Im thinking the governors of the affected areas and local Mayers and councilmen need to take matters into their own hands and tell the feds to go pee up a rope.
Build the sand berms and block the oil from the beaches. Gitter Done!!! Stop worrying about permits and regulations from the EPA. They are a part of an absentee government which makes them a non entity.
I would also like to see my own Governor Christ be a little more forcefull when the pres is in town and not just there for the photo op.
That limp wristed weenie! Would someone push him outta the closet already?

BP has loads and loads of money, no way they will go bankrupt. They can pay this stuff off in a quarter of earnings. Remember, this kind of spill happens all over the place, just doesn't happen to be in your country where you might see it on the news. There should be no "gas crisis", it's not like this well was online in the first place, so they're not relying on it for oil. One of many many many oil wells in production.

Plus BP is being sure to siphon up as much as they can right now, so it's hardly a loss for them.

If your government lets them claim bankruptcy or some crap like that it will be amazing.. truly amazing how well entrenched they are in your government.

Not that Canada is much better....

yup keel you are dead right one thing I have learned after 54 years is that the one thing you can expect from any organization larger than about 3 people is general incompetence. However, at the moment reducing the value of BP is not in America's best interest. It simply isnt. Thats reality, it sucks but it is true. A catch 22 if you call the incompetent incompetent it will reduce the value of the incompetent company and as such US tax payers will have to foot the bill. and it will be a big bill.

Iím thinking that we as people need to do more grassroots direct actions instead of seeking for government solutions. We need some oil boycotts, large protests, ways to shut down the rigs, and maybe even some sabotage.

Could be, and I am normally a pacifist, but when they lie and destroy life, then maybe more action is needed.

Sorry Rem

death for "lying and destroying life"...there would be a long list of potential candidates before you even left the marina...let alone got in to the real world.

In the real world, crap happens, and as I and others have posted before...our actions can, and often do, make things worse...

Besides Mother Nature has a way of dealing with things...

Kd,

I never said anything about death, and I agree that nature does deal with things, but it doesn't need to get that far. We should be putting life before profit and greed, and when that doesn't happen, people need to speak up.
