Oil and destruction

Oil continues to destroy life and the environment in the Gulf Coast.

The US government continues to let those responsible decide how much they want to accept responsibility. The rightwing powers continue to insist that those who owned, operated, controlled, and benefited from the rig (as well as those who crafted the operating guidelines) are not responsible. (It is interesting that those same powers insist on supposed "personal responsibility".)

Corporate power continues to rule over state power.

Even the shit used to "clean" the oil spill is toxic.

Will all this continue to erode the faith people have in government? How about capitalism?

Clean up may be "impossible" (... unless humans stop their meddling?)

Capitalism cannot protect the environment.
