jobs that already exist that we the taxpayer are paying for also.
So in a nutshell, President Obama has total control over the banks, auto industry, insurance companies, the liberal media that worship the ground he walks on, and health care. Now he wants control over communication and the judicial system. They say he has charisma and speaks eloquently (with the teleprompter ) but so did someone else in the past Hitler.
