Is it just me or does it also appear to others that not much is being done on the Federal level to help the regions affected by the recent oil-spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico? I mean, it almost appears as though someone is trying to prove a point about the pit falls of off-shore drilling for oil. To leave everything in the hands of BP seems as though such might not be the most productive solution. Why is not several of our hundreds of Navy ships working the clean-up efforts too - or are they? Why are not volunteers being enlisted/hired to try and catch the oil at sea - or are they? Is it believed that any proactive clean-up at sea would be a waste of time? Does all this appear as odd to anyone other than me? Am I misinformed here?
