Why is it not a good thing to give fishermen compensation. Your objection to this is one thing I don't understand.
You might have understood it if you read the whole thing, since you seem to think I'm against comp for the laid-off workers from the rigs shut down by the Prez's moratorium (how'd you get "fishermen" out of that?).

What I said was that the Administration's sending the jobless rig workers off to wait in line at BP for their lost wages is obtuse and insulting--let the Admin. pay them up front, then seek reimbursement from BP if they think they can get it (which doubtful since it's not BP's rigs, not their moratorium).

And "considering" workers' comp is a delay and a cop-out, it would be far less than what they lost, and even then they don't seem in a hurry to do even that.

I don't understand how you don't understand this...

Wasted days and wasted nights...all for show and yet they do nothing

again reality is what it is..:
All that wasted boom could have been used by those 2000 boats BP bragged about to skim...But NO BP only wasted more time by using the BOOMS and the man hours and money for a SHOW when in reality they knew the booms would do nothing...

Talk about MISINFORMATION...BP is the most guilty :
Did ya hear the one about the oil boom? | al.com

Did anyone happen to catch the Huckabee show last night? I only saw the last few minutes but the show was focusing on private sector solutions to the oil recovery problem. What I saw was encouraging. If this technology works as advertised, then it seems to me that the government should be gearing up to start producing these machines as fast as they got the country geared up to produce airplanes, tanks and arms back in WWII.


Unleash the private sector to clean up the Gulf (Wizbang)

"It was a fascinating show that demonstrated that the answers to this gulf oil spill lie within America's entrepreneurs and private companies. As I said last week, if President Obama had gone on television within days of the original explosion and put out an SOS to America's private sector, chances are he would have gotten far more control over this situation much sooner and the Gulf Coast's beaches and marine life wouldn't be at risk of being permanently destroyed."

Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 8:00pm Eastern Standard Time, Ecosphere [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]Technologies[/color][/color]
(OTCBB:ESPH) will be featured on Mike Huckabee’s TV show on the Fox News Channel. The “Huckabee” show will discuss a number of ways to clean up the BP oil spill including Ecosphere’s solution. The show will also be replayed on Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 11:00pm EST and on Sunday at 8:00pm EST

Knot...thats exactly why BP should not be in charge...They have rejected many good ideas just to delay in hope of keeping the well and recovering oil...

We need our best minds, engineers and contractors on this...not oil companies with no plans but old tried tested and did not work ideas...

Makes you wonder what happened to the U.S Corps of Engineers...huh...I dont think I have read where they are envolved anywhere...

Exactly and great article. Better yet, someone like that would take out a cruise ship with a few thousand people onboard knowing it is in poor condition and has faults that could cause it to sink. They would also do it in the icy waters of the north atlantic.

Sailguy, except for it being a cruise ship it was a ship designed to drill. The ship was in need of maitainance and repair's including the blow out preventer . Number 2 in that article states it better...

11 people on that ship died ,some jumped to their death in flames..So BP did exactly that.. ...We talk around here everytime a boater or sailor does something stupid,well this defines stupid and look at the tax payers dollars it's costing us all through the use of rescurces in the USCG alone..

where are those sailors now that are always ready to "Jump the Stupid"...

Does politics over ride their thoughts???

if so.............
