  •  Thank you, Lorinda Pike, for all you do and (5+ / 0-)

    for who you are.

    I am the latest of them all because I kept forgetting it was Sunday.

    This bit of govt. gasbaggery makes me want to unplug my nostrils at Ken Salazar (among many others):

    As a condition of winning new permits to drill in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico, the Interior Department now requires oil companies to prove they have access to spill-containment equipment, built to withstand even worst-case blowout scenarios.

    What does "have access to" mean? How can anything be built to "withstand even worst-case scenarios" when we haven't given drillers enough opportunity to show us what a worst-case scenario is? This is common, garden-variety bullshit, in other words, government-speak.

    •  And corporate-speak also... (5+ / 0-)

      but with most of the politicos bought and paid for, corporate-speak and government-speak are virtually one and the same.

      Benefits no one but the Overlords.

      (but I'm glad you're here, urso.)   :-)
