the war of 2010

the OIL war of 2010

Look here BP, dig deep into the history books, stop at about 196 years back in 1814 and recall what we did to you back then. Yeah that’s right, the natives of South Louisiana, led by Andrew Jackson in the Battle of New Orleans, kicked your fucking ass. Nevermind that the War of 1812 was over, we still did not know yet and we proceeded to rack up over 2,000 British casualties: 278 dead including three senior generals Pakenham, Gibbs, and Major General Keane, 1186 wounded, and 484 captured or missing.

So don’t think that you are safe down here Tony Hayward. That must be why you are too much of a fucking pussy to hold your press conferences in New Orleans, choosing bum-fuck Robert, Louisiana and Houston, Texas as your points-of-communication. Come on and drive down Louisiana Hwy. 23, Hwy. 46 or perhaps Louisiana Hwy 45, and you’ll find plenty of pissed off people willing to take you to task and hold you to the fire, literally.

Here are some Hayward quips:

“The gulf oil spill is relatively tiny” Oh yeah? Who the hell do you think we are, a buncha dimwits? We have been railing since practically day #1 that this spill was monumental, yet you fools chose to downplay the impact – well see where it has gotten you?

“You can get shrimp from anywhere in the world, not just the gulf”

Well its already beginning to drive up seafood prices, so yes you can get it elsewhere you just might not be able to afford it.

Hayward must be taking his cues from the fat fuck next door

“We don’t wash our face in it, but it doesn’t stop us from jumping off the boat to ski. Come on down here and play golf, enjoy the beach, catch a fish and pay a little sales tax while you’re here.”

Well guess what, when the slimy orange glop begins to wash ashore in Biloxi and Gulfport, do you think people are gonna be able to ski, swim or fish in that mess? If you would take your head out of your ass and realize without your clean water and white sand beaches you ain’t gonna be hearing no cash registers ringing up sales taxes anymore.

And what about the governor’s hand wringing? Jindal is waiting for permission to stave off the oil? Aren’t you a Republican, fighting tooth and nail that you want to be free of federal management, to uphold the provenance of state before country? Then kick the goddamn Coast Guard off the shores and marshes, employ the out of work fishermen and hunters, who are probably armed to the teeth mind you, and CLEAN UP THIS MESS!!!!!

One last note – don’t forget dah-ling Tony, the gulf stream eventually passes right by your front door, so go ahead and let it spill, keep it going up to those 300 million barrels or more that are projected to come out of those holes if that top kill fails, and you just might be answering to a mutiny in your backyard.
