The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/08/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/08/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe dive into the murky waters of the ongoing Gulf of Mexico horror show

Abe and Joe dive into the murky waters of the ongoing Gulf of Mexico horror show, and pay appropriate homage to the impeccable free market forces that first caused the disaster, and then failed to remedy it.

Also: President Obama continues his reluctance to seize the populist moment that history has handed him, as oil executives join the ranks of the elite power brokers to whom he has shown deference. Will the Gulf tragedy finally be enough to jolt him from his corporate doldrums?

Press**Watch: bomb the gusher?

Categories:

Last week I mentioned using Navy depth charges to seal the BP well.  It is worth noting that the US armed forces have giant non-nuclear devices like the MOAB which run to thousands of pounds and approach the force of a nuclear device.  I do NOT recommend the use of a nuke to seal the Gulf gusher, but apparently nukes have been used in the past by the Russians--and this would appear to be the source of the comment that I first heard on Thom Hartman's show (AM 620 Portland):

Coffee, Tea and VOE: A talk with Coffee Party PDX's Kristy Alberty and Common Cause Oregon's Nate Gulley

The Tea Party has captured the imagination of America's media industry if not the American people, lending it clout that far surpasses its numbers. Tea Party pressure has sent nervous Republican incumbents like Senator John McCain even more to the right. The Tea Party, however, remains a movement remains at heart a movement of negation: no taxes, no immigrants, no federal government. With their "Don't Tread on Me" flags and Obama-Hitler anologies, Tea Party activists have helped accelerate the decline of civil political discourse.

PressWatch: "Top Kill:" an effort to retain profits for BP?

Wed, 05/26/2010
Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know."  U.S. experiencing record budget deficits, pressures to increase on middle class?  And consider this: the reason that BP is trying 'containment' or 'top kill' is that they want to be able to profit from the thousands of feet of hole that they've already produced.  They know it has oil--we all do, now--so they want to "contain" it or plug it at the top ("top kill"), and that way they can save lots of money and still profit from the new "relief well."  The new well will use imaging seismic technology and directed slant drilling to access the (considerable) remainder of the old hole.
