Here's One That Will Make your Blood Boil!

Those industrious folks from the Netherlands, who created their own homelands out of seawater, have offered to provide ships, equipment, and expertise to help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf. As a country built on the sea, these folks know a thing or two about water. And as the home of Royal Dutch Shell, they also know a thing or two about oil. They offered to send a flotilla of skimming ships and a navy of people who know how to use the technology to skim the oil from the Gulf, separate the oil from seawater, and return the clean water back to the ocean.

But guess what Mr. Everything's Cool told them: "Thanks, but no thanks! We'll hold BP accountable for this!" And guess what the brain trust at BP told them: "Thanks, little chap, but we've got things under control!"

So meanwhile, as God knows how many millions of gallons of oil are gushing into the water, ships that can process 5 million gallons of seawater per day, removing 20,000 tons of sludge at the same time, sit idle in the Netherlands.

Now mind you: this offer didn't come yesterday! This offer came 3 days after the explosion! All this time, those ships could have been processing the water and keeping the spill to a controllable mass!

Sure, there are some legal concerns with the Jones Act- but I'm pretty sure the Commander in Chief could find at least a temporary solution to allow these foreign ships to operate in American waters. And cheap-ass BP didn't even ASK the price- the just assumed they'd be charged out the ass for it!

God DAMN this shit just pisses me off more and more every day!!!!

Girl, I'm not even going there! These dump assholes have no clue what there doing. I'm so hot over this whole thing, I just don't know what to do. I'm tired of being in a sour mood over this. And the studity just continues.
