The Blogosphere has been waiting with bated breath for me to weigh in on the subject of the oil spill. Wait no more, my lovelies.
Tell me again when unrestricted laissez-faire Capitalism was declared in this country? The bureaucrats that regulate every minute detail of every business in this country seem to know less about disaster-prevention than the huge corporations they oversee. The only sure-fire way to avoid any possible disaster would be to ban all business activity. On the way to that ultimate safety, we may someday pass up North Korea and Iran, two examples of environmental paradise.
Bottom line: Whenever politicians are given power over people, expect rich people to defend themselves by bribing the politicians. So how's that Government-by-the-people thing working for ya?
