I thought I'd re-post this because there has been a very selective amnesia about who was actively backing Offshore drilling back before the disastrous oilspill in the Gulf of Mexico. The blame falls directly upon one Barack Obama, remember him? He is the man that reprehensibly flushed billions of dollars down the toilet as his first piece of business. Thereby effectively selling the children and grandchildren of present-day Americans into perpetual slavery to the debt which he has created. And not only was this incredibly reprehensible act not criticized, but the man is applauded and even imitated in other nations for doing so.
Americans need to adjust the rate at which they are using up the world's resources, across the board and drastically. And the last thing we need to worry about doing at this point is Saving the Rich.

Obama clears way for oil drilling off US coasts
By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writer 54 mins ago
WASHINGTON Reversing a ban on oil drilling off most U.S. shores, President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced an expansive new policy that would put oil and natural gas platforms in waters along the southern Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and part of Alaska [emph. added]. Speaking at Andrews air base outside Washington, Obama said, "This is not a decision that I've made lightly." He addressed the expected outcry from disappointed environmentalists by saying he had studied the issue for more than a year and concluded it was the right call given the nation's voracious thirst for energy and the need to produce jobs and keep American businesses competitive.

Obama Approves Re-Introduction of Institutionalized Whaling
In a move sure to further anger Conservationists and alienate the party he pretends to represent, President Barack Obama Announced the revival of harvesting whale-oil by professional whalers. "It's them or us, and I know where we all stand on that!" said Obama from the Oval Office. "Whales, porpoises, dolphins, seals, fuel oil; it's all the same to me" "We've got a historical precident for sucking the resources of this planet dry so it's going to be suck, suck, suck, until we can't suck any more out of the tired old world"
In a later program, Obama began questioning members of Congress about the economic feasibilty of instituting cannibalism, to feed the upper class. "There's a lot of edible protein on your average lower-class ten-year-old and it's all going to waste" he is reported to have said to a fellow Democrat.
