All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

The BP oil spill off the Louisiana Coast is a twofer for the defenders of drilling our own oil and fighting the environmental menace, whose goal is too prevent progress through regressive taxes and environmental restrictions. The oil spill aptly demonstrates the quantity of oil off and on the shore of our country is far greater than anyone knows or can even imagine. Let's digress for a short lesson in biology: Oil is the by-product of all organic matter so simply put it can be seen as the ultimate waste product or a totally natural fuel for life. Secondly, if the well had been in more shallow water or on land it would have been easier to repair. Good guys two, environmentalists zero.
