I realize there isn't any GOOD news about the oil spill, but among the countless bits of BAD news on it, here are a few big ones:

Anyone else sick of living in a country with a government that is so clearly for, by, and of the corporations?

I used to think that big corporation had conservative values because conservative values include free enterprise as a major issue. I've come to discover that big corporation have no values other than making money.

Here we have one of the most liberal administrations in history and the big corporations are just as much in bed with them as the previous administration.

Follow the money.

I was reading on the pompous palate that the oil spill may just make BlueFin Tuna extinct. They are already on the banned fishing list in the Mediterranean. The Gulf is the only other place to find Blue fin Tuna.

you hit the nail on the head Kevin, Obama faces his toughest test so far. The percentages between republicans and democrats are in opposite directions on his whole handling of the situation. how will the public vote?

"... all of the marine life poisoned in the Gulf ... " How we can save any creature from this danger?! If the marine life is end? How about us?

I felt so bad for the wildlife that's affected by this oil spill. Is there anything the locals can help regarding this accident?

Another sad and tragic "accident" that can be directly related to our dependancy on oil. How long are we going to let the big oil companies hold us hostage to our need for oil to fuel our energy needs?

There are plenty of alternative energy sources available for further development.

All one has to do is search "alternative energy source" and you will find hundreds, if not thousands of good ideas for other ways, besides oil to supply electricity as well as fuel our cars.

Let's all keep those people affected by the latest oil disaster in our thoughts and prayers, but lets also consider how we can help stop this dangerous way of supplying our energy needs.

:(

I feel so bad for the wildlife.

If we have to find anything positive in this mess it could be a serious push for alternative energy sources. I hope that this is a fact but it's really sad if we need a catastrophe like this to get our eyes to open.
