Huge Oil Field Discovered - Gulf of Mexico To Be Drained
After this week's announcement of a major new oil find in the Gulf of Mexico, Bush administration officials let it be known that the President is considering the most ambitious public works project since the Panama Canal -
"We intend to drain the Gulf of Mexico," Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne announced at midday press conference. "America needs energy, and we want to make it as easy as possible to suck that crude from the ground. No ships, no platforms. Just long, easy to maintain, pipelines headed out into our new territory. Moreover this will take care of our Hurricane problem once and for all. Never again will our southern coasts be threatened by the almighty's wrath."
When asked how other nations might feel about the loss of bountiful fishing territories and revenue from seaside tourist destinations, the Secretary replied, "They'll just have to get used to it. Where talking about our energy independence here."
John, SA...that's the spirit! 'The Basin of Mexico'...bwahahahahahah! ;-)
I think that maybe Bu$hCo would just like to shovel Venezuela and Cuba into the 'Basin' and let the water flow to the new holes. We'll call them the 'Orinoco Sea' and 'The Fidel Castro Memorial Tidal Pool'.
I love it when we can kill two birds with one stone.
Who lives like an emperor right in D.C.?
Inane, dim-witted, and hopeless is he.
PT, right you are.
and then let mother nature fill it back up again...
i'm envisioning something like the parting of the red sea...
Lukku... You're right it would but I think the SA suggested a wall.
Fred, you're not going to head out and buy Rex Kramer's Hummer 'Gottendamerung'? :-)
Betty, actually think of all the recoverable material we'll be able to find. The mind boggles.
Marie... Republican thinking on this would be 'drain 'er anyway' and we'll worry about the consequences later.
James...true but this would be the ultimate triumph of Bush over Nature, right?
Romunov, I'm thinking of giving up on commentary and just going with fake news.
