As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

5 Oil Tankers Could Have Siphoned Oil Off Gulf Waters

In 1990 5 super oil tankers were dispatched in the waters of Saudi Arabia to siphon off an, up until now, unpublished oil spill even bigger than that now off the shores of the U.S. They siphoned off the oil with some sea water to prevent what you now see happening to our coastal waters. The question right now just before the shirt hits the fan is; After several weeks now, why hasn't the same thing been done here in our own country, on our own shores? I don't think any answer to that will be good enough. That competing oil companies were not willing to use their tankers to help with this will not be good enough. That the government, in surely knowing what happened in Saudi Arabia, did not compel this to happen here cannot have a good enough excuse. Oil tankers could have been used to siphon oil off gulf waters and possibly have prevented the catastrophic environmental disaster occuring right now. This from former president of Shell Oil, John Hofmeister. And now this begs the question; why is BP sitting on this strategy after being fully informed. Why is BP sitting on this strategy as oil fully drenches the shores destroying nearly every bit of wildlife it touches. Why are not other oil companies offering their tankers to help suck up the oil. Idiots, incompetents. If I had been running my life the way corporations and governments have been running this plutonomy of a country the last ten years I would have been homeless and destitute a long time ago. What a great job America. You let 'em take away your middle class, you let 'em siphon off your wealth to make the rich richer and you keep falling for their same irresponsible rightwing self-centered ideology time and time again. Will you now see the difference between the "we are working against you ideology" and the "we are working together ideology". Are you ever going to take back your country,America?
