Sorry I haven't posted for so long! My life of late has been extremely busy. Since I'm still pretty busy, I'm going to have to keep this post short and (hopefully) pithy.
So here goes nothing...
The environment definitely needs looking after. This BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico certainly is having adverse effects on the environment. But why isn't BP allowed to take care of the problem itself?
Apparently, the current regime believes that it has all the answers. Who in office now, though, has the expertise necessary to clean up an oil spill? No one. Why, then, does the government feel that it can take over BP's territory in such an egregious manner?
It could be any number of things. Personally, I believe that the current government has its own best interests in mind--not the best interests of the people. Throughout history, it is clear that more government consistently equals less freedom, more taxes, and less efficiency.
So the moral of this short "rant": the government needs to get out of the private sector posthaste. It's called the private sector--not the government sector--for a reason.
