Every day there's a new BP plan to stop the leak. Today,"BP hopes tube will siphon oil to tanker (AP)
Why do I feel like people are either wringing their hands in frustration or just don't give a shit about the Gulf of Mexico and the wildlife that will die because of this colossal Klusterf*#k
Fix it. Forget the hearings, and whose fault it is. That can be easily sorted out at a later date. It's about who's gonna pay the price for it.
We'll be paying the price for it because those slimy assholes that run things in the oil business are too insulated with deals and contracts and lobbyists so that "we the people" will be coughing up money from our wallets to pay the higher gas prices for this leak and our taxes will pay for the cleanup. How long did the Exxon Valdez take to pay up? Did they ever? BP spillage is the equivalant of 2 Exon Valdez's a week.
And our economy isn't bad enough that now, our shrimp and crabs that survive this are going to be inedible mutants for indefinite amounts of time. We'll have to buy them from China. I'm not sure which is worse, oil soaked crustaceans or sewage fed ones.
I want to wash birds. I'm not kidding, I am willing to travel to wherever they need washing. I'm also willing to clean up the dead fish that will be floating in along the Gulf Coast.
I'll clean up for nothing, but for those jobless Americans that are part of the unemployed, there must be at least another 250,000 jobs waiting for this one. And let BP pick up the tab.
