When I heard of the BP spill..I stocked up on tuna fish
Yeah..that's right..I'm a hoarder !

Once it runs out though...I have my pond full of catfish.
Each can will get treated like it's expensive caviar.

Does anybody on hear complain about farmers and how their fertilizing cause a dead zone in the Gulf that litterally kills everything in the area. Oil does damage too but it doesnt eraticate everything. I guess obama should put a farming freeze on middle america.

Something most people didn't understand while reports were unfolding-- "dispersants" do not actually take control or possession of the spill, they merely rearrange where the oil will be. Oil on the top of the water looks ugly, the dispersants sink it to the bottom where no one sees the damage as obvious. So not only did the oil spill on the top of the water harm aquatic life near to the surface & foul the air with oil burning, once the dispersants went into play the damage to bottom life multiplied the damage.

Thing is if these people would have spent all their energy meaningfully dealing with the spill instead of spending it trying to save face or shoving things under a rug, they wouldn't be facing the scope of lawsuit & damages they're facing now.
