    This is very scary what is happening in our world! Innocent animals are dying !!! We are taking this very lightly in my opinion, that's only because basically nothing has been done to alleviate this HUGE DISASTER!! All we do is talk about it, really come on we cannot shut this thing off or find a way... have we given up?? This is entirely a major crisis!!! Is the beyond anything that we can handle .....???

    Mr. Wolf reported that a viewer approached him as he was doing a standup and offered his opinion that "We ought to stop worrying about the blame and concentrate on stopping the leak." That person doesn't seem to understand that this is a crime scene, that the deaths of 11 people must be investigated and the guilty punished. Establishing responsibility and accountability for the criminally negligent actions that caused this catastrophe is essential.

    Mr. Wolf ought to try to explain to CNN's viewers that the damage to the environment begins with the tiny organisms at the bottom of the food chain, includes the soil and sediment, the vegetation, etc., and that all of these are as significant as the birds, reptiles, and marine mammals.

    It would seem to me that BP should have had a plan for an oil spill like this. Why would our Goverment approve deep water oil wells if there was not a fell safe plan to shut it down if something like this happened ? As most big companys say now, " there are not any accidents, only incidents caused by human error". So it comes back to who to blame. Our "Goverment" or "BP". The goverment should have never let deep water Oil well drilling begin unless there was a safty plan in place to shut it down. Where is OSHA ? Why do we not here from them on this ? Why are other deep water oil wells
    still running ? OSHA would surely shut down other big companys unless all the safty precautions were not in place before startup.
    Our Goverment says they don't have the people with the Knowledge
    to know what to do in a situation like this . But they approved the deep water oil drilling !?! ...... How Could They do this to us ?...... How did this get passed by our leaders ?...... Once agin our leaders in Goverment have let us down, and once agin we all pay the price.

    Select Republican and their Psycho-Babble remarks in regards to the Oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico, feel free to add your own:

    BP CEO Tony (soon to resign in disgrace) Hayward, 'The Oil spill was 'tiny' compared with the volume of water in the Gulf of Mexico'.

    The Republican darling and Queen of the Tea Potty movement Sarah (Drill baby Drill) Palin, '"Radical environmentalists: you are damaging the planet with your efforts to lock up safer drilling areas. There's nothing clean and green about your misguided, nonsensical radicalism, and Americans are on to you as we question your true motives."

    Fox News entertainers and king of psycho babblers Rush Limbaugh and Brit Hume, 'More oil is spilled every year in Africa, and in Nigeria than so far in the Gulf. So it's not unique, its not exceptional'.

    Fox News entertainers and king of psycho babblers Rush Limbaugh and Brit Hume,'The Gulf of Mexico annually absorbs crude Oil equivalent to twice the Exxon Valdez spill, the current crisis is overblown'

    Fox News entertainers and king of psycho babblers Rush Limbaugh and Micheal (Heckva Job) Brown,'They played politics with this crisis, This is exactly what they want, because now President Obama can pander to the environmentalists and say 'I'm going to shut this down because it's too dangerous'

    Surprisingly of the above bobble-heads, the sole voice showing any reason and sense of sanity is none other than Fidel Castro's remark!

    Fidel Castro on the Gulf of Mexico Gusher, 'The Oil Spill shows how little governments can do against those who control the capital and money'

    Can those yellow oil absorbing pads that T J Holmes just had demonstrated on Saturday Morning be used to clean oil off of birds?
