Oily words can't hide the sticky truth~Jarvis DeBerry
~"It is what it is" is one of the most vacuous phrases going, but those who use it sound profound compared to folks who try to make what is what it ain't. For the last five years the people of New Orleans and South Louisiana have had a pretty good idea of what it is. It was faulty engineering during Hurricane Katrina. It's been the destruction of our coast and the idling of our fishermen after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig.

During oil spill, scientists get their 15 minutes of fame
~Since the April 20 oil rig explosion and subsequent well leak, reporters have turned to academics who hold advanced degrees in fields most people can't even comprehend to explain the situation. They face several challenges in trying to help the nonscientific community understand the spill and its consequences. "Most of us aren't the most extroverted people in the world," said Susan Ustin, a professor of environmental and resource science at University of California, Davis. "We're not used to being in the center of attention, and most of us have a fear of putting our foot in our mouth."
~But...What Would Ivor Say? WWIS??
~"The damage from the oil coming ashore is overstated", "The oil has impacted only tens of miles" ~Ivor van Heerden, NPR, June 5th, 2010. (4min 36sec fame:)
~Editilla just gotta axe~
"Tens of Miles"? How about 26,053 square miles of the Gulf?

BPirates get help from former Clinton disaster expert
~Po'Bo Dudley DooWrong, BP's new PEO (Punk Exec Off) for their oil crime public relations, says he asked James Witt to go to New Orleans to review what the company is doing and how it can improve its response to its massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
~Po'Bo Dudley DooWrong,
New head BP PEO of Gulf spill cleanup (and Michael Brownie Brown Look'A'Like) says he's concerned Americans are rushing to judgment! Waaaaa!

~I was on Bourbon Street last night, and I swear to Papa Legba, it was raining beer, whiskey and strange, multi-colored, plastic orbs fastened to strings! I looked up to the heavens and saw a vision of Mother Mary's bosom in the sky, as if she was symbolically nurturing every one below.

~Jalapnik.com mentions, however that "The effects of seawater emulsification and the introduction of BP's dispersant of choice, Corexit 9500, may be allowing some degree of evaporation into the water cycle."
~BP’s oil spill-fighting dispersant of choice is Corexit 9500. It has been banned in Europe for good reason. Corexit 9500 is one of the most environmentally enduring, toxic chemical dispersants ever created to battle an oil spill. Add to that the millions of gallons of oil that have been burned, releasing even more toxins into the atmosphere, and you have a recipe for something much worse than acid rain.
~Remember how Katrina ripped all the way to Ohio.
And of course there was Rita (at right) and Gustav.
All had similar land tracks.

By the way, Horatio watched the video of Kindra Arnesen and must say that stopping the oilcano is probably gonna be easier than stopping her. ~@:>

See if you want to post this article, Editilla. I am really impressed with Kindra: http://www.opednews.com/articles/PROFILES-IN-COURAGE-Forge-by-Mac-McKinney-100624-625.html

No Prob. We ran her video yesterday and I have been forwarding it to (so far) 57 people.
Screw running this woman as President though, I'd much rather have here in charge of the Office Of Oil Industry Intelligence (OOOII)!
And I'm not kidding.

Editilla said...

Thanks Ho!
You out-did yer'self on this one.
God I hope Mrs Kindra has some Cajun Boyz watching her back. She's like one'a'dem womenz you read about in the Revolutionary War, or occupied France.
We must strengthen our Underground for the long haul of this New World Order War.
No we don't need Kindra for President. We need her right here with us Sinn Féin!
