Donít Be Too Mad

Donít be too mad at the Republicans.
When Rudy and Sarah and John and Newt
Shouted ďdrill, baby, drillĒ
We thought it was cute
ĎTil it turned into spill, baby, spill
And flying the brown pelicanít.

Donít be too mad at the Brits.
They just didnít know it was rude
To fill the wine dark sea
With sticky odiferous crude.
And, no, itís not the fault of BP --
They claim itís just an old rig on the fritz.

Donít be too mad at lee Bobby Jindal.
Last year he told the Feds
To take their money and cramíit.
But this year he begs
For billions from DC, aní it
Ainít just another petrochemical swindle Ö

Is it?

It is!

BTW, don't blame the republicans blame the whole bunch. Offshore rigs throughout the the EU are required to have remote controlled blowout preventers. None of the rigs in the Gulf have that requirement. You CAN blame BP as they have them on their European rigs and know why but chose to go with the US regulations instead of regulating themselves just to save a few bucks..

There is no difference with the remote controlled BOP.
Once the BOP get non respond from the Rig, he should close automatically. The Transocean staff tried to activate the BOB manually but the BOB was not closing.

The BOP is like a dead men switch in a train, if it get no feedback, then it closes the fist stage automatically. This blowout preventer was manufactured and serviced from Halliburton.

It's a dam mess, when a safety device is not working at all, then it doesn't help to have a wireless remote control..

simon said "just to save a few bucks."

Well, they'll be paying now . . .small consolation.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

What just happened is a crime against us all - no need to restrict it to a chat on any nation.
It sucks.

Just talked with a fellow down here on vacation, he lives in Alaska, he told me that when the Exon Valdez sprung a leak and lubricated there shore, it pretty much put him and a lot of other folks out of bus, he also mentioned that the lawsuits that were filed against exon were finally paid out last year. Not bad eh, took them 20 years to pay.
Reality..What a concept!
