    I am really tired of the destruction civilization causes.  We need to reduce our consumption, not find more places to destroy.  If we don't do this voluntarily, nature will do it for us.

    Regarding the wonders of free market capitalism, I head the a BP spokesman this morning on the news when asked why this well did not have the safety valves that are used in Norwegan and Brazilian off-shore wells.  He said that the company was in compliance with all US regulations.  I'm sure that is true.  But we know our regulations never turn out to be sufficient when compared to other enlightened, more regulated countries.  

    I am shocked <snark>.  America just keeps setting bad examples all the time these days.  

    2.5 trillion dollars have been "borrowed" since the [SS] system was "reformed" in the 80s and they simply don't want to pay it back. - dKos Blogger -
