Hubbie and i have had numerous interesting arguments over this.
I vote for stupid, he votes for conspiracy.
I vote for coverup, he votes for financial benefit to someone (Probably George Soros, who has a big interest in Petrolio Brazilio- PBR- traded on the NYSE) Interestingly enough, the deep water rigs will move to brazil, Brazil has much better oversight on the rigs and require much stiffer safety standards than what the Obama administration and prior presidents required.
I vote for abysmally ignorant and arrogant, he votes for a far reaching conspiracy.
I vote for incompetence and decadence, he votes for a carefully designed plan.
Maybe it's some of both, who knows.
I think that arrogance & eliteism will be the downfall of our current president, hubbie thinks things will get so bad that we will welcome a dictatorship.
It is hard to make any sense of what is happening.
Best case is like the Gulf full of red tide, we are still screwed.
There are plenty of people in the world who are our enemies, and who think that we deserve it, even on this type of forum, despite the fact the most victimized populations will be small childern, the elderly, pregnant women and wildlife.
Maybe it isn't an accident after all.
You never will know for sure, I know I will not ever learn the truth.
