Who the hell does BP think they are? They may have a damn lease for the oil, but they do not own the coast - or do they? You should know.
The President should declare a National State of Emergency in the Gulf.
Immediately grant the damn permits to do whatever can be done to protect the shores. Immediately go to gatoroil.com - and buy that stuff that actually works, and isn't owned by BP.
Immediately hire an American workforce from around the country to go down there and help clean up. Make every possible action available to go and scoop up the Thousands of species and transport them to the many fantastic sea worlds and aquariums around the country!! Turtles, Dolphins, Fish, Birds??? Do they all have to die? Really?
Are we really doing all we can to save this vital eco system? I don't think so.
BP is doing all the research. Well of course they are. They are fined for the damage - how convenient to be able to say that the damage is minimal!
Please write an open letter to the President on my behalf, (and you can probably get 100 co-signers), to demand that the President of the United States Declares a Natl. State of Emergency in the gulf - kick out BP, quit trying to save the damn pump and start trying to save the friggin' gulf!!!!
We can do this - but it has to start with you demanding our President take control and help us!!!!
