Thank You, President Obama

January 29, 2011

After taking some time off, I have decided to return to writing for Louisiana Conservative. It’s not that I had a shortage of things to say, but rather, I’ve had a watershed year that made me rethink who I was as a human being. I wish our President would have a moment of growth.

So, why would a conservative like me come and return with a post that’s titled, “Thank You, President Obama”? Well that’s because of this story in Reuters.

(Adds Pride rig moving to Mediterranean)

Jan 27 (Reuters) – Some of the 30-plus deepwater rigs that were in the Gulf of Mexico have moved to other markets, first because of a U.S. halt called last May after BP Plc’s (BP.L: Quote) well blowout, and then because of the lack of permits once the moratorium was lifted.

Below are rigs contracted to work in the Gulf of Mexico that have been or will be moved to other regions.

The article lists deepwater rigs that are leaving the Gulf of Mexico and moving to other countries. With it, the jobs. Thanks Obama for your vision of America where we don’t produce oil, we don’t use oil, and we don’t have the jobs from the oil industry. Of course if only every other country shared your vision then nobody would use oil. Thank you for losing our jobs, oh and thank you President Obama for single handily increases our gas prices.

If we were too dependent on foreign food, what’s the solution? Make room for more farm land, right? Not in President Obama’s ingenious world, his solution would be to limit the land we can use for farming, and send farmers to other countries to farm… which somehow magically would decrease our dependence on foreign food.

In that same matter, by not drilling for our own oil, or limiting our own resources, we only become more dependent on foreign oil. How leftist in the country can not see it is mind boggling stupidity.

Oh I get it, he wants his Utopian green energy, and that’s all fine and dandy, and maybe it will work, maybe it won’t. I don’t know. I do know this, to cut off our own resources while we search for alternative energy is imbecilic. He accuses the Right of wanting to drill and not doing anything to promote green energy, but his solution is to quit using oil overnight, and jump off the cliff for a vision.

President Obama, in a time where jobs are becoming scarce, we in the gulf coast owe you our gratitude for pushing our oil industry jobs far away from here. Yes, we got good pay, and yes that money helped us make a decent living, and yes, that money helped pay for vacation in Florida, Las Vegas, California, and many other tourist destinations in the United States… but thanks to your vision, we’re probably going to not have to worry about spending money. No, we’ll just find minimum wage jobs and spend our money, not on evil things like electricity, food, clothes, and vacations… but that’s probably going to be more because we’ll required to buy health care.

You’re such a visionary President Obama, thank you, you jackass.


This is the result when the federal government legislates outside the confines of the Constitution. It never ends well whether it's a Dumbocrat or Republican.
