Odd, what makes someone believe another law will solve anything? The article states,
"…swiftly pass legislation to make sure such a tragedy never happens again."
The writer stipulates that legislation will prevent another oil spill. Does anyone really believe this? I cannot name a law that has prevented anything. Yes, there are good laws, laws that someone inevitably breaks.
What this shows is the failed reliance, our faith, in government, as if it is God.
Maybe what the writer wants is for BP to be punished. I agree, they really screwed up the gulf. In fact, BP has paid $20 billion and is preparing for collective action lawsuits.
Polluters will be punished but tragedies will still occur regardless of any legislation. Government can protect our property, but it cannot prevent anything.
What liberals don’t understand about the Tea Party movement is that spending, not the deficit is the focus.
Yes the deficit is the problem today, but many people believe it caused by out of control government spending. Wars, social programs, and even congressional pet projects are schemed without ever considering the revenue.
Assuming whatever President Obama is saying is what he’s really aiming to do*, it won’t satisfy the Tea Party. That is unless he cuts spending. *remember his campaign promises to close GITMO, end wars, raise taxes, and etc.
I thought schools were about education? Human reliance upon schools to raise children is beyond comprehension. It’s one thing to help children understand math; it’s another thing to force diets on children.
