BP should be forced to find every available platform that can pump and hold oil.They should have every available pipe at the source site pumping at the max. They should have every other asset chasing any surface oil and pumping it. BP has six billion in cash reserve,make them use all of it.The Fed should get off its ass and do everything possible to keep the oil from reaching any shore. The endless conversation about liability is almost laughable given the extent of their very long term inaction and in the end consequence
If god forbid a nuke plant decides to have a problem are we going to spend our time talking about liability? Would the owner of the plant have 45 days to figure out how to stop the proverbial China syndrome while the Fed again does nothing?
We are doomed by Washington bureaucrats.

As we enter hurricane season, what is going to happen when hurricanes start to pick up the oil as they pass through the Gulf and bring it in land? I have not heard anything about this yet. Has this been thought?

What about the over 10's of thousands people that are about to be laid off as a result of the government's drilling moritorium. It's apparent from reports that BP's safety performance is the worst in the industry but, we don't shut down the entire airline industry when a plane crashes or the car industry even when a whole group of cars is found to be defective. The government is taking a horrible situation and doubling the negative impact to the people of Louisianna. If the ban is applied to the shallow waters too as some reports are now saying, the job loss will be into the six figures in louisianna on top of those already lost in the fishing industry.

It’s like.. No czar for you Gulf people!

And then it seems that everything Borak Obama touches or sets his mind to turns into destruction. The economy; the middle class; the future of the younger generations; the health care system; the off shore drilling; etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Even the all American cliché’ of blaming others such as “It’s George W. Bush fault” is also evermore loosing it’s luster.

BP oil spill. You have a 2 foot diameter out flow pipe with a broken uneven top due to a failed cut off. Why not run a 1 and 1/2 diameter pipe into the existing pipe with rubber O rings that completly seal the existing leak with the new pipe going to the surface? Simple plumbing.

if i were bill gates, i would sound a little more sympathetic about the lives lost at the rig. i know he's a great business man but you shouldn't sound like a business man all of the time. maybe he just cant help it because it's who he is. bill if you are reading make a donation please.
