My federal Valentine
My federal valentine
Sweet, comic valentine
You make my brain hurt a lot.
Your budget is laughable
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
At a time when Louisiana is begging for a fair share of oil and gas royalties from the federal government, everyone’s favorite President,
Giant W. Douche George W. Douche Bush is apparently considering waiving $7 billion in royalty payments by oil companies drilling in federal waters over the next five years.
What this means is that up to $65 billion of oil and natural gas will use our infrastructure and erode our shores without contributing a dime for wear and tear. As some of you may already know, Louisiana, thanks to a POS named Leander Perez, has already being screwed out of billions of dollars of oil and gas royalty payments by the federal government. Much more so than any other state. To add insult to injury, more oil and natural gas flows through Louisiana than any other state.
Baker Bill? “No thank you,” says GWB. Fair oil and gas royalties? “No, can’t support that, the federal government needs that revenue” says GWB. Comprehensive coastal restoration plan? “Uh, no, we need more science.”
And yet, there’s $7 billion (half of the proposed coastal restoration plan) that this douche can scrape up to give to cronies in the oil business.
Happy Valentine’s Day, indeed. I don’t really expect more from the boil on the ass of reason that Louisiana residents voted for TWICE. After all, he can’t get elected again unless he invents another unconstitutional “war power.” But his oil buddies, they’ll be in a much better position to write Douche’s $5 million appearance fee checks with an extra $7 billion in their pockets.
