Now if only Algor were as successful... :)
Does appear to be cautiously good news; we can only hope that pressure
holds indefinitely and don't have/cause another blowout somewhere along
the bore hole.
At least even if so, they can now capture virtually all if not all
instead of only a fraction while finish up the bottom kill process.

Huh? You do understand that BP did several sleazy things to cut corners
in building the rig, including warnings about blowouts, which actually led
TO the blowout, right? And that BP has created one of the worst pollution

Nope, plenty of blame for both sides there. BP was a huge supporter of
The One's election as well.
bp-related-dollars-in-2008/?fbid=ahPbi1IQPj-> It is looking like BP was instrumental in in getting the Locherbie bomber released to enhance the
potential for getting drilling rights in Libya.
The administration OTOH did a number of things making this worse than it
needed to be:
1) Dragged their feet on allowing LA to set up sand berms to protect the
beaches and inlands because they weren't happy with where the sand was being
2) Halted skimmers and other boats in order to perform inspections for fire
extinguishers and life vests, thereby delaying cleanup efforts and worsening
the spill's effect on beaches
3) Insistence upon treating treated ocean water from skimmers as "hazardous
waste" instead of suspending EPA rules and allowing the skimmers to work.
The reason? Skimmers only get 95% of the oil, thus discharging the skimmed
seawater with 5% oil (95% less than they took in) would be discharging
pollution into the ocean. A bit of common sense here would recognize that
5% is a darn site better than 100% oil, but it was better to either not have
the skimmers work (leaving 100% oil in the gulf) or limit their efficiency
because they had to collect both oil and treated water for disposal inland.
Not to mention the limitations on the press covering the cleanup effort,
hiring Blackwater or Blackwater-like guards to keep news crews away from
those beaches hardest hit. Yeah, great transparency you've got there Chief.
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
As compared to the Alaskan spill a couple of decades ago, it will not be
as bad as the Alaskan spill was somewhat contained in the bay, the BP
spill is in open sea.
I believe the Mexican oil spill that occurred several years ago was
worse the the BP Spill.
"He" (assuming ur talking about BHO) didn't do anything, except put off any
help we could have had week one to help contain the spill. "He" continues to
show he has no executive experience (duh)
and is a complete looser. He makes Carter look like a good deal. Glad the
Dem's rule will be over soon. Guess it's time for HIM to take another
How's that hope and change working for ya?
What a bunch of crap.

Wow, there are that many left? (Unfortunately, my Bay Area family is
still braindead over The Chosen One. <deep, sad sigh>)

Exercise ferments the humors, casts them into their proper channels,
throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions,
without which the body cannot subsist in its vigor, nor the soul act
