Where are the Chinese? BP can't fix the leak, Obama sits on his hands and a month later hundreds of thousands of gallons is STILL lowing out of this pipe. To be allowed to drill and have no Plan A, forget about a plan B in the event of an emergency like this one is is criminal.

I'm in Nebraska and I'm upset about this. I know I don't understand all of the details, but it seems insane that someone can't figure this out already.

We need offshore drilling, but we need a surefire way to plug up the well in the event of an emergency. I'm sure this all could have been prevented if someone wasn't trying to save a buck. Now look at the cost. Just terrible.

Obama will visit the Gulf Coast this Friday to assess the situation.

No more meetings, mo more finger pointing. No more assessments. Just fix the stupid leak and clean the mess up.

Recalls a certain Jindal cited that it was pork spending on Volcano warning systems in Alaska, I think the same thing now with the oil spill. It's all pork, we don't need to spend any tax money on it. Have BP clean it all up.

Not a threat. A promise.

Dude you do realize that all the people working for BP are local fishermen out of work because of this?

The Gulf States need to take it upon themselves to do anything and everything in order to keep more oil from coming on shore. To hell with BP and the Federal Government.

You can bet the people of this country would back the states 100% and give holy hell to BP and the Feds if they tried to stop them.

Let's hope and pray that it finally gets plugged today. I wouldn't know how to even begin to calculate all the damages from this runaway deep sea oil well in the Gulf.

This is true. As with anything these days. You have to take care of yourself and your own things. You can't rely on the government to help you, you can't rely on big businesses to do anything. You can't even rely on these institutions hiring people with any kind of intelligence.

I can't help but think of the prestine lovely beaches along the gulf coast, with the pure white sand that feels like flour when you walk through it. Imagining that caked with crude oil really disturbs me.
