TP#57 The stunning incompetence of progressives that
never had a real job
finally saw some footage on Fox news tonight about why the sawing
was stopped and was stunned by the incompetence shown with
the cutting of the pipe at BP's Deep Water Horizon. If you guys were
not killing the environment your blunders would be comical.
I bet Sarah
Palin, who you like to portray as a hick, has cut down a few trees
in her times, so she would have been able to explain to you some
basic facts about cutting horizontal logs or basically any material
and why what you just tried would not work.
applies to concrete pipe because concrete is great on compression
and bad on tension, which is why you use rebar on concrete ... so
all I can say is
On a tree or
even a pipe (unless it is pre-tensioned concrete) the top is in
tension and the bottom in compression. All these whiz bang BP and
government engineers should know this.
If you want to
cut from the top of a log, you put a cut on the bottom, compression
side. This way when you start the cut from the top the kerf opens
and both halves fall away or at least do not close and bind the saw.
This is especially important if the log or pipe is laying supported
This is why
people that cut trees for a living do a bore cut and even key the
cuts so the log (or pipe) can't roll and close the kerf on the saw.
This is called top bind, for you morons in charge I have included a
link to OSHA's own government web site.

construction worker that has cut a 6x6 with a circular like the one
you were using, would tell you if you cut a piece of material deeper
then the saw blade and the material is supported at both ends, the
kerf will likely close and bind the blade.
anyone in charge in Washington D.C. that has not been a scum sucking
lawyer all their life and done any real work or cut even firewood?
I have pictures of Ronald Reagan cutting wood with a chain saw and
splitting the wood himself. So, I bet both Henry Ford (wood heats
you twice) and Ronald Reagan could have foreseen the folly of
attempting this cut.
Let me guess,
I have not watched the whole video, but, I bet the saw was forced
into the cut once it started to bind or kick back and then once it
got really stuck, you immediately tried to pull it out with force
and probably damaged the saw.
Progressive to do?
Now that Obama
has totally messed up a simple fix, he is going to start blaming
someone else and get what he really wanted all along through his
dithering. Carbon Credits to transfer even more wealth out of the
country in a global warming wealth redistrubtion scheme.
The truth is
you accepted bribes from B.P., just like from Goldman Sachs, and it
has blinded you as I have covered here:
"What Would God think about Obama keeping
Goldman Sachs money?"
Not a lick of
common sense and it sure looks like God isn't going to give it to
you any time soon. So, here is a suggestion for you superior Harvard
progressives for the Gulf Coast's sake.
If you can't
get to the sides or bottom of the pipe at least have enough common
sense to drill relief holes on the sides and near the bottom to saw
through. Then once a major section of pipe is gone, do another cut
of only 1" wide that the saw can power through when it binds,
assuming you are smart enough to keep it level. Then you can try to
put your cap on, while the oil is forcing it's way out of the pipe
which is under 36,000 psi of water pressure.
