Yes, the LIVE FEED of the oil spill in The Gulf will literally turn your stomach, so I understand if you don't want to watch it or leave a comment. If you do want to see it, please note that the camera occasionally moves and becomes as dull as watching paint peel. Just wait for a few minutes and it will return to the live feed of oil gushing from the unplugged well 5,000' below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. What else can possibly be said except that it's changing our world as Americans, by the minute.
From what I understand, we should be praying that a hurricane doesn't decide to spin into the Gulf Coast. It could multiply the current disaster by 100 times or more. I've never been so scared for our country's southern coastline as I am now. I also detest the idiots at BP more than ever. I'm fighting mad and I'm considering making a pilgrimage of sorts to the Gulf Coast in order to help in any way I can.
Somehow, some way, we have got to get that 5,000' well plugged but nothing BP wants to do has helped. Reportedly, British Petroleum is hiring the best in the world to help, but I seriously doubt they have gone to such lengths, considering their history. It's all just hot air. Hot air that I'm becoming tired of hearing. It's all just Blah! Blah! Blah!
BP is still trying to drill two relief wells, but they each take two months (at the very least) to reach depth. However, this is the ultimate *fix* for this oil spill problem. So, I'm thinking that this should probably be a required step BEFORE drilling any other off shore wells (although being so outrageously expensive makes it a no go). Unfortunately, government regulations have been ignored (like forever) when drilling commences. Uh-huh. Go. Figure.
It is time for us, as American citizens, to make sure our thoughts and hearts are heard by Washington. Write your congressman and your senator and let them know that this IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. Tell them you want to see some regulation monitoring in the drilling of oil wells. It's time to necessitate a change in Washington people. If you stay quiet, then nothing will ever change. Let your voices be heard by way of the written word. Please don't just sit back thinking you can't change anything. Together we can surely make a difference, but EVERYONE HAS TO GET INVOLVED to make this work. Apathy could kill this country and everything that we've ever loved about our country.
Are you going to sit around pretending it's all okay or are you going to stand up and let your voice be heard? It depends on each & every one of us. So, are you a Warrior or a Wimp?
