The big guy is sitting on a pile of money at BP and Deepwater Horizon, who owns the rig, and 11 little guys are dead. A gulf and ocean may be dead as well due to their abject negligence of any safety mechanisms known to mankind.
Mankind, what does that term mean. Apparently it means nothing in the Gulf disaster. Eleven people died. Their families are grieving but few care about that.
The big guys care about their corporate names and blaming others lest they be blamed for the havoc they wrought. Give a guy a bonus for putting duct tape on a valve, that’s my fictitious take on this whole disaster, not necessarily the truth as more information comes to light that gives deep water drilling a really bad reputation.
If a company doesn’t have ways of preventing AND sealing leaks don’t give them a permit. Who knows what we’ve done in space with satellites and besides littering the universe, what is the damage we’ve caused?
No one cares what we’ve put up in space because the big guy doesn’t live there and hasn’t sent the little guy there yet to test it, and we’ll all be sorry for that later and not because it’s falling down, it’s spying on all of us. And now there are white vans that can see everything in our car and even through our clothing and then someone will stop the little guy, violating 4th Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure.
The time of beloved Woodie Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” is over. If you do something to protect your Constitutional rights this “little guy” will learn that song for you, and take up the guitar again. This land is my land, too. It was made for you and me. Cheers, Dee
