Who Built These Barges and Where are Your Fire Extinguishers?
The Coast Guard needed to confirm that there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board, and then it had trouble contacting the people who built the barges.
Excuse me? Were the barges built well before the current problem? Didn't the Coast Guard already have that information? Can this be anything other than higher headquarters directed stalling? It has to be intentional because it is too ludicrous to be simple bungling.
Watch the video, then do the math. Sixteen barges for x number of days sucking up oil at a rate of 4,000 gallons an hour per barge. That's a lot of oil, ain't it?
Let's get cap and trade passed to fix the problem! What do you think?
