Fuck all of you for saying this, and fuck that stupid, illiterate whore named S. Palin. I live in Florida, and without its beautiful beaches it's not much of a state. Obama precluded any possibility of earning my vote in 2012 due to his recent approval to INCREASE drilling in the gulf. At this point in time I would gladly buy foreign oil and let them worry about their own ecological disasters. I would gladly pay more for fuel and adjust my already modest living standard to ensure that the Gulf is safe.
I am seething with rage right now. So are millions of other Gulf residents. The feds did not care about us during Katrina. I liked Obama until recently, but seeing him at the WH correspondents' dinner while this spill is going on is just too much. The Gulf Coast is the "3rd coast" in this country. That name is fitting since the feds seem to think it's a third-world region of this nation.
I am no protester. Only with my wallet, selecting other brands of gasoline from now on. And I have been railing against expanded offshore drilling in the Gulf for quite a while, factoring it into my voting decisions and influence of others.
