I'm curious and frustrated at the same time. The MSM has about a 30 second sound byte on this disaster and never never shows explicit photos like this nor talk about the implications of such a catastrophe. This drives me nuts


And,...

Is it really only BP who is given the task to figure this out? Why the hell isn't every nation involved? This is not just a Gulf issue, this is a global issue. Why can't these politicians see that?



I would be surprised if the MSM actually DID tell us everything that happened, and were gosh darn honest journalist. Congress doesn't want to upset the people who give them money, one of which is big oil corps. So they'll keep bending over for them, and crapping on us, because well...this is America.

And I am with you, I am sick of the undercoverage of this ordeal.

Yup. He is the third horseman holding scales. I think there is supposed to be food shortages according to the text. So if this is correct, then it could possibly be the start.
Probably not but interesting to think about.
Heres a good thread that talks about the horsemen

my point was that the reason why they dont seem to care about these things is because they MUST have backup resources that can aid them in case the common resources get destroyed or compromised. I would be truly surprised if they were totally suicidal to the point they let their hunger for profit eclipse the future potential to enjoy that profit in a world that doesnt recognize what that profit represents, do you get me?

if its all about money....well if the world as we know it gets destroyed then this so called profit is meaningless....and and thats exactly my point.


it simply cannot be only about 'money' as we think of it. Since money is a contrivance to begin with, this whole system must be about far more than profit or 'the bottom line'. If you dont agree thats fine, but this is the way i see it.....

So before we go out and begin using violence against people that had nothing to do with this we need to consider seeking out the root cause of who was paid off in Government AND Industry to allow it to occur in the first place.

And prevent this from every ocuring again.

Plain and simple.

'Nuff said.


We did this after the Exxon Valdez. The end result was a cap on the damages an oil company has to pay.....it really worked, didnt it!

Gotta respect those that are anti-socialism;

They want their privacy to clean it up.

You are very naive. “Après moi le déluge”. Look it up and you will know how they operate.

I am a "new" member here, but longtime lurker....I just have to notice that you joined 3 days ago, and most of your posts seem to minimize this disaster.

Is your opinion paid for?

EDIT: to be clear, this message is for Limegreen, who claims these are pictures of the mississippi river dumping silt into the gulf, among other things relating to how this spill "aint that bad", including an (very) incorrect estimate of the size.

ok, i looked it up....looks like its a reference to louis the 14th and his extravagant lifestyle...which dumped the burden of financing his lavish lifestyle upon the lower classes while the upper classes simply enjoyed and took advantage. What i fail to see is how this relates to the current scheme of things. I was positing that the elite and ruling classes dont care about wat happens to teh superficial operation of things because they have a backup plan for themselves.

it sounds to me like you are saying they are totally suicidal and are pursuing their financial lusts regardless of the cost to other things. But like i said....money and similar concepts are INVENTED.....i think it would be naive to think these people are not aware that money is a system invented to control the masses and that for them money need only be used as a way to leverage themselves into better positions where money is no longer needed. The way you seem to be leaning it appears you think they are just as beguiled into thinking money and profit will solve all their woes and desires for security as the common man...and im saying that couldnt be further from the truth.

if being among the elite and most powerful of the earth affords you one thing it must be the secret knowledge that all fiat money systems are only a ruse and a method by which the elite exploit the lower classes to give up more and more of themselves for a pipe dream so the elite can accumulate more actual and real property and power through so called 'legitimate' means.

heres another way to think about it. Suppose as a BP exec i knew that oil was old news and on its way out....but wanting to continue being in the power broker business (since energy is power) maybe i wanted to play a part in how it all went down to shape the future of energy distribution......only this time using another form of energy, say hydrogen instead of oil.....and only this time using a name like 'dyna' instead of 'bp' or watever (rebranding is a great strategy when a company makes an epic failure....the company doesnt actually get dissolved, it just changes its name and 'leadership')

you really gotta use your imagination here....i dont think its useful to simply paint the entire power structure as bein totally suicidal and not caring at all what happens after they do what they do.....of course they care what happens....to themselves and their posterity........

i agree, those photos look like land. Not to mention, no airline actually flies from key west to phoenix. don't get me wrong, i understand that what's going on down there is a huge catastrophe, but I'm not believing those two pictures.

So our planet is kept cool by the gulf stream and also kept warm in balance....So what happens with the balance out of kilter? Kinda makes this video very apt. I pray it doesn't tip the scales this far....

The worst thing about those photos is that they only show the oil that made it to the surface. Most of the oil is now being hit with dispersant at the wellhead, and doesn't rise to the surface (yet). As bad as those pictures are, what's on the ocean floor is significantly worse.

If the combination of oil and dispersants kills plankton, the oceanic chain of life is going to take a huge hit, as are we. It might be the storm we don't see coming until it's already here.

These photos are from a guy on the Boycott BP group on facebook. I was deeply shaken when I viewed the first one. I don't think we will ever know the true extent of the damage. The guy from facebook said his flight was from Key West to Phoenix.

1st photo: sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net...


Imagine if the plane had to make an emergency landing...

I don't think there'd be any survivors even if it managed to land without breaking to pieces. I sure as hell hope I never have to fly- or boat-over that death trap.

Today, I may hug a tree. As a hunter, I'm just sort of numb looking at these pix.

I only know that karma WILL be visiting on everyone responsible for this atrocity. Regardless of who or where they may be.

The "Karma Cops" have no need of a warrant and they are brutal in their justice.

Glad I'm not connected to this thing.



How can you say that your not connected? Everything is connected, and humans depend heavily on the ocean for survival.

well actually its mor likely to cause an ice if it stops the warm currents that keep the earth warm which is extremely likely

Dont feel too angry, the Earth does a far better job of polluting itself then Humans can ever do throughout existence. But I see your point, we should not needlessly pollute anything like this. IT is beyond horrific.
