Some of you may say this is all in my imagination but I can
not come up with a logical one other than this.

No matter what the hearings are producing.  No matter that
no one is seriously in jail yet.  No matter that bulldozers are covering up so much oil under the sand.
No matter that in spite of the horrific horrors of the Gulf
gusher, people are still allowed to swim.
We did not think it possible for torture to be allowed in this country.  We did not think it possible that

we would just attack a country that had not attacked us.
We could not believe that bankers and corporations were
making the middle class extinct.  We could not believe that
the poor would become just something everyone got used to.
We could not believe that BP lied and lied and lied from
day one.
Now we come to the Clean up efforts after shutting off the
well has failed so far.  There has been media blackouts.
There has been cherry picked coverage on the actual cleanup and people begging for more relief efforts.
In the middle of all of this we still have the right wing
We still have the right winged folks screaming Drill Baby Drill.  
I asked myself why?  Why would any sane person or even
somewhat business minded corporation want to Drill in the midst of a disaster such as the Gulf of Mexico during hurricane or any other season.  My mind wandered back to the days of Katrina when some on the right did not want to rebuild New Orleans?  Why?   I then thought, well, if you kill the Gulf, there is nothing to do but drill.  Just drill and drill and then there are no worries about the marine life or the heritage of the people.  There is no
other explanation.  An accident of biblical proportions could be turned into a major offshore drilling campaign for the oil companies.
It is ridiculous?  No.  Why am I so convinced?  Look at the lies we have been told.  There will probably be one
truth come out of all this and it will be this.  The Gulf is Dead and people need work so the Oil companies will have access to the Gulf for energy needs.  I cannot tell the good guys from the bad anymore other than the fact the agendas of big corporations have led us into unnecessary wars and kept us there.  The big contractors and the Cheney,Beck, Limbaugh and Palin folks are wanting this administration to fail at all costs.  Limbaugh screaming things like It is Obama's fault from everything from the Gulf to the Bailouts and economic downturn which clearly came from de regulation and the past administration.
People trying to prove the Obama Administration as un american and elitists and even non citizens.  
Why are we limited to access to the news on the gulf?
Yes, yes I know Anderson Cooper is down there and showing us how devistating it is but he isn't showing what everyday citizens showing up down there is showing.  Why?
If the American people had known we had been lied to about the so called mushroom cloud and WMD's they would have turned the country upside down.   Now it is all about the money.  What started as Money money money during the Bush years is  accepted as matter of fact and no one knows who is in control of that disaster down there.  Why?

Why has Bush himself not come out and made a statement about the gulf?  Why?
Who is guarding the guards?  I think the American people need a lot more answers and I think this government, no matter which aisle they sit on, needs to be protecting the
American people.  Are we still America?  What happened to people seeing a portion of the US die off and go eat supper and play a round of golf with the attitude of so what.  
I got the following links from City Data Forum and others who have provided on the ground boots.
People had better wake up and ask Why?  What is the real agenda of corporations in America?  Our government may not even know but they should be trying to get to the absolute bottom of this mess and throw people in jail.
Here are the links.  Call this crazy if you want but something smells fishy and it is definately not the fish.
They are dead.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
