Posted on 06/17/2010 4:47:19 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Eight days ago, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal ordered barges to begin vacuuming crude oil out of his state's oil-soaked waters. Today, against the governor's wishes, those barges sat idle, even as more oil flowed toward the Louisiana shore.

IN CASE ANYONE MISSED IT — the DAY Jindal ordered this, in another thread I PREDICTED the Feds would STOP his order from happening.

I was right. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Ladies and Gnetlemen!

No — I’m not a prophet — The Obamunists are just THAT freaking predictable. Let there be NO doubt — they WANT the Gulf Coast destroyed. It serves their ultimate purposes.

Why can’t you believe it? We all know Obama wants MAXIMUM DAMAGE from this spill to win over the hearts and minds of Americans towards HATING BIG OIL FOREVER, all hopping on-board the “clean energy” train to ruin.

"We are all in this together. The enemy is the oil," said Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Dan Lauer.

No. The enemy is a federal government that won't do its job and won't let anyone else do theirs either.

EPA, Fish and Wildlife, all of these agencies need to be broken up and handed back to the states. As state agencies they have an important function to perform. As federal agencies they are incompetent, unaccountable, and a barrier to effective action. They all fully believe that the country must answer to them rather than the other way around. They'll never get it until they are handed their transfers to Rapid City South Dakota, Baton Rouge, and 48 other state capitals and informed that they now work for the state governor... if the state chooses to fund their agency at all.

I just sent an email to the pres_ent and gave him an effing piece of my mind.

I’m sure it won’t make one bit of difference but at least I feel better now that I’ve ripped him a new one.

Do they need to do an EPA-mandated environmental impact study on the sucking barges?

Kooky question: If in times like this, an environment impact study seems ludicrous, why doesn’t it seem ludicrous all the time?

If it isn’t sane now, maybe it isn’t sane in general.

It’s time for Governor Jindal to tell an armed Louisiana National Gaurd to board the barges and KEEP working, and DARE the Feds and the Coast Guard to stop them from TRYING to save what’s left of their beaches, marshes, wildlife, fishing and tourist industries. SCREW Washington.

These vessels would have had to be inspected BEFORE they left wherever they were docked....and I'm sure they were.

Maritime Laws are very strict. I read that they eventually waived the inspection.

I don't believe there is any power who can do that during peace time conditions....so lets call it what it is....harrassment.

Kooky truther! You hate America first. We'll never have a president who doesn't love us like a benevolent god/father. You think that way about the Commander in Chief in a time of war? By extension, you hate the troops and want to have homosexual relations with Osama bin Laden. Not in MY AMerica! We're free. Nothing bad will ever happen. And Everyone is jealous of us cause we have more liberty now than anyone ever anywhere.

Delayed a day, but they did get the go-ahead:

....”But the Coast Guard ordered the stoppage because of reasons that Jindal found frustrating. The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges. “
...snip....

“After Jindal strenuously made his case, the barges finally got the go-ahead today to return to the Gulf and get back to work, after more than 24 hours of sitting idle. “

I am curious why the governors of the affected states have not gone rogue.
I have read that they may risk arrest if they do anything against a government decree. I also think it would be a badge of honor, possibly elevating them to the Presidency if they went rogue.
Jindahl- have a news conferance and tell the reporters that this government effort is poorly and incompetantly done. Demand Obama waive the Jones Act, or you will show up in Congress demanding it.
Invite the Dutch tankers in. Bring the reporters out on a boat with you, and they can film the Coast Guard not allowing the Dutch access. Make the Kenyan look stupid.
You can do it! If you do, the Presidency could be yours. Most Americans like decisive, take no prisoners leaders.

I agree with you. I have been monitoring a liberal board from before he got elected to now and they went from being arrogant defenders of him to chiding him for being “just a showman with no gonads” and “not who we thought he was” ever since he partied and golfed from day one of the oil spill. He believes since he is demonizing BP he is fooling his leftist voters. I got news for him. He is already toast to them and they feel betrayed. Nothing I showed them made any difference but this has hung him. My Democrat neighbors told me they are never voting Democrat again because of what he did to their Medicare Advantage. Our governors need to go for it and do what they must for their states.
