Why Local Control Trumps The Feds

Fox news reported the orginal Fed plan was to light the oil and let it burn. The Greenies threw a fit and what they got is worse than if we had just let a F-4 fly across the slick and it it with Napon. Horray for the Boys in Bama for using some sense on this. I all for the Hay option.

Katrina on steroids.

Weeks Bay and its estuary is one of our favourite spots. The folks there are doing a great job. The same cannot be said for most of the Federal actions in this area. Most people here learned a long time ago that one cannot depend upon the Federal/Union government to address local concerns; regardless of their magnitude.

Hello Lawrence. Precisely. They would have enough to keep them occupied if they just kept to their constitutional responsibilities. Of course, that doesn't translate into enough power for the statists. Katrina, the oil spill, etc, prove in very sad way that the Federal government is, for the most part, an over-bloated and inept organization. National politics has morphed into Hollywood for the ugly.
