They need to stay in business at least long enough to pay for this atrocious mess they are making.

Don't worry they made 27 billion dollars in profit last year or 37, doubt this will put them out of business. So far the CEO of BP has said that his company is taking full responsiblity for the spill and that they will fully clean up the entire spill and pay off any legitimate claims, guess we will see how it all plays out, a local politician was asking why all the executives are coming out of houston when all the drilling is being done in Louisiana. There are many unanswered questions. Wonder how all this would be playing out if it would have happened off the Texas or California coast. Guarented when the slick washes up on Florida's panhandle coast the shi! will hit the fan. No wonder ther dumping so much disperson on it at least keep the oil in Louisiana for God's sake.

Sorry if my spelling a little off all I was trying to say is that if the spill happened in a more politicaly connected state maybe more would be getting done, course if they don't get it shut down soon we will find out as mississipi, alabama and florida will be hit before long you see this spill keeps growing. In fact, this has the real potential to be the largest environmental disaster this country has ever seen, according to some experts. dumping the dispersent on it isn't getting rid of the problem, only sinking it below the surface, it's still washing up on shore.

On the local news they are talking about the 850,000 gallons of chemicals that have been dumped on the oil, the way it sounds that stuff may be worse than the oil. Not looking good

none of this on any state is looking good and I will keep all of the gulf coast in my prayers that it does not hurt the economy or the shore too much . I feel for all the hotel owners on the gulf shores and how much business they will loose and some will not be able to recover from it and will go under . I also feel bad for how much sea life is going to be destroyed . And let me tell you that I hope there is a special place in hell for ppl who try to gouge ppl for food , water , gas what have you . I will keep all of you in my prayers .

Folks go to the Alaska chat and get a eyefull of what is to come on this oil spill. it is shaping into one of the largest manmade or natural dissasters of our lifetime and maybe all time, it's getting huge.

If I see a BP employee in the marsh I will bury them out there.

Not a threat. A promise.

Did you guys see this:

BP's "Rules" Prevent Journalists From Touring Gulf Coast Damage | Crooks and Liars

Now BP is telling journalists (and anyone else for that matter) that they are not allowed to take pictures or video of the beaches. I swear, you can't make this stuff up.

WTH??
When CBS tried to film a beach with heavy oil on the shore in South Pass, Louisiana, a boat of BP contractors, and two Coast Guard officers, told them to turn around, or be arrested.
"This is BP's rules, it's not ours," someone aboard the boat said. Coast Guard officials told CBS that they're looking into it.
As the Coast Guard is a branch of the Armed Forces, it brings into question how closely the government and BP are working together to keep details of the disaster in the dark.
Hold the phone...BP is making the rules???? Kind of hard to argue that we aren't a full-blown corporatocracy, when BP--that's British Petroleum--is leading the United States Coast Guard on this--and this is okay with a branch of our armed forces.
