    I see this as a prudent and responsible move. Until they figure out what happened, they shoudldn't be opening up new wells.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    how much more can we stand?
    Hint: read the article. This bans new drilling during the investigation. Care to explain how that is "tens of thousands" of jobs?

    And there are enough new oil rigs that would account for "tens of thousands" of jobs in the next couple months? You can document that?

    LOL!

    So you have no documentation for your claim of "tens of thousands" of jobs. Where exactly did you pull that number out of?

    Re: US bans offshore drilling as Deepwater Horizon slick hits land

    a microscope

    meanwhile, NOT A SINGLE FIRE BOOM ON HAND

    Despite plan, not a single fire boom on hand on Gulf Coast at time of oil spill | al.com

    he had to go BUY ONE

    on DAY EIGHT

    ONE BOOM

    it's all he could get

    he's trying to BORROW more from south america

    in grotesque juxtaposition, "In the days after the rig sank, U.S Coast Guard Rear Admiral Mary Landry said the government had all the assets it needed," reports the register

    noaa says, "burning could have captured 95 percent of the oil as it spilled from the well."

    "all hands on deck," he SAYS, "from day one," his MANTRA...

    pathetic

    c
    Wrong. Burning would have only destroyed 30% at the most. This is light crude on rough seawater, not gasoline.
    It's funny how the free market people scream for government to bail them out when things get out of hand.
