Not only has Obama and his Democratic federal government done absolutely jack shit over the oil spill in the Gulf (apart from pointing the finger of blame in between endless White House parties and rounds of golf), but this latest news, coming after the Coast Guard stopped skimmers from sucking up oil, indicates that the administration is actively and deliberately preventing anyone else from minimizing or mitigating the disaster in the Gulf. Just as they have no intention of addressing the problems of illegal aliens without being allowed to turn millions of them into Democratic voters (i.e. “amnesty”), they also have no intention of allowing this crisis in the Gulf to go away without using it to push Cap And Trade and a host of other unpopular, unwanted, and unconstitutional schemes which otherwise would never see the light of day. Anyway, the latest travesty?
The federal government is shutting down the dredging that was being done to create protective sand berms in the Gulf of Mexico. The berms are meant to protect the Louisiana coastline from oil. But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department has concerns about where the dredging is being done.
The government has had over two months to address this issue; either by building up the berms themselves, or by granting Louisiana permission to do so – along with directions, if need be, as to where the dredging is and isn’t permitted. Clearly, however, the administration has no intention of allowing skimming or dredging at all; and the consequences for fish and other wildlife (whom the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department is allegedly meant to protect) are going to be devastating. But hey, at least those oil-soaked pelicans will be able to trade carbon credits!
