Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Oily to bed” edition

Good morning, gentle people! There’s still plenty of iso suits to go around, thanks to my ex ( once a New Orleans hooker ), who was able to recommend a service provider in the area to bribe the BP quartermasters into setting some aside for us. I call it, “sluts for suits”

Hey – it’s not like they were providing them to clean-up workers, is it?

Well, the Freeperati have had their own spin on the BP oilmageddon since the git-go, and it’s as accurate and insightful as one would expect..

Here we go!

Black Panthers cause oil well blowout!‏

BP’s
Relief Well to Halt Oil Spill Will Cost $100MM

As part of the company’s well intervention efforts to shut off an oil
leak at the Macondo well site in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, operator BP
will drill a relief well that is estimated to cost approximately $100
million, the company’s chief executive confirmed Tuesday.

Operating
alongside the U.S. Coast Guard and the Minerals Management Service, BP
has launched a comprehensive, pre-approved oil spill response plan
following the April 22 sinking of Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon
semisub, roughly 130 miles southeast of New Orleans in almost 5,000 ft.
of water.

Additionally, BP is pursuing other options to halt the
oil leak, which includes the use of ROVs to activate the blowout
preventer and the construction of a canopy over the pipeline connected
to the well that would gather the 1,000 bbls/day of oil that is leaking
at the source.

“The safety of the people working offshore is our
top priority and the improved weather has created better conditions for
our response,” said BP Group Chief Executive Tony Hayward. “This,
combined with the light, thin oil we are dealing with has further
increased our confidence that we can tackle this spill offshore.”

According
to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) experts
participating in the spill response, the spill is “very thin” and
consists of 97 percent sheen, BP said in a statement Tuesday.

BP
will soon commence drilling operations on the first relief well using
Transocean’s GSF Development Driller III, which arrived on the scene
late Monday. The relief well could potentially take up to three months
to drill, Hayward said. BP will also drill a second relief well using
Transocean’s Discoverer Enterprise drillship, which is en route to
Mississippi Canyon Block 252. Both relief wells will permanently secure
the Macondo exploration well.

Macondo Prospect On location in
Mississippi Canyon Block 252 in the Gulf of Mexico, the Deepwater
Horizon recently concluded exploration drilling on the Macondo prospect.
According to the Minerals Management Service, BP filed a permit to
temporarily abandon the well, on which the Deepwater Horizon commenced
drilling in February 2010. With a proposed depth of 20,000 ft, the
exploration well was drilled to just over 18,000 ft.

Deepwater
Horizon According to RigLogix, the Deepwater Horizon, an RBS-8D-designed
dynamically-positioned semisub, was rated to work in water depths up to
10,000′ and with a rated drilling depth capacity of 30,000′. The rig
was under long-term contract to BP through September 2013 with a current
dayrate in the low-$500s. The Deepwater Horizon was built in Ulsan,
South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries at a cost of approximately $365
million and entered service in 2001.

The very first –the very first – Freeper response?

I still think that Obama hired a crack team of the new black
panthers and sabotaged that rig

A “crack” team of Black Panthers

Ho ho! Freeper humour, ladies and gentlemen!

You see, negroes all smoke crack, especially the ones who use their time machines to jump from the mid-1960s to here, and blow up oil rigs! I get it!

Hmm – how’d she get in there?

Ok, fun’s fun, but do we have any non conspiracy fruitcakes at FR?

One has to wonder when the last drill rig explosion and oil spill
took place just after a positive vote for off shore drilling.

Maybe not.

Of course, the Freeperati are laser-focused on the horrible implications this has for America:

Well, here comes another spike in price.

I
have been wondering about this. Envirowhackos would gladly kill people
(not to mention an ecosystem or two) to make a political point. Wonder
if there is any way to investigate this?

There is a large Blowout Preventer on the sea floor.

It is
multistage and certainly not cheap.

True.

It did not fully actuate and
when robot submarines tried to manual actuate it has not shut off the
flow.

Also true.

My personal speculation is that it nearly closed, but not
completely.The flow rate from the well is only 29 gpm, or about 3
garden hoses.
It seems to me that it is partial shut off.

Fire hoses, more like. I’d hate to see your water bill.

    Who the FUCK shoots a Corgi? I mean, a pit bull, trained as a guard dog or a fighter, could be dangerous, but what’s the Corgi gonna do, yappily annoy you to death? Lick you into submission? Conquer your defenses with its stumpy cuteness? Jesus.

    At the start of the raid article (occured 90 miles south of my location), I was wondering how long it would take the freepers to tie the situation into Mexican immigration. Looks like they did it fairly fast.
    And, BTW, Columbia, MO, home of University of Missouri, is a college town of fairly nice size (but Mizz U is Huge). A progressive island in the sea of Missouri.
    They are also one of the towns re-assessing the use of Tasers by police after some high profile Taser deaths. Quite interesting in that civilians with absolutely no licensing can purchase a Taser (complete with designer colors such as hot pink), and as folks using tasers have been arrested for use of a deadly weapon.
