A reader wrote me an e-mail with a good suggestion I’m posting here:
We need to visualize effective action.
And besides visualize effective action, we should start bugging the crap out of our government. This is now the biggest man made ecological disaster in the history of the human race. Not only should all parties be prosecuted, that is anyone with the slightest bit of power to have stopped what happened from happening, but we have to do any crazy ass thing we can think of and try it.
If James Cameron wants to build a robot under water to save the ocean, let him.
Who the hell is BP to tell him he can’t get involved and why the F is our government allowing them to dictate how the clean up should be dealt with? They F-up they should shut up and pay for every legitimate as well as every hair brained idea anyone can think of to get the bleeding to stop and if they don’t like it they can shove it up their monarchy loving butt holes.
This is OUR COASTLINE, last I looked the Queen wasn’t living in Texas, at least not their Queen.
Why the Obama administration has allowed them to have a say in anything is beyond me. This to me is the biggest problem of his administration. He’s too diplomatic. Sometimes you have to be a jerk to get things done and I’m not sure he’s willing to be a jerk.
Oh, well this is the other side of the coin. Get an erudite, intelligent idealist in leadership and you either get a Lincoln or a Carter. The difference being Lincoln took big risks, Obama should take heed in that regard. He has to stop being so middle of the road and so safe. The whole Democratic party better get a grip and be more aggressive or they will stand for nothing except reasonableness. Not something to write home about for sure.
So call your representatives, senators and the White House! Don’t just e-mail them! Drive them insane!
