A DROP IN THE BUCKET---THE GREAT OIL SPILL HYPE!


So there will be no misunderstanding I blame BP for the oil spill in the Gulf and the President of the United States for the sorry way the clean up effort has gone.  This is a tragedy and I do not seek to minimize it.  I just think the news media and politicians have exploited this event for varying reasons.  Our great "Community Organizer" may be great at lining up undocumented voters at the polls, but when it comes to something of this magnitude he is totally out of his league!

This is the greatest oil spill in American history! A tragedy for those fisherman and businesses along the Gulf Coast. An accident that will bring death to thousands of birds and tens of thousands of marine creatures. But to hear the talking heads on the various networks one would think this is the end of life in the Gulf of Mexico, an unparalleled eco disaster.  For too long we have let the "greenies" define the environment.  They have successfully defined the eco-system as a fragile child, when in reality "Mother Nature" is anything but fragile---she is a tough old lady who will be around when we are all gone. 

Let me put the oil spill in a somewhat different light. The Gulf contains over 660 quadrillion gallons of water and if the hole in bottom of the Gulf spews some 10-100 million gallons of oil (at this time the amount of oil leaking is just a estimate) that would mean that the amount of oil in the Gulf would be 1-10 parts oil to about 1 billion parts of water. Not even a "drop in the bucket", not even the drop in the large swimming pool,  more like a drop in a lake!  To give you a better idea of what 10 million gallons is, " the Mississippi River empties that much water into the Gulf every 2 seconds". This is not the end of the world, this is not the end of the Louisiana wetlands, but  iscause for concern but not for panic!  So beware of the "HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE!" for it will only increase in order to advance various agenda's!
