    I saw one report about an under water river of oil on the media, but have heard nothing about it since. The river of oil was twenty two miles wide and two hundred miles long headed for Alabama.

    Meanwhile there was just a news blitz about how people should still go on vacation there.

    What specific legislation forced them to have to drill a mile underwater? I was under the impression they were building there simply because they could get more oil and turn more of a profit.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    What does Obama even have directly to do with this? At this point, it looks like you're just trolling.

    Please, explain the logic of that statement. Be sure to include links that back up the 'thought process' you used to reach that conclusion.
    It doesn't take "links" to explain that drilling in shallow water, or ON LAND, which environmentalists fight with every breath, is far easier, less costly, and much safer than having to go out to 5,000-foot deep water to do the same. The reason we can't plug the hole right now is because of where the hole is, and you can thank the enviros for that.

    Do you need a link to understand this?

    How do you figure it is the enviros fault? They are the least to blame or no blame at all. Since big oil lobbyists outspend them about a thousand to one, or more, it does not sound like a sound argument to me.

    I can see the headlines: "Big oil blames tree huggers for oil spill"

    Because there is absolutely no reason we need to be that far off shore to drill for the buttload of oil we're standing right on top of.

    Question: Why isn't a demolition crew being sent in to seal the leak the old fashioned way? Does that not work with underwater drilling?

    Just asking.

    This whole situation including the government's handling of it is sickening.
    What is the old fashion, exactly?

    I think we should be drilling it all. If we don't go that far off shore to drill for the oil that is there, then someone else will. Do you really want Chinese oil rigs in the GOM?

    The legislation that doesn't allow them to drill in shallower waters off the coast of California, FLorida, The Carolinas, Virginia, etc.
