What’s on your mind today?

This guy has as good a chance of figuring out how to stop the BP leak as they do.

If you are anything like me, you are happy that it is Thursday, because that means tomorrow is Friday.

I’ve been extra-busy with other stuff and haven’t been able to post any updates in a while, so I figured I’ll throw a few things out there for discussion today and see what’s on your mind.

– The BP leak has been capped but continues to gush oil into the Gulf of Mexico.  Meanwhile, their stock is sliding and some reports say bankruptcy for the company could be just weeks away. A mess in every way.

– Even after 6 seasons, “The Deadliest Catch” is still one of my favorite shows.  Not looking forward to the episodes where they lose Phil Harris…he is my favorite.

– A show you may want to check out, even if you don’t agree with their method or politics, is “Whale Wars”.  It airs on Animal Planet Friday nights.  It has become another “must watch” in our house.

– I don’t know if you’ve been outside or not, but it is hot.

Check out this footage from CCTV in the Hatian Presidential Palace during the earthquake in January…wow.

Apparently BP doesn’t like cameras.  Do they actually OWN the beaches now?

    I kept waiting for the “hassel”. Looked pretty harmless to me.

    I’d like to try to quote someone here. This should be close:

    “Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.” (Jim Quinn of Quinn and Rose on XM 158 6-9 AM, M-F).

    This quote comes to mind as I read about the BP disaster. Liberalism—in the name of “saving the planet”—forced these companies to drill in places they’d not rather drill. Had this occured in ANWR, or nearer the shore in shallow waters, it’d have been fixed by now.

    That quote applies in just about every situation I can think of. From zoning laws to improving education to the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacle.

    I hope people don’t blame President Obama for all thius—but put it where it belongs—the ideology that is liberalism.
