    I just checked my copy of the Constitution.....

    Nowhere in there does it say it is a federal responsibility to clean up oil. So I guess that falls under the 10th Amendment

    Don't be a douche. Republicans are not anarchists, as you well know.

    The federal government is supposed to address national emergencies. If they're not doing that anymore... what the fuck are we paying them for?

    Don't be a douche with your broad brushed generalities. Please show me specifically where our Constitution states that our Federal Government is required to help clean up oils spills.

    no. rightwingers aren't anarchists. but they spend a lot of time saying absurd things like "the scariest words you can hear are 'i'm from the federal government and i'm here to help'."

    isn't that jindal's rant? if it weren't for the fact that the people of NOLA would be hurt again (and I love NOLA...) i'd say tell jindal he can stick it.

    weren't you guys the ones saying FEMA didn't have to do anything during Katrina and it was blanco's responsibility?

    just sayin.

    i'm glad we can agree though that it is the responsiblity of the government to step in during emergencies. i think that means environmental, catastrophic and economic.

    and i promise not to say 'i told you so' about why we shouldn't be drilling offshore.

    Who would say that the federal government shouldn't have responded to Katrina? :eusa_eh:
    I've never heard anyone, conservative or otherwise, say that.


    Um... edit to say that I missed VA's previous post and apparently HE says it. Sheesh. :rolleyes:

    A. The National Guard/Soldiers/Airman isn't equipped to clean up this oil spill. They are equipped to keep the peace and for search and rescue.

    B. The Constitution doesn't include Title 32 of the U.S. Code. But then, if Title 32 of the U.S. Code contradicted or contravened the US Constitution, then it wouldn't be upheld.

    C. The precedent for keeping the peace in Southern LA was set by Republican President Bush after Katrina: Why should anyone be surprised now, if a Republican LA Governor used the same satute to keep the peace in light of another disaster?

    D. Who the fuck is Oliver Willis?

    As an aside, has anyone else noticed those BP commercials telling just how safe drilling for oil off our shores is these days, have somehow disappeared from the airwaves?:eusa_shhh:
