Motion Sickness From Washington

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Common sense and self-preservation have been turned upside down and backwards by the Destructionists in Washington. The reason is simple---dunces enamored by promises for undefined ‘change’ have voted liberal extremists into power for the first time in American history. Every week the list of idiotic decisions by the current Administration gets longer. Practical solutions to problems are replaced by misguided ideology which not only compounds current problems, but creates new ones. Unfortunately for us, that gives them plenty of opportunities to ‘let no crisis go to waste’ (Rahm Emanuel).

Americans are fed up with crises nurtured by the Obama Administration. Every week we hopscotch from one disaster to another digging America into a deeper hole on the global landscape. A few weeks ago Mr. Obama hosted Mexico’s president who was allowed to publicly condemn enforcement of our Federal laws by Arizona. This was quickly followed by an apology to China, a leader in human rights violations, for the ‘inhumane’ Arizona law which protects citizens from invasion by illegals. The Obama Administration’s response to Arizona was to send lawyers from the Justice Dept and to race-bait the populace.

Almost simultaneously, we learn the Dutch, one of several nations worldwide who possess technology to clean up massive oil spills, were turned away by the Obama Administration on the 3rd day after the BP rig exploded. The Dutch were told they were not needed. I have witnessed numerous interviews of CEOs and inventors who have methods of skimming vast quantities of oil from the sea, but each one notes lack of response by the Administration to their overtures.

Instead, the Administration sends lawyers to investigate for possible criminal charges against BP. Even worse, the liberal extremists who run the circus react by enacting a moratorium on drilling activity, despite recommendations to the contrary by industry advisors, ignoring the dire consequences to the fragile American economy which will result along with the greater risk inherent in shutting down active drilling ops.

What is missing here is not the entrepreneurial input which has always made America a world leader for dealing with catastrophic events, but rather the lack of receptivity by our rogue government for practical private-sector solutions.

We all recognize that the BP rig explosion is a serious incident. And most of us know that accidents will happen. This was the first time a rig explosion of this magnitude has occurred despite many decades of offshore drilling. But the opportunistic Left just this week gave the EPA broad powers to regulate environmental ‘pollutants’, heretofore a power delegated only to Congress.

This is their backdoor approach to cap and trade, a product of the Left’s ideology which replaces practical common sense energy solutions such as drilling in ANWR (Alaska) as well as further development of offshore drilling while nuclear energy and oil shale resources are developed.

How ironic that this ‘clean green energy’ Administration run by lunatics will go down in history as ignoring well-known practical solutions to cleaning up the BP spill, thus resulting in the biggest environmental catastrophe ever, while simultaneously weakening America’s security by blocking time-efficient development of energy self-sufficiency.

Did you vote for them?


Wild Thing's comment........

Excellent write up. I really believe Obama wants this to fail and then take over the drilling and ban it.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I see that suv has Texas plates.

I really wish obama would take even more vacations. The less he does as president the less harm he can do. He and his administration are purely East German in the way they misfunction. They can bring on socialist ideas, but they can't really handle crisis except to use them politically. We are so screwed.

What a great piece by Dr. Bates. He didn't miss a point.

The most frightening thing is, that we have 2 1/2 more years of this idiocy.

The only saving grace will be if the voters through out this Nation, turn out the present incumbents, and elect representatives that will listen to the people, instead of following the the President's agenda, like a bunch of Lemming.

Let us pray that this will happen, otherwise the damage may well be unreparable.

I guess not only the Dutch came to help but some other countries offered help. They were all turned away because they did NOT have the proper UNION credentiala, and ocrapo's sugar-daddy wouldn't support that. Thats the trouble of being bought and sold by the Unions, they own you.
