Pat Boone Leads a Tea Party Rally in Beverly Hills – Encore, Encore!

A Variety (the actors, artists, entertainment guide to all) article detailed earlier this week that “Pat Boone Plans Tea Party Rally in Beverly Hills“. If you don’t know Pat Boone, then you just aren’t interested or interesting!

The Beverly Hills Tea Party movement is against excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Constitutionally Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility, and Free Markets. http://beverlyhillsteaparty.com

Even the LA Times touted the upcoming event in “Say what? The Tea Party schedules a rally in Beverly Hills“. The tide has turned and churned and Patriotism no matter what your occupation, religious affiliation, income level, race, or political party is on full display within the Tea Party Movement.

Oil Leaks, Oil Seeps, Oil Sneaks, Oil Creeps

Look at the Movement and Quick SEC Filings, hmm? What about just one person’s activities? What about mentioning that there has been a problem of oil leaking/seepage since April 30th, 2010 (and various other problems further back as documented here and here) that is NOT notated strongly anywhere on Diamond Offshore’s Site? Just because the oil rig, itself, is not leaking, does not mean there is no culpability or responsibility for the leaking that is ongoing, as that is the specific job assigned to the Ocean Saratoga Rig!

“…The rig is under contract to Taylor Energy Company LLC and engaged in the process of plugging and abandoning wells damaged when a Taylor Energy production platform was toppled during Hurricane Ivan in 2004…”

Jog anyone’s memory? Anyone? Anyone?

March 11, 2005 – LLOG Exploration Company (Operator) & Diamond Offshore (Contractor)

Pollution: 500 bbl Crude Oil/ Condensate: None
Refined Petroleum: None Synthetic Oil Fluids*: None
Chemicals: 500 bbl Calcium Bromide Completion Fluid Events: Pollution & Accidental Riser Disconnect
MMS Investigation Report: Completed 9-May-2005 Activity: Development/Production
Lease: G24154 Operation: Completion
Area: Green Canyon Causes: Human Error
Block: 157 Distance to Shore: 100 Miles
Rig: Diamond Ocean Saratoga Water Depth: 2,618 Feet

Remarks: On March 11, 2005, at 1300 hours the wellhead connector on the BOP Stack on the Diamond Offshore Ocean Saratoga semi-submersible rig (working for LLOG Exploration in Green Canyon 157) inadvertently unlatched due to improperly connected Blowout Preventer control lines. The well had production casing set, a subsea tree installed and the last in-hole operation prior to the incident occurring was to perforate the production interval. This is an oil producing reservoir and the rig was in 2,614 feet of water. Upon the Wellhead Connector unlatching, the differential pressure between the weighted completion fluid in the riser and the normal seawater pressure caused the stack to separate from the wellhead profile on the top of the subsea tree. The fluid level in the riser equalized to the seawater hydrostatic. Approximately 500 barrels of calcium chloride completion fluid (14.2 ppg calcium chloride salt water) were released from the riser.

In summary due to poor procedures and human errors the hoses were crossed on the wellhead connector for the Yellow Pod circuit. Several opportunities to correct the above errors were missed. The hoses to the Yellow Pod were not installed properly and were not detected during the shipyard shake out inspection. The Subsea Function Test Checklist Procedures failed to detect the improper operation when testing the BOPs in the moon pool. A further opportunity to detect improper operation of the connector was missed during the landing and latch up operations on the seafoor. A miscommunication between the Subsea Engineer and the assistant Subsea Engineer during the function verification process as to the position of the latch indicator on the H-4 type connector when switching from the Blue to the Yellow Pod was a contributing factor to the cause of this incident.

In Arkansas Our Local Media Failure Emulates the Rest of the Lame Stream Media

Our local paperBenton Couriergoes YOKEL! on the Tea Party Movement!

The offensive opinion piece:

DUKE: Discourse? Not on Tea Party agenda E-mail
Friday, 14 May 2010

There are people in this world who my mother likes to call “agin-ers.” To paraphrase, if yer fer it, they’re agin it!
There was a guy like that in our church. Every time the church had to vote on any sort of business, we would affirm by saying “aye.” Invariably, there would be one “nay.” Always.
I’d like to think this guy — who is probably long dead and gone — would be a good candidate for the Tea Party. In the immortal words of Jerry Seinfeld, “Who are these people?”
Well, basically they’re agin-ers. Nothing wrong with being against something. In fact, you have to take a stand when you feel led to do so. If not, something like a church or a government can run right over you.
But what is becoming more and more disturbing is that not only are the bulk of these people against everything, they don’t really stand FOR anything. Actually that’s not true. They stand for this: Keep off my lawn, and stay out of my business. If someone needs help, they can help themselves. (Now that’s the definition of compassion.)
The most recent case of the Tea Partiers becoming a force of “agin-ness” was during the Utah Republican Party Convention, where longtime conservative Sen. Bob Bennett was ousted by the TPers in favor of two men who have never held elected office. Bennett has very high ratings from the American Conservative Union and the National Rifle Association, and he had strong endorsements from fellow Republican Mitt Romney. His offense? He dared to work across the aisle with Democrats.
Shock and disdain!
With the Tea Partiers in Utah, if you are even caught talking to a Democrat, you are suspect. Let’s just remember that this was a conservative in Utah — and he wasn’t conservative enough for these people! Fellow Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is one of the most powerful conservatives in Washington, is probably glad his term isn’t up until 2012. Maybe he thinks the Mayans are right, and he won’t have to run again.
So bravo to the anti-everything crowd. This is a group that takes Social Security, drives on interstates, benefits from government in so many shapes and forms that they can’t count it, but they would rather act like they don’t need anything.
The majority of TPers come from the central part of the United States, an area that was practically saved from ruin by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Tennessee Valley Authority. But those are the enemy. That’s the way they see it.
And what could result is much more than a locked-out government like we saw in the mid-’90s. This is a group that sees anyone who doesn’t agree with them not as someone to debate with, not as someone to engage in political discourse. These fellow representatives who have differences of policy are only one thing: The Enemy.
Shake their hand? No way. Exchange Christmas cards? Are you kidding? This could be the beginning of a Civil Cold War that could stretch on for years.
Seems like if the leaders of the Tea Party had their way, every person left of them would be quarantined for the foreseeable future. It certainly looked that way during the health care vote when several lawmakers of African American heritage were pelted with racial epithets.
And we can’t discount that part of this uprising is racial. There is the slimmest of a fraction of TPers who are not white, usually enough to count on one hand. But it seems that it is more because of a region. Obama is a president from the north. He is well-educated and from the big city. He is an academic and a lawyer. That scares the pants off most TPers.
At least the past three Democratic presidents — Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson — were white men from Southern states. Although they may see the world differently, they understood the lay of the land. But not this guy. Not to these people.
It is the easiest thing for the TPers to paint Obama as the enemy. He had a different path to the presidency than most. But where Carter, Clinton and Johnson saw a willingness to work on key issues together, Obama may see a Republican base that is too scared to upset this fringe part of the party to make any concessions about anything.
So working together towards something beneficial to all may become a thing of the past. And that seems to be the way the Tea Partiers want it.

No Tea Party is Too Small – Year 2

This Year Beginning to Gather

Last Year Notes From A Tea Party Participant

No Tea Party is Small

The Spirit of the Tea Party Movement hasn’t changed in the last year… the only change in our country has been the enormous amount of debt, job losses, and tax increases. I am proud to be a Patriotic American after the Historic Tea Party protests of 4/15/2009 and now 4/15/10 across this country. I am currently living in the small town of Benton, Arkansas. We had a Tea Party. It was grand and right at the Post Office as tax payers were sending off their payments. People waved and even decided to join our local Tea Party chapter Saline County Tea Party.

Once again, there was no town or city’s event that was too small. All stood for the greater good of the United States of America. People of different means, parties, ages, religions, and races continue to come together to protest the outrageous government spending and reassigning of taxes resting upon every American’s shoulders and their descendants’ shoulders.

Although the Tea Party does not endorse candidates, there was a twist this year, as several candidates came out, stood with, and supported our event. Welcome Patriots!

Most of all just have fun and remember your “Tax Day TEA Party Checklist“!

It’s the kickoff to the next election season with full force. Walk, talk and carry yourselves like Conservatives. Let the Liberal Progressives Socialists know we stand together, while all they can muster is a pot shot of lies. They can continue to gloat until the November 2010 vote and beyond. The Tea Party Movement is alive and thriving and never tiring of supporting, protecting and defending the United States Constitution.
