When the EPA told BP to stop dumping the corexit, BP told them no and kept right on doing it.
So the government bowed out and let BP do what it wanted. Yet if you or I were to dump a quart of motor oil in a storm drain, we would be fined big money and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
The whole time this disaster was happening, my husband had the live cam showing the blown well on his computer, and he stated that they were handling it all wrong from the beginning, and the way they kept playing with different caps and such was an obvious failure. My husband's family has been dealing with oil since the 1940s when his family drilled some successful wells in west Texas, so he understands oil and wells.
He feels it was done on purpose, to sabotage the Gulf, and I have to agree with him. By allowing the oil to flow unchecked, and then dumping a crap-ton of corexit into the waters, BP effectively killed the shrimping and seafood industry in the area.
Once it is deemed unfit for human consumption, the oil companies can drill, baby, drill, without any more worries about some pesky family shrimping business suing. It will be a dead zone, so the government cannot deny permits for deep-water drilling for fear of damaging the environment, because it's already destroyed.
Diabolical, evil, and totally on purpose.

You're right. You are absolutely right. How do you know? OK, let me put it this way, you're in a bar and a guy comes and sits next to you. He starts chatting and then offers you a drink. Not from behind the bar where you can see the liquids in the bottles that people have been supping from all evening. No, he produces it from inside his coat and places it in front of you, free of charge. Are you going to drink it? Maybe you take a sip, maybe it tastes exactly like bourbon from behind the bar.
Tell me that you're not going to think, even for a moment, "Is their anything in this that could be harmful to me?"
This guy may be innocent, he might not be. Think of that that guy with the plaster cast on his hand who is asking you to help him load his furniture into the back of his van. He may well be totally innocent and looking for help, but, once you're inside and being battered over the head it is a bit late to consider whether you have just put yourself into a dangerous situation. "It puts the lotion on the skin or it gets the hose again!"
OK, they are extreme examples, but the point is, we don't know whether genetically modified foods will cause us or the environment any harm. It could be harm that manifests in 25 years. Are you aware that smoking was once considered as a 'healthy' thing to do? Yeah, it seems way out there, but it was. GM needs time and not just research.

I agree with the above poster that there is an entity with a larger objective in mind.
As I see it, that objective is the complete and utter destruction of the United States.
The monster is so big that it can no longer be controlled.

Stay away from Gulf seafood? I live on Mobile bay and recently purchased 100 lbs of gulf shrimp right off of the boat in Bayou La Batre. Guess what? They were FINE.
This weekend they are holding a big "mullet toss" (yes throwing fish is a sport down here LOL) and seafood festival at the Flora/Bama Club (on the Florida, Alabama line)...everyone is reporting good fresh food and a good time. (www.al.com)
No deformities or problems (I read ATS)...I am puzzled, to say the least.
Can you spell c-o-n-s-p-i-r-a-c-y, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Now WHY would "they" post disinformation? Who are "they" and what do "they" have to gain?
Answers or theories, please.
It will be declared a Superfund site so the Govt can have eminent domain over the whole region, and they wont have to pay anyone for their property.edit on 28-4-2012 by lordpiney because: (no reason given)

While it is somewhat old news (April 5 or so) I just read the thread on ATS today about the Navy sinking a radioactive Japanese ghost ship that floated over after the tsunami.
Well, second edit - I checked that thread when it was still fairly new, and hadn't been back on it til after I posted this - It appears that maybe there wasn't any radioactive material on the ship in the first place. So I guess I'm wrong.edit on 29-4-2012 by jacktorrance because: ETA second edit.
