ABC News: BP Oil Spill: Against Gov. Jindal's Wishes, Crude-Sucking Barges Stopped by Coast Guard
Hot Air: Coast Guard shuts down oil-skimming barges due to … lack of life vests onboard
This is the result of big government and is the reason the Founders of this country wrote the Constitution in order to limit the duties and power of the Federal government. They knew if the feds were allowed to operate unchecked (which they are!) we would have this complete, total, absolute, madness in charge of us and controlling more and more of our lives. The Governor of Louisiana is being hindered by the Federal government from protecting his coast and because of that the oil is coming ashore. Frankly, he has been hindered by them since the start of this catastrophe.
Why have We the People allowed this government to grow to the size it is today? And, don't look now, but they continue to grab more and more power from the States and from the people. It never ends!!
Mark Levin believes we are now living under a soft tyranny and I think he's right. The question is, when does the hard tyranny begin? It's coming.
The worst is yet to come!!
