    Exclamation Meth, porn use by drilling agency staff

    IG report: Meth, porn use by drilling agency staff

    WASHINGTON Staff members at an agency that oversees offshore drilling accepted tickets to sports events, lunches and other gifts from oil and gas companies and used government computers to view pornography, according to an Interior Department report alleging a culture of cronyism between regulators and the industry.
    Sounds like pigs and the White House should be looking at reforming the whole system and calling for some firing.

    It was reported back in 2008 by The New York Times. Apparently, few cared at the time, which is unfortunate.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Won't happen.

    Oh, perhaps a few people kicked out...only to land jobs in the industry they "regulated"...

    But no "reforming the whole system"...damnit.

    Just goes to show you some of those off-front page articles turn into front page articles down the road. The fact that the MMS was literally in bed with the oil industry is the root of the problem we are not experiencing in the gulf.

    Exclamation RE: Meth, porn use by drilling agency staff

    I came across a good website promoting a boycott of BP.

    boycottbp.org

    Looks like it's a good resource.

    Also, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, partly owned by BP, was shut down tonight after a crude oil spill.

    Just wait until the government gets entrenched in healthcare. The corruption, side deals, favoritism, abuse and waste will dwarf this little Mini Dept.

    What....croynism? Next they'll be telling us that cronyism exists in the economic markets as well. Like the regulatory committees not properly rating companies and things of that nature.

    But seriously, can any of us be surprised? Maybe that's the sad state of the current world we live in that this is expected behavior. The government has long run itself like this and it's not limited to just oil.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Blah, blah, blah... stay on topic.

    According to the article, this agency became totally corrupt in 2005. What do you think about that?

    Hit a nerve I see.
    Does it remind you of Kanuckistan's Waiting List System?

    What do I think?
    I think government is way too big, and a lot of these appendages need to be amputated.
