Garland Robinette is talking to Billy Nungusser, president of Plaquemines Parish about preparations for the oil spill coming ashore on WWL radio right now. Billy said there are 6 hours left before the winds shift to the south. There are hundreds of fisher people willing to lay the boom out to protect Plaquemines. There are no booms in Plaquemines Parish. What gives?
This video said there's boom out there
Billy is close to tears out of frustration. It's unbelievable, just like Katrina. The Coast Guard and BP are "handling" this horrendous situation while our fragile wetlands and coastline sit unprotected.
Our president tells BP they're paying for the whole mess. You think this is gonna happen? Obama is stepping up the government's response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill by sending three Cabinet members to oversee the effort. Do they have booms?
Joining Interior Secretary Ken Salazar at the site will be Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and environmental protection administrator Lisa Jackson.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the administration also may send military ships and personnel to help control damage from the spill. Will they be here this afternoon??
Just give the booms to the fishermen in St. Bernard and Plaquemines, y'all. We can protect ourselves, as those in charge have their heads up their asses, as usual.
