may be Impossible
How many millions of barrels escaped each day?
The gooey oil washing into the maze of marshes
along the Gulf Coast could prove impossible to remove,
leaving a toxic stew lethal to fish and wildlife,
government officials and independent scientists said.
Officials are considering some drastic and risky
They could set the wetlands on fire or flood
areas in hopes of floating out the oil.
They warn an aggressive cleanup could ruin the
marshes and do more harm than good.
The only viable option for many impacted areas
is to do nothing and let nature break down the spill.
More than 50 miles of Louisiana's delicate shoreline
already have been soiled by the massive Cheney slick.
Officials fear oil eventually could invade wetlands
and beaches from Texas to Florida. Louisiana is expected to be hit hardest.
I saw Tweety on Leno and he was angry that Obama
is not telling us the truth - and I agree.
The Gulf is being polluted at whatever rate BP
says it is, and we know they're lying to us.
Remember, it started out at what, 1,000 gallons
a day? Then it went to 5,000 gallons a day,
and then higher and higher and Obama says nothing.
It reminds me of Eldrick's problems - remember
how that started?
There was rumors of an affair - ONE affair.
Next day another girl came forward, then another,
Like the oil spill, Eldrick's single affair blossomed
into over 120 - same for BP.
Recent estimates are coming out in thousands of
barrels (55 gallons each) each day
Or is that hundreds of thousands of barrels a
day - we don't know because
nobody can measure anything this big BUT the
government and Obama is silent.
Perhaps he's embarrassed that, about a month before
the biggest eco-disaster of all time,
he was all for off-shore drilling and, to some
degree, he looks like a Repuiblican oil man on this.
Didn't we vote to change our course AWAY from
Republican oil men?
I wonder - where would we be today if Obama's
was something OTHER than getting the snarling
dogs to like him?
