Decline of SoLa

I think it is here...something that a couple of hundred years of wars, floods, hurricanes, and coastal erosion have not been able to bring about...the end of South Louisiana.

President Obama has reiterated his stance on the deepwater drilling moratorium while spending as much or more time pushing "Cap & Trade", or as I saw someone put it, "Smash Knee Cap & Tax", than talking about cleanup efforts. This does not bode well. Whether he knows it or not, he is forcing people to either A.) Move away to work somewhere else or B.) Lose their jobs and go on welfare...***Epiphany*** What better way to garner more support? Get a whole region dependent on him for survival! This is how demo-don'ts keep getting re-elected. This is also how dictators do it. Very scary.

I hope and pray that the people of the United States of America wake up to what's going on and don't let our country be turned into a powerless socialist has-been. Is it that everyone is OK with losing our freedom and sovereignty? I have heard a lot of people say that they would like to the US to be more like European countries...Have they seen the European countries lately? They are struggling! The EU is not quite working out like they had planned. The UK was wise to fully embrace the EU.

Enough of my ranting. I have gone from lamenting the decline of south Louisiana to complaining about the far left. I hope to make my next post about something positive in the oil and gas industry!

I did it...!

I finally created a blog. I had toyed with the idea for years, but never really got around to it because I never felt like I really had anything to say. Now...what can I say? Things change...

If you start following this blog, you can expect comments on politics, the oil & gas industry in general, the current spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), and a host of obviously and not so obviously related things. (Like the iPhone 4 pre-order opening does it tie in to the main topics I have listed? It (or devices like it) could one day become O&G Exploration workers' "brain" while on the job. Think about or take picture of situations going on, video conferencing, e-mail, etc. all right in the palm of their hands! LOL

Anyway, that's about it for my first post. Time to customize this thing.
