I'm surprised there is no thread on the oil spill yet.
Personally, I am furious. We all know that the Dutch offered to sent a fleet of oil skimmers over just a couple days after this disaster started. These things not only are able to recover most of the oil, but they even have the ability to salvage it as well. Our shores would not be getting soiled and the water would be relatively clean.
WTF??? Our government has been sitting on their hands doing nothing for two months. "We're going to hold BP accountable." BFD!!!! BP already is accountable. Clean the d**n Gulf!! Stop the d**n leak!! I was ready to puke listening to the President speak last night. His segway into talking about 'green' energy and Cap & Trade seriously makes me wonder about the reason why NOTHING is getting done by the Federal government. It's almost like they who hate oil are saying, "Oh goody... now we have a reason to push our agenda. So let's just not do a d**n thing."
