Gulf Oil spill fades as issue

Full story: Washington Post - The Fix

The oil spill on the Gulf Coast is fading as an issue for most Americans. Photo by Derick E. Hingle/Bloomberg Even as BP works to cap the leaking well in the Gulf Coast , there is new polling data out of Gallup that shows the American public has begun to turns its gaze away from the oil spill.

"fades as issue"??? I find that offensive. The policitican may consider it not an "issue", they have their 20 billion, BP placed the cap, I supposed that means they are done poisoning us for corporate money.

But, that oil will destroy life for years, children that have not even been born yet will die from the chemical sprays, the oil.

Government and corporate abuse of our own people IS an issue, and this Gulf Oil Spill is a prime example of it.

It's not described as "corporate controlled-media" for nothing! There is NO OUTRAGEOUS AGENDA that does not get perpetrated on the American public without the critical collusion of the controlled mainstream print and electronic News-Media!

that's the human nature. we get lazy and forget if it does not affect ourselves directly. we also get sick of hearing about it and go in denial. wake up people, it's not over. the spill is still on.

Yep I know, it's outrageous. Anyone who by now believe in BP and believe that they want what is best for the human race and wildlife are kidding themselves.

The only thing that has value to the BP top is money. BP known for their obsession with cost cutting. That's a bad thing when you have the power to destroy the world when you drill ultra deep wells.

All kinds of "insider" fore-warnings useful for vulture profiteering (about a year's worth prior to the actual accident).

SCARCITY or LIMITED AVAILABILITY will also make profits (one of the restricting consequences from the Gulf Disaster). Banksters and major oil companies realize all this--just like the contrived profits generated by African conflicts and market-limitations in diamond production/trading.

From what read and heard so far, regarding Gulf Disaster details, pre-events, corporate-connected angles, etc.--I'd say the disaster conditions were being quietly "assembled" perhaps two years before the actual accident event (including risk location and poor practice warnings).

Slight syntax correction; meant to write "including risky location choice and poor practices procedures (ex: ONE YEAR AGO scientist were warning the federal government that the Macondo location was extremely seismically unstable--and BP has a LONG LONG history of not observing "best practices" industrial procedures).

Think aboput it, these psychopaths in high places have had about two years to conspire, war-game, and factor out all or most of the cascading chaotic consequences resulting from their manufactured environmental disaster (not including their accumulated data on all past lesser environmental disasters).

I sympathize with the people of the gulf. That said, many of us here in NY feel that the rest of the country forgot us since shortly after 9/11. The majority of terror funding should go to the biggest targets like DC, LA and NYC. Sending gas masks to Nebraska sounds great, until you realize that they should have gone to the NYPD.

You're an idiot. It's the surrendercrats in congress that play politics with our safety all the time. Kerry came home from Nam and lied about atrocities. Kennedy called Iraq Bush's Vietnam while the decision was still in doubt. Bush and Ridge went to great lengths to protect us while obama is reading miranda rights to war criminals to justify his, carter's and gore's bogus nobel piece of sh!t prizes.

Don't sell the duct tape yet--it can help some with indoor carbon/hepa air purifier emergency uses (keeping the VOC-laden air outside of rooms with leaky windows).

Republicans and Democrats are essentially a DUOPOLY sham representation that serves the corporate power oligarchy interests. It's that NEOCON-CORPORATE-BANKSTER OLIGARCHY that selects their sham "candidates", manipulates and frauds their "elections", buys and keeps in line these duopoly career parasites.

You (who ever "you" is)--are just a tiny part of the ongoing public mind-control propaganda effort. Killer Clown Bush, Darth Vader Cheney, and the rest their genocidal corrupt sleazy insane Neocons--DID NOT PROTECT ANYONE FROM ANYTHING!! Imbecile troll, you are wrapping yourself around the 911WTC/Pentagon "terror" attacks--but (as the cliche goes)--"911 WAS AN INSIDE JOB"!!!

It was also the trigger event for two unnecessary resource-control meat-grinding illegal genocidal wars, mostly benefiting Zionists/Israel and the military-industrial complex.

Neocon troll, you are wrapping your comments in propaganda nonsense!

Spot-on right! One more idiot troll pushing Neocon spin-o-rama on the 'net! Weaving it in to the current Gulf Disaster misery.

Some more comments to you NEOCON MORON:

At least Rosie O'Donnell is out in the open about her private life and not blackmailable for it!

Regarding the Republicans' Neocon "ChickenHawk-in-Chief drunk-cokehead, with known closeted predilections for "call-males"--read the following Iraq War criticisms from the other just-as-rotted side of the American political DUOPOLY!

Daily Kos: Kerry: Flip this White House to stop "insanity" YES! The I word!:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/12/23/1332...

Of course today, that past Republican idiot puppet's wars, has now become the present Democrat puppet's current expanded wars! And, the present puppet is another drug-head blackmailable closeted bisexual.
