First off people need to get some perspective. Getting arsy because people are using the phrase Oil Spill is ridiculous. The modern definition of an
oil spill is Definition
The fact that YOUR government (the US Government) is so full of Bull Chit and giving out information that even a seven year old would question, is a
result of the US public's irreverence to anything that does not affect their trips to Wall-mart, Dairy Queen and the Mall.
For years the world has been crying out, shouting out even that corporate America is raping the planet with no regard for man, beast or the earth
itself. Now it is happening on your shore line and all of a sudden, we need clean renewable energy and damn those evil Brits for drilling a hole in
our sea floor.
Two of the three companies involved are American; BP (Beyond Petroleum - for those who are concerned about the environmental effects rather than the
political points they can score) is as good as 50% American. Lets not also forget that Lamar McKay, the American chairman of BP America! is in charge
of this fiasco!
Before you complain about someone's actions, consider first why they might be behaving in such a way!
Personally I agree with you, this is an unmitigated disaster which should be dealt with as such; instead we have (you have) an administration that can
only be described as Bat **** Crazy. They have done nothing to clean up this mess, they seem to be going as slow as possible. There is obviously
criminality here and worst of all it is starting to look like they are about to nuke the damn thing
NUKE IT BABY.
It is getting close to the point where you "the people of the US" will have to go out onto the street d strike like they did in Poland. Everyone
refuses to go to work shut down the Gulf Coast until they start to actually do something. if you don't and you all just wait to see what happens then
you have no right to complain. it's like the people who say "Yeah I don't vote no point" and then spend the next four years bitching about the
people they did not vote for or against.
Get organised, get on the streets & get some action!
