Republicans In Bed With Big Oil!

It came as no surprise when Republicans such as Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal blamed President Obama for the oil spill and the supposedly slow response of the federal government.
Rick Perry also chimed in, he who has hung his hat on the star of "states rights."
As usual the facts don't matter to these political animals.
Witness the performance of the Minerals Management Service, a section of the Interior Department.
During the Bush years this agency was stacked with industry insiders and instead of regulating they pursued orgiastic sex and booze parties put on by oil companies and were lavished with gifts from those they are supposed to regulate.
And it was Dick Cheney's old company, Haliburton, that was involved in conducting the down hole procedure when the blowout occurred.
All of a sudden those who opposed federal regulations of any sort now expect the federal government to step in and rescue and industry that makes trillions of dollars and has never developed techniques or technology for cleaning up oil spills beyond the flimsy booms and inadequate skimmers.

Joe Lieberman Must Hate American Values

Click on pic for larger image
Senator Joseph Lieberman has a proposal that would do more damage to American values than the terrorists could ever hope to do.
Lieberman has proposed that any American charged with terrorism should be stripped of his U.S. citizenship by the State Department. He ignores the requirements of the constitution providing for the rights of the accused and of the due process of law.
Much like the so-called 'Patriot Act' of the Bush administration, the torture of terror suspects, holding suspects for years with no trials or hearings and the practice of rendition this proposal goes against the grain of what it is to be American.
Do we let our fear of terrorism turn us into the kind of country which no longer believes in its own stated principles of law and government?
