BP repositions cap over oil gusher

[Updated at 10:35 p.m.] BP has successfully repositioned a containment cap over the underwater gusher in the Gulf of Mexico after it removed the device earlier in the day when an undersea robot struck it.

[Published at 7:04 p.m.] BP has begun efforts to reinstall a containment cap over the underwater oil gusher after it was removed out of caution when a remote-operated vehicle bumped into one of the cap's vents, a BP spokesman said Wednesday.

The cap had been removed earlier Wednesday.

    This shows that Republicans are still in control. They know that OBAMA may know something about Law and Biden knows zilch about anything. Palin, Bush and Cheney know the most about how to fiddle with oil. So Cheney got his boys to bust the oilwell, knowing that his company, Halliburton, had the technology to repair the busted well. They are just sitting on the sideline and watching OBAMA and BIDEN sweat. After a while they will take over the spill fix it and then get back in power.

    When we think about oil, and the drilling - which is horrible - and start laying blame on the gas guzzling car society we live in, and we do live in such a society, I have to wonder what is even worse. Our cars, which are far better than even just 10 years ago in re: emissions and use of ethanoyl, etc. or the fact that we demand cheap products and food imported from all around the world – toys and clothing from Asia to Tomatoes in February from Mexico. If we, as a country, would demand that the goods and food products we consume were made in America, locally grown and not shipped creating demand for heavy container vessels traveling across the very seas that BP's oil is destroying, maybe we would all be better off? More jobs, less oil used, less environmental impact to our consumerism, better products, a stronger country that is self sufficient.

    We need to bring America back within our borders. We need to shop locally, from local merchants not big chains who bring in cheap goods from other countries at exorbitant hidden prices. Start to think, people, about what you are buying and make sure it is made in America, grown regionally and sold seasonally.

    Hi BP:
    To stop the leak, please try dumping tons of cement or concrete on the leaking pipe.
