I guess we have all see the commercials, on TV and CABLE, about how BP is going to do the right thing, and how BP is going to be here for those people that need BP, but you know, if they had taken the money from all those commercials they did, they could have paid all the claims that are “waiting”
We have to ask what is up with BP?
Here is a word of advise before you go out and spend millions, (allegedly) on public relations commercials make sure you have paid your claims.
News this morning alleges, that BP, or the company that is in charge of issuing checks have stopped payment on some checks allegedly, or just failed to pay others, is this true?
After the President came out and made promises, will they be kept?
The problems that America faces is significant, it could be up to 20 years before food is once again safe to eat, it could be, but no one knows for sure because this has never happened in this way before, and for this much time, you have to ask why?
Was it so that BP could save the well?
It has been said that a well placed device on or near the floor of the ocean, could have months ago stopped the leak.
But if that had happened, the well would have not been recovered.
So did BP ruin the fishing trade and nearly 25 percent of american food supplies for years to come?
Some say yes, others no, one thing for sure, this has gone on far too long and the idea that FEMA is not yet taken appreciable action is a real problem. We need to act, because this has gone on too long.
It would seem that the spin stops here slogan has over the last few weeks, been more of a the spin starts here.
Is Bill still the no spin zone, or is he letting everyone slide these days, is bill mellowing out, because this does not seem to be the no spin zone, anymore, when Juan Williams, can say that the earth is flat and bill says nothing, you just have to wonder, I mean really what is up…
Is fox just as bad as the other networks…
I like fox news, for the most part they at least try to tell the story, unlike some other media outlets, that do not tell the truth but allegedly tell lies all day long, in fact were a real disaster facing us, you would hear about it last on these other networks, they are for the most part liars, they do not report the news, they report by emotional digression.
This is not news, it is entertainment, and debauchery, (allegedly)
The thing is I caught Fox news doing the same thing and I find it disturbing, slanting the news is not OK, I do not care if you are a republican, or a democrat, spinning the news, (modern term which is the same as slanted news) which used to be a bad thing, back in the days of yore, when journalists were not entertainment oriented or beholding to the administration they were supposed to be reporting on, as with so many reporters who are now working at the white house, this is not right and would never have happened, back in the 60s or even 70s, reporting is not spinning the news, as we so often see on ALL the networks, even the vaunted, fair and balanced fox news.
Most of the time Fox news is better than any other network, but the other day I saw a video that was taken out of context, showing president obama, making a remark about BP, but it did not tell the context of his statement.
Now that was just wrong, it was not fair nor was it balanced, it was presented, in such a way as to appear to be one way when in fact it was something completely different.
Now this is not to say that, they do this all the time, but it is done and that is a problem, the news should not have to be fair and balanced, it should be the truth, but we are after all human, however, it is apparent that we need to examine the need to be fair and balanced, because our reporting should not be unbalanced, yet it is in many cases, or we would not need fox news at all.
It is a fact that we need balance, because we are not getting it in most of the news coverage today, that is far more disturbing than watching a new story that is slanted, when you see what amounts to lies all day long and a failure to cover the news along with a biased presentation to the extreme, that is worse by far.
We seem to be moving farther away from reporting and more and more toward entertainment, this is not only a mistake but a shame on those that went before…
I know that it is only human to hold opinions, however, it is not right to lie to the american people.
So here we are days and days, and still we have no answer, the nation that put a man on the moon can not fix this problem… Amazing…
Why wait, the clean up that took 30 days just to get started…
One Question here, well ok several, is this not an easy fix?
With all the great minds, working on this and the help of the US NAVY, this could have been stopped already.
However, it would be at the cost of the well, a huge investment, to be sure, but when will they decide to do the right thing.
Take the well out, and stop it, it is really just that easy, but I rather suspect that saving the investment is what they want…
Dont blame them, but after this much time, it is time, to put an end to this leaking…
Is the BP oil disaster, going to get better because of all the money they spent on commercials on TV…
Will it help those that are affected by the oil in the gulf?
What will be the long term effects of spewing millions of gallons of oil into the gulf?
How long will it last, ten years, twenty years, longer?
If we have a significant impact on fishing, and sea food, it could mean that up to 30 percent of americas food supply could end up as unsuitable to eat for up to 20 years…
Is BP really doing every thing they can do, what about the poor victims, are they being taken care of or is it as some news companies are suggesting, that a 1920s law is allowing very little to be received by the families of these brave and hard working men, this is sad, and it should not be allowed to happen…
With BP spending 50 Million dollars (allegedly) you might think that they could do a little better by those poor people in Louisiana, but so far it does in fact appear that they are getting nickels and dimes…
Every day this thing goes on the damage that is done is hard to realize, many fear that this is beyond anything that has been seen on this planet in the past, this is a man made disaster and it just seems impossible that we cannot get a sub down there to do some additional work, of course it would be unthinkable that they would not be doing everything they could to help the poor folks that have really been hurt by this.
One report was that allegedly these out of work boats and fisherman are getting subsidized, at the rate of 275 dollars per week, Oh, my, a whole 275, how generous of BP, allegedly, ( I sure hope it is more than that) of course if this thing is going to last for ten to 20 years, or more, than I guess you cant do it forever, what a mess this thing is, the one thing that I just do not understand, why is no one asking how this happened, with video, and everything that technology has to offer, why do we not know what caused this problem.
The oil spill is quickly getting out of hand it appears that no one knows how to fix the problem, and no one can do anything right, in the end, this will go down in history as the worst disaster in the history of the United States…
The disaster is getting worse, with oil slicks killing birds, and animals, destroying the fishing lanes for thousands of square miles at a time, yet, all we see is little from this administration, and were are all the protesters, they find time to protest just about everything else, including blaming everyone for their problems except themselves…
I have seen the face of ugly and its name is oil slick…
I have seen the terrible destruction and it is oil gushing into the gulf at rates unimaginable (allegedly)
I have seen the ecology people demonstrate and protest at the drop of a hat, but they have been strangely silent, why is that?
Are they all on vacation?
have they decided to protest, the third ring of saturn, where are the people that support the ecology, why are they not protesting this horrible and evil spill by what amounts to a company that is not even based in this country…
With Thousands and thousands of barrels of oil pouring into the gulf one has to wonder was it preventable.
One thing for sure, Houston we have a big big, huge, problem, Many are saying, that we have an unprecedented event which would result in the destruction of Millions of acres of sea life, water ways, and inland marshes, this could in fact be the worst ecological disaster in the history of the world.
What? No, the world?
Yes, the world, it could be terribly and completely the most horrible disaster we as human kind have ever faced.
The problem is that we did this, we allowed this to happen, either through a lack of security, or just plain stupidity, it really does not matter what caused it, what really matters now is how we fix it, and that is something that should have been done, more than 30 days in the past.
Perhaps, there is no way to fix it and the oil will continue to flood the gulf until all sea life is extinct.
While we hope that this does not happen, it is looking like at this time, we are facing not a short term problem at all, but a 10 or 20 years, before we can expect to be able to once again, have a safe gulf fishing experience.
yes that is if this administration, finds a fix for this problem…
