Now I ask what are we going to do about it, wait for nature to disolve the mess and go on like nuthin ever happened?

Well every state,save Florida,was a red state where everybody was jumping up and screaming "DRILL,BABY,DRILL" at so every possible opportunity before the last election so perhaps BP alone is not totally responsible.

I find it a bit ironic to hear people in the oil industry blame ANYONE but themselves for the disaster or the moratorium.
You brought the moratorium on yourselves. Read that again slowly so maybe you'll comprehend facts.

How many days is it?

The oil industry obviously doesn't have a ****ing clue.

Oystermen don't get their jobs back after the moratorium. Shrimpers are screwed a lot more than roughrednecks. Fishermen by the droves have had their livelyhoods shat upon by the oil industry.
None of them get their jobs back after the moratorium.

There are what? 300 million people in the USA? The oil industry employs how many from that number?
Such a small segment of society sure does whine like little girls about their jobs while oystermen are ho$ed for at least one or two generations, if not more.

Shame on the oil industry. They lie and decieve yet We The Sheeple keep sucking them off.
Remember when gas was $4+ a gallon? Remember when 401'ks were drying up and vani$hing?

Many Americans have a very convenient memory or they're deluded. Both? I think it is because
they get information from a pill popping drug addict. It is like a rush of stupidity to the brain.

I'm not all that religious but the bible mentions something about "good stewards".

Jah is going to want to have a word with many of you. You can't wash that off with soap.
