The Gulf Oil Spill: It’s Much Worse Than You Think

The media and big oil lobbies want you to believe that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico isn’t all that bad.

Check out this helpful image to learn the truth of the massive spill:

The Guardian says that the spill is easily on track to dump the equivalent of  300,000+ barrels of oil into the ocean. That’s considerably worse than the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill that spilled 258,000 barrels worth.

Now you know….and knowing is half the battle. Yo Joe.

Holy Carp!

Every now and then I intend to type “holy crap” and inevitably type “holy carp” instead. Blame it on the lisdexia.

What does that make me?
