Your Tax Dollars at Work...

The Deepwater Horizon well has been belching great gobs of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for months now.  Our federal government has been spending millions of dollars, hard at work on mitigating the damage and finding a cure.

Or at least, that's what Obama would have you believe.  The reality is just a bit different.  Just this morning comes the news that finally the federal government has decided to allow foreign nations to help us out.  That would be those foreign nations that own more than 90% of the world's oil spill cleanup equipment, and who have been clamoring to help since the day the well blew up.  Stories like this one have been in the press for months now.

Isn't it comforting to know that the government showing such speedy, sensible response is the same one who's going to be taking care of you if you have a medical emergency?
