Will it ever get better

Senator George LeMieux has gotten my attention.

Talk about anemic response…I think it is appalling that FEMA has not been activated. Seems like a “big” enough disaster for me. One thing I have noticed is the propensity for all the gov people/officials to pass pretty much everything off to BP. I went to the FEMA site, and found a small link to “Oil Spill Guidance” stating that “If you have been affected by the oil spill go to http://www.disasterassistance.gov for guidance.” Which by the way will take you to a site with a picture of a boat and one of those oil booms…and a link to a page that states “File a claim with BP” so this is just another site that will pass the affected “little people” over to yet another site… the BP website with a statement…

“BP deeply regrets the spill that has occurred in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Incident. BP takes full responsibility for responding to the Deepwater Horizon Incident”

Is there some sort of legal precedent that if they started actually doing the cleanup and taking the initiative and do something, and by they I mean the local, state and federal governments, does this take the legal responsibility off of BP?

And one more thing, I just heard from a pilot flying for BP, taking out Fed Wildlife Agency folks out to count the dead animals… apparently BP gets fined for each dead animal, $2,500 for each pelican, $100,000 for each dolphin etc., now BP has halted the search teams to only 3 hours a day. Because, as BP states…for safety reasons, too many planes and helicopter in the air during the day. This is bullshit. They are regulating when the fed agents can do the “dead counting” so they can get to those animals first.

It is so damn sickening and frustrating
