Jindal and Louisiana send message to Washington!

“We don’t want a BP check.  We don’t want an unemployment check.  We want to go back to work.” —- Bobby Jindal

Lift the Moratorium Rally

LAFAYETTE — Thousands attended a rally Wednesday in Lafayette aimed at persuading President Barack Obama’s administration to lift the federal offshore drilling moratorium, which officials said could further endanger the state through the loss of tens of thousands of jobs.

About 11,000 people attended the “Rally for Economic Survival” at the Cajundome and thousands more watched online.

…..

Gov. Bobby Jindal was one of 12 speakers at the roughly two-hour event and pleaded with Obama to allow people to go to work.

The rally was in opposition to the Obama administration’s ongoing efforts to temporarily block deep-water drilling following the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion.

“We don’t want a BP check. We don’t want an unemployment check. We want to go back to work,” the governor said.

You don’t ban cars when there’s a car accident.  You don’t take the planes out of the sky when there’s an air disaster.  You don’t stop mining for coal when there’s a mining catastrophe.  Is there any common sense in Washington, D. C.?

Thank you, BP workers, thank you very much

Good News.  The well is capped.

Obama just spoke and is now taking credit.

What a jerk.

Now that BP has capped the well, it’s all “we” and “us” and not a word of thanks to BP for all the work they have done.  As long as the news was all bad, it was totally about BP.

BP is made up of men and women who  have been up day and night trying to solve this problem.  So regardless of the cause of this disaster, they deserved at least a little teeny tiny thank you from the president.

So I’ll say it:  Thank you, all you workers who have been steadily laboring now for about 3 months to come up with a solution and actually have been able to stop the oil.  You have my respect and gratitude.  I hope all goes well from here on out.

Because “we,” and “us” haven’t done a damn thing.  Not one damn thing.
