    crazy I know, but I think we'll see BP under $10

    So is Cancun , Cozumel and US Virgin Islands all wiped out? What 200 billion Tourist industry are you talking about? Lousisana Shrimp boat tours?

    • If you disturb a wild a$$ on federal land, you're looking at prison and $50k fine. Now imagine pollution millions of acres of pristine marsh, inland coastal waterways, homes, boats, etc. $100 billion for several million acres is peanuts. Just imagine all the tourist businesses that are directly affected by the mess. Then extrapolate all the indirect businesses that feed off of those. You're talking an entire ecosystem suffering massive environmental, social and economic damages. It's hilarious people like you try to downplay $hit like Mesothelioma associated with asbestos. Remember, it wasn't just the miners...it was the entire chain beyond. Again, not to link BP with Owens, but you optimists are almost ALWAYS dead wrong. FYI? Florida is going to have MASSIVE lawsuits. If it enters the Everglades and fowls that up, BP is done. The federal fines and criminal problems will bk it legally in fighting defense. Ohbummer is going to sink one of these Big Oil concerns at some point.
