We scream and morn the lost blood of 11 oil workers mixed with the blood of the earth. Yet 1 million innocent people have had their blood spilled while we steal the blood of the earth from under their still warm bodies.
I know this sounds crazy, but does anyone think that there could be a clue in this oil disaster as to why the Mayan Calendar abruptly ends in 2012?
I looked at a map showing ocean currents in the Gulf and Caribean. I used to live in Florida, and the Caribean is one of the major fishing resources in the world--not sports fishing as much as shrimping, commercial fishing, and sponge fishing. If you look at a map of the area, currents will bring the oil to Cuba and Mexico soon. We should invite other nations to join us in holding BP responsible for their mess. Or, we could learn from Venezuela, and Nationalize BP.

Re: your rant this am, no one on the left is saying "don't criticize the president" and no one is "trashing" you or Maddow. Don't do "complaint radio," even if you don't think you are, please.
Chemical and Engineering News is published by the American Chemical Society which is the professional society for chemists and those working in affiliated occupations.
It is NOT a publication of the American Chemistry Council, a propoganda organization for the chemical industry.
The "cover story" for the June 14 issue has several really well-written articles on the BP fiasco. It is not written in chemical jargon and pretty much sticks to the science.

SC GOP Sen. Jake Knotts apologised Tued but refused to resign for calling the Republican Gubernatorial front-runner a "raghead". Sen. Knotts is proud of his "redneck' label and stated "the Republican Party should embrace the redneck term and its origin." The true meaning of a "redneck" he said, is a hardworking farmer who works dusk to dawn to support his family and got the redneck from working in the sun."
I am a Democrat from a Democratic family. That means I have been a leftist/liberal/progressive/Democrat for 74 years which, I believe, qualifies me to speak out. And I say that Thom Hartmann must stop his attacks on President Obama. Yes, I too want single payer, government control of corporate excesses, firing of Emmanuel, Geithner, Summers, and most of the rest of Thom's program. But Thom has to realize that his attacks on Obama are helping ensure that our next president will be Palin/Paul or something like them.
