I work in the Oil Industry, I know how difficult this operation is. I can tell you from my experience that they are doing everything they can to shut this thing down. I am not defending BP in any way but to think that they have left any stone unturned is nuts.

this is a tough mess and they will have to have the resolve to get it back to where things were prior to the disaster.

i think that TONY HAYWARD needs to be dropped in the middle of it he says that this is minor he has no feeling hes cold as stone
but wait until bp gets the bill from the goverment the will be antsy then and not want to cover it.
Its a shame even our goverment is hiding lots from us because the malitary said there would be a shortage if we didn;t drill
the next 2 generations will not know what we loved so much about our gulf of mexico it feed a many of people
i also think heads should roll in the federal goverment levels they are just ther for the pay just like our sentors and congress they want there pay but to lazy to read the bills guess they think they are paid just to go sit they need to be voted out they are to lax also

Thank God for inexpensive shrimp, scallops, crab and other shellfish imported from Asia, Central and South America. The fisherfolk on the U.S. Gulf Coast should have seen this coming and prepared for the worst. Now, the tax revenue that the U.S. Treasury will have to be stretched to support these people as well as the resort owners and every other swinging dick who makes their living on the Gulf waters. Guess that Congress is going to have to extend the debt ceiling so we can borrow more money from Communist China.

Too bad that Lincoln didn't simply accept the session of the Confederate States of America and left them to fend for themselves. Without the South, the U.S. would have been a lot better off.

In the meantime, it's drill, baby drill! Drill the California Coast, Drill the Alaska Arctic Coast. Drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Drill wherever there is an indication of subterranean petroleum deposits. Drill, baby drill! God knows, the U.S. Treasury could use the money.

If this thing continues, though, the oil will infiltrate the whole ocean, not just the gulf. This will hamper all fishing industries everywhere. Who wants to eat fish that have been in oil and gas, not to mention the dispersant that they have added to the waters? No one really knows what that will do to people.
