    I do not know about our President; but I will say that they make too much.
    Reform is badly needed here.
    We can start with much higher taxes on the wealthy.

    I used to shrimp in the gulf years ago and catch oil balls in my nets, especially off the coast of Louisiana. This has been going on for years. I hope it is really investigated like Obama promises but I am afraid of more cover ups.

    I heard reports of the coast guard today finding oil balls off the florida keys.

    Oil balls? You mean that oil isn't disrupted enough by waves to break it apart in the ocean? That's pretty interesting, actually.

    The media calls them tar balls but I call them oil balls. After all tar is made from oil. One of tar's major uses is for flat roofing. They heat the tar and then mop it onto the roof surface where it hardens up and is one of the most waterproof systems there is for flat roofs.

    Also rolled rubber roofs are used for this but they probably make the rubber from oil too.

    It's not just BP though. Halliburton and Transocean are liable as well.
    More accurately, they won't pay anything. Their insurance will.

    All of the above plus criminal charges. They had illegally obtained permits to drill.

    Do you have a link showing that BP illegally obtained its permits?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
