Oil drillers in the Gulf of Mexico as the residual impact of Obama’s recently lifted moratorium on deepwater drilling bites harder and the new safety regulations impact on shallow water drillers who cannot get permits to drill without passing arduous safety checks.
I was impressed by a comment left on a site discussing the situation-
This effort at destroying the American econ is by design. It frustrates me when I hear people try to say the leftist are just “stupid and don’t understand the damage…” they do understand. Just do a little research and find out who these people are..Carol Browner, Lisa Jackson, Sunstein et al. They have a plan and the idea of American exceptionalism is not part of it.
For years now we have heard from the Left how America is a terrible place and a corrupt idea and needs to be diminished so that the rest of the world can rise up (assumption being that America is holding down the rest of the world through oppression and theft). Just like what we should have done with Bin-Laden, pay attention to what they say because they mean it. Back in the late nineties Sec. of State Madlin Albright gave a speech in which she stated in effect “…we don’t want to be the world’s lone super power..”.
Well… welcome to the implementation of that idea, it is no mistake that permits are not being issued. It is no mistake that Texas, one of the few states that is weathering the recession better than most, is under assault by the EPA . It is no mistake that the Fed is printing money like there is no tomorrow. It is no mistake that at every turn private industry is being attacked in this country by regulation, taxes, fees, unions, environmentalis t and Leftist politicians..they have told us over and over that is what they are going to do..and guess what boys and girls they are doing just that.
