    Most of the Fishermen that i have talked to have leased their boats out to BP, or the Gov, to try slow this s*** down.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    A good bit of the fishermen in the immediate danger zone have been going to briefings and volunteering their services as well, they will go above and beyond to protect their homes and livelihoods. Hopefully all the projections turn out to be a worst case "what if". Until that thing gets stopped and retained though we are looking at a serious scenario though.

    At least they are still able to make some $$ somehow.

    Well, Bush will just blame it on Clinton.

    Update. The first of the three leaking portions of the blowout seems to be handled, the first dome appears to be taking. Even though it's the most minor leak it's a start. Hopefully they have the next one capped tomorrow. Fingers crossed folks.

    Lets put it to rest that it didn't have blow out preventers, once and for all. And in fact, lets hear a real account of exactly what happened including the test just prior to this accident where the BOP's did work or else they wouldn't have continued:

    Oil rig worker calls in to the mark levin show:

    Mark Levin

    Enjoy!

    I would not believe anybody about this unless he was under oath. Do you realize how easy it would for bp to bribe someone, er , I mean lobby someone?

    Did you even bother to listen to it? 1000 bucks says you didn't. So please refrain from comment. Thanks. We all know you think BP is crooked and nothing will change that.
