The GUARDIAN returned yesterday from a visit to Florida yesterday and it was interesting to see how many folks are “standing in the welfare line” that leads directly to BP.
While we agree that BP should pay “all legitimate claims” and their leaking well has killed 11 humans (even though they may be small people), we noticed a wide assortment of motels, restaurants, fishermen, and others ready to blame the oil giant for their economic woes. Areas currently “clean” are caught between telling the world to come visit their pristine beaches and setting the stage to make claims against BP or the government for “lost revenues.”
From POET PAUL–
The situation in the gulf is getting hotter
And makes for political fodder
With the Prez and BP’s deal
They really make us feel
It’s like mixing oil with water!
