I find the audacity of it infuriating. What are these clowns thinking? They totally disregard all advice that it is not safe to drill so deep; they
ignored advice from their own workers that disaster is but days away, and when they finally (get what they perhaps wanted) and they pump the sea full
of oil, they also add a lovely corex death cocktail into our ocean. So, man is not a sea creature, it is not where we live, and that makes it ok to
totally disregard the fact that it is the natural habitat of thousands and thousands of species.
Man, I love the sea. (Gave my first steps on a wild wild beach on the north coast of South Africa, close to Mozambique border, parents were deap sea
divers, and camped in the wild great untamed by the coast all my life.)
NOW I am livired! BP is trying to convince people that you can have a lovely holiday by the sea where the oil is still pumping out the ocean floor,
and corex has caused the death of (how many????) thousands of sea creatures and people as well.
What does BP have to do with the Gulf besides causing one of the world's worst man-made disasters? Why, appointing themselves as the Gulf's new PR
agent! BP is exerting much effort and advertising funds to bring more tourists to the Gulf.
In August, they aired two TV commercials called “Best Place” and “Great Vacation.” They have uploaded 28 YouTube videos, many featuring local
business owners and select residents. The “Great Vacation” ad depicts four spokespeople from four different areas lightheartedly battling it out
for who has the best vacation spot.
They are trying to uphold the Gulf as the best vacation resort yet. Supposedly, 2011 was the best tourism season. Who are included in these tourism
BP has spent $92 million dollars in the last three years for tourism alone. The ads are meant to inform people that it is okay to swim in the
“clean” waters and eat the food. What are they not showing in the ads?
How about the deaths and sickness of the cleanup crew hired by them when they promised to help fix the local economy. The sickness that ensued for the
fisherman, swimmers, and sea life after the toxic Corexit was dumped. That it did nothing to actually rid the Gulf of the bubbling brown cocktail.
That they paid millions to law enforcement, churches, and other organizations for a “boost” but neglected to pay any ill health claims. Or how
about that the clean-up contracts stipulated years of work, as well as a coordinated cover-up plan.
Look, many folks depend on tourism in the Gulf area and I don't want to disparage them here. But in all seriousness, it is still may not be safe and
BP knows it. Given their recent history of a vast cover up, it's impossible to know for sure.
In fact, there are many reports that the leak is still bubbling oil. Yet, BP seems to feel that buying public opinion is a better investment than
actually cleaning up the mess and compensating the people who've gotten sick and lost their entire way of life.
Public Relations cannot cover up the damage that many experts claim will continue for decades. It appears to be just another chapter in the "Big Fix"
Clean up advert:
I am trying to imbed the vids, my frist time. Not sure if it will work. So, in case it does not work please use this link: www.activistpost.com... directly to the page and scroll down to the vids.

Thank you so much for sorting that out. When I go to Vid:youtube to insert the vid, I copy and paste the URL into that little text box that comes up.
Is that correct?
Previous poster posted a video on how to do this, but my data is low, so I don't want to waste it. (I don't have uncapped internet access, I buy
data bundles, usually 1 or 3 gigs, and when they are used up I have to buy more.)
I didn't know BP was trying to expand its business to tourism. Guess maybe they are trying to make up for all the trouble they have caused by
inviting people to their "Oil bath and massage parlors... right on the beach!"
They could care less wether people go down there for sun and fun. They are only concerned with cleaning up their image and are bombing the MSM and
Internet with ads to that end.

Butting in. You did good except... only paste the YouTube "ID Number" between brackets. The "ID Number" is everything between the equals
"=" signs in the URL. See how others do stuff by clicking "quote" next to "reply to" in posts.
I've been seeing these TV commercials for a while now. I saw one a couple of days ago and it pissed me off to no end. I believe they are making them
because of some court ordered restitution. I'd like to see that same commercial with tar balls on the beach and people throwing-up their sea food,
etc. Next we'll be seeing vacation commercials for Fukushima Japan. They are already making Chernobal seem like a wildlife paradise on PBS shows,
even though the scientists take precautions and are only allowed short exposure times. This sort of thing is beyond my comprehension.
