To the 16 yr old who lost his sperrys. I tell you what,.... I will buy you a new pair. On the other hand,.... you probably dont want them, or any others due to the possibility that the rubber soles are a petroleum product, and possibly linked to BP.
I don't care about the shoes all I was saying is that it wouldn't of happened if the oil spill didn't happen and that it is BP fault.

It WILL take time for the oil to completely disappear below the surface. Should they have used as much corexit as they did? Probably not. In the big scheme, there is no realistic way that little amount of Corexit could have effected TRILLIONS of gallons of circulating sea water.

We had a year of bad fishing and a year of bad tourism. The next year it picked right back up again. The local fishermen are not struggling because of the BP oil spill. They are struggling because of absuurd fishing regulations.

If you donít like BP then the logical decision is to not support ANY oil companies. Because they ALL have accidents in their history. Stop driving cars, buying plastics, and by all means donít put any loved ones in the hospital to get that new heart or hip replacement. Guess what those are made from? Oh ya, and donít even THINK about fishing any oil rigs. That would make you a hypocrite! For goodness sakes!

Oh and to the 16 year old, stop, you are not adding to any personal credibility by arguing about topics you have no experience or logical views about. We all lost the ability to fish for a while, and Iím sorry your "kicks" got dirty. Some families lost a loved one from the rig explosion. I think that constitutes as a real loss.

I am going to fish my butt off this summer. If I see any apples falling from the sky I will make sure the PFF is the first to know, but until then, I hope you all enjoy what amazing gifts we have been given. We live in the best place in the world, get busy living!
no lives wouldyou of been lost if BP didn't cut corners on the safety issues.I m sure alot of rigs do but theirs is the one that ruined the gulf.I don't really care about the shoes and yes they ate made of petroleum but im not going to support them for ruining our gulf.I m sure I have some petroleum products that have BP oil in them but im not putting their gas in my car.

Im not sure if a hurricane will stir it up because of how deep it is but its going to be on our shores in a few years.

Pourman.you are right on its going to get alot worse before it gets better.

Kenton, your post is dead on. Very well said. Jeff, I bite my tounge alot too, especially knowing just how deep the industry is entrenched in our everyday lives. It's really very simple, we use and consume petroleum based products on every level of our lives. 99% of folks are absoloutely clueless just how much. We use them, therefore we assume the risks. Sorry folks, can't have your cake and eat it too. Sure, the accident was truly epic. DWH was a very bad deal. I could sit here and quote comparisons to other things, (like river runoff), and other polluters, but why? You get it or you don't. Chicon, the ammount of arrogance in your post is amazing. One thing is very obvious, you don't ACTUALLY have a clue. You may be a well educated, well off, and well groomed, but, NO teenager is "wise". Some are a little smarter, even more careful, but wise....nawww. You proved that just in some of your posts. I'm sure you may have read some on the DWH spill as did many others. You may even understand some of what you read. But, I'll give you an example. A big to-do was made about methane and methane crystals. What is your opinion? After all, it was a big issue. How bout this. Where does most of Floridas electricity come from? Sure, you can Google an answer. But, understand what you are reading? I doubt it. How bout all the jobs moved out when the rigs shut down? Who do you really impact not buying BP gas? (Mr and Mrs Owner), thats all. I'll say it one more time, DWH was tragic and awful all the way across the board. Historically speaking, it has happened before and will probably happen again. Does BP or anyone else WANT it to happen? I mean, you really think so? But, we live in a free society, don't let BP get any of your parents money, fair enough. You certainly have that right.

"quote" Can anyone really believe that BP has done all they can to right their wrong? Eleven people died and billions in damages to property and small businesses because they skipped safety procedures and prevention techniques. Sure, theyre giving payouts. Sure, they're responding when oil is found. If they were really concerned they would have cleaned up those tar mats and not sank the oil with dispersants nor tried to tell people that some super bacteria ate all of the oil after just one month.

Its just an out of sight, out of mind technique. They care about their balance sheets, not righting their wrong."quote"


Well they believed George bush saying that Iraq was holding weapons of mass destruction and supported al qaida. (so much for spell check) They believed Obama was/is a musalem with a conspiracy to import a non-american into the white house. People will believe what they want to believe. My wife knows her brother is a liar but he tells her what she wants to hear and she believes him. Most people don't want to know the truth because it will show them to be lazy, stupid, and/or just plain greedy if they were forced to acknowledge what they allow our politicians to get away with.
