    There is a difference between political reasons and personal retaliatory reasons. You know that but if you want to play the stupid con be my guest.

    It will all come out in court one way or another. Either way it's a he said she said type of thing so I can't say who is at fault at this point.

    I'm simply pointing out the hypocrisy from your camp.

    Say what????

    Wastewater from offshore drilling is being dumped into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California, and it’s apparently legal.
