Well well well….isn’t that interesting ?
Democratic Congressman Gene Taylor representing the good people of the 4th district of Mississippi recently toured the Gulf oil spill and this is what he had to say.
““I want people to know that is this is not Hurricane Katrina. This is not Armageddon. I did oil prevention and response during my 13 years in the Coast Guard many years ago. The oil spill is certainly bad. And it’s terrible that there’s a spill out there. But I would remind people that the oil is twenty miles from any marsh. The spill starts breaking up in smaller pieces naturally. “As the Commandant (of the Coast Guard, Admiral Thad Allen) pointed out, there’s going to be places that look like chocolate milk. That’s maybe 15% of the total spill. But the rest of it looks more like a diesel fuel sheen and as you get to the edges of it as the Commandant said, it gets a lot thinner.”
“I’ve had a lot of people stop me … it almost strikes me as the day after Katrina. People are that concerned. I wish this never happened. Yes it’s bad out there. But it’s not on our shore. … And the oil is tending to break up the farther you get from the source, which is a good thing.”
Well that’s certainly different from what we have been hearing now isn’t it….?
Wasn’t this spill supposed to destroy all coastal commerce for decades to come or something like that….?
Wasn’t this the last week that we would ever see a Gulf shrimp or oyster for the rest of our adult lives or something….?
Yesterday I even heard somebody talk about how this was going to affect the east coast of Florida.
The east coast !!!
The media definitely has been scaring the bejeesus out of anyone who lives on the Gulf and that ain’t no lie.
You know it is true.
They went nuts over this and frightened a lot of people.
I tell you what I know.
I know I have not seen any video of dead birds.
I have not seen any video of a large massive viscous slick.
I have not even seen any footage of anything more recent than a week ago.
Why can’t someone show us this malevolent slick of death ready to destroy all Gulf coastline as we know it.
Maybe it is because they can’t.
But don’t believe me.
I’m just some guy on the internet.
What do I know….?
But if you don’t believe me then listen to a man who flew over the spill and seen it for himself.
Allow me to present to you a calmer opinion.
I tried to embed to damn video three times .
It won’t stick.
