ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insight on the governance of the U.S. with regards to its debt, the BP explosion, and political conflicts. The author says that despite U.S. President Barack Obama's promise that he had established a moratorium on new off-shore drillings, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) has continued to give permits and doing minimal analysis on environment. He says that as with the BP explosion, the mega-corporations' interests take precedence over the nation's governance.
