  •  Its about as bad as the Weather Channel's ... (18+ / 0-)

    reporting about the oil and hurricanes. When asked "Will it rain on my house?" they wrote something to the affect of: "No, it will not rain oil. Unless you are close to the shore then you may notice some oil on trees and such."

    They then compared it to being close to the ocean and having sea spray on you, but instead of salt water it will be oil. After that, they went on to tell us that there is no cause for worry because the amount of oil wouldn't be worse than normal.

    WTF?

    If there were to be a sheen of oil on my house, car, and everything I'd call that raining oil FFS.

    To whom it may concern: I am an American citizen. Not an American consumer. I am a human being, not a variable in the capitalist system.
