Once the lawyers get the party started on the Gulf coast, they can follow the oil slick up the East coast. Sure, some lawyers are going to get super-rich, but BP/Halliburton/Transocean et al. ALL screwed the pooch on this one. There are going to be suits from this incident still being litigated when yet-unborn children graduate from high school. And there will still be oil on the coasts.

For the love of all that is evil...

Of COURSE the lawyers are headed there... they can smell money like a good hunting dog smells ducks...

God forbid that any of them actually do something to HELP the situation, they're too busy lining their pockets...

Here's my scientific contribution to fixing the mess: engineer a F5 tornado to suck all the oil off the water's surface and deposit it quite far out at sea. Or, over Florida.

/try looking for certainty in the mechanics of a tornado

My father and grandfather are probably spinning in their graves.

/Lawyers, both of them. They worked with enough oil workers around here.
//I was prohibited from becoming one, not that I really had the interest.
///Some of those companies really are the scum of the earth.
////Then again, given how dangerous that work is, so are many of the workers, since few sane people without criminal records would do that kind of work willingly.
//But I'm sure none of the dead and injured were those kind of people.
//I just keep digging my own hole... D:
//How many slashies will it take to cover my ass w.r.t. karma?
//OK, I think I'll just shut up now.

Those who were, or will be, harmed by this incident need to be made whole. In other words, If your a fisherman, and you can't work for the next five years, you are entitled to five years of your income in compensation; AFTER legal fees. Of course once you get the lawyers involved, that same fisherman who had been dirt poor and struggling to survive on $15k a year take home will be suing for 1.5 million. Repeat that process many thousands of times.
Next the lawyers will bring in the quack doctors, who will "find" all kinds of health ailments caused by the oil spill in anyone and everyone within 100 miles of any oil being washed up on a beach. People in New Orleans are already claiming that they can smell the oil, and are experiencing burning in their throats and lungs. I'm sure they can feel compensation setting in already.

This is a man made disaster, and those guilty should have to pay for it. Unfortunately, a huge number of people will treat this like they won the lottery and sue for Brazilions. And what p*sses me off about our system, is that many of those who sue will not have a valid claim. And the bottom feeding lawyers will be not only supporting this fraud, many will help create it.

In the end, the consumer will pay for everything.

And why shouldn't we? We are the ultimate benefactors. Why should they sell their products at a loss?

All right you lawyers for BP. Listen up!

I spent 30 years offshore in the Gulf of Mexico on drilling rigs. It would be a simple act to smuggle explosives onto a rig. This was an act of terrorism. I'm surprised Al Qaeda hasn't taken responsibility yet.

File this along with the story that the North Koreans torpedo'd the South Korean built rig.

Napolitano - 1984 - 1993 attorney with Lewis & Roca.

Obama - 1993 - 1996 attorney with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.

Salazar - 1981 - 1987 attorney at Sherman & Howard.

Yeah, but if it wasn't for the lawyers, what would stop BP from just walking away? You mock, but you need. You want us on that fence.

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE NON-LAWSUITS.
