Thousands of feet of “superior” boom are available in Maine, but not being used in the Gulf.
A moratorium on drilling was ordered on the recommendation of scientists, who actually recommended no such thing.
A Congressman assault citizens on the street. Not only are no charges pressed, not only does he not resign, but blame-makers swoop in to attack . . . the citizens.
Europe’s busting up, the euro’s possibly breaking up, the area’s drowning in debt — hey, let’s add more government debt and a magic windmill program for ourselves!
Israel is not allowed to actively defend itself (i.e., attack the forces attacking it), nor to passively defend itself (enforce a blockade and guard its borders with a wall and checkpoints) without being accused of apartheid, genocidal tendencies, blood-drinking of innocent children, etc. Everyone’s okay with this except us, and the US is slipping towards “meh” neutrality.
Elton John sings for Rush Limbaugh’s wedding. This is a good occasion to mention how racist, homophobic, sexist, evil etc. Rush Limbaugh is.
Elton John is barred from singing in Egypt because of his beliefs and his behaviors. “Meh.”
Social Security’s imploding. ObamaCare’s a disaster in the making. “Meh.”
