I'm sending this article to everyone I know....after all that has been said by Republicans about the Obama Administration's bailout of the Banking business, to have them advocate bailing out the oil industries, whose profits have been astronomical over the last years is the most ludicrious thing I've heard. And it just keeps getting crazier. Take this to the Tea Party folk - their going to love this one. How to ensure there is no possibility of connection between mainstream GOP and Tea Baggers. This is it.

Now why am I not surprised? They just stuck their middle finger at all the gulf states, and soon the east coast.

I guess this is their way of spreading the wealth and giving free oil to the people.
