  • there's a reason the EPA told BP to stop using the chemical disbursements & come up w/ a safer alternative! Like to encourage all of you to boycott BP!

  • Well, why don't you ask Obama? Oh yeah, that's right, he's on vacation.

  • who is this "we" you speak of?
    I'm not going to do a damn thing about it. How's that?
    Hmmm....the people being paid a few dollars to wipe off rocks with paper towels and shovel sand, what else are they going to do? Bathe ducks?
    "we" the country? What is the country going to do? Wait for BP to make some serious decisions, Wait for Transocean to make some serious decisions, Wait for The Jackass to try and figure out soon HE needs to make a decision.
    In answer to your question "we" aren't going to do a damn thing evidently-but wait and watch it on TV or Internet.

  • First, we need a leader with some Cahones. Second, we need BP to take the position of being at fault and in charge. Third, we need to stop blaming the Bush Admin. for everything that happens. This catastrophe happened on the Obama Administrations watch and if they thought the regulations weren't right they had over a year to fix it. All it would have taken was a stroke of the pen. We need to STOP blaming Bush for everything and do whats right for our country and its people. Passing the blame is really getting old. Time is marching on and soon the hurricane season will be upon us, which will make for an even BIGGER mess. So, stop with the blame game and come to a decision to solve the situation.

  • Hey, Anon, did it bother you as much when Bush was on all his many vacations?

  • BTW, Got an email last night some Republicans in congress want to give them more of our money for the clean-up?!! The profits those companies make they should foot the entire bill!
    And no this isn't because I resent rich people. Its because they have the money, this is their job. We need the tax dollars for our schools and such. Wonder how many Republican voters support this bail out?

  • Conservatives do not believe in treating the planet responsibily.They do not understand the connection between human actions and the degredation of  the world around. If the ones who frequent this site had their way, we'd be "drill baby drilling" in every coastal spot available. Why are they complaining now ? I'm sure that miles long by miles long slick won't have any adverse consequences for any living organism or industry. What a bunch of hypocrites. If this disaster wasn't such an easily target for stirrring the pot and pointing fingers, I doubt many of them would even care or have any interest. About N. Power? They wouldn't mind the plant or the spent rods to be housed next to their homes. Right!

  • Jindal is having to beg for the assistance he wants to help keep the oil off his shore and out of his marshes. Why? Some stupid EPA asshole wants to study it for a week or two to see if it will hurt the ecological balance. AAARRRGHGGH How stupid is that. Just why would you not try everything you could to stop this? Jindal needs to do similar to what Arizona did (and he is somewhat) Take it upon himself, don't worry what the White house or the EPA say. Just do it. What are they going to say, Oh no don't save our sealife or our marshes, don't save the beaches or the livelyhood of the people who use the sea to live. This administration is lame. They are putting up raodblocks everywhere they can. They are letting the EPA hold everyone hostage and it's not helping anyone. Dems always say "for the greater good".. well is it better to redirect some waters for a time or to continue to let the oil flow? I know what I think.
