    No, you're merely calculating your political gain from this accident, which is nil.
    Remember, they care about people as long as it benefits them. They don't mention that actual people will get hurt, or that most likely 11 good hard working blue collar guys got killed. All they care about is this tragedy softening the blow their party will take over Obamacare and the other idiotic legislation coming from this regime. It makes me sick to think these automatons can't get past partisanship to actually discuss anything intelligently.

Here's a clue, oil seeps out of vents, fissures, and faults all the time and used to be considered a junk substance until it's combustive and elastic values were discovered in fuel an manufacturing needs. My coast, the business of my coast. Oil producers are safe, but no matter what bad things happen, besides you wanting to pull an "Iron Eyes Cody" and cry over something you can't control and didn't do over some mentally created slight against Gaia what else do you plan on doing?
    Thank you for that fresh steaming pile. I learned long ago not to waste time trying to change a completely closed mind. Have a nice day.

    Dude, I know these guys. I know the deckhands, the engineers, the executives, the captains, and the divers. I have forgotten more about the business than you'll ever have the chance to know so you can drop the tree hugging talking points, uninformed opinions, and calling me closed minded. Unlike you I can analyze the situation and also unlike you I don't have an agenda on this thing, I do care what happens to MY area and don't care what you think.

    It's ashore.
    " ... By sunset on Thursday, the oil had reached the mouth of Mississippi river, lapping at the shoreline in long, thin lines and threatening birds, marine life and some of the country's richest seafood grounds.

    The massive slick has prompted the southern US state of Louisiana to declare a state of emergency and the White House to step up its response.

    Al Jazeera's Sebastian Walker, reporting from a fishing port south of New Orleans, said fishermen were out in the early hours of Friday, trying to get as much of their catch as they could before the oil slick was expected to hit the shore. ... "

    Who you claim to "know" and where you live is irrelevant. Experts (people who actually DO have specific knowledge of oil spills) aren't yet sure of the extent this catastrophic event will have. You certainly aren't anywhere near qualified to make predictions. NO ONE, outside of bought and paid for oil industry shills and apologists thinks this CRISIS "is no big deal." Say whatever the &*#% you please. It is a VERY BIG DEAL and is likely to become an even BIGGER DEAL as time progresses.

    You're gawddamn right I have "an agenda" ...

    . it's the livelihoods of shrimpers, fishermen, the tourist industry, etc, and the desecration of untold millions of acres of critical coastline habitats and the creatures that have lived there for eons, that now face a possible extinction.

    You really are good at these 'apples and oranges' type comments, ain't ya?

    The Exxon Valdez happened in the middle of nowhere. You know, Alaska! (Where the population is so small that an idiot can get elected as Governor.)

    How many businesses do you think were adversely impacted by the Valdez spill?

    How many businesses do you think this spill will affect? Say, from the western border of Louisiana to the western border of Florida. (And that's a conservative estimate. With the wind blowing from the south east to the north west this very well could hit Texas.)

    This accident is going to impact the southern coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and maybe Texas and Florida.

    At the rate of the current spill rate of 210,000 gallons per day this accident could spill more than the 11 millions the Exxon Valdez spilled... and then some!

    Look up the populations affected by the Valdez accident and this one. The internet can help you.

    And yes 21 years does make it ok.
    Only for people who don't live there and don't care about those who do.

    I get a very strong feeling that you've never even been to the coastal areas of Louisiana.... and no Bourbon Street doesn't count.

    The people that live on that coast have been through a hell of a lot worse than this oil spill and they will still be there fishing ten years from now.

    It is a problem.

    I didn't say it was out of control.

    Your insecurity is showing. My only "agenda" is the environment. I don't want it destroyed for the sole purpose of making oil companies rich.

    The only beneficiaries of that oil are the big oil companies????

    So what? Relevance?

    The people that live on that coast have been through a hell of a lot worse than this oil spill and they will still be there fishing ten years from now.
    Shirley you're not going to compare a hurricane to this.

    Please tell me you have some other disaster that has killed millions of sea creatures, destroyed the fishing industry, or any industry, for years to come.
