"They are literally shrimping in oil" says eyewitness -- "It's criminal" that officials keep waters open


Despite Heavy Oil, Louisiana Keeps Fisheries Open, Dahr Jamail for Inter Press Service, October 26, 2010:

Massive slicks of weathered oil were clearly visible near Louisiana's fragile marshlands in both the East and West Bays of the Mississippi River Delta during an overflight that included an IPS reporter on Oct. 23. ...

"They are literally shrimping in oil," Jonathan Henderson, the Coastal Resiliency Organiser for the environmental group Gulf Restoration Network, who was also on the flight, exclaimed as our plane flew over shrimpers trawling in the oil-covered area...

Earlier on the same day IPS spotted the oil, a spotter pilot for LDWF had flown over the same area and told Southern Seaplanes there was no oil.

"He is the spotter for LWDF and saw that bay, and it is still open," Henderson told IPS. "He should have closed the bay for fishing. So now you can see how sophisticated they are in tracking this. Either this guy is completely incompetent, or has an agenda to keep as much of Louisiana's waters open for fishing as he can, whether there is oil or not. I don't see how he could have flown down there today and not seen it. It's criminal."

    HOW MANY OF YOU GET IT!!! It is time for fire under a sheriff and DA’s ASS! Go to their house with 10,000 people birdflew and phuck the damn letters or dressing up to the nines as Biscuit suggested; unless you’re carrying a gilded pitch fork and ax and visiting their sanctuaries! Like the gay community struck fear in the hearts of the MORONS in Utah!

    I would happily lead the charge and sacrifice it all to end this global plague of death dealers! Guess who would be beside me and behind me; not you birdflew… and that is the point… no spark, no heart, no passion for the lives of our friends, families, neighbors, or planet. They aren’t reading letters. They are watching them fill planes and skiffs with COREXIT; coming out of an orifice near you soon!

    I am ready for the call from my countrymen and women in these infected States and I am weening myself off of these Petro/Chem scum day by day; from their crooked banks to their unhealthy food substitutes.

    Your rights… unalienable rights are guaranteed protected by you and your SHERIFF who is elected to serve the people! Watch this video link birdflew http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaEKB8pU2Tw&feature=&p=DB0A5E9EE69C1E46&index=0&playnext=1 and anyone else and see how YOU GET IT DONE! Then come talk shit! It seems I’ll have to wait until this winter when the tides drive this indescribable PHUCKING nightmare to the Texas shores.

    Hear me now you soulless, OIL FILLED, MOTHER PHUCKERS I will be the wall IN TEXAS that crumbles down on top of you and covers you in DUST!

    These posters are right on, but how do you wake the dead? I am in the hot zone here in the gulf and I can tell you no one will listen! You and I both know that that a plague of illness is the wind, but all the gulf residents care about is "clean looking beaches" and "tourist money". Do they truly think this won't get a million times worse than it is? We have not even begun to feel the effects yet. This whole area will literally collapse. In the years to come the whole GOM will be a wasteland. Chemicals will have seeped into even the tiniest crevice destroying the core existence of life. The "domino effect" has begun, yet all that is heard is silence.
