On Monday Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) claimed that the oil rig explosion that caused a massive oil spill in the Gulf Coast area may not have been preventable because it could be "an act of God." Hmm ... I didn't know that a lax attitude, ignoring alternate valves, making decisions against placing acoustic regulators (which can remotely shut down well heads), etc. were God's department. Indeed, when did God start working for British Petroleum?
There is one thing that seems clear at this point: You can probably bet the house that the oil industry (a.k.a. "God" for Republicans) will reward Gov. Perry with campaign contributions for his astute - but as of yet unfounded - observation.
On a related note, you can check out Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s lawsuit, and what he has to say about what we need to look at with regard to the BP oil spill here ...
