How About a Real Issue from Windows to Russia…

I woke up this morning and fired up the computer. I was greeted with an onslaught of disgusting comments and e-mails that centered around the Russia and America Spy issue. I have spent almost 2 hours going through all these comments and e-mails. The spam and cussing filters work really good by the way. I wanted to save the ones that at least tried to comment…

I have expressed interest in this spy bull because it involves Russia. If I lived somewhere else in the world, I would have cared less about Russian spies in America. If I was in America I would have cared less about Russian spies in America. I most likely would have never written about it…

What I would be writing about if I lived in America is the Gulf Oil Lie…

I am following what is happening and I can tell you something. We are in big trouble. I have lived in Florida and I know how beautiful that the Gulf Waters can be.

The big news is being very poorly done over the Gulf Oil Lie. Example is, I just read an article by BBC and normally they are very neutral but in this case it was a text book cover up article. It was a hunky dory everything will be just peachy keen when they get that new cap in place… (How many new caps?)

One thing that bothers me and I really hope that if you are old enough, you remember, the 1979 oil disastor that spewed oil for nine months, devastated marine life and covered the Texas and Mexican coasts with gobs of crude. Florida was a long ways from that spill…

There really are strong parallels between the two spills. Like the Deepwater Horizon spill, the Ixtoc 1 spill on June 3, 1979, involved the failure of a blowout preventer device, a kind of emergency shutoff valve. In both cases, metal domes put over the well failed to stop the leaks. Also the news casts from that era are virtually identical to the news casts today. In fact if you can find some old videos from that era you will think you are listening to the newscast of today and what they say about the oil spill

And in both cases, crews turned to something called relief wells dug horizontally through the seafloor to stop the spills, a technique that can take months.

The Ixtoc I was an exploratory well being drilled in 160 feet of water about 60 miles northwest of Ciudad del Carmen on Mexico’s Gulf coast. By comparison, the Deepwater Horizon well is in 5,000 feet deep water.

This disaster is much worse and by being in 5000 feet of water makes the Ixtoc I situation a piece of cake…

I remember the Ixtoc I incident very well. It dumped 3,000,000 barrels of oil so they say. The effects were far reaching and are still able to be found if you go look…

By my calculations Ixtoc I became a baby oil spill in comparison a long time ago. The news, BP and the Government at first was using the Ixtoc I as a comparison because they had no idea that this would ever come near that bad of a spill. That ended quickly…

Guess what?  I think at least 20 million barrels (840,000,000 gallons) of oil have exploded into the Gulf and with this oil is coming some really bad other chemicals. We ourselves have put some really bad chemicals in the water on the oil.

We have just possibly killed the Gulf, can we stop it before we kill the Atlantic? The call now is that it is going to devastate the fishing all through the North end of the world.

Have you seen the videos of the wells and the dolphins that have died from the oil? Have you been looking around and trying to see what is really happening? Do you think it will? Can we stop it? Is the ground fractured at the well? Is evacuation a possibility? Why is the local news being stifled? What if the two relief wells create a bigger problem? Why are local governments being squelched? Why have state governments been pushed aside? Why is the whole damn world not there by the millions to save the planet? Can we Nuke it? Is this all on a unstable fault line in the earths crust? How many places are leaking on the Gulf floor? Have we been lied to? Do you trust the ones in Charge?  …

Lots and lots of questions that need answers and I really do not think that we can answer them. But I wanna know! Now you see why I had heart attacks…

Windows to Russia!
