I am Really Mad – No More Oil – Open Your Eyes!

All the oil is gone right? Just listen to the national news. Time to lift the swim ban … it’s lifted … small children are now swimming on Dauphin Island. Area seafood … of course it’s safe? There’s just one big problem. The oil was still here last week when the no-more-oil PR campaign began, and right now the oil is still CLEARLY VISIBLE … RIGHT ON THE SURFACE … AS BAD AS EVER … IN THE MISSISSIPPI SOUND … WITHIN 100 YARDS OF DAUPHIN ISLAND.

"This isn't the oil you're looking for." "This isn't the oil we're looking for." "Move along." "Move along."

Remember Star Wars: “This isn’t the oil you’re looking for.” “This isn’t the oil we’re looking for.” “Move along.” “Move along.” Time to open our eyes! Photographed August 4, 2010.

    Thanks for sharing this! There is nothing more insulting in life than to be lied to and having your intelligence attacked. They (BP) and our Government officials are using emotional warfare to attack. They have no regard for human or animal life.

  • I’m collecting rainwater for analysis in my backyard as I write this. We have noticed many changes in our yard. The Gulf Fritillary Butterfly which is usually all over our passion flowers has not come. The vines in our trees are dying… other stuff, too… I had a slight ‘different’ kind of sore throat which went away when I left town for the Atlantic coast last week … I’m wondering if it will come back now … something is wrong.

    I am so sad about the oil and the long term effects.
    I sent this to a person I considered a friend. If not, an honest upstanding person. He is employed by a news giant…Now, he is spending much time working to discredit this blog, your photos, and you. I am sorry.
    It shows that there is motive in keeping up the show of all is well and clean now.

  • It is what it is. These are not ‘fake’ photos… I don’t understand the desire to discredit simple honest truth. Erica: Tell your ‘friend’ to come look for himself. I’m sure Leo would be happy to show him so he can see first hand.

    I told that person something much less cordial. :) I don’t think Leo could speak slow enough for him to comprehend anyway.

  • Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
