Thankyou Nomad....but I get plenty of sunshine AND I have a job. I'll bet you don't live down here, right? I know you meant well with your post, but
imagine if you lived in coastal Louisiana.....wouldn't you be concerned? I know I freaked out a little yesterday, but I saw what I saw and it was
frightening. Oh, and I had a BBQ last weekend, but I don't drink beer LOL!
I hope I didn't cause any offense with my post. I realized after I wrote it how it sounded, and believe me It wasn't the tone I was going after.
Your right I don't live on the Gulf coast, in fact I don't even live in the US, I live in Australia. But living here doesn't make me ignorant to
the implications of what is going on down there.
As time goes on, it's really becoming more and more apparent how much BP and your Government has been lying about this. It's also been apparent to
me that this whole event has the potential to be the so called "Cliff Event" that peak oil activists and economists (the ones with brains) have
warned about for so long.
In other words it has the potential to tip our civilization over the cliff that we have been dancing on. While an oil leak causing such a thing might
sound ludicrous it really makes sense. This whole mega fiasco couldn't have come at a worse time..
Worldwide debt is running rampant, nations are broke, the global economy is imploding, we are literally inching towards a new world war as history is
repeating itself and as superpowers wage resource wars in the middle-east.
America can't afford to deal with this disaster, and certainly neither can Britain. And I do believe IMHO that this will serve, along with more war,
the mortal blow to thew US economy and as a cascading result the world. So I am sorry if I caused offense, I do understand the severity of it. And I
know telling people to get a job is a rather moot point in the face of all I have just said!
What I was trying to say was, if this IS what I have said, you may want to re-prioritize between watching the live feeds (which may be bogus) and
enjoying the outdoors and the company of friends with a beer and some laughs! I'm glad to see your doing just that anyway
Good luck to everyone
