Deplorable actions by BP and our goobermint.

Just keep your blinders on and you'll be fine.

Oh, and did you buy a respirator and reverse osmosis water filter yet?

Thanks GW! As far as BP is concerned, I only have one thing to say- "Release the Kraken!!!"

Thanks GW for taking on the BP zealist.  On www.theoildrum.com daily post an apparent experienced oil patch hand commented that BP is conducting extensive sonic surveys w Remote vehicles.   He says the sonic surveys relate to continuing concerns about the unstable seabed around the BOP and continued leaks.    After that comment all the BP hacks attacked the blogger w the vengence from hell calling him an idiot.  It is clear the blowout well is not leaking much oil but  the well has not been killed and appears to be VERY unstable.    Something is wrong since BP has not attempted to complete the relief well and no progress has been made to kill the well in over two weeks.   Remember sonic surveys are look for possible new ruptures.   The danger has not passed only covered up.

Corexit = Hide the shit so no one sees the fuckin' mess, and then go on tv and declare that the oil has disappeared or was never as bad as we thought. Problem solved. Now if only Corexit worked as well on those toxic bank assets.

Ah, but perception is everything.  Not surprised by any of this, SOP for gov and crooks of all stripes.  No one will be held accountable for anything.  There is no law in the land for the golden.  Only for us useless eaters.  When, not if, reality trumps the lies, I wonder, will anyone really do anything about this?  Nah.  Just look at Wall Street and the Fed.  Or irresponsible egg farmers or ..... the list could go on forever.   What a joke everything is.

Hahahaha, if not for G.W., we'd be in a total blackout at this point.  I think we're going to need a hell of a lot of rope in order to properly punish these BP scumbags and their kow-towing puppets in the government.

I bet Heli-Ben and Timmah could put a serious dent in the absorption of that remaining oil with all of the dollars that they've been printing lately.  God alone knows that that's about all for which it's good anymore.

East and West coast. The high levels of bacteria is a result of oil in the water. Mix the bacteria with Corexit and you get Liquid death.

Mutated Viruses from Corexit + bacteria (oil in the water produces oil eating bacteria)

Cities like Tampa who suck 25 million gallons per day of "fresh drinking water" out of the bay using desalinization:

Any bacteria/Corexit near the desalinization plant in Tampa? Oh not much... http://www.tampagov.net/appl_tampa_announcements/ViewRelease.asp?Release...

Google; Florida water bacteria. Dig deep into the search results because Google has been instructed to obfuscate.

High alert:

 I posted some time ago how festive the aquaculture would become with so much oil.Nothing like toxic bacterial blooms to really ruin things.Here's the best part:no one knows what kind of hilarious mutations will occur in the areas with no oxygen either.

  We could easily produce the conditions that will breed a horrible new plague of destructive bacteria...Russian roulette writ large.


  Large fish kills?It is only warm water...yea, that's the ticket!

I have a feeling that this thing is really going to cause a bigger problem. The capped well is just emptying it's contents under the gulf floor for now. Eventually, it will find another way to the surface. The kill well should have been done by now. BP says the oil has all disappeared? What kind of bs is going on down there?! This should not be hidden from us just because there is about to be an election! Is it magically going to become an issue again after the elections? If it does, well then - there would be yet another hallmark of down right sociopathic, evil behavior.

I'd feel better about BP's efforts to clean up the oil if their local guy spokesman in their tv ads could pronounce the word.  What the hell's "oal"?

BP is Correct!

"I can't tell you how many times we've gotten reports from fishermen with sightings of sheen and oil. Ninety-nine percent of the time, these reports turn out to be organic material."

Fucker's absolutely right, honest, spot on, above board (not intended) telling the truth, honest as the day is whatever and happier than a Bishop in Boy's Town.

Oil is an Organic Material.

Just like alll them folks got plastic bags over their heads courtesy of Pol Pot?  Them bags was educational materials.  Folks got educated real quick in how long they could go without oxygen.

You're in Good Hands in Our States.

the epa can't do everything ya know. the country is full of toxic lead bullets. who do think will clean all that up if they are sent away to lay on beaches in the gulf watching mother nature clean itself up. they could be down there for years.

""GW , thanks for staying with this. these bastards seem to have shut down much of the news coming out of the gulf. right up there with ' green shoots ' and ' the war is over '.""-------- you forgot about all the jobs created and the economy on the mend. And "get educated and you will have a job" from the Dept of Education. 

I am awaiting the article from an American Science magazine showing the good stuff from the oil blow out. I predict within a year.

"Shut up", Karl Denninger explained. Destin's Darling thinks GW should be reeducated.

Denninger is one of my favorite economic and financial writers.  I see things a wee bit differently from him on the Gulf, but that doesn't diminish my respect for him on economic issues.

As soon as they start pulling that BOP up with the pipe (at an angle remember), it will also do damage to the casing and the "cement blockage" that has cemented the pipe to the wall.  It would have been smarter for them to have did this without the cementing being done.

Cameron want's to delay retrieval of bop. Where to put it and who will "guard it" seems to be a big issue. We wouldn't want anyone to hide anything concerning this bop, would we?

Reporting of this caliber leads to back to school essays asking for a comparison of the cleanup in NOLA to the coverup in GOM. Discuss the power of focus in a single-payer (BP) system.
