BP Says “top-kill” worked, but drilling wells right next to it

Supposedly to ease the pressure. How about THIS supposition instead. BP trashed the ocean very thoroughly, the bottom-up killoff of marine life is in progress, the species that are being more than merely decimated provide the food for every other life form. There’s an investigation supposedly happening in the area of the well collapse. An investigation BP has stalled for months by “fumbling” around “trying” to stop the oil. Knowing full well that in doing so they were stomping all around the Crime Scene. Which is what it IS. Even cutting out the obvious crime of destroying what looks like the damn how to put this? OK so I’ll put it where a Far Right Profit-is-God Money Worshiper like Rush Limbaugh can understand. Economic crime in the theft of Trillions.

Put a dollar value on what’s going to happen to just the Seafood Industry. The fisheries are trashed and going to get worse. Rush was on the air just before the non-enforcement of existing regulations and cutting even those down to where they wouldn’t make a difference… WHINING that regulations to protect some of the species that form the web of life in the sea would limit “Sport Fishing”. And screaming like the bitch that he is about how “all those poor Fishing Boat outiftters and Fishing Tour providers were going to be losing money”.

Where’s the concern for them NOW, on the far right? And that’s just one small facet of fisheries management. The corals, not pretty rocks on the bottom but the living coral, the organisms that build the reefs. Endangered by a shrimping practice that was destroying the reefs, killing the living coral, and in a chain reaction, was killing off the shrimp. Not So? Read on…

One of the processes was to promote the growth of organisms that the coral normally feed on.

Some of which are to shrimp what anthrax is to humans. And of course the whole food web.

Maybe food web is too complex for a Right Wing so-called “mind” to fathom.<<nautical joke.

So we go with their more familiar linear Food Chain. Which goes straight up, never sideways and of course, never down. The part of the "bottom" supposedly magically regenerates itself, and placing one species on the "top" is kind of chauvinistic.

Which affected every other aspect of the food linear "chain" including the Sport Fishermen that Rush boo-hooed about so much. Oh, that's right, it's Glenn Beck who does the fake crying.

The process is just beginning, the vast majority of the oil is still in the water, combined with chemical dispersants… which are Toxic. Hidden away where most people won't see it.

Trillions of dollars later they'll see it.

And of course, in the Right wing so-called "mind" nothing that happens in the sea could ever possibly have any effect on the Food Chain web of life on land.

According to their screed, events on LAND don't affect life on land.

Just ask the bees, bats and frogs before they all go extinct. You'd get a more intelligent conversation talking to a frog than talking to a Right Winger anyway.

So, BP is destroying evidence, even if it were unintentional they would still know about it. Keeping REAL investigators, those who aren't directly employed by the company and thus sworn in advance to not find any evidence that would harm the Company, away from the crime scene for months.

Leaving aside the economic Massacre that WILL cost Human Lives, there's also the 11 crewmen on the rig that the company admits died. BP and Massey Energy and Exxon Mobil and Halliburton and all of their assorted nasty little accomplices in the destruction of the world don't give a DAMN about human life any more than they do about the frogs, bats, bees, shrimp or coral.

They don't give a damn about people who DON'T work for them, and they don't give a damn about people who DO work for them either.

And, after hiding all the evidence "unintentionally" or "unavoidably" they now get rewarded for their Crimes with TWO wells where they only had the ONE contracted. The "relief" well is the "First" relief well, which means that there's going to be a Second.

And it's all a measure of safety, never you worry your pretty little heads, let the Grown Ups make the decisions even though they consistently made really STUPID decisions that will end up costing the whole of humanity more than we, the whole of humanity, can afford.

Meanwhile Rush Limbaugh says Obama is trying to "break the back" of BP instead of consistently pussing out on enforcing the rights of the People to not be killed by BP.
