In Response to BP's 8 dumbest mistakes by WernerS2
For years the mantra has been "let's starve the beast". Well, the beast is now so emaciated that it can no longer do what it is supposed to do. The beast no longer has the ability to regulate the marketplace to prevent abuse - either on Wall Street or in the Gulf of Mexico or food safety or border security or a whole host of other areas.
This is not only the predictable result of "tax cuts no matter what" but is in fact the intended result. If you are one of the "starve the beast" contingent, then you really should stop complaining about the oil spill.
