What A Waste

It is likely that all of you have heard that they closed the beach at Pensacola because they are finding tar balls, or, oil.

We visited this beach the night before they closed it.

It is absolutely beautiful.

Just a few pictures to show what incompetence on a corporate and governmental level is costing us.

What a complete shame!

For the 'green' party who yammers constantly about the environment, they sure don't much care about stopping this!

It is heartbreaking.

Brooke, same with the Hollywood celebs. They don't have Bush to blame anymore. If they are critical now, it would be of Hussein

Cube, agreed

There just aren't any words...

I was in the Panama City area for six months, Sept. 80 - Mar 81. I will never be the same in my lifetime.

In my humble opinion, it was the 'green' party yammerers who are to blame for the spill, mot Bush or BP. They yammered till the oil companies weren't allowed to drill closer to shore where they can control such spills in shallow waters.

In my view, the Gulf areas affected by this horrific oil spill will not recover in our lifetimes -- if ever.

Meanwhile, BHO does what?

Yup, Florida beaches are lovely. :-) Thanks for the pics.

I've been seeing commercials on TV lately encouraging people to go to South Walton Beach; guess they're worried about tourism dropping.

Chuck said...

Phil, I tend to agree. It sure would be nice to try to cap this hole in 300 - 400 foot of water

AOW, I know. Valdez is just starting to recover

Karen, I think they have a lot to worry about.

The areas affected by the oil spill will return to their thriving pre-spill conditions within 3-5 years. Too many stupid people without a clue saying the most unbelievable doom an gloom nonsense, have overwhelmed the common sense of the collective rationale.

Anonymous, where do I start?

First, good way to have some balls and post a name/track back.

I suspect your 3-5 years is, at best, false. At worse, it's a lie. At the least, give something to support your contention.

But, forgetting all of that. Let's assume you are correct. It is then okay to pollute it?

I will never be accused of being a tree-hugger, trust me. But being concerned about a company destroying a beautiful beach and a local economy like this is not "unbelievable doom an gloom nonsense" (BTW, if you're going to come here and act like an idiot, check your spelling)

As far as the stupid remark, piss off
