Well Cricketeers, even though spill baby spill continues to spew massive amounts of black poison into the gulf of mexico. There is one, although too little, too late, event that is a move in the right direction. knucklehead in chief of the minerals (mis)management (dis)service, elizabeth birnbaum has stepped down. One feckless appaRATchik down, too damn many to GO!

Gulf oil spill now bigger than Exxon ValdezBy GREG BLUESTEIN and SETH BORENSTEIN, Associated Press Writers
COVINGTON, La. – The Gulf oil spill has surpassed the Exxon Valdez as the worst in U.S. history, according to new estimates released Thursday, but the Coast Guard and BP said an untested procedure to stop it seemed to be working.
A team of scientists trying to determine how much oil has been flowing since the offshore rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20 and sank two days later found the rate was more than twice and possibly up to five times as high as previously thought.
Even using the most conservative estimate, that means the leak has grown to nearly 19 million gallons over the past five weeks, surpassing the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska, which at about 11 million gallons had been the nation’s worst spill. Under the highest Gulf spill estimate, nearly 39 million gallons may have leaked, enough to fill 30 school gymnasiums.
“Now we know the true scale of the monster we are fighting in the Gulf,” said Jeremy Symons, vice president of the National Wildlife Federation. “BP has unleashed an unstoppable force of appalling proportions.”
BP did not immediately comment on the new estimate.
U.S. Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt said two different teams of scientists calculated that the well has been spewing between 504,000 and more than a million gallons a day.
SONOFABUSH! Does it surprise anyone that the corpoRATe media cartels are now widely reporting that the spill baby spill is now officially worse then the exxon valdez disaster? It doesn’t surprise me that the corpoRATe media cartels are very late in suddenly announcing what was obvious to most of us weeks ago! This is the biggest environmental crime in history!
DAGNABIT! Also quite slow on the uptake is the ethically challenged statusQUObama admin! Taking responsibility is a good thing, but only if done sincerely. I don’t see that sincerity in the speech and actions of statusQUObama! The other shoe that needs to be dropped on the pointed little heads of the environmental criminal corpoRATeers at bee pee are CRIMINAL CHARGES! The “ragin’ cajun” little jimmy carville his self has done tooked the statusQUObama admin to task for it’s failure! When a made man in laBAMAnostra and the hick in chief of the klinton klan hillbillies bitches out his own butt buddy statusQUObama, you know the political armadillo is done runned over! SPLAT!
FAGETABOWDIT! statusQUObama is ever want to do everything in a “bipartisan” manner. Now he’s getting his dumb political ass kicked in a “bipartisan” manner! Not only is sweet talkin’ slim getting his ass whipped by the filthy repubs. He’s also getting politically FRAGGED by his own dirty dem troops! They gonna be BURNING signed copies of obamessiah’s excuse catechism at BBQ’s this upcoming three day weekend!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I wanna see perp walks! We wanna see bee pee executhieves in orange jumpsuits and shackles! That goes double for the feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn who were supposed to be regulating them and FAILED! OFF WITH THEIR corpoRATe HEADS!
We continue to insist that the criminal statusQUObama admin:
- Cut pork barrel military spending by 50%! FUCK the military industrial complex!
- Replace the failed “down payment plan” with universal single payer health care!
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
