BK clipped original (Cleaned version) Drill Baby Drill It has been less than 8 months since the GOP Drones, (Greed Over People) were chatting their rhythmic monotonous utterance ‘Drill Baby Drill’. At the time, that scene reminded me of something I saw in a late 30’s Nazi Film clip. The clip panned among the brain-washed masses; hypnotized by the delusions of a truly insanely evil man; feverously they chanting some nonsense over and over again until the entire crowd worked themselves to a point of hysteria. Well, like then as today, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; meaning, I don’t hear either set of sheep chanting their idiotic nonsense now. In fact, the queen of stupidity a.k.a. Sarah actually stated that the ‘Drill Baby Drill’ was never ‘their’ slogan… sheeezzz… At times I really wonder what kind of idiots buy into the stuff? I’m sure ‘those idiots’ are out there; probably lots of them. All we have to do is open a history book and read about how an entire Nation, filled with a different set of idiots, followed and created a World at war. Earlier this week I hear the Governor of Louisiana, Gov Jingles asking the Feds to come down and spend untold sums of money to clean up the mess created by BP. Wasn’t that Jingles the one that spewed the stuff about less Federal government, no Taxes, and State’s separatism? Funny how NOW he wants the entire country to pay for the cleanup of 'HIS' state. What a hypocrite, but the Greed Over People party was never short on the multitudes of hypocrites contained in their ranks. It’s a pity we have about 30 percent of Americans buying into their stuff Baahhhh Now don’t misunderstand me because the other party look no better. I would not have believed it, but the Obama reacted just like the Bush during Bush’s best Katrina moments. It’s been over one month and the Obama is finally lighting the torch under BP... or so he sezs. I would not have been surprised if Obama [on his way to some party's fund raiser] jumped into a jet and while flying over the 23 mile wide oil slick, a photographer snapped a picture of him peering across the devastation with the same stupid expression on his face that Bush had when Bush [just prior to his departure to McInsane’s Birthday bash] flew over the destruction left by Katrina….Only in America. Obama held a Press Prop meeting today to feed the sheep his version of stuff. During his little chat he mentioned some stuff about his daughter asking when he would do something about the environmental damage, a.k.a the complete destruction of America’s Southern Gulf Eco system… sssshhhezzz… He should have just told the sheep what he probably told his daughter, ‘Well honey, daddy really can’t do anything because daddy, (just like all American politicians), is bought and owned by multi-national corporations)… but don’t worry honey, because we will be taking our Family Beach vacations in Hawaii… for the next 30 or so years. The Greed Over People party should make Obama their new Poster boy because he is just another corporatist… but of course, they would never do or admit that because they need to place their ‘registered’ own in office. This country is so messed-up. Yeah, people will always remember this as Obama’s Katrina. Now the Greed Over People party, you know the hypocrites who always spew the stuff about accountability, well yesterday they blocked a Bill in the Senate to hold BP ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALL DAMAGES. This is the third time the Greed Over People party blocked the Bill. Seems like the Greed Over People, the small Government, no Taxes hypocrites want American Tax Payers to pay for the majority of the cleanup. A Senator from Oklahoma blocked the Bill for a second time. He spewed out some nonsense that holding Oil Companies accountable, for all the damages they may create, would drive the small Oil Producer out of business. What don’t they know or understand about the principles of insurance in Oklahoma; and what small Oil Producer is he referring to, Shell? What a bunch of stuff. Oklahoma may be OK, but not that Senator. I bet he gets a nice campaign gift from BP during his next election cycle. Current US law limits BP responsibility to 75 million. The total cost of all this will probably be 100’s of billions, if not trillions. These estimated do not include the lost of animal and plant life. Finally we get to BP. Yepper, a few days ago the CEO actually stated that the Oil leaking out in the Gulf is ‘insignificant’. After little over one month, this insignificant amount of Oil spans an area larger than most New England states. It also seems like BP lied about the actual amount of oil ‘leaking’. Now why am I not surprised? BP initially reported 1,000 barrels per day. It seems like the actual amount is between 12,000 to 20,000 BARRELs PER DAY. The 12-20 are government figures so I would bet two dozen sheep that the actual amount is more like 30,000 BARRELs PER DAY. Anyone with half a brain can figure it out. The government representatives have estimated that 500,000 BARRELs have ‘leaked’ out so far. There have been 33 days of this stuff. 500,000/33 = 15,000 BARRELS PER DAY. So what, some days leak more than others? Or what, more Well pressure on every third day? I don’t think so. And that our government at work.…sssshhhezz… Now we get to BP ‘solutions’. They are spaying a very, very toxic brew of chemicals to push the oil below the surface of the water. That way the oil can be nicely deposited on the floor of the ocean. You know out of sight out of mind. The stuff they are spraying is so toxic England has banned its use….but I'm sure some argue that the Brits have banned Mikey Savage so what do they know? While the oil is ‘floating’, it can be recovered; but it’s almost impossible to reclaim on the bottom on the ocean’s floor. Besides, not much live on the bottom of the ocean right? BP second ‘solution’ is ‘the mud in the hole stuff’. Now any sheep that thinks that will work, well they really must be drinking the Kool-Aid, or have their head so far up ... they cannot see the light of day. After ‘the mud in the hole stuff’ fails BP will implement ’the throw stuff into the hole stuff’. I wish I was, but I’m not making this stuff up! That ‘solution’ will be just as successful as the prior. All one has to do is open a history book and read about the last time this happen in the gulf. Turn to the major United States screw-ups during the 70’s section. It should be just after the chapters about Vietnam. The only ‘possible’ way to stop this is by utilizing a Relief Well to remove the pressure, which means at least two more months this stuff. Let’s see, two more months equal another 1,000,000 BARRELs, if you believe the government’s underestimates, which I don’t. Total amount in the gulf will be at least 1,500,000 BARRELs. One last note, there are no guaranties that the Relief Well will stop the ‘leak’. There has never been one drilled at that depth on the floor of the ocean. I guess next year, the spring breakers in Florida will not need tanning lotion. They can just take a dip in the water and get the proper coating they require to avoid a naughty sunburn. I hate to state this, and no disrespects to the 11 individuals who died on the platform, but their deaths are the smallest part of this tragedy.

"A House energy panel investigation has found that the blowout preventer that failed to stop a huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico had a dead battery in its control pod, leaks in its hydraulic system, a "useless" test version of a key component and a cutting tool that wasn't strong enough to shear through steel joints in the well pipe and stop the flow of oil." Washington Post - 05/13/10 "BP also skipped a quality test of the cement around the pipe -- another buffer against gas -- despite what BP now says were signs of problems with the cement job and despite a warning from cement contractor Halliburton Co." "In an April 18 report to BP, Halliburton warned that if BP didn't use more centering devices, the well would likely have "a SEVERE gas flow problem." Still, BP decided to install fewer of the devices than Halliburton recommended -- six instead of 21." "The cement job was especially important on this well because of a BP design choice that some petroleum engineers call unusual. BP ran a single long pipe, made up of sections screwed together, all the way from the sea floor to the oil reservoir. Companies often use two pipes, one inside another, sealed together, with the smaller one sticking into the oil reservoir. With this system, if gas tries to get up the outside of the pipe, it has to break through not just cement but also the seal connecting the pipes. So the more typical design provides an extra level of protection, but also requires another long, expensive piece of pipe. 'I couldn't understand why they would run a long string,' meaning a single pipe, said David Pursell, a petroleum engineer and managing director of Tudor, Pickering, Holt, an energy-focused investment bank. Oil major Royal Dutch Shell PLC, in a letter to the MMS, said it "generally does not" use a single pipe." Wall Street Journal 5/27/2010 In addition: Plaintiff Attorney Greenwald stated "the Deepwater Horizon was inspected only six times in 2008 and missed 16 inspections since January 2005. She said the Mineral Mining Service (MMS) skipped about one-third of the required inspections in the 28 months before the April 20 explosion, and inspections that were done failed to mention repeated gas kicks. Greenwald said MMS reported three weeks before the explosion that the BOP was functioning properly." ... "had [Deepwater Horizon] too few centering devices and a single pipe instead of two concentric pipes sealed together, a measure that would have lessened the chance of a spill"

I could not understand why all the checks and failsafe devices and alarms had not gone off. I understood after the Piper Alfa disaster that a lot of safety and warning devices had been devoped and installed to make sure fires pressures and build up of gases are detected and quickly cut off and blocked. I could not understand it. Until it emerged yesterday that Transocean who were running the rig turned all the fire and warning alarms off and swicthed off all the failsafe deviced which would have sealed and capped the rig the minute a problem was detected. They did this so the men's sleep would not be disturbed. Disturb me baby Disturb me. Better awake and sleepy in off the rig and on a boat than dead in my bed. That's corporate manslaughter. I am British but you have my full permission and blessing to go for the twerps.
