I been following this for awhile. Apparently a sinkhole has appeared in louisiana out of thin air and is growing. Not supprisingly our US media has ignore this completely (No fatalities so non-event). Check out these two videos to see how large it has grown in just two months.

Pretty sad (Also note the area looks like it is dying.)

What does this mean? There is some kind of agenda in the media that says they can't talk about a sink hole?

The mainstream media has a very anti-sinkhole bias.

someone closed a hellmouth and the media is covering it up.

honestly, i think he meant more along the lines that the media just plain doesn't give a damn.

Have any white people died in this sinkhole? If not, the media couldn't give less of a crap.

No - but the way you said it makes it sound like you mean the media is actively covering up some conspiracy or something. I was just wondering what reason they would have to do that.

Edit: Cleared up in prior post.

Actually, after some quick research I discovered that the proper term for the Capitol is "rat hole" not "sinkhole"

I'd say "cesspool" would be more accurate.

We all know the Government is trying to keep quiet their operations against the Locust. They want to wipe them out without our knowledge. However, I fear tomorrow may be Emergence Day.

I don't think you know how sinkholes work...

If it's in Louisiana then I'd wager it's the government's secret war against the Swamp People. Don't watch their History Channel propaganda folks!

It's in the middle of a swamp in a muddy part of LA?

Plus, if you noticed the oil pad right next to it, it's probably not even a sinkhole. It's probably a small pond that's quite deep and the oil crew is using it for their hydraulic fracturing. In the first video there was no flooding, in the second video there was flooding and the "sinkhole" looked bigger, when in doubt it just looked like it rained..

I'd have to do more research but no oil company would drill a 2-4 million dollar well and it be maybe 100ft near a sinkhole. There would be way too many safety hazards, controversy, and Government regulation.

I am working on a project now for a sinkhole in Carlsbad New Mexico, that's a real sinkhole. No water in sight, taking place basically in a salt formation called the Salado. It's more of a salt cavern though that keeps expanding. Pretty interesting stuff.
