Biblical Proportions

3The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.

4The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.5Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
"You are just in these judgments,
you who are and who were, the Holy One,
because you have so judged..."


Some sobering words from the Holy Bible. Not that the oil spill is necessarily what this verse alludes to, but I find it quite sobering that the photos taken of the oil spill on the surface of the Gulf of Mexico waters eerily appear as blood.

Obviously this is a horrific ecological and economic disaster (and not to forget the deaths of the employees that were working on the oil rig when it exploded!) Whether this will be "Obama's Katrina" remains to be seen, but even if the oil leakage were stopped tomorrow, the damage has already been done.

Here is a YouTube video from Puppetgovcom (check out his channel) that summarizes well the stupidity and peril that has resulted from this tragedy.

The video directly below is a speech given by a woman from Louisiana who was permitted to sit in on some of the meetings when they discussed the oil spill disaster and the mitigation efforts. She has some credible accusations about how those in charge of the clean-up (which is obviously the Federal Government and BP since they won't let local authorities do anything without being on a leash) are stonewalling efforts and showboating for media while the problem goes unresolved.
