Is BP’s Macondo Well Site Still Leaking? Fresh Oil on the Gulf Raises Concerns and Haunting Memories | Stuart H. Smith, July 25, 2011:

Fresh oil is surfacing all over the northern quadrant of the Gulf of Mexico.

    I did not believe they had fixed it properly last year, and altho this is bad news, I want them to be held accountable.

    They ( BP ) did everything they could do to not pay people compensation, deal with the many, many illnesses that people are still suffering from, but had millions if not Billions of dollars for advertising.

    They amount of loasthing I have for this company goes beyond HATE, I want them destroyed.

    BP is owned by the queen, I recently read in the Guardian News, that they are going to break up BP 'because it was too big'.Meanwhile they have only paid out approx. 25% of the monies allocated for compensation. This is a travesty of justice !

    Bet the same toxic dispersants are already being sprayed to cover up the oil again!

  • Glad your posting more news again.Thumbs up!
