I recently found out something astounding about myself: I have the gift of prophesy. I was so generally miffed at President Obama a few weeks ago when after his big Health Care Reform win, he painfully grafted an olive branch in the conservative fruit tree called the Republicans in Congress with his - we will drill for more oil along our coast lines, so we can save some primary elections - speech. Who gets elected is so much more important than the quality of our oceans, marine life, and our beach ecosystems anyway, don't you think. Just as long as we can be total and complete gas and energy hogs. Heaven forbid we sacrifice a little!
At the time I wondered, wouldn't it be ironic if one of these went down in such horrific glory as to show the t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e effects that one of these metal contraptions imploding does to our environment. Our economy. Our life.
Well, hell now it's happened.
Good bye Gulf of Mexico.
But hey, we have enough gas to drive our fat, overweight behinds around though.
Hope it was worth it.
Drill baby drill...
