I'll Have My Red Snapper Sauteed In Light Sweet Crude Please

If this doesn't sicken you, then I don't know what will. This is picture of my beautiful pristine Gulf of Mexico, despoiled by 210,000 gallons of light sweet crude oil a day, being spilled into it!

There are effective devices mandated by more responsible oil producing nations, that will remotely shut off the flow of oil in the event of a spill, but our business centric governmental representatives (read that as Republicans and shameless blue dog Democrats), thought that too much of a burden on corporate enterprise!

Well, I hope they enjoy their fetid, belly up Gulf shrimp, grouper and snapper, sauteed in a pan full of of light sweet crude! Sons of bitches!

"light sweet crude". You gotta love such an innocent name for it, haven't you.

It's not much to be positive about, but coastlines do recover:

The type of coastline has much to do with how effective clean up efforts and natural recovery are. Unfortunately the coastline most threatened by this spill is neither sandy beach, nor rocky shore. It is the tidal marshlands of the Mississippi River delta, where there is no wave action and, human cleanup efforts will be extremely difficult, if not impossible.

Damn, now all I am gonna be thinking about is how I can sneak down there and set the gulf on fire. That has got to be a lovely sight seeing the ocean burn, *contented sigh*
