The BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill is a tragedy that affects us all. We’ve seen the pictures, watched the video feed*, and, inside, we are all hurt.For the residents along the gulf coast, however, the pain is much worse. Fishermen have lost their livelihood, children hoping for a summer of fun at the beach are heartbroken, and many long term prospects are in jeopardy.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY. At LEAST NOT FOR LIBERALS.The new millenium started off as one of high hopes for most liberals. Eight years of record economic growth and record shrinking deficits and improved government efficiency should have built a bridge to a Shining New Century.
But we all no what happened instead. The Republicans brought this country two wars, record deficits, and a global economic meltdown that crushed liberals everywhere. But for GULF COAST LIBERALS they also had the failure of Katrina to deal with. That last blow would have crushed most, but not the GULF COAST LIBERALS. They helped out their fellow citizens, even the Red Staters that had called them traitors for years following 9/11.
BUT NOW, The GULF OIL DISASTER may be the final blow. AND IT’S TIME WE HELPED.
THEY DIDN’T VOTE FOR THE DYSFUNCTIONAL, CORRUPT MINERALS MANAGEMENT SERVICE. THEY DIDN’T VOTE CLOSED DOOR POLICY MEETINGS OF OIL OFFICIALS WITH DICK CHENEY.
THEY WANTED A STRONG FEDERAL OVERSIGHT: THEY GOT BP TELLING THEM THEM COULDN’T TAKE PICTURES ON THEIR OWN BEACHES.
ITS TIME SOMEONE HELPED THEM, INSTEAD OF OIL COMPANIES! THE GULF COAST IS PROBABLY LOST FOR A GENERATION. WHY SHOULD GULF COAST LIBERALS HAVE TO SUFFER? ITS NOT THEIR FAULT!
Already, hundreds of Gulf Coast Liberal Refugees have made their way to Texas to escape the Republican Disaster:
Only to find Thomas Jefferson stripped from the History Books!
THAT’S WHY THERE’S
ADOPT A GULF COAST LIBERAL
A back yard, a spare room, a guest house: if you’ve got the space, why not consider Adopting A Gulf Coast Liberal.
*Except when BP, a foreign company, has censored them.
