I have a concern/question/conspiracy theory.....................

....why is it when Mr. Obama is criticized for helping Brazil to drill for oil, we lent them 3 billion, and our country can barely get permission to drill, all of a sudden more floating oil shows up in the Gulf?

Like, "See, anyone drilling here is a polluter!" This last "spill" was caused by a Norwegian or Swiss (forget) outfit. The spill last year was British BP. Has an American company ever caused a spill here?

Why a tiny spill the week of a brouhaha about Obama and Brazil? Not a big spill, not necessary, as the huge damage was done last year. It decimated our oil industry, an Obama "crisis".

Just the right size to be a reminder that Americans aren't fit to drill.

Either spill on purpose?

  • Not big on conspiracy theories but I have to admit that it seems like there are more "well, will you look at that....." these days- not sure if its tied just to this administration or if the media and big business and others have so much control that they can tweak us this way and that-

    And yes, what you mentioned does feel like "well, will you look at that..."

  • Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who prefer denial to the truth, they prefer to call the people who do have concerns, names and dismiss them. I have no problem in thinking there are conspiracies, imo, thanks to George Soros and other progressives, there are many going on currently...

  • George Soros has the money and is heavily invested in the Brazil oil Co. He does spend a lot of time at the White House.

  • Not only did we pay them to drill, they are now contracting with China to sell it.
