BP workers don’t get $500/day, only $10/hr. and 12 hr. days and apparently they are all sick from the oil, just like the wild life, because they had no protective covering provided by BP.

BP isn’t acting any differently than any other
oil company…

We are as guilty as BP for what is happening
We all know that we kill for oil
destroy any thing in the path for oil,

yet, the sale of oil goes on with little in fluctuation
in the use.

maybe now you will all know how the Iraqi’ feel,and
the Nigerians, and the Ecuador, and on and on and on
NOw go vote ur favorite Dem or Repub.

I understand BP will pay workers $500/day to gather up oil on the Gulf Coast, but I wonder, is it possible for workers to keep up with the ONE MILLION GALLONS of oil steadily gushing out of the broken well, that still hasn’t been repaired?
