I've had it

BP Oil Spill cartoon

This has nothing to do with art, but I've had it.

I've had it with the incompetence of this government and BP in dealing with the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. I've had it with BP and the US Government and their excuses. I don't want to hear any more excuses as to why we have over 1,000 oil skimming ships in this country and they're everywhere but the Gulf. I don't want to hear any more excuses as to why we didn't accept foreign help to clean up the Gulf until a few days ago. I don't want to know why the world's largest oil skimmer is just getting there and then heading to a port, rather than getting to work. I don't want to know why the Navy submarine rescue teams haven't been employed to help with underwater operations.

The United States government has either the most inept set of bureaucrats handling the second worst ecological oil disaster in history (so far), or the President of the United States either doesn't get it, care, or is being told and advised a bunch of bullshit.

This is a million fucking times worse than Katrina and a lot of bureaucrats don't get it, the mainstream press doesn't get it (where the fury?), even the environmental experts and nature lovers don't get it (otherwise they'd be picketing outside the White House) and the President better fucking get it soon or I fear for the health of this entire planet.
