Guest Post: Gulf Oil Spill … Mission Accomplished or Ongoing Crisis?

Washington’s Blog

The corporate media has almost entirely stopped covering the Gulf oil spill.

Many have tried to say that the effects of the spill are not nearly as bad as feared, and that everything is pretty much cleaned up and back to normal.

But today, it is widely being reported that there are currently massive stretches of weathered oil spotted in the Gulf of Mexico .

And websites like Florida Oil Spill Law (FOSL) have tirelessly been reporting on the Gulf oil spill this whole time.

To give an example of the ongoing crisis in the Gulf, here’s a roundup of some of the top stories from FOSL from the past 3 days:

In related news, the government – always eager to immediately get to the bottom of what is really going on and then to fully publicize the results – has sent crucial Gulf samples to be analyzed in a lab . . . in Poland (all of the American labs are apparently busy testing the toxicity of hinky mortgages, mortgage backed securities, CDOs and naked CDSs). And the result will be shipped back by slow boat: NOAA isn’t expecting results back until the end of the year.

    Please, could someone tell to the americans that they live in a rigged political system?

    Please, could someone tell to americans that the differences between USA of Obma and Russia of Puttin arent real?

    Please, could someone tell to americans that the nasty behaviour of americans forces in Middle East is destroying our faith in USA?

    Hey, please, wake up. The world is changing and loosing the faith in USA, as an fair state and seeong as only a new rogue state?

    Hey, the world needs a good USA, not this current USA.

    Please, the war is coming…

    Best regards.

    Since the spill is all officially cleared up someone should invide the Obama family down to a celebratory dinner of freshly caught Gulf delicacies.

    This is the biggest bull crap I have heard in a while. I was there during the clean of gulf and it is clean. People are fishing, selling fish and eating fish. Sheer greed. Billins of dollars have changed hands and noone want that to stop.

    Yves – go there and take a look for youself. These people what you have quoted are crooks. You have a serious and well respected blog site. Dont let causes such as these affect your reputation.

    I’m just waiting for next episode of American idol. Who cares about the gulf anyway! Suck it you little helpless birdies and fishies.

    Obama’s gonna save us – yes he will.
    He’s the new messiah – just drink the swill!
    Lies and more lies – they sound good to me
    He’s just like Jesus – walkin’ on Galilee…..
