    I'll be willing to bet that the Federal inspectors (Interior Department) of oil rigs didn't inspect them as they should have.
    I'll go one further.
    I'll bet they were watching porn on their computers like the Sec. clowns and taking gifts from the oil companies.
    Well, thats what you get with statism.

    You mean the people appointed by President Bush.

    It makes no difference who appointed them. The fact that they are government workers makes them more likely to be worthless.

    If there is one area in which I agree with certain conservative commentators it is in government waste. When I was in the service, we used to refer to civilians as "feather merchants." You can guess why, how a society manages people who pretty much have a job for life and the best benefits is very difficult. Don't get me wrong, there are many good people, keeping the nation running and safe, but there are many loads - as there are in all of life.
