The passing off of a Hot Potato

I have read The Confluence and following post from Danikat, she is such an awesome contributer…but anyway, as I was reading her post Playing Politics with the Spill « The Confluence about the spill it got me thinking.

I went to the FEMA site, this is the “Federal Emergency Management Agency”…as if this was not a “Federal Emergency.” Well what do I find there but a small link to “Oil Spill Guidance” stating that “If you have been affected by the oil spill go to www.disasterassistance.gov for guidance.”  Which by the way will take you to a site with a picture of a boat and one of those oil booms…and a link to a page that states “File a claim with BP” so this is just another site that will pass the affected “small people” over to yet another site… the BP website with a statement…

BP deeply regrets the spill that has occurred in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Incident. BP takes full responsibility for responding to the Deepwater Horizon Incident

There is  such a hot potato thing going on with this spill. All the people who are supposed to be in charge just seem to be passing the shit off…and don’t want to touch this catastrophe with a 50 foot pool! Is it for legal reasons? I mean if they start actually doing the cleanup and taking the initiative and do something,  and by they I mean the local, state and federal governments, does this take the legal responsibility off of BP?

I just don’t get it…and it really pisses me off!

Until Later,

    One of the first things we were taught in my survey of politics course when I was Junior in college, was the importance of pens in Washington D.C.  LBJ made them a big deal, when signing legislation…he would sign his name…each letter with a different pen, and then give this special pens out to those […]
  • Sunday Reads: London….This is London 
    The above tweet found this morning…. I’m not in the mindset to come up with the words today. In fact, I doubt that my brain can wrap itself around any type of news that poured out of London late last night. When I heard the sirens on the television, my parents were watching live coverage, […]
