LET’S KEEP AN EYE ON THE OIL GUYS AND THE COAL GUYS! IT’S PATRIOTIC AND IT’S THE ONLY WAY WE AVOID MORE HORRIBLE CATASTROPHES!

Rand Paul said it was unpatriotic for the Obama administration to say it was going to keep the boot on BP till they finish the horrible mess that they started. Is Rand furreal? I don’t see on what planet that would even be mildly misconstrued as unpatriotic!

For one thing, BP stands for BRITISH Petroleum. Yeah, wrong country, dope!

For another, what’s wrong with defending the beauty that makes our country great? Does Rand want all those birds to die so that they’ll stop flying around annoying his teaparty friends who hate seeing anything else in the sky except the black smoke belching into it from the industries that he promotes?

And speaking of black smoke…and black lung, I heard the poor man who was one of the survivors of the horrible coal mining disaster testifying today that the Massey owners told him if he complained about any of the things they were doing wrong he’d be fired. You could hear in his voice the amount of dust and minerals he’d accumulated. The poor guy. To see his friends die because the company operated in such a terrible-BP-sort-of way.

Let’s keep the boot to all these idiots that believe they are above the law. That they are above the forces of nature that will bite us in the ass if we don’t watch out! Birds are dying, sea life is dying, the Gulf is dying because of a horrible foreign oil company doing the most damaging thing to our beautiful ecosystems. We threw tea into the Boston harbor to get rid of the British. Oil trumps tea, especially the millions of gallons that have burbled up in the past couple of weeks. In the end, though, it’s a war between us and the big corporations that don’t care about us.

The founding fathers knew what was patriotic. Some opportunistic politician with a name like “rand” has no clue.
