    In the past TWO months (and also in the next TWO months) BP has adopted (and will adopt) :::ONLY::: its own (and ALL failed) "methods" COMPLETELY IGNORING all the (SEVERAL THOUSANDS) ideas and suggestions (can, ALL them, be wrong???) that they have (FALSELY) asked for, from experts and common people.
    .
    So, the BP's "ask for ideas" was/is/will be a TOTAL LIE (like its "only 5,000 barrels spilled per day" claim...) and the 200,000,000 gallons of oil (already gushed or that will be spilled in the ocean in the next months) will be a complete BP's responsibility, since, it would AVOIDED, if BP would adopt one of the dozens possible ideas able to STOP the oil spill from the EARLY DAYS like (e.g.) the "crimping" of the damaged oil riser, using one or more of their giant SHEARS rather than cut the riser forever.

    The Bush Family Values that Republicans didn't want America to learn about:

    In 2001 Bush jr's youngest brother Marvin bought a garbage and waste disposal company for the sum of 12 Million dollars with the sole goal of dumping as much toxic waste and America's inter-city garbage as it possibly could in a landfill in rural Virgina.

    The Virgina State permit allowed him to dump no more than 250 tons per day. Marvin Bush dumped 6,500 TONS of toxic waste and inter-State Garbage PER DAY!

    By Virgina State law, such enormous abuse is punishable by a misdemeanor charge of 1 year in prison and a $2,500 fine PER DAY of over dumping. The Virgina State Environmental inspector left his job and went to work for Marvin Bush's toxic dumping business! Although the Democratic Lt. Governor of Virgina blew the whistle on Marvin Bush's illegal toxic dump site in July 2003, the Republican State Attorney General appeared to turn a blind eye on the illegal toxic dumping and Marvin Bush continued to dump more than 1,000 tons of toxic waste and various States garbage DAILY for another full eight months!

    The State of Virgina finally ordered the landfill site closed in Virgina on March 2004. It took Virgina taxpayers putting up 8.7 Million dollars to re-open that landfill. The Virgina Republican State Attorney General never fined Marvin Bush nor charged him with hundreds of criminal charges allotted for each day in violation of the Virgina State permit.

    During a Larry King interview with Bush sr., it was disclosed how close Bush jr. is with his younger brother Marvin Bush. 'Former president Bush jr. would often go to camp david, call Marvin and have Marvin stay with him at Camp David during his countless retreats and vacations away from the oval office'.

    The vast corruption of the Bush Family and in particular Marvin Bush in this posting reminds me of the Steven Seagal 1997 movie, 'Fire Down Below' where Seagal played a federal EPA agent fighting intense graft and corruption by a very well connected toxic waste 'dumper' and 'disposer' who made vast amounts of money by illegally dumping toxic and often hazardous waste in the rural backwoods of nearby Kentucky.

    How ironic the utter corruption and absolute disregard of the residents of Kentucky depicted in the movie 'Fire Down Below' would later come to life by one of the Bush Family members in rural Virgina. As depicted in the movie, even the State EPA head was in fact employed by the illegal toxic dumper!
