Wanna be depressed to be an American?
Ten percent of Americans believe environmentalists intentionally sabotaged the oil rig Deepwater Horizon off the Gulf Coast according to a poll released Tuesday, apparently as part of a ploy to reduce Americans’ support for offshore drilling.
What a strange thought. It wouldn’t have even crossed my mind, what with it being completely nonsensical. How is it that 10% of Americans all came up with and believed in the same fanciful tale?
The surprising finding was contained in a poll released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh floated the idea on his nationally syndicated talk show.
Also notable in the poll was that almost a fifth of Americans said they were more likely to support offshore drilling after the oil disaster.
Do almost a fifth of Americans HAVE NO BRAIN?? Rush Limbaugh poses a greater threat to this country than most second rate ‘terrorists’. These responses don’t even start to make sense. Americans are outdoing themselves in gullibility. A national disaster is created by a careless corporation seeking crazy profits in an incalculably dangerous manner. And one fifth of Americans want corporations to take more of these chances, because, I can only assume, they want to spite liberals at the expense of sustainable fuel, the environment, and the livelihoods of those affected by the spill. I am so glad I am hanging out with more cows than people these days.
