    wow
    OK, well you can devolve into all the hysterics you wish but the fact is, it will get better and what's done is done. We need the oil and it's risky business getting it. So you have choices: take the risks or stop using oil.

    hys·ter·ic (hĭ-stĕrˈĭk)
    noun

    1. A person suffering from hysteria.
    2. hysterics (used with a sing. or pl. verb)
    a. A fit of uncontrollable laughing or crying.
    b. An attack of hysteria.

    "Uncontrollable laughing or crying."

    Sorry, Jall. I'm just not seeing it.

    In light of your complaints here, your use of silly hyperbole is somewhat ill-advised, don't you think?

    You were saying?
    The 1,000 barrels per day is a very old estimate. You are either intentionally minimizing this leak, in spite of plenty of reputable sources to the contrary, or not staying on top of this as much as you think you are..

    U.S. Coast Guard estimates of the amount of oil surging into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon rig may be low by a factor of 10 or more, National Public Radio has reported.
    Analysis of sea floor video made available Wednesday by BP suggests that 70,000 barrels a day are pouring into the Gulf, not 5,000 barrels a day as estimated by the Coast Guard, the report says.

    If the analysis by Purdue University professor Steve Werely is correct, the amount of oil in the Gulf has already exceeded the 250,000 barrels spilled in the 1989 Exxon Valdez tanker accident in Alaska.
    Gulf of Mexico oil leak volume estimates are dramatically low, analysis suggests | NOLA.com

    Uhh, lived next door to it. Kept up on it probably better than anyone else here.

    Only about 20 square acres are still contaminated chronically.
    You proved my point. It's still not all cleaned up.

    What diff does it matter if you lived on a house boat in the middle of it?

    When I start giving a **** what you doubt or have faith in, I'll be sure to let you know, mkay?
    And yet you responded to my post.

    Carville, Matthews rip W.H. BP response - Glenn Thrush - POLITICO.com

    once THRILLED chrissy matthews: obama's response to the spill "scares me. He's been acting a little like a Vatican Observer here. When is he actually going to do something?"

    serpenthead carville, committed clintonista: "They are risking everything by this 'go along with BP' strategy they have that seems like, lackadaisical on this," Carville told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Friday. "They seem like they're inconvenienced by this, this is some giant thing getting in their way and somehow or another, if you let BP handle it, it'll all go away. It's not going away. It's growing out there. It is a disaster of the first magnitude, and they've got to go to Plan B."

    politico, msnbc's (and my) favorite source: "Their statements came on a day when the press corps spent the better part of an hour grilling White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about the administration's response to the Deepwater Horizons disaster -- and the cloud of confusion over the amount of oil spilling from the severed exploration pipe and BP's efforts to staunch the flow."

    the press corps is getting pissy

    what do you think they're gonna spit if this spill is still spewing in a month?

    pray

    Where exactly is Valdez? Mexico?

    You were just there, in person?

    So Obama's inspectors that praised the rig have no fault?

    In the last year, yes. It is in Alaska in case you are geographically illiterate.

    Edit: I lied. It's been two years yesterday that I was in Alaska and, specifically, Valdez.

    Absolutely they do! And hopefully, changes will eliminate that weak link.

    I didn't say "all cleaned up". I said it's fine now and it is. Life has gotten back to normal, the salmon and halibut are good to eat (some damned good fishing, too), and the sound is remarkably full of healthy life.

    Reading is fundamental.

    So no, you still have no point.

    How about the government helping to stop the spill first since they seem to be spectators right now
