I just don't get it when people complain about the horrendous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and then segway into a rant about how we have too much government regulation...


  1. Or not enough. I had a Republican friend try to make this argument around that point:

    "Ashamed for our country with regards to the Gulf. Why has BP not been put out of business yet? BP-it's irresponsible, unforgivable leadership need to pay- in tenfold. I'm disgusted with how our government intervenes on topics that in the grand scheme of things, lack this level of impact while essentially turning a blind eye."

    So now, although you didn't LIKE the intervention that you so criticized the other side for in the past, you're going to hold them against that standard for this particular instance and criticize them for not doing more. You just can't win! Defies logic.

  2. Nope, it makes no sense at all, does that.

  3. Also, wheeeeeeee, I can comment!
