Id say greedy big businesses that cut corners, that are negligent with safety regulations and risk the lives of their employees for a dollar, that destroy the environment, that destroy the lively hoods of fellow citizens, and then when asked about it in front of everybody, they point the finger at someone else. I hate those people all day long easily over politicians and lawyers.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I find this weird:
BreakingNews

Coast Guard says tar balls discovered on Florida Keys shoreline Tuesday were not from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

where else would tar balls be coming?

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

Coast Guard: Key West tar balls not from BP spill - MarketWatch
Quote:
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The U.S. Coast Guard said Wednesday that tar balls found in Key West, Fla. in recent days don't match the chemical composition of oil leaking from the site of the sunken Deepwater Horizon rig in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. A sampling of tar balls discovered on beaches at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, Fla., Smathers Beach in Key West, Big Pine Key, Fla., and Loggerhead Key in the Dry Tortugas National Park, Fla. were flown on Tuesday by a Coast Guard jet to New London, Conn. for testing and analysis. "The results of those tests conclusively show that the tar balls collected from Florida Keys beaches do not match the type of oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico," the Coast Guard said. "The source of the tar balls remains unknown at this time."
How's that for scary?

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

We have relatives that live close to Pensacola, FL. Tar balls show up from time to time and are naturally occuring, according to the locals. I dont know what they come from though.

When a private business that's regulated for safety by the Fed has a major accident resulting in loss of life and devastating environmental impact.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I love how all the conservatives have become eco-freaks when a disaster occurs while a Dem is in office.

How have the policies of regulation significantly changed since the Bush Admin? Or better yet since the last 10-15 years? It hasn't. This same thing could have happened if McCain had won.

Don't see how this a Dem or a Rep thing.
