Rush Limbaugh says the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion could be eco-terrorism, and he also says,



Quote:
“You do survive these things. I'm not advocating don't care about it hitting the shore or coast and whatever you can do to keep it out of there is fine and dandy, but the ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and was left out there," Limbaugh said. "It's natural. It's as natural as the ocean water is."



Do you agree with Limbaugh, that the oil gusher is just natural, and everyone should stop thinking of this as a disaster? That it could be the work of eco-terrorists?

Rush Limbaugh is a big fat pill popping punk , so I could really care less what the big waterhead punk say's anyway. The only thang Rush Limbaugh knows about nature is how to run his big fat mouth.

I do believe eco-terrorists could have been involved... it just seems plausible to me. I live among many, many eco-nuts here in Santa Fe, NM. I do believe these people are radical and committed enough to do this and justify it in their minds as being for the greater good. I'm not saying they did it... I'm just saying it would not shock me. Regardless, BP definitely dropped the ball on safety and the government dropped the ball on safety inspections.

Secondly, while oil is natural, it is not natural for it to gush out like this. This is not a natural disaster.

Eco-terrorists? Eco-terrorists blew up an oil rig, so that we could have the worst oil spill in the history of the United States? The logic of this escapes me... especially when all of the evidence points toward this particularly oil rig having issues for months and months, and nothing being done.

He's not saying the spill is natural, he's saying if left to its own devices, nature itself will clean up the spill.

With that being said, Rush is pond scum.

Well there are a lot of people that need bashing with this mess. There's a time to be nice and just go a long, then there is times like this when people that don't understand the scope of the problem need to just keep there mouth shut, course if your a big blow hard like Rush that's pretty much impossible.

All I have to say about this is this....at that depth, the ocean pressure would crush you like a aluminum can under a 10,000 lb block of cast iron. Of course logic and knowledge are not the strong suits of the lard@ss's listeners.
