Washington, DC (Vocus) May 26, 2010
The Gulf Oil Spill Help Center was created to be the ultimate help, resource & advocacy group for victims in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, and Alabama effected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and disaster. The group is saying, "aside from helping Louisiana families who work in the fishing, or seafood industries, our primary focus at this moment are owners of Louisiana recreational properties called fishing camps. With the oil still pouring out of the well-our fear is its just a matter of time before the oil creeps its way into the Louisiana bayous, and devastates the value of these Louisiana fishing camps." The group says,"we are demanding President Obama do a little more than stop by on Friday to check it out. For one-Why is BP still running the show? Why does the US have a Coast Guard-or-an EPA-if not for disasters like this. A big fat useless federal government at its best." The Gulf Oil Spill Help Center is urging recreational property owners, or fishing camp owners in Louisiana to call the group and get identified anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://GulfOilSpillHelpCenter.Com
The Gulf Oil Spill Help Center is saying, "we are putting pressure on the Obama Administration because its been over a month-&-BP is still running the show? President Obama appears to only respond to disasters if they are on TV-----as an example-ever hear of toxic Chinese drywall?----Its only effected 100,000's of homeowners primarily in the US Southeast-President Obama has yet to mention it one time in public since taking office." The group says,"we are not going to allow big oil companies, or a rudderless US Federal Government-fail Louisiana property owners as a result of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster. We rode out Katrina as volunteers at a Hospital in New Orleans-and we are not going to let anyone in Louisiana, or any other Gulf State get forgotten in this mess." For more information Louisiana fishing camp owners, or recreational property owners in any Gulf State can call the Gulf Oil Spill Help Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://GulfOilSpillHelpCenter.Com
Update: AP Venice, Louisiana, Governor Bobby Jindal:“We can fight this battle fifteen miles off our coasts,” belted Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, in a furious and desperate press conference held on the docks this afternoon in Venice, hub for the Deepwater response, “or we can be cleaning oil out of our fragile marshes for months or years.”
At his side, a young staff member held a poster board with pictures: an adult pelican doused in black oil, a colony of partially oiled pelicans, pelican eggs smeared with oil.
Jindal fired off a list of complaints with those handling the spill and energetically proposed solutions, continuously castigating BP, the Coast Guard and the Army Corp of Engineers. Communities have requested boom and none has come, or it has arrived after oil has already slicked their beaches, or boom has been available but boats intended to lay it have been idled by BP.
According to the Gulf Oil Spill Help Center, "what most US citizens don't realize is we get 40% of our fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, the oil well is still spewing out 10,000's of gallons of crude oil a day-and the coastal areas we are talking about are super fragile-we lose them-they are gone----just to give you a clue how clueless the Feds are-- the Obama Administration's head of Homeland Security referred to the Gulf of Mexico as an Ocean? DC at its best." http://GulfOilSpillHelpCenter.Com
