BP has abandoned its most recent “top kill” effort to contain its runaway oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, a company official announced Saturday evening.

“After three full days, we have been unable to overcome the flow,” said the company’s chief operating officer, Doug Suttles at a news conference in Robert, La. “. . . This scares everybody, the fact that we can’t make this well stop flowing, or the fact that we haven’t succeeded so far.”

  4. There’s more than just us, or coastal communities of fat amerigoonsm it’s aimed at the paradise of life, and also at Cuba, Mexico… Bring the solders home bomba, and fight this one, a genuine threat to our borders. Get them out of Iraqistan, all hands on deck here at home!

    I’ve finally lost capacity to comprehend policy, the absurdity has crossed into the yet more surreal.


  5. Let’s leave the politics & blame for minute, the relief wells are the only solution, it won’t happen till august, all this other stuff was a waste. Bring in the skimmers, stop with the friggin dispersants!

  6. Point – These are problems that we have pretended someone else will fix. Not going to happen, neighbors. Freedom is something that you have to take. Let’s get to it…

  7. Mike Papantonio starts by saying that BP controls Obama, which is true. Then he back peddles by making excuses for the puppet saying Obama must not be able to read, and that he is mistaken about his decisions. Papantonio, you ran out of things to say and you chickened out. Here’s is the language you were looking for – It is primary that citizens track BP executives and their government puppets and agitate, embarrass and press in upon them everywhere they rear their treasonous selves.

  8. Amazing how this information is getting about 5% of the corporate-owned mainstream media coverage the supposed “fix” got 3 days ago….

    Leaving the impression in the minds of millions that the situation is now somehow “solved”, and it’s OK to go back to watching “CSI”.
