But....but ....but Florida tourism bureau and BP say it's safe to hang out around there, so it has to be fine. I heard it on faux news so I know it's true

There is no way in hell that the gulf is all "cleaned up" and everything is okay the way the media is trying to spin it. It's like it's all being swept under the rug, those that live there and people with a shred of common sense know better. That whole coast line is going to be a apocalyptic like dead zone before long. I for one don't plan on going anywhere near the gulf, ever again!!

What the hell...let's let 'em do it again.

quick excerpt from the article...

Quote:
Dr Ott said: "People are already dying from this… I’m dealing with three autopsy’s right now. I don’t think we’ll have to wait years to see the effects like we did in Alaska, people are dropping dead now. I know two people who are down to 4.75 per cent of their lung capacity, their heart has enlarged to make up for that, and their esophagus is disintegrating, and one of them is a 16-year-old boy who went swimming in the Gulf."
Glad to see that human beings are just as expendable as the fish in BP, Coast Guard and our Governemts eyes.

Comparing Al Jazeera and Fox? GTFO

Absolutely, they both have their political axes to grind.

I agree, it's the country's negative perception for the years to come that will hurt the gulf coast states the most. Maybe I'm simply an ignoramus (very likely ), but I think the spill has been hyped completely out of proportion. The most recent estimates have the spill somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 million gallons (which I understand is a HUGE amount). The EPA estimates the Gulf of Mexico to hold 643 QUADRILLION GALLONS of water. That would be roughly analogous to a Coke can of oil in the Superdome if it were filled with water. Just sayin'.
