dives into Gulf
Some 40 miles out into the Gulf Of Mexico, I
jump off the boat into the thickest patch of red oil Iíve ever seen.
I open my eyes and realize my mask is already
smeared. I canít see anything and weíre just five seconds into the dive.
Dropping beneath the surface the only thing I
see is oil. To the left, right, up and down ó it sits on top of the water
in giant pools, and hangs suspended 15 feet beneath
the surface in softball sized blobs. There is nothing alive under
the slick, although I see a dead jellyfish and
handful of small bait fish.
I make my way to the back of the boat unaware
of just how covered I am. I look a little like one of those poor
The oil is so thick and sticky, almost like a
cake batter. It does not wipe off. You have to scrape it off, in layers
finally get close to the skin. Then you pour
on some Dawn dishwashing soap and scrub. I think to myself: No fish, no
no turtle would ever be able to clean this off
of themselves. If any animal, any were to end up in this same puddle there
almost no way they could escape.
Yet our president remains a fan of off-shore
I could've sworn a Democrat won last time - how'd we end up with a Republican
I read - this is unconfirmed - that Obama agreed to break his promise
to us on off-shore drilling
to get the Rethugs to go along with his environmental plans, whatever
that's true, I'm going to say it for the first time: Obama's an idiot.
Once again, Obama is Charlie Brown and Boner and The Bitch are Lucy,
pulling the football back just as he's about to kick it.
The ONLY way you make a deal with those the sons of bitches is like
a drug deal.
When Boner and The Bitch sign binding papers that Obama's Green Plan
is a go,
THEN Obama comes out for off-shore drilling, but it looks like that
It looks like Obama gave them his money and they walked into a deserted
with it and then ran out the back door with his money while naive Barry
out front for his drugs which aren't coming.
How could someone from the streets, someone who admits
to doing a little cocaine, be so childishly naive?
