Burning, Man?

The panel investigating the government's response to the Deepwater Horizon spill has found that there was pressure on the scientists from the government to low-ball their worst-case estimates.

'Cause you wouldn't want to have to hold BP accountable for the full amount, right? Or have the impact be so overwhelming that it knocked the 'drill, baby, drill' mantra off the table, yes?

Someone needs to be fired. Whatever you were protecting, whether it was the President from blame, or kickbacks from the oil industry, you went all in and came up a loser.

Heckuva job, there.

And for you nutjobs out there railing against socialism this and socialism that, we bring you the story of Gary Cranick, whose house burned down as firefighters watched ...

... because Cranick had not paid a $75 fire protection fee.

Really? Your conscience and sense of responsibility goes for the low price of $75? And where are these Christian values we keep hearing conservatives wail about?

Police and fire services are socialized so as to provide all citizens with the same level of protection.

The stupidity of the situation becomes even clearer when we learn that the firefighters sprang into action once the fire spread to a neighboring home.

How about fighting the fire in the first place, and then, perhaps, it wouldn't have spread at all?
