I work or am seeking work in the onshore oilfields. I also dive and I go to the beach and I have some common sense. We all know that raw crude and gas bellowing into the water, surfacing into our atmosphere is not good. I should say its not as good as the quality of air we breathe without the gasses and crude surfacing. Did BP cause this, well they are majority holder and yes it falls to BP. Do I work for or with or sleep with any BP employees or Corporate, NO. Once you have an accident, tada, its reality! If you lost your arm trying to save your wedding ring at the local Strip club toilet, well face reality, your wife is gonna know! What can we do... we can sit back and dwell over it for years and years on end or, like any Natural Disaster, we repair, pick up and start tomorrow out with a new positive look. Some of you think its the end of the WORLD. Tar balls from a tar mat, if you saw 5 and picked up 5 the tomorrow in that spot you will see ZERO and you just cleaned up that part of the beach I didnt.

Oil on the beach and Oil on the beach is different. You had oil in your hands, if it was a barrel of oil on your hands its way different. But Media like the dramatic the BEACHES are covered in oil and birds are suffering. Well the old man on cervantes under the vidock is covered in filth and suffereing too but no one will come to his aid. Rather they spend countless dollars protecting a bird. When you catch a fish and throw him into a cooler do you hold that fish and tell him it will be fine, you will not die in vain. Hell no, its friggin food! Let a sea gull, one of billions at the SRC landfill become covered in oil, call out the Army. Spend a million bucks on that sucker. While the old man still awaits help or some form of assistance under the vidoc.

Ask yourself today, WHY IS FUEL SO HIGH.....

Because our dependency on petroleum has become so great we can not manufacture, eat or breathe without some by product of crude oil and natural gas. The other issue of the cost is we Import millions of barrels daily to support our habits. Now we depend on others to take care of us, that my friend is bad news! When you depend on others its just a matter of time before they can control you. Without deep water drilling we will remain a puppet. Without the movements in onshore drilling we will remain a puppet. So how do we get the strings cut.... Find a way to lower the consumption of crude products. COMMON SENSE!

Should we run out on the beach call WEAR TV3 and video the oil collections or the new discoveries you found. Nope, what we should do is support any clean up of the tar balls, get commercial fishermen back in business, and round up millions of tourist to stimulate the economy right here on the panhandle. If you continue to hollar SHARK you will continue to be part of the problem that keeps them away. Show pictures of hundreds of shells laying around, show some winter skin burning to be tan, positive thinking creates positive outcome!

Gloom and doom I could care less to read. Go to CNN with that, they have pages of BS and nothing telling us Susie Q won the 5th grade spelling B contest. We are loosing focus on priorities when Lindsey Loser Lohan and Charlie Junky Sheen rule the head lines. I wanna hear about CLAY-DOH spearing a 100lb Amberjack and getting his ass whooped in the process!

THATS NEWS!

BH, Your example using a transient, whom most likely by choice, lives under the vidoc for a free ride and is probably offered more work than most active job seekers is a pretty bland example....Lets try this one, a young waiter at a beach grill gets engaged in early 2010, he plans to have a beach wedding in July...Sadly due to the "leak" the young man his wife to be postpone the beach wedding, the one she has always dreamed of, until spring of 2011 in hopes it will all be over, oil well capped and cleaned up...In a rotten twist the young lady is killed in a auto accident a week after the original wedding date was planned when she may have been on her honeymoon far and away from this place. Had the "leak" never happened she may be here today, just as many others lives were affected by the BP disaster...There is no way to tell, fact is:

BP has taken days,weeks,months from ALL of us!! we cannot get them back and if it didn't cost you anything in loss ...It for dam sure has cost everyone on the Gulf Coast "days of their lives" that they can never get back. Noone can say what kind of year, 2010, would have been.. had it been a normal year....we were on an economic spike coming out of a recession when it all happened, now the cocksuckers at BP are going to deny up to 80% of claims for any BS reason they can find....Spare me Sealark , you are the one exception to the rule, why exactly did you get a claim anyways? I can list hundreds of people with claim issues that all have legit claims, not that anyone living here should have to prove anything for the sacrifices of time WE ALL made last year..Time we can never get back.

You have made "dum seagull" comments throughout this whole event, you act as if us locals are idiots and have no knowledge of the wildlife affected...ofcourse your humanity logic has you spending most your time under the vidocs so let me tell you ....Ospreys, storm petrels, gannets, shearwaters, scoters, brown pelicans, willets, black skimmers, herring gulls, bonapartes gulls, and the countless other hundreds of shorebirds, pelagic species of brids, waterfowl and of course your favorite landfill lubber the one and ONLY "Laughing Gulls" are all getting a chuckle out of that BS.

I have NEVER been opposed to offshore drilling before minus of the coast of Florida, why? Because working on commercial fishing boats for many of my younger years showed me that I love to see the sky full of stars with no lights from rigs hindering my view...Yeah I would gladly pay 5$ a gallon before they drill my coast, for that matter until there is a system in place, if anything more rigorous safety checks to prevent this from ever happening again...You know we have been told for 30 years teh gulf was pretty much disaster proof and anything that happened would be contained quickly posing no real threat.

Now you may think I am one idiot but the fact is I am pretty sure I speak for the majority on my concerns and will remain opposed to new exploration until the the industry is secure. I know the media blows it out of proportion and have been telling people wait to see how much that charter phone rings after the 1 year anniversary of the MS252/DWH when the media acts as if all the oil is still there...I know its BS, but the effect on the local economy may not be so inclined to agree. I don't hate anyone or the industry but have seen the sacrifice given by many non-industry folks over the past year and I do not want to go through that BS ever again.

Have fun in Brazil, I also heard they found a monster pocket off of Argentina and those places are loaded with hot women so quit yer bitching, we will still be here dealing with this BS.

WTf, You ask exactually how did i get my claim! If you have read my posts i clearly stated how. Again i presented 3 years of tax returns and 3 years of trip tickets for ALL of my fishing. No excuses or i don't have any paperwork to substanuate my claim. In other words,What they wanted to see.

Good thing you had 3 years in tax returns and hopefully you didn't have a banner 3 months in early 2010 or you got jacked...Better yet be thankful you aren't someone who had health, financial or any other issues over the past 3 years causing you to have 3 had bad years in taxes. Or hell, its a real good thing you didn't put $30,000.00 into a start up charter or commercial boat a first year operation and get denied because you have no tax documents from previous years....There is a multitude of issues/reasons basing someones taxs returns on their present and FUTURE losses is total BS...you want to sell out for quick pay go for it, that is what they are expecting...Its probably banned to do that in the UK, just like using corexit.

I hope everyone gets what they are after. All i have ever posted is what i have seen or figured has happened from the spill. And yes i even submitted my trip.ticketts for the first months of 2010 showing a good start to the year until the clousure to fishing. I beleive they figured that into payments of loss. I was so pleased i did the quick final. I really hope everyone gets what they want. Just keep up the fight and dont take no for an answer.

There are approximately 5000 oil and gas wells along the Gulf of Mexico coast from Mexico to Alabama. There have only been two disasters in the last 30 years. We're tied with the Mexicans on that score. I'm all for drilling off the Florida coast too. Think of all the fuel that could be saved if we had our own rigs to attract and hold fish 40 or 50 miles south of Destin. It's 98 miles from the East Pass to Petronis.
