Nobody wins if this gets worse.



    You got to be kidding? You can't seriously believe you aren't a partisan hack, you calling ANYONE a partisan is irony personified. Seriously, are you seriously suggesting you are objective when it comes to left right politics?

Land-nav, DnC, general knowledge, medical, and I got the best time dismantling/reassembling the M16 with a passing functions check.....we were baddass.

    So while I was out being a winner with the Guard this weekend, did the world end?

    But no seriously, did they lower the top-hat or insert that tube yet? Any news of any sort?

    ...technical news, not 'some politician/op-ed/talking-head said ABC' or 'some tree-huger said ZOMG Oh noes!1!!'....anything at least pretending to be semi-intelligent?

    Hey pal, get over yourself. Neither you nor your service “intimidates” anybody. Hell, I didn’t even know you were in the service. You were the one who brought your service into the discussion to give you some kind of excuse for your trivializing and politicizing this disaster, another right wing tactic. Why do some of you guys think that once your partisan bull**** is exposed that your “service to your country” is going to excuse your behavior?

    As for my article, I got home from drill,
    Oh, are you in the “service”? Ooooohhhh….. We better give your posts more credit then, or give you more leeway with your personal attacks,ehh?

    logged to see what the world was up to, clicked on the "Latest Headlines" button at the top of FireFox and found something which was news to me. If it's biased, that's fine, I didn't write it so I have nothing to worry about. I read every other article sourced on this thread so it's not like I have a limited scope of news consumption relative to your own.
    If “your scope” was “not limited”, and you are indeed informed of info that debunks your silly positions here, then it’s obvious your opinion is not to be given much credit. Don’t act like you don’t have a dog in this fight. Any excuse to attack Obama, or the left, works fine for you… even when your position is proven to be wrong or have holes in it.

    My interest in the story is technical, not political,
    Bull****. It’s another excuse to attack Obama and try to make fun of people who care about our environment, as IF they are all leftees.

    so from my perspective biased sources which give more technical information are of more value than unbiased sources which only discuss opinion or policy.
    Technical information? Such as?

    So what if this spill is currently bigger than the Exxon Valdez? So the ****
    what?

    I'm not trying to be crass what I ask that.
    Sure you are. You revel in riling up folks, who you wrongly assume are mostly on the left, who actually live down there and will be personally affected by it. Some of those people are even on your side of the political fence. THEY get it. This oil leak is not political. It is reality. But, to you, it is just another reason to make fun of something that you think will give you a free shot at Obama. Pathetic. There comes a time when the sword of politics should be laid down to fight a common enemy. You are a symbol of what’s wrong with politics these days.

    This spill is nothing compared to other spills much larger, AND you never heard anything about those spills because a politician didn't need political will to make policy.
    This has the potential to have a much bigger impact than the Valdez did, even if it doesn’t get bigger than it. And it’s obvious you don’t care about any of the implications of that.

    Blow-outs happen all the ****ing time. All the ****ing time. Obviously this blow
    out was hosting a faulty BOP, and **** got spilled. When this thread started we
    were talking 5K barrels per day. Seriously that's nothing. 5K is nothing…
    Except that, if the leak doesn’t get plugged, or controlled, then the leak will surpass the Exxon Valdez in about 52 days. The Valdez was a major disaster and it happened in an unpopulated area. This leak is in the #1 fishing area in the U.S. THAT would make it a pretty big ****ing deal.

    And now we know, from one of the survivors from the rig, that BP was the one responsible for breaking that BOP. And BP KNEW it was broke! It should be interesting to hear your retort to that. Somehow it's probably Obama's fault, I'm sure.

    … and you folks were crying like it was the end of the world. If this thread had started with either accurate numbers of a leveled response to the very low number of 5K,
    maybe my contributions would have been angled differently.
    How so? At the time, those numbers were accepted by most people to be accurate.

    So the left pissed it's pants over 5K per day, only to later realize it's over
    10x that. Frankly I'm surprised the Left didn't commit mass suicide over the
    news.
    psst::: There are a lot of Republicans on our southern shores who are “pissing their pants” over this and it has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with their lives!

    At least this time it's not America's fault. Valdez was a drunk American
    skipper, if I recall correctly. Deepwater was European owned rig leased to a
    European company.
    Actually, it IS America’s fault. And it goes back to your heroes Bush and Cheeney. They started gutting the oil regs, allowing companies like BP to basically act in our waters like they do in other countries where there are no regs. True enough that our own MMS is to blame for this too. But, considering it’s full of Cheeney puppets it comes as no surprise how they’ve acted.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.

    The truth is that you aren't open minded enough to tell the difference. People on here try to talk to you with an "open mind" all the time, to no avail. They are usually surprised when you 1) call them "partisan", when they're simply being "open minded", and then you 2) attack them personally. Oi vey!

    Then why the hell are you so intimidated? It's not like I'm a special forces war vet...calm the **** down man.

    See that's what I'm talkin about. Just take a second, breath, get something to drink, take a moment.





    Feel better?
    Good.

    I was just relying the events. I got home, plugged back into the world, gave the first quick update I saw that wasn't all about "...blah blah blah policy blah blah blah school trip to see the oil..."

    The astute member will note that I haven't insulted President Obama since 02FEB10, and that's no matter of coincidence

    Well ok you got me there, I do like making fun of alarmists.

    Yeah now they have a pipe in it and beginning to siphon off the oil.

    Holy ****!! A Leftie FINELY mentioned the survivors!! It's only been...what...nearly a month...are you sure you won't get in trouble? Better talk about the cute lil fluffy animals before Mikel Moore makes a documentary about you.

    Nop, sorry, Obama owns everything after 6 months in office. He's the man at the top, he holds the office, he has the authoritah, he has the responsibility.

    Alright, now to clean this up and work on responding to your technical interest.

    I loves me some science and problem solving. I love it. I like learning about how oil drilling works, the different classes of rigs, what a "BOP" is and the 2 different types....all that.

    A mile down there's a big leak, equipment failed to automatically activate, then failed again to respond to manual activation. How the **** do you get this under control? Use a "dome"? WTF is a "dome"..makes Google search. It failed? Why? Methane hydrates? WTF is that......Google search. They're going to try a "top-hat", WTF is a "top-hat"....Google search.

    I can't wait for the History Channel to make the Mega Disasters episode for the spill. I ****ing love that ****. Gimmy some History Channel, some Modern Marvels, some MythBusters...mmm delicious!!
