    Are these pre-recorded talking points or did you just pop over to moveon.org and copy their front page?

    You obviously did, though.
    Actually I'm just following the far left nutjobs who always blame bush for everything that goes wrong.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    After all, it must be that easy.
    We do need reform in our educational system as well. We must get away from this silly green fad crap.
    Solar energy is and has been a economically feasible source of energy since the advent of man...Yet so few know about this...Same with wind energy..Yet some think its a big joke. Maybe part of the oil spill problem may be engineers with the same crummy attitude concerning the strength and stability of their oil lines.

    This one wasn't producing yet. The only thing that might spill is diesel fuel, but so far, it hasn't. If it does, there is already a containment boom around it, so there is not going to be any spill.

    This one is much ado about nothing. However, the first one is a nightmare, and will be much worse than Exxon Valdez was, but only a fraction as bad as the Gulf War spill.

    Yes, there's lots of oil, but it will get harder and harder to extract it as time goes on. In any case, it's a limited resource whereas solar/wind is limitless and nuclear is effectively limitless.
