Congress recently gave the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers an 18-month deadline to complete a study of how to prevent species invasions into the Great Lakes.
What that means is that absolutely nothing will happen as far as the fish , but there will be a huge expenditure of money so the Army Corps of Engineers can go to Florida to party and eat lobster ceviche for breakfast and go on midnight dance cruises on our dime.
That's what that means.

The U.S. Army of Engineers are smart enough not to eat anything out of the Gulf with the toxin Corexit polluting the waters thanks to BP. Two headed fish and seafood is not too healthy.

I would want to see them go waste it partying instead of the GSA bas terds.

It truly is a travesty. Unfortunately, we've been polluting our oceans for a long time. Not only by oil/gas but also by raw waste. If we don't take care of our oceans, lakes and rivers, we're doomed. BP ended up being at fault but as they say; you can put a man on trial but you can't make the guilty pay. What really ticked me off about the whole thing was what the heck were the Federal Inspectors doing? Obviously, not their job. Why drilling is allowed with no plan in place, should a blowout occur, is beyond me. It's not just the Gulf either. As I have said, I come from a family of Geologists and oil/gas production has gotten us to where we are today. However, these aspects of the industry show total lack of any concern for the enviroment. If we want to continue drilling offshore, fine, but let's have proven control methods in emergency situations. Hard for me to be critical of the industry but our enviroment must come first.

Asian Carp article, but NOTHING on the Obama ECONOMY!
It's the media's philosophy: if we don't print anything about the economy then the people will forget about it.
