Capitalism at Work

The oil spill is good news for Galveston and the Texas Gulf coast!


Where’s my Nashville flooding story?  Where is it?

    So what is the danger to the Texas coast? I know they are afraid of spread to Florida, but I’ve heard no mention of Texas (I really hope the Aransas/Gulfport area is OK. I have good memories of birding there)

    • None, so far. It seems that the weather patterns are driving the oil to the east.

      I think it would be a mistake to try to capitalize on the Texas coasts being safe as a marketing tool.

      If it’s not affecting Galveston, it surely won’t affect the Port Aransas area.

    Is your state tourism bureau actually doing that?
    Low class. Not at all neighborly

  3. Not the state, just the local media.

    When Galveston doesn’t have enough tourists, they whine. When they have trouble with too many tourist, they whine.

    When it looks like the oil spill will move away from Galveston, they are hopeful that more tourists will come.

    I expect them to start whining about it any day now — unless the new local media theme takes hold — which is that the oil spill will threaten Galveston. And then they will whine.

    In other words, the spill doesn’t affect the whine factor from Galveston and the local media will do anything to get viewers.

    That’s all.

    And remember: this is Texas. I love my state, but with the wingnuts in charge, neighborly is not something I would apply or expect.
