See here, where WDSU reports that BP wasn't even using the boats it hired -- they're just sitting there doing NOTHING.
Jefferson Parish Emergency Management has commandeered all of BP's hired boats on Grand Isle, parish Councilman Chris Roberts confirmed in an e-mail to WDSU on Saturday.And, what is this bullshit coming out of D.C. that only BP can fix this mess, that none of the feds have the means or even a clue?
You know in a commie country like China a whole buncha people would be arrested and probably shot. In Japan they'd have to commit suicide for destroying so many people's homes, livelihoods and public space. But here in the land of decadent capitalism, corporate welfare and mefirst&only, how much ya wanna bet BP doesn't even clean up the mess that maybe somebody else will figure out how to at least stop? How much ya wanna bet they won't pay for anything? How much ya wanna bet they're gonna go right out and do it again, in the same damned Gulf of Mexico?
How much more of this can our global environment stand before its entire immune system breaks down from the constant assault and destruction of vital parts of it? Ya wanna guess not very much longer?
