In one point it would be wise not to speak to much about it, hide it cover it up like they want us too, or we could speak really loud and let these oil junkies know we wont allow it....Not In Our Gulf Baby...

Remind the public that the gulf is ruined forever, the seafood is poison, the beaches are toxic waste dumps carpeted with tar balls and dead animals.

If we hurry, we can head off all the spring breakers and the summer vacation crowd before they make their reservations. After all there's no need to risk bringing little Johnny and Suzie down here and have them wind up with lingering health effects for the rest of their life now is there?

Let's get on the ball here!!! I'm looking forward to another summer without all those pesky tourist around. As long as BP's picking up the tab who need customers?
Good post

How would you propose it WAS supposed to be handled? I could get into pages and pages worth of arguments, but why? It's pretty much like talking to a wall.

You know, I'm not a scientist but looking at it realistically.....every time I fill up my car, truck or tanks.....i'm exposed to gasoline fumes. If the stuff is that bad.....maybe we all need to get rid of internal combustion engines.

We'll also have to quit eating smoked BBQ, grilled steaks, blackened grouper, charbroiled hamburgers, and anything else cooked over an open fire. All of these things contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) at levels, that if they were regulated by the EPA instead of the FDA, would be considered hazardous waste. After "steak night" you'd have to wear a fully encapsulating suit just to take out your garbage, ".

Because, we want a small government, no wait, I want it big enough to handle a spill if the company can't....
