The voracious Dutch vessels, for example, continuously suck up vast quantities of oily water, extract most of the oil and then spit overboard vast quantities of nearly oil-free water. Nearly oil-free isn't good enough for the U.S. regulators, who have a standard of 15 parts per million -- if water isn't at least 99.9985% pure, it may not be returned to the Gulf of Mexico.So, because 99% pure isn't good enough, it's better to leave the water totally polluted. This is insane. This is a Dumbocracy. Rule by the imbecilariat. Totalistupidism.
Words fail me. I hope the ballot-box won't in 2012.
