Poison, Baby, Poison!!

More and more stories about sick fishermen are beginning to surface after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The fishermen are working out in the Gulf -- many of them all day, every day -- to clean up the spill. They said they blame their ailments on the chemicals that BP is using.

One fisherman said he felt like he was going to die over the weekend.

"I've been coughing up stuff," Gary Burris said. "Your lungs fill up."

Burris, a longtime fisherman who has worked across the Gulf Coast, said he woke up Sunday night feeling drugged and disoriented.

"It was like sniffing gasoline or something, and my ears are still popping," Burris said. "I'm coughing up stuff. I feel real weak, tingling feelings."

Marine toxicologist Riki Ott said the chemicals used by BP can wreak havoc on a person's body and even lead to death.

Lovely. So BP's solution to their horrendous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Dump even more toxic goop into the water.

If they can find a way to issue an arrest warrant for Lindsay Lohan, why the fuck can't we be frog-marching some of these BP executives and some of their criminal cohorts in the Minerals Management Service off to the prison block?

Just asking . . .
