    Links for what, champ? You don't even know what questions to ask.

    Go educate yourself or prepare to be clowned yet again.

    I must say, the term 'douche bag' is highly overused at this site...

    Cliches become that for a reason, usually there is a pretty good utility behind it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    For the measly amount that's harvested vs. the amount of damage that it creates, call me crazy, but I guess I am one of those douchbags that thinks it should be shut down.

    These people are too stupid to realize that, since there are not now any alternatives to petroleum, shutting down offshore drilling will simply make everything we now buy more expensive and make the US even more beholden to Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, etc. They are too stupid to realize that they are directly benefiting from offshore drilling, thus they themselves are part of "the problem," so it is absolutely ridiculous and the height of hypocrisy for them to start pointing fingers at the big, bad oil companies.
    It's a double-edged sword, Coronado. Offshore drilling is a band-aid solution. It give a little more life into our oil dependent lifestyle that most of us only know. But it HAS to change eventually. And the only way it's going to is desperation. As long as things are mostly status quo, NOTHING will change. So I am all for $10.00 a gallon gas.

    Furthermore, I doubt that the pittance of oil we retrieve off-shore will make a dent, especially in the amounts we use! However, I am not sure of this, so let me look it up.

    I'm most definitely not in favor of environmental degredation of any sort, despite the words that some of the brain-dead on this thread seek to place in my mouth. Yes, this spill is a tremendous disaster with long-reaching negative effects. It shouldn't just be glossed over.
    I don't think you are and I agree that the impact is disastrous.

    But at the same time, it isn't the end of the world, and it is not some sort of endemic problem. This month the US was operating 1,482 rigs in the Gulf. 1,481 of them had no major problems. This whole issue is in serious need of a little perspective.
    It only takes one mistake. Can you imaging if they'd all fail?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    "self-righteous douchebags" . That's where I stop reading.

    WTG Mr.
    Some people can't express themselves civilly so, they have to resort to bullying. It's akin to being annoyed by a swarm of mosquitos. When you call them on some ridiculous claim, asking them to provide any evidence, they can't because they were bull****ting. Then, being out of options they... call... people names. Oi vey!
