We wonder out loud why the US Government has not declared this a federal disaster area. Yes, we hear that only natural disaster areas can be declared as such, but this is the worst environmental disaster in US history. Please, President Obama, declare the Gulf of Mexico a disaster area, so that the concerned Gulf States can receive the necessary federal aid to protect themselves from the Black Wave that is around the corner. To stand by and watch this tragedy of epic proportions unfold without taking decisive presidential action is completely unacceptable.
