So here I am trying to enjoy my 3-day weekend and....
Whatever British Petroleum was trying to do all last week to stop the oil leak in the Gulf did not work. Am I surprised? Hell no I'm not surprised. What I am surprised about is that President Obama does not seem to get it. It's almost like this thing is playing out in slow motion and Obama still can't get up to speed.
It's becoming more and more obvious that BP has more power than President Obama, don't you think?
Someone needs to get BP the heck out of the way and find someone, the Army Corp of Engineers, a foreign government or whomever and get this damned leak plugged!
It is possible that we've already reached the point of no return as far as the health of the Gulf of Mexico is concerned. There is an astounding amount of oil in the Gulf and toxic dispersant right along with it. How many years will it be before anyone will be able to eat fish from the Gulf? How long will it take for the wetlands to come back?
And the scariest question is what if this leak goes on for months? Is it possible that this spill can foul all of the world's oceans? I'm not scientist but I know that ocean currents are strong enough to carry this oil a great distance.
This could turn into a world wide disaster of epic proportions.
