THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner
Sunday, February 1, 2015
Listen up, Bobby!
Well, President Empty Chair got put in the corner, briefly, and the Keystone XL pipeline expansion legislation was passed... and, in the same week that over 10,000 Americans employed in the oil exploration trade lost their jobs, Dear Leader sensitively responded to his recent loss of face by stomping on the nuts of the oil industry, slapping massive new restrictions on oil and gas drilling... that'll show those evil oil companies not to fuck with The One. Only Barrack Hussein Obama can decimate the middle class! So, the guys who survived Round One of layoffs are about to get bent over without the benefit of a little EVOO or Kentucky Jelly.
I am Paul B, and I spend most of my life at sea. Ships, Science, the life of a mariner, biology and (mostly) true stories of life among the best and the worst people in the world, the United States Merchant Marines. You'll find it here, maybe. You'll definitely find rants, raves and discussion on life aboard a merchant ship. Come back and see the Brazilian girls, too, who show up fairly regularly.
