Here’s a pro-tip, if you’re going to write a blog post titled “OH Sen. Brown’s Dimwitted Remarks Over Oil Spill,” then at least find something dim witted about Senator Brown’s remarks.
Instead, “One Oar in the Water” says in response:
Maybe we should explore the effects of big government on the environment and energy industry? Maybe we should explore the lack of oversight Congress failed to exhibit all these years over the energy industry?
These are just a few questions Senator Brown might want to ask, but surely the oil spill in the gulf points to too much government in Washington. (emphasis added.)
So we should explore the role of the lack of federal oversight had in the leak because it’s clear that the oil spill shows that there’s too much government in Washington?
In other news, how does a national capital have too much government? Seriously. It’s the capital to the nation. By definition, isn’t it going to have a lot of government?
So should we halve the Congress? Close the Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, Korea, WWII, Vietnam Memorials? Shutter the Smithsonian? Turn the Pentagon into an IKEA store?
If you’re going to hold up BP’s billowing oil plumes at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico as a symbol of the superiority of conservatism, then don’t concede that its the result of a lack of federal oversight. Either that, or educate yourself on what conservatism is because you obviously are a confused individual.
(Unless, of course, you, as a conservative, actually believe the oil spill is somehow a good thing because it gets rid of all those pesky animals that are used to justify all those burdensome environmental regulations.)
I’ll give him credit, never has a blog more lived up to its name…
