Clean Up Your Own Mess
Didn't Granny used to always say, "Clean up your own mess!" For that matter, Dad, Gramps, Mom, and every other adult when we were kids. What do I say to my kids? "Clean up your own mess!" I guess this is why I'm not sure why there is any confusion on who's responsibility it is to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. BP, also known as British Petroleum, made the mess, now they get to clean it up. If any government, the United States or Mexico helps, then British Patroleum should reimburse them fully.
I'll say this right now, I am not a big fan of President Obama, but his only job is to protect the United States from any adverse affects of the oil spill. Not to do the clean up for British Petroleum. The President needs to ensure that the people who made the mess clean up the mess. If he fails to do that, then he fails. Which I am seeing him do a lot. He did make a speech about it. He did take "responsibility" for making sure that everything is done to shut the spill down. What does that mean? How is HE going to taking responsibility? What is he doing? Maybe he needs a vacation to clear his head and think about it. Hopefully it is not the same plan he had for the banks! Oh no, get ready America, your tax dollars at work, bailing out people he campaigns against.
British Petroleum, which already sucked England dry of all natural resources,needs to clean up their own mess and the President of the United States needs to make them do it now or clean it up and send them the bill and maybe suspend any activities for them until the spill is dealt with.
Thus saith me.
