I know you don’t like when I say this, but you people living in Florida through Louisiana (and points in between) are not exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer. As it were.
(I said it that way because I figure you won’t understand what I mean.)
I think it’s funny that I enraged people with my comments on Florida being full of stupid people the other day. And I explained why I said those things (click here), but none of you managed to click on the link (click here) to understand the bigger picture. Apparently, you are even less smart than I was giving you credit for. (click here)
At this point, I should probably point out the obvious because it may … well, it may not be obvious to you.
You live in low lying country. Sea level rise is far more of a threat to all of you than to any of us. One of your main industries is tourism, and your tax base is increasingly based on retiree movements. Both of these are related to there being a good environment that is protected and secure.
So, and this is especially for you, Floridians, the anti-global warming environmental candidate runs for office, and instead of voting for him, you vote for the oilman Bush.
Yes, yes, yes, I heard you when you whined that fifty percent of Floridians voted for Bush. Sorry, but the fact is, plain and simple, IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THAT CLOSE!!!! Low lying land reliant on a clean environment. Gore should have won by a landslide.
Anyway, the latest news is infuriating and proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the voting populous of the Gulf States put together would not be able to think their way out of a paper bag.
All of the gulf states have been provided with large numbers of national guard troops to help in the cleanup.
All of the gulf states have, apparently, decided to interfere with the cleanup for political reasons and not accept this important help.
Which. Is. Being. Paid. For. By. BP.
Hey, it is not just your gulf. Stop fucking with it. Make your lame governors govern. And, next election, throw them out. Grow balls. Grow brains. Take your minds off your guns and your gods and your cheap-ass beer and start being real citizens. The rest of the country wants its shrimp and you are ruining it for everybody.
Oh, the story is here. Read it, and weep. Because this really should make you cry.
