Why the labelling?
Because it was a very liberal thing to say.
It really severs no purpose other than to vent.
Identification as well.
It seems as if no one knows what the proper role of government is. First of all, we people are supposed to be the government, but that doesn't seem the case today.
It hasn't been the case for a long time.
But I was digressing. I don't see how a natural event can be compared with a man-made catastrophe. We can't set rules against preventing natural events.
Kind of hard to set rules to prevent man made events as well. You can set punishments, but rules mean nothing when you have a corrupt political system such as ours.
This thing being out in the gulf like this, and having an impact on several states puts it right in the lap of the federal government to help in the cleanup.
I think that the gulf states should be the one's to receive the mineral rights of these offshore wells, an even split. And if I were them, I'd consider setting up a fund the money from the mineral rights would go directly into to help pay for these situations.
