"The rich are not paying their fair share in
any nation that is facing these kinds of employment issues. Brazil has the highest tax-to-GDP rate
in the Western Hemisphere and guess what – they're growing like crazy. And the rich are getting richer, but
they're pulling people out of poverty. There is a certain formula there that used to work for us, until we
abandoned it, to our regret in my opinion."

I'm just hoping that after the worst oil disaster
in history that if it's really going to be bad that it is bad enough
to shut up the "Drill Baby Drill" crown and those
who keep saying that we don't need government regulation.
Without regulating these companies the Taxpayer's
have to pick up the cost of these corporate mistakes.
They want to play "capitalist" and "free market"
but when they fail we have to bail them out. I wonder if the
Tea Party thinks that the taxpayer should bail
out the oil companies in the name of corporate freedom?
We deregulated the electric companies and had
rolling blackouts. We deregulated the Savings and Loans in the
1980s and they collapsed and had to have a taxpayer
bailout. Then we deregulated the banks and the securities
and we had the taxpayer bailout of 2008. We didn't
regulate the mines enough and miners die in explosions.
Now the oil companies have liability caps which
means that someone else has to pay for their mistakes.
Where were the government regulators?
They were literally downloading porn, doing drugs,
and having sex with corporate lobbyists.
Our nation is a nation of people, but corporations.
It's We the People. We have to vote out the politicians
who put the companies who bribe them first before
the interests of the common good of the humans they are
supposed to represent. Maybe finally this latest
disaster will be bad enough to shut up even Rand Paul and
Sarah Palin who seem to think that foreign oil
companies have superior rights to the American public.
I think we should make off-shore drilling illegal.
Did we know the oil spills could be this bad?
What if a second and a third well explodes?
BP obviously has no clue of how to stop this massive spill so why the hell do we give them permits to drill that deep?
We may have lost the Gulf of Mexico for our lifetime.
Do we want to gamble with the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, too?
Ands why the hell are we still using oil?
Why doesn't Obama lead us into solar and wind and whatever else works?
I wish we had a president who was awake and responsive.
"Fall to your knees and thank God for Fox News.

Around 1960-1963 I was 6 yrs old and living in
a Chicago Suburb (Downers Grove).
I went to a Three Stooges Live Show in Chi-town.
I can still picture the circus tent they performed under.
When the show ended they left the stage and walked
out through the crowd. I was a very young child and
a giant fan, Moe walked directly towards me and
shook my hand. I'm 55 and can still see it like it was yesterday.

Also lucky enough to see the Beatles during their
1st American Tour in 1964 in Chicago.

her birthday my parents got tickets, I was "forced" to attend.

God didn't invent the internal combustion engine.
That was Gottlieb Daimler.
God also didn't invent offshore drilling. The

But God did make the sun to shine and the wind

and there was light. God saw that the light was good...
God made two great lights—the greater light to
govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night."

the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man,
he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the
high places of the earth— the LORD God Almighty is his name."
"The Florida Keys, third longest barrier reef
in the world, is a dead zone. Ninety percent of the big fish, the tuna, the sharks, and other things,
are already gone in the oceans. There's a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico every summer the size of New Jersey,
where there's not enough oxygen for things to live. So it's not a question
of 'Can the oceans take any more?' The
oceans can't take any more. They couldn't take any more fifty years ago. The question is, when are we going
to stop?" -- Phillippe Cousteau Jr.,

If anyone deserves some time off now and then,
it would be you.
I do miss your page when you’re away, but I understand
that when you are out, your entire staff is away as well.
BTW: I really like the nature photos you’ve been
I like the wierdities and history pics too.
Makes great wallpaper!

Tell anyone who is complaining about you taking
time off to stick it.
I am a long time reader and sure, I love it when
there is a new Bartcop page everyday
but I certainly understand that you are human
and need a break too.
I am not a subscriber and I would give you some
money if I could, so I really appreciate
all of the great free content you provide. Its
amazing how much people bitch when they don't
think they are getting enough free stuff. Maybe
us lefties are just walking around with our hand out?
Although, I do get worried about you, with your
health problems and all,
when there isn't an update for a few days. I
hope all is well in that department.
