108. What big lie are you specifically referring to?
Is it that volatiles actually do evaporate? Is it that the clean up in the Gulf and on the Gulf coast (conducted by a lot of concerned, hard working folks who actually live here and not by flaming heads on internet boards) has actually had a significant impact? Is it that better than 3/4ths of the Gulf was not affected by the spill and remained open to commercial and recreational fishing? Is it that the NOAA reopened 26,388 square miles of the previously restricted area to commercial fishing on July 22? Is that New Orleans and other Gulf cities are not, in fact, toxic wastelands? Is that Gulf seafood from unrestricted areas is actually safe?

Or is the big lie you're referring to the one being pounded ceaselessly here on DU -- that Gulf seafood is poison, that the Gulf coast and Gulf cities are irretrievable toxic wastelands, that no one should go near the Gulf because there are "cancers" and "life threatening diseases" to be contracted there, and that the Gulf will never recover and is destroyed forever? You know, the big, malicious lies from the apocalypse fetishists who could give a rat's ass about the meaningless little people who actually live and work on the Gulf coast?
