    I made a drag for shrimp outside the galveston jetties directly in the ship channel once. The net came up with shrimp wrapped in tar balls.

    Hopefully, since your care for the environment is so heartfelt and sincere, that number would be zero. Am I right? You concerned liberals wouldn't be big, fat hypocrites, would you?
    Any day now, ladies. Get to typing on those plastic keys and tell me all about how environmentally conscious you are.

    I thought the spill had already hit. No doubt the envirowhacks are rubbing their hands together at the possibilities of what they can do with this crisis. Remember you must never fail to take advantage of a good crisis for political gain.

    I know what you mean, but I will try to refrain from making this a political thing because it effects everyone.

    What people don't realize is that unless they want to walk to work and the grocery store, THEY are the reasons these wells are even out there. If you own a car, it's because of YOU. And if the wells weren't out there, we'd be even MORE reliant on foreign oil than we already are and thus would be giving more money to terrorist nations like Iran.

    Drilling for oil is a dangerous business. It can be made safer, but it is dangerous. Driving a prius doesn't help, it still uses gas. Only a bicycle helps. This is a really bad thing that happened, but it just reiterates how important my fathers job is, justifying flying all those inspectors out to check on wells and such. How many lives it has saved can't be counted because we'll never know but obviously if one life is saved its worth it!

    In order to answer this, it will require their plugged-in computer, which is inside their air-conditioned home, which houses their gas-powered car, which transports them to their energy-dependent place of employment.

    Oh, this is Christmas in April for those scumbags. Don't be fooled by the looks of concern and consternation. This is their jackpot.

    Ah, so that's why it got so quiet in here!

    Odd though. In this case Obama was trying to move forward on some offshore drilling energy plan soon, and it's political pressure as a result of this crisis that will likely make it either halt or be removed.
