For the last sixteen months the GOP has been screaming that government is evil, that it is the problem, that we need less regulation in order to be more productive, more profitable, and that rules and oversight aren't needed because the free market will take care of things. You know what? If the booms aren't "effective" and the resources of BP are "not adequate" to deal with a disaster of this magnitude, then why the hell are you letting them operate offshore oil rigs off of your coastline, you jagoff? You're the Governor, Mr. State Sovereignty Teapublican guy. Stop the drilling until this disaster is resolved, and don't start it until you can be sure it can't happen again.
Folks, the hand of the free market just ripped a wellhead to pieces and is completely screwing over the Gulf. It's going to cost several billion dollars to fix. I'm sick of people saying that the magical free market will be responsible and keep anything bad from happening. Well guess what? The Upper Big Branch Mine disaster, this oil rig nightmare, and our economy back in 2008, they all got "fixed by the magical free market" where deregulation caused untold damage to our economy and hey, even killed people.
And now the Republicans are demanding that the government "fix the problem"? Screw you guys. Government is a lumbering vampiric dinosaur to you morons until you need the government to solve your problems for you. Then it's "I demand the government does something about this!" And it's the same Teabagger assclowns doing the loudest yelling and screaming.
What he said.
