When I ran my story yesterday we had the biggest visitor spike we’ve had here at RegisteredEvil since we changed to the new location from Techography.

I want to take a moment and thank you for that.

Today several other writers are jumping on the gas price band wagon pointing out the variety of aspects that, in my view anyway, supports my hypothesis.

Lets take a look.

$755 Billion dollars.

That’s the 2009 estimate of how much we owe China in long-term debt.

And they are still buying it, just as hard as they can go.

With credit holdings totaling almost 1 Trillion dollars the idea that Dem’s think they can call Chinese leaders “dictators”, while demanding human rights in their country is to say the very least, foolish.

This is in reply to a previous post: Don’t go Fixing your Dishwasher.

Bloodspite and myself had a conversation yesterday about the phosphate content in dish washing detergent.  It started when he told me of his woes in the dirty dish land, in which he couldn’t seem to get his dishes clean via his automatic dish washer.  I told him tales of the marvelous detergent I had been using in my 22 year old dish washer.  Gave him the link in which to find this modern miracle which removed 5 day old spaghetti sauce, and dried up re-fried beans… I was even so bold as to tell him that if id didn’t work, I would refund his money personally….

Then he told me that he had tried it, and that when I opened my new box of this miracle product, I may find my self in his same situation…

He was right….

The media would have had an absolute field day.

Never mind warrant-less wire tapping. What the Obama Administration is pushing for is knowing where you are via your cellphone 24/7

And they aren’t stopping there either!

The administration has also asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reverse its August ruling requiring court warrants to affix GPS devices to vehicles to track their every move. The administration said Americans should expect no privacy “in the totality of his or her movements in public places.

Emphasis mine
A full PDF of the hearing can be found here and a recitation of the rebuttal found here

Folks it is time to step up and pay attention.

No matter who you voted for or what group your affiliated with, this is wrong, period.

and now some quotes from your president:

…I can’t suck it up with a straw…

…plug the damn hole…

…so I know who’s ass to kick…

Well sir, through no fault of your own, (and no help from you either), the “damn hole” is plugged.  You didn’t even try to kick anyone’s “ass”, and for the record, if you tried to “suck it up with a straw”, at least you would have contributed to the effort.

This is where I keep tabs on the slimy Liberals, and where I write my posts.  This is also where I ensure that none of Barak Husein Obama’s lies go un-noticed, and where I keep the news (that the liberal media doesn’t want you to hear) flowing for all to see.  This is where I hold ALL public officials accountable for their actions…….

My Command Post. (a.k.a. my office) Win7, Vista, and Linux working seamlessly...

So, you voted, and were promised Hope, and Change, eh?

Well, here it is, the Hope and Change for the Obama-nation:

obama-liarliar

Unemployment is down from 9.7% to a lower 9.5%  Sound good huh?  Not so, here are the numbers:

225,000 census employees temporary jobs were canned;

125.000 fewer people are recieving checks this month;

So why is the unemployment number down??  Because people are giving up.

A staggering 650,000 people dropped out of the job search market, they just gave up, and stopped looking.  No one ever talks about that.  They only see that the number is going down, and do not realize that “maybe when you subtract 325,000 people from the job market, it should be going up?”

America, you have been brainwashed, and you no longer ask questions.  I have said it before, and I will say it again, Wake Up, and ask questions!

That’s not illegal, at least not yet…

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to welcome you to the new American Caste System!

Funded by our tax dollars, our soldiers blood and fueled by a leadership class who looks down its noses at our wishes, desires, and ideology.

Fear for your families safety? The Administration does not care.

Fear for your country? The Administration does not care.

Fear for your rights? The Administration does not care.

Fear for our countries Economics? The Administration does not care.

Fear of our countries debt, for your children’s sake? The Administration does not care.

Fear for the laws that you, by Constitutional right have passed, along with your fellow citizens?

The Administration does. Not. Care.

You see, it has become a war my friends. A war not of bullets, of mortars, or guns, or even of words.

But of votes.

How you ask? Read On

The purpose of this post is to educate the general population on just how deceptive this BP oil spill is.  Not only did the Government ignore this situation, but the high ranking officials in both Transocean, and BP seemed to care more about the money, than actual human life.  When we are blinded by money, and power, there is a more important fact that gets pushed to the side:  that fact is that human life should be the most important factor in these situations.

At a hearing before a House subcommittee, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif.,revealed that the blowout preventer actually  had a leak in a hydraulic  system. Also, this blowout preventer failed a negative pressure test a few hours before the explosion.   At another hearing in Louisiana on Tuesday, the government engineer who gave BP the final approval to drill admitted that he didn’t ask for proof that the blowout preventer even worked.  Mike Mason (an oil rig worker in Alaska) describes the “pressure tests” as a test that puts pressure on a valve for 5 minutes, increasing the pressure from 250 pounds per square-inch (psi) to 5,000 psi.  He also states that while he worked for the pipeline, many of the tests were forged, running for 30 seconds – instead of 5 minutes.  This happened on many rigs he worked on, including many wells owned by BP.    

“Mason claims that a BP representative was usually present while subcontractors performed the tests.”  

Since January 2005, inspectors issued only one minor infraction for the rig. That track record led the agency to praise the Deepwater Horizon as an industry model for safety. However, inspection gaps are the latest in questions raised about the oversight of the oil drilling industry. 

At first, officials said 83 inspections had been performed since the rig arrived in the gulf 104 months ago, in September 2001. While being questioned about the once-per-month claim, the officials subsequently revised the total up to 88 inspections. The number of more recent inspections also changed — from 26 to 48 in the 64 months since January 2005.  

Even using the more favorable numbers for the most recent 64 months, 25 percent of monthly inspections were not performed.

“From 2005 through 2007, a Transocean rig was involved in 13 of the 39 deep-water drilling incidents investigated by the MMS in the Gulf of Mexico, or 33%. That’s roughly in line with the percentage of deep-water rigs, 30%, Transocean owned and operated in the Gulf then, according to data firm RigLogix.”

trouble at sea chart

Since this merger, Transocean has accounted for 24 of the 33 incidentsinvestigated by the MMS, and during that time they owned less than half the Gulf of Mexico rigs that are in more than 3,000 feet of water.  In case you do not comprehend this too well, of all the accidents 3,000 feet and deeper, Transocean owns 73% of them.  That’s a big number, no matter how you spin it.

Now, I could continue to pummel you with these facts about the complete disregard for safety, and that is unfortunate.  Here is another account of just one more in the long list of ignorance. 

Down, close to the bottom of the well pipe, is the Blowout Preventer, (BOP).  It’s essentially a rubber flap that, when closed, will seal off the pipe to do pressure testing, and also as a safety measure if something goes awry.  One man’s account of this is as follows:

“Williams says, during a test, they closed the gasket. But while it was shut tight, a crewman on deck accidentally nudged a joystick, applying hundreds of thousands of pounds of force, and moving 15 feet of drill pipe through the closed blowout preventer. Later, a man monitoring drilling fluid rising to the top made a troubling find.

“He discovered chunks of rubber in the drilling fluid. He thought it was important enough to gather this double handful of chunks of rubber and bring them into the driller shack. I recall asking the supervisor if this was out of the ordinary. And he says, ‘Oh, it’s no big deal.’ And I thought, ‘How can it be not a big deal? There’s chunks of our seal is now missing,’”

Rig on fire

 

 

 

After all this, I think we all are aware of the next phase of this disaster: Ka-boom.  The rig explodes, 11 workers missing, and presumed dead.  Then the rig sinks into the deep, murky water.  This is merely a preamble for what is to come….

  • Now comes the oil.

Due to all the failures of management, and safety neglect, what should have been a routine shut off of the well pipe, turned into a nightmare.  Oil continues to gush out of this broken pipe.  My opinion? They should have started a controlled burn, and maintained it until the hole could be plugged, or capped.  But as you know, my opinion doesn’t matter.  So far, it’s been one failure after another.

1)  Chemical Dispersants – great, now a majority of oil is no longer floating on the surface, its down below the surface – where we cannot get to it, but the marine life can, and they suffer.

2)  They tried to “cap” it off with a structure similar to an outhouse, only about 2-3 stories high.  The result:  A massive failure.

3)  Next was a smaller “cap”, the result of this one:  A somewhat smaller failure.

4)  Now the “top kill” method.  This is where they shoot mud, chunks of concrete, rubber balls, and other assorted trash.  This has been somewhat effective in the past, however, not this time.  Yet another failure.

**Note:  During this entire time, the United States Government has yet to respond with anything other than criticism, and blame throwing.  Typical. **

5)  The latest attempt is still in progress.  This one is very interesting, because if this one fails, it will have made the spill much, much worse.  With this attempt, they are cutting out the broken pipe, and putting a permanent cap on it.  The danger lies with the cutting, if this cap does not fit, and stop the oil leak, the hole in which the oil is escaping will be much larger, allowing the oil to escape much faster.

Here is some very interesting news: 

  • This gulf oil spill is a mere mirror of what happened in the 1970 Ixtoc I oil spill.  This spill happened to a company called Permex.  Mexico’s government-owned oil company Pemex (Petróleos Mexicanos) was drilling a 3 km (1.9 mi) deep oil well when the rig Sedco 135Flost drilling mud circulation.  Interestingly enough, this is basicly the same problem with the BP rig, accept the BP rig sealed its own fate when they replaced its drilling mud with seawater.
  • 30,000 barrels of oil per day were flowing from the well in Ixtoc 1 when they also tried the “top kill” method.  It helped by reducing the flow to 20,000 barrels, and then to 10,000 barrels.
IXTOC_I_oil_well_blowout

Ixtoc 1 Oil Spill, 1979

 

  

  • In the next nine months, divers were brought in to contain and cap the oil well.  It took nearly a year to contain the oil, and even longer to clean it up.  The important thing about all of this is, not only has this kind of thing happened before, it happened because of the same mechanical factor. 

The fact is, BP needed the oil to flow faster, and for that reason, they sacrificed life, for money.  No amount of money can replace a human life.  My hope is that we finally learn from our mistakes, but that seems to be nearly impossible in this day and age.

But where is the Federal Government?  That’s anyone’s guess.  Although they say that they have been there since day 1, very little has been done by the Obama administration.  This morning I heard that the President was on his way to the spill, but he is just a casual observer at this point.  They have, however, sent BP a bill for $69 million dollars for the cleanup effort.

So, with all the safety that has been ignored, and all the things that have gone wrong in the past to create this similar situation, you have to ask yourself:  Why did this happen again?  The answer is simple:  Until human life, and the environment (in this case, sea life) become a bigger priority than the money that is to be made, you will see these situations cropping up time, and time again.

I’ll tell you who doesn’t care…..the so called “president”. 

Could he be the first president who did not attend the Memorial Day Service at Arlington?  I think so….

Even looking back at the last 2 presidents, Clinton went to all 8 services in his presidency, Bush went to 7 of the 8, and he did not attend one because he was at another ceremony in France honouring D-Day Vets.  What really amazes me, is the fact that this is his second vacation just since the oil spill….that’s 2, count them, 2 vacations in just over a month?  WTF!?  and this is only his first year in office.  To me, this is total BS, and a complete lack of respect for this great nation, and the soldiers who bravely died so that we could enjoy freedom.  Mr. President, have fun shucking your duties, and ignoring the American people.  Hell, that’s what you have been doing so far, why should this surprise us.  I hope you have a rotten, crappy, miserable vacation.  Maybe if you get food poisoning, you might have a taste of what the people of this country are feeling because of your ignorance.

So who cares about a silly little thing like terrorists crossing the border?

We don’t need no stinkin’ security!

Typical brainless, pointless, knee jerk reaction by the Obama Administration and the Media with no actual though or substance to their reasoning.

Where’s the outrage we saw with Katrina?

Where’s the screaming? Where’s the blame? Where is the anxiety and the wild speculation?

And most importantly where, ladies and gentlemen, is the Federal Government?

So, its been a busy couple months in the Obama-nation.  So much to do.  Grant new offshore drilling legislation, and then find a way to retract it while still looking concerned for American energy independence.

obama energy

Here’s my personal theory:

As I understand it, a good percentage of the people in this country would like us to move toward Energy Independence, and those people (usually of Conservative Republican values) are also the percentage that disagree with the Obama administration.  What better way to “try” to get in the good graces of such people than to make a great stride toward this by expanding our offshore drilling.

Now this sounds like a president that is trying to please both parties, not always a bad thing, if your motives are genuine – ahem – and with this president, I believe they are not.

Louisiana Oil Rig Explosion

Now flash forward to the present day:  An oil rig off the American coast explodes.  The news reports that after the rig sank, the submerged pipeline is capped off, and very little oil should be in the water.  But wait, just a few days later, the “capped” line is gushing forth huge amounts of oil, and it is creeping toward the shore, threatening fish, dolphins, and the beaches in the Gulf Coast – as well as the Mississippi River.


 

 

 

*Note: In case you noticed, there is no link for the reports that the pipeline was capped off, In fact there were only a couple hours where the media was reporting that the line had been capped off after the sinking of the rig.  Its amazing how fast that report was ceased, and then reversed – as if it was a mistake.  My oppinion: it was ordered that the media was to change the story by order of national security.
 
As of this morning, the oil is starting to appear on the beaches of Louisiana, and is already being said to dwarf the Exxon Valdez disaster.  The shear magnitude of this disaster has conspiracy written all over it.  This should have not gotten this far out of hand, the Government should have deployed help long before it did.  Why did they wait so long to send help?  Why couldn’t a pipeline be shut off?  Why were there very few preventative measures taken at the mouth of the Mississippi River?
I know why, do you?

Obama reasoning on Wall Street Reform:

” … we also have basic rules of the road in place to make sure that investors, consumers, shareholders, the economy as a whole are protected against excess. Are protected against wild gambles that are taken– purely– because it’s– it’s good for some body’s– year-end bonus. As opposed to because there’s some economic function that actually– contributes to society as a whole.”

I love the way this guy speaks, he’s like a black William Shatner!  ” We’ve — got to — reform — Wall Street before — the rich get – any — richer — and they make — too much ——— profit for thier – hard work and ——- knowledge of the market “  This radical socialist president WILL NOT STOP until the whole country is controlled by the Government, and folks – It scares the hell out of me.  What if we get so far in that no one can save the simple Liberties of the American people, and if you think this is not serious, think again.

Today’s politician: John Oxendine

Headline: Oxedine Says “No” to Insurance Pool

 ATLANTA (AP) Georgia’s insurance commissioner says he won’t move forward with state participation in the first phase of a new federal health care plan, even though it could bring federal grants to the state.

Whats this?  Is someone standing up for the rights of Georgians?  Well, its about time.  I was wondering when my great state of Georgia was going to join the fight against this unconstitutional health care BS.  Whats more, the commissioner isn’t even worried about the $5 billion in federal grant money that he is turning down by opposing this insurance pool.  I would hope more Georgia politicians would follow suit and not be taken in by the non-stop lowlife bribery that is currently running rampant in this so called government.  I thought that the folks on capitol hill were supposed to look out for the best interest of its people, and not when the next kickback or grant was coming.

Tea Partiers. GOP. Fellow Americans. Lend me your ears.

Is this the best we can offer? Seriously?

This is our grand hope for the future?

I confess to being a snob when it comes to the written and oral word. I also perpetuate to hardly be the poster child of a Websters dictionary either, but that said at least I can speak as well as type in complete sentences.

While Obama is hardly Winston Churchill with his teleprompter rhetoric, sadly he does have the ability to hypnotize captivate intrigue listeners attention spans.

Listening to Palin however, just makes my skin absolutely crawl.
