    How did I misrepresent what you said? You complained about Obama being the "CEO of the world," implying that his involvement is a bad thing. But OK, let's unassume for a moment: You don't want the government out entirely...you just want them LESS involved. So then I have the same question, just replace "rely solely" with "rely primarily."



    So then your solution *is* to rely primarily on the companies that create disasters to clean them up in the future? They are not motivated by preventing as much harm as possible; they are motivated by saving as much money as possible. Those two goals do not always overlap.
    OMG!! Why do you keep throwing Halliburton into the mix? Seriously! Why?!? Do you think that Halliburton is the only srvice company to work on that rig?

    Why aren't you tirading Cooper-Cameron? They built the BOP.

    I will point out that this was simply "alleged" by a Palestinian official. If he said it or not is up for debate I suppose.

    Rumor is as good as fact to a Liberal.

    Is that really the best response you have?

    BTW, got any proof that it was on, "false pretenses"?

    Umm because Halliburton was the company that was working there at the time it exploded.
    If any other companies were involved, of course they should be held responsible too. But BP and Halliburton (and possibly TransOcean) were the only companies who appear to have been responsible.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    And, that is evidence of what exactly? Are you certain that Halliburton was the only service company working on the rig at the time?

    I've heard several completely idiotic explanations of how this well blew out. I await with baited breath to hear your's. Please, by all means, grace us...

    I didn't say it was evidence of anything. I said that it's BP and/or Halliburton's fault, which is true. Which one (or both), I do not know. You are the one foaming at the mouth to defend Halliburton for no discernible reason.

    The people on the rig were employees of BP, Halliburton, and TransOcean.

    And Weatherford and MI Swaco and Sunoco and Cooper Cameron and Chouest...shall I keep going? Or, do you want to provide some--any--documentation to prove who dicked up to cause this blow out?



    How the hell should I know?
    That should be the crux of all your posts on this subject. But, instead, you are certain that Halliburton had something to with **** going wrong.
