    You have been proven wrong. Be a man and admit it.

    Oil Platform Platforms Structure Production Rig Floating Gas
    Our conversation started out talking about drilling rigs. Not every single structure that happens to be owned by an oil company that exists in the gulf.

    You said that there are thousands of rigs, meaning drilling rigs, operating in the gulf and you're dead wrong. It doesn't matter how many times your post the same information from different sources, you're still wrong.

    The fact is, drilling rigs employ hundreds of people. Production platforms employ 5. Let's open drilling and put people to work. That would be a good thing, right?

    Now you want to come back after it has been pointed out that not all of the "rigs" are used for drilling, and say well they're all the same? Nah, that doesn't work.....

    It was two different sentences. We have been drilling our oil for over a century and all the rigs in the Gulf prove it. Understand?

    Rigs mean platforms too.

    Drilling is open. There are millions of square miles that can be drilled. The problem is drilling has been cut back by oil companies since demand has dropped.

    I was making the point that we have been drilling for the last hundred years and all the "rigs" in the gulf prove it.

    Electric cars aren't any good, either.

    Electricity isn't the best means of propulsion, period.

    Almost ALL cities are "oil reliant".

    Last time I checked, the planet is still alive.

    I was being serious.

    Unlike you, I've a background as a nuclear power plant operator.

    AND, I think Mecca would be a most excellent place to dump our ****, even our glow in the dark ****.

    Yes, Chernobyl, permanent evidence that socialist countries suck.

    Who but a socialist country would run an antique unsafe reactor like that?

    Nothing comparable has ever happened in any civilized nation.

    You mean there's no reason we can't have oil and coal and nuclear power AND wind power AND solar power.

    They're the roadblock, he may as well, as the Party's leader, get all the credit for every screw up the Democrats make.

    Isn't that a MUCH better plan than blaming Bush for every screwup the Democrats make?
