This is a serious thread so listen to everything I have to say before losing it.
I get a crack out of how we fucked up hard with the oil spill. It seems to me that the more oil that spurrs out of that pipe and the more failed containing attempts just make me laugh more. I actualy want to see them failing hard and not containing it for a while.
now heres the part where I calm you down.
I am concious that its a HUGE environmental impact and that it will eliminate several marine species and have second hand effects on even more. There is also the economical impact on fishing villages that are basicaly doomed and other buisnesses that will close down, leaving poor working class people jobless. This is far from a positive thing or one to laugh at.
What does create this humoristically macabre reaction is to see the government and our loose laws favoring oil companies become a laughing stock. The ordeal could have all been avoided if the multi billion dollar oil company had invested in a little safety measure. Instead the most profitable industry in the world continues to operate under little laws conserning safety for situations like these. we ride the dicks of the richest companies in the world so that they can save some bank and be happy. We have to re-evaluate our priorities and keep these money makers under check since they have only the american bill in mind and nothing else. Maybee this huge spill will wake people up and oil companies will have to suck up the costly responsibility of the dangers they bring instead of ignoring it for the greater good of the wealthy american.
and that ladies and gentlemen, is what grinds my gears today
