Absence from the blog, oil spill, etc.

Posted: 2nd June 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Uncategorized

I’ve been absent from the blog for quite a while now.

As I’ve said before, I’ve got a new job and a new baby, both of which prevent me from blogging as much in various ways.

Also, to be honest, there really just hasn’t been too much in the news of interest to me lately.  Maybe I’ve just been out of the loop, but just about one of the only things I am hearing/reading about lately is the oil spill, and I really just don’t have a whole lot to say about that.

I’m by no means an environmentalist, but I do care a lot about nature and our environment, so yea I do think the oil spill sucks.  It sucks that all of the animals are being pointlessly harmed, it sucks that the fishing trade is being harmed, it sucks that the ocean, our beaches, marshes, etc. are being damaged.  It all sucks.

I do support drilling for our own oil though, as I dislike the dependence that we have on foreign oil.  So it’s sort of like a “hey, what can ya do?” situation for me.  I hate that this disaster is occurring, but it was an accident that occurred while we were doing something that is important and necessary for us as a country.  Hopefully there will be new technology in the future that will be helpful in preventing things like this in the future (and creating a new energy source as well?).

Anyway, I haven’t stopped blogging forever, or forgotten about my site, I just have been busy and a bit disinterested as of late.

    It’s good to hear you back, congratulations on your new baby and for having a new job. But sad to know that a lot of animals are harmed by oil spill. That’s why i agree with you, creating new source of energy is a big to help our environment to prevent disaster like this to happen again in the future. This is a great article to read.
